I remember all this happening when I was a child – I never thought Lindy did it. I blame the dingo. I have Lindy’s book somewhere here too
IT will go down as Australia’s greatest mystery. The death of Azaria Chamberlain, 30 years ago, remains unsolved. The police file is still officially open.
The third and final inquest in 1995 recorded the cause and manner of Azaria’s death as “unknown”. Two previous inquiries raised the possibility of death by dingo, followed by human intervention.
More questions. Like so much else about the case, the answers depends on what you want to believe.
Lindy Chamberlain’s conviction for murder was overturned, as was Michael’s for being an accessory. She didn’t do it. It is accepted that a dingo did.
But how did the dingo rip Azaria from a bassinet in her family’s tent and drag her over the sand, then remove her body from her buttoned jumpsuit and turn the singlet, which was inside the jumpsuit, inside out?
And then leave the baby’s matinee jacket, which was found six years later 153m away, without opening the top button?
