Case 231

Anna-Jane Cheney

In 1994, 29-year-old Adelaide lawyer Anna-Jane Cheney was looking forward to her dream wedding. But just six weeks before she was due to walk down the aisle, her fiancè Henry Keogh called paramedics to report that he’d found Anna-Jane lying unconscious in the bath of their Magill home. 

Police ruled Anna-Jane’s untimely and unexplained death a tragic accident, but evidence soon began to emerge that suggested otherwise.
