Excerpt from the Gillian Armstrong docu-drama Unfolding Florence: The Many Lives of Florence Broadhurst (2005). 

Florence Broadhurst was a flamboyant Australian artist and designer who had an office and workshop in Sydney's eastern suburbs where she produced high-end, designer wallpapers.

In October 1977, Broadhurst was found brutally murdered at her premises in Paddington and her killer has never been found.

In this clip from the documentary, Broadhurst's son, along with close friends and colleagues, speculate over why Florence may have been murdered. They all agree that she must have known her killer and that he or she was familiar with the premises, and that the motive was most likely financial.
