A Dingo was responsible for the death of Azaria Chamberlain in 1980, a Northern Territory coroner has found.
Coroner Elizabeth Morris told a packed courtroom today 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.
A smiling Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, flanked by her son Aidan, told the waiting media outside a Darwin court that Australia was a “dangerous country” and her story had now been vindicated.
