Mima McKim-Hill was murdered in 1967. Her friend and colleague Shirley Eldridge has spent the last 49 years putting Mima's story to paper as she gets ready to launch her latest novel, Mima.
On March 9, 1967 it is believed Mima was abducted near Calliope, sexually assaulted, murdered and left in bushland near Biloela. She was just 21 years old.
SHIRLEY Eldridge has replayed this memory from March 10, 1967 over in her head more than a million times throughout the past 49 years.
