Dingo caused Australia baby death

An Australian coroner has made a final ruling that a dingo dog took baby Azaria Chamberlain from a campsite in 1980 and caused her death.

After the eight week-old baby went missing, they were charged with her disappearance. Her mother was convicted of her murder.

According to BBC News, she was released when evidence matched the dingo story but doubts lingered.

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton has campaigned tirelessly to have dingoes officially blamed for the death of her child, says the BBC's Duncan Kennedy.

Earlier this year, the Chamberlains gave evidence to a coroner in Darwin recording a series of other attacks by dingoes on humans.

Virtually ever since Azaria vanished from her tent near Uluru (Ayers Rock) in 1980, Australia has been engrossed by the question of whether she was taken by a dingo.

In 1982, Ms Chamberlain-Creighton was found guilty of her baby's murder and sentenced to life imprisonment, while Mr Chamberlain was found guilty of being an accessory

It was a case that divided Australians and was even turned into the film A Cry In The Dark, starring Meryl Streep. Three previous coroner's inquests proved inconclusive.
