    Claremont, Part 1

    Claremont, Part 1

    Nicole awoke in her bed with someone next to her, but it wasn’t her boyfriend like she first thought. It was someone else. She grabbed his face, dug her fingernails in hard, and the man jumped up from the bed.


    He was tall and wearing a light coloured silk kimono. Nicole screamed for her father in the next room, and the man fled from the house.


    Nicole called the police and they attended the house, but the intruder had escaped, leaving behind just one clue as to his identity; the semen-stained white and apricot coloured kimono.


    Join Shaun and Chloe for part 1 of the Claremont serial murders.

    Maya Jakic & Megumi Suzuki

    It was the 17th of April, 1999, and in Adelaide, South Australia, two rookie police officers were coming to the end of their shift.


    As the two young officers returned to their vehicle, they noticed a handwritten note on their windscreen, wedged under the wipers.


    It read: ‘There’s a dead girl's body in the shrubs of the grounds near the main road of the Payneham Police Station. This is no joke.’


    Join Shaun as he tells the tale of two seemingly unconnected murders which occurred two years apart, and the phone calls which led them to the perpetrator who’d committed both crimes.

    The Greenough Family Massacre

    The Greenough Family Massacre

    As the car drew closer, Daniel turned on the kitchen light and headed out front to see who was arriving at 3AM. The family dogs were barking out the back, attuned to the strange hour the person was visiting.


    Daniel walked down the driveway to see the driver, who got out of the car. But he’d left the headlights on, so it was too bright for Daniel to clearly see who it was...


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the callous murders of the young MacKenzie family - the details of which were ordered to be sealed - and the police investigation and groundbreaking scientific work which exposed the perpetrator.

    The Third Victim

    The Third Victim

    This was a guy who’d worked a number of different jobs in his time - aside from the Navy, he’d been a sheet metal fabricator, a commercial diver, air system technician, a welder and even a postie. He’d also lived in pretty much every Australian State, and even ventured to New Zealand at one stage between May and August of 2006.


    If Sara Lee Davey and Rachael Campbell were indeed two of his victims, who is the third victim?


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the disappearance of Sara Lee Davey, the murder of Rachael Campbell, and the suicide note of a serial killer, who admitted to killing three people during his life.

    The Postcard Bandit

    The Postcard Bandit

    24th of November 1989, Fremantle Prison, Western Australia


    The trio removed the bar and slipped out of the workshop window and gained access to the roof of the print shop. From there, they went along the guard’s walkway, jumped from roof to roof, until they hit the edge of the prison grounds. 


    One of them missed the last jump, fell and injured his leg. The other two vaulted over the outer wall to freedom. The Postcard Bandit was free once again, and the hunt for him was on…


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the life and times of Brenden Abbott.

    The Kimberley Killer

    The Kimberley Killer

    Not long after sunrise Peter Leutenegger was flying his chopper across the Jubilee Downs Station, singing along to a few of his favourite Slim Dusty songs. He was mustering horses in preparation for the upcoming Fitzroy Crossing Rodeo; a popular annual event that saw many people travel to the area, when he noticed something unusual on the ground below.


    It appeared to be a vehicle, but it was well covered by some form of camouflage. The power of his chopper blades slightly blew the green covering off the vehicle, and Peter thought he’d seen a man lying down inside, a man with no shirt on, camouflage pants, and a bandanna wrapped around his head...


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the series of brutal spree murders throughout the Kimberley region in 1987, the unlikely helicopter pilot who located the killer, and the tactical police response that brought him down.

Interesting

This is a really interesting podcast. There’s in depth analysis. The male narrator has an easy voice to listen to, the female narrator Chloe sounds like she is reading and can sometimes sound a little flat. The body of the podcast is so good, but I don’t think there’s a need for them to make small talk before the podcast (eg where does the name Big W come from?) or each share a happy thought at the end of the podcast, it sounds a little trite. Well done on this excellent story telling otherwise and thank you.

Love this podcast

Shaun and Chloe are fantastic- great facts and presentation and super interesting. Chloe is the perfect balance for Shaun in the description and story telling of these crimes and unbelievable people. Shauns sense of humour is also a great extra-“drunk as a chook” being one of my favourites in his comments. Thanks guys - will be listening!

Insightful hidden gem

I’ve been a fan of true crime for as long as I can remember. However I’m ashamed to admit I have only recently discovered True Blue Crime. What a fantastic podcast! Well researched, insightful and incredibly in depth episodes. Shaun and Chloe are a fantastic team and you can tell they love what they do. I’m so glad I finally found this podcast. And although late, I at least have a number of episodes to binge on. Keep up the brilliant work guys!
