Wanda Beach Murders

Christine Sharrock and Marianne Schmidt were 15 year old best friends growing up in Australia right next door to each other. Marianne came from a large family, with 6 brothers and sisters. Christine was the only child living with her grandparents, but her closeness with Marianne caused her to assimilate into the family next door seamlessly.


After Mariane’s father died, she, along with her older brother, took a bigger role in caring for the younger children of the family. It was not uncommon for her and Christine to take the younger children on the 2 hour train ride to the beach to allow them to get away from the house for a day. January 11th, 1956, they planned to take this trip for a beach day, just as they’d previously done.
