Investigative podcast lifts the lid on grisly murder case


Chilling new details about one of Australia’s most remarkable legal cases are revealed in a powerful new investigative podcast The Confession, from The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald.

It’s the story of a grisly murder involving a statue of the Virgin Mary, a tin of mangoes and four murder trials that have resulted in no convicted killer.

The seven part series by award-winning former Age investigative journalist Richard Baker delves into the disturbing 2005 murder of Victorian widower Eliah Abdelmessih, 69, and the desperate fight for freedom by Katia Pyliotis, 40.

Featuring exclusive access to witness statements, rare courtroom audio recordings of police being cross examined and fascinating interviews with Katia talking for the first time, The Confession is a harrowing story of what happens when a murder case implodes.

The Confession is available now, with episodes released every Friday on Apple, Spotify and wherever you get your podcasts.
