Episode 14 – Zahra Baker

In this episode we tell the very sad story of a little Australian girl, 10-year-old Zahra Baker, and how a callous woman who was supposed to protect her, murdered her, dismembered her body and scattered the body parts.

We will travel from Wagga Wagga in Australia where Zahra was born, to North Carolina in America, where she was murdered.

This story is full of lies and deceptions, but in the end, justice was server for little Zahra.  Or was it?

    Emily has been changed forever. She was so completely destroyed by the murder of her first born child and as a result her relationship fell apart. When the news of Zahras murder broke all of us who know Emily were sent requests to deny any press interviews because Emily wanted to be the one to speak on her childs behalf.

    Emily has two other truly beautiful children from a marriage that was dissolved before Zaharas murder happened but the father of her other two children gave her endless love and support.

    Today Emily still feels the painful loss of Zahra. I am someone who met and knew Emily in 1999, not much after Emily and Adam spilt up. and I remained in contact with her for a number of years.

    I want to thank you for so respectfully telling this story.
