7News Spotlight: June 23

Seven delves into the death of a young mother who died in 2014 at her WA home as a result of a gunshot.

Sunday’s 7News Spotlight delves into the death of Amy Wensley, who died in 2014 at her WA home as a result of a shotgun injury to her head, aged just 24.

Crime scene experts, Scott Roder, reconstructs the bedroom where Amy’s body was found, to piece together missing evidence.

Liam Bartlett said: “Amy Wensley was a young mum with hope in her heart and two young children who adored her. She most certainly had everything to live for and any suggestion to the contrary is both ill-informed and nonsensical.

“All signs pointed to Amy preparing a new start, but that fresh beginning came to an abrupt end in a small bedroom when a shotgun went off in circumstances that can only be described as highly suspicious.”

On a wintry Thursday afternoon, in a rural weatherboard home, 24-year-old mother Amy Wensley met her tragic end by a single gunshot.

Outside in the driveway, her two young daughters were waiting patiently in the car to head to their grandma’s house for a sleepover.

Uniformed constables first on the scene deemed Amy’s death suspicious, but detectives who arrived soon after were quick to categorise Amy’s death as a suicide.

That seemed impossible by the available evidence and to anyone who actually knew her. To her family, Amy was a devoted mum who put caring for her kids above all else.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Amy’s death and with a $1 million reward on the line, 7NEWS Spotlight joins the hunt for answers in one of Australia’s most intriguing cold cases.
