Trace Podcast

The Victorian Coroner has reopened the investigation into the 38-year-old cold case of Maria James, whose murder was the subject of the ABC's Trace podcast series.
  • A coronial inquest in 1982 found Maria James was murdered by "a person unknown"
  • New evidence uncovered by the ABC's Trace podcast cast fresh light on the case
  • The coroner's re-investigation is only possible because of new laws passed in October

Acting State Coroner Iain West said this morning that he would set aside the finding of a 1982 inquest that found Ms James was murdered by "a person unknown".

Just finished Bear Brook and I have to say it''s excellent. Six part podcast that dates back to the early 80s when 2 bodies were found in barrells in the woods in New Hampshire.

DNA tech (the same that caught the East Area Rapist) solves this 30-odd years later.

Excellently researched and presented.

Anybody else noticed Scotty Morrison with his federal election pitch has hijacked the true crime podcast airwaves? Every single one I listened to today. And he isn't sharing.

TRUE CRIME PODS.


Hollywood & Crime
Hollywood & Crime specializes in cases from Hollywood’s golden age, including what might be the most complete investigation of the Black Dahlia, with 26 episodes fully dedicated to what’s probably Hollywood’s most notorious murder. But don’t fret, the team still goes deep on other Tinseltown crimes.
Episodes: 40
Length: 1 hour or less
Have been binging this the last week.


I have listened to the Black Dahlia and associated cases. I wasnt aware of 5 other murders within a short time span of the Elizabeth Short murder. This section looks at all of the cases , then they get a 21st century perspective on the unsolved cases.

I found it really interesting and well presented. Having read the James Ellroy book about 25 years ago I may have to go back and read it again
