|The gag worked in Seinfeld. but the Australian mother has finally been exonerated.
|Settling a notorious 1980 case that split the nation and led to a mistaken murder conviction, an Australian coroner ruled that a dingo took a baby from a campsite in the Outback, just as her mother said from the beginning.
Tuesday's ruling in the northern city of Darwin is from the fourth coroner's inquest into the disappearance of 9-week-old Azaria Chamberlain in 1980 from a campsite near Ayers Rock, the red monolith in the Australian desert now known by its Aboriginal name Uluru.
The child's mother, Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, was convicted and later cleared of murdering Azaria and has always maintained that a wild dog took her.
