Minutes after Tony Mokbel was brutally stabbed in a prison yard with improvised weapons, one attacker told the other 'happy birthday bro.' Teira Bennett and Eldea Teuira were 21 when they launched the 'frenzied' attack on the convicted drug lord after a birthday party at Barwon Prison in February 2019. 'It sounds like they were making a statement,' Victorian County Court Judge Liz Gaynor said about the attack. 'It's clearly arising from the newspaper articles ... this is a sort of marking of territory, a marking of status,' she said. The attack came the day after a front-page article called Mokbel a 'prison big wig' and a 'top enforcer' who disrupted an extortion racket run by Pacific Islanders in the prison. Graphic footage aired in court on Friday showed the pair waiting for Mokbel before they launched their attack and accused him of talking to prison officers.

He was 71: unhappy, a little underweight, addicted to drugs and alcohol and paranoid sometimes to the point of delirium. According to the coroner's report, he'd choked on the bell-shaped plastic cap of a bottle of eyedrops, which he was in the habit of placing on or under his tongue while he administered to his vision. The next day, the New York Times ran an obituary claiming him as "the most important American playwright after Eugene O'Neill", though it had been two decades since his last successful play. It listed his three Pulitzer prizes, for A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Night of the Iguana, adding: "He wrote with deep sympathy and expansive humour about outcasts in our society. Though his images were often violent, he was a poet of the human heart." He was also a … [Read more...] about What drives writers to drink?
