FrankTALK: Vikki Petraitis - History Month

Next date: Friday, 07 October 2022 | 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM

Frank Talk - Vikki Pertaitis

Join us for a FrankTALK to welcome back award winning author Vikki Petraitis, to celebrate History Month, with her presentation about the Frankston Murders, as we near the 30 year anniversary.


Event Description

Like everyone who lived around Frankston in 1993, true crime author Vikki Petraitis experienced the seven weeks of fear when the Frankston serial killer killed Elizabeth Stevens, Debbie Fream and Natalie Russell. Vikki was writing stories about the Frankston police and ended up in the back of a police car at one of the crime scenes. That was the night she decided to write her book, The Frankston Murders.

For almost 30 years, Vikki has followed the story and has done her best to ensure people remembered the women who were taken. The ripple effect of the murders and the shadow the crimes cast over Frankston are a dark part of Frankston's history, but one that can never be forgotten.

Join Vikki as she presents the case with all the latest updates on efforts to keep the Frankston serial killer in prison forever. Vikki contributes to most major True Crime podcasts, is a regular speaker on the crime circuit, and has written several published true crime books.

Please join us for a FrankTALK on Friday 7th October at 7pm at Cube 37, 37 Davey St, Frankston. This event is free, but bookings are essential.
