Killing Juanita

Ned Kelly Year: 

On 4 July 1975, Juanita Nielsen, a wealthy heiress, Sydney newspaper publisher and anti-development campaigner left an appointment at a Kings Cross nightclub and simply disappeared. For a quarter of a century, the Juanita Nielsen case has remained one of Australia's great unsolved mysteries.

Peter Rees is a journalist who pursued the case of Juanita Nielsen for over twenty-five years, forcing a federal parliamentary inquiry and a secret reopening of the case under the personal orders of the former NSW Police Commissioner, Peter Ryan. He worked in the Canberra Press Gallery for many years, before leaving to write books fulltime.
