Amber Haigh and Janelle Goodwin

Season 1, Ep. 82

Robbie and Amber spoke on the phone regularly, but fell out of touch as time went on. But then one day, all of a sudden, Amber was moving into Robbie’s house, which was a surprise to him.


He asked his Mum, Anne, why Amber was there, was she boarding with them now or something? Anne said words to the effect of ‘you know what your father’s like...”


Join Shaun and Chloe as they cover the disappearance of Amber Haigh and the death of Janelle Goodwin, two women who were involved with the same man, Robert Geeves.

And as they play out, we’ll get to the bottom of whether there’s any truth to these tales or if they’re purely myths.In this first episode, we explore the rumours and realities of famed Italian furniture salesman, Franco Cozzo, and the gun-toting escapades of Melbourne grandmother, Ava Estelle.SOURCESArticles referred to in audio, plus:https://executivesuccessau.wordpress.com/2012/02/13/the-advertising-failures-of-franzo-cozzo-executive-success-australia/https://www.theurbanlist.com/melbourne/a-list/10-more-of-melbournes-best-urban-legendsThe Age (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) 08 Feb 1992, Sathttps://www.snopes.com/fact-check/grambo/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Bloodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiQzUEc_FmI - Golden Girls themehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kbdpdr4u2fU - Rambo themehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aTO6Iv4f3A - Franco ad

  • 83. Thankyou & Goodbye

    06:08
    We have decided to finish up making episodes for True Blue Crime.This will undoubtedly be a surprise and disappointing for many people, but we want to finish things on our terms and now feels like the right time to do that.It’s a decision that we don't take lightly and we’ve been discussing for a while now, and we’ve reached it together.When we started this show, we committed to ten episodes, and didn’t expect anyone outside of our partners, family and friends to listen to it. We were stunned when the downloads kept going up and more and more people were tuning in.  Now we feel that we’ve taken the show in its current format with our current resources as far as we can.It's been a blast making these episodes for you all. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening, giving our show a chance, and following us throughout our journey. Shaun & Chloe
