Chris Dawson ARRESTED Over Cold Case Murder Of Lyn Dawson

NSW Police Outline New Developments Leading To Arrest Of Chris Dawson

Chris Dawson, 70, has been arrested and is expected to be charged with his wife's murder.

An application for bail was refused by Queensland magistrate Dennis Kinsella and Dawson was taken into custody of NSW detectives.

Mr Dawson is due to appear in Paramatta Local Court on Thursday.

He has been taken to Southport in Queensland where New South Wales police will apply for his extradition.

But his arrest yesterday on the Gold Coast was a sudden development of case that has never been far from the headlines during the 37 years that have passed since Lyn's disappearance.

Ms Dawson was 33 when she went missing from their home on Sydney's northern beaches in January 1982 leaving behind two young daughters.

Chris Dawson, 70, was arrested on a warrant and hauled before a Queensland court on Wednesday nearly four decades after his wife was last seen alive.

"We won't give up on trying to identify the whereabouts of Lynette Dawson, but, from our perspective, it is not crucial to finalising the matter".

"No doubt it will be a voluminous brief with an enormous amount of evidence and obviously there will be a number of witnesses that will be called".

Lyn Dawson's family are seeking privacy at this time, but are relieved.

Rahm breezes to Hero World Challenge title
The former world number one hit his last competitive stroke of 2018 at his own Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on Sunday. Rahm , who led overnight with Tony Finau and Henrik Stenson , posted a bogey-free seven-under 65 to finish on 20 under.

He also described the police case as "circumstantial", as no body had been found. He said depending on the court process, he could be bailed to a Sydney court in three or four weeks.

The podcast on the case, Teacher's Pet, has had millions of downloads and recently won The Australian's Hedley Thomas and Slade Gibson a Gold Walkley. "It is my understanding that there were two additional statements were the byproduct of the media and the work that the media has done, but essentially the case rests on the work of Dan Pool and the Unsolved Homicide Squad".

A week-long search of her former home in September failed to find any new evidence.

Mr Dawson will face a NSW court later this week.

"We're certainly hoping an interview with this 70-year-old man who's now in custody in Queensland will assist us with the outcome of where the body may be".

Chris Dawson, the former husband of missing Sydney woman Lynette Dawson, will be extradited from Queensland to New South Wales where he is expected to be charged with her murder.

As fans of the podcast will know, her husband Chris, a former rugby player and PE teacher at a local high school has always been suspected of involvement.

In September, investigators dug up the Bayview home for nearly a week but said they found no human remains and no significant clues.
