Case 24

Russell Street Bombing

[Part 1 of 2]

On March 27 1986, an explosion rang out at the Russell Street Police Headquarters in Melbourne’s CBD. The force was so strong that it shattered the glass of office buildings located one block away. The result was pure carnage. Multiple people were seriously injured, including Constable Angela Taylor who eventually lost her life as a result of her injuries.

Was this an act of terrorism, a targeted attack on an individual, or something else altogether? As the investigation unravelled, an anonymous caller leaves police with more questions than answers.
