Juanita Nielsen: The Woman Who Vanished

True Crime Conversations

It’s a bleak, cold morning, on July 4, 1975.  A 34-year-old man named Eddie Trigg waits inside the Carousel Cabaret nightclub, known to most as a seedy bar located in the heart of Sydney’s Kings Cross.  But that’s not why Eddie, with a beard and sharp hazel eyes, is there. After all, it’s just past 10:30am. He is there to meet someone.  Juanita Nielsen, the 37-year-old owner and publisher of the newspaper NOW, makes her way towards the establishment. These will be the final moments of her life.  It’s 10:40am when she arrives. She is greeted at reception and escorted upstairs to the VIP Lounge. She is there for what she believes is a work meeting. She is never seen again.  Whispers have circulated around Sydney since. Some say her body is buried under an airport runway. Others are convinced her body is hidden beneath sand dunes.  But 46 years on, Juanita Neilsen is still known as the woman who vanished, and her body has never been found.  We do know, however, that she was a woman with enemies.  CREDITS Guest: Peter Rees Host: Jessie Stephens Producer: Gia Moylan Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri CONTACT US Tell us what you think of the show via email at truecrime@mamamia.com.au Join our closed Facebook community to discuss this episode.

Juanita Nielsen is the only way I have been able to unravel this outlaw gang in Kings Cross today.  Following the history, money and how the missing persons were a way that this gang utilised to control murders who are drug dealers.  There is only a threat of life in prison they use for the wall of silence.

Unbelievable I know, but what if I'm right?  Then the police have missed the alleged secret of how a gang, an outlaw gang keeps the silence by allegedly getting rid of the people that may expose them.Today I go through the links on Christopher Flannery's life and wonder when the Police will search to expose the bones of some of the oldest missing persons.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jenniferstone/support
