The case involving the death of an Australian infant whose mother famously said a dingo took from the family’s tent during a trip to the Australian outback, is being reopened for the fourth time.
According to The Australian, the case is being reopened because new information about recent dingo attacks was given to a coroner by the attorneys for Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, who was found guilty in 1982 of murdering her then 9-week-old daughter, Azaria, in 1980.
That conviction was later overturned after a piece of Azaria’s clothing was found near a dingo den, AFP notes. The child’s body was never found.
The new inquest involving the case, which was the subject of the movie “A Cry in the Dark” starring Meryl Streep, will begin in February.
Among the incidents being presented: a 9-year-old boy was mauled to death in 2001 by two dingoes, and a 4-year-old girl was harmed in 2007.
