This true crime episode is from San Remo Victoria. The Traditional Custodians of Country are the people of the The Bunurong People.   Hear about horse crimes, theft, other crimes and a murder.    True crime podcasts or episodes usually focus on just murders and missing people but that's not all there is in the field of crimes. Haunted Hills started out exploring a theory that criminals kept the legend going to give them space to keep on distilling illegally, making illegal coins. It shares a little about the small towns, as Robert Kennedy once said "Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on."   While I encourage people to play judge and jury, we are not re-adjudicating these crimes most of them occurred too long ago to be appropriate however, these discussions create a contrast of values.   For ad-free listening and live discussions about the content shared here join for as little as $2US a month.
