A Greater Guilt: Constance Emilie Kent and the Road Murder
A brutal murder of a child in a small English village in 1860 which remained an unsolved crime until the sensational confession of Constance Emilie Kent in 1865.

Constance Kent trained as a nurse at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, worked at the Coast Hospital at Little Bay, was matron of the notorious Parramatta Industrial School for girls and matron of a nurses' home in Maitland, she was a convicted murderess but lived to the grand old age of 100 under an assumed name and not once did anyone in the Antipodes suspect her true identity.
