Minogue is suspected of giving the order for the teenager to be killed as a payback for her grandparents, Julie and Paul Hetzel, for turning against him.

Paul Hetzel was a crown witness who testified that Minogue was a single of the architects of the Russell Street bombing.

The Hetzels have been in hiding considering that Minogue’s arrest.

Although in prison, Minogue killed a fellow inmate, Alex Tsakmakis, but no further time was added to his 29-year sentence for the bombings.

The teenager’s mother, Jenny Bird, said she was sceptical of Minogue’s reformation, and nervous about the prospect he could be paroled.

“They all say they’re reformed, but I think the crime that was committed with Angela Taylor, that was just horrific,” she stated.

“He also killed once again even though he was in there, he is a suspect for Prue nevertheless, and no, I do not believe he ought to be getting out.

“I believe any person can say they are reformed, and we’ve noticed it time and time once more that men and women are released and they re-offend.”

The Victorian Government said parole decisions have been the responsibility of the parole board and its most essential consideration was neighborhood safety.

Several police who have dealt with Minogue worry that he will be created a poster boy for reform by the parole board.
