Chris Dawson arrested and expected to be charged over his wife's murder

Chris Dawson arrested and expected to be charged over his wife's murder

The 70-year-old former Newtown Jets rugby league player is expected to be charged with the murder of his wife Lyn, who vanished from the family home on Sydney's northern beaches in January 1982.

Mick Fuller, the New South Wales police commissioner, recently apologised for police failings on the case during the 1980s.

The mystery case gained global media attention and a cult following, with The Teacher's Pet podcast trending internationally and attracting 27 million listeners around the world.

Detectives allege Mrs Dawson was having financial trouble when she disappeared and will argue that, because she had organised a family portrait and her children were due to return to school, she did not plan to disappear suddenly of her own accord.

Mr Fuller said finding Ms Dawson's remains was "not crucial to finalising the matter", however investigators had not given up hope of doing so.

To date, he has maintained his innocence.

Mr Dawson would be charged with murder by NSW police, and bail was opposed by Queensland police because of the seriousness of the alleged offence, the court heard.

"We have solved homicides before without identifying the body", Comm. He's now expected to face a Parramatta court on Thursday.

Chris Dawson, has always been a suspect in the case but the former Newtown Jets rugby league player denies any involvement in her disappearance.

The commander of the NSW homicide squad, Detective Superintendent Scott Cook, said he was "confident" in the case.

In September investigators spent nearly a week digging up the Dawsons' former Bayview home but found no human remains and no significant clues.

Earlier this week, the ODPP provided advice to police, and following further inquiries, NSW Police detectives applied for an arrest warrant before travelling to Queensland.

Police have spoken to Lyn Dawson's family this morning, who are "relieved".

"That dig didn't provide any additional information, unfortunately, and, look, from our perspective we would have dearly loved to have found the body of Lynette Dawson not just for the brief of evidence but for her family", Fuller said.

During his time as a teacher, he met Year 11 student Joanne Curtis.

Chris and Lynette Dawson on their wedding day. He then waited six weeks to report his wife missing.

"We are disappointed at the decision of the DPP as there is clear and uncontested evidence that Lyn Dawson was alive long after she left Chris and their daughters", the statement, from Chris' twin brother Peter said.

"We have no doubt whatsoever that Chris will be found not guilty as he is innocent".
