Grieving: Megan McAlorum’s aunt Geraldline McGoran and sister Lynn McAlorum at the young girl’s grave

The family of murdered teenager Megan McAlorum say they fear her killer Thomas Purcell, who walked free from prison this week, plans on fleeing the country to escape the conditions of his parole.

In 2004, Purcell subjected the 16-year-old to an attack so brutal that her family had to have a closed coffin.
