Senior Constable Brett Forte was a hero police officer who lived to serve his community in Queensland's Lockyer Valley, and tragically died protecting it.
Brett was lured to his death last month by crazed gunman, Rick Maddison, who was already wanted over a series of vicious assaults on his ex-girlfriend.
In a violent ambush, Brett was gunned down. His last moments were spent trying to protect his colleague, Cathy, from the gunfire.
For the first time, ‘Mad Dog’ Maddison’s former partner reveals what triggered the deadly rampage.
