    I'm wondering how much faith to put in The Sun's reporting. Then again, tabloids thrive on crime and many times have great sources, and are free with the checkbook to purchase information from them. It certainly sells newspapers.

    Yes, let's hope it is the much needed break in this investigation.

    Was the landlord correct when he claimed he saw Joanna leaving her home with two people?

I read somewhere in a recent report (Sorry I'm terrible with links) that she felt safe in the clifton area. Also if she was tipsy then her senses were probably distorted.

    I've always seen myself as quite streetwise but only since this case have I really realised how many times i've put my self in dangers way from walking places late at night alone. Clifton being a 'good area' obviously gave her a false sense of security.
    I also believe that the police must have checked out the boyfriend thoroughly. I reckon that they have and he can account for his movements or there is a lot they haven't told us and are waiting for him to slip up. That said I believe it is the former.

    I can't remember who asked in the last thread if Jo was wealthy. As someone else suggested, she went to private school suggesting so, however, I also read that her mother worked on a check out in the local supermarket Perhaps this suggests that they were a comfortable family but not rich.

    I am watching the press conference now.

    Her jacket, boots and one grey sock were not with her when she was found. The jacket and boots were at home however the sock is still missing. The sock is a long grey ski sock style. It is two tones of grey.

    He has then gone on to address the Hophouse pub CCTV footage and he says it was viewed very early on but it is not good quality (sounds as though he is using that as a reason as to why it has not been released).

    He has then gone on to say that it is a complex investigation.

    Edit: To say that the sock would fit a UK size 5 foot.

    You were doing really well then until Bernard ate the pizza .....

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Lol Destroyer, I was doing well, just forgot the cats name lol, well nobody else thought of the cat eating the pizza, I thought it would throw a little light on a sad subject, two glasses of red gives me a silly sense of humour.
    Whitedove.
    I know if my cat was left in over the weekend with no food... and there was a pizza out on the worktop he'd definately give it a go.... cheese is one of his most favourite foods! However.... I highly doubt he'd manage to open the box and remove the wrapper.... and then either eat the lot or dispose of it... he's a messy little bugger!

    On a more serious note.... just seen a press conference on the bbc news channel here in the UK..... they were showing a sock ... (I only switched over half way through, couldn't decide whether it was actually Jo's sock or just a replica.... it looked HUGE for a petite girl like Jo!) But the fact her body was found minus one sock is definately true.

    ETA.... got BBC News 24 on a loop .... and have seen the coverage of the press conference again. It's not Jo's actual sock, that is in a forensics lab. The reason for it being so huge is that it is a ski-type sock.... that goes up to the knee. Which makes sense as the weather here for freezing freezing cold with a lot of snow around the time Jo went missing.

    They are also certain that she DID arrive home on the day she went missing as her coat and boots are there.

    Lol Lalalemon, some cats have got strange tastes, I think one sock maybe in the lab, but the other sock has not been found, they would have known this sock was missing not long after her body was found, I think they are a bit late asking people to look for it now, it could have ended up in a bin, or gone when the pavements are cleaned.

    I was hoping for more from the press conference. I haven't seen much mention of the two people following her as recorded on CCTV.

    As it stands the landlord told police he saw three people leaving her home on the night she disappeared. He thought one of the three people was Joanna.
    For his trouble he was arrested.
    Why? I'm not saying he was treated badly by the arrest but the police don't usually make an arrest on a whim.

    Firstly Good Afternoon to everyone,

    Well now we know Joanna was'nt wearing shoes/slippers & that a sock is missing which to me definitely suggests she was killed/abducted from her flat - surely they can tell by the dirt on her feet whether the sock was likely to of been removed at the scene of where her body was found ?

    + also it might be interesting to find out if Joanna may of had a history of sleep walking ??

    + is it possible the killer may of left some sort of 'motto' in the flat which indicated some sort of crime had taken place ?? Hence why the police/family always belived she had been abducted/killed at the flat early on ??
    'IMO'



    Rest In Peace Joanna Yeates Rest In Peace Tia Sharp Rest In Peace Alice Gross

    it seems strange to me that bf did not act earlier on returning to flat and finding cat going bananas...starving and presumably had messed on floor....

    that ,plus non-returned texts and calls, would surely alert you quicker than 4 hours before seeking help....

    TBH the cctv footage that the mirror has as it's headline there is no way to see who anyone is at the distance the people noted were.
    the only thing for certain is that it shows 1 person closly followed by 2 people along a road she may have used to go home.
    It maybe her it may not.

    Viva the tabloids, they called it right. The Sun and the Mirror take the reportorial lead.

    The detective said he was also keeping an open mind about whether Miss Yeates was strangled with the sock. (Mirror)
    Not sure about that though. Keep an open mind, anything can crawl right in. Seems unlikely. A bit worried about the open-mindedness of police right now.

    Last night CCTV footage was released of two people walking 100 yards behind Jo on her last journey to her flat [and] timed them 27 seconds behind her at 8.45pm. (Sun)
    Mirror had earlier estimated 50 yards away and also 27 seconds behind. Not sure how one can be said except in the most literal terms to be "following" someone at that distance.

    But police admitted they did not know whether the mystery pair had been following Jo as she walked home alone. (Sun)
    Ah! Police can't be sure either.

    Mr Reardon, 27, did not raise the alarm until the early hours on Monday, December 20, because her lack of a response to his texts and calls was not untypical. (Daily Mail)
    Did we know of this "not untypical" thing? Hadn't heard that before. Seems to excuse certain behaviors.

    A close friend said the retired English teacher was hiring a leading London barrister and wanted huge damages from the police for wrongful arrest. (Daily Mail)
    We knew this was coming. If of course it wasn't him that did it.

    Man hands sock over to Jo police

    A man approached police outside Joanna Yeates's flat this afternoon and handed over a grey sock.
    Police then spoke to him at the side of the property.

    MORE to follow.

    TBH it doesn't surprise me.

    It would be the type of thing my b/f would do - he's highly intelligent but lacks common sense. He wouldn't be suspicious straight away and certainly wouldn't phone or text saying "where are you?"

    More likely my dad or brother phoning up and finding me not about and not being in contact either would alert them to something being wrong. And my b/f certainly wouldn't phone my family or friends to find out if they had seen or heard from me.

    I suppose it just depends on the type of relationship you have and the type of people you are - my brother and girlfriend phone and text all the time when apart whereas my b/f and I don't - he works away and it's not unusal to go a day or two without texting each other.
    Surely it's better to let a guilty man live then to let an innocent man die?
