Anita Cobby killer Gary Murphy bashed in prison shower


Gary Murphy, 61, suffered severe injuries after it’s understood he was allegedly attacked by multiple people in a shower block area of the prison.

A Corrective Services NSW spokeswoman told news.com.au an inmate was transferred to St Vincents Hospital, Darlinghurst, after he was allegedly assaulted around 10.20am today.

He sustained severe head and facial injuries — and it’s understood he was in severe shock when medics arrived, but was still conscious.

Murphy, along with brothers Michael and Les, as well as John Travers and Michael Murdoch, spotted Ms Cobby on the evening of February 2, 1986 as she was walking home.

The registered nurse had been out for dinner with friends and alighted at Blacktown railway station around 10pm.

The men, who spotted her from the car they were travelling in, dragged Ms Cobby into the vehicle and drove 5km to a rural farm in Prospect.

There they took turns raping the 26-year-old before Travers slit her throat and left her to die.

Two days later, a farmer found Ms Cobby’s naked body face down in the Prospect paddock.

She had been beaten, repeatedly raped and tortured — her fingers broken and bones dislocated.
