Brisbane's infamous "man in black", Jack Sim, walks the shadowy streets of town in search of stories and tales of horrible history. Since childhood, those long years ago, he has been fascinated not by blocks, bikes or cars, but by the stories of the past, especially crime stories, ghost tales and jail birds.
Jack has dedicated his life to preserving the details of things and subjects that we all find both macabre and thrilling. He has published several crime titles, regularly hosts crime and ghost tours around Brisbane and appears on radio 4BC each Monday night for Crime @ Nine.

SPECIAL WILSTON MURDER CRIME TOUR TO BE RESCHEDULED

Thank you all who have written in wishing to join the special Wilston Murder that was scheduled for this Saturday. 

There is no doubt that this crime still attracts interest - We have had an unexpectedly large number of people indicate their interest  - this has necessitated a need to acquire a larger coach & unfortunately have to change the date for the tour.  

It is to be rescheduled for a few weeks time - there will a few vacancies - those on the standby list will be the first to know!

If you would like to attend, write to admin@jacksim.com.au - indicating how many are in your group.

PLAN TO CREATE EDUCATION FUND IN MEMORY OF BETTY SHANKS

Posted by Jack Sim on 30 September 2012

FUND TO BE CREATED IN VICTIMS NAME

As the month of September closes, the 60th anniversary of the Wilston Murder also ends.

Betty Shanks was a real person, a beautiful soul who was cut down in her prime, She was not just a name associated with a crime. Betty was studying, caring for her parents and working full time - unusual for time. In many ways Betty was a very typical woman of the 21st century.

Betty fought for her life on the night she was to die. She tried to defend herself from the furious attack.  It has always seemed sad to me that her fight to live, and better herself and those around her, has become lost in the six decades of media coverage of her death.

To honour Betty's memory, I would like to announce that a fund is to be created to educate young students and help them reach university.

I hope to be able to announce in greater detail the aims and objectives over the next few months. 

Jack Sim
