The brutal rape and murder of two fifteen-year-old friends in the Wanda Beach sand dunes in 1965 is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most famous cold cases. For many years now, there have been three prime suspects in the murders of Christine Sharrock and Marianne Schmidt. These are:
Alan Raymond Bassett – convicted in 1966 for the murder of Carolyn Orphin
Derek Ernest Percy – one of Australia’s most notorious child killers and
Christopher Bernard Wilder – aka America’s ‘Beauty Queen Killer’
The Wanda Beach Killer meticulously presents and examines the evidence against each of these suspects, leaving little, if any, doubt as to the murderer’s identity.
