Retired Tasmania Police Detective Inspector David Plumpton joins Jason Byrnes to talk about the murder case that resulted in Tasmania’s last judicially sanctioned hanging. David also talks about his plans regarding the victim’s place of rest. The victim, Evelyn Maughan, is buried in an unmarked grave and David wants to erect a headstone to honour her. First, he needs the permission of a family member.
For a few weeks the APJ will also display on its homepage, the 1992 article about the case titled Tasmania’s Last Hanging. The article is written by historian, Reg Watson.
