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".

There was a new episode of Trace today.

ABC has another article online today which I would post but reveals what is in the podcast.

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

I am told there are a couple of good podcasts of late but haven't listened to them yet.


About the dark web. It is ongoing.


The story so far of Theo Hayes. The Belgian Tourist that went missing at Byron Bay. Produced by the Australian that did The Teachers Pet and Who the Hell is Hamish.

True Crime Garage has a new three parter out on Jonbenet Ramsey, it was hugely disturbing more so than anything else I've listened to. I'll be a bit choosier about what I listen to and when in future.

Listened to the Roger Rogerson one recently on a Qantas flight and found it pretty good.

We all know how his crime was unraveled by CCTV but it was interesting to hear the podcaster say that it was a well planned murder but it was unlucky he was captured in the pub with McNamara and his victim.

Still can’t believe someone as experienced and knowledgeable as him had a body resurface from the water...

Got old, lazy and complacent. He murdered and stole from a young man in a sting as if he was garbage to support his celebrity lifestyle, jetted straight out after it to speak at some venue where the gullible pay to hear him talk BS and maybe get a chance to shake his hand.

Jail for the rest of his life and he still won't have copped his right whack. imo.

Listening to that now. It’s the first time I’ve listen to these guys.
bit on the fence with this one, not sure the Captain adds anything.
Can’t believe she was tortured and killed whilst they were upstairs.
My money is on Santa Bill.

I wondered what the Captain was there for initially as well, he first came over as a bit of a stoner and Nic could talk the leg off a chair without him but when he does jump out with a strong opinion, it's a bit of a shock and has some impact.

They think Santa Bill might have done it as well I think, very experienced researchers/podcasters so they might be right imo.

The fact that she said Santa was going to visit her after Christmas.
There was a 911 call from the house 2 days or so before when I believe he was at the party.
The ransom note referenced movies - his wife was a movie critic.
His own daughter was abducted with a friend and the friend was molested 22 years before, to the day and is still unsolved.
Boot prints at the scene.
Similar bear in her room to what he used to carry around.
Alibi was that he was sleeping at home from 10pm (murder was sometime after 1am)
She gave him a vial of glitter, he even had that with him in the operating room when he had his heart surgery.
I think he was considered too old at the time and had had heart surgery 5 months prior.

I've followed this for a long time so it's good to finally see a podcast giving it some attention and going right into Mexico talking to people on the inside. It's suspected a serial killer/killers are crossing the border from El Paso into Ciudad Juarez Mexico and picking women off. Most of them are teenagers come from the country to work in the factories, found dumped in paddocks, on the side of the road or in shallow, mass graves.

It's shaping up to be an excellent podcast, in English.
