True crime podcast about Wolvi mother's death debuts today

A TRUE crime podcast hosted by former Gympie police officers who attended the shocking death scene of Wolvi mother-of-four Kirra McLoughlin will debut on streaming services this weekend.

The first episode of Beenham Valley Road, named after the location of the 27-year-old's horrific death on July 18 2014, will be available today, in line with her birthday.

Hosts Tom Daunt (also a former The Gympie Times journalist) and Jamie Pultz will speak with numerous guests throughout the series, including Kirra's mother Alison Kirkness and The Gympie Times senior journalist Arthur Gorrie, who reported on her death in its immediate fallout.

The podcast, produced in real time with an undetermined number of episodes, will aim to air a new episode every second Saturday.

"We've already uncovered a lot more than people have ever heard before, we've had Kirra's mum say she's never known this much," Mr Pultz said.

A report published last week stated Kirra was "bashed and catastrophically brain-damaged, her fragile 159cm frame covered in more than 100 bruises" when she died in what her family says were "the most horrific and suspicious cirumstances."
