23: HOMETOWN MURDERS: Canberra, 1983 – the brother-sister killing the internet forgot

Hello, Eavesdroppers! This week we have a special true-crime report on a hometown murder no one can find on the internet… This episode is a special request from an Eavesdropper, who asked us to investigate a murder she remembered from her childhood…

In Australia on September 20, 1983, a 15-year old boy in the Canberra suburb of Red Hill murdered his 13-year old sister, in the middle of the night, seemingly without motive. A former alumni from the school of the murdered girl wrote to Eavesdroppin’ hosts Geordie & Michelle, asking them to look into the murder, as she could find no public record of the killing on the internet. What Geordie & Michelle discovered are the disturbing reports of a troubled teen who murdered his sister without explanation – and the bizarre reportage of the case at the time. Why is this murder digitally unsearchable? Why is the reporting so strange? And why are Geordie & Michelle not using the names of the victim and perpetrator in the episode? It’s a psychological true-crime ride this week and an episode you won’t want to miss. All this and more on Eavesdroppin’.

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode and remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
