Tonight | The Murder of Lyn Dawson on Channel 9 and 9Now

The Murder of Lyn Dawson on Channel 9 – Uncover the full story of Lynette Dawson’s disappearance when the true-crime series The Murder of Lyn Dawson premieres this Sunday at 8pm on Channel 9 and 9Now. 

In January 1982, when Lynette Dawson, a loving mother and wife, vanished, her husband, Christopher Dawson, claimed that she had called him and told him she needed time away. While almost everyone, including the police, believed his story, those closest to Lynette knew it didn’t add up and that she would have never abandoned her two little girls. 

Over two Sunday nights, this special program presents revelations about the 40-year fight for justice by those who never wavered in their belief that Lynette didn’t walk out on her family. 

The Murder of Lyn Dawson is told through Chris and Lyn’s daughter Shanelle, the detective who helped bring Dawson to justice, Damian Loone, and the determined reporter who put the case in the spotlight with his viral podcast The Teacher’s Pet, Hedley Thomas. 

At the heart of the series is Shanelle Dawson, as she realises that what she has been told her whole life is a lie, and her journey towards the truth: that her mother loved her and would never have left on her own free will. In embracing this reality, Shanelle must also come to terms with the fact that her beloved father is a liar and a murderer. 

A mixture of archival imagery, recreations, news sources and interviews pieces together the case from the time Lynette went missing to the remaining unanswered question: where is her body? And will Dawson ever admit to his awful crimes?
