Jamie Gao murder: Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara sentenced to life in prison

Jamie Gao murder: Rogerson and McNamara should be jailed for life, prosecutor says

The notorious corrupt former detective Roger Rogerson and his co-accused Glen McNamara should be jailed for life for the murder of drug dealer Jamie Gao, a Sydney court has been told.

Rogerson and McNamara are facing a sentencing hearing today, after being found guilty of murdering Sydney man Mr Gao during a drug deal at a Padstow storage facility on May 20, 2014.

Rogerson, 75, and McNamara, 57, pleaded not guilty to murdering Mr Gao and dumping his body in waters off Cronulla the next day.

New South Wales Crown prosecutor Christopher Maxwell QC told the hearing in the NSW Supreme Court, life sentences have been applied in the past for contract killings.

“They together executed a young drug dealer for their financial gain. The contract killing is a category for which a life sentence can be given and has been given by this court over the years,” he said.

“There is no distinction between killing for payment … or killing for the purpose of financial gain, which is what this was about.

“This was a killing to enable both offenders to obtain the drug … colloquially known as ice … a drug that results in much crime itself.

“The attitude that both accused had towards the deceased after the murder amounted to a completely cold, calculated, lack of feeling, which was all about making him disappear.”

Mr Maxwell said the pair had used their “experience and training for the complete antithesis of what was intended”.

“There is nothing to suggest they would..not be a danger to society.”

Mr Maxwell told the judge the offence was made even more serious because of their intention to “obtain and distribute a drug that is a scourge of our society”.

The crown said the both men were part of a joint criminal enterprise and a great deal of thought was put into it.

“There is nothing ludicrously incompetent about this,” he said.

“There’s a boldness in Mr Rogerson’s attitude.”

He told the judge they planned to make sure Mr Gao’s body would disappear.

“They did everything to make that happen.”

Differing accounts of Gao’s death heard during trial

During the trial, both men denied pulling the trigger and instead pointed the blame at each other.

McNamara’s defence told the trial it was Rogerson who shot and killed Mr Gao before threatening McNamara and his family, forcing him to help dispose of the body.

Rogerson claimed the 20-year-old was killed during a struggle with McNamara and the student was dead on the floor when he entered the shed.

The trial was told by prosecutors both had given “far-fetched and unbelievable” versions of what happened.

Mr Gao told his cousin Justin Gao he was going to be involved in a massive drug deal with a man called ‘Glen’ that was going to make him rich.

He held a number of meetings with McNamara in the months before his death — McNamara claimed these meetings were for a book he was writing about Asian crime gangs.

This explanation was dismissed by prosecutors, who said McNamara and Rogerson were preparing for the killing.

Prosecutors told the court the crown did not have to prove which of the defendants killed Mr Gao, just that there was an agreement to kill or seriously injure the victim.

It took the jury just under a week to reach the verdicts.

Justice Geoffrey Bellew thanked them for their service and excused them from ever serving again, unless they wished to do so.

Former police detectives Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara have been found guilty of murdering Sydney man Jamie Gao during a drug deal.


Jamie Gao murder trial: Jurors in case of Roger Rogerson, Glen McNamara begin deliberations

UPDATE 2pm 02/06/16

Three men walk into a shed. Only two men come out alive. They were former detectives Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara.

In his closing address to a NSW Supreme Court jury, Crown Prosecutor Christopher Maxwell QC argued there were 29 reasons why the pair should be found guilty of the murder of Jamie Gao and stealing the drugs he had brought to a meeting.

“These are the main or important circumstances that the Crown relies upon,” Mr Maxwell said before starting his list below.

1. Glen McNamara had 27 meetings with the deceased Jamie Gao in the lead up to his death on May 20, 2014.

2. Mr McNamara claims the meetings were for research on his next true crime book on Asian gangs and drugs in Sydney. The Crown says his lack of notes taken prove this is not the case.

3. Roger Rogerson obtained six keys to the shed where Mr Gao was killed from a friend in early March and only returned five keys.

4. The arrival of two Asian men in Australia – who the Crown allege were there to facilitate the drug deal – and their presence on Arab Road where Mr Gao gets into a car with Mr McNamara.

5. Mr Rogerson visits Rent a Space – the storage facility where Mr Gao is killed –  on April 2 and again with Mr McNamara on April 4.

6. Google searches found on Mr McNamara’s computer of the same calibre firearm that would later be used to shoot and kill Mr Gao.

7. The frequency of telephone calls between Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara between January and May 2014, particularly around the times when Mr McNamara meets with Mr Gao.

8. The purchase of BV67PX – a white Ford Falcon station wagon that the Crown alleges was acquired by Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara on April 27. This was later used to transport the body of the deceased.

9. The statements Jamie Gao made to his friends and associates – he once told his cousin Justin Gao that he was going to take part in an ice deal and “he said it was going to be massive”.

10. Mr McNamara removes his boat from storage the day before Mr Gao’s death and returns it the day after. The boat was used to dispose of Mr Gao’s body at sea.

11. Mr Rogerson goes to Rent a Space the day before the killing and removes two chairs from unit 803. He returns them two days later.

12. Mr McNamara parks his blue Ford Falcon on the street on May 19.

13. The way Mr McNamara was dressed on May 20 – he was wearing a dark hooded jacket and sunglasses.

14. Mr McNamara had the gate code and keys to unit 803 on May 20.

15. The way in which Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara parked their respective cars on Arab Road minutes before Mr Gao was due to arrive.

16. The way Mr McNamara parked the white station wagon BV67PX outside unit 803 and shielded  Mr Gao so that he would not been seen on CCTV as he entered the shed.

17. Mr Rogerson enters the storage shed three minutes and 19 seconds after Mr McNamara and Mr Gao enter.

18. Mr McNamara brings a silver Ocean & Earth surfboard bag which is used to place the deceased’s body inside.

19. Mr Rogerson brings ropes and tarpaulin to the storage shed on the day of the killing.

20. Mr McNamara’s garage was used to transfer the deceased into a boat.

21. Mr Rogerson was present at Kennard’s Hire and assisted in hiring a chain block to move Mr Gao’s body.

22. Mr Rogerson’s actions inside Mr McNamara’s Cronulla apartment after Mr Gao is killed. Mr McNamara’s daughter Jessica claims that she saw Mr Rogerson tapping a dark coloured object in his pockets.

23. The gunshot residue on Mr Rogerson’s hat and from the pockets of his black tracksuit pants.

24. The disposal of the body of Mr Gao at sea on May 21. It was found floating off the shores of Cronulla by fishermen on May 26.

25. Mr McNamara disposes of a bag of clothing on May 21.

26. Two pillowcases, a jug and a measuring spoon were bought from Kmart on May 22 – these items are used to repackage the three kilograms of ice.

27. The involvement of a man named Adam Borg and the attempts made to get the untraceable car BV67PX towed after it is used to transport the deceased’s body.

28. A meeting at Sydney Airport on May 28 between Mr McNamara and Mr Rogerson.

29. After the police tow away the car BV67PX with the drugs inside, Mr McNarama uses a payphone to call Karl Bonnette, a man who the Crown argues helped the two accused to purchase the car.

Mr Maxwell ended his closing address by looking at the jury and saying: “It will be your solemn obligation to return a verdict of guilty in relation to both counts against both accused.”

A jury has started to consider verdicts in the trial of former police officers Glen McNamara and Roger Rogerson, over the shooting murder of a young Sydney man during a drug deal.

Jamie Gao, 20, was shot twice inside a storage unit in Sydney’s south-west on May 20, 2014.

Prosecutors said his body was later dumped at sea near Cronullausing McNamara’s boat.

Both men adopted vastly different versions of what happened inside unit 803 at Rent-a-Space Padstow.

McNamara claimed Rogerson got into a heated argument with Mr Gao about drugs.

He said Mr Gao pulled out a knife and simultaneously, Rogerson grabbed a gun from his pocket and fired it.

McNamara said Rogerson then threatened to kill him and his daughters if he did not help move the body.

But Rogerson told the jury Mr Gao was dead on the floor of the unit by the time he entered.

He said he was told Mr Gao had pulled the gun on McNamara and the shooting happened during a struggle.

‘We’re both innocent’: recorded prison phone call

Phone calls McNamara made to his daughters from prison after his arrest gave no indication he was planning to turn on his friend.

“It’s an almost non-existent circumstantial case, this case. There’s no evidence. We’re both completely innocent,” McNamara said in one call.

The crown alleges both men formed an agreement to kill Mr Gao and steal drugs from him.

On the day before the shooting, McNamara took his boat out of storage and Rogerson removed two office chairs from unit 803.

Both were described as acts of preparation for the murder.

McNamara had held 27 meetings with Mr Gao in the months before the shooting.

He said they were all about research for a book he was planning to write about Asian crime gangs.

But prosecutors said there was virtually no evidence he had made any notes of his research and the real purpose of the meetings was to organise a drug deal.

McNamara said he only cooperated with Rogerson after the shooting under duress.

Rogerson has denied making any threats and his barrister told the jury, unlike McNamara, his client made no attempt to hide his appearance on the day of the shooting.


Jamie Gao murder: Jury in Roger Rogerson, Glen McNamara murder trial retires

THE jury in the murder trial of former detectives Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara has retired to consider their verdicts.

Justice Geoffrey Bellew officially sent the Supreme Court jury of seven men and five women out at 12.35pm telling them

“I am directing you to reach unanimous verdicts in respect of each count”.

“If at any stage of your deliberations you would like me to repeat any direction I’ve given you or elaborate…you must ask.

“It is fundamentally important that you understand the directions of law I have given you.”

The jury has been hearing evidence in the trial of Rogerson, 75, and McNamara, 57, since early February.

Both men have pleaded not guilty to murdering 20-year-old Jamie Gao inside a Padstow storage unit on the afternoon of May 20, 2014, and to taking part in the supply of 2.78kg of ice, allegedly brought by the university student to shed 803 of Rent A Space.

While both men have a right to silence, and were under no obligation to give evidence, they chose to take the witness stand and give their accounts over several gruelling days of questioning by their own lawyers, as well as cross examination.

What emerged were two very different stories, told in starkly contrasting manners.

McNamara, his voice often becoming distressed in recounting, says Rogerson shot Gao while “seeing with anger” over the handover of drugs and cash, and then threatened the safety of McNamara and the lives of his daughters if he didn’t co-operate with the disposal of the body.

Rogerson, whose voice remained steady as he gripped the witness box with both hands each day, said that by the time he entered the storage unit Gao was already lying dead on the floor, with his friend McNamara telling him that the young man had “shot himself” during a “real struggle” between the pair for the gun.

“He was going to kill me …(if we don’t leave here soon) this place will be swarming with Chinese assassins,” Rogerson claimed McNamara warned him.

He says he agreed to help out of trust for the man he considered “at that time a very good friend of mine.”

Jamie Gao, 20, was shot dead in a storage shed.

Crown prosecutor Christopher Maxwell QC told the jury — as he did in his opening address in the early days of February — that they do not have to determine which man was the shooter in order to return verdicts of guilty to murder, as they are being tried under a joint criminal enterprise.

Mr Maxwell presented to the jury lists of circumstances he said prosecutors have revealed in the evidence as proof of the Crown case beyond reasonable doubt.

The case against the pair makes heavy use of CCTV. Picture: supplied

For McNamara, they include the more than 20 meetings he had with Gao. in the months before the execution, documented by CCTV footage and text message exchanges, and internet searches on his laptop for the type of firearm that police believe was used to kill the 20-year-old.

The murder weapon has never been found.

McNamara said in his evidence that he was meeting with Gao because the university student was a source for a planned true crime book on drug syndicates in Asian triad gangs, but Mr Maxwell said there has been no evidence of written notes made by the 57-year-old for this book.

Prosecutors have also pointed to Rogerson making a trip to Rent A Space the day before the murder to remove office furniture from the shed that had been leased by his friend Michael Maguire, who has since died from cancer.

McNamara’s barrister Gabriel Wendler told the jury in his closing address this week that, if

Rogerson had not been responsible for the shooting then he must be “the unluckiest guy in the world”, pointing to the traces of gunshot residue that were found on the clothes the 75-year-old was wearing on the day, as well as a fingerprint of his that was detected on the receipt for the white Ford Falcon at the centre of the murder.

“Can you seriously see Glen McNamara executing Mr Gao, a man the same age as one of his daughters?” Mr Wendler asked the jury.

“A person with whom he had built up a relationship with?”

Rogerson’s counsel George Thomas in turn rubbished the suggestion his client acted in a “joint criminal enterprise” with McNamara, drawing on the window of three minutes and 19 seconds when his client was not inside shed 803.

Mr Thomas also suggested to the jury that if there had been a plan all along to kill the university student, then both Rogerson and McNamara would have waited inside to “ambush” Gao.

Mr Thomas said “Glen McNamara intended to kill Jamie Gao”.

“That was why the surfboard bag [in which Gao’s body was removed from the shed] was there [in McNamara’s car]. It was how the body was to be taken out,” Mr Thomas said.

He said that, if there had been a plan to kill Gao all along on Rogerson’s part, he would have been in the shed at the same time as the other two, “not arrive later.”

“What is the point of that?” Mr Thomas asked the jury.

“[If that was the plan] you would have Rogerson [already] in there to do the killing, you would have the surfboard bag ready … have the site properly prepared if there is a planned execution.”

Jamie Gao murder trial: Rogerson and McNamara gave ‘unbelievable’ versions of events, court hears

Updated 18 May 2016, 2:48pm

Two former police officers charged with the murder of Sydney student Jamie Gao have given “far-fetched and unbelievable” versions of what happened, prosecutors say.

In his closing address at the murder trial of Glen McNamara and Roger Rogerson, prosecutor Christopher Maxwell QC told the jury both men were part of an agreement to kill Mr Gao and steal almost three kilograms of the drug ice.

The court heard the pair used a car that could not be traced to transport Mr Gao from the Padstow storage unit where he was shot on May 20, 2014.

Rogerson said he was not involved in acquiring the white Ford Falcon station wagon, but his fingerprint was found on the receipt for its purchase.

Mr Maxwell said McNamara’s boat was taken out of storage the day before the shooting, “to make Jamie Gao disappear”.

The court heard it was used to dump the body at sea the day after the 20-year-old was killed, and the boat was then returned to storage.

McNamara said Rogerson shot and killed Mr Gao before threatening him and his family.

Courts hears of meetings in months before alleged murder

Rogerson said he found Mr Gao already dead and was told he had pulled a gun on McNamara, who tried to defend himself.

“Jamie Gao shot himself twice in a struggle?” Mr Maxwell asked.

“It never happened like that,” Mr Maxwell added.

“It is far-fetched and unbelievable.”

Mr Gao had told his cousin Justin Gao he was going to be involved in a massive drug deal with a man called ‘Glen’ that was going to make him rich.

He held a number of meetings with McNamara in the months before his death and the men were also in contact by text message.

Mr Maxwell said Rogerson knew all about it, because he was in regular phone contact with McNamara, including around the time of a number of the meetings with Mr Gao.

The jury was told McNamara tried to shield Mr Gao from CCTV cameras at the Padstow storage complex.

During his evidence, McNamara said he was meeting Mr Gao as a source for a book he was writing about Asian crime gangs but learnt that Mr Gao was being followed by triads.

Mr Maxwell dismissed this, saying McNamara and Rogerson did things in preparation for the killing.

“Both of them knew what was to happen after Jamie Gao entered unit 803 at 1:46pm on the 20th of May,” he said.

“It’s clear one of the accused shot Jamie Gao.

“To convict both accused, you don’t have to be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt, who was the shooter.”

The prosecutor’s closing address continues.

Barrister Charles Waterstreet probed for contempt of court over social media posts in McNamara and Rogerson murder trial

High-profile criminal barrister Charles Waterstreet may face contempt of court charges for alleged social media posts which had the potential to prejudice the trial of his client Glen McNamara and co-accused Roger Rogerson.

On Thursday, Justice Geoffrey Bellew formally vacated the trial of Mr McNamara and Mr Rogerson for the murder of university student Jamie Gao during a botched drug deal.

The trial was scheduled to go ahead on Monday, but will not proceed until early next year.

Justice Bellew ordered the registrar of the Common Law Division of the Supreme Court to investigate Mr Waterstreet for contempt of court.

On Tuesday, as pre-trial hearings were under way, Justice Bellew was told of a post on an Instagram account in Mr Waterstreet’s name, being charleswaterstreet.

The post contained a picture of Mr Waterstreet and another man and was taken in the vicinity of the Darlinghurst Supreme Court.

It had a caption, the contents of which Justice Bellew has suppressed.

Mr Waterstreet told Justice Bellew he did not post the picture and caption.

The court also heard a Twitter account in Mr Waterstreet’s name at @ccwaterstreet posted a link to the Instagram post.

Justice Bellew said he had “no practical alternative” to vacate the trial despite the considerable expense to the taxpayer.

He said it was no fault of the court, the “criminal justice system”, the Crown, Mr Rogerson’s solicitor and barrister or Mr McNamara’s solicitor and said each had worked diligently to ensure the trial proceeded efficiently.

“To say the vacation of the trial is unfortunate would be a gross understatement,” he said.

But he said Mr McNamara, through no fault of his own, was suddenly left without a barrister on Wednesday morning, just days from the opening date, and to proceed would potentially rob him of a fair trial.

Former Liberal NSW Attorney-General Greg Smith, SC, appeared in court, saying Mr McNamara wanted to retain him and Mr Waterstreet’s junior counsel Peter Lange. However, he would not be able to take on the case until next year.

Mr Rogerson’s barrister, George Thomas, argued strongly for the trial to be put back for only two weeks, arguing a competent and experienced barrister who is available to take on the case could get across the brief in that time.

He also accused Mr McNamara of instructing Mr Waterstreet to act in a way that caused the case to go off the rails.

However, Justice Bellew dismissed any suggestion Mr McNamara was behind Mr Waterstreet’s alleged actions.

He also said any barrister taking over the case would need much more than two weeks to get across the volumes of material to be tendered during the trial.

Mr Smith said he was hoping the Legal Aid Commission would approve his retainer.

Mr Thomas said that, as Mr McNamara’s defence was funded by Legal Aid, he did not have the luxury of choosing his own barrister and should take whoever was available.

Both Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara have pleaded not guilty to the murder of Mr Gao in a storage unit in Padstow last year.

Following the revelation of the social media posts, Mr Waterstreet was given time to get legal advice. He consulted noted appeal barrister Tim Game, SC.

On Wednesday, Mr Waterstreet sought the court’s leave to withdraw from the case.

Mr Game, appearing for Mr Waterstreet, told the court he had advised his client to step down, although this did not constitute an admission of wrongdoing.

Crown Prosecutor Chris Maxwell, QC, and Mr Game agreed Mr Waterstreet should be referred to the registrar for investigation.

In referring Mr Waterstreet, Justice Bellew ordered the registrar to seek and adhere to the “advice of the Crown Solicitor as to whether proceedings for contempt should be taken against Mr Waterstreet”.

He also ordered the registrar to inform the Attorney-General, Gabrielle Upton.

Former detectives Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara will face a new trial over the murder of Sydney student Jamie Gao on August 18, following the discharge of the jury in their first trial.

Justice Geoff Bellew told the NSW Supreme Court that the new trial date for the pair had been confirmed, lifting a non-publication order made on Tuesday.

Mr Rogerson, 74, and Mr McNamara, 56, are accused of being part of a “joint criminal enterprise” to murder Mr Gao, 20, in a southern Sydney storage unit on May 20 last year.

It is alleged that they stole 2.78 kilograms of the drug ice from him and then dumped his body off the coast of Cronulla. It was found six days later.

Half way through the trial’s second day on Tuesday, Justice Bellew discharged the 15-member jury for legal reasons which cannot be disclosed.

Both accused have pleaded not guilty to murder and drug supply.

Counsel for Mr McNamara, Charles Waterstreet told the jury on Tuesday that Mr Rogerson had been solely responsible for the murder.

He said the 74-year-old had shot Mr Gao twice in the chest and then threatened to kill Mr McNamara and his family if he did not help him to cover up the crime.

No evidence was presented to support these claims before the jury was discharged.

Counsel for Mr Rogerson, George Thomas, did not have the opportunity to address the jury before members were discharged.

On Tuesday Justice Bellew said the NSW sheriff had confirmed that a court was available on August 18 to begin a new trial, and he formally set down that date.


TWO former detectives charged with murdering a Sydney student will go on trial before a jury today. Glen McNamara and Roger Rogerson face charges of murdering 20-year-old UTS student Jamie Gao in May last year. They are also accused of drug supply. Their trial at the NSW Supreme Court at Darlinghurst is expected to get underway later this morning. Police have alleged the pair lured Gao to a storage unit in Sydney’s southwest, with Mr Gao attending the meeting carrying almost three kilograms of the drug ice, or crystal methamphetamine.

Police have alleged the trio were spotted on CCTV entering the storage unit. Ten minutes later, cameras allegedly captured McNamara and Rogerson leaving, dragging a surfboard bag. Mr Gao’s bound body was found floating in waters off Sydney six days later. Both McNamara and Rogerson deny the charges and entered not guilty pleas at a previous hearing. In January they waived their right to a committal hearing in order to get to trial as soon as possible.

  1. An interesting case the timeline of the trio entering and then leaving after 10 minutes seems very quick and to not be aware of their surroundings such as cameras seems so careless. The outcome will be very interesting. Were they under the influence when committing this crime ? Which caused their sense of judgement and surroundings to be impaired.

  2. A young man that seemed to have alot going for him chose to dabble in a very risky activity dealing with a couple of ex cons with a very sordid criminal history dating wayback Rogerson a bloke with a very nasty side most likely will spend his golden years behind bars.

  3. Very careless for a supposed seasoned and for a time in the 1980’s a notoriously experienced major crime detective, that got good results busting dangerous criminals in NSW. But he strayed to the wild side and rich pickings of dealing corruptly with notorious criminals. It does seem these former coppers D’s thought they were still from the wild west days when coppers were god at the end of the barrel of a gun, and things were swiftly sorted and taken care off by murder inc!

    But in their retirement they have failed to observe that the modern policing eyes of CCTV are watching everything more than ever before, nowadays, and especially the low life drug dealers.
    Probably former Detective Sergeant Roger the Dodger Rogerson thought he could still be the green light deputy sheriff marshal dodger on this alleged murder and the disposal of the body wrapped in plastic and dumped at sea, with the help of his trusted mate!…

    Roger Rogerson claims he was not always a bent corrupt cop, and did do some good old fashioned old school hard knocks police detective work police busts of crims, in his long tarnished career as the notorious enforcer feared good cop – bad cop.
    But he has out his out smarted his own intelligence and feared legend status by thinking he would get away with this bungled alleged murder of a known drug ice dealer by killing him and throwing him out to sea in a plastic makeshift body bag, thinking no one was watching.

    And also the bizarre unbelievable and stupidity of all this, is the other former experienced King Cross police detective Glen McNamara and anti-corruption NSW Police whistleblower, that ironically helped Roger Rogerson carry away the body, or even possibly help kill the ice drug trafficker, or whatever foul play caused Jamie Gao’s demise which occurred at the crime scene in the storage unit, where the victim entered alive and come out dead in a surf board bag dragged out in the company of these two high profile former NSW coppers. How they thought they could get away with this beggars belief on the grounds of stupidity ? Dumb and Dumber!…
    I guess the Dodger at age 74, still thought he was the untouchable green light Detective Sergeant Dodger?…

    This not the first time The Dodger has killed a criminal either. Although he was never convicted for the murder, he was suspected of the shooting on duty of the low life Sydney heroin dealer Warren Lanfranchi in 1981. He was named out on this one by Lanfranchi outspoken prostitute girlfriend Sally-Anne Huckstepp , who spoke out against him over corruption dealings in NSW Police and between Detective Rogerson and Notorious Sydney Standover man Neddy Smith. Which was to lead to The Dodger being charged with committing the perversion of justice, which ended his colourful police career and forced him to hand over his police badge and revolver for a prisoners uniform where he did a stretch in a NSW Jail and survived.
    But Sally-Anne Huckstepp wasn’t to survive and was to be murdered, allegedly cold-bloodedly drowned by Neddy Smith in a Sydney lake in Centennial Park on the orders of Rogerson. And murder of Sally-Anne Huckstepp has never fully been solved? There is a song made in tribute to Sally-Anne Huckstepp.
    Called – Sally-Anne by Spy Vs Spy in

    Another colourful crime alleged at Roger the Dodger was arranging for Melbourne Criminal Hitman – Christopher Dale “Rentakill” Flannery to shoot and murder Honest investigating NSW Police Detective Michael Drury. But Flannery failed in killing him, and his testimony and evidence of the attempted murder, was pointed at Detective Sergeant Roger Rogerson. But the Dodger, dodged away from a conspiracy to murder charge. And later on Christopher Dale Flannery was to vanish without trace. Believed shutdown and murdered by notorious Sydney Crime bosses Lennie McPherson and George Freeman. His body has never been found!. Roger Rogerson says he had nothing to do with it?…

    In his retirement after getting out of jail, Roger Rogerson, left his notorious background behind him and later teamed up with Melbourne Headhunter and drug dealer standover man – Pentridge Prisons infamous Mark Brandon “Chopper” Read, who had himself got out of jail on a attempted murder stretch in Tasmania’s Risden Pink Palace Prison and teamed up with the wild boy former Victorian Football League Geelong player in the 1980’s – I’m a Individual – Mark “Jacko” Jackson. They all did the paid public speaking circuits around Australia of speaking about themselves, to packed crowds in the 1990’s and 2000’s. They called themselves the “Wild Colonial Psycho’s”.
    Here is the trio in action. And some films below of relevance to the Dodgers inner sanctum of bent green light cops and notorious crims he was mixed up with, in one form or another?…

  4. “ROGERSON TRIAL ABORTED”
    THE jury in the murder trial of former NSW cops Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara has been discharged, a day after opening addresses began.
    Justice Geoffrey Bellew told the 15 men and women this was due to “a legal issue which has arisen”.
    The Crown alleges the pair killed Jamie Gao at a storage shed in Padstow, in Sydney’s south west, on May 20.
    Roger Rogerson,74, and Glen McNamara,56, have pleaded not guilty.
    The trial will continue before a new jury.

  5. Cheers Robbo, I have written the many links, after searching them out, so as to make it quick and easy for other Aussie Criminal readers to quickly find the subject related past news articles and videos, to each of your excellent articles. Hopefully this should not cause any copyright issues, with the parties concerned. And also most important it saves lots of time, trying to search the internet to find these interesting doco’s or any related subject information on notorious criminals and other non criminal subjects, as I have consistently over time posted for entertainment purposes in the Chill out Lounge. I like to think of it as The Aussie Criminal communities own archive or criminal records intelligence unit. For the perusal and collation and one stop quick referencing on the worst criminals the world over. No need for Freedom of Information and legal censorship in here. And I for those that, don’t like what is posted on this outstanding criminal information site, well they can simply hit the x button and leave the AC Site, as
    the banner clearly states, “AUSSIE CRIMINALS AND CROOKS DO NOT ENTER”.
    Keep up the excellent job on your site Robbo, its simply the best.
    I have tried to start my own site on wordpress, on the history of Australian Prisons, I have called my site – 1 Champ Street Coburg – Which was the address of H.M.Pentridge Prison.
    I have uploaded lots of pictures of Pentridge Prison history. But unfortunately as I am only a beginner to social media and written my own internet page, I have experienced many difficulties trying to get it up and running on wordpress, so I thought stuff it, I will just post prison related issues past and modern day on Aussie Criminals, if you don’t mind. I am not trying to take over your amazing site, just sharing things that I dig up, where I can share it with any other interested people perusing criminal or prison subject matter, which people who have never been involved in law enforcement or a prison environment would properly never experience or hear about, outside the newspaper stories. Anyway sorry for waffling on, keep up the great posts. I am surprised more people don’t vote on your Aussie Criminals posts. Cheers – Former Pentridge Prison Officer, Circa 1989.

  6. Cheers – Yes Reagan very strange, everyone seems to just left Aussie Criminals, just got up and disappeared gone walkabout. There are several followers listed , but no one seems to want to comment or talk any more. I thought my detailed posts, had offended many of the older followers. The silence is deafening!… I don’t know why, because Robbo’s site is awesome, so well researched and presented. Every one must be watching boring reality TV Shows like Master Chef and the Block, Farmer wants a wife or something, or watching the footy, buggered if I know, why everyone seems to have just switched off Aussie Criminals is a mystery? Gee I think we might be all getting booed by the angry crowd and hurt to the bone, if you no what I’m saying and lost all respect like a certain high profile indigenous football player. We better go on leave, Ha, Ha. A True Crime Writer can be a very lonely existence!… Perhaps we better get a real life- Ha, Ha. Because there is no ratings writing about true crime!… There is more comments on Youtube about classical ballet. To bad, so sad!..

  7. Ha ha good one F.P.O and how boring channel 9 is and the rest of those channels even foxtels a relentless bore of reality tv, home renos and cooking shows if thats the way TV has turned I will remain on Robbos intelligent, informative site. I have even noticed A current Affair are desperate for a good story theyre now turning towards advertising makeup brands and dodgy landlords. How many of those stories can they repeat its chronic. Maybe sensitive football players should think about their own actions and why the crowd isnt happy before they play the victim. If he cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen. Wether ones black or white. Give me a true crime story over football, home renos & cooking shows anyday. The previous bloggers must be on holidays or just enjoy reading ours. It can only get better.

    1. Cheers Reagan, I think were from a different time and age, like back in the great 80,s or livin in the 70’s. Skyhooks, Shirl, countdown, even rage, and anyway, if I went out on a Saturday night to a modern day nightclub or even the corner suburban pub, in the present, I would feel like a fish out of water, or is that fish in a fish bowl, confused by the surroundings of this modern garbage of the under 30’s or modern generation Y trash music and party hard culture they all love. I would rather sit down by the fire, with a few cans and watch Hey Hey is Saturday and Ozzie Ostrich.
      And football now, be buggered if I agree with this face of racism bullshit. It’s just black fellows being big sooks. Booing and swearing in the crowd is what the atmosphere of being a spectator at a live footy matches is all about. As long as their is no punch up’s or physical violence, then what’s the problem. Its all about booing or cheering the playing footy teams and letting off some steam. nothing personal. This is what spectator sport is all about. Its not being personal, at least not in most cases. Except for when a certain high profile player, goes and sooks and gets a poor young girl arrested for a alleged racist remark. Why couldn’t he have just ignored the comment. Then that would have been the end of it, but no he had to make a big anti racism issue about the ape comment. He needs to toughen up. After all its a game of Aussie rules football, not a Andre Rieu concert.
      And this placard waving anti racism correctness by Sydney Swans fans is the final straw. I would call it a big sooky sook protest. Just playing into Goody Goody’s hands. He need to take teaspoon of quick set cement and harden up!… I can’t believe how many foolish football fans and non football fans, think the sooky indigenous man who says he is the face of racism, and is hurt by all the booing to bone , has all these sooky fools on his side. There all making things worse.
      I read a comment in the paper, it said, quote – ” If I was getting paid $400,000 a year to play AFL football, the crowd can boo me as much as they like”.
      The game of football is a game of pansies, if a bit of booing by the angry crowd easy upsets them!… Sticks and stone can break their bones but names aren’t going to hurt them. Oh, but it okay for the indigenous tribes to wave their imagined spears and do black fellow wars dances to the booing crowd, to infuriate the spectators and ram their culture down everyone’s throats.

  8. So true its all about how you handle situations look at Monkhurst when he played for Collingwood he was called monkey he took it on the chin never made an issue out of it he rolled with the punches. No fans have ever booed any other indigenous players before but Goodes, because hes a mouth. Like you said being paid a big salary suck it up sunshine is what he should do. Ive been called names and theres been times where I could have smashed the prick right in the jaw but no kept it together tommorrows another day I didnt run to mummy. Im sure you have had more than your share of abuse F.P.O in your prison career and youve maybe felt like spitting in the face of the antagonistic prick. Through those steel bars. It does sicken me that other teams are becoming passive sympathisers its this new generation they are not like the players of the 50s, 60s, 70s ,80s & 90s theyre another breed football sucks now and Im done with Richmond. Ive had it. The media need to shut their traps too.

  9. Yeah fully agree some of the fans, the media and the AFL, and its coaches and players, are fuelling the racism fires of footy fans bitterness towards Adam Goodes. And they have gone way to far with all this indigenous clap trap of political correctness towards spectators behaviour at the footy ground. And all this protesting and feeling sorry for and sucking up to Adam Goodes and his aboriginal stirrers waving signs , is dividing people, who are not even racists in the first place. And all to the benefit for the sook behaviour that Adam Goodes shows on the footy field, instead of just sucking it all up. He provokes a angry racist mob. And with all these supports grovelling over the issue, he thrives on the attention. And instead of just taking it all on the chin, accuses us all of being bullies or racial vilification. He should let all the booing towards him by the actions of his own making, run off him like water on a ducks back. His champion dual brownlow medals and Australian of the year accolades , wouldn’t now have been under such scrutiny and by the verbal abuse he gets , if he had chosen to just ignore that ape comment by that young girl. And call her the face of racism and totally humiliating her, by getting her dragged of by the security and police. How often does a spectator or spectators have something derogatory or abusive language to say at any footballer, be the black or white. Its just the nature of the game, decades. And he alone has created this situation and a rod for his own back, also with his corroboree war dances, which is in fact being racist or vilification towards white Australian footy fans. It works both ways. And this is why many people are dishing it out either at or towards his fellow aboriginals and this is why he no longer anymore has the respect as a once great champion footballer. While Jim Stynes, Ted Whitten, Bob Dyer, Lou Richards, Kevin Bartlett, etc will remain immortal legends to the History of VFL – AFL Aussie rules football … Sydney Swans Adam Goodes won’t ever get back his legend pedestal. While he has been awarded the Australian of the year, it won’t change the way many pissed off people now perceive him as just a big sook of a footy player.
    Here are some good respected present and past indigenous aboriginals, It nothing to do with the face of racism, vilification or crowd mob bulling , its just disrespect at him for the way he sooks and at the same time stirs back , by his deliberate vocal preaching of his first Australians ownership of aboriginal values to the general crowds anger at being told what to do, believe and how to behave at the church of Aussie football. I am not a racist, but when I was a Prison Officer at Pentridge the aboriginal inmates certainly abused me very frequently. There were a lot of Aboriginal deaths in custody in police lock up’s and prisons, so their was much hatred at police and prison officers in 1988, but I just ignored there racist derogatory abuse. It works both ways racism or racial vilification!… And many ethnic Australians, especially Sudanese, Lebanese , Middle Eastern and aboriginal criminals can dish the abuse out big time and with violence, as can all white skinned criminals but some, they can’t take it back whatever race they be!

  12. I call these the 29 nails into their coffins on this case. How greedy and stupid they were.
    “These are the main or important circumstances that the Crown relies upon,” Mr Maxwell said before starting his list below.

    1. Glen McNamara had 27 meetings with the deceased Jamie Gao in the lead up to his death on May 20, 2014.

    2. Mr McNamara claims the meetings were for research on his next true crime book on Asian gangs and drugs in Sydney. The Crown says his lack of notes taken prove this is not the case.

    3. Roger Rogerson obtained six keys to the shed where Mr Gao was killed from a friend in early March and only returned five keys.

    4. The arrival of two Asian men in Australia – who the Crown allege were there to facilitate the drug deal – and their presence on Arab Road where Mr Gao gets into a car with Mr McNamara.

    5. Mr Rogerson visits Rent a Space – the storage facility where Mr Gao is killed – on April 2 and again with Mr McNamara on April 4.

    6. Google searches found on Mr McNamara’s computer of the same calibre firearm that would later be used to shoot and kill Mr Gao.

    7. The frequency of telephone calls between Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara between January and May 2014, particularly around the times when Mr McNamara meets with Mr Gao.

    8. The purchase of BV67PX – a white Ford Falcon station wagon that the Crown alleges was acquired by Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara on April 27. This was later used to transport the body of the deceased.

    9. The statements Jamie Gao made to his friends and associates – he once told his cousin Justin Gao that he was going to take part in an ice deal and “he said it was going to be massive”.

    10. Mr McNamara removes his boat from storage the day before Mr Gao’s death and returns it the day after. The boat was used to dispose of Mr Gao’s body at sea.

    11. Mr Rogerson goes to Rent a Space the day before the killing and removes two chairs from unit 803. He returns them two days later.

    12. Mr McNamara parks his blue Ford Falcon on the street on May 19.

    13. The way Mr McNamara was dressed on May 20 – he was wearing a dark hooded jacket and sunglasses.

    14. Mr McNamara had the gate code and keys to unit 803 on May 20.

    15. The way in which Mr Rogerson and Mr McNamara parked their respective cars on Arab Road minutes before Mr Gao was due to arrive.

    16. The way Mr McNamara parked the white station wagon BV67PX outside unit 803 and shielded Mr Gao so that he would not been seen on CCTV as he entered the shed.

    17. Mr Rogerson enters the storage shed three minutes and 19 seconds after Mr McNamara and Mr Gao enter.

    18. Mr McNamara brings a silver Ocean & Earth surfboard bag which is used to place the deceased’s body inside.

    19. Mr Rogerson brings ropes and tarpaulin to the storage shed on the day of the killing.

    20. Mr McNamara’s garage was used to transfer the deceased into a boat.

    21. Mr Rogerson was present at Kennard’s Hire and assisted in hiring a chain block to move Mr Gao’s body.

    22. Mr Rogerson’s actions inside Mr McNamara’s Cronulla apartment after Mr Gao is killed. Mr McNamara’s daughter Jessica claims that she saw Mr Rogerson tapping a dark coloured object in his pockets.

    23. The gunshot residue on Mr Rogerson’s hat and from the pockets of his black tracksuit pants.

    24. The disposal of the body of Mr Gao at sea on May 21. It was found floating off the shores of Cronulla by fishermen on May 26.

    25. Mr McNamara disposes of a bag of clothing on May 21.

    26. Two pillowcases, a jug and a measuring spoon were bought from Kmart on May 22 – these items are used to repackage the three kilograms of ice.

    27. The involvement of a man named Adam Borg and the attempts made to get the untraceable car BV67PX towed after it is used to transport the deceased’s body.

    28. A meeting at Sydney Airport on May 28 between Mr McNamara and Mr Rogerson.

    29. After the police tow away the car BV67PX with the drugs inside, Mr McNarama uses a payphone to call Karl Bonnette, a man who the Crown argues helped the two accused to purchase the car.

  13. Rogerson the Dodger or now Dumb and Dumber Dodger should of stuck with his mate Mark “Jacko” Jackson doing the sell out Wild Colonial Psycho Tours. Even Roger The Dodgers good crim mate Mark “CHOPPER” Read, when he got out of jail in Tasmania knew it was time to retire as a criminal basher and standover and so called hitman from his Pentridge Prison and 70’s Sharpie toe cutter days.
    These people saying Roger Rogerson has been framed for murder with the other copper Glen McNamara the once self title clean skin anti corruption super copper of the NSW Police Force. McNamara should of then stuck to what he was good at writing books about exposing police corruption and drug dealers. He has got way out of his depth with the likes of teaming up with Dodger Rogerson.
    So why did they wrap the body in plastic and take it out in his own boat and dump it at sea, if they didn’t do it?
    Because they thought they were going to get away with being vigilante, judge, jury and executioner of a drug dealer. Like Wild west days or the criminal underbelly tv series?
    Why that could be poetic justice if the deceased was in fact a drug dealer. But you can’t do that in the real world, no matter how justified it may seem, getting rid of drug dealing scum bags.

    Two former very colourful high profile old school street coppers, should have been wise and smart enough to know they were both not going to get away with knocking a drug trafficking ice dealer criminal. And the dumping the body at sea wrapped in plastic. Rogerson should have took some hitman murder tips from the old Sydney king pin gangsters Neddy Smith, Lennie McPherson and George Freeman and company who got rid of there problems some what smarter the Dodger Rogerson. For example take Christopher “Rent A Kill” Flannery. Who has never been found?
    These two legends of the then 80’s Corrupt NSW Police Force, fucked up like two stupid Idiots.
    If they claim there both innocent or being framed by corruption, then what were they doing at the crime scene in the first place. Rogerson and McNamara where caught in the act, that is all there is two it. And they in a very sloppy fashion disposed of their victims body, along with all the other stupid mistakes they have made, which is now coming out in the trial evidence.

    Dumb and Dumber is all that is behind this. No corruption by the NSW Police. At least not on this murder case. Dodger and his anti corruption mate McNamara fucked up big time, and walked right into their own trap by the surveillance police watching there drug trafficking victim.
    I would think even their Wild Colonial Psycho mate the late Chopper Read, would be having a laugh at these two former copper fools predicament of going away in jail for years to come over such dumbness, that being their badly planed and carried out stupidity , along with the murder and dumping the body at sea.
    The next Underbelly series… Could be called instead of ‘The Golden Mile’ – ‘The Dodger and Mate Miles out to sea underbelly adventures. Even Victoria’s Drug king pin Carl “Fat Boy” William’s wasn’t this stupid at getting his enemies knocked.
    He at least got other criminals to get their hands dirty for him, doing his murder gangland contracts.

  15. The Police do all the work investigate the crime, track down, find and arrest the criminals, lock them away safely in police watch house custody and take them in the brawler van, police-prisoner transport van to their court hearing and with the help of their lawyer their walking back out on to the street, free again on bail again. Meanwhile the criminal defence lawyer’s ride aboard the cash cow gravy train kept running on its tracks always, from the misery of innocent people, (victims), that have been wronged by the very accused these lawyers put their hands up to represent to the best of their ability and legal experience in a court of law. Fighting for the rights and mercy of criminals.
    There nothing but glorified very well paid salespeople on a good sales and performance commission, with a university law degrees calling them a silk and allowing them to wear a wig. And business is booming for them, more and more each day, with crime out of hand in the community. They are all getting rich in their legal practice in a recession proof business at the very unfortunate expense , suffering, trauma and misery of all victims of crime and their suffering families. In fact the whole legal system for that matter from top to bottom and everyone in between, with all the endless horrible crime today, business as a defence lawyer has never been better. Why be a used car salesman, when one could make a fortune defending scumbag criminals, by helping them get off or just a excuse in court for a reduced or light sentence from the sympathetic judge or magistrate on the side of criminals instead of victims. And legal Aid there also just riding the criminal defence gravy train from defending criminals.
    These cocky arsehole smug crims walk out of court on bail, by the magistrates, with their crafty grin on their faces, with their defence lawyers telling the defendant, all is going to be sweet, you may walk or just get a Community Based Order, or at worst just a few months or years jail.
    The only people who get life sentence today are the victims of crime. Who don’t have the privilege of a good legal team of lawyers helping them out.
    Is it any wonder the crims are walking out of court today on bail, with a disgraceful grin on their face and spiting at the media, like its all big joke, they are in serious trouble now, but free on bail, because the prison system is too over crowded, to hold them in custody before and during their trial and sentencing.
    Lawyers back in the 1930’s are nothing to the greed of the criminal defence lawyers today.
    Remember the old Carson’s Law in the 80s. Who say’s crime doesn’t pay. It does for the judiciary and its Silks of the legal bar.
    – Then the Officer said! – “Better get a lawyer son, your going to need a real good one, to get you outer this one”! – “Don’t drop the soap, don’t smoke no dope” – “Get yourself a suit and tie and get your hair cut way up high”! – “Better get yourself a Lawyer son, your going to need a real good one!”.Ha, Ha.
