On a hot summer night in 1986, beautiful young Sydney nurse Anita Cobby alighted from a train at Blacktown station - and set off to a horrific fate. The recovery of her ravaged body two days later sparked Australia's greatest police manhunt and ignited unprecedented fury and outrage across the nation.
Someone Else's Daughter traces the life and brutal death of Anita Cobby. It tells the tale of Grace and Garry, her loving parents, who conducted themselves with unfailing bravery and dignity throughout their terrible ordeal. It details the epic investigative work of a tireless and dedicated band of detectives, as well as revealing the shocking stories behind the killers, five vicious men from violent backgrounds. And it talks of the media stars and political highflyers, as well as the ordinary citizens who became embroiled in Australia's crime of the century.
Tragic and terrifying, Someone Else's Daughter is a story that no-one will ever forget.
"I could wish it was someone else's daughter but I can't, can I? They would then have to go through what we're going through." - Garry Lynch, Anita Cobby's father.
