Mind Games
This story presented a serious dilemma for Sarah Abo because for the most part it is pure fantasy, and 60 Minutes reporters prefer to deal in facts. But pure fantasy is how to best sum up QAnon, an ever-shifting mega-conspiracy theory that's bizarre and nonsensical. As whacky as it is though, millions of people appear to be caught up in the internet-based cult, including more and more Australians. The dangerous real-world consequences of QAnon, where families are being torn apart, now demand that the rest of us stop scratching our heads in disbelief and start to take much more notice of this strange group.

Tasmanian Devil
The crimes Jamie Curtis committed could not have been more brutal or cruel. He abducted an innocent young couple; tortured and murdered the 22-year-old man, then repeatedly raped his 17-year-old fiancee. Curtis spent 32 years in prison for one of Tasmania's most sadistic attacks, but in 2018 was granted his freedom. Within weeks he had breached the conditions of his release and was back behind bars. Now the parole board has given Curtis another chance, outraging the community and terrifying his surviving victim, who argues he has long given up any right to be free. But as Tara Brown discovers in a painful confrontation, there is one person determined to stand by this devil of a man.

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.
