Crime Investigation Australia: Blood Sport: The Bondi Gay Murders
Blood Sport: The Bondi Gay Murders
Season 3  |  Episode 2  |  Crime + Investigation  |  July 31, 2016

In the late 1980s and early 1990s a series of violent murders took place near Sydney's famous Bondi Beach. Three innocent men were attacked and thrown to their deaths from a cliff top. The murders were part of a much wider wave of violent hate crimes as gangs of youths roamed Sydney's inner suburbs randomly bashing and killing gay men for sport. Among the victims at Bondi was Wollongong television newsreader, Ross Warren, a gay man who disappeared while visiting friends in Sydney in 1989. Ross Warren's case was dismissed by police as a "probable accident". But his mother conducted a long campaign to have her son's disappearance finalised.
