A Kiwi Teen Almost Killed the Queen. Kia Ora cuz!

In 1981, a psychopathic New Zealand teenager came very close to assassinating Queen Elizabeth. Embarrassed police not only covered it up but sent him away to Australia, a free man. Why haven’t we seen that on the Crown? Former high-ranking New Zealand Detective, now Gold Coast retiree Tom Lewis tried to tell the world and was driven out of his homeland. He and his granddaughter Maria join us to tell the incredible story that’s now the subject of a major corruption investigation in New Zealand.
