In 2003, Kathleen Folbigg was found guilty for the deaths of four of her children, and sentenced to 25 years in prison. All her children died as infants, and Kathleen has always maintained her innocence. But in the eyes of the law, she is Australia’s worst female serial killer. But now, almost two decades on, 151 scientists are petitioning for Kathleen Folbigg's release. They have found a gene mutation in two of Kathleen’s children and believe they died of natural causes. In this podcast Jane Hansen looks into the Kathleen Folbigg case. She tries to find out who Kathleen really is. Jane will give you insights into the history of her case, and then follow the inquiry into the new genetic discovery that could prove her innocence. 

This podcast is written and hosted by Jane Hansen, and produced and edited by Andrea Thiis-Evensen.

    In Her Own Words

    In Her Own Words

    Subscribe to Crime X+ today. The inquiry has turned its attention to the diaries that helped to convict Kathleen Folbigg for the murder of her four children more than 20 years ago. But experts are reluctant to say definitively if Folbigg’s own reflections are evidence of her guilt – or if a rare genetic mutation could be to blame. In this case, you’ve got to get comfortable in the grey.

    New Science. Old Conviction

    Subscribe to Crime X+ today. Cutting-edge science raises questions over the 20-year-old conviction of Kathleen Folbigg for killing four of her own children.

    Meadow's Law in the shadows

    Subscribe to Crime X+ today. Did the police and prosecution pursuing Kathleen Folbigg for murder rely on a pseudo-scientific theory to explain her children’s deaths - and did that lead them to overlook other possible explanations? A second woman with a story that is eerily similar to Folbigg’s also shares her devastation at being denied access to her daughter after being labeled a child-killer due to the same, now-discredited theory.

Where is the last episode?

I would have given this a 5/5, except episode 9 says we will be back with one last episode next week, so wrap up closing statements etc… I even paid for the Crime X+ subscription, assuming it was behind a pay wall… but still nothing 🤔

Hmm.

Artwork is an immediate NO.

Cashing in on this story that occurred before you and ‘true crime pods’ were born; embarrassing!
Stunted, immature try at.. what ever it is you were attempting to do.
