Getting away with murder

View descriptionShare

In 1993 elderly grandma Phyllis Hocking was bashed and murdered in her son’s home. The scene was left to look like it was a burglary gone wrong, but homicide investigator Charlie Bezzina wasn’t buying it. He believed the son, Philip Hocking, was most likely the suspect as he was the only beneficiary in the Will. In this episode of Naked City, Bezzina takes Silvester through the case using original audio tapes of the confession from grandson Brent Hocking. In addition, hear the uncut interview between A Current Affair’s Tara Brown and Philip, where Tara grills Philip who comes across as a cold, calculating rat.
