The Tale of Toyah Cordingley

Any “Travel to Australia” advertisement on television displays stills of the Great Barrier Reef and pearl white beaches. Volleyball, tank tops, scantily clothed and sizzlingly tanned bodies can be found frolicking around. But on 22nd October 2018, a body was found in one such Australian beach. The difference was, this wasn’t a tanned person frolicking around. In fact, this body did not appear to move at all. This is the story of the day that redefined the ‘beach’ for residents of Queensland, Australia; this is the story of Toyah Cordingley.
