On Father’s Day of 2005, Robert Farquharson was driving his three sons Jai, Tyler and Bailey aged 10, 7 and 2 years old, to their mothers house. His car ran off the road and into a dam. Whilst Farquharson escaped, the three boys went down with the car and drowned. "Murder", they yelled! "How could anyone be that evil?", they asked.
Farquharson was tried and convicted of murdering his three sons, but won his appeal. He was again tried in a subsequent second trail, and again convicted. He has spent the last ten years in protective custody of maximum security prison, labelled 'unsuitable for mixing' with the unforgiving general prison population. The case is engrained in the Australian psychy and Robert has been placed along side 'the worst of the worst' of Australian criminals.
Road to Damnation takes a fresh look at the largely circumstantial evidence used to convict Farquharson. Through the eyes of a scientist, flaws are systematically uncovered, not only flaws in the case against Robert Farquason, but in the criminal justice system that convicted him.
