I wonder if Jimmy Governor knew about him and was trying to outdo him?
Lynch was believed at the time to have murdered nine adults and children, but he confessed to 10.
He also, like Jimmy Governor, raped a young girl.
His alias was 'Dunleavy'.
A 'forensic' was originally a forum to allow someone accused of a misdemeanor to present their case. This is a forum for Jimmy Governor, a part-Aboriginal itinerant farm labourer who in one week in July 1900 brutally murdered 10 people, including my great grand-mother, three of her children and their school teacher. This is also a forum for his victims. My aim is to investigate the matter further, iron out the many conflicting 'facts', and view what happened from a 21st century perspective.
