Theresa Frances Veronica Burke (born Amy Lauren Gardner on May 11, 1956) is a Canadian writer, journalist and producer for the CBC's television newsmagazine, the fifth estate. She was born in Toronto.

On May 20, 1999, Burke was on the telephone with bank robber Ty Conn, an escapee from the Kingston Penitentiary (one of Canada's most secure prisons) when he shot himself as the police were attempting his re-arrest. She co-authored Who Killed Ty Conn (2001) with Linden MacIntyre.
