Two mothers, Denise Govendir and Eva Webel, both murdered in their homes 15 years apart. Both crimes appeared to be robberies gone wrong. Both cases remain unsolved. Now a Sunday Telegraph* investigation by Yoni Bashan and Claire Harvey has found the links and coincidences between the bashing deaths go even deeper. The women lived a short walk from each other, were both trying to finalise a divorce and in the quiet, peaceful suburb of Dover Heights they are the only murders ever to occur there . Even more strangely Denise and Eva's husbands had been friends for almost 13 years - and one provided the other with an alibi on the day his wife was murdered.

* The Alibi podcast series was first published by The Sunday Telegraph in July 2015.

Yoni Bashan and Claire Harvey look at the evidence in the two cases and test whether George Webel had time to kill his wife in the missing 20 minutes inbetween alibi sightings.
