Helen Thomas

In 1977, Suzanne Armstrong and Susan Bartlett were savagely murdered in their house on Easey Street, Collingwood. Although police established a list of more than 100 ‘persons of interest’, the case became one of the most infamous unsolved crimes in Melbourne.

Helen Thomas is a journalist, manager of ABC News Radio, and author of five books. She was a cub reporter at The Age when the murders were committed and now, forty-two years on, has re-examined the cold case – chasing down new leads, talking to family members, neighbours, detectives, and journalists. Join her as she discusses the case and what she has uncovered.
