Mrs Baden-Clay's best friend, Kerry-Anne Walker, has helped the Dickies in their ordeal and was at the search site every day. She was one of the last to have contact with Mrs Baden-Clay, texting her on the night she disappeared about her plans for the following day.
"That Friday was a busy day for her. She had a full-day conference in town and the kids were having a sleepover that night, so she would have got all her stuff ready," Mrs Walker said.
"I had texted her that day, the Thursday, and she texted me back that night saying she'd drop around on her way home from this conference .
"She arranged to drop some stuff off for me on the way home. So it was all a bit of a shock."

SHE got up early every morning for a walk but Allison Baden-Clay always made sure she was home by the time her little girls woke.
Without fail, she was there to make them breakfast and get them ready for school - except last Friday morning.

For the first time, sisters Hannah, 10, Sarah, 8, and Ella, 5, woke up without their mum.

Some time after she had tucked them up in bed the night before, Mrs Baden-Clay disappeared.

Husband Gerard was once favoured in the LNP ranks as a future member of parliament, touted by at least one federal MP as the "best candidate" in the Moggill electorate for the 2004 state election.

"I thought he was definitely a future state government minister," said former LNP member and federal Ryan MP Michael Johnson. "He has a very strong pro-business background and that is the DNA of the Liberal Party."

THE hunt for the killer of Brookfield mum Allison Baden-Clay continues, with investigators tight-lipped about whether their recent focus on a Brisbane roundabout has generated any new leads.

The western suburbs roundabout, which connects Brookfield Rd and Moggill Rd, has become a focus of the investigation.

Traffic was stopped for about 20 minutes on Friday night so police could time a white vehicle going around the Kenmore roundabout, and driving up Brookfield Rd, where the victim lived.

The roundabout, which is monitored by a CCTV traffic camera, is on the main route between Mrs Baden-Clay's home and the Kholo Creek Bridge on Mt Crosby Rd at Anstead, where her body was found last Monday.

Police have continued to renew calls for anyone who drove in the vicinity of the Brookfield and Moggill roads roundabout, between 11.30pm on April 19, the night Mrs Baden-Clay went missing, and 4am the next morning, to come forward.

SCORES of state emergency services personnel and police are scouring a two acre property in the leafy enclave of Brookfield in Brisbane's west searching for clues to the disappearance of mother of three Alison Baden-Clay today.

Tuesday, April 24, 2012


THE family of Allison Baden-Clay has not given up hope of finding the missing Brookfield mother alive and reuniting her with her "three beautiful little girls".

Questioned yesterday on whether Mr Baden-Clay was still a person of interest, Metropolitan North Regional Crime Co-ordinator Detective Superintendent Mark Ainsworth said "Not at this time".


Her mother, Priscilla Dickie, said in Brisbane yesterday that she would not know how to cope if her daughter was not found.

"Our lives will never be the same," she said through tears.

"We must find her. She's just so precious and she's so loving. We desperately need your support. Please, please help us."

Wednesday, April 25, 2012


The cars have been impounded but police are urging anyone who saw either of the vehicles around the time Mrs Baden-Clay vanished to come forward.

"The local community has been a huge help with this case and we are hoping more calls will come in relating to these vehicles," Detective-Superintendent Mark Ainsworth said.

POLICE are sifting through key clues as evidence mounts in the hunt to find Allison Baden-Clay's killer.

Several questions and alleged discrepancies still remain in the murder investigation, including the timing of her walk, screams heard by residents in another part of Brookfield shortly after she was last seen alive and whether her body was moved by heavy rains or dumped where she was found under the Mt Crosby bridge at Kholo Creek in Anstead.

Baden-Clay faces court today charged with wife's murder
Gerard Baden-Clay will remain behind bars until July 9 after a brief appearance in court this morning over the murder of his wife Allison.

Media packed Courtroom 3 of the Brisbane Magistrates Court, where a stony-faced Mr Baden-Clay appeared briefly in the glass-enclosed dock of the courtroom about 9.30am.

Wearing neatly ironed business shirt, he stood with his back turned to the media and public and his head bowed.

Allison Baden-Clay murder case: Gerard Baden-Clay vows to fight murder charge
Nearly two months after phoning police to say the woman he called his "angel" had disappeared, he was taken into police custody on Wednesday and charged with causing her death.
He was also charged with unlawfully interfering with a corpse.

Gerard Baden-Clay makes first appearance in court on Thursday but faces three-year wait to face trial over the murder of his wife Allison Baden-Clay
According to the charge sheet, it is alleged the murder of Allison Baden-Clay occurred at her home in Brookfield and the alleged interference of the corpse occurred at Kholo Creek in Anstead.
At about 9.30am, the 41-year-old was led into the dock at Brisbane's Magistrate's Court and stood with his back to the public gallery before being led out again in less than a minute.

Wearing the same pink checked business shirt and grey slacks that he had on when he was arrested last night - as opposed to the usual brown prison tracksuit - Baden-Clay was led back into court after the matter scheduled before his was completed.

Baden-Clay consents to DNA tests
The husband of slain Brisbane woman Allison Baden-Clay has consented to a police forensic order for his DNA.
After appearing in Brisbane Magistrates Court for just 30 seconds earlier this morning, Gerard Baden-Clay returned to the dock as police sought permission for a "non-intimate" forensic test.

Gerard Baden-Clay: Top 5 News Coverage Links to Wife Allison’s Murder

By Arlene Paredes | June 14, 2012 12:19 PM EST

Here is the Top 5 of the clues found in the news coverage of Allison's murder that may reconcile with Gerard's arrest.

1. Gerard reportedly said Allison did not come home from her usual morning walk, but she was last seen in the previous evening. The information is weak as to what could have happened in the hours leading to the police report.

2. There was at least one witness report of seeing vehicles similar to the Baden-Clay family car in the vicinity of Kholo Creek at Anstead on the night of April 19. Police seized the family car, but has since been returned to Gerard after police tests were made.

3. Police had earlier said Allison "knew her killer," and her murder was not a random crime.

4. Police had also said Allison's body may have been washed away due to heavy rains days before her body was found. Gerard is charged with "unlawfully interfering with a corpse," but police had not shared information on how interfering was observed in Allison's remains.

5. Reports of Allison's troubled marriage surfaced in the midst of police investigations to solve her murder.

THE secret sale of an investment property bought for Allison Baden-Clay and her brother cannot be stopped by her family despite father Geoff Dickie being appointed administrator of her estate.
The Courier-Mail revealed yesterday that Mrs Baden-Clay's husband, Gerard, who is accused of her murder, secretly sold the Gold Coast nest egg from his prison cell at Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre.

It's understood he legally did this by writing to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and advising them that his wife was no longer alive, making him sole director of the company World of Top Step Pty Ltd, which owned the property.

Baden-Clay said in court documents lodged in the Supreme Court earlier this year that: "In essence, Allison and I jointly own the property with her brother and his wife."

Battle over Gerard Baden-Clay insurance payout.

by: Alison Sandy From:
The Courier-Mail October 06, 2012

GERARD Baden-Clay has been denied access to his late wife's life insurance payout after Suncorp this week moved to have the funds frozen as he awaits trial for her murder.

The Courier-Mail understands the 42-year-old, who was charged in June with wife Allison's murder, was supposed to receive almost $350,000 from her life insurance and superannuation policy, but the insurance giant applied to the Federal Court to determine whether he should get the money under the circumstances.

Federal Court documents state that Suncorp met its obligation to pay out the policy, but rather than give it to Baden-Clay, it requested the money be held by the court "pending determination" of the rightful recipient. Suncorp also asked for "a declaration as to the person or persons entitled to the proceeds of the policy".

Husband's murder trial will determine access to Baden-Clay's payout

by: Sarah Elks
From: The Australian
October 26, 2012 12:00AM

TWO weeks before Allison Baden-Clay was allegedly murdered, her life insurer sent a letter to the cash-strapped household warning that her bill had not been paid and her policy was in danger of being cancelled.
Earlier, the company had written to the 43-year-old mother of three checking whether she wanted her prestige real estate agent husband, Gerard Baden-Clay, to remain as the sole beneficiary of the policy, worth $347,287.50.

The details have emerged in affidavits filed to the Federal Court by Suncorp Life and Superannuation Limited, which this week succeeded in stopping Mr Baden-Clay from touching his late wife's insurance payout until after his trial for her murder.

An affidavit sworn by John Kraszula, Suncorp's executive manager of underwriting and claims, said Baden-Clay's life insurance policy was taken out on March 11, 2008, with her husband the sole nominated beneficiary.

Mr Kraszula said Suncorp wrote to her on February 13 asking whether she wanted to change that, but had no reply.

Another letter, sent on April 6, warned Baden-Clay a premium of $1110.95 was overdue. Her policy would be cancelled and cover would cease if the bill was not paid by 4pm on May 19.

In his affidavit, Mr Kraszula does not say whether the bill was paid. However, he described being told by his staff that police were investigating Baden-Clay's disappearance, and that her body was eventually found.

Case against accused wife-killer Gerard Baden-Clay returns to Brisbane Magistrates Court

From: The Courier-Mail
November 05, 2012 12:00AM

THE case against accused wife-killer Gerard Baden-Clay is set to return to the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.
Baden-Clay, a 42-year-old real estate agent charged with the murder of his wife Alison in April, is not required to attend the hearing.

Prosecutor Danny Boyle asked for the further mention after disclosing lawyers would require some time to discuss which witnesses should be cross-examined because of a "voluminous'' brief of evidence.

Baden-Clay's solicitor Darren Mahony was not available on Sunday to discuss the case. He had earlier said the witness list should be largely resolved by consent prior to the compiling of "quite detailed submissions".

The prosecution says there are 466 statements making up its full brief against Baden-Clay, including five key statements most recently presented to the defence.

More than 450 witnesses in Baden-Clay murder case

November 5, 2012 - 10:28AM

There are 473 witnesses involved in the case against accused murderer Gerard Baden-Clay, a court has heard.

But Mr Baden-Clay's defence team is only interested in cross-examining at least 35 witnesses during his committal hearing.

At a brief mention of Mr Baden-Clay's case in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today, his solicitor Darren Mahony said there had been "substantial progress" between both parties in discussions about the cross-examination of 35 witnesses.

"We need to resolve the scope [of questioning] in about 20 of those 35," Mr Mahony said.
He said he expected to receive further correspondence from prosecutors, relating to those witnesses, this afternoon.

Mr Mahony also said he was confident negotiations to cross-examine a further 10 witnesses would be resolved before the matter was mentioned again next week.

Lawyers for Gerard Baden-Clay have lodged a new bail application in the Brisbane Supreme Court

by: Greg Stolz
From: The Courier-Mail
November 27, 2012 1:00AM

ACCUSED wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay could be home for Christmas after making a fresh bid for bail.

Lawyers for Baden-Clay, who was refused bail in June over his wife Allison's murder, lodged a new bail application in the Brisbane Supreme Court yesterday.

It will be heard on December 14, meaning Baden-Clay could be released from jail if the court rules in his favour.

Prisoners denied bail in the Supreme Court have to show evidence of a change of circumstances in order to make a second bail application.

Baden-Clay's Gold Coast-based lawyer, Darren Mahony, told The Courier-Mail yesterday there were two broad grounds for the new bail application.

"We will contend that the brief of evidence does not substantiate or support all of the claims made by the prosecution during the (first) bail application," he said.

"We will also argue that evidence, not referred to on the initial bail application, exists that is inconsistent with the Crown case and/or relevant to the defence."

Mr Mahony said he could not elaborate but he and the Director of Public Prosecutions are expected to make detailed submissions to the court in the lead-up to the bail hearing.

Judge denies bail to accused wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay

by: Sarah Elks From: The Australian December 15, 2012 12:00AM

Prosecutor Danny Boyle said the autopsy also found it was possible Baden-Clay was strangled or suffocated, and a white jumper was found around her neck. He said that although the only visible injury was a chipped tooth, other soft-tissue injuries - such as head or chest trauma - may have been disguised by the decomposition.

Slain mother Allison Baden-Clay's life insurance payouts frozen

Date February 6, 2013 - 1:26PM

The Federal Court will likely hold nearly $800,000 in trust from two life insurance polices for slain Brookfield mother Allison Baden-Clay until her husband, who is accused of her murder, faces trial.

Gerard Baden-Clay, who has been charged with one count of murder, made claims on his wife's two life insurance policies with Suncorp Life and Superannuation and TAL Life Limited soon after her body was found on April 30 last year.

Insurer Suncorp has successfully frozen Mrs Baden-Clay's $350,000 life insurance payout that was to go to her husband.

In the Federal Court on Wednesday, the second insurer TAL Life Limited confirmed it had handed $412,267 from a joint-policy held by the couple to the Federal Court.

Timeline from witness statements.

Day One of Committal Hearing in the case of Gerard Baden-Clay - 11 March 2013.
Thursday 19 April 2013.

8:00pm - 9:00pm: Julie Tzvetkoff, lives across from the Baden-Clay home heard yelling coming from that direction. It was a sharp loud yell but she couldn't tell if it was male of female. Her dog also barked that night. The dog usually only barks at the sound of car doors.
Kim Tzvetkoff also heard a shout from across the road. "It was a startled or shocked yell out." He said. Possibly no more than a couple of words which I couldn't discern what they even where. Something startling had happened. I wouldn't describe it as a scream. I feel is was a startled, shocked reaction." He said he was convinced it was a woman's voice. "I did say 'what was that? And I stood there for a moment and it wasn't repeated."

10:00pm: Susan Braun, a neighbour of the Baden-Clays heard her neighbours' dogs barking.

10:30pm: David Jenkinson, who lives in the Kholo Creek area, heard two heavy thuds, a car door closing and dogs barking in the direction of the bridge. The barking of the neighbourhood dogs had alerted Jenkinson to something unusual. Mr. Jenkinson said that he heard two thuds, followed by a car door closing. "The sound you would hear if you had thrown a bag of concrete onto grass." he said. "A heavy thud."

11:30PM: Susan Braun woke to loud noises. Woken by a very loud human noise, out the front, in the area of the Baden-Clay's residence. It sounded like yelling. She heard it twice.

12:30pm: Brian Mason, a resident of Anstead near Kholo Creek. His dog started barking at around 12:30pm. He quietened his dog and he could then hear howling. According to new information given eight months later, Brian Mason stated he heard voices ... someone talking.

4:00am: Anne Whittle woke twice to the sound of her neighbour's dog barking. She only recalls the second time she awoke and that was at 4:00am.

4:00am: Brian Mason's wife, a resident of Anstead near Kholo Creek spotted two cars on the side of Mt Crosby Rd. (Although the court was not told which day).

GERARD Baden-Clay's disgruntled business partners told him to choose between his wife and his mistress after the affair began to affect their real estate agency, a court was told.
In a third day of evidence in a committal hearing at the Brisbane Magistrates Court, former partners of the real estate agent told of his "on again, off again" affair with colleague Toni McHugh.

The court also heard from a forensic expert who said Baden-Clay's wife Allison, 43, could not have died from an overdose of anti-depressant medication because there was only a "therapeutic dose" in her system when she died.

Includes Olivia Walton interview.

Gerard Baden-Clay’s extramarital affair contributed to the demise of his business in the months before his wife Allison disappeared, a court has heard.

The prestige real estate agent in Brisbane’s affluent western suburbs co-owned the Century 21 Westside franchise with fellow agents Jocelyn Frost and Phillip Broom.

The former business partners faced each other for the first time since the agency’s demise across a Brisbane court room on Wednesday afternoon.

THE accused was in court. But you would have been excused for not realising it.
Soon after entering the dock of Court 17 on level four of Brisbane's Magistrates Court yesterday, Gerard Robert Baden-Clay sat in the seat in the deepest recess of the glass-walled box to the right of the court.

For the whole day's proceedings Baden-Clay was out of sight, away from the glare of the public gallery, visible to only two or three people in the far left of the first row.

Court artists had to lean out of their seats and crane their necks for inspiration.

"One time he did tell me that he was calling to tell me he did not know what had gone wrong, that he wasn't responsible for anything that had happened," she said.

Family of Allison Baden-Clay release a letter to mark the one-year anniversary of the Brookfield mum's disappearance.

From: The Courier-Mail
April 19, 2013 12:00AM

IN the past 12 months, Allison has been constantly in our thoughts.
Not for the circumstances and uncertain nature of her passing, but for the wonderful person she was. For the joy she brought to us all.

And for the lesson of selfless sacrifice she gave through the actions of her everyday life. Regardless of her own struggles and hurdles, Allison never stopped thinking of others first and foremost.

Allison, who was humble by nature, was extravagant only in her giving.

And she gave to all who came into her life, friends and thieves alike. She epitomised what it meant to be a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunty and friend.

After 12 months, Allison is missed more than ever, and she is most surely not forgotten.

We all have special personal memories of the wonderful woman she was.

RONI Johnson didn't have to know Allison Baden-Clay to want to make a difference to the lives of her three daughters.
The two Brookfield mums never met, but when Allison disappeared, Ms Johnson thought of the young girls waiting at home.

"The moment I heard about it I was saddened because she was just a normal local mum," Ms Johnson said yesterday.

"Everyone was praying from the word go that it would be OK.

"She was a mum who was missing and she had three little girls who were at home and were waiting for her."

Ms Johnson found a way to help, organising a cricket match and family day last year which raised $50,000 for the siblings.

The fundraiser will go ahead again this year at the Brookfield Showground in what will be an annual event in Allison's memory.

In a bizarre twist, the white Apple iPhone containing the recordings was also the same phone of Dr Flegg's which was lent to accused wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay.

The phone was given to Baden-Clay by the couple in April 2012 after police had seized his mobile as they investigated the disappearance of his wife, Alison.

"We did discuss it," Ms Heath told a committal hearing at Brisbane Magistrates Court in March. "We agreed that I'd lend him the phone."

Stickybeaks spark move to ease traffic dangers around Allison Baden-Clay tribute site at Kholo Creek.

From: The Courier-Mail
July 10, 2013 12:00AM

GRIEVING friends and crime scene ``stickybeaks'' have helped prompt the State Government to create a parking area at the bridge where Allison Baden-Clay's body was found.

The Kholo Creek bridge at Anstead has become an important area for family and friends to pay tribute and is a magnet for strangers who have followed the high-profile murder case.

Allison's family has also installed a stone monument and will soon add a memorial plaque at the site, where her body was discovered 10 days after she was reported missing in April last year.

"We wanted a permanent memorial as a tribute to Allison,'' her sister Vanessa Fowler said yesterday.

"We go there to reflect on Allison's life. It's not just to remember Allison's birthday or the day of her funeral, we go there often.''

Moggill MP Bruce Flegg said the site at Mt Crosby Rd had become a traffic hazard before the parking area was cleared.

"It's presented a safety hazard for some time. Main Roads have been to see me a couple of times about it,'' Dr Flegg said.

"They've been leaving flowers and just stickybeaking and there's been family and friends.


07-11-2013, 12:49 AM
THE Kholo Creek Bridge site, which became an unofficial memorial to Allison Baden-Clay after her body was found there, now carries a sandstone column marking the spot.

Some of the plastic flowers left there earlier still remain.

The family's permanent memorial to the late Mrs Baden-Clay will soon bear a plaque paying tribute to her.

A judge is yet to decide if a family counsellor privy to confidential discussions with accused wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay can be called as a witness.

Justice Glenn Martin held another review of the matter in the Supreme Court in Brisbane on Monday.

He is considering whether a family counsellor can testify during Baden-Clay's month-long murder trial, which is expected to start next year.

The counsellor is required by the federal Family Law Act to give clients confidentiality.
