118 - Motivated To Death and Dino the Sunshine Boy
Motivated To Death and Dino the Sunshine Boy...
In 2009, motivational speaker and self-help author Jeffrey Locker was stabbed to death in his car in East Harlem. What initially seemed to be a robbery gone wrong turned out to be something far more complicated.
Dino “The Sunshine Boy” Dibra was a violent thug by the age of 12, jailed by 19, a ruthless multiple killer at 23 and murdered by 25. He was described by his family as having a heart of gold. But others saw him as murderer, standover man, drug dealer and kidnapper who wreaked havoc with the likes of Melbourne underworld figures Andrew "Benji" Venimen, Mark Mallia, Paul Kallipolitis and Carl Williams.
