On the 40th anniversary of the murder of 23 year old Phyllis Murphy from Kildare town, Susan heard from Phyllis' sister Barbara Turner, who shared her story. 

Phyllis Murphy's naked body was discovered 28 days after she went missing while making her way home from a day Christmas shopping. For almost 20 years it looked like the mystery of who murdered Phyllis would never be solved until a development in DNA technology lead to a breakthrough. 

Susan went to visit Phyllis’s sister Barbara at her home in Kildare town to hear the story. 

Barbara and her husband kindly invited Susan to their home, so a big thanks to the Murphy family for sharing some of Phyllis’ story with Newstalk Breakfast.
