When his friend’s girlfriend rebuffed his advances, a jealous teenager turned his infatuation into a deadly obsession. 18-year-old Jason Downie broke into the home of Chantelle Rowe and when her parents caught him, he commenced a merciless attack. Downie admitted stabbing Chantelle more than 33 times, her father Andrew at least 29 times and her mother Rose more than 50 times. Police would never have guessed that this scrawny, non-descript, buck-eared guy was capable of causing the bloodbath on Harriet Street in the sleepy town of Kapunda.
