TRUE CRIME

TRUE CRIME

Friday 26 August 2016, 3:30pm—4:30pm

Why do true crime stories hold so much fascination for readers and viewers? Two recent books, Steve Braunias's The Scene of the Crime, and Michael Bennett's In Dark Places, examine high-profile NZ murder cases and trials. And the Serial podcast and Making a Murderer television series have made armchair jurors of us all. Jarrod Gilbert talks to Steve Braunias and Tim McKinnel, the investigator behind the Teina Pora case, about false confessions, and the nature and characteristics of homicide.
