How you can get justice for missing mum Lynette Dawson
Ben Fordham is relentlessly campaigning to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to reopen the case of missing mum Lynette Dawson.
Lynette, a devoted mother to two daughters disappeared without a trace 36 years ago.
Two coronial inquiries have determined that her husband, former rugby league star and school teacher Chris Dawson is the killer, but he’s never been charged.
“Right now the only suspect in the disappearance of Lynette Dawson is walking free,” says Ben.
Ben has written to the DPP (see letter below) to call for justice for Lynette, and he is urging you to do the same.

Cousin of Lynette and co-admin of the Looking for Lynette Dawson Facebook page Alison Jennings tells Ben “it’s become a massive movement”.
“Everyone is empowered to make a change and make a difference and just please, write to the DPP.
“If this was your sister, your mother your aunty, your cousin… you would move heaven and earth to find them and do what you could to bring justice for them.
“This is not just in the interest of our family, it’s in the interest of the general public because the public deserves good justice and good justice processes.”
She tells Ben she “never got the opportunity” to meet Lynette, who disappeared a year before her birth.
