Fairfax podcast brings to life a 24 year old cold case

Monday 16 July, 2018

Sydney Morning Herald editor, Lisa Davies says this is an important story to tell.

 

●     Investigative series on the case of an Aboriginal couple who went missing in 1994. A young mother’s body has been found but her boyfriend is missing, presumed dead
●     Fresh police investigation and a major line of inquiry is tribal punishment
●     ‘Wrong Skin’ is the follow up from the award-winning team behind the ‘Phoebe’s Fall’ podcast, which led the Victorian Government to reform to the Coroner’s Act in June 2018

 

Fairfax Media launches Wrong Skin, a podcast delving into the cold case of Julie Buck and her boyfriend, Richard Milgin, who vanished from the remote Aboriginal community of Looma in the Kimberley region of WA.
 
Sydney Morning Herald editor, Lisa Davies says this is an important story to tell.
 
“If this happened in Sydney, Melbourne or Perth – we’d all know about. We’d all be covering it,” she said.
 
“But this is first time we’ve ever heard of this story. It’s a really important story for Australians to hear.”
 
Investigative reporter Richard Baker said the mystery of what happened to Julie and Richard is the most compelling story he’s come across in 20 years of journalism.
 
“What started with a phone call, has opened up the biggest can of worms about ancient culture and the treatment of women. Even more than that it’s all about power and control.
 
“It took a year of long phone conversations and trips to the Kimberley to gain the trust of those closest to Richard and Julie. They’re scared, but they’re brave enough to speak up.”
 
To understand what happened, listeners need to go outside their comfort zone and into a part of Australia few of us know much about.
