As launch day is approaching. We thought an introduction to tell you all a little about us at True Crime New Zealand. In our attempt to dehumanise the people behind the podcast to focus on the humans involved in the crimes, we fear we have gone too far.
Case 3: Minnie Dean

Case 3: Minnie Dean

2019-06-0244:13

WINTON. SOUTHLAND. On August the 12th 1895 ‘Southland baby farmer’ Williamina Dean became the first and only woman to be sentenced to death in New Zealand. The name of Minnie Dean lives on, and around that name has grown a legend. Southland children who misbehave are threatened, not with boogeymen, but with being sent to Minnie Dean. Visit www.truecrimenz.com for additional information on this case. Including a transcript of this episode, with supporting pictures and sources. Written, edited and hosted by Sirius
WAINUIOMATA, WELLINGTON. On the afternoon of January the 6th 2007. Karl Kuchenbecker was riding his quad bike in the hills that connect Lower Hutt to Wainuiomata. Karl was riding through a firebreak on his way home. When he was confronted by a drug frenzied, overly aggressive man wielding a shotgun. The man fired. Karl was hit and he fell to the ground. The man fired the shotgun two more times hitting Kuchenbecker. Karl, with what strength he had left made a run for it. He was then grabbed and stabbed repeatedly. Puncturing his lung. Kuchenbecker lay dying, alone. As the man looked for more victims. This random act of killing has chilling similarities to the 1992 murder of Paul Anderson. Both were a victim seemingly chosen at random, both were completely unprovoked, and both were committed by Graeme Burton. Visit www.truecrimenz.com for additional information on this case. Including a transcript of this episode, with supporting pictures and supplementary links. Written, edited and hosted by Sirius CCTV footage of Graeme's attack on a prison inmate.

LOWER HUTT, WELLINGTON. In 1992 Paul Neville Anderson was a lighting technician at Wellington nightclub, the Carpark. After hearing some commotion with a man and the club’s security. Anderson found himself confronted by a large, enraged and intoxicated man. The man was also weilding a knife. The man asked Anderson if he worked at the club. Anderson supposedly confirmed this and the knife was put to use, Paul was viciously stabbed and he collapsed. Later bleeding out. But who was the slayer? And why commit such a random act of killing? This is the case of the man who later became known as the Lower Hutt Serial Killer. www.truecrimenewzealand.com Written, edited and hosted by Sirius "Day of Chaos", "Drone in D" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

Kindness is my favourite word - I learned this from my father. It is also what our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern advocates.

You have an excellent podcast! I live in the USA and it is so very interesting to hear that the crimes may be called by a different name but unfortunately we have the same horrific actions happen just the same all over the world. I love learning how crime in different countries are caught and punished. Your voice is compassionate and very dramatic keep it going!!

Really not impressed with the comment about Māori at the end of the podcast. It is worth the extra effort to pronounce Māori kupu correctly just as we do with English words. I have enjoyed your podcast thus far but that comment should be removed
