In this talk you will discover the murders committed in Sydney between 1800 and 1950 that remain a mystery. Hear about the crime scene, the investigation, the reaction from the public.
There have been hundreds of murders committed in Sydney since 1788 and many were never solved and over time have been forgotten. In this talk, you will hear about the cases between 1800 and 1950 that still remain cold. We will go over the details of the crime scenes, review the evidence, look at the suspects, scrutinise the investigations and discuss where they failed.
You will learn about the historical crime scene investigation techniques, early forms of forensic science, the state of the police force across the ages, see how prejudices of the time influenced an investigation and trial and see how the press at times could bungle things up. Then we will have an open discuss to talk share our theories on what truly happened.
