Oh, I see. They have the capacity to go after someone who raped a girl in 1998, but we can't get Glenn Beck for raping and murdering a young girl in 1990?  Geez, our justice system really is broken.

16 is the age of consent in most of Australia (and NZ, incidentally, unless you're a teacher bonking a student, in which case it's 18)

Mr Potato Head was my first goto as well. But, alas, he's from Queensland so he's probably not in the running for this one.

It happened in Sydney, according to this; the victim was South Australian, and committed suicide in SA recently enough for the SA coronor to still be investigating the matter.

What a farking tragedy.
