-Azaria Chantel Loren Chamberlain (11 June 1980 – 17 August 1980) was an Australian baby girl who was killed by a dingo on the night of 17 August 1980 on a family camping trip to Uluru (at that date known as Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territory. Her body was never found. Her parents, Lindy and Michael Chamberlain,​ reported that she had been taken from their tent by a dingo. However, Lindy was tried for murder and spent more than three years in prison. She was released when a piece of Azaria'​s clothing was found near a dingo lair, and new inquests were opened. In 2012, some 32 years after Azaria'​s death, the Chamberlains'​ version of events was officially confirmed by a coroner. +**Azaria Chantel Loren Chamberlain** (11 June 1980 – 17 August 1980) was an Australian baby girl who was killed by a dingo on the night of 17 August 1980 on a family camping trip to Uluru (at that date known as Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territory.

-An initial inquest held in Alice Springs supported the parents'​ claim and was highly critical of the police investigation. The findings of the inquest were broadcast live on television—a first in Australia. Subsequently,​ after a further investigation and a second inquest held in Darwin, Lindy Chamberlain was tried for murder, convicted on 29 October 1982 and sentenced to life imprisonment. Azaria'​s father, Michael Chamberlain,​ was convicted as an accessory after the fact and given a suspended sentence. The media focus for the trial was unusually intense and aroused accusations of sensationalism. The Chamberlains made several unsuccessful appeals, including the final High Court appeal. + 
-After all legal options had been exhausted, the chance discovery in 1986 of a piece of Azaria'​s clothing in an area full of dingo lairs led to Lindy Chamberlain'​s release from prison. On 15 September 1988, the Northern Territory Court of Criminal Appeals unanimously overturned all convictions against Lindy and Michael Chamberlain. A third inquest was conducted in 1995, which resulted in an "​open"​ finding. At a fourth inquest held on 12 June 2012, Coroner Elizabeth Morris delivered her findings that Azaria Chamberlain had been taken and killed by a dingo, and an amended death certificate was issued immediately.+An initial inquest held in Alice Springs supported the parents'​ claim and was highly critical of the police investigation.
