    Joanna Yeates's body released to family for funeral

    Father says they feel 'lucky' they can give her a proper funeral after suspect Vincent Tabak appears in court for third time

    Monday 31 January 2011 18.47 GMT

    Excerpt: "During a preliminary hearing at Bristol crown court it emerged that Tabak's defence team had instructed Nat Carey, one of the UK's leading pathologists, to carry out a postmortem and after that examination last week, the body was released to the family, clearing the way for the funeral to take place."

    http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/UK-...-Trial-Is-Set-


    The Dutch engineer appeared at Bristol Crown Court via videolink from HMP Long Lartin, in Worcestershire, as a timetable for the trial was set out.
    In court, V/T was shown on a screen, seated at a table with his hands clasped in front of him, and wearing a red jumper and dark trousers.
    He appeared calm and relaxed as proceedings were relayed to him.
    A plea hearing was set for May 4, and V/T was told that a provisional trial date had also been fixed for October 4 at Bristol Crown Court.
    However, the judge, the Hon Mr Justice Treacy, stressed this was subject to "further consideration".
    He told V/T: "Your next appearance in court will be May 4 - do you understand?"
    V/T replied: "Yes, I understand. Thank you."
    The accused made no application for bail and was remanded in custody at the end of the hearing.

    I think that one reason why the girlfriend of VT would be more concerned after the murder is that she could have been staying at the flat while VT was in the US, and it would have been a greater concern knowing that she was staying there alone for 6 weeks just shortly before Joanna was staying alone for only a weekend ... and she was murdered.

    This also, to some degree, puts into perspective comments that Joanna was not seen around the flat much before the murder. Maybe people were remembering the time when VT was in the US, and perhaps, in fact, neither of them were around much during that time period.

    I noticed last night on court serve that Vincent Tabak was going to be via video link from Long Lartin in Worcestershire but any references made by the press, that I could find anyway, said that he had been moved to a prison in Gloucester. Now, even a Scot like me knows that Gloucester is in Gloucestershire (isn't it???)

    Again another example of the press talking mince.

    BTW I wonder why he appeared via video link. Is this the new way to save money etc? is it optional or would there have been some other reason?

    Beautiful picture of Joanna, makes it so real and so tragic for her family.

    After reading back through the threads I have a couple of things I would like clearing up in my mind. . A few times GRs alibi has been stated as "cast iron" I have not seen this reported anywhere does anyone know what his alibi is?. The other thing is the "Christening of his neices the twins" that got a mention a few times. I must have missed this one aswell, the grandparents didnt go as GR rang his mum as soon as he got home at 8pm on Sunday.

    Lastly if VT had been in the US in the run up to Christmas and GR and JY didnt move in until November he would hardly had time to "covert her" that was also mentioned a few times. VT would probably not have know what she looked like- its so bizarre and doesnt sit well.

    I tried the other night briefly and failed. Google it. The same settings must apply to all forums of this format (I assume)

    We dont know EXACTLY what the alibi is - well I have never heard the police say what it is. BUT I am assuming its the timings regarding his visit to his brothers up north and possibly cctv/mobile phone reception etc. I dont think the police would step over him to arrest/suspect/charge the neighbours if his alibi wasn't solid.

    When we had the press conference from the police where they stated that he was not a suspect - were they at that point able to analyse the DNA?

    Why hasn't VT's legal team applied for bail?

    From what I have read there many people who seriously doubt he is the perpetrator, even to the extent of raising funds for his defence.

    At this early stage would the defence team have been given details of the evidence related to the murder charge?

    Is the L/L still on police bail?
