Next Monday on Four Corners, ‘Trial and Error?’ – an investigation that delves into one of Australia’s longest running and most controversial murder cases.
In late 2008, Gordon Wood was sent to jail for 17 years for the murder of his girlfriend, former model Caroline Byrne. The jury accepted the prosecution’s case that Gordon Wood had picked up his girlfriend and thrown her, spear-like, over the edge of a cliff at Sydney’s notorious ‘The Gap’. The case is currently being appealed and key expert evidence given at the trial is being re-examined.
Sixteen years after Caroline Byrne was found dead, the question once again being asked is: did she suicide or was she murdered?
‘Trial and Error?’, presented by Kerry O’Brien, goes to air on Monday 31st October at 8.30pm. It is replayed on Tuesday 1st November at 11.35pm. It can also be seen on ABC News 24 at 8.00pm on Saturdays.
