    Malcolm Naden - Shoot out with NSW Cops

    I'd never heard of this bloke before, but I was listening to the radio earlier and it caught my attention. Sure some of the Aussies will know a bit about this so I might be going over old ground with my post.

    Malcolm Naden has been on the run for 7 years. He is wanted in connection with the murder of one of his cousins and the disappearance of another.

    He's a pretty good bushman by all accounts, they reckon when he first fled the police he was living in a roof space at a Zoo and killing Kangaroos by night to survive. Since then he's supposedly been living off the land in Northern NSW.

    The police caught up with him today and he shot an injured a cop before escaping again. They (police) are now offering a $100,000 reward for info leading to his arrest, which is by all accounts the first time this has happened since they were hunting Ned Kelly.

    I know that the guy needs to be caught, but, deep down for reasons unknown I'm kind of want him to keep evading the police, maybe it's down to reading to many "boys own" stories when I was a kid or whatever.

    Australia is a massive old place and he's been dodging em for nearly 7 years - do you think it's possible they will never catch him? Or will the might of the Blue Heelers get their man?

    Interesting story anyway.

    If he shot a cop, he's probably shortened his life expectancy.

    Has Mr. Naden got a friend like Gazza to bring him some fried chicken and a tin of beer though?

    i don't think his life style is going to get any thing like romantic? This guy is a killer who is living in a crawl space in a zoo and eating Kangaroo for 7 years? I think that he would want to get caught!
