CrimeLapse True Crime
On January 9th 2008, a woman in New Zealand called 111, the emergency services line. While on the call she can be heard desperately trying to open her daughters locked bedroom door. She can hear a rhythmic thumping sound from the room and she is panicking. She manages to open it and screams “He’s killed her!” before the door can be heard slamming shut.
The case highlighted the outdated legal defence of provocation, and brought much needed change to the country.
