She was released because they found the baby's clothles exactly as she the mother had described them .
Common sense dictates -much remains of an eight week old baby taken by a large carnivore are likely to be found ?
Dingos like wolves will skin a rabbit before eating it and will do the same with a baby gro.
Although there was even doubt over this as the clothles were found during a search for a climber who had fallen off Uluru .
The local authorities knew there was half tamed dingo out there used to taking food form campers ..
The aborigine tracker stated that the tracks showed a large dingo carrying something going away from the camp .
This was disregarded because the tracker a woman spoke through an interpreter .
The fact is there were out to get this woman .
Suspicion and ignorance had a free rein .
All the nonsense about sacrificial rites and blood in the car .
( it was rust retardant the same as any other car of that make )
There was not one scrap of evidence against this woman .
Edited Sorry Bruce just seen your post
I was in Australia when the controversy was still going on .
I met someone who knew Lindy Chamberlain -he said that girl never killed her baby -she was a very loving mother .
Yet others just jumped straight and said she did it !
Without a smidgin of proof .
Human nature is a funny thing .
People seem to relish witch hunts .
From Dreyfus to the Mccanns
Trial by media is a modern day phenomenon of something that has gone on throughout the ages.
