Join Haunted Hills Host Tegan and Patron Mick W from Latrobe Valley Paranormal Detectives as they discuss the cases, what they think should have happened and reactions to the outcomes as they explore Walhalla’s criminal past.
Did bushrangers ever roll the gold as it moved toward Melbourne? Did felonies centre around the mining? Was gold the motive for murder? Did having so much gold around change the offences committed? Did the gold rushes bring in nefarious characters who brought the transgressions in?
Hear about the crimes committed when the State of Victoria thought lunacy was a crime. Stealing, larceny, attempted murder and the age-old domestic violence.
For the full discussion between Tegan and Mick, including some of his anecdotes, available on our Patreon feed at under live reading Walhalla Crime Episode.
