Austalian mystery death solved after 30 years
NBC News — The 32 year old mystery surrounding the death of a nine week old Australian baby may finally be over tuesday when a coroner ruled that a dingo was responsible for the child's death. Azaria Chamberlain disappeared from her family's campsite in August of 1980. The body was never found.
Her parents always maintained she was taken by a wild dog native to Australia called a dingo. But her mother Lindy was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. That conviction was eventually overturned. The story of Azaria Chamberlain attracted global attention and was the subject of an acclaimed movie called "A Cry in the Dark" starring Meryl Streep as Lindy.
