Sorry for bumping an old thread, but as an Australian, I'm not surprised that rumors like this got started.

In the aftermath of Cyclone Tracy in 1974 (Wikipedia) rumors circulated that the police/armed forces had either:

1. Shot looters and dumped the bodies in the harbor.
2. Dumped victims into the harbour to reduce the official death toll.
