A notorious child sex killer who once committed a trail of New Zealand is creating Australian legal history by mounting a Supreme Court challenge to a police order for a compulsory blood sample. Robert Lowe, an evil predator who was followed for two years by police before being arrested, is prime suspect in a 1984 killing of a six-year-old girl.
Six years ago Robert Lowe shed the blood of an innocent child he stalked and abducted just 400 metres from her home. Now the former church elder and Sunday school teacher who for 30 years preyed on little girls in Australia and New Zealand, has won a legal battle to stop police taking a few drops of his own.
Police had sought it for the sake of a second grieving mother. For Julie Maybury, a blood sample and DNA profile from the convicted child sex killer is the best chance of ending the mental torment that began when her six-year-old daughter Kylie was snatched on her way home from a corner shop in Melbourne in 1984.
But police have abandoned a Supreme Court application for the sample after Lowe launched a constitutional challenge funded by legal aid. Legal advisers warned police that although blood samples have been taken from other criminals, their bid for Lowe's would be likely to fail. The Victorian government says it will now rewrite its laws to eliminate the loophole. While the legislation was intended to allow such samples to be taken, lawyers said the wording was so vague it allowed defence lawyers to argue it actually forbade random testing.
