The Money Trail The macabre discovery of Melissa Caddick's decomposed foot on a beach 400km from where she was last seen in Sydney has done little to quieten speculation about the accused 49-year-old conwoman. Despite forensic examination confirming the body part is hers, some people continue to believe she is still alive and living a life of luxury, financed by the estimated $25 million she is alleged to have fleeced from hapless investors. Reporter Tom Steinfort has been investigating Caddick's disappearance since soon after she went missing in November last year. On 60 Minutes he reveals startling new evidence gathered after following the extensive money trail. It's information that is sure to provide another major twist in this already intriguing case. Risque Business Posting highly provocative, often explicit photos and videos of yourself on the internet for the pleasure of thousands, and sometimes millions of anonymous oglers, is not most people's idea of a smart thing to do. So why then are so many young Australian women signing up to show off on X-rated social media sites like OnlyFans? Well they say it's an easy way to a fast fortune. They also claim they're not being exploited because they control what they reveal, and what it costs. With so much skin in the game, these women are setting themselves up for life. But as Sarah Abo reports, being risque is not entirely risk-free.

The Princess Diaries The disturbing saga engulfing the royal family of Dubai has taken another incredible twist. Princess Latifa, the 35-year-old daughter of the Emirates' ruler Sheikh Mohammed al-Maktoum, who claims she is being held hostage by her father, has managed to smuggle secret video diaries out of her palace prison. In the recordings she describes the hell she's endured since attempting - but failing - to flee Dubai almost four years ago. Tom Steinfort, whose multiple reports for 60 Minutes about the princess have received international attention, says Latifa's videos are a positive development because they reveal proof of life. They also add weight to efforts by the United Nations seeking clarification from Dubai about her welfare. Despite these encouraging signs though, Latifa's supporters remain concerned that her latest attempt to draw attention to her plight may have exposed her to dangerous repercussions. Out of Control At the height of Britney Spears' fame, exclusive paparazzi shots of the pop star sold for up to a million dollars. With ridiculous money like that on offer, it's little wonder she became the most hunted celebrity on the planet. It's also not surprising the never-ending attention crippled her. In 2008, Britney's erratic behaviour and tumultuous personal life led to a very controversial court order which gave her father, Jamie Spears, control over every part of his daughter's life, including the tens of millions of dollars she earned as one of the world's most popular singers. Effectively, Britney went from performer to prisoner. Thirteen years on, the conservatorship, as it's called, is still in place, but it seems Britney, who turns 40 this year, now wants her father to back off. As Karl Stefanovic reports, so do many of her adoring fans who've started an extraordinary movement to set her free.
