Media release: James Gargasoulas guilty verdict


Families of the victims of the Bourke Street rampage welcomed today's jury verdict according to their lawyer from Redlich's Work Injury Lawyers.

Today, the jury formally recognised that on 20 January 2017, James Gargasoulas murdered six innocent people and recklessly endangered the lives of 27 others.

His callous actions on that day shattered the lives of the family and friends whose loved ones he stole.

The families of the victims are grateful to all those whose hard work secured today's outcome, and for the ongoing support they have received during this difficult time. They appreciate the continued respect of their privacy as they prepare for the sentencing process.


Redlich's Work Injury Lawyers represent the families of five of the victims: Zachary Bryant, Jess Mudie, Matthew Si, Bhavita Patel and Yosuke Kanno.
