A Lovely Drink: The Disappearance of Lynette Dawson

In Episode 287

It’s been nearly 40 years since young wife and mother Lynette Dawson disappeared from her New South Wales home. Lynette’s last known conversation was with her mother. On the morning of January 8, 1982, her mother called to plan an outing to a local beach. Lynette agreed, but she was nowhere to be found when her mother arrived.

Over the years, as Lynette remained missing, suspicions landed on her husband, Chris Dawson.  His behavior leading up to and following his wife’s disappearance was improper and offensive.  Lynette was not reported missing for six weeks and she was quickly replaced by his teen-aged lover.  Still, the investigation did not lead to any arrests.

Finally, the case was reopened in 2015. Investigators gathered evidence for a case against Lynette’s husband and a true crime podcast, “Teacher’s Pet,” put together the case with witness interviews and well-supported theories.

Join us at the quiet end today for A Lovely Drink. This is a cold case, surrounded by years of deception and speculation, that may finally be approaching a conclusion.
