Show Notes Ep 230 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb

Was a man convicted of murder in Australia in the late 19th Century also responsible for the Jack the Ripper murders in London?

Far from being a Ripper 'fan', author Garry Linnell is intrigued by Victorian history. In his new book ‘Devil’s Work’, he doesn't just retell the story we're so familiar with but uses it as a starting point to take us further into the social upheaval of the time, both in England and in Australia, where his suspect ended his days. Prepare yourself for some truly fascinating revelations about the formative years Australian culture, including a most unexpected cameo appearance by an early Prime Minister and his wife.

    Who Killed Canberra Grandmother Irma Palasics?

    41:31

    Episode 236: On November 6, 1999, Canberra grandmother Irma Palasics was on the floor of her home, her face gaffe taped, drowning in her own blood from a broken nose as violent intruders ransacked the home, looking for money and valuables. Her husband Gregor was also brutally assaulted and was unconscious for a time and he made the call to emergency services to report his wife’s murder. Irma’s grandson John Mikita feels that the case is tantalisingly close to being solved but frustratingly, despite a few breakthroughs on the case and a $500,000 reward, no one has been arrested. Police believe that members of the Hungarian community in Melbourne can provide the vital clue to the identity of the people who killed Irma. This was a brutal crime and as we’ve seen with some cold cases in recent years, it can just take one call, or the smallest piece of information that can bring families some answers. This case can be solved. You can watch the 60 Minutes interview from Season 2014 about the case here: https://www.9now.com.au/60-minutes/2014 (you need to create a Nine Now account) John Mikita runs and maintains a website https://www.whokilledirma.com.au/ that has lots of information and videos. If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can phone Lifeline on 13 11 14 or https://www.lifeline.org.au/  If you have any information on the cases covered by this podcast,please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information. Like us on Facebook  ​https://www.facebook.com/Australian-True-Crime-with-Meshel-Laurie-and-Emily-Webb-968806949920266/?fref=ts Follow us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/australiantruecrimepodcast/   Twitter https://twitter.com/australiantcpod?lang=en Support us on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/AustTrueCrimePodVisit our Bookshop https://australiantruecrimepodcast.com/bookshopThis is a Smart Fella production in conjunction with the acast creator network.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.

    Hedley Thomas’ own unsolved crime.

    35:34

    Episode 233Hedley Thomas is an award-winning investigative journalist and podcast producer who brought us The Teacher’s Pet and The Night Driver podcasts. He is back with a new podcast series – Shandee's Story – where he goes back to the night of the 23-year old’s murder to find out who killed her and why.For those of you not familiar with The Teacher’s Pet podcast, Hedley delved into the cold case of missing woman, Lynette Dawson, who disappeared on Sydney's Northern Beaches in 1982. The case remains unsolved some 39 years later. While her husband Chris Dawson pleaded ‘not guilty’ for her murder, he was charged and will stand trial next May. The podcast was withdrawn for reasons of potential pre-trial prejudice and is no longer available in Australia.The Night Driver podcast follows the disappearance of 31 year-old Janine Vaughan, who was last seen getting into a red car after a night out in the township of Bathurst 20 years ago. The case went from 47 suspects to just 3, including a pharmacist, former Bathurst detective and aged care worker. Her sister, Kylie, and her family have continued searching since, the podcast giving them hope that justice may still be served. Hedley joins Meshel Laurie this week to talk about those cases, but also about the unsolved crime that haunts his own family – a shooting at his home 19 years ago that still lives with them today.Shandee's Story Podcast: https://bit.ly/3b5Mbv5The Night Driver Podcast: https://bit.ly/3EjxEshBuy CSITold You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobookread by Meshel You can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.

    Prison Officer in Danger

    57:01

    Episode 232It’s hard to imagine a job where you have to be vigilant all the time, being ready to attend to traumatic and unpredictable situations. But that’s what prison officers have to do every day. Social worker and therapist Bruce Perham has worked with hundreds of officers and he’s written a book called Code Blue: Prison Officer in Danger about trauma and PTSD in these first responders.Through the course of his years of going in and out of prisons and hearing the day to day experiences of prison officers, Bruce came to understand that he was dealing with professionals expected to run toward unpredictably dangerous situations at any moment in the course of a work day. It’s a high risk occupation and one that we, as the general public, don’t really know much about.Thanks to our Guest Bruce Perham.Find out more about Bruce at https://letstalkdifferently.com.au/about-us/Bruce Perham’s book is Code Blue: Prison Officer in DangerMORE LISTENING:EP #75 Pentridge Confidential with Vaughn Ruddick EP #86 Self-mutilator Gary David with Vaughn Ruddick If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can phone Lifeline on 13 11 14 or https://www.lifeline.org.au/Phoenix Australia is Australia’s National Centre of Excellence in Posttraumatic Mental Health https://www.phoenixaustralia.org/Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by MeshelYou can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.You can subscribe to Calm Ya Farm here.You can visit the Calm Ya Farm website here.Like us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or...Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.

    A 1942 cold case and cover up with Bob Marmion

    42:57

    Episode 231There were only two unsolved murders in the state of Victoria in 1942, and they are heavily shrouded in mystery. These murders happened during World War II time, on the Bellarine Peninsula, in Queenscliff, in an area occupied by Australian troops who were patrolling and defending the coastline.Early one cold, wintry morning in late May 1942, the bullet-ridden body of Army Driver Roy Willis was found on the side of the road. He had been shot a number of times with a military revolver.In September 1942 17-year-old Gunner John Hulston went missing whilst on guard duty. His body was later found further down the coast. He had also been shot in the chest with an army revolver.Former police officer and historian and researcher Bob Marmion, who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula, loves a good mystery and when he found out about these murders, and that they were still unsolved, the old detective skills he’d flexed in his 15 years in the job came back to life and he spent 10 years investigating and writing a book called Murder at the Fort.Thanks to our Guest Bob Marmion.His books are Murder at the Fort and The Price We Pay, about his experience with Post Traumatic Stress disorder.If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can phone Lifeline on 13 11 14.Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by MeshelYou can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.You can subscribe to Calm Ya Farm here.You can visit the Calm Ya Farm website here.Like us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or TwitterSupport us on PatreonVisit our BookshopListen on Apple PodcastsListen on Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.

    Noona Went to Jail

    1:06:05

    Show Notes Ep 229 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily WebbWell I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, some of the best people I’ve ever met have been to prison. Here’s another one. Catherine from Horsham went to jail, and she’s thoroughly lovely, in fact, I bet you can totally relate to her. I'm a bit delirious with our endless lockdown I have to admit. I don't think I'm ever going to be released from my home or ever hug another adult again. I'd probably love this if it was a book but this as a life sucks a big bag of dicks. It was very nice to zoom with Catherine. Our poor guests. Do you think they realise how desperate I am for their company? Anyway. All my love to you. I'll go and have another conversation with my dog now. Thank you so much for listening.Mx Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by Meshel You can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.You can subscribe to Calm Ya Farm here.You can visit the Calm Ya Farm website here. Like us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or TwitterSupport us on PatreonVisit our BookshopListen on ApplePodcastsListen on GooglePodcastsListen on Spotify If you have any information on the cases covered by this podcast,please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.
