PROFILING NED KELLY
On June 18 2010, visitors joined FBI trained profilig expert, Steve Longford as he delved deep into the character of Australia's most notorious Bushranger, Ned Kelly. Steve provided an insightful discussion on both Ned Kelly and Constable Thomas McIntyre, who was the sole witness to the murders of three police at Stringybark Creek by Ned Kelly in 1878.
Both Kelly and McIntyre left written documentation of their experiences and thoughts: Ned Kelly via the Jerilderie Letter and Thomas McIntyre via an unpublished manuscript. Steve used these documents to analyse the personality and psychology of these two fascinating people.
