Australian True Crime returns for new season

Friday 10 January, 2020

Australia's independent podcast, Australian True Crime, returned for a new season this week, which continues to uncover the darkness at the heart of Australian life. 

The podcast hosted by comedian and media personality, Meshel Laurie and journalist and true crime writer Emily Webb, has notched up over 135 episodes and a loyal audience of over 1.4 million listeners each month. Together with expert interviews, the ever-curious hosts probe the underbelly of Australia.

The first episode of the new season kicks off with an interview with Fiona Splitt, the widow of gold prospector, Bruce Schuler who was murdered on a remote cattle station in Far North Queensland in 2012. The Supreme Court charged the station’s owners with the murder, depsite never finding the body or supporting forensic evidence.
 
Determined to seek justice for her husband, Fiona turned her tragedy into a fight for the introduction of ‘no body, no parole’ laws.
 
These laws mean station owners Stephen Struber and Diane Wilson-Struber will serve out their life sentences in jail unless they reveal where Schuler’s body is. The guilty pair, however, have always protested their innocence.

Australian True Crime is part of the Acast Creator Network
