Who Killed Dr Bogle & Mrs Chandler? five-part podcast series explores one of the most baffling cold cases in the annals of crime. On New Year’s morning, 1963, brilliant physicist Dr Gilbert Bogle and Mrs Margaret Chandler were found dead beside the picturesque Lane Cove River in Sydney, Australia. The police found no evidence to suggest how they had died and the bizarre manner the bodies were covered only added to the mystery. The police immediately suspected Margaret’s husband, Geoffrey Chandler, as the killer. But despite drawing on the expertise of police and forensic agencies worldwide, including the FBI, the coroner could not determine how the victims had met their fate. Six decades on, we present toxicological evidence that couldn’t be explained at the time – evidence that leads to a stunning solution to the case, which the Police Commissioner dubbed “The mystery of the century”.
