Shire Scandals: the Shark Arm Case

In March this year, Emma Baker visited Cronulla Library to give this fascinating talk on one of our biggest shire scandals: The 'Shark Arm' case.

In 1935, a large Tiger Shark was caught off the coast of Coogee and kept in the local aquarium baths. On ANZAC Day, the Shark disgorged a human arm. A forensic investigation revealed that the Shark was not responsible for the Victim's death: it was murder. And so an investigation ensued, leading to the shores of our very own Cronulla . . .
