In the early hours of Saturday morning 17 November 1923, a suitcase was found washed up on a beach in Mosman. What it contained and why would prove to be explosive. Police tracked down Sarah Boyd, the mother of the suitcase baby, and so begins the complex story and subsequent murder trial of Sarah and her friend Jean Olliver which became a media sensation.
