Case 45

Port Arthur

On April 28th, 1996, Martin John Bryant became known as the worst single mass-murderer in Australian history.
21 years later, the Port Arthur Massacre still stands as the 3rd deadliest shooting by a lone gunman in the world.

Known as a loner with the IQ of an 11-year-old, a series of events in Martin Bryant’s life would go on to trigger a rampage that would change hundreds of people’s lives that day, as well as the lives of everyday Australians who looked on in horror.
