A Dingo Ate My Baby

June 13, 2012 by staff 

A Dingo Ate My Baby, Now this is an Innocence Project. An Australian coroner has ruled that a dingo really did eat Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton’s baby, over 30 years ago. To put this in context, the line “a dingo ate my baby” comes from this case! This case was the basis for the movie A Cry in the Dark with Meryl Streep (though IMDB claims that the famous line was never actually spoken in this movie).

So Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, the “dingo ate my baby” lady, has been vindicated! What a world. Next thing you know, dogs will actually start eating homework, and O.J. will find his ex-wife’s real killers.

How did we come to this? CNN reports that this case has been winding its way through Australia’s judicial system for 30 years:

The official finding that a dingo — a type of wild dog — killed Azaria [Chamberlain] ends a legal battle that has been fought over four inquests, a murder trial, through Federal and High Court appeals and a judicial inquiry. Until Tuesday, questions had remained over the cause of Azaria’s death, despite a 1988 ruling quashing [Lindy] Chamberlain-Creighton’s conviction and life sentence for her daughter’s murder.
