Legendary Homicide Detective


Gary Jubelin was one of Australia’s most celebrated detectives. He joined the NSW Police Force in 1985 and retired in 2019 as a Detective Chief Inspector.

During his 34-year policing career he led some of the country’s biggest murder investigations including the serial killing of three Aboriginal children in Bowraville. The brutal gangland murder of Terry Falconer and seven other murders, which was featured in the Underbelly Television Series ‘Badness’. He also ran the crime scene following the Lindt Café Siege.

He was leading the investigation into the abduction of 3-year-old William Tyrrell when he was controversially removed and charged by his own organisation for recording a conversation with a suspect in the Tyrrell investigation. This is something he makes no apologies for other than the impact it had on the investigation due to his forced removal.

His vast experience as a detective in major crime includes performing duties in the Armed Hold Up Squad, Organised Crime Squad and Gangs Squad.

He also was heavily involved in tactical policing performing duties in the Tactical Response Group, State Protection Support Unit and Close Personal Protection.

Since leaving the police, he has been employed as an investigative journalist with News Corp, writing for The Sunday Telegraph. He co-authored two top-selling No.1 True Crime Books, his memoires ‘I Catch Killers’ and ‘Badness’. He hosts one of the country’s top-rated podcasts, ‘I Catch Killers’. He contributes to television programs, including 60 Minutes and Under Investigation, for the Nine Network. He has also toured Australia with the ‘I Catch Killers Live Event’ stage show.

He is still passionate about justice for crime victims, strongly supports restorative justice, and continues to assist victims where he can in his new role.
