Geordie then investigates the murder mystery of The Lady of the Swamp… In 1952, an Australian recluse called Margaret Clement mysteriously disappeared without a trace. But her story begins back in the early 1900s in rural Gippsland in Victoria, Australia, when she and her sister Jeanie went from high society to hard-times in the space of a few years. Find out how they lost their fortune, lost their family swampland called Tullaree and the mysterious circumstances leading up to how Margaret eventually lost her life.

On Christmas Eve, 1945, a devastating house fire ripped through the family home of George Sodder in Fayetteville, West Virginia. As George, his wife and four of his kids escaped the blaze, they sadly watched their home burn to the ground, knowing their five other children were trapped inside and unable to get out.
