Kathleen Folbigg: Could Australia's Worst Female Serial Killer Be Innocent?

The case of one of Australia's most notorious serial killers Kathleen Folbigg has fascinated people across the world since she was accused and convicted of murdering her four young children.

The Quicky speaks to one of the experts to unpack the science and examine whether rare genetic mutations could be to blame for all four deaths, and what that means for our justice system that was perhaps too keen to convict her.
