Tiahleigh Palmer: Police excavate murder accused's backyard

Police have begun an excavation of the backyard at the Thorburn family home at Chambers Flat as they continue their search for more evidence in the murder case of Tiahleigh Palmer.

The 12-year-old's school uniform and backpack have never been found but could provide more information about the death of the foster child.
