The man who wasn't there
On the Australia Day National Holiday in January 2009 Bob Chappell went missing from the yacht, the Four Winds, that he and his partner Sue Neill-Fraser were preparing for ocean cruising. The yacht was moored on the Derwent River in Tasmania (an island State of Australia). In 2010 Sue was convicted for his murder and she remains in prison.In the dozen years since Bob's disappearance there have been books and TV documentaries about the case. Sue has an ever faithful, committed group of supporters.However, there are many people (some of them with great influence) who are convinced that she killed him.In August 2021 a series of papers exposing a number of problems with the police investigation, non-disclosure of important information, and errors at the trial were tabled in the Upper House of the Tasmanian Parliament.This six episode podcast series tells how it all went so wrong and what needs to be done.
