60 Minutes: October 14, 2018
October 14, 2018
Nine  |  October 14, 2018

As if the 2007 murder of Corryn Rayney wasn’t traumatic and incomprehensible enough for her family, the unrelenting police pursuit of her husband as the perpetrator must be one of the most appalling denials of justice and decency imaginable. Lloyd Rayney was a high-profile Perth barrister who was presumed guilty of the murder almost from the moment his wife’s body was discovered in a bush grave in a city park. But in a special edition of 60 minutes, Tara Brown reports that detectives missed or ignored other vital clues. As a consequence of the flawed investigation, whoever did murder Corryn Rayney remains unknown and unpunished. Lloyd Rayney, on the other hand, is a broken man after being hounded by the WA Police. In 2012, a court found him not guilty of willful murder, with the judge describing the prosecution case as being beset by “improbabilities and uncertainties”. But that doesn’t ease the pain for the man who wants the police to now put aside their prejudices against him, conduct a proper investigation, and find his wife’s killer.
