Description

Lyn and Chris Dawson appear to have the perfect marriage. He's a star footballer and popular high school teacher. She's a devoted wife and mother. They share a beautiful home above Sydney's northern beaches. But when Lyn goes missing, dark secrets are buried. This is no fairytale, but a sordid story of strangely close twin brothers, teenage student lovers, and probable murder. The Australian's Hedley Thomas digs deep into a cold case which has been unsolved for 36 years, uncovering startling new evidence.

Jenn Bennett The production company had decided to block the feed in Australia so that during trial the podcast wouldn’t influence the public’s judgement on the case, that’s probably why you can’t listen to it at the moment

I don't believe the episodes are very redundant. It's important to go over the facts, and there are always new facts coming to light. It's important to meld the old with the new to paint the full picture. Either way you take it, in my opinion it is a very interesting case, with many screw ups by the police, sex, lies, coverups, devastation and horrible sadness. I really appreciate the way the narrator has been so thorough and has gotten the public behind solving this case and finally giving Lynette and her family justice.

I'm enjoying this podcast a lot but good god, it is so repetitive. How many times has he told us that two separate coroners concluded "probable murder". 10? 15?

I strongly support this decision by The Australian to make sure that this prosecution CAN go to trial, and the material gathered by the team be used in court. I wouldn't want to give the defence any reason for evidence to be inadmissible or to claim that a fair trial can't go ahead. For me, this is a sound decision and enables justice to be served. Thank you for the update!!!

That seems excessive. How hard is it to find 12 jurors that haven't listened to the podcast.

I wish I could have faith in the justice system to do the right thing. But there are just too many cases where that didnt happen! I guess all we can do is hope.

It's simply disturbing that the school was running rampant with teachers taking advantage of these kids!!! Unreal!

has there ever been an investigation into the sex ring at the school.... why haven't these teachers been bought to justice like Pell has now?

Not only did they fail to investigate but that failure of that could have been proven Chris had lied about the phonecall! Even in the 80's phone call could have been investigated. Thus proving that it never occurred. No phone call proof equals his guilt.

Have they ever brought in dogs to search the property for remains? Also, have they ever searched his twins property? Didn't he take his wife and kids on an unplanned trip right after Christmas?

so frustrating how slow moving and how much repeating of things already discussed goes on in this podcast. just listen to the first two episodes and the last two episodes and save yourself some drudgery.

Congratulations to Hedley and The Australian team on a fantastic piece of work. I have just spent my 3 weeks holiday listening to the podcast from beginning to end and though I was familiar with the case, I was gripped by the podcast. You have made a clear cut case. Lets hope Lynn's family and Daughters get some peace and closure soon and we cannot forget this is real peoples lives. So sad.
