Summary
  • Unusual piece of evidence. Kelpie-sized dog with black coat on body and fawn-coloured legs and face. Mounted on timber and encased in glass. Named 'Peter'. On 22 May 1952, Athol Henry McCowan was murdered in his taxi-cab after 11pm. The blood stained taxi was discovered on The Esplanade at Southport the following morning. The body was discovered on 30 May 1952 washed up on Cribb Island. Police later arrested Arthur Ernest Halliday who denied being in Southport at the time. Police were able to place Halliday in Southport through key eye witnesses who identified Halliday, his truck and his dog 'Peter'. 'Peter' died prior to the trial and was mounted at the Queensland Museum to be used as an exhibit in the trial. Halliday was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment at Boggo Road Gaol.
