Description

Nearly 37 years after Lyn Dawson disappeared, police have arrested Chris Dawson over the alleged murder of his wife, taking him into custody and preparing his extradition to Sydney where he will face court. When the knock on the door came, the 70-year-old was calm. The timing may have been a surprise, but he’d known for a long time that this day may come. Calling the matter "a cold case murder", the magistrate denied Dawson's application for bail citing a high flight risk, and said the crown alleged domestic violence allegations against Chris Dawson would be raised in evidence, as well as testimony from Joanne Curtis. But Dawson's family believe he will be cleared, releasing a statement saying that he is innocent and that there is clear and uncontested evidence that Lyn Dawson was alive long after she left her husband and daughters.

I'm so relieved for Lyn's fam & friends all who loved her & waited all these years. Plus I'm also relieved that the individual I believe is the perpetrator is still alive to be processed through the justice system. Yes recovery of her remains would mean so much to her family.

I do really hope Dawson will reveal where Lyn's body is . . that would be the icing on the cake!
