There is only one thing that is synonymous with a shallow grave ... murder. To enshroud a victim in the vastness of Australia's forests, deserts, foreshores offers fewer opportunities of the body being discovered than arguably in any other country in the world. The most common shallow grave is a hole in the sand, usually on a foreshore or in a forest where the soil is thin enough for the assassin to hurriedly dig a plot, and then be on their way before they are caught in the act. But no matter where the places of concealment may be, they all fall into the category of 'shallow graves'.
Read gripping accounts of some of the most bizarre and horrendous murder cases in Australia’s history, including the Read-Luckman murder, the Wales King Murders and the mysterious death of Samantha Knight.
