The bizarre history of 85 mugga way, Red Hill Mugga Way in the toney Canberra suburb of Red Hill is sometimes referred to as the Golden Mile. In 2012, the home was owned by wealthy property investor Luigi Costa, and was the 69-year-old’s pride and joy. By the later admission of Terrence Freebody’s wife, Lennis, Mugga Way was not the kind of community where one knew one’s neighbours well. No one can know, either, what possessed Costa in the midst of murdering Terrence Freebody, to dial triple-0 and claim he had been attacked in his home. As Costa asked police to come to his aid, Freebody could be heard in the background moaning.
