The notorious Porsche driver who shot four police officers dead on the side of the road remains on the run from police – but has actually attended a court hearing.
Richard Pusey (45), who uses they/them pronouns, has been at large since November after two warrants were issued for breaching court orders.
However, he joined a hearing in the Supreme Court of Victoria via video chat on Wednesday morning as he appeals a conviction stemming from late 2022.
Pusey was found guilty of used a transport service to offend and sentenced to 10 months in prison for shipping graphic photos of dying police officers to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority after his insurance company refused to indemnify his 2016 Porsche 911 in the wake of the 2020 Eastern Freeway truck crash.
When the court asked him to turn on his camera so they could see him on Wednesday, Pusey refused to do so.

Pusey then apologized to the court for the incorrect filing of paperwork relating to his appeal.
Court registrar Martin Keith told Pusey he had sent documents to the district court instead of the magistrates’ court as he should have.
“Ah, is that the wrong one, sir? I did request … a hearing to make sure everything is on file that is correct, so we don’t waste time here today,’ Pusey said. According to the Herald Sun.
‘But what would I know? I’m just a dumb dumb.
‘I apologize for being born. Can I now go find medication and a glass braai and get my head straight?’
Pusey added that he could amend the paperwork for the court within two weeks.
In April 2020, the former mortgage broker was pulled over by police for speeding on Melbourne’s Eastern Freeway.
Moments later, a lorry driven by a Mohinder Singh, who was high on drugs, crashed into his Porsche, killing Senior Constables Lynette Taylor and Kevin King and Constables Glen Humphris and Josh Prestney.
Pusey, who was urinating by the side of the road at the time, survived.
When Pusey returned to his car, he filmed the officers lying dead and dying on the road before fleeing the scene.
He was sentenced to 10 months in prison and the presiding judge called him ‘probably the most hated man in Australia’.

Victorian Police appealed to the public to come forward with any information on Pusey’s whereabouts.
Pusey is white, about 190 cm tall, has short brown hair and this apparently changes their appearance.
In early November, police released two images showing examples of Pusey’s different appearances.
In one image, Pusey walks through a train station with a short bowl cut of graying dark hair while wearing sunglasses.
The other shows shoulder length dark hair brushed back.
Police believe Pusey uses a combination of public transportation and driving to move around the state.
Pusey’s is a regular uploader to social media but hasn’t posted since October 17th.
