UPDATE! Dingo! | New Inquest For "A Dingo Ate My Baby!" Case

Update, June 12, 2012: The dingo did it!


I'm now convinced this story will still be playing out in the 27th century:
A new inquest into the disappearance of Azaria Chamberlain will begin on February 24, Fairfax media reports. 
Fairfax says Northern Territory Coroner Elizabeth Morris will conduct the inquest into the death of Azaria, who was nine-weeks-old when she disappeared from her parents' tent at Uluru (Ayers Rock) in 1980. 
Azaria's mother Lindy said she saw a dingo leave the tent, a claim that was greeted sceptically by many in a case that gripped the attention of the nation. 
Fairfax says that Ms Morris is reopening the inquiry mainly because of information provided by the Chamberlains' legal counsel regarding dingo attacks since Azaria's disappearance.
Information regarding dingo attacks since? Interesting. Maybe they found a dingo den full of baby carcasses...

• Hilarious picture came from here.


  1. So let me get this straight..... people's dogs go nuts and drag kids off and maul them to death but they just couldn't believe that a wild animal that hunts for food every day could do this? Seriously? Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't but if the whole case was based on "a dingo would never kill a baby" that is HORRIBLE police work.

  2. There were a lot of questions, but there was definitely crappy police work.
