7NEWS Spotlight on Channel 7 – The Truth About Amy. Gripping investigation unveils fresh evidence in cold case ahead of new true crime podcast.

On a wintry Thursday afternoon, in a rural weatherboard home, 24-year-old mother Amy Wensley met her tragic end by a single gunshot.

Outside in the driveway, her two young daughters were waiting patiently in the car to head to their grandma’s house for a sleepover.

Uniformed constables first on the scene deemed Amy’s death suspicious, but detectives who arrived soon after were quick to categorise Amy’s death as a suicide.

That seemed impossible by the available evidence and to anyone who actually knew her. To her family, Amy was a devoted mum who put caring for her kids above all else.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Amy’s death and with a $1 million reward on the line, 7NEWS Spotlight joins the hunt for answers in one of Australia’s most intriguing cold cases.

Did someone get away with killing Amy Wensley?

The groundbreaking investigation led by award-winning investigative journalists Liam Bartlett and Alison Sandy will air on Sunday at 8.45pm on Channel 7 and 7plus, ahead of the highly anticipated launch of a new true crime podcast from the team behind The Lady Vanishes and Shot in the Dark.

7NEWS Spotlight tracks down the men who were last to see Amy alive, and forensically re-examines the case with new expert testimony from leading cold case specialists.

With the help of one of the world’s foremost crime scene investigation experts, Scott Roder, 7NEWS Spotlight applies cutting-edge technology to reconstruct the small bedroom where Amy’s body was found, to piece together the critical missing evidence in search of The Truth About Amy.

Liam Bartlett said:

“Amy Wensley was a young mum with hope in her heart and two young children who adored her. She most certainly had everything to live for and any suggestion to the contrary is both ill-informed and nonsensical. 

“All signs pointed to Amy preparing a new start, but that fresh beginning came to an abrupt end in a small bedroom when a shotgun went off in circumstances that can only be described as highly suspicious.”
