  • 274 - Eurydice Dixon Was Just Walking Home

    It’s been six years today since the rape and murder of 22-year-old comedian Eurydice Dixon as she was walking home in Melbourne. Six years since her boyfriend, Tony, and her family learnt the horrendous details of her death. Six years since Australia erupted with anger at the circumstances surrounding her murder. 

    Our guest Sarah Krasnostein is a criminal law expert and award-winning author of The Trauma Cleaner, The Believer and the Quarterly Essay Not Waving, Drowning: Mental Illness and Vulnerability in Australia

    Sarah joins us to discuss how the sentencing of Eurydice's killer Jaymes Todd unfolded and what needs to change to ensure women are safe on the streets.

  • 273 - The Unravelling Of Jennifer Pan’s Double Life

    As police arrive at an ordinary suburban home to find a mother dead, a father seriously injured, three people on the run and a terrified Jennifer Pan, they soon discover that something doesn't seem right. 

    Was the 24-year-old really the Olympic-caliber figure skater, award-winning pianist and straight-A student she had led her parents to believe? Or was she a high school drop out who had hired hitmen to brutally carry out their murder?

    Ahead of a controversial retrial, House of Mystery Radio Show host and bestselling author Alan R. Warren unpacks the lies that lead to this fateful night in his book Deadly Betrayal: The True Story of Jennifer Pan, Daughter From Hell.

  • 272 - There Were 105 Bruises On Her Body

    When Kirra-Lea McLoughlin died on a property near Gympie, Queensland, law enforcement and medical examiners were baffled.

    Kirra’s former partner would claim she went to sleep after a fight and simply didn’t wake up. Family said there had been a party at the property the night before, but neighbours disputed that. Kirra’s body had 105 signs of bruising, and there was a 12 hour period where emergency services weren’t contacted about her rapidly declining state.

    Former police officer Jamie Pultz met Kirra McLoughlin before her death. His podcast Beenham Valley Road investigates the case, talking to Kirra’s friends and family, and looking into the events leading up to and following her death.

  • 271 - Jennifer & Jack Edwards Had Just Come Home From School

    On July 5th, 2018 Jennifer and Jack Edwards were murdered in their home on Hull Street in the Sydney suburb of West Pennant Hills. 

    Their mother Olga Edwards returned from work that day to a wall of lights and sirens in front of her home. Police wouldn't let her inside, but she knew almost instantly who was responsible for whatever evil had happened inside her house. She knew there was only one reason police would be at her doorstep. 

    “It’s my husband,” she told police. “It’s my husband. We have the final court hearing in two weeks.”

  • 270 - Tara Did Everything 'Right'

    Tara Costigan was murdered in 2015, one day after taking out a DVO on her ex-partner Marcus Rappel. The day he laid a finger on her was the day he murdered her. Before that the abuse had been verbal. Emotional. 

    Tara did everything ‘right’. She followed advice and took steps in the system designed to protect her, even though she was nervous about how he might react. 

    And then she died, in the most horrendous of ways, while cradling her one-week-old daughter. Her murder changed the fabric of Canberra and the conversation surrounding domestic violence.
