He said Murdochs 28-year non-parole period was upheld at appeal because no substantial miscarriage of justice had occurred. Murdoch was arrested in November 2003 in relation to Falconios disappearance, after a jury in South Australia acquitted him of raping and falsely impris oning a 12-year-old girl. There were several simil arities between the two cases, including the use of cable ties. DNA matching Murdochs profile was found on the make-shift handcuffs worn by Ms Lees, as well as on her T-shirt. Experts said the chance of the DNA donor being someone other than Murdoch was less than one in 13,000. The orange Kombi was located by police about 100 metres off the highway.
