Mark Errin Rust
Age: 43 yrs old
Sentenced April 2004 in the SA Supreme Court to life in jail without parole.
"Classified as unable to control his sexual urges".
Pleaded guilty in May 2003 in the Adelaide Supreme Court to the murders of Megumi Suzuki (2001)
and Maya Jakic (1999).Has prior sex offences
dating back to 1983. Also pleaded guilty to assaulting another woman
and committing an act of gross indecency on the same night that Megumi
was abducted and killed. Also pleaded guilty to raping a woman at Rose
Park in August 2001. A friend of miss Jakic's said in relation to the sentencing-"We all know
what he has done, what he is capable of doing again, so why give him a chance."
Mark Errin Rust, who murdered Megumi Suzuki and Maya Jackic,
will ask SA Supreme Court to grant him a non-parole period
His crimes were so evil he was jailed for two life terms without parole but
today, 11 years after his sentencing, the man who killed Megumi Suzuki and Maya
Jakic will ask for his freedom.
Mark Errin Rust, 49, of Gilles Plains, has filed an application seeking the
imposition of a non-parole period for killing those two women, raping a third and attacking a fourth.
He will be represented in the Supreme Court on Monday by defence barrister George Mancini.
Rust was sentenced to two concurrent life sentences after pleading guilty to the murders
of Maya Jakic and Megumi Suzuki.
Ms Jakic was murdered by Rust on April 12, 1999, and her body dumped at the Payneham Police Station,
for refusing his offer of “a lift and some fun”.
She remained there — despite a large-scale police search — until Rust made an anonymous
000 call revealing her location.
On August 3, 2001, Rust stalked and murdered Ms Suzuki, a Japanese exchange student, on Goodwood
Rd at Westbourne Park and stuffed her body into a rubbish bin.
SA Police had to excavate and search 10,000 tonnes of rubbish at the Wingfield
dump before locating her in December 2001.
As with Ms Jackic, Rust was not initially suspected of that crime — he was already
in prison, and identified only after boasting that he had Ms Suzuki’s CD player in his cell.
When asked why he had murdered Ms Suzuki, Rust replied: “Because I did.”
It subsequently emerged Rust had a 30-year history of violent and sexually
charged offending, starting with public masturbation and indecent exposure while in his early teens.
Psychologists linked his behaviour with his 1992 diagnosis of Kleinfelter’s Syndrome, or possession
of an additional X chromosome causing shrunken testicles and fertility problems.
Rust received additional jail time — merged into his two life sentences — for non-fatal assaults
on two other women in the days prior to Ms Suzuki’s murder.
One of those women was raped by Rust while she worked late in a Norwood business, the
other was assailed on Goodwood Rd just one day before Ms Suzuki’s murder.
A 2004 psychological report concluded Rust’s claims of remorse were “fairly shallow”
and that he would have killed more women had he not been apprehended.
Rust’s application is listed for mention, before Justice Ann Vanstone, at 10am.
Also applying for his supervision order to be revoked is Aliya Zilic — who killed
his three-year-old son, Imran, and threw his body down a Coober Pedy mine shaft in April, 2008.
During his trial, the court heard Zilic was a drug addict and schizophrenic who believed his ex
wife was “working for the devil” and “possessed by demons”.
He was found not guilty of the murder due to mental incompetence but has since
been held in custody indefinitely under a mental health supervision order.

Inside The Sick Mind Of A Double Murderer
Rust was just
13 when he
started following pretty girls, all the
while fantasising about having sex with them.
Later, he found gratification in exposing himself,
thrilled by the horrified reactions of his victims.
His sexual urges increased in intensity and frequency - as did his hatred
for women, caused by a
series of failed relationships
and his own poor health.
Rust's every move became frustrated by
which left him infertile and
frustrated his heightened
predatory desires. That
frustration finally culminated in murder and rape.
Earlier this week, Supreme Court Justice Margaret Nyland jailed the
39-year-old for life without
parole for the brutal murders of Croatian immigrant
Maya Jakioc and Japanese
schoolgirl Megumi Suzuki.
Yesterday, Justice Nyland
imposed a concurrent
12-year term for the crimes
he committed in and
around those murders - and
again denied him parole.
The sentences bring to an
end three decades of
deviance, violence and uncontrollable sexual urges -
as revealed by two psychiatric reports tendered to
The reports are based on
sessions Rust had with
Royal Adelaide Hospital experts Dr Narain Nambiar
and Dr Ken O'Brien after
his 2001 arrest - one of the
few times the killer has been
examined in his life.
Dr Nambiar says Rust
"exhibited very abnormal
behaviour from a very early
age". "During his early
teens, he first exposed himself to a woman and found
this so much more gratifying than masturbation in
private," Dr Nambiar says.
"He told me that it was
more thrilling to masturbate in front of a pretty
woman, mainly due to the
reaction it would provoke
for his victim."
Rust was charged no less
than seven times with indecency offences - but was
only fined, never convicted.
His normal sex life, meanwhile, was dysfunctional.
One of his two marriages
involved "fighting fits" before having sex. "This often
made him angry and frustrated ... although he had
the urge to have sex, he
often found it difficult to
(perform)," he says.
Dr O'Brien says that, in
1992, Rust was diagnosed
with Kleinfelter's Syndrome
- he has an additional X
chromosome, shrunken testicles and fertility problems.
In June 1993, he went to
jail for lighting a $642,000
fire at Kensington.
On April 12, 1999 - two
months after his second
marriage disintegrated -
Rust attacked and murdered Maya Jakic at Payneham. He later told Dr
O'Brien that Ms Jakic had
refused his offers of a lift and
"He grabbed her mouth
with his hand and choked
her... I asked him why he
did this, to which he replied
'at the time it was a thrill',"
Dr O'Brien says. "He told
me (he wantedl to have sex
with her, but he decided to
kill her at the last moment."
Her body was found six
days later, after Rust made
an anonymous call to 000.
He was jailed again in late
1999 for trespassing, and
was released on parole on
July 23, 2001. Ten days later,
he returned to his old ways
- grabbing a woman at a
Cumberland Park ATM and
masturbating in front of her
until she fled.
"It would appear that the
more confidence Rust had
developed with regard to his
ability to fulfil his sexual
urges, the more serious his
offending has become," Dr
Nambiar says. "What is also
very significant is that there
appears to have been an
escalation in the nature of
offending... culminating in
murder and rape."
On August 3, 2001, he
murdered Megumi Suzuki
at Westbourne Park, wrapping her body in plastic and
dumping it in a rubbish bin.
She was eventually found
in December, 2001, under
10,000 tonnes of rubbish at
Wingfield. "Rust told me
that (murder) was 'different'," Dr O'Brien says.
"When I asked him why he
killed her, he replied 'because I did'."
As police frantically
searched for Ms Suzuki,
Rust struck again - on August 16, 2001, he cut the
power to a Kensington Rd
office building, broke in and
raped the lone female occupant. Although armed with
a knife, Rust did not harm
her further - he ran away
and she saw part of his car's
registration number, this
leading to his arrest.
Rust later confessed his
crimes to a fellow prison
inmate, and was found to
have Ms Suzuki's CD player
in his cell.
The double-murderer is
now "disgusted" by his actions, but both doctors say
the murderer seems "fairly
shallow" and shows "what
appears to be a lack of remorse". "Rust conceded
that if he had not been
apprehended, his problems
would have continued and
even maybe more killings
(would have occurred)," Dr
"In view of the murders
that he has committed, and
taking into account the acknowledged aggressive rape
fantasies, it is my opinion
that Rust is an extremely
with... a high probability
that he would re-offend in a
similar manner should he be
released from custody at

Court Hears How Killer Left Mothers In Torment
Although buried in her
native Japan, a reminder of
the short life of Megumi
Suzuki endures in Adelaide.
The tranquillity of her memorial plaque, in Centennial Park
Cemetery, contrasts is with the
horror of her death and where
her body was found, under
10,000 tonnes of garbage at
Wingfleld dump in August, 2001.
In a statement read to the
Supreme Court yesterday
Megumi's mother, Masako, told
how the dump - and the actions
of sexual predator Mark Erin
Rust - continue to torment her.
"I still don't know now to
accept my daughter's death. It
makes me insane when I think
of her being treated like rubbish
and dumped with rubbish for
months," Mrs Suzuki said.
"She was my dream and my
hopes, now my heart fills with
anger and bitterness. Megumi
wanted to be a counsellor to
international students .. - why
should someone who only
wanted to help, be killed?"
Half a world away, another
mother, Jagoda Jelic, suffers the
same pain and grief at the hands
of the same man.
Her daughter, Maya Jakic,
was also murdered by Rust and
her body also dumped, this time
in bushes near the Payneham
police station in April 1999.
In her statement. Ms Jelic said
she had since buried Maya near
her home in Croatia.
"Why would anyone want to
kill Maya and cover her with
branches, thinking no one would
find her and he could cover his
dirty crime?" Ms Jelic said. "My
whole world and future was in
Maya ... my life now is going to
the cemetery every day, no matter if it is rain, sun or snow."
Rust, 38, of Gilles Plains, is
serving two concurrent life sentences after pleading guilty to
He also pleaded guilty to one
count of rape, one count of assault and to committing an act
of gross indecency on August 2
2001, one day before Megumi
Mrs Suzuki and Ms Jelic's
statements were read to Justice
Margaret Nyland to help determine Rust's non-parole period.
The Office of the Director of
Public Prosecutions wants Rust
- who has a criminal history that
includes 11 incidents of indecent
behaviour and gross indecency
- declared incapable of controlling his sexual urges.
If declared, Rust would be
held after his sentence until
deemed by psychiatrists to be
"fit" to re-enter society.
Rust sat quietly through the
hearing, listening intently to and
staring at Eda Gregov, who read
Ms Jelic's statement, and Fusae
Simpson, who read Mrs
Suzuki's. Ms Simpson told Rust
that he had "left eternal scars
on the hearts" of the families.
"The Suzukis are good people
and they have no unkind words
to say about you, but I am sure
they are badly hurt inside and
will never forgive you," she said.
"You have given so much pain
to such an innocent and wonderful family."
Ms Gregov told Rust her life-
long friend, Ms Jelic, was a shell
of her former self.
"I can only say to you that you
have not only killed and taken
the life of Maya, you have also
completely destroyed the life of
her family," she said.
Justice Nyland will hear more
submissions next month.
