Coroner rules that a dingo killed an infant in widely followed 1980 case in Australia

Coroner Elizabeth Morris told a packed courtroom on Tuesday that a dingo was to blame for the attack at Uluru, which originally saw Azaria’s mother Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton jailed for murder and her husband Michael given a suspended sentence for being an accessory after the fact.

Both were later exonerated after a royal commission in 1987.

The case was the subject of the 1988 movie, ‘A Cry in the Dark’ starring Meryl Streep as Lindy Chamberlain.
