Samantha Knight - Never Forgotten
Listen now
In this episode, reporter Ross Coulthart remembers the chilling case of Samantha Knight, the angelic nine-year-old Bondi schoolgirl, who one day in 1986, vanished. Her disappearance led to one of the largest police investigations in New South Wales history but her body has still not been found. In 2001, the notorious paedophile Michael Guider was charged with Samantha's murder, and six months later pleaded guilty to manslaughter, claiming he hadn't meant to kill the little girl. He has never revealed where he put her body. What happened to Samantha remains her parents, indeed every parent’s, worst nightmare. The original 60 Minutes story: Samantha Knight –  Never Forgotten (2017), was reported by Ross Coulthart and produced by Garry McNab Podcast narrator: Peter Overton Podcast reporter: Ross Coulthart Podcast producers: Liz Little, Helen Lunn and Toula Udowenko Sound Engineering and Design:  Dan McHugh Executive Producer: Kirsty Thomson
