Following the 1982 disappearance of his wife, Lynette, and two separate coronial inquests, the NSW Coroner determined that Lynette Dawson was dead and that her most likely murderer was her husband, Chris.
After many years of stalled and failed investigations, Dawson was arrested and charged with murder in December 2018.
His trial started on 9 May 2022 in the NSW Supreme Court. On 30 August 2022, Dawson was found guilty of murdering Lynette.

Horrific details of the relationship between a teenage babysitter and Chris Dawson emerged throughout his murder trial, with the woman claiming the older man treated her as a “sex slave”.
On Tuesday, Dawson was taken to jail after sensationally being found guilty of the 1982 murder of his first wife, Lynette Dawson.
Justice Ian Harrison found that the 74-year-old was “infatuated” and “obsessed” with his former teenage babysitter, referred to as JC.
He found Dawson had “resolved to kill his wife” so that he could finally be with his student, with whom he had formed a sexual relationship while Lyn was still alive.
Because “I am satisfied that distressed, frustrated and ultimately overwhelmed and tortured by her absence up north, Mr Dawson resolved to kill his wife,” he said.
JC provided an unsettling insight into their relationship throughout the trial, with Justice Harrison saying Dawson’s obsession with the 16-year-old started when he was teaching her at a school on Sydney’s northern beaches.
JC met Dawson in 1980 when he was her Year 11 physical education teacher and she was soon asked to be the babysitter for the two children he shared with Lyn.
She moved into the couple’s home in late 1981, with JC claiming she would have sex with Dawson while his wife was asleep.
Chris Dawson Daughter
Chris Dawson’s eldest daughter has pleaded with him to “finally admit the truth” and reveal where her mother’s body is during an emotion-charged court hearing.
Shanelle Dawson delivered a victim-impact statement before the NSW Supreme Court in Sydney today, where her father faced a sentence hearing.
Also in August, Justice Ian Harrison convicted Chris Dawson of his wife Lynette’s murder, after one of the country’s most high-profile trials.
Dawson pleaded not guilty to murder and has always maintained his wife walked out on their family in the early 1980s.
Chris Dawson was not charged over the murder until 2018.
Shanelle fought through tears as she told the court she had endured “41 years of deceit, silence, trauma and gaslighting” at the hands of her father.
“The night you removed our mother from our lives was the night you destroyed my sense of safety and belonging in this world for many years to come,” she said.
Speaking to her father, who sat silently in the dock, she said he had “no right” to take away her adoring mother: “You are not God”.
But “She kept asking, ‘Why did he do that?’ The same question which tortured me for years and years.
But “Why didn’t you just divorce her? Because of money? For God’s sake.”
Also Shanelle was four at the time of her mother’s disappearance, and her sister was two.
