Who was Sydney's first serial killer?

In December 1932, as the Depression tightened its grip, the body of a woman was found in Queens Park, Sydney. It was a popular park. There were houses in plain view. Yet this woman had been violently murdered without anyone noticing. Other equally brutal and shocking murders of women in public places were to follow. Australia's first serial killer was at large. Author Tanya Bretherton joins April to discuss this case.


You can find Tanya's book The Killing Streets at any good bookstore now.
