Melissa Caddick: Fraudster's death to remain a mystery
Warning: This story contains graphic content.
We finally know what happened in the missing persons investigation that captured a nation. Melissa Caddick, the fraudster who stole $23 million from her closest family and friends, is dead.
So said the deputy state coroner, who handed down her report last week. But how did she come to this finding? Until now, all we knew was that Caddick’s right foot had washed up on the shores of a remote beach. This was shortly after she went missing, nearly two and a half years ago.
Today, investigative reporter Kate McClymont joins Samantha Selinger-Morris on The Age and SMH daily news podcast Please Explain to discuss what we now know - and what we’ll never know - about what happened to Melissa Caddick.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

But before long, Mark and Rose and their two young children find themselves in a world of bizarre rituals and extreme beliefs, under the influence of a charismatic leader. They are made virtual slaves, their family shuffled around the world to prevent them from escaping.
