Back in the late 1950's, lottery winners didn't have the option of remaining anonymous. Whether they liked it or not, their names, and sometimes their home addresses, were printed in the newspapers.

On June 1st, 1960, Sydney residents, Bazil and Freda Thorne, won 100,000 pounds in the 10th Sydney Opera House lottery. One month later, their eight-year-old son, Graeme, vanished while on his way to school. For almost two months, his friends and family prayed and hoped that Graeme would be found safe and well. Then, on August 16th, a group of children playing in a vacant housing lot in the Sydney suburb of Seaforth, discovered Graeme's body wrapped in a picnic blanket. He'd been beaten and strangled.

On October 18th, Stephen Leslie Bradley confessed to Graeme's murder and was sentenced to life in prison the following year.
