The big event of late 2003, and the subject of much speculation over the nation's coffee cups, was the murder of Geoff Greenlaw by an unseen assailent.
Geoff was hit on the head and dragged into the Dog's Day Inn chiller where he froze to death. Geoff's boyfriend, nasty Jeremy Bowden was arrested, but charges were eventually dropped.
As new clues surfaced in the hunt for the Shortland Street killer, it became increasingly clear that Dominic Warner and Victor Kahu both had something to hide. Geoff's murder remains unsolved -- for now.
