This is the story of a mass-murder that divided a nation - a story that began in a rickety old home on a cold June morning in 1994, where five members of a seemingly ordinary New Zealand family were gunned down. There were two suspects. One lay dead from a single bullet to the head. The other was the only survivor: David Bain. Since then the country has asked: who killed the Bain family? David or his father Robin? In this podcast, Martin van Beynen explores the case from start to finish, picking through evidence, the mysteries and motives, and interviewing never-before-spoken-to witnesses. He seeks to finally answer the question: Who was the killer?

Customer Reviews


The 911 call at the beginning of every single episode is rough. Thought this was an unbiased case review podcast but the “journalist” tips his hand about halfway through the episodes. Not an unbiased opinion at all. Also find it pretty convenient that “he was a nice quiet guy he couldn’t have done it” was a good enough reason for everyone to take the blame off of the father but “he was a nice funny guy who wouldn’t have done it” wasn’t a good enough reason to not put the son in jail for 13 years. Lovely.


This story, which is new to me (in the US), is utterly gripping. So glad I stumbled upon this podcast, which is well-done.

I do agree with another review that the repeated use of the emergency services call in each episode’s intro is tough to take. I actually plug my ears and cringe.

Good but not engaging

It’s a great story but I found that I missed a lot because it wasn’t very engaging for some reason. I quickly lost track of names which was confusing. I got distracted by dialect differences since this is from NZ and I’m from the US. Worst of all, I wasn’t able to download any episodes which is super annoying, but probably a problem with iPhone (?)
