A report by Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper knowingly states that Wallace “has his freedom for the moment”, and that cops will “hope his heart is brave enough to call in at a police station”.

One commenter quipped that the fugitive should be “obvious wandering around in a kilt” in the cold weather of the Australian winter.
