I’d demolish the house and put life size statues of Karen and her kids there instead.
I'm amazed the house is still standing. The long driveway off a side road off the Brand Hwy is probably enough to keep the ghouls who want to leer at it away but I can't imagine any real estate agent's gonna find too many people who would ever be willing to buy the house

Someone on another thread here said there was people living in there, I don't know if renting or buying. I'm not overly sensitive but I'd be afraid there might be echoes or vibrations of fear and extreme violence bouncing off the walls in there for a long time, I couldn't live in it.

Some places you can walk in to and know straight away, something awful happened and you need to get out. I think that's probably one of those houses.

Totally agree!! When we were looking for a new home, we attended a home open, soon as I entered the house I was overcome by extreme foreboding fear, by the time I got the kitchen I had to run out and so didn't see all the house. Don't know what happened at that house, but it took me weeks to get over that feeling! It was bizarre.

Casefile just covered this crime and there was one thing that kept throwing me off. The podcast kept talking about Amara being sexually assaulted as if it was confirmed.

Correct me if I'm wrong but officially that's still rumour right? I know in this case it's a rumour that's pretty much considered fact but because of the suppression orders that still falls under speculation. Especially weird when they specifically talked about the suppression orders yet kept talking about what happened to Amara which is officially suppressed so the only way they could know about that is if they're treating rumours as fact
Haven't got around to that episode yet, I'll have to soon. When I've listened to a Casefile episode I've seen covered on a true crime show(or multiple ones) before, Casefile almost always gives far more insight and detail into the story.

The Belanglo episodes were incredible, I thought I knew all there was to know about it and had put it off for a while for that reason.😯

I was somewhat disappointed by it, it was more or less a copy of the Crime Investigation Australia episode, with a bit more after the sentence that's happened in the last 14 years.

Danny Is the least remembered. As Karen’s sister said, he left Queensland in December and by February, he was dead. I think it is because he was a boy and also from some he gets blamed for the deaths of Karen and the girls, even though he didn’t know what was about to happen, had no time to react, and was a teenage boy versus a grown axe wielding homicidal maniac.

I found that too. In places it was word for word the CIA episode script and, in some cases, quite literally describing the CIA re-enactments. Casefile did quite a few episodes in that style early on and it kind of feels like an early Casefile episode. It wasn't bad but it didn't really provide much new information beyond what you already know if you've seen CIA

I was 11 at the time, still to this day whenever I hear or think of the Greenough murders the first thing that comes into my mind is an outdoor swing set, its the thing I seem to remember from the various news stations and perhaps newspaper from back at that time. Whether my memory is correct or not I can't be certain, but thats just what I seem to always recall.

I was reading the Wikipedia and noticed a disturbing (previously unreleased) detail under the “Crime” section.
The citation link no longer works so I don’t know if it’s legit.

It might be because I'd seen that information somewhere else before. Of course that doesn't mean what I saw was absolutely without doubt, true.

I hadn't actually heard of this case before, the sentence given makes the whole thing even more horrific.

Reminded me of this case that I saw a documentary on a few months ago - was a different jurisdiction and 15 years earlier but at least the sentence was compatible with community expectations.

Another detail I think is suppressed, look at the house, does it really look like it has 4 bedrooms? I'd think not, and that Amara and Katrina shared a room, and one probably witnessed the murder of the other.

I doubt the size of the house is suppressed, especially as it still exists TODAY and public property records are available.
thoughts, Kurve ?
I don't think that would be suppressed, the actual address I'm not even sure about but given people might live there it's probably not cool to post what it is.
