Ned Kelly's armour on display in the State Library of Victoria
The apron and one shoulderplate are not Ned's and comes from either Dan Kelly's or Steve Hart's armour.

Six Year Hunt For Oz Fugitive Nearing End
By Jonathan Samuels, Australia correspondent | Sky News


Six Year Hunt For Oz Fugitive Nearing End

Police in Australia believe they are closing in on a fugitive accused of murder who has been on the run since 2005.

Malcolm Naden is understood to be living in dense countryside in the state of New South Wales and has been outwitting the police for more than 6 years.

The experienced bushman is believed to have been living off the land, constantly on the move, and setting up campsites in hard to reach areas.

Malcolm Naden disappeared in June 2005 from his grandparents' home, days before a 24-year-old mother-of-two was found strangled in his bedroom.

He is also wanted over the indecent assault of a 15-year-old girl and for questioning over the disappearance of another 24-year-old woman.

Police thought they had cornered their suspect earlier this week when they descended on a camp near Nowendoc in northern New South Wales, but a man believed to be Naden opened fire and shot a policeman before disappearing into the forest.

Forensic experts have now finished examining fingerprints found at the campsite.

"I can confirm today that he has been at that crime scene. We have found a fingerprint which we have identified," said Assistant Commissioner Carlene York.

It was the seventh failed operation to catch him and police have more than doubled the reward for his capture to \$250,000 (£160,000).

Naden previously worked as a shearer, and skinner and boner in an abattoir and has been described as a "master bushman" with an intimate knowledge of the rugged terrain in which he is hiding.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper, before he disappeared he lived behind a locked bedroom door where he read the Bible, encyclopaedias and survival manuals.

Other reports said he often sets up crude but sturdy camps on hilltops, giving him the widest possible field of vision, and survives on whatever the bush provides while breaking into remote homes to steal weapons and supplies.

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said: "We are hot on his trail.

"But at the end of the day you need everything going for you, not just a few things."

Bad weather has made the manhunt difficult, with helicopters used in the search unable to fly. Now the number of police searching for Naden has been increased. Police have warned members of the public not to approach him.

"This is really not a man that you want to entertain in your house," Andrew Scipione said. "He's on the run. He's armed. He's dangerous."
