On a public holiday morning in 1989 he was assassinated outside his home in Troyeville, shot at close range with a shotgun. Six months later the chief suspect in the killing, Ferdi Barnard was himself detained under the internal security act. He was released for lack of evidence. A year after the killing the Harms Commission failed to get to the bottom of Webster’s killing. At least two other Commissions also failed. At the inquest into the murder two and a half years after the fact, Barnard was again the chief suspect. But the judge, unable to negotiate his way through the morass of lies and intimidated witnesses, effectively let Barnard off.

Notes: Ferdi Barnard; Harms Commission
