The Meanest Man in Pentridge Who You've Never Heard Of
We continue on from last week's episode with a breakdown of a suspect believed to be the perpetrator of the 1941 Pay Car massacre.
That suspect's name is Lionel Charles Thomas. But don't get too used to it, because if there was one thing this guy loved, it was changing his name.
You'll have to keep your wits about you because over the course of this episode, as he lies cheats, murders, but also romances his way around Australia and New Guinea, Lionel will go by no less than three more names.
Despite his long and nefarious history, Lionel went mostly under the radar because of his incredible capacity to commit them on the same days as major historical events.
