My apologies for the quality of this video - this is a saved copy from my desktop after the original video (published by Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper crime reporter Andrea Hamblin) was removed apparently by her. I publish it here not to prove the truth of what the witness heard, only he knows that, rather to prove the fact that he reported hearing it at the time.
I am disturbed at the idea news outlets would censor relevant news to suit an agenda.
