Alisha Bland, former girlfriend of the driver’s half-brother George, told news.com.au the family “didn’t accept her because she wasn’t Greek.”

Ms Bland, 30, said Gargasoulas’s mother Emily would ‘get on the phone telling her to leave George alone.’

She said the boys’ father Chris told her over the phone, “You’re nothing but an Aussie sl*t, and Aussies are for a good time not a long time”, and that the driver’s mother Emily would “get on the phone telling me to leave George alone”.

Ms Bland, 30, added: “They even accused me of trying to get pregnant to steal his inheritance.”

She “couldn’t believe it” when she heard Gargasoulas had allegedly mowed down pedestrians in Melbourne’s CBD on Friday, killing five people, including two children, and injuring 15.

She used to speak to him on the phone when he was a teenager living in Coober Pedy, South Australia, and she was dating his older half-brother George.

Ms Bland said she did not believe Gargasoulas’s alleged actions were related to extremism, and the family had nothing to do with radical Islam. Police have also ruled out a terrorism connection.

“From what I know Dimitri started believing he was God and started rambling about Islam,” she said.

She said Gargasoulas, his brother Angelo and their mother Emily moved to Melbourne a few years ago to support the kids’ half-brother George after his mother died. The family home in Coober Pedy burned down 10 years ago and was replaced with a makeshift house made from a car port. Locals said the 26-year-old would often visit and was last in town with girlfriend Akiir Muo, staying for a few months before leaving late last year. Strange cars would often pull up at their home at all hours of the night, stay briefly and then take off.

The 26-year-old driver allegedly stabbed Angelo at their mother’s public housing apartment before he headed out on his alleged rampage, with his 25-year-old pregnant girlfriend Ms Muo allegedly held hostage.

“I’d presume once he left Coober Pedy to Melbourne he probably mixed with the wrong crowd, he stabbed his brother because Angelo is gay,” said Ms Bland. “Dimitri was very homophobic.

“Dimitri’s girlfriend is five months’ pregnant with his fourth or fifth child.

“Apparently he stopped seeing his kids.”

The couple had only been dating about five months. Gargasoulas posted a series of homophobic and semi-religious rants on his Facebook page, which has now been removed.

The accounts of his mother Emily, brother Angelo and half-brother George have also been removed from the social network. According to Ms Bland, Emily only had photos of Angelo, none of Dimitrious.

Ms Bland last spoke to George on Monday over Facebook and said she was worried about how he is coping and is desperately trying to get in touch with him.

When Justice Elizabeth Fullerton and Robert Xie saw each other, it was usually when the judge was sitting at the grand, elevated bench, and he was below her in the dock.

So it must have come as quite a surprise when Justice Fullerton saw Xie walking along Elizabeth Street during an adjournment in the final weeks of his murder trial.

Justice Fullerton raised the sighting in court and the defence explained that Xie had become locked in the downstairs hallways while going to the toilet, and had to take the Elizabeth Street exit.

The judge accepted the explanation.

The dark, labyrinth-like corridor below the courts in the historic King Street complex is painted in public hospital pastels.

It leads to toilets, mediation rooms and old cells with imposing metal bars, then to court number 5 and out onto Elizabeth Street, across from the shiny facade of David Jones department store.

Xie was on bail during the course of his trial, and while his being on the street in court hours was perhaps unusual, it was not in breach of his conditions.

It is standard practice for accused people on bail to use abundant caution and stay within the court building during a trial so they don’t come into contact with anyone involved in the proceedings.

Xie’s bail was revoked on December 22 in a decision unrelated to the incident, but in anticipation of the jury retiring to consider its verdict.

When the trial resumed after Christmas for the end of the judge’s summary, defence barrister Robert Webb asked for Xie to have access to fresh fruit and vegetables.

Mr Webb produced a medical certificate and said the prison diet was aggravating a possible stomach ulcer.

Though Xie was charged with five murders, he was granted bail in late 2015, after the jury in his third trial could not reach a verdict.

Justice Fullerton noted that being in custody for more than 4½ years without a conviction had taken a heavy toll on Xie’s mental wellbeing.

“For an accused person to remain in custody for five years or more is impossible to view as fair and commensurate with a fair and just criminal process,” she said at the time.

Xie was found guilty of five counts of murder in the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday.

Former Siberian policeman Mikhail Popkov, who is already serving a life sentence for the murders of 22 women, has confessed to killing 59 more, police told the Siberian Times.

Nicknamed the “werewolf” of Siberia for the brutality of his methods – he raped women and then killed them with axes, knives or screwdrivers – Mikhail Popkov carried out his bloody rampage between 1992 and 2010 in the Angarsk and Irkutsk regions of Siberia, the paper reported. According to the state news agency Tass, he resigned as a police officer in 1998.

When he was first detained in 2012, the Siberian Times said, he told police his goal was to “cleanse” the streets of prostitutes.

According to Tass, the investigation began when women kept disappearing from public places in Angarsk in the mid-1990s, at the time Popkov was a police officer. Later, authorities started finding mutilated bodies of the women around Irkutsk.

They also found tire tracks from a Niva cross-country vehicle at some of the crime scenes, which ultimately led them to Popkov.

At first he confessed to three murders.

But as police investigated, and as he began talking, the number rose to the 22 for which he was convicted and sentenced in January 2015.

Irkutsk police spokeswoman Karina Golovacheva has told the Siberian Times that Popkov has now confessed to 59 new slayings. “That means, if we add them to the earlier 22, it will be 81 murders in total.” Of the 59 cases, 47 have produced charges. “We are quite sure about the 12 other cases,” Golovacheva told the paper, and “in the nearest future we can bring charges” in the 12 others.

The victims have ranged in age from 17 to 38.

Popkov, according to earlier reports of the case, started his spree when he was a policeman, offering women rides in his police car and then taking them to remote locations and raping and killing them.

After laborious probes, police have found body after body in the places where Popkov told them they were hidden.

The Siberian Times speculated that he was confessing gradually to the killings rather than all at once in hopes of delaying his transfer from a detention prison to a penal colony.

If authorities ultimately confirm 81 as the number of Popkov’s victims, that would make him one of the most prolific serial killers of all time, behind Colombia’s Luis Garavito, a child-killer nicknamed “The Beast” who claimed at least 138 lives in the 1990s, and Pedro Lopez (“The Monster of the Andes”) with 110 proven victims in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru between 1969 and 1980.
