1992 Sydney River McDonald's Murders

As 18 year old McDonald's employee Derek Wood finished his shift, he lingered for a time in the closed restaurant before exiting. Unknown to the staff remaining to complete their nightly tasks, Derek had propped open a basement door and in a matter of moments he would return with two accomplices armed with a shovel and a gun.
