On a cold wintry evening, in June 1999, Belinda Williams’ 6-year-old daughter, was frightened by the dark, so her mum tucked her back into bed and read her to sleep with fairy tales.
When the child woke the next morning, her mother was not on the bed next to her, she was not in the house. Thirty six year old, Belinda Williams, was nowhere to be found.
Eleven days after Belinda disappeared, bushwalkers discovered her body, dressed only in a nightshirt, dumped in scrub a short distance from her home in the Victorian country town of Buninyong.
Despite a coronial inquest and an extensive police investigation, Belinda William’s murder remains unsolved.
However, in this exclusive investigation, Victoria Police and Million Dollar Murders present new information that Belinda may well have known her killer, or killers and others know information as well.
For Belinda’s family’s sake, it’s time for those people to come forward, with a one million dollar reward on offer, for this final piece of the puzzle, to convict the murderer.
These are some of the toughest cases for detectives to solve. Million Dollar Murders will highlight the tireless effort of police in their investigations of these unsolved cases.
