Listen to the last episode:

On December 12, 2022, Constables Rachel McCrow and Matthew Arnold were killed in the line of duty.

A neighbour, Alan Dare, also died that day. As did the three people who were firing at them.

But there are still many unanswered questions from that night, which will be examined when an inquest gets underway at the end of this month.

9News presenter and host of podcast The Ultimate Sacrifice, Melissa Downes, joins us to discuss the deadliest shooting in Queensland Police history.
