    the bolded is clipped from this article already kindly posted in this thread.
    Derek Percy | Murderpedia, the encyclopedia of murderers


    One of the problems with investigating Percy was that police did not have a sample of his DNA. Police in Victoria can by law take DNA samples from anybody convicted of a crime, but Percy was never convicted, having been found not guilty by reason of insanity. This legal loophole meant that police could not take his DNA. In at least one of the murders for which Percy is a suspect, it is believed that DNA from the crime scene has been preserved.

    these kind of prisoner rights have to stop. they should have had his dna since 1970
    they have dna for wanda beach so thinking yes its derek percy
    cant wait for sunday night!

    another thought about him.
    he might not have been convicted of all these other cases he is suspected of but at least he was never free. he went to jail for killing Yvonne and was never released.

    I was looking at Christopher Wilder in relation to another murder and noticed this link. A few on the board have eluded to the Sunday Night episode so I assume that was who you were talking about.

    Wilder found with girl's help - The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 - 1995) - 17 Apr 1984 Funny it took Sunday Night 14 years to publicise something that had been looked at by police in 1984.

    "In Sydney, police have called for Mr Wilder's blood sample to compare it with that of the Wanda Beach
    murderer's."

    A couple of other articles from trove re Christopher Wilder.

    NSW man wanted - The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 - 1995) - 7 Apr 1984

    Australian murder suspect dies in scuffle with US police - The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 - 1995) - 15 Apr 1984

    Tonight's episode of Crime Investigation Australia has the Wanda Beach Murders on it so should be available on catchup if you miss it or haven't seen it before.
