 You’ll hear how a car provided vital clues that helped solve a murder.

Latest episode: Kerryn Tate

Episode Five of the Cold Case Western Australia podcast series examines the 1979 murder of 22-year-old Kerryn Tate at Karragullen, an horrific crime which the media at the time dubbed 'The Bonfire Murder'.

Kerryn was beaten to death with a large piece of wood, then her body placed on a tree stump which was set on fire. When firefighters arrived her body was burnt beyond recognition.

Thanks to advances in DNA technology, Special Crime Squad investigators now have a full DNA profile from the crime scene - belonging to a unknown male who is not on any databases.

Investigators have now turned to genetic genealogy in the search for Kerryn's killer.

Kerryn's family has waited more than 44 years for answers, but they still desperately want to know why she was killed and who was responsible.
