ABOUT THE BOOK
In January 2019 a young woman’s brutally murdered body was found near a tram stop in Melbourne, Australia. Her name was Aiia Maasarwe and she was a Palestinian who believed in peace in the Middle East. Three days later Codey Herrmann, a young Aboriginal man, pleaded guilty to the murder and is now serving 36 years in jail.
Many unanswered questions remain. Why did Aiia become a target in Australia? Why did a troubled young Aboriginal man, with a severely deprived background but no previous record, suddenly become a killer? In this compelling booklet, expanded from blog posts on this website, veteran journalist Alex Mitchell investigates.
