Keli Lane has spent 11 years in prison for a crime she insists she didn’t commit. In 2010, the former school sports teacher was found guilty in the NSW Supreme Court of murdering her daughter – a crime she committed two days after Tegan was born in September 1996.
On September 12 this year, Tegan would have celebrated her 25th birthday. Keli and her supporters believe that Tegan is somewhere either in Australia or overseas and may even have no idea Keli is in jail for her murder.
Appeals against Keli’s conviction have failed. Now, a criminal law professor and the students who are part of the Bridge of Hope Innocence Initiative at RMIT University in Melbourne, who investigate miscarriages of justice, want a review.
“There are no key witnesses to Keli killing Tegan, there is no murder weapon, there are no remains. There is no evidence that Tegan was harmed,” the project’s director, Associate Professor Michele Ruyters, tells New Idea. “There is nothing to suggest Tegan isn’t somewhere out there today.”

No more walks on the beach, we hope! Even for a medical soap that thrives on tears, angst and broken hearts, last season was a gut punch: The show's beloved mainstay, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), spent months in a COVIDrelated coma.
As last season's top new drama returns, undercover vigilante Robyn McCall (Queen Latifah) teams with the cop who once wanted to expose her. Det. Marcus Dante (Tory Kittles) asks the motorcycle-riding badass to help him catch bank robbers who killed police officers-an investigation that will lead to top levels of U.S. intelligence and politics. Showrunners Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe tell us more.
