Paul Steven Haigh, Serial Killer and now jailhouse author


So this is what our worst KILLERS do apart from wasting time and money on appeals and other applications to keep themselves in the spotlight.

THEY WRITE BLOODY BOOKS

What a despicable man this killer is. With total disregard for anybody or anything but himself, how the hell has he even managed to pen this inside jail? He deserves nothing but the very basics, enough to eat, sleep and breath. A few years back he was one of very few, ever allowed out, to go to his mothers funeral. To “Pay respects” He deserves none, this has to end and never see the light of day as a published book. let him use it for toilet paper, and give him none until he has wiped his ass with his all his own…but never to spread his evil…

VICTORIA’S worst serial killer mocks the bereaved relatives of his victims in a chilling new book.

Paul Haigh, 53, said it was a "needless cruelty" to keep him locked up with no chance of parole, although he acknowledged the community might be outraged if he were ever released.

Paul Steven Haigh says loved ones of his seven victims need to get over their “inadequacy” and get on with life.

The Media  has obtained a copy of the manuscript in which the killer tries to shift the blame on to his victims.

One chapter contains a harrowing account of two of his murders.

The book, The House of the Blue Light, has surfaced as Haigh battles in court for freedom.

Sentenced to seven life jail terms, he wants to be given a minimum non-parole term.

The manuscript contains a harrowing account of how Haigh murdered Sheryle Gardner and her son, Danny Mitchell, 9, in 1979.

Haigh decided Ms Gardner had to die because she knew too much about his crimes.

“I shot the mother first. Then, while consoling the boy, I shot him with the second gun when his back was turned to me,” he writes.

Haigh says that bereaved relatives should let go of their hatred for him.

“I’ve got no intention of endlessly flagellating myself with memories of murder or anything else,” he writes.

“So the bereaved will have to accept this and content themselves with the knowledge that I’ve served long years in jail for my crimes.

“If the bereaved don’t have the capacity to do what’s necessary to cope with their loss and any hatred for me, then their inadequacy isn’t going to compel me to shed tear for tear or go scream for scream with them.

“Because they can’t climb out of the pit of the past, it doesn’t mean I’m not going to do everything I can to put the past behind me and to find all the happiness I can.”

Haigh says his victims had only themselves to blame.

“I own that I killed people but I won’t be a scapegoat for poor genes, parenting, social support, peer relations or education that led to my victims being what they were and choosing as they did,” he writes.

Bereaved friends and relatives say the unpublished manuscript shows Haigh should never be released.

It describes how he considered killing his own parents.

Haigh concedes that people would recoil if they knew his history.

“I could be as welcome as a wolf among sheep in society, where the choices of people who could think themselves my betters can be seen in the state of the world,” he writes.

WHAT THE MONSTER WROTE ABOUT HIS VICTIMS

1. EVELYN ABRAHAMS, 58
Shot dead as Haigh robbed a Tattslotto agency in September 1978.

“The woman was confronted by a man wielding a sawn-off double-barrel shotgun, not a suitor with roses and chocolates”.

2. BRUNO CINGOLANI, 45
Father of two gunned down in his South Caulfield pizza shop in December 1978.

“The man was confronted by a person wielding a sawnoff single-barrel shotgun, not a friend bearing champagne with which to toast him. In both cases, they acted beyond the scope of instruction”.

3. WAYNE KEITH SMITH, 27
Haigh associate shot dead as he lay in bed in St Kilda Rd flat in June 1979.

“I also went to my victim’s funeral and before the service we stopped at the flower shop to get something appropriate. I went in the same vehicle as the victim’s pregnant girlfriend, sister, brother-in-law and friend”.

4. SHERYLE GARDNER, 31
Blasted to death as she sat in a car at Ripponlea in July 1979.

“I made the woman think she wasn’t going to be shot. I was really only talking to her in order to give my co-offender enough time to take our car about a suburban block away”.

5. DANNY MITCHELL, 9
Gardner’s distraught son who died moments after witnessing the death of his mother.

“It made no sense for us to kill the woman so she couldn’t get us arrested and then leave the kid alive so we could be arrested for his mother’s murder”.

6. LISA MAUDE BREARLEY, 19
Former Haigh girlfriend stabbed 157 times after being lured to Olinda in August 1979.

“I experienced her as a kind-hearted and nice enough lass. Amazingly, it seems I stabbed her 157 times”.

7. DONALD HATHERLEY, 36
Sex offender who Haigh helped hang in Pentridge Prison in 1991.

“People can frown on my involvement with death again whilst in jail, but I distinguish the hanging from the other six”.

    • The outrage over this must reach the highest levels Steve. Fair dinkum what are we becoming in this country. It was only yesterday these criminals had a bloody survey on living conditions etc. Mind you they reckon they have plenty to whinge about.

      DO NOT commit crimes, get a job and live the life you want…

      Whilst my kids struggle thru uni and school these scumbags get free education (that seems to jump queues) books, resources, and, as we have learned, computers, typewriters, research materials, the list goes on.

      It would be cheaper to go to jail and get a free law (replace with most courses) degree the way it looks at the moment.

    The above quotes and what I read in the ‘Herald Sun’ today makes me ask why this prisoner is getting any media coverage? There is no semblence of remorse or regret, rather the relating of contemplation of further proposed homicides of his adoptive parents at one time
    . He speaks of bad genes, his would seem to be the most evil. A narcissist and a psycopath who appears to be skiting about his crimes. Released, this 2 legged monster would still permanently remove anyone/anything in his way – he believes in his omnipotence as judge, jury and executioner. He must never be released. 7 lives taken, just because he decided they needed to be taken, accounts for an awful lot of people affected, including the police who put him where he is and where he should die.

    • Paul Stephen Haigh is a psychopath and does not have tghe capacity to be sorry for his crimes. If he were able he would still be killing. He completely lacks empathy. There is no use putting this guy back on the street, he will just kill again. No amount of prison counseling will cure him, he is incurable. He even killed while in prison, there is no way he would even be left with other prisoners without supervision. his urge to kill rules his life. He says he was just doing his job of robbing banks and cleaning up the mess he made because too many people knew what he had done. This is pure fiction, certainly there is an element of truth but the fact is he needlessly killed the original victims in the performance of robbery. He could have just robbed and left but Haigh needed to kill them . He needed his fix. He finds excuses, they moved or they did not obey directions. It would not have mattered what they did, they were dead the moment Paul Stephen Haigh came into their lives. To satisfy his need to kill he had to invent new victims from within his core group and his acquaintances. ‘They knew too much’, the truth is they knew what Paul Stephen Haigh wanted them to know, they were already being set up as his next kills.

      • To Antony Pincombe you are right, Paul Steven Haigh should never -ever – be released from prison. He always was a danger in the community and will always be a high risk criminal murderer and danger if he was to ever be realeased, and to be Supervised on the outside would be no guarantee that he would not reoffend and find another victim.The risk would be to high. Just like Adrian Earnest Edwards/ Bayley and Steven James Hunter who were years ago in Pentridge together and just recently committed their worst murderous acts to date, they were both trusted as low risk Model Prisoners and granted Parole, several times. But they were really just time bombs, and their damage done has now gone on into history. Lessons need to be leant from these mistakes ever happening again, by theses ruthless cunning classified then Model Prisoners. Having now seen the damage done by other dangerous Sociopath Criminal like Paul Haigh and the likes of Paul Denyer and Peter Dupas – These type of perpetrators have forever forfeit their rights to freedom from Prison. And only a fool would think otherwise. This should be out of the hands of a Parole Boards decision to make continual mistakes and wrong judgmental outcomes of recidivist re- offending criminals modus operandi patterns of predicted behaviour.. He may be a Model Prisoner, but when he was in ”J”.Division Pentridge in 1989, so also was his mates Raymond Mr Stinky Edmonds, and Juilian Knight and who are or were also Model Prisoners, who appeared to be well behaved. They are all unknown quantities when pushed in to a corner and none of them should ever be released in the preservation of Public Safety. He is from the same mould as Peter Norris Dupas, and should rot in Prison. Lets us all hope the New Victorian Adult Parole Board and their Judges will think the same as the Community!
        The Parole Board has so much to learn from the disastrous outcomes of granting Parole to Adrian Earnest Bayley and Steven James Hunter and Peter Dupas. Their criminal rights created so many more unnecessary victims because of their non risk assessment looking into high profile dangerous recidivist Prisoners, due for release, because of a Judges lenient sentencing on Bayley , Hunter and Dupas!………….Let us all hope that Haigh, Knight or Denyer never get released!…………………………………………………

  8. I AM A EX PRISON OFFICER STEVEN DENNIS , I WORKED IN HELL ,H DIVISION , B DIVISION, A DIVISION AND J DIVISION , H.M PENTRIDGE PRISON IN THE 1990,S, AND ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS 20 YEARS AGO I GUARDED AND LOCKED UP ON A DAILY BASIS, QUITE A FEW OF THESE LOW LIFE MAGGOT SCUM BAG DEVILS, LIKE PAUL HAIGH, JULIAN KNIGHT, STEVEN HUNTER, CLIVE AND ANTHONY STONE, GREGORY BRAZEL, CRAIG AND RODNEY MINOGUE,RUSSELL STREET BOMBERS, VICTOR PIERCE AND PETER MCEVOY, WALSH STREET KILLERS, RODNEY COLLINS, KEITH AND NOEL FAURE,UNDERWORLD HITMEN, CHRISTOPHER BINSE AND MR STINKY RAYMOND EDMONDS AND PETER DUPAS,RAPISTS AND LATER SERIAL MURDERERS, AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON AND ON,AND ON. ALL OF THE ABOVE WERE THE UNTOUCHABLES TOP HEAVY CRIMS IN PENTRIDGE BACK THEN CONTROLLING EVERYTING FROM DRUGS IN AND OUT OF PRISON TO ALL UNDERWORLD MATTERS, AND EVEN MANIPULATION AND CORRUPTION OF SOME PRISON OFFICERS, MOST HAVE GONE ON TO BIGGER AND BETTER NOTORIOUS CRIMES WHEN THERE SENTENCES WERE REDUCED AND THEY WERE LET OUT ON PAROLE, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND EARLY RELEASE BY THE PAROLE BOARD. THEN BACK IN GAOL, AND OUT AGAIN, DOESN,T THIS SOUND FAMILAR! … ..WHILE SOME BECAME VICTIOUS LITIGANTS AND JAIL HOUSE LAWYERS AND CONTINUED TO BE MOVERS AND SHAKERS IN THE PRISON SYSTEM, EVEN THOUGH BACK THEN THEY COULD BE GIVEN A 25 YEAR SENTENCE FOR RAPE AND LIFE AND NEVER BE REALEASED OR GOVERNORS PLEASURE, SO IN TWENTY YEARS NOTHING HAS CHANGED, AS THE RECENT VIOLENT RAPES AND MURDERS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE BY STEVEN JAMES HUNTER AND ADRIAN EARNEST BAYLEY AND RODNEY COLLINS AND KEITH FAURE ,UNDERWORLD GANGLANG HITMEN ARE ALL EVIDENCE OF THE WEAK AND FLAWED CRIMINAL IN- JUSTICE AND PRISON SYSTEM THAT AUSTRALIA IS NOT TOUGH ENOUGH WITH ITS TOUGH NUT CRIMINALS.
    IT IS MY OPINION AS AN EX PENTRIDGE PRISON OFFICER, THAT PENTRIDGE SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN CLOSED AND DECOMMISSIONED IN 1997, AND THAT IT SHOULD HAVE INSTEAD HAD ITS SECURITY INCREASED TO A SUPERMAX PRISON, NOT LIKE THE FIVE STAR PRISONS BEING BUILT TODAY. WHERE THE WORST CRIMINALS DO THERE TIME HARD IN OLD DICKINSEN VICTORIAN PRISON CONDITIONS WHERE THEY THEN ROT IN HELL, H DIVISION, AND THROW AWAY THE KEY, NEVER TO BE RELEASED AGAIN, BETTER THAN THE DEATH PENALTY , ON THE CROSS, BREAKING ROCKS FROM BIGS INTO LITTLES, AND THE TRIANGLE AND CAT O NINE TAILS AND CORPORAL PUNISHMENT REINTRODUCED, AND THE PAROLED BOARD RUN BY VICTIMS OF CRIME, WHO CAN ALSO HAVE THE POWER TO REVIEW AND INCREASE A PRISONERS SENTENCE, FOR BAD BEHAVIOR, AND THE APPEALS SYSTEM ABOLLISHED AND ALL PRISON SENTENCES CAN BE APPEALLED ON BY THE VICTIMS OF CRIME, AND CAN HAVE THE POWER TO INCREASE A SENTENCE IF THEY FIND THE SENTENCING JUDGE WAS TO SOFT ON HIS SENTENCE HANDED OUT IN THE COURTS. NO MORE MISCARRIGE OF JUSTICE TO THE VICTIMS. BUT BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT THAT JUSTICE WILL BE CARRIED OUT ON THESE WORST CRIMINAL OFFENDERS. I REST MY CASE AND HOPE THAT IN THE FUTURE, THE ONLY VICTIMS OF CRIME WILL BE THE HARDENED CRIMS. I WILL FINISH BY SAYING A PRAYER TO THE MEAGHER AND MCKEON FAMILIES, I HOPE JILL AND TOM GETS ETERNAL REVENGE ON ADRIAN EARNEST BAYLEY AND HIS MATE STEVEN JAMES HUNTER, AND THAT THE PRISON SYSTEM ONE DAY MAKES THEM THE VICTIM OF CRIME………ITS TIME FOR CHANGE IN THE VICTORIAN CRIMINAL IN-JUSTICE SYSTEM.
    NO MORE DO-GOODERS, NO MORE CIVIL LIBITARIANS, NO MORE PAROLE….IN THE LEGAL SYSTEM OF IN-JUSTICE….!.

  9. Restore and rebuild the existing un-used old bluestone Victorian pentonville three surviving prison wings of B division, A division, J division, and the still strong H division maximum high security prison management and punishment block, labour yards. All these building are still the same as the day the were last used in 1997, and only need a good clean up and restoration and a security up- grade and a new high security fence built around them again. have a look on youtube, still ideal for a punishment prison for the worst offenders and could even still be used as short term police lock- up cells. And a deterrent to new younger offenders, to give them a taste of real hard prison conditions in cold Victorian cells and cell blocks and communal showers and toilet blocks, no modern five star self contained showers and heated cells here.
    also it shouldn’t impact on the new pentridge villiage housing estate and cafes, shops and multi story town houses and restaurants, as the new prison security would keep it safe, with a new escape proof high security wall and patrolling security 24,7 hours per day and night.
    And the scumbag prisoners would get to smell the nice fresh coffee and fresh meals from the cafes and restaurants, and can reflect on what it is like to have violently taken the lives from their victims and families and lose and forfeit their sense of freedom forever, from the free world living next door to them on the other side of the security fence. And give back a real sense of justice served , back to al the victims of crime. It would be the gem of the governments new get tough on crime, department of justice, prisons Victoria,. it would also create lots of new jobs for the growing number of people who have lost their jobs. more prison officers, more police and protective services and security officers to run the new H.M.Pentridge prison, high security unit.
    Victorian tax payers money well spent on such a change for the incarceration and out of mind and out sight treatment of Victoria,s worst recidivist prisoners. Bring it on politicians and legal system, asap.
