    An Affair, A Murder And A Cover-Up: Inside The Missing Campers Trial

    An Affair, A Murder And A Cover-Up: Inside The Missing Campers Trial

    The Wonnangatta Valley is the perfect place for anyone hiding a secret, or anyone who doesn’t want to be found. The perfect place to have an affair. But also, the perfect place to get away with murder. 
    Over the years, several people have gone missing there, never to be found again, and that very nearly happened to 74-year-old Russell Hill and 73-year-old Carol Clay. 
    But thanks to some careful police work, detectives were able to track down a man named Greg Lynn. And with his trial just concluded, the former Jetstar pilot is waiting to find out how long he’ll spend behind bars.

    Sarah Everard And The Policeman She Should Have Been Able To Trust

    Sarah Everard And The Policeman She Should Have Been Able To Trust

    In March 2021, Sarah Everard’s body was found in a stream in Kent, wrapped in a bag. The 33-year-old had been raped and murdered after being abducted off the street in London’s south. 
    But Sarah wasn’t dragged away kicking and screaming. She went willingly with her captor because - as a serving police officer - he pretended to arrested her. 
    We speak to LBC journalist Henry Riley to revisit this crime, the impact it had on us and the changes that have been made since.

    How The Amish Wife’s Husband Got Away With Murder

    How The Amish Wife’s Husband Got Away With Murder

    When Ida Stutzman perished in a barn fire on a warm summer night in 1977, her husband Eli’s side of the story didn’t add up from the start.
    But the Stutzmans were part of the Amish community. The very nature of their insular world meant the suspicious nature of Ida’s death went unspoken for many years. They rarely talk to outsiders, which is why author Greg Olsen had his work cut out for him when penning his latest book The Amish Wife. 
    But slowly, with the help of his researcher Robin Lassen, a story of cover-up, lies and an investigation that never stood a chance started to reveal itself.

    Hedley Thomas Is Searching For Bronwyn

    Hedley Thomas Is Searching For Bronwyn

    The disappearance of Bronwyn Winfield was barely covered by the media in 1993. 
    It took 11 days for her husband Jon Winfield to report her as missing after that Sunday night. Very little was done in the way of a police investigation in those early days, in fact it would be years until her case was actually taken seriously.
    A coronial inquest nearly a decade later determined that Bronwyn had likely been murdered. It went as far as recommending Jon be prosecuted - but that never happened. 
    Hedley Thomas's podcast The Teacher's Pet helped to solve the disappearance of missing mother Lynette Simms - formerly known as Lynette Dawson. Now, in his latest investigation, he's hopeful of getting some answers for Bronwyn’s family.

IDF Supporters

I do love this podcast, such a shame I have to boycott due to Mia Freedman supporting the IDF and genocide of Palestinian people.

Love this

I love this podcast! Only complaint is I wish they would drop more often!

Out of touch

Do we really need to hear another podcast talk about the Bronwyn case? There are so many other cases that need to have a platform yet this seems like such an easy reach. What happened to new, original content?
