We finally know what happened in the missing persons investigation that captured a nation. Melissa Caddick, the fraudster who stole $23 million from her closest family and friends, is dead.

So said the deputy state coroner, who handed down her report last week. But how did she come to this finding? Until now, all we knew was that Caddick’s right foot had washed up on the shores of a remote beach. This was shortly after she went missing, nearly two and a half years ago. 

Today, investigative reporter Kate McClymont joins Samantha Selinger-Morris on The Age and SMH daily news podcast Please Explain to discuss what we now know - and what we’ll never know - about what happened to Melissa Caddick.
