Suprise suprise, but now at least it is fully legal to name this asshole (who is accused of being a vicious killer of a family)
A SUPPRESSION order has been lifted on the name of the man accused of a triple murder in Kapunda, north of Adelaide, last year.
Jason Alexander Downie appeared in Elizabeth Magistrates Court today charged with the murder of Andrew and Rose Rowe and their 16-year-old daughter Chantelle, who were killed in their home in November.
As the 18-year-old appeared by video link a relative of the victims called him a “smug bastard”.
It was his second court appearance after being charged last year and he was not required to enter pleas.
The court was told the first forensic material would be available by the end of March.
Journalists successfully applied for a suppression order on Downie’s name to be lifted.
The order had been applied to protect the integrity of the police investigation.
