Lindy Chamberlain - "A Dingo Took My Baby" (Part 1)

Sleuth Be Told

Aug 23 2022 • 42 mins

The phrase "a dingo took my baby" has been used in pop culture for years. It's typically used as a punchline, but where did it come from? In this week's episode, we talk about the surprisingly dark origin of this saying and what happened to the Chamberlain family. Or at least one side of what happened. It seems like a very straightforward but unfortunate story, but it isn't as simple as it seems. We'll breakdown how this case got taken hold of by the media and Lindy ended up in jail for the murder of her daughter in part 2 next week. Episode 43.
