The Adelaide River Murders

The Adelaide River is one of the most crocodile infested rivers in the world . Some of these croc’s are so big they are often described as monster croc’s. 

In today’s episode though , the monsters have two legs and walk on land . In fact , their crime was so awful it seems even the crocodiles weren’t having any part in it.

The day Phu Ngoc Trinh and Ben Mclean met at high school was the start of a friendship that would eventually destroy the lives of four families.

In todays episode I take you through the events that led up to the night two women were thrown off the Adelaide River bridge and left to die in croc infested waters – and the aftermath that led to the two teenagers being charged with murder.
