The dingo really did take her baby

CANBERRA, Australia — A coroner has found that a dingo took a baby who vanished in the Australian Outback more than 32 years ago in a notorious case that split the nation over suspicions that the infant was murdered.

Tuesday's ruling in the northern city of Darwin is from the fourth coroner's inquest into the disappearance of 9-week-old Azaria Chamberlain in 1980 from a campsite near Ayers Rock, the red monolith in the Australian desert now known by its Aboriginal name Uluru.

The mother, Lindy, was convicted and later cleared of murdering Azaria and has always maintained that a wild dog took her. She and her ex-husband, Michael Chamberlain, were in court to hear the finding.
