Exclusive interview with the ‘Samurai Killers’ Blake Davis and Hannah Quinn – This weekend on 60 MINUTES

As unwelcome as it always is, the act of crime is relatively straightforward to understand.

There are villains and there are victims.

But this Sunday on 60 MINUTES, Tara Brown reports on an intriguing case where the roles have been blurred. The intended targets of the offence have become the criminals, while the original instigator of the crime is a casualty.

The terrible events unfolded one day two and half years ago when rap artist Jett McKee stormed the home of Blake Davis and Hannah Quinn. He was heavily armed, high on ice, and hellbent on robbing the couple.

But in the chaos of the violent attack, Blake Davis managed to get the upper hand, and armed with an ornamental samurai sword he owned, killed Jett McKee.  Davis says he had no choice, and that if he hadn’t used the sword, McKee would have killed Hannah.

It’s what happened in the aftermath of the killing though that’s even more confounding.  Instead of waiting for police, the couple fled the scene and went on the run for three days before handing themselves in.

The outcome of this case saw Blake and Hannah charged and convicted of serious crimes, but in their first and only interview, they want Australia to know their side of this complicated and tragic tale.

  1. I have to say that nobody really know how you would reacted to such a confrontation.
    A man with gun coming into your home, then seeing your boyfriend hit by the gunman.
    Then on the road to see your girlfriend with gun man holding at her.
    May be Humans go back to a Primitive state we’re to kill the prey for protection under extreme
    circumstances, then fear , confusion , state of shock would have to come afterwards I am sure.

    I believe they should not be prosecuted as murders , they had No plan of Killing anyone .
    Circumstances have caused this Horrible out come. Why is the victim blamed the Law should Change………
