Mystery Solved: A Dingo Really Did Take The Baby — VIDEO

Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton Case

One of the greatest legal mysteries is finally solved! An Australian court has ruled that a dingo was responsible for the death of baby Azaria Chamberlain 32 years ago.

The child’s mother, Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, was jailed for three years after she was wrongly convicted of murdering her daughter.

According to the Christian Science Monitor, a coroner found on June 12 that a dingo was responsible for killing infant Azaria Chamberlain, finally bringing justice to Azaria’s parents Lindy and Michael Chamberlain.

“This has been a terrifying battle, bitter at times, but now some healing, and a chance to put our daughter’s spirit to rest,” Michael told reporters after the coroner’s ruling.

“Obviously we are relieved and delighted to come to the end of this saga,” said Lindy.

Baby Azaria disappeared on August 17, 1980 from a tent at a camping ground near Ayers Rock. Her body was never found.

Azaria’s parents had insisted their 9-week-old baby was taken by a dingo, an Australian native wild dog. It was a three-decade fight that grabbed national headlines and inspired the film A Cry in the Dark, starring Meryl Streep as Lindy.

In October of 1982, Lindy was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. Michael was convicted of being an accessory and given a suspended sentence.

Four years later, a child’s jacket was found in a dingo den — the case was re-tried and the family was acquitted.

The coroner Elizabeth Morris ruled that after Lindy placed Azaria in the tent, a dingo or dingoes entered the tent, taking and dragging the baby from the area.

“Please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of your special loved daughter and sister Azaria. I am so sorry for your loss,” Morris said to the family. “Time does not remove the pain and sadness of the death of a child.”

Is that information coming from the article or other sources?
According to the article posted above: “Her body was never found.”. The found a JACKET in the lair – not her body.
