Families of the victims of the Bourke Street rampage welcomed today’s jury verdict according to their lawyer, Genna Angelowitsch from Adviceline 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.”

Ms Angelowitsch said, “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.”
