The crime scene was described as looking more like the set of a horror movie, than real life. It is one of the most horrific crimes ever committed.

Not only did it shock the small town of Aberdeen in country NSW, where the crime occurred, it shocked the entire nation of Australia and parts of the world. What could possibly drive somebody to do this? A psychiatric illness? Or premeditated, pre-planned, pure evil?

First came the seizures and sleep paralysis. Then came the hallucinations and violent behaviour. Anneliese Michel made endless visits to doctor’s and specialists only to be either referred to another doctor or placed on medication that wasn’t helping her. Her condition became so bad that at times she started to growl and speak in a horrific deep voice, destroy religious objects and complain religious sites like churches were too painful for her to go near.

She convinced her parents and several priests she was possessed by demons. It led to the Catholic church making the unusual decision to grant two priests permission to perform an exorcism ritual. But was Anneliese really possessed by demons? The medical community doesn't think so.

They were certain of what Anneliese was suffering from, even though they couldn’t diagnose her properly whilst she was alive. Four people were eventually charged with negligent homicide after her death. The trial that followed was described as the biggest criminal trial in Germany, outside of the Nazi war crime trials. The story of Anneliese Michel is as heartbreaking as it is horrific. Incredibly, some of the exorcism rituals were recorded. The tapes were never allowed to be played in court.... but they will be played during this episode.

The 7th of May 2005 was a typical run of the mill day for Shirley Withers. She worked the full day in her Melbourne fashion boutique and once the shop had closed, she bought a take-out meal and headed to the North Caufield mansion of her millionaire boyfriend Peter Shellard.

But what she found when she arrived there was anything but run of the mill. S&M act gone wrong? Or staged crime scene? Either way, somebody was responsible for the death of Peter Shellard. Who was it?

He was implicated in a case of missing money from a courthouse evidence vault. He was facing allegations of misconduct and illegal handling of a witness in a major drug trafficking trial, which lead to the judge ordering a federal investigation.

One way to stop that federal investigation would be to come up with a quick plea deal to end the case. One problem, there was no way to do the plea deal without violating federal law. And Unfortunately for US assistant attorney Jonathan Luna things were about to get worse. Much, much worse.
