The Mudgee Guardian & Gulgong Advertiser has a recent report about an Aboriginal man who has been eluding police for around six years for alleged murder and rape, and who was recently sighted in an area in northern NSW where Jimmy Governor hid out.
It's a place called NOWENDOC which is near the town of Walcha.
The main road through the area is called Thunderbolt Way, named after another elusive 'bushranger' called Captain Thunderbolt.
The present day 'bushranger', Malcolm Naden, shot a police near his camp, wounding but not killing him.
Jimmy Governor and his brother Joe did the same when they were on the run.
A comparison with Jimmy Governor, who raped and murdered in 1900, is made in the Mudgee Guardian & Gulgong Advertiser story and can be viewed by clicking here:

There is a reward of $250,000, a quarter of a million dollars, for information leading to Naden's capture.
Jimmy Governor had £1,000 on his head.
He was captured by a group of civilians, not the police, aided by the local 'bush telegraph' of farmers who were on the lookout for him.
