NOTORIOUS Queensland killer Storm Brooke, who murdered another
inmate with a fork during a jailhouse brawl, has gone back to
prison after being caught at a Mark "Chopper" Read show on the
Brooke, 44, was living on the Gold Coast after being paroled in
July. She served 21 years for stabbing fellow inmate Debbie Dick.
But Brooke was locked up again at the Brisbane Women's
Correctional Centre at Wacol, in Brisbane's west, on February 1
for breaching the conditions of her parole release order, which
included not attending a licensed premises or drinking alcohol.
She'd been invited to attend a "Chopper and Hammer Show" at the
Runaway Bay Tavern on Friday, January 27, by the notorious
ex-criminal Mark "Chopper" Read and his bodyguard and best friend,
Mark "Hammer" Dixon.
Read told The Courier-Mail he'd invited Brooke in the hope she
might consider sharing her own story and wrote to the Queensland
parole board vouching for her behaviour.
"She sat near the stage. She didn't go near the bar," Read
said. "We thought she had a story to tell and if she could get her
message out it could be a help and a positive thing for young
people or kids in trouble."
Read said Brooke's return to jail was "sad" and "unfair".
Brooke was serving time for assault and armed robbery when she
was jailed for life for stabbing fellow inmate Dick 14 times with
a fork in 1990, the only murder in a female prison in Queensland.
The parole board will meet before February 28 to decide
Brooke's fate and whether her order will stay suspended, be upheld
