The Pyjama Girl

25 Oct - 09 Nov 2013

On September 1 1934, the body of a young woman was discovered partly concealed in a culvert running under Howlong Road 8 kilometres west of Albury. She had been bashed and shot and her body set alight. No one knew who this young woman was and wild rumours abounded.

Intriguingly, she was found wearing yellow silk pyjamas, a detail the media latched onto, naming this unknown victim, the Pyjama Girl.

The investigation that followed became something of a phenomonen throughout the nation, capturing the headlines of every major newspaper for almost a decade. Closer to home, the Pyjama Girl mystery became synonymous with the identity of Albury.

Eventually, a man confessed to the killing, identifying the woman as Linda Agostini, his wife. The case was closed and Antonio Agostini served a little over four years for manslaughter before being deported to Italy.

Playwright and former Kiewa resident Emma Gibson found, upon investigation, there is much, much more to the story than the official records suggest
