    Introducing – Who Killed Bob?

    Introducing – Who Killed Bob?

    Why was mild-mannered, middle aged Sue Neill-Fraser convicted of murdering her partner Bob Chappell on their yacht in January 2009? It was a circumstantial case – no body, no witnesses, no weapon and no confession. Sue has always maintained her innocence and is now in her 13th year of a 23 year sentence in a Tasmanian prison.

    Psychologist and film producer Eve Ash jumped in at the deep end and has meticulously dissected this case for 12 years in a search for the truth. When Eve was joined by former homicide task force detective Colin McLaren the twists and turns became frightening. For everyone who believes in justice, this podcast will be a shocking eye-opener about a case destined to be Australia’s worst wrongful conviction.

    Launches on Spotify subscription from November 22nd, 2021

Background music can overwhelm audio

I think it’s a little over dramatised. Unnecessarily so as the story carries itself without making it a “story”.

Could have been better

A fascinating story but this podcast delves far too far into the speculative. Most of the so called evidence uncovered by ‘Bear’ is flimsy at best. I’m also concerned that the obviously vulnerable sister is being given false hopes that the perpetrator(s) could be uncovered through Bear’s private investigations. The suggestion that the police may be complicit may have been relevant at the time but policing has changed considerably over the years and I find it hard to believe they are still protecting a couple of crooked cops a generation later. I listened to this whole podcast in the hope it would improve. It didn’t.

The Reel Noiresque ,

Moving

A tragic mystery, with little hope of resolution.
Often repetitive, and the production is patchy. The music is often far too loud , obtrusive and needlessly emotional. Volume levels are all over the place, and at times the host sounds as if he has a blocked nose, and/or needs to clear his throat.
Nevertheless, an important story.
