Arrest in Australian cold case made famous by podcast

Arrest in Australian cold case made famous by podcast

Former Sydney teacher Chris Dawson has been arrested over the 1982 murder of his wife, Lyn.

Earlier this year, the case was taken up by a podcast, The Teacher's Pet, which painstakingly reviewed the evidence, re-interviewed witnesses, and raised allegations that.

Queensland police have confirmed that there has been an arrest on the Gold Coast, and the man will appear in Southport Magistrates Court today.

The 33-year-old mother of two girls vanished from the couple's Bayview home on or around Saturday 9 January 1982.

"We've been waiting for 36 years for something like this to happen", Ms Dawson's niece Renee Simms told Ten Network on Wednesday.

Police arrested Mr Dawson in Queensland and said he would be extradited to NSW.

"NSW detectives will apply for his extradition at his first court appearance".

The 70-year-old former rugby league player will now be extradited to NSW, where he is expected to be charged with murder.

It was additional evidence collected during the investigation period that lead to the arrest.

NSW police commissioner Mick Fuller said Lynette Dawson's family were relieved.

"Statements from witnesses helped us tie pieces of the puzzle together". "Certainly we have solved homicide cases before without identifying the body", he said.

Cook told reporters detectives were "confident" about their case against Mr Dawson despite not knowing where Lyn's body was.

But his arrest yesterday on the Gold Coast was a sudden development of case that has never been far from the headlines during the 37 years that have passed since Lyn's disappearance. However, his bail was immediately denied due to the "seriousness of the alleged crime".

In 2015, NSW homicide detectives established Strike Force Scriven to re-investigate the circumstances surrounding Lynette Dawson's disappearance and suspected murder.

Police, who have conducted several digs at the Dawson's Bayview home in Sydney to find Lynette's body, said they have amassed "an enormous amount of evidence".

"For it to finally happen it nearly doesn't seem real yet to me".

He continues to maintain he had nothing to do with his wife's disappearance.

As fans of the podcast will know, her husband Chris, a former rugby player and PE teacher at a local high school has always been suspected of involvement.

In September a team of NSW police spent several days digging areas around the former Dawson family home, including by a swimming pool, where police believed it was possible Ms Dawson had been buried.

"We have no doubt whatsoever that Chris will be found not guilty as he is innocent".
