ON THIS DAY – June 23, 1978

A dramatic, police-backed, television re-enactment of 12 year old Denise McGregor’s rape and murder prompted a huge community response in 1978 when it was shown during evening television news on Channel 0, now Channel 10, over three nights from the 23rd to the 25th of June. A scene depicting Denise played by Cathrine Lawson, being repeatedly beaten with a crowbar was cut after complaints to the Broadcasting Tribunal. The homicide squad, defended the graphic re-enactment, saying they wanted to move people enough to make them come forward with information. Sadly this is still an unsolved crime.

 

Rug up and join the team at Twisted History on this cold winters night on a Ghost tour or Investigation of the Geelong Gaol or a murder tour of Chinatown.

The Geelong Gaol has seen many people pass through its doors in its 142 year history.  Many of them would call this cold, impenetrable fortress home for a period of time.  Many would never leave it again ….

Chinatown is the oldest Chinese community outside of Asia.  It has been the scene of murders, crime, drugs and prostitution. Hear of Chinatowns links to some if the more infamous events in Victorian history such as the Gun Alley Murder, Eureka Stockade and Jack the Ripper.

But as for Friday the 13th …….

The fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name: “triskaidekaphobia”; and on analogy to this the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, from the Greek words Paraskeví (meaning “Friday”), and dekatreís (meaning “thirteen”).

The superstition surrounding this day may have arisen in the Middle Ages, “originating from the story of Jesus’ last supper and crucifixion” in which there were 13 individuals present in the Upper Room on the 13th of Nisan Maundy Thursday, the night before his death on Good Friday.  While there is evidence of both Friday and the number 13 being considered unlucky, there is no record of the two items being referred to as especially unlucky in conjunction before the 19th century

At 8pm, be led on a 90 minute tour by one of our costumed guides talking of the gaol’s history, prisoners stories, executions and of course, the ghost stories, through the darkened halls and cells of an intact 19th century prison.

At 10pm, our investigators will take Mum to the “hot spots” of the gaol to use the paranormal equipment to try and capture evidence that the paranormal truly does exist!  This experience lasts for 2 hours.
