One of the first paragraphs mentions that Azaria is their first daughter, and at the time of the camping trip is two months old. It then states that they brought their three children on the same camping trip. Can't really be both ways...—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

I cannot seem to find the statement you are quoting. If it were there, it would be incorrect. Feel free to change things like this in the future. Be Bold! Ansell 03:47, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

The statement is correct. Azaria was the first daughter of the Chamberlain's. The other two children were male, making the statement accurate.

The photo says Azaria is with her mother, yet she was two months old when she was killed. No two month old can stand on her two feet only supported by the hands. If supported under their arms, they can touch the ground, but not with straight legs. The baby on the photo is also clearly older, I will guess five-six months. And yes, I know what I am talking about. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:20, 12 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]

When did she come to Australia?[edit]

Did she really live in Australia from the age of only 1? How come she still has such a broad New Zealand accent, like she lived there till she was 25, and only then moved to Oz? -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 12:15, 29 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

her demeanour during the trial[edit]

This is missing in the article but it is the most fascinating thing about her case. She was so collected that the jury could not believe she could be innocent. Compare, which discusses a similar thing at lenght. Does someone have the resources to add this into the article? Moonsell (talk) 21:23, 12 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Idem. Are there any experts out there? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:14, 21 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Was there even a suggestion of some motive?[edit]

So, am I to assume - from omission - that she was convicted of a murder without a motive? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:28, 27 July 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Picture of the Matinee Jacket and Jump suit[edit]

Forensic Pathologist.[edit]

The ABC ran a doco on the English pathologist that the NT prosecutors used. In fact he was not a member of any pathology body, at the time of the trial, and probably never was. He claimed the blood in the car's carpet contained foetal haemoglobin, analysed some time (months) after the event. Foetal haemoglobin is only detectable for a matter of hours after leaving the body, otherwise baby blood is identical to adults'. The Englishman was unaware of this Pathology-101 fact. The blood on the jump suit, via a photo, was later identified to be bull dust, which the Englishman was unfamiliar with. The jump suit immediately went missing from the police evidence lockup. All in all, the Chamberlain trial was just another Australian mock trial. A charlatan "expert" giving evidence to police; evidence that was prearranged by the police. Another good example of a rigged trial was that of R v Button, Brisbane Supreme, 2000. Button was an Aboriginal man accused of raping his niece. The semen sample taken matched that of Button's DNA. At least, that's what the pathology report from the John Tong Centre indicated. It turned out that JTC had no such Button record on theirs books. The Qld Police had completely falsified a pathology report and presented that to the court as evidence. (talk) 02:42, 24 November 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Why is she called an NZ born women in the intro[edit]

and not an Aussie? She clearly identifies as an Aussie because in an interview I saw with Paul Holmes she made a point of calling herself an Australian when Paul mentioned during the interview that she was born in NZ!Theodore D (talk) 05:13, 19 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

  • Have you got a source relating to her citizenship/nationality or the interview you mention? (talk) 00:52, 2 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Proposal to restore "Lindy Chamberlain" as this article's name[edit]

According to the MOS on biography articles the names of people in article names should be the name by which a person is most commonly known, even when that name may not be their legal or current name or even the name they prefer. Lindy's common name is very clearly "Lindy Chamberlain" and not "Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton". Therefore I propose that this article name should be restored to "Lindy Chamberlain" again in accordance with the MOS. "Chamberlain-Creighton" can still be used in her name in the the opening sentence. Yahboo (talk) 04:12, 29 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

What is the Roff?[edit]

In section: Evidence that a dingo took Azaria Chamberlain,

Where it reads: Tourist Max Whittacker gave evidence that he attended a search later on the night of the disappearance with people including the heasd ranger and an aboriginal tracker. He claimed to have been called by the Roff to help him and the Aboriginal tracker...

Who or what is "the Roff"? 2600:1700:4CA1:3C80:8087:B1B:59BA:CDB7 (talk) 00:40, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The Roff[edit]

I may be wrong, but I think "the Roff" refers to Uluru chief ranger Derek Roff. Possibly a mistype after starting to write "the ranger" but then calling him by name for specifics. Couldn't find any information online regarding "the Roff".. initially thought it might be an organisation, or a spirit guide. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A00:23C7:B605:8A00:D83E:C1D:6F83:F8AD (talk) 13:47, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Uluru? It was Ayers Rock when this occurred, Not Uluru[edit]
