There are five sides to the story of a murder that shocked Sydney.

But one side in particular was barely a “footnote” when Harriet Wran – the daughter of former NSW premier Neville Wran – had her murder charge dropped and she pleaded guilty to two lesser charges last week.

Friends of murdered Redfern man Daniel McNulty, 48, have not tried to sugar coat his chequered past but also want the general public to know he was once a person.

And, like Harriet Wran, his life was destroyed by his addiction to ice.

McNulty’s life ended when Wran, 28 and two other men, Michael Lee, 36, and Lloyd Haines, 31,  knocked on his door, with the intention of robbing him of ice in August, 2014.

He was fatally stabbed and his flatmate Brett Fitzgerald was badly injured.

In June, just before their joint trial was due to begin, Lee and Haines pleaded guilty to murder.

On Wednesday last week, prosecutors dropped the murder charge against Wran, and she instead pleaded guilty to robbery in company and accessory after the fact to murder.

When he died, McNulty was a small-time drug dealer and ice addict living in a housing commission block on Walker Street in Redfern.

But a close friend has told Fairfax Media he was also a university graduate, an accomplished musician and film maker.

“[He] had struggled with a drug problem just like Wran. In fact, he moved in many of the same inner-city eastern suburbs social circles as she did before they both struggled with drugs. They were not that different,” a friend, who only wanted to be named as Michelle, said.

Michelle said she and her friend “Dan” studied a communications degree at The University of Technology, Sydney.

“Daniel was very, very popular in our year – everyone liked him – he was charismatic, warm, hilariously funny in a very deadpan way, very intelligent, and really just cool,” she said.

“He was so cool. One of my favourite people ever.”

Another friend has previously said McNulty was also a father, a keen fisherman and a talented musician.

“Daniel was a funny, talented and gifted musician who had an on going battle with addiction,” one friend said at the time of his death.

But Michelle said the last time she saw McNulty, he was “pretty bad”.

“I saw him again not long back and realised just how bad he was and emailed a lot of our friends asking what could we do, but the consensus seemed to be that Dan had to make that decision himself to get better first,” she said.

“Dan had terrible problems but he was a great guy who was much loved and as has been said before – didn’t deserve to be a footnote in a celebrity murder trial.”

Wran, Lee and Haines have been in custody since their arrest in August 2014.

The agreed set of facts explains that Wran was an accessory to murder because she “maintained and harboured Lee, believing him to be involved in the stabbing, first at the house of her friend Hobbs, and thereafter remained in his company in private and public”.

Wran is expected to appear before court for a sentencing hearing next Thursday.
