Killer University of Sydney student Anu Singh writing thesis on crime
By Laura Speranza From: The Sunday Telegraph December 12, 2010 11:01AM

A UNIVERSITY student who killed her boyfriend with a lethal dose of heroin is writing a PhD thesis on women who commit crimes.

Law graduate Anu Singh, 38, was convicted of manslaughter over the death of her boyfriend, Joe Cinque, in 1997.

After a dinner party at their Canberra flat, she sedated him with Rohypnol, injected him with heroin and watched as he vomited blood and died in their bed. She served four years for Mr Cinque's manslaughter.

Her research project at the University of Sydney, Offending Women - Toward A Greater Understanding Of Female Criminality, is listed on the university's website under current research projects.

Ms Singh's project is being supervised by two leading legal minds, Professor Julie Stubbs from the University of NSW and Associate Professor Gail Mason from the University of Sydney.

Neither Ms Stubbs nor Ms Mason would comment on the content of Ms Singh's project.

It is believed Ms Singh will examine her own involvement in the death of Mr Cinque in the 100,000-word thesis.

Ms Singh has previously told the media that drugging Mr Cinque then injecting him with heroin was "like doing a university assignment".

But Mr Cinque's parents, Italian immigrants Nino and Maria Cinque, said Ms Singh's research project was a desperate attempt to grab media attention.

"This is another way to put herself in the paper," Mrs Cinque said. "It's another way to make herself noticed.

"She says she wants to help people, but that is rubbish.

"She should get a job and start repaying society for all the money they spent on her."

Mrs Cinque said she would never forgive Ms Singh.

"It's been 13 years but, for me, it feels like it (her son's death) happened yesterday," she said. "Now it's Christmas and I have no son and no grandchildren.

"By this time, he would have got married to a nice girl and had a family.

"She took everything away for no reason."

Days before Mr Cinque died, Ms Singh told friends she was going to kill him and she held two send-off dinner parties.

He died on the morning after the second dinner party. She pleaded not guilty to murder.

The Sunday Telegraph repeatedly tried to contact Ms Singh to discuss her research, but she did not return calls.

Ms Singh now lives in Sydney with her parents.

This story sounds absolutely callous and my heartfelt condolences to the Cinque family,

My curiosity is the manslaughter charge - indications are the jury were not convinced for the evidence presented that Singh premeditated the murder.

she planned this murder since she told her friends she was doing it... so it was premeditated murder.
how the hell was she only charged with manslaughter?... probably done a deal with prosecutor.

She is a sociopath and desperate attention seeker. Not worthy of any media attention, unless its depicting her as the cold and brutal killer that she is.

That's the allegation, so why did the jury think it "was not" premeditated?

Read 'Joe Cinque's Consolation' by Helen Garner. It is utterly compelling and explains in great detail everything that happened ..and some.

The Cinque family have been destroyed by Anu Singh and I don't know how they managed to stay sane especially throughout the trial and the injustice of the 'manslaughter' verdict. Anu Singh plotted to kill Joe Cinque - that is premeditated. She is a truly despicable person..She is a murderer.

My heart bleeds for Joe Cinque and his family...

What a sick inhumane excuse for a human. In reality, this pathetic little person is a demon in sheeps clothing. She should be careful, not that many traveling Americans allow psycho paths like her to live long. We hate she killers here. Esp freaks who kill their own boyfriends. She will rot in hot hell.

What is your "NATIVE" country, my friend?? Sure sound italian to me Mr 2+2=22...What a great denouement of the story! If all else fails, blame it on the culture. Go read some books before you start commenting, not that I support or like the BIT*H.
Moronic people like you are a real Menace to human civilization!

I read Garners book and she obviously sided with the victims family and cast Singh as "evil" - best way to sell a story I guess. What if Singh was seriously psychologically unwell? The court thought so, hence the manslaughter charge. Singh says she wants to help people and isn't a PhD on women and crime a perfect way to do so? I think she is a remarkable women, using her experience to help other woman.I can't wait to read her PhD.

I have read the book several times and cannot fathom how she only served a few years for Joe Cinque's death...she planned two dinner party's with friends who knew what she was about to do- drugged him the first time but in his induced state, he would not keep still so she could get a vein....she was successful the second time....he had no idea. Maria and Nino Cinque have suffered two lifetimes of pain whilst this murderer was able to continue her education and live the rest of her life. Go away Anu Singh.
