  • 251 - William Tyrrell Update - Who Really Said What and When?

    Show Notes Ep 236 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb

     

    Australia is haunted by its missing children and none more so than William Tyrrell. On November 16 NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller sensationally announced a breakthrough in the investigation. The headlines have been extraordinary and at times misleading. Here are the interviews behind those headlines.

  • 250 - Who Killed Canberra Grandmother Irma Palasics?

    Episode 236:

     

    On November 6, 1999, Canberra grandmother Irma Palasics was on the floor of her home, her face gaffe taped, drowning in her own blood from a broken nose as violent intruders ransacked the home, looking for money and valuables.

     

    Her husband Gregor was also brutally assaulted and was unconscious for a time and he made the call to emergency services to report his wife’s murder.

     

    Irma’s grandson John Makita feels that the case is tantalisingly close to being solved but frustratingly, despite a few breakthroughs on the case and a $500,000 reward, no one has been arrested. Police believe that members of the Hungarian community in Melbourne can provide the vital clue to the identity of the people who killed Irma.

     

    This was a brutal crime and as we’ve seen with some cold cases in recent years, it can just take one call, or the smallest piece of information that can bring families some answers. This case can be solved.

     

    You can watch the 60 Minutes interview from Season 2014 about the case here: https://www.9now.com.au/60-minutes/2014 (you need to create a Nine Now account)

     

    John Makita runs and maintains a website https://www.whokilledirma.com.au/ that has lots of information and videos.

     

    If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can phone Lifeline on 13 11 14 or https://www.lifeline.org.au/

     

     If you have any information on the cases covered by this podcast,

    please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
