Gail Maney was sent to prison on her son's birthday. The police said she'd put a hit on a man who stole drugs from her. She went to jail for 15 years.
She's consistently denied having anything to do with the disappearance of Deane Fuller-Sandys. In fact, she says, she never even met him. She isn't sure he was murdered at all. She thinks he'd just ... gone fishing.
In this eight-part series, Amy Maas and Adam Dudding investigate the case against Maney. They unravel the conflicting and shifting accounts of key witnesses. They expose major flaws in the police timeline. And they raise disturbing questions about police conduct in the case.

Goes to the depths of NZ’s underbelly

A very well produced journey into the dark side of 1980-90s NZ society. An interesting anthropological look into the depths the majority of us would never go, as well as being a well researched true crime podcast.

There are many complaints in these reviews about the music - I love the rock riffs. They set the scene and adhere to Westie culture.

Well done! A great piece of work.

Riveting!

Fantastic podcast.

Biased, apathetic & sensationalised

This may be a very exciting story and possibly one of a wrongful conviction yet the way this story was portrayed is hugely insensitive to parties of the deceased, ignores and downplays massive domestic abuse issues and sensationalises a terrible story of brutal murder in the hopes of achieving entertainment for the mass (and basic) public. There is no tact or empathy in the story telling, of which is massively long winded and generally uninteresting. I am mad that this story has in every possible way removed the story of the victims and their suffering, minimising their pain, fear and massive injustice. In your aim to prove Gails innocence, you have lost your ability to tell a story with heart and empathy in tact.
