The story behind the investigation into the murder of Ulrike 'Ricky' Conway

On a Sunday evening Ricky Conway, mother of two and estranged wife of a serving police officer, was found deceased in her Canberra suburban home. Police suspected Ricky had committed suicide, as the day before she had tried but failed. But one detective on the case noticed something unusual, the toilet seat had been left up. Ricky, however, had been home alone all weekend. From this one observation, suspicions grew and an exhaustive investigation was launched into her death. Some thought the detectives were wasting their time, particularly as they began to focus on one of their own. Despite criticism, the investigation continued, uncovering an evil conspiracy of deceit and manipulation. Even so, there was no hard evidence to incriminate their prime suspect, John Conway. The pressure was on the investigators to find the evidence or disband. It seemed Ricky's murder would be unsolved, that was, till a break-through came from an unlikely source. Without it, Ricky's death would have been a perfect murder.
