Casefile Presents: The Invisible Hand

When the acclaimed Silent Waves podcast was released on our Casefile Presents network in 2019, I knew that the show’s co-creator and producer Georgina Savage must have another story she needed to tell.  That’s when Georgina told me about The Invisible Hand, an ambitious and somewhat dangerous pitch for a podcast.   The podcast series would involve travel to South Africa and Mozambique, hiring a local fixer to ensure the safety of those involved - to tell a story that goes beyond the popular headlines - to document it from a never before heard angle. And so The Invisible Hand came to fruition. Join Georgina Savage as she returns to her birth country of South Africa, where her cousin’s family live deep in the bush of the Kruger National Park - fighting on the front lines of a conservation war against rhino poaching.   Go behind the headlines with Georgina as she is given unique access and immerses herself in the lives of individuals connected to the illegal trade, including the men who poach rhinos, in an attempt to understand the personal circumstances of those entangled in a crisis. Stay tuned to hear the show’s trailer. And while you’re listening, be sure to search for The Invisible Hand wherever you get your podcasts and hit the follow button. You can also listen on the website www.invisiblehandpodcast.com.

Case 72: Wilhelmina Kruger & Anna Dowlingkoa

For several weeks, 56-year-old Wilhelmina Kruger was unable to shake the feeling she was being watched.

It turned out Wilhelmina’s suspicions were right. The following morning, her mutilated body was found at the bottom of the basement stairs in what was considered one of the most brutal attacks in New South Wales history. ---  Episode narrated by the Anonymous Host Researched and written by Milly Raso For all credits and sources please visit casefilepodcast.com/case-72-wilhelmina-kruger-and-anna-dowlingkoa

Case 31: The Killer Couple

Over a five-week period in 1986, four young women went missing from around Perth in Western Australia. 22-year-old Mary Neilson, 15-year-old Susannah Candy, 31-year-old Noelene Patterson and 21-year-old Denise Brown all disappeared without a trace, but police were sceptical that some were runaways and no links were drawn between the missing women. That was until November 10 1986, when a man standing outside a vacuum cleaner store was suddenly approached by a hysterical, barefoot young woman.

Case 28: Lindsay Buziak

24-year-old Lindsay Buziak loved her job as a Vancouver Island real estate agent and was looking forward to carving an impressive career for herself. So in early 2008, she was eager to please when she received a phone call from a woman who had recently relocated to the area and wanted Lindsay’s help in finding a one million dollar property that was available immediately.  On February 2, Lindsay organised to meet the woman and her husband at a house in the suburb of Saanich. She was a little sceptical as to why the couple had sought her help in particular and as a safety precaution, she asked her boyfriend Jason Zailo to wait in his car outside. It turned out that Lindsay was right to be concerned. For all credits and sources please visit casefilepodcast.com/case-28-lindsay-buziak

It would be a shame if anything happened to your sweet little Prue, wouldn’t it”.

Case 20: Stoni Blair & Stephen Berry

The details of this case are extremely difficult to hear. Extreme child abuse and child murder are involved. This episode won't be for everybody. There is far more courtroom audio than narration. It is a one-off for this episode. It is not something that will be a regular feature in the future. The courtroom confession is detailed and horrific. Listener discretion is advised.

Case 19: Snowtown

Living in Australia, I had heard of the Snowtown case. I knew it as the bodies in the barrels case. But that’s all I knew. I had no idea about the who, the what, the why, or the when. So I didn’t know it was the worst case of serial killing in Australia’s history, involving torture and dismemberment. None of the murder victims are children. However, child sexual abuse is prominent throughout. It is a deeply disturbing, depraved case. I didn’t know any of that when I started looking into Snowtown, but now you do, and you can make an informed decision if you want to listen or not.

The crime scene was described as looking more like the set of a horror movie, than real life. It is one of the most horrific crimes ever committed. Not only did it shock the small town of Aberdeen in country NSW, where the crime occurred, it shocked the entire nation of Australia and parts of the world.

Case 09: Jonathan Luna

He was implicated in a case of missing money from a courthouse evidence vault. He was facing allegations of misconduct and illegal handling of a witness in a major drug trafficking trial, which lead to the judge ordering a federal investigation. One way to stop that federal investigation would be to come up with a quick plea deal to end the case. One problem, there was no way to do the plea deal without violating federal law. And unfortunately, for US assistant attorney Jonathan Luna things were about to get worse. Much, much worse. For all credits and sources please visit casefilepodcast.com/case-09-jonathan-luna
