Who Killed Tania Burgess? Killer Identity
Tania Burgess, 15, was brutally murdered by being stabbed 48 times by a man who had just been released from jail.
On July 19, 2005, at Foresters Beach on the NSW Central Coast, a teenager, then 16, ambushed and fatally stabbed Tania while she was just 15 years old.
The killer then fled the scene. Witnesses heard the name of Tania's murderer as they raced to her aid just before she passed away. On Monday morning, the 32-year-old was let out on parole from Cessnock Correctional Center.
Due to state regulations prohibiting identifying adults who committed crimes as children, he will remain anonymous 17 years after the irrational attack. His only recognized name is DL.
His early release from custody and how his family wanted him to remain in custody were both covered by The DailyMail. The killer will be released on August 1 despite the family of the murdered child, Burgees, pleading with him to remain in custody. Justice James Wood claims that the offender has come forward after following his instructions.
DL is subject to 15 bail requirements, including electronic monitoring, reporting of all movements daily to the authorities, and participation in forensic psychological treatment.
