Case 207

Suzanne Armstrong & Susan Bartlett

*** Content Warning: sexual assault ***

In early January 1977, residents of Easey Street in Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Collingwood noticed they hadn’t seen the tenants at number 147 for several days.

Close friends Suzanne Armstrong and Susan Bartlett had recently moved in and made a good first impression, but now something didn’t seem right. Their dog was wandering around the neighbourhood and Suzanne’s toddler son was crying non-stop. A concerned neighbour decided to stop by to check if everything was okay, but nothing could prepare them for what they found inside.
