The Mystery of the Somerton Man
Who's body was found on the shores of Adelaide?
During an evening stroll at the tail end of November in 1948, a couple walking along Somerton beach in South Australia noticed a man laying on the ground with his back leaned against a seawall. Our first episode in what I plan to be a two-parter will focus mostly (though not completely) on what direct witnesses of the man stated during a Coronial Inquest some months after his discovery. From common passersby to medical examiners and police officers, they gave their testimonies, and the details from these reports arose the building blocks of a mystery that hasn't been solved some 70+ years later. I hope you enjoy the episode, if you wish to reach out, the email address for the show is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for stopping by!
