Producer Mayeta Clark attended the inquest at the Gympie District Court.

The episode preview reads:

"Burnt-out former policeman Jamie Pultz is haunted by the suspicious death of Kirra McLoughlin six years ago.

"Kirra was a charismatic young mum he'd met on a domestic violence call-out and he doubted her death, a few months later, was due to natural causes.

"After he left the police, he joined forces with another young ex-cop Tom Daunt.

"Together, they launched their own podcast investigation into why no one had been charged over Kirra's death.

"Neither of them would anticipate the dark paths they would go down or their startling discoveries."

The inquest uncovered a huge amount of information, recollections and accusations through testimonies given by nearly 30 witnesses.

Part 2 airs Monday September 21.
