Victor Peirce, Melbourne criminal (1958-2002)

Victor Peirce, Melbourne criminal (1958-2002)

Victor Peirce (1958-2002) was a Melbourne criminal and member of the notorious Pettingill family, headed by matriarch and brothel owner, Kath Pettingill. He was a key figure of the Melbourne underworld, and both an accomplice and rival of some of Melbourne's worst criminals.

Peirce was shot dead in a parked car in Port Melbourne in May 2002. Three years later, his wife, Wendy Peirce, detailed how he had planned and executed the 1988 Walsh Street shootings of two police officers. He and three accomplices had been charged with the shootings but had been acquitted by a jury after Wendy Peirce gave false evidence in court. Wendy Peirce would later spend 18 months in protective custody after making the revelations that jeopardised the three surviving accomplices.
