The murder of Tiahleigh Palmer with Courier-Mail Crime and Courts Editor Kate Kyriacou
A lot of us will remember the haunting photo of beautiful 12-year-old Tiahleigh Palmer, who was murdered in 2015. However the path to the dark truth of what happened to Tiahleigh was long and shocking and not resolved until several years later.
Tiahleigh was living in foster care in Logan, Queensland with Rick and Julene Thorburn and their sons Trent and Joshua.
Kate Kyriacou, the Courier-Mail newspaper’s Crime and Courts Editor, has reported extensively on Tiahleigh’s death and the tragic full story that emerged. Kate became close with Tiahleigh’s mum Cindy Palmer, who waged her own social media efforts to find her daughter in the days after she disappeared.
