Barwon Prison's maximum security unit, 19 April 2010: Carl Williams is beaten to death with the stem of an exercise bike by a fellow inmate, while guards sit in the next room. And so, the last moments of this convicted contract killer and key figure in the Melbourne underworld echoed the rest of his life: violent, chilling, brutal.
A photo that became a key part of the defence of Mick Gatto in court shows the gun which was fired in a scuffle which ended in the death of Veniamin. The numbers mark the order the bullets were fired, the un-numbered bullet was a missfire. Photo: Craig Sillitoe
