Wrong Skin, an Investigation

Monday 16th July / posted by Danae Gibson

A new Fairfax-produced investigative podcast series titled Wrong Skin has just been launched.

It revolves around a real-life cold case of a murdered 24 year-old Aboriginal woman, found under a bush 8 months after she went missing, and a missing 24 year-old Aboriginal man, presumed dead,  in Looma in the Kimberley in 1994 – that is now being reopened as new evidence comes to light.

At first this seems like it’s a cut and dried and violent crime against a woman.  And they happen so frequently that we’re almost blasé about it.  But there is far more to the story that involves a forbidden relationship and native title.

RTR FM's Jane Hebiton spoke to The Age’s Walkley award-winning investigative journalist Richard Baker who narrated the podcast and was a driving force behind the investigation.
