Hello, Eavesdropppers! This week is a mystery mash-up, starting with an Australian true-crime mystery that has twists, turns and – SPOILER ALERT – no conclusions…
On September 23 in 1986, the brutal murder of 23 year old Beth Barnard shook the small community of Phillip Island off the coast of Victoria in Australia. It was an open secret that Beth was having an affair with local farmer and entrepreneur Fergus Cameron, and it came as no surprise that prime suspect number one was Fergus’s wife Vivienne. Except on the night of Beth’s murder, Vivienne and Fergus were involved in a number of strange situations and since then, no one has ever seen Vivienne alive again… What happened to Beth? Where is Vivienne? Did Vivienne kill Beth? Is there something else going on here? Listen now to Geordie discussing this Australian murder mystery.
Michelle then goes off-piste with a medical mystery that baffled doctors and courts and almost resulted in a woman losing her children… In 2002, mother of two Lydia Fairchild had split from her long-term partner. To get social welfare, she and her kids and ex-partner had to undergo DNA testing… and it didn’t go well for Lydia. Turns out she had no DNA connection to her kids and it didn’t take long for courts to begin criminal proceedings against her for fraud, a possible surrogacy scam and identity theft. But Lydia pushed these kids out of her birth canal and knew she was the biological mother. What was going on? How could this happen? Listen now to find out!
