Early life[edit]

Griffiths and his sister Wendy were abandoned by their parents when he was six months old and she was 18 months. They were left with their mother’s 74-year-old neighbour, who abused them before welfare officers rescued them.[1][17][18][19] Due to his unusual childhood, he does not have a birth certificate, but believes he was born in early 1966.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Griffiths lives in Melbourne, Victoria.
