In 1988, Scott Johnson finished the last assignment for his PHD in mathematics and then caught a ferry to Manly beach to celebrate. Two days later, his naked body was found at the bottom of a nearby cliff. Was it suicide, as the police quickly decided or was he the victim of a gay hate murder?
A 2005 police investigation, Operation Taradale, revealed men had forced to their deaths from cliffs near Bondi in the late ’80s.
Taradale was started to investigate the disappearances or bashing murders of six gay men in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs from 1987-1990.
The enduring mystery of the young American’s death is the subject of Australian Story on Monday, February 11 at 8pm.
