    Death on Night Watch. Constable Joseph Looker.

    The case of Joseph Looker (also spelt Luker), is one of Australia's earliest unsolved homicides. It has remained so for over two centuries. No matter how early a case is, it is still possible to identify some form of evidence, testimonial, documentary or physical. 

    Tragically, the murder of Constable Looker marked the first death of a police officer on duty. Could it also have been one of the first cases of organised crime and corruption? Indeed, the circumstances of Looker’s death led to the hanging of a thief — no less than three times. Was his survival a miracle, divine intervention, coincidence, or luck? Perhaps this was one of the most daring and risky escapes in Australian history.
