Cold case - Scott Bainbridge

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:06 pm on 28 August 2014

Tomorrow in Hamilton a coronial inquest will be held into one of this country's oldest cold cases. Forty-nine years ago, a young baker called Graeme Timlin disappeared from work in Hamilton. He was 19 years old at the time. Five days later, his van was found at Mount Maunganui. No trace of him was found. That was May of 1965. There was a coronial inquest in 1977, which ruled he was presumed dead, but no death certificate was issued. Author Scott Bainbridge investigated Graeme's disappearance for his 2008 book, 'Still Missing'. He said it was the most mysterious case he'd looked into.
