Kathleen Folbigg (b. 1967) was made a Ward of the State when she was 18 months old, after the murder of her mother by her father. At age 3 she was moved from foster care into a children's home and then into a more permanent foster care placement. In 2003, Folbigg was convicted of murdering three infant children, and the manslaughter of the fourth. New scientific evidence suggests she may be innocent, that her daugters died of natural causes. Petitions have gone to the NSW Governor to review the evidence.
