On September 13, 1980, 19-year-old Annette Deverell disappeared after a night out dancing with friends. Two years later her remains were found in bush 30 minutes from where she was last seen. Four grief-filled decades later, Annette’s mother can’t shake the terrible suspicion that someone in her town knows something about her death. In this four-part true crime podcast, journalist Carla Hildebrandt opens the cold case file on the death of Annette Deverell - a gruesome mystery that has haunted a seaside town for decades. The WA government has since put up a $250,000 bounty for information that could help solve the case and offered immunity from prosecution if the informant was not directly responsible for Annette’s death. Annette's family were relieved in February 2020 to hear the case would be re-investigated by detectives.
