The 30-year-old mystery of the death of two-month old Azaria Chamberlain has finally come to an end. A coroner ruled that Azaria, who disappeared from her family's tent during a holiday in 1980, was killed by a dingo, a type of wild dog.
The story gained worldwide attention and made into a 1988 Meryl Streep film, A Cry in the Dark.
Kieran Gilbert from Sky News Australia is following the case. We asked him how the case was finally closed?
'The truth is out,' family says after Australian dingo ruling
More than 30 years after her frantic cries of "a dingo's got my baby," an Australian coroner has ruled that the words Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton screamed that night were true.
Azaria Chamberlain was just two months old when she disappeared from her family's tent at a public campsite near Uluru, also known as Ayer's Rock, in Australia's Northern Territory.
Speculation about what happened to Azaria polarized public opinion in Australia and became the subject of a 1988 feature film "A Cry in the Dark" starring U.S. actress Meryl Streep.
Thirty-two years after losing her daughter, Chamberlain-Creighton sat shaking in the Darwin court Tuesday as she waited to hear the results of the fourth and now final inquest into Azaria's death.
