AN INCONVENIENT WOMAN

by Brian Peddie

A man disappears. A woman is convicted. The case divides a state.

An Inconvenient Woman does not make any judgment about Susan Neill-Fraser’s guilt or innocence, but asks probing questions about a judicial system under the spotlight.

On Australia Day, 2009, Bob Chappell went missing from his yacht Four Winds. On August 20, his partner of 20 years, Susan Neill-Fraser was arrested for his murder. With no body, no forensic evidence connecting the accused and no clear motive presented, the case has divided the public and raised much conjecture in and outside the courtrooms of Tasmania and beyond.
