It is believed that the 23-year old was heading to the home of a Finks Motorcycle Club member. That person later took his own life.

Mr Rapadas was known to associate with people involved in criminal activities and is believed to have been murdered by an associate of the Finks MC in retaliation for his ‘perceived’ role in the murder of Karim Morrison in 2004.
