Scottish-Australian mass murderer who had emigrated to Australia with his family when he was ten and was deported back to Scotland in May 1997.
McCaffery had an arrest record in both Scotland and Australia for minor offences. In March 1973, his six-week-baby son died accidentally. Under the influence of drugs and alcohol, at the baby's grave site one day, he heard voices that told him the baby would come back to life if he killed seven people. He managed to kill three strangers before he was apprehended. While in prison, he denied the murder of a fellow inmate and then became a model prisoner.
The UK media had a feeding frenzy about the case, even following McCaffery to his job applications. As none of the legislative systems operating within the UK have any jurisdiction over criminals who have been deported back to the UK, they receive no supervision and also no support. This situation was featured recently in BBC's "Frontline Scotland."
Attempting to live a normal life in the UK, McCaffery spends a lot of time producing Aboriginal-style paintings for sale. He and his family went into hiding when they had another baby in April 1998.
