88 cases reopened; gay hate crimes in Sydney '80's-90's - The Feed

Dead partner's name misspelled by police who then gave up on the case

Incredibly sloppy police work, gays found dead with no answers, the gay reporting the bashing locked up and bashed by the police.... This may sound like some story in a far off land where homophobia is rife. 

Yet it's not. It happened in Sydney in the 1980's and 1990's. Eighty eight unexplained deaths of gay people in Sydney and surrounds during that time.

These cases have now been reopened in the present day in an effort to solve the crimes. 

Watch as The Feed uncovers in one case what the police didn't even know; that the name of one person had been misspelled, but instead of the police digging further they simply gave up.
