VAMPIRE INQUIRY ALIVE – Saturday July 6 2013

– The man accused of killing Shane Chartres-Abbott has faced court, 10 years after the self-proclaimed vampire gigolo was gunned down.
Mark Adrian Perry, 45, appeared at the Melbourne Magistrates Court yesterday charged with the 28-year-old’s murder.
And police say more arrests could still be made.
Dressed in a blue windcheater and tracksuit pants, a dishevelled Mr Perry, with a long beard and long hair, sat cross-armed, flanked by two security guards.
He glanced briefly at his brother and two sisters, but did not appear to try to communicate with them.
Mr Perry, who had a $1 million price on his head, was sensationally arrested in Perth on Tuesday.
The court head police served his lawyers with an electronic brief of evidence yesterday. Rob Melasecca, for Mr Perry, said it would take some time to work through material believed to amount to up to seven volumes.
Outside court, Mr Melasecca said he had not had a chance to speak in detail with his client and could not comment on his condition.
Mr Perry was last seen in Queensland in September 2007, and in 2009 police said he had lived in places including Queensland, Western Australia and Thailand since learning he was wanted for questioning.
Mr Melasecca said he couldn’t say whether Mr Perry had been trying to evade authorities. “I don’t know if he was on the run or not…I don’t know anything about that.”
Chartres-Abbott, a male prostitute, was on trial for raping a client and biting off part of her tongue when he was gunned down by two men as he left his Reservoir home for court on June 4th, 2003.
His horrified girlfriend watched as the killers shot the 28-year-old in the neck, then bashed her father.
A week earlier, a court had heard bizarre claims that Chartres-Abbott had told a client and occasional lover he was a 200-year-old vampire who drank blood to survive.
He was accused of attacking and raping the woman, 30, after they arranged to meet at a South Yarra hotel.
Detective Inspector Dale Flynn said outside court yesterday that more arrests could still be made over Chartres-Abbott’s murder.
Mr Perry was remanded to reappear at court on August 16th for a committal mention hearing – 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.
