One woman's view of Peter Keogh

Coward and killer

I spent a good part of my youth at the Commercial Hotel Friday nights and Saturday mornings. I remember the first time Vicki brought that DOG to our drinking circle. no-one liked him; he rarely spoke, never made eye contact and was quite clearly evil. I do remember him telling me that he regretted every tattoo he ever had - sounds like there was a lot more he should have been regretting.

I lost contact with most of that group ... but when my husband told me that Vicki had been stabbed to death I knew instantly who would have done it.

Phil I just want to share with you my continued grief for the loss of your beautiful sister and the OUTRAGEOUS injustice in the trial. i am so glad he's dead - he brought nothing to this world.

I know people say nice things about those that are gone but truly, your sister was an angel. We used to laugh about her taste in men, saying she attracted stray dogs. She was so caring, accepting, compassionate and loving. Really, almost naive in the way she let people in to her life. I am one who deeply appreciated her generous nature.

I now teach secondary school and this year teach Yr.11 Legal Studies, naturally I brought up Vicki's story as an example of the biased system we have. I have yet to read your book, I feel anxious just knowing I will find out the horrific things that Vicki endured. I need to tell you how good it is that a man like you (tough bloke) has taken up this issue which is such a feminist issue.

The chattels nature of male-female relationships. I can not in my wildest dreams imagine Vicki PROVOKING anyone. I don't mean she was a doormat, far from it. She was as feisty as the next woman but just so understanding and forgiving. She was a beautiful gift- lost to this world. I am honoured to have known her and when I stumbled on your website I felt compelled to write. I was out of the social circle in 1987 and did not attend the funeral. Nor have I been able to discuss this with anyone who knew Vicki.

I hope you don't mind me writing.

My best wishes to you Phil - all the best to your family, truly local legends.
