This is the story of a mass-murder that divided a nation - a story that began in a rickety old home on a cold June morning in 1994, where five members of a seemingly ordinary New Zealand family were gunned down. There were two suspects. One lay dead from a single bullet to the head. The other was the only survivor: David Bain. Since then the country has asked: who killed the Bain family? David or his father Robin? In this podcast, Martin van Beynen explores the case from start to finish, picking through evidence, the mysteries and motives, and interviewing never-before-spoken-to witnesses. He seeks to finally answer the question: Who was the killer?

Wow

Extremely well put together. That 111 phone call makes me so mad. David Baine is 100% guilty in my eyes and I can’t comprehend how anyone can think he is innocent. He’s a calculated, manipulative, murderer.

Is he really out

I think I know what he was doing in the missing twenty minutes.
He was coldly and systematically murdering his family.

Listen n learn

This is beyond excellent it’s a incredible criminal investigation. So many facts and deep knowledge! Only one thing, I was disappointed that in the last minute of the podcast you gave David a open door. He doesn’t deserve that and when it comes down to it he will act again. He’s a killer and will kill again, that’s what he knows. Born and ChCh is like to know he’s being kept an eye on! Thanks for a great podcast!
