3 David Hicks: Terrorist or Tourist? Born into what is generally described as an average family in Adelaide in August 1975, there was little in David Hicks’ early years to suggest he would become one of Australia’s most infamous people. But along the way, Hicks’ thirst for the sort of adventures you don’t normally find in tourist brochures found him locked up in solitary confinement by the US in the notorious Guantanamo Bay in Cuba – the world’s most secure prison – accused of being an al Qaeda terrorist.

The cellmate went to the police and when the two men teamed up on release from prison, police fitted the informant with a listening device that recorded Suckling telling the terrible details of how he had murdered and dismembered Jodie with an axe and disposed of her body parts. This time the DPP elected to prosecute. The jury found Suckling guilty of the murder of Jodie Larcombe, 21, on or about 27 December 1987 at an unknown place in New South Wales. Justice Bruce James said that it was a crime in the worst category and sentenced Suckling to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
