QUIZ FOR KILLERS – Wednesday February 27 2013

– The sadistic killer of a young hairdresser will today be quizzed by police investigating whether he tried to pressure a witness in another murder case.

David Patrick Clifford is serving 23 years for murdering Elsa Corp, 26, while he was on parole.

He bashed, stabbed and strangled her in a South Melbourne hotel room in February 2010.

Police yesterday asked a magistrate for an order allowing them to interview Clifford and another prisoner, Ngoc Bui.

Bui is seeking leave to appeal to the High Court against his conviction and 25 1/2 year sentence for the 2006 murder of a small-time drug trafficker.

Michael Daou was kidnapped, tortured, and shot twice in the head, and his body was then burned.

Detective Senior Constable Scott Riley told the Melbourne Magistrates Court yesterday that a letter to a key witness in Bui’s case had been found inside Clifford’s cell at Port Phillip Prison.

The court heard police believe the handwriting in the letter matches Bui’s, and that the letter contained information only Bui would know.

Senior Detective Riley said the letter asked the witness, who can’t be identified, to change his evidence.

The court heard Bui had asked Clifford to send the letter to the witness.

Bui’s special leave application to the High Court is due to be heard next month.

Magistrate Simon Garnett approved the police application, which allows detectives to interview both Clifford and Bui for two hours today – Shannon Deery

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
