A suspicious death, a coroner’s inquest, a Supreme Court verdict of fraud and a family cut out of a last minute will. Evidence suggests that a Victorian era publican may have murdered four men at her hotel in Adelaide – two of them husbands. This is the story of Josephine, from 1863 to 1874 the publican at the Gasworks Hotel. Author David Coombe presents the circumstantial case against Josephine.
