The Rewind Recommends: New Podcast Shines Light On Murder Of Michaela McAreavey

The family of Irish woman Michaela McAreavey, who was murdered on her honeymoon in Mauritius, have launched a new podcast about her death and the subsequent trial.

Michaela, daughter of Tyrone GAA manager Mickey Harte, was strangled in her hotel suite during her honeymoon in January 2011.

Two local hotel workers were cleared of killing the 27-year-old in a high-profile trial the following year. In a new nine-part series, Murder in Mauritius, her family have recorded a podcast to shine a light on the case and their search for justice.

Her husband John, his sister and Michaela’s brother Mark focus on all the details and evidence of the case in a heartbreaking and revealing manner. Mr McAreavey have repeatedly criticised the police investigation that came before the trial.

Speaking to Pat Kenny on Newstalk last week, John McAreavey said the podcast will help listeners understand the "circus act" trial.

We always felt, that because the trial itself had turned into this big circus act, we felt that truth had been lost in that and we wanted to present the evidence.

The podcast is available on Spotify here or Apple here.
