Fieldays No. 8 Wire National Art Awards 2011 – Winner
41 years ago there was no bigger story in New Zealand than the killing of Jeanette and Harvey Crewe.
Killed in their Pukekawa farmhouse and dumped in the Waikato river, the murders cast a shadow over rural life in a country proud of it’s farming heritage.
The Crewe’s daughter Rochelle was found crying in her cot 5 days after the couple died. An innocent man was jailed for the crime and then pardoned.
The case remains unsolved.
