Crimes NZ: The murder of Kirsty Bentley

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:21 pm on 23 April 2020

Today we are discussing one of the most high-profile cold cases in New Zealand’s history - the murder of Canterbury teenager, Kirsty Bentley.

The 15-year-old from Ashburton went missing after taking her dog for a walk on New Year's Eve in 1998, and her body was found just over two weeks later.

The case has never been solved.

We talk to Stuff journalist, Blair Ensor, who recently completed an investigative piece on the case with fellow Stuff journalist, Martin van Beynen.
