Australian True Crime

Charlie Bezzina has been in confined spaces with some of the most monstrous people imaginable. People who have committed crimes so terrible they would make your skin crawl. The former Detective was one of Victorias most successful and longest-serving Homicide squad detectives. So how did he do it, without losing self-control? What was the first thing he always did on a crime scene? And what is the one question he'd ask himself, every single time?He tells Meshel Laurie how crime, and criminals, have gotten smarter in the last few decades. And why the police need the public's help more than ever.Show notes:Your hosts are Meshel Laurie and Emily WebbWith thanks to Charlie BezzinaLike us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or TwitterSupport us on PatreonVisit our Bookshop Listen on Apple PodcastsListen on Google PodcastsListen on SpotifyIf you have any information on the cases covered by this podcast, please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.Thank you for listening!Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.
