Episodes

  • We have decided to finish up making episodes for True Blue Crime.


    This will undoubtedly be a surprise and disappointing for many people, but we want to finish things on our terms and now feels like the right time to do that.

    It’s a decision that we don't take lightly and we’ve been discussing for a while now, and we’ve reached it together.


    When we started this show, we committed to ten episodes, and didn’t expect anyone outside of our partners, family and friends to listen to it. We were stunned when the downloads kept going up and more and more people were tuning in.  


    Now we feel that we’ve taken the show in its current format with our current resources as far as we can.

    It's been a blast making these episodes for you all. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening, giving our show a chance, and following us throughout our journey.

  • Robbie and Amber spoke on the phone regularly, but fell out of touch as time went on. But then one day, all of a sudden, Amber was moving into Robbie’s house, which was a surprise to him.


    He asked his Mum, Anne, why Amber was there, was she boarding with them now or something? Anne said words to the effect of ‘you know what your father’s like...”


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they cover the disappearance of Amber Haigh and the death of Janelle Goodwin, two women who were involved with the same man, Robert Geeves.

  • It was mid afternoon on May the 7th 1990, and Wendy Davis was working at the Hollywood Hospital in Nedlands. 

    She was at her desk, immersed in her work, when she heard a voice behind her ask ‘is it okay if I use the toilet?’


    Wendy swivelled in her chair and saw a young Telecom worker, all of 20, 21 years old.

    She nodded. A moment later Wendy felt a hand on her shoulder and another hand over her mouth…

  • Nicole awoke in her bed with someone next to her, but it wasn’t her boyfriend like she first thought. It was someone else. She grabbed his face, dug her fingernails in hard, and the man jumped up from the bed.


    He was tall and wearing a light coloured silk kimono. Nicole screamed for her father in the next room, and the man fled from the house.


    Nicole called the police and they attended the house, but the intruder had escaped, leaving behind just one clue as to his identity; the semen-stained white and apricot coloured kimono.

  • It was the 17th of April, 1999, and in Adelaide, South Australia, two rookie police officers were coming to the end of their shift.


    As the two young officers returned to their vehicle, they noticed a handwritten note on their windscreen, wedged under the wipers.


    It read: ‘There’s a dead girl's body in the shrubs of the grounds near the main road of the Payneham Police Station. This is no joke.’


    Join Shaun as he tells the tale of two seemingly unconnected murders which occurred two years apart, and the phone calls which led them to the perpetrator who’d committed both crimes.

  • As the car drew closer, Daniel turned on the kitchen light and headed out front to see who was arriving at 3AM. The family dogs were barking out the back, attuned to the strange hour the person was visiting.


    Daniel walked down the driveway to see the driver, who got out of the car. But he’d left the headlights on, so it was too bright for Daniel to clearly see who it was...


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the callous murders of the young MacKenzie family - the details of which were ordered to be sealed - and the police investigation and groundbreaking scientific work which exposed the perpetrator.

  • This was a guy who’d worked a number of different jobs in his time - aside from the Navy, he’d been a sheet metal fabricator, a commercial diver, air system technician, a welder and even a postie. He’d also lived in pretty much every Australian State, and even ventured to New Zealand at one stage between May and August of 2006.


    If Sara Lee Davey and Rachael Campbell were indeed two of his victims, who is the third victim?


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the disappearance of Sara Lee Davey, the murder of Rachael Campbell, and the suicide note of a serial killer, who admitted to killing three people during his life.

  • 24th of November 1989, Fremantle Prison, Western Australia


    The trio removed the bar and slipped out of the workshop window and gained access to the roof of the print shop. From there, they went along the guard’s walkway, jumped from roof to roof, until they hit the edge of the prison grounds. 


    One of them missed the last jump, fell and injured his leg. The other two vaulted over the outer wall to freedom. The Postcard Bandit was free once again, and the hunt for him was on…

  • Not long after sunrise Peter Leutenegger was flying his chopper across the Jubilee Downs Station, singing along to a few of his favourite Slim Dusty songs. He was mustering horses in preparation for the upcoming Fitzroy Crossing Rodeo; a popular annual event that saw many people travel to the area, when he noticed something unusual on the ground below.


    It appeared to be a vehicle, but it was well covered by some form of camouflage. The power of his chopper blades slightly blew the green covering off the vehicle, and Peter thought he’d seen a man lying down inside, a man with no shirt on, camouflage pants, and a bandanna wrapped around his head...


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the series of brutal spree murders throughout the Kimberley region in 1987, the unlikely helicopter pilot who located the killer, and the tactical police response that brought him down.

  • Anzac Day Friday, 25 April 2014


    John Pearson said it was a bleak irony that his brother Martin was killed on a day that was all about mateship and courage.


    “This is an act of supreme cowardice and I can’t believe somebody’s conscience hasn’t got the better of them and they won’t be struck by an act of guilt,” 


    “I can’t believe the extreme irony of someone leaving a vet by the side of the road. Being left for dead on Anzac Day, a day we remember mateship and self-sacrifice, and he was left as roadkill.”


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the tragic hit and run death of a well-respected vet and family man, and the police investigation that uncovered the culprit, and another strange death he was connected with from six years earlier.

  • On the 26th of May 1990 a number of calls came in to 3AW’s late night lonely hearts program called Matchmakers. One seemingly eligible bachelor received several interested parties and potential matches: 


    “G’Day. I’m Rodney from Castlemaine. I’m 35, a Gemini, and a Marine Biologist. I enjoy basketball and squash. I’m a non-smoker and not a big drinker. I’m just looking for someone to share in my happiness and a quiet life. I like to keep things clean, but otherwise, I have no major hang ups…”


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the man dubbed The Lonely Hearts Killer, and the monumental failure of the justice system that saw him prematurely released to go on and kill again.

  • On the 14th of June of 2018, the day after the murder of Melbourne comedian, Eurydice Dixon, police comments in the media drew the ire of the public, with the drawn inference that that women needed to exercise greater care in potentially compromising situations, like walking home alone through a park at night.


    Kon Karapanagiotidis, a lawyer and social worker, tweeted the following after police comments to the media:


    “I can only imagine the rage and fear women feel to see women die doing everyday mundane things like walking home, like they do too, only to then be told it’s their fault and that they need to be more careful,” 


    “Stop blaming women. Make men the issue.”


    Hundreds of people shared the tweet, including a young 24 year old woman named Toyah Cordingley...


    Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the senseless murder of a bright and caring young woman, and the pending extradition of a person of interest.

  • With Purana still gathering evidence to support their case, Federal Police, led by Agent Jarrod Ragg, who’d been relentlessly pursuing Tony for some time, made the request to have Tony’s bail revoked.


    But without the evidence to support their reasoning, Justice Gillard did not revoke bail just yet.

    Instead, Tony was free to go after his day in court on Friday March the 17th, 2006. 


    Outside court, he gave Purana Detective Jim Coghlan from the Asset Location Squad, a new mobile number he was using. Tony smiled at Jim as he scrawled the number on his palm.


    On Monday the 20th of March, 2006, Tony didn’t report for bail at South Melbourne Police station, and his legal team led by Con Helitois, were forced to withdraw from the case. Tony had fled, where exactly, was anyone’s guess…


    Join Shaun and Chloe for the final instalment of the Melbourne Gangland Killings, as they discuss the international manhunt for Australia’s most wanted man, Tony Mokbel, and the fate of his imprisoned friend and Gangland War instigator, Carl Williams.

  • Mick was on a mission to find Graham’s killers.


    Benji and Carl said they had nothing to do with it, but they’d heard that Asians, possibly the Chinese, had something to do with it.


    Mick was unmoved by the suggestion and word had it he was next on the list. He said to Carl;


    ‘You walk away from this and mind your own business. But anything with you, that’s your problem, but if anything comes my way then I’ll send somebody to you. I’ll be careful with you, you be careful with me. I believe you, you believe me, now we’re even. That’s a warning. It’s not my war.’


    But 3 months later the war came to Mick’s doorstep…

  • Carl Williams had a new attack dog. Andrew “Benji” Veniamin was now spending the best part of his days with a new best mate; despite him allegedly accepting a contract from Jason Moran to off Carl.


    The way Benji told it, he’d gotten his way into the roof cavity of Carl’s house one night, and was primed to do the job, when he heard Roberta singing to their daughter Dhakota, while putting her to bed.

    Benji knew then, he couldn't kill Carl. Others might think the lure of easy drug money on offer from the likes of Tony Mokbel, and his friend Carl, spoke louder than Roberta’s singing voice.


    Whatever the case, Benji had his foot in their camp now, and it wouldn’t be long until he put his skills to use, skills he’d be building up since his childhood…

  • 13th of October 1999


    Carl drove his hire car to Gladstone Park, a northwest suburb of Melbourne, and waited for Mark and Jason to arrive.


    When they did, the trio hopped into Carl’s hire car and drove around until they found a small reserve in Barrington Crescent. It was mid afternoon, and the small park was flanked by residential homes.


    When the subject of prices and past deals gone awry came up, Jason produced a small .22 Derringer and put the barrel to Carl’s gut. ‘No Jason’, Carl yelled, before the shot went off, the slug going into Carl’s abdomen.
