Reptiles killed Aubrey Broughill...but which ones?

It takes balls to become Australia's oldest stick-up man. In a 60-year criminal career Aubrey 'Grandpa Harry' Broughill had what it took, right to the end. But when his bloated body was found in a flooded quarry, his testicles were missing.

Turtles were blamed - but there are doubts.

Police know Broughill was the victim of cold-blooded predators. But was it the eastern snake-necked turtle - or something lower?

This is really Australia's underbelly.
