60 Minutes June 15

Tonight 60 minutes has a special mid week  episode.

A special edition of 60 MINUTES, tonight at 7.30pm on Channel Nine, will reveal the sordid truth about former NSW Detective Roger Rogerson.

Today a jury found 75-year-old Rogerson guilty of murdering 20-year-old university student Jamie Gao. The murder conviction is proof of what many people have long suspected about Roger Rogerson – that he is evil beyond belief.

 It’s an enormous fall from grace for the highly decorated one-time star of the New South Wales police force.  In the 1980s Rogerson was viewed as a potential future police commissioner. But it was all a lie. In reality he was a bad cop, as crooked as they come.

For the first time, a former good cop, Mick Drury, reveals all to 60 MINUTES about Rogerson’s involvementn the assassination attempt on him in front of his young family. And Drury’s account of his battle to expose Rogerson’s corrupt ways is just the beginning of the real history of the most notorious rat in police ranks.

60 MINUTES also speaks exclusively to Sascha Huckstepp, the daughter of whistleblower Sallie-Anne Huckstepp who was brutally murdered in 1986.

Just years before her death, Sallie-Anne famously claimed to 60 MINUTES that Rogerson had murdered her boyfriend, Warren Lanfranchi.

Tonight, for the first time, Sascha talks about her belief about Rogerson’s role in her mother’s killing.
