Prior to 2018, Therese Ann Cook was known in her community in the NSW Blue Mountains as the eccentric founder of a local circus school which she operated with the help of her family.
By that February, her name and theirs were plastered on the front page of newspapers and media sites (including this one) around the world.
The then 58-year-old, her brother Paul Christopher Cook, 52, and her daughters Yyani Cook-Williams and Clarissa Meredith, aged 29 and 23, had been arrested and charged with dozens of sickening crimes against children.
Watch: Members of the Cook family speak about their ordeal.
Police filings detailed disturbing acts of sexual assault and abuse involving blood rituals, needles, knives and bitten tongues.
Then without warning and without explanation, the case against them was dropped in February this year.
Members of the family are due to appear on 60 Minutes on Sunday to share their side of what their lawyer described as "one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in NSW history".
