Our guest speaker....Leeza Peters

Elizabeth Woolcock - became the only woman to be hanged in South Australia.  She was found guilty of poisoning her Husband Thomas and was executed on 30 December 1873.
Leeza and her Father Allan have spent over 40 years researching Elizabeth's tragic story they have uncovered that the evidence against her was scant, that her husband's Doctor had been prescribing him Mercury, the very poison she was supposed to have used to murder him!
Elizabeth was assigned a grossly inexperienced lawyer who was up against one of the most powerful men in the state, and upon being found guilty, was denied mercy for 'fear of shaking the confidence in the Justice system'.
