Summary When Australian model Caroline Byrne's crumpled body was discovered at the base of a cliff known as The Gap, a famous Sydney landmark and popular suicide spot, it was easy for both the public and police to assume her death was suicide. As a result; no crime scene was established, no measurements or photographs were taken, and no police log books recorded the events surrounding the recovery of her body. And yet forensic science would eventually prove that she could not possibly have landed in the place her body was found - wedged head-first into a crevice almost nine metres from the edge of the cliff - if she had jumped. Evidence for Murder sets out a behind-the-scenes narrative of the investigation and the trial, chronicling the police investigation and detailing the science behind the forensic evidence
