Episode Fifteen: Lindy Chamberlain
Listen to our episode here or on our website.

On August 17 1980, 9-week-old Azaria Chamberlain disappeared while on a camping trip with her parents, Lindy and Michael, and her two older brothers. Lindy and Michael claimed she was taken from the family tent by a dingo. Azara's body was never found.

Rumor and suspicion grew quickly around the case, fueled by a lack of understanding of the Chamberlains' Seventh Day Adventist faith and a perception that Lindy Chamberlain was not behaving as a grieving mother should.

The Chamberlain trial was the most publicized in Australian history and is now held up as an example of how the media can adversely affect legal proceedings.
