VICTIMS : 5 dead, 1 wounded.
1987 could almost be called the year of Mass Murder in
Australia. Up until then we had no real gun massacres, but in that year
first there was Julian Knight then Frank Vitkovich. Here in Australia
these two are considered the pioneers of Mass Murder, but one man
overlooked by the mass media is John Tran.
John Tran was engaged to Lieu Huynh until late
September, 1987, when she broke it off and immediately became engaged to
another man. Not surprisingly this annoyed Tran a little, and he swore
revenge on her. He instantly went into planning mode and her demise was
Tran's plan was acted out on October 10, 1987, when he
showed up at the backdoor of his ex's families home. The first to feel
his wrath was Thuan Huynh, 63, Lieu's father. He was shot repeatedly in
the head and body until he managed to escape to the back yard, where he
Tran then stormed through the house killing Lieu's
mother, one sister and one brother along the way. Lieu's other brother
was seriously wounded as well.
Eventually Tran found what he was looking for, the
whore who had humiliated him.
He finished her with one shot, then raised the gun to
his head and did as all good mass murderers do, blew his brains out.
Amusingly, kinda, Tran could have easily killed Lieu's
two other sisters, who were in the room when he killed himself, but as
he had completed his mission, he chose not to. I bet the surviving
sisters wished that Lieu had opened the door, meaning they would still
have a family.
