Fiona’s fight to find her husband Bruce’s body

Fiona Splitt started an intense advocacy campaign in Queensland to have the “no body, no parole” legislation introduced after the murder of her partner Bruce Schuler in 2012. Bruce was gold fossicking in the remote Palmerville Station area in Cape York, Australia when he was murdered. His body has never been found and a rogue, outback couple Stephen and Dianne Struber were convicted of his murder.

Thanks to Fiona’s immense efforts The “no body, no parole” legislation was introduced. The Strubers will never be released from prison because they deny they murdered Bruce. 

Fiona still holds hope Bruce’s remains will be found and continues to push for information so she can bring Bruce home. Fiona tells us about her latest step in her quest to find Bruce. 

Previously we spoke with author Robert Reid who wrote about the case in his book Murder on the River of Gold (episode 122)
