Crime Investigation Australia : The Devil Inside (3-3-2014)
In August 1978, John Cribb was on parole after having served six years of a nine-year

He broke into the Connells Baulkham Hills home and when
he came out at about 3pm, Valda Connell, 39, had just come home in her car with two of
her six children, Sally, 10, and Damien, 4.
Cribb kidnapped them and drove north. He later
rang Valda's husband, Paul, from a phonebox and said he had been having an affair
with Valda, who had now run away with him to Queensland.
Police originally believed Cribb's
story, despite its implausibility; the Connells were a strong church-going family, and said the

Notorious Killer to Apply for Jail Release Date
A notorious triple killer is to undergo psychiatric testing within the next three weeks as
part of his bid to secure a release date from prison.
John Ernest Cribb, 56, received three life sentences after being convicted of the stabbing murders
of Valda Connell and her children Sally, 10, and Damien, 4, in Sydney's northwest in August 1978.
He also received a 12-year sentence for raping Mrs Connell.
Cribb and another criminal escaped from the Morisset Hospital for the criminally insane in 1979, where
he was awaiting trial for the murders.
They became the most wanted men in the state.
In the two weeks before they were recaptured, they committed 31 offences between them, including rapes,
kidnaps, assaults and robberies in Newcastle and Sydney.
At the time Cribb received his life terms, the sentence did not mean for the term of his natural life.
He has now applied to the NSW Supreme Court for a redetermination of his "life" terms and wants to be given
a minimum and maximum sentence.
His lawyer, Will Hutchins, today told the court he would be psychiatrically examined within the next three
After receiving the report, the Crown will then decide if it requires another assessment.
The matter will be mentioned again on October 25.
