Eddie’s Country

Simon Luckhurst

Following Eddie Murray’s death in a police cell in the NSW town of Wee Waa in 1981, his parents, Arthur and Leila Murray, fought for over twenty years to have his death properly investigated. Simon Luckhurst chronicles the official inquiries and their experience of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, as well as Arthur Murray's involvement in the 1987 Brewarrina riot. A testament to the Murray family’s courage, Eddie’s Country reveals the shocking discovery made after they had to make one of the most difficult decisions of their lives; to have Eddie's remains exhumed.
