Episode 18 – Beaumont Children

This case of the Beaumont Children is often called the case that took the innocence of Australia and remains one of Australia’s most infamous cold cases.

Jane, 9, Arnna 7 and 4-year-old Grant waved goodbye to their mother on Australia Day 1966 as they journeyed to the local beach and never returned home again.

In this episode we discuss the day of their disappearance, the investigation and the suspects of the case.

For over 5 decades this mystery has cast a dark shadow over Australia.

    I remember this case even though I live in the UK. I was born in 1962 and would be the same age as Grant Beaumont. I recall hearing about it as a young child and asking my parents about it.I have since read about it and I have to say that the photo fit does not look like Phipps but is an extremely good likeness of Arthur Stanley Brown who died in prison in 2002 I believe. I understand he has no living relatives but surely this should be investigated more thoroughly.

    I remember the Beaumont case from the 60s even though I live in the UK. What I don’t understand is the photo fit is not of Harry Phipps. It is very clearly Arthur Stanley Brown who I believe died in prison in 2002.
