Fresh witness evidence leads to arrest of Chris Dawson over wife's disappearance

Fresh witness evidence leads to arrest of Chris Dawson over wife's disappearance

Chris Dawson has been arrested in Queensland and is expected to be charged over the murder of his wife Lynette.

The Teacher's Pet - the podcast made by journalists from The Australian newspaper - details a troubled marriage leading up to the disappearance and scrutinises the police response to it.

Dawson had always been a suspect after wife Lyn vanished from Sydney's northern beaches in January 1982.

Police have spoken to Lyn Dawson's family this morning, who are "relieved".

'That information enabled New South Wales Police to get an arrest warrant for a 70-year-old man now living in Queensland, ' Fuller said.

He's been taken to the Southport Courthouse where NSW detectives will apply for his extradition at his first court appearance.

She said her client had co-operated with detectives in the past and was happy to comply with any bail conditions imposed.

The former rugby league player allegedly moved his teenage lover into the family's Bayview home just days after Lyn went missing.

"The resolve of the Unsolved Homicide Unit detectives shows that they will continue to search for the truth, no matter how many years may pass".

He also described the police case as "circumstantial", as no body had been found.

The family of Chris Dawson has released a statement, defending him.

Arsenal and Tottenham charged by FA for failure to control players
Arsenal, who won 4-2 at the Emirates , and Tottenham both have until 6pm on Thursday, December 6 to respond to the charge. A huge scuffle broke out on the touchline, which led to Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sprinting to play peacemaker.

He had his head in his hands as the magistrate read out the police case, including allegations of domestic violence against his wife.

Nearly 40 years after Sydney mother Lynette Dawson disappeared, her husband spent his first night in police custody accused of her murder.

Lyn Dawson's niece Renee Sims tells Chris Smith the arrest is "incredible news".

It is understood the airlines are concerned about taking Mr Dawson on board because of the strong interest in the case.

Mr Dawson would be charged with murder by NSW police, and bail was opposed by Queensland police because of the seriousness of the alleged offence, the court heard.

"We are disappointed at the decision of the DPP as there is clear and uncontested evidence that Lyn Dawson was alive long after she left Chris and their daughters", the statement, from Chris' twin brother Peter said.

Detectives from the NSW homicide squad began reinvestigating her suspected murder in 2015 and sent a brief of evidence to the Director of Public Prosecutions in April this year.

"We have no doubt whatsoever that Chris will be found not guilty as he is innocent".

Her nephew David Jenkins tweeted: "I'm shaking".

"A team of dedicated detectives has been investigating this case over the past three years", he said in a statement.

An application for a warrant was lodged after NSW Police received advice back from the DPP earlier this week.
