Schapelle Corby

The Australian Women's Weekly - - Scholarship -

When a 27-year-old Queens­land beau­ti­cian was ar­rested in Bali in 2004 with a body­board bag stuffed with 4.1kg of mar­i­juana, the me­dia in­ter­est was fren­zied. Sen­tenced to 20 years in Bali’s no­to­ri­ous Ker­obokan prison in 2005, Schapelle Corby has al­ways main­tained her in­no­cence. Adding to the spec­u­la­tion was her out­spo­ken fam­ily and ac­cu­sa­tions of bag­gage tam­per­ing. Corby was re­leased from prison in 2014 and re­turned to Australia in 2017.

In 2001, Bradley Mur­doch shot Peter Fal­co­nio and ab­ducted Joanne Lees in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory. She es­caped, but Fal­co­nio has never been found.
