    Shortcut: How Did Louisa Ioannidis Die?

    Shortcut: How Did Louisa Ioannidis Die?

    This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed.
    The 2011 death of Louisa Ioannidis was deemed as not suspicious according to the investigating police at the time.
    That simply didn't make sense to those who knew her. Including her big brother, Tass who contacted the private investigator, Julie Robson, asking for help in seeking an inquest.
    Julie joins us on Australian True Crime to discuss the results of her Investigative Podcast around Louisa's death, "Troubled Waters".
    Julia's podcasts "Chasing Charlie" and Troubled Waters" are available wherever you get your podcasts.

    Shortcut: The Future of Victim Identification

    Shortcut: The Future of Victim Identification

    This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed.
    Professor Richard Bassed is the Deputy Director at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and the Head of the Department of Forensic Medicine at Monash University.
    I had the opportunity to interview Richard for my book "CSI Told You Lies" about his work in identifying victims in mass casualty events, such as the Black Saturday Bushfires and the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.
    Currently, Richard is deeply invested in researching and utilising AI technology, as it has the potential to make a significant difference in the speed and cost of victim identification.

Louisa’s case

Thanks for covering Louisa’s case. There’s clearly more to her death and it needs to be reopened. It’s an excellent podcast but was good to hear some other things

Cjaag ,

Appreciate the acknowledgment

I appreciate this podcast, the work that goes in by the producers and creators. I also appreciate the acknowledgement of country. Thank you 🙏🏼

Meshel and Emily keep me sane by taking me to the depths of the almost insane. I love the commentary and the active listening by the hosts to their guests. Thank you Meshel and Emily
