Wanda Beach Murders, Marianne Schmidt and Christine Sharrock, Sydney, 1965

Wanda Beach Murders, Marianne Schmidt and Christine Sharrock, Sydney, 1965

On 11 January 1965, fifteen-year-old schoolgirls, Marianne Schmidt and Christine Sharrock, were brutally murdered at Wanda Beach near Cronulla in Sydney. They had spent the morning at the beach with Marianne’s four younger siblings, and had then walked off into the sand dunes alone. The Schmidt children waited for four hours for the girls to return before going home to raise the alarm.

The following morning, a man saw what he believed to be a shop mannequin buried in the sand. He brushed sand away from the hand, and realised then that he had found a body. Police arrived at the scene to find the bodies of Marianne Schmidt and Christine Sharrock. Sharrock’s skull had been fractured, Schmidt’s throat had been cut and both girls had been repeatedly stabbed. The murderer had also attempted to rape them both.

Despite an extensive police investigation, the case remains unsolved.
