Man Overboard, the Enduring Mystery of Andrew Witton
Australian True Crime is back for 2023, and we begin this year with the story of Andrew Witton.
Andrew was a sailor, surfer and adventurer, who disappeared from his yacht in a remote stretch of the Pacific Ocean in 2007.
He was sailing with another man at the time, Simon Golding. As far has Andrew's friends and family are concerned, Simon has yet to provide a satisfactory account of what happened to Andrew on that trip.
Andrew's sister, Louise Witton, joins us for this episode.
