In the six years before Ms Gazzard's death, Maslin was arrested 23 times for a variety of offences, including domestic violence, criminal damage, possession of Class A drugs and theft.
He was also involved in 24 violent incidents - three involving Ms Gazzard, 12 involving one former partner, two involving another ex, three involving his mother and four against other unconnected people.
Police apologised after a homicide review revealed that numerous agencies knew about his violent history but didn't share information.And would it have made the slightest bit of difference if they had? Because I think the answer's 'No'...
Many of his victims routinely refused to support action against him and this may have masked the number and the seriousness of his harassment, threats and violence towards them.As long as some women are attracted to these types, like moths to an open flame, this will go on and on and on.
