Subscribe to Crime X+ today. Did the police and prosecution pursuing Kathleen Folbigg for murder rely on a pseudo-scientific theory to explain her children’s deaths - and did that lead them to overlook other possible explanations? A second woman with a story that is eerily similar to Folbigg’s also shares her devastation at being denied access to her daughter after being labeled a child-killer due to the same, now-discredited theory.

Subscribe to Crime X+ today. One of the main reasons Kathleen Folbigg was found guilty for the deaths of her four children, was her diary entries. Kathleen kept diaries over the decade of her children dying, and the entries were used as circumstantial evidence in the 2003 trial. And, some of them are harrowing. But - were they taken out of context? We hear Kathleen Folbigg answer questions about what she really meant in these entries. We also meet a linguistic expert who has worked for the CIA and FBI who has developed a computer program, to analyse texts for evidence of guilt, authenticity, h ..read more

Laura, the fourth child to die, had an obvious cause of death, myocarditis from a viral infection. Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle which can cause fatal arrhythmias, especially if you have a mutation on the gene that regulates heart rhythm. And it turns out - she did. Scientific experts face off against the law, forcing a new inquiry. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information ..read more
