Cold Case: Marea Yann
As we know, behind every cold case is a family, and 19 years after her shocking murder, Marea Yann’s family remains divided. Tensions that were developing in the lead up to her death, were cast in stone during the murder trial in 2008 that resulted in an acquittal.
Some family members still believe the acquittal was appropriate and police never fully investigated alternative theories, while other family members believe it was a terrible miscarriage of justice and continue to pursue a second trial.
We’ll explore Marea Yann’s case over the next two episodes of Australian true crime and we begin today with Marea’s son Jeff.
