'MAKO/Files' Online and
MAKO/Files Online WTC are Australia's 1st " FREE PUBLIC" Paedophile/Sex offender registries, and collectively list/ name
over 2000 offenders nationwide, with more offenders being added on a regular basis.. 98+% of offenders listed in the
MAKO/Files Online and MAKO/Files
Online- (WTC) have been convicted by a court of law.
(The MAKO/Files Online also lists Child Killers and individuals convicted
of other forms of child abuse/NOT only child sexual abuse)
A typical Online
MAKO/File (offenders file) may include the
where possible,occupation,offence-s committed,sentence received by the court, and last known
(last known location is taken from time of offenders
offence/sentence,unless otherwise stated).
AWARENESS = PREVENTION..
Not only can the MAKO/Files online be used by the Australian PUBLIC to better
protect themselves and their CHILDREN/ families from proven sex offenders,
they have many other benefits, including..
some offenders = yet another form of prevention..
+ being a useful resource
for Australian and overseas Companies-businesses-organisations
to assist with screening potential employees/volunteers etc..
+ a useful resource for media
+ a useful method of
constantly lobbying Australian Government/s and politicians to do more to
protect the PUBLIC from sexual predators.
"Tougher sentencing for offenders,greater government
funding for prevention/better victim assistance and public sex offender
registries would be a good foundation to work from."
Raymond Edmunds - (Mr STINKY)
Age:67 yrs old (2011)
Sentence: Edmunds is
serving a life sentence for the 1966 murders of 2
Shepparton teenagers..also serving a 30yr term
with a minimum of 16yrs and 8 months for a series
of rapes and attempted rapes.In Oct 1998, was given another 10yrs jail
for sexually abusing a young girl, from the age of 4yrs.
Offence/Other:Killer/ Rapist/ Paedophile..REPEAT SERIOUS SEXUAL OFFENDER.
Called "Mr Stinky" because of his body odour.
How clever cops and science are bringing dumb crooks to justice
The detectives dragged in hundreds of innocent suspects but missed the killer.
One rogue cop tried to flog a "confession" out of the murdered girl's ex-boyfriend but the
kid had the grit not to cave in.
He was lucky, because then premier Sir Henry Bolte might have hanged him instead of Ronald
Ryan to win a law-and-order election.
In the end, the "backroom boys" from forensics did what the old-time detectives didn't. They
nailed the man who abducted and murdered Shepparton teenagers Garry Heywood and Abina Madill.
It was a win for science and common sense over hunches, punches and long lunches.
It all started the day after Garry and Abina went missing from a rock dance in February 1966,
when a fingerprint expert found a small unidentified print on Heywood's FJ Holden.
The print stayed unidentified - and was kept secret - for 16 years, until a sharp-eyed fingerprint
expert named Andy Wall matched it with prints left at a series of rape scenes in Melbourne's
eastern suburbs in the 1970s.
The match meant police knew the suburban rapist was probably the Shepparton killer of 1966, but
they did not know his name.
That changed on March 16, 1985, when a man was routinely printed in Albury after his arrest for
The man dubbed "Mr Stinky" exposed himself in more ways than one that day.
He was revealed as Raymond Edmunds, who is still in jail. He will die there, if there's any justice.
Fingerprinting had finally succeeded where "old-style" conventional policing had failed.
But the case could have been solved in days or weeks - instead of decades - with a clue a
ballistics expert found at the murder scene.
Brian Thompson picked up a piece of plastic trim where Abina Madill had been bludgeoned to
death and Garry Heywood shot, and identified it as from a Mossberg .22 rifle.
A simple check of known Mossberg owners would have fingered Edmunds, but local police dropped
the ball and let the killer run free for another 19 years, during which time he committed
dozens of violent rapes.
Eventually, the Edmunds case was a triumph of good forensic work over shoddy detective work.
Not that forensic science has always been infallible.
The "foetal blood" debacle that allowed the Lindy Chamberlain miscarriage of justice proves that.
But year in, year out, crime scene analysts prove hundreds of cases beyond reasonable doubt.
They are the quiet achievers of law enforcement.
It is just over 50 years since Victoria's crime scene unit started work, 25 years since it
moved from the old Spring St forensic office to the purpose-built complex at Macleod.
It is almost 100 years since the force opened a fingerprint branch, about 80 since the
ballistics section started.
As drug-related crime has spiralled, the chemistry division has grown, too. And with the
rising importance of DNA, the biology division is growing fast - it's as revolutionary as
fingerprinting was a century ago.
But these are laboratories, staffed by civilian scientists. Only sworn police staff the
Crime Scene Division, which takes in fingerprints, ballistics, photographic, vehicle examination
and disaster victim identification.
The division is headed by Det-Supt Doug O'Loughlin, who has spent 46 years in the job
he joined as a teenage cadet.
When he was in the Special Operations Group, he ran raids on outlaw motorcycle gangs
and armed robbers. Now the former action man advocates the science of crime fighting.
The basic skills of ballistics and toolmark examination have not changed remarkably
since the force got its first comparison microscope in the 1930s, but its firearms
"reference library" now has 4500 weapons, from antique flintlocks to anti-tank guns.
Here is a machine gun seized from a Hells Angels clubhouse, there the little black .32
calibre pistol "Squizzy" Taylor used in his fatal shootout with "Snowy" Cutmore in 1927,
yellowed handwritten tag on the trigger guard.
When a bullet - the lead slug or the empty case, or both - is recovered from a crime
scene, its origin is checked by test-firing the most likely weapons from the library.
In July 1992, three young people were tied up and shot dead in Burwood. A month later,
a man was disarmed while threatening a couple near St Kilda Rd.
When a ballistics expert test-fired the robber's sawn-off rifle, he checked the bullet
against those from the Burwood triple murder. It matched.
Ashley Mervyn Coulston was jailed for life and the case is still used as a textbook example
of ballistics work.
Fingerprinting started in Victoria in 1903 but since the 1990s computers have transformed
the section from a labour-intensive test of memory and eyesight into a modern
When someone is fingerprinted the prints are automatically scanned against the national
database of about three million sets.
Are they already "known to police"? Are there any outstanding warrants for the person? And,
crucially, are the prints linked to any unsolved crimes?
There are close to a million images from unsolved crime scenes on file, and the computer
checks every new set against them. Sometimes they get a "hit".
That's why a drunk driver who has dodged trouble for 20 years might find himself charged
with a distant teenage offence. Or a pub brawler gets questioned about why his fingerprints
were found at an interstate murder scene long ago.
Memories fade but the system never forgets.
Sgt Steve Dunn says the computers run checks in minutes that would have taken "50 years"
when he joined the section in 1988.
Dunn shows off a hi-tech "torch" that throws any colour of the rainbow.
Another favourite machine produces laser light. These show up fingerprints and fluids invisible
to the naked eye at the flick of a switch.
"This is CSI stuff," he says.
Stupid crooks are easy targets. When a man robbed a Flemington service station recently,
security film showed him touching the glass door, which is why crime scene analysts immediately
spotted his palm print.
They had the offender's name within 20 minutes. He was arrested as soon as he got home.
Dunn has a piece of black plastic on the bench. The story is that an alert policeman pulled
over a driver because he had plastic protruding from his car boot.
The cop found the boot had been lined with plastic. By the time the police found the body
the driver was intending to pick up and dispose of, he was claiming someone else must have
put the plastic in his boot.
His story collapsed when a special light showed up his hand print on the plastic.
Then there's the story of the woman who police know was with her lover in Bendigo when a
rival truck driver was shot dead in the 1980s. Detectives visited her in Queensland many
years later to tell her new tests proved her saliva was on cigarette butts found at the scene.
As Moses said, be sure your sin will find you out. It's in the DNA.
Victim Pleads To Mr Stinky....Admit Your Evil Deeds
A WOMAN raped by convicted killer Raymond
"Mr Stinky" Edmunds
yesterday begged him to
confess all his evil crimes.
The woman challenged
the serial rapist to show he had
"some sort of a soul and a
conscience" by admitting his
guilt and ending the suffering
of other victims.
"If he's got any kind of
conscience he could help ease
the grief of so many families
by telling what he knows," she said.
The woman is convinced
Edmunds could have raped
more than 100 women before
he was finally arrested in 1985.
The Herald Sun revealed
last Friday that Edmunds is
being investigated for the
brutal murder of Melbourne
mother Elaine Jones, at Tocumwal in 1980.
New South Wales homicide
squad detectives reopened
the investigation after receiving new information linking
Edmunds to the killing.
Edmunds, 54, is serving a life
sentence with no minimum
term for the murders of Shepparton teenagers Abina Madill
and Garry Heywood in 1966.
But the woman believes
Edmunds is responsible for
many more crimes, including
A lot of his rape victims
only came forward after he
was arrested and we set up
support groups," she said.
"Many of his victims felt
ignored by the system because
no charges were ever laid.
I'm convinced he did other
murders, I honestly believe
his murder victims could be in
"But he's got nothing to
lose by telling what he knows,
because he can't get a longer
sentence. I'd plead with him
to tell the police and clear up
a lot of this stuff.
"It's not going to bring
people back, but it could end
the pain and agony for a lot of
people," she said.
The woman said she
hoped Edmunds' guilty plea
last week to carnal knowledge
charges indicated he might be
finally feeling some remorse.
"He originally pleaded not
guilty to my rape, but apparently
changed his mind because he
didn't want people to think he was a monster if
the circumstances came out
in court," she said.
Ms McDonald was threatened and raped by Edmunds
in front of her five-year-old son.
Edmunds, 54, is suspected
of at least 30 rapes in Melbourne's north-eastern,
eastern and south-eastern suburbs during the 1970s and
He was convicted of three
rapes and two attempted
rapes. But limits on police
detention time under legislation at the time of his arrest
meant he was never questioned about many other
A court order will soon be
sought under new legislation,
which can compel serving
prisoners to provide a blood
sample for DNA testing.
Police hope a DNA com-
parison will link Edmunds to
some of the unsolved rapes
and other crimes.
