– Australia’s most wanted fugitive may be working as a fruit picker on the Victoria-NSW border.
Graham Gene Potter, 55, who has been in the run for three years, is facing charges of conspiracy to murder and is also wanted over a syndicate’s attempts to import a record haul of drugs through Melbourne’s docks.
The conspiracy case involves a plot to kill a well-known underworld identity, who can’t be named for legal reasons. There were plans to strike at Mick Gatto’s son’s wedding in March 2008, after a kickboxing tournament the night before the wedding, and at the Reggio Calabria Club in Parkville three months later.
Potter has been in the run since he failed to answer bail in the conspiracy case at Melbourne Magistrates Court on February 1st, 2010.
Police opposed bail being granted the previous May.
But it is understood Potter had been cooperating with federal authorities in the drug case.
Several months ago Purana Taskforce detectives received information that Potter might be staying in the Riverina area.
He was spotted by police in Tully, south of Cairns, last August 28th. Potter ran and a search recovered camping gear at a caravan park where he had been staying for about six weeks.
He had grown a beard and donned a fat suit while a fugitive in Queensland.
There have been numerous sightings and CCTV taken of a man suspected to be Potter.
Detective Superintendent Gerry Ryan said there had been unconfirmed sightings in Tocumwal, NSW, and Cobram areas.
In 1980 Potter murdered Wollongong teen Kim Barry and cut off her head and fingers. He became trusted by underworld figures during 16 years in jail.
Police say he uses aliases that include Josh Lawson, John Page, Jim Henderson and Peter Adams.
A $100,000 reward was offered in 2011 for information leading to his capture – Anthony Dowsley & Mark Buttler


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.
