    Zahra's memorial and where to be buried.

    http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/8685638/

    Posted: 2:32 p.m. today

    Catawba County, N.C. The death of a Hickory girl may serve to benefit other needy children in Catawba County.

    Lee said the police department has had people ask to donate in memory of Zahra.

    Zahra's memorial and where to be buried.

    In this link it says Z is having a memorial in Hickory. It says it hasn't been decided where Z will be buried. Wouldn't ED, AB and KB have say in that? hasn't it been said they want her back in Oz? I'm a little confused as to why they say it hasn't been decided.

    I'm just guessing, but probably AB and Emily are fighting over who gets custody of her remains.
    If there's hink....there must be stink.

    this ''feels'' like another shoe is going to drop soon -- I'll bet that repatriation to Australia is in the making and that Z's mom is coming to attend. That's a six day lead time and I imagine there are lots of details that are being negotiated right now. Given that the mom has had visitation rights etc that were not respected, I would hope she's got an Australian Court Order in her hand as we speak today and that the Consulate here is assisting.
    Just My Opinion

    Hence a memorial and not a funeral?
    That's what it implies in the article.

    Right now it hasn’t been decided where Zahra will be buried.

    I am curious as to who arranged it, I imagine it is to give closure to Zahra for Hickory (although I thought that's what the vigil was for). I would certainly hope that ED will be getting Zahra's remains to have a memorial in Australia, and decide for herself whether to cremate or bury her. I hate to think that EB & AB would have any say at all considering they are responsible IMO. I don't think KB would have a say as she is not next of kin unless AB was somehow allowed to arrange things and he took her advice.

    They may still be working out legalities and final arrangements.

    I seriously doubt the remains have been released. I think they are just announcing the memorial. I feel quite sure there will be a battle over them, and that is why it has not been decided. But as far as them being released, naw. Too soon.

    I'm not sure there will be a battle over them. Didn't AB say in his interview he wanted her buried in Australia?

    I think it is too soon for them to be released, but they wanted to have a service now that her death is confirmed, and the funeral/burial will take place in Australia. They might have a battle over where in Australia, I guess, but I doubt AB will contest her being repatriated. MOO.

    I think AB and his mom likely arranged it, since they didn't attend the vigil, but that's just my speculation. I think the public vigil was for the town, and this for the family/friends, from what I gather.

    Interesting post in the thread that you bumped Ducky, seems like the big wigs in OZ are already helping ED get her remains.

    Australian national news just reported that our Prime Minster, Julia Gillard, is personally overseeing that consulate officials assist Emily to bring Zahra's remains home. (source: Channel 7 News Australia). It was also reported that our PM was advised of the latest development some days ago.

    ETA: There was no mention of support for AB. Interesting. There was reference to Zahra's 'mother' (Emily) a couple of times.
