Gold Coast ‘body in a barrel’ murderer bashed in prison

The man accused of murdering a teenage girl and dumping her body on the Gold Coast has been savagely beaten in prison.

Zlatko Sikorsky was reportedly attacked in Wolston Correctional Centre, and is now fighting for life in hospital.

He was awaiting trial for the alleged murder of 16-year-old Larissa Beilby, whose body was found stuffed inside a barrel on the back of a ute in Stapylton back in 2018.


Sikorsky was due to stand trial charged with murder, torture, deprivation of liberty and interfering with a corpse.

Queensland Corrective Services confirmed that a prisoner suffered suspected head injuries and was rushed to hospital, after an incident involving another prisoner.

He’s now in a critical condition at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
