Gary Francis Newman Identified As Carly Ryan's Killer



A 50-year-old Australian man who had been sentenced to a ridiculous 29 years for the murder of a teenage girl and who's name had previously been stricken from the press has now finally been revealed.

Victoria resident Gary Francis Newman was convicted of using the alias "Brandon" online to meet and then brutally beat and subsequently kill Carly Ryan by drowning her in the small Port Elliot river sometime on February 19th, 2007.

Her body was found by police the next day later...

Newman, who identified himself on MySpace as "Kurupt Koala", used an alter-ego to communicate with the then 15-year-old after initially meeting her on VampireFreaks.com.

Media reports had earlier suggested the two met on Myspace.

At the time Newman had portrayed himself online as "emo", a manufactured movement driven by an anti-jock subculture that increasingly grew online in the mid 2000's.

At least that's how I see it...
