Under Investigation with Liz Hayes returns to Nine
Under Investigation with Liz Hayes returns on Wednesday, February 8, at 9pm on Nine and 9Now.
Joining Liz Hayes at the War Table are Australia’s leading experts and investigators. Together they will reopen and reinvestigate the country’s most shocking crimes.
The award-winning investigative journalist will work with a new team of criminal and forensic experts to examine eight compelling cold cases. There is fresh evidence, exclusive witnesses – and extraordinary revelations.
Under Investigation begins with an ominous foreign mystery. Loved-up couple Ray and Jennie Kehlet join colleague Graham “Grumpy” Milne on a gold prospecting trip to the red heart of Western Australia.
Three people go out but only one comes back. Then a body is found in a remote mine shaft. With a senior member of the police investigation team joining our panel of UI experts, the case is being opened up like never before.
UI will also investigate the strange case of “Willi” Koeppen, Australia’s first famous TV chef, who disappeared without a trace in 1976. He owned one of Australia’s most celebrated restaurants, patronized by the rich and famous, from prime ministers to pop stars. With a real-life “Cluedo” cast of suspects, our UI experts trace Koeppen’s final hours and come to a shocking but inescapable conclusion.
The program also examines a legal scandal without parallel in the Western world: the case of South Australia’s chief forensic officer, Dr Colin Manock, who for more than 30 years has carried out thousands of autopsies and given expert evidence in hundreds of cases without the key specialist qualification. Innocents have been jailed, potential murderers are free – and as revealed by UI, senior members of South Australia’s criminal justice system knew the truth.
December 12, 2022 will forever be marked as one of the most brutal days in Australian history, when two young police officers attending a routine missing persons investigation were ambushed and murdered in cold blood on a remote Queensland property .
The killers, radicalized online by wacky conspiracy theories, visited their murderous ideology in the real world. In the first major televised analysis of this shocking crime, Under Investigation’s team investigates what many say is the terrifying new front of domestic terrorism.
Hayes said, “I am grateful that Under Investigation continues to attract the nation’s most skilled criminal experts to dissect and decode both decades-old and recent unsolved crimes.
“A unique combination of new technology, people’s yearning desire to tell their truth, and our unwavering commitment to comprehensive analysis appears to be pioneering these cases. Absolutely everything is for investigation.”
