Cold Case: Marea Yann - Part 2

This is part 2 of our exploration into Marea Yann’s case and our guests are  Esther Yann and close family friend of Marea and her family, lawyer Frank Chen.


You know when someone says they’ll do anything they can to right a wrong…Frank Chen really meant it. And you’ll hear the extraordinary lengths he’s gone to so he can fulfil  the promise he made to Marea at her funeral that he would do all he could to bring her killer to justice.


Esther was in primary school when her beloved nonna was murdered. Now, as an adult Esther’s been advocating tirelessly for justice for Marea.
