Crimes NZ - The Jane Furlong cold case

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:25 pm on 9 July 2020

Today we're looking back at one of New Zealand's most mysterious cold cases. 

Auckland teenager and sex worker Jane Furlong went missing from Karangahape Road in 1993. Her murderer has never been brought to justice. 

Jesse is joined by Stuff journalist Kelly Dennett, who's the author of The short life & mysterious death of Jane Furlong

Kelly's book won the prize for best non-fiction at the Ngaio Marsh Awards for New Zealand crime writing last year, and writer Steve Braunias has described her as "New Zealand's best true crime writer".
