Australian Story: The Teacher's Wife
Lyn's husband Chris, a PE teacher, always insisted she abandoned him and their two young daughters to “sort things out”. Days later he moved his teenage lover into the family home. Two coroners concluded Chris Dawson murdered his wife but to this day, he has never been prosecuted. The case has gripped audiences around the world since the release of a new podcast, The Teacher’s Pet, by investigative journalist Hedley Thomas. Australian Story first covered the story in 2003, and this next chapter features exclusive interviews with friends and family of Lyn Dawson and those charged with enacting justice, both then and now.
