Softcover. Who killed Juanita Nielsen? On the morning of July 4, 1975, Juanita Nielsen, a wealthy heiress, Sydney newspaper publisher and anti-development campaigner went to an appointment at a Kings Cross nightclub and simply disappeared. For over 25yrs, the Juanita Nielson case remained one of Australia's great unsolved murder mysteries. This is the true story of that crime and of the characters involved : Loretta Crawford, drag queen and nightclub receptionist, the last person to see Nielsen alive; powerful businessman and property developer, Frank Theeman; his involvement with legendary Kings Cross figures James McCartney Anderson and Abe Saffron; and hired hands like Eddie Trigg for whom Juanita Nielsen's murder was 'no loss to society at all'. It is also a story about greed, police corruption, dirty politics and cover-ups. From failed police investigation to re-investigation more than 2 decades later, from coronial inquest to federal parliamentary inquiry, the book is an unflinching examination of a crime that remains a shameful blot on the administration of justice. It finally puts to rest the mystery of Juanita Nielsen's disappearance. Illus. + Notes on Sources. 275pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
