We’ll never know what a Somerton man thought the day would have in store for him as he stepped off a train at Adelaide station one Australian summer morning in 1948. All we know is he was heading to his death.
The man’s strange demise on the beach at Somerton would spawn Australia’s greatest unsolved mystery, a secret code that remains unbroken to this day and persistent rumors of Cold War intrigue and spying.
I’m Darren Marlar and this is Weird Darkness.
