The fourth inquest into Azaria Chamberlain’s death is happening today, which will definitively decide the answer to that 30-year-old question.
The most publicized criminal trial in Australia involved the disappearance of the 2-month old baby from her tent during a family camping outing. The mother has consistently contended that her daughter was taken from the tent by a wild dingo, but a court found differently.
Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton spent three years behind bars following her jury conviction. She was adjudged wrongly convicted eight years after the conviction…In 1992, and she received $1.3 million compensation from the Australian government for wrongful imprisonment.
But this hasn’t been enough for the bereaved mother and father. They’ve been pushing for further investigation to conclude once and for all, how their daughter died. Though the body has never been found, her bloodied jacket was discovered not far from the campsite.
Chamberlain-Creighton has since set up a website, complete with photos, dedicated to shedding light on the truth of what happened that horrible night.
