In 1987, a madman went on a shooting rampage through a main street of Melbourne (see episode 69).
Three months later, another man, influenced by that massacre and suffering from severe mental illness, entered the Australia Post building on Queen St, Melbourne - three blocks from the Russell St Police Headquarters (see episode 66) - and killed eight people, including himself.
