Review of Film 'Shadows of Death, Elizabeth Woolcock' with Leeza Peters
Leeza Peters will talk about Elizabeth Woolcock and her work to prove her innocence. In 1873, Elizabeth 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. Leeza and her father Allan have spent over 40 years researching Elizabeth’s tragic story. In 2011 Allan & Leeza sought a posthumous pardon from the Governor and are currently preparing for another attempt. This fascinating presentation will leave you shocked that such mistreatment of a young woman could have occurred at any time in our state's history.
