    To be honest I think they have brought a great deal of the negative attention on themselves.

    If they had handled the media with dignity and grace as the Dickies have from the beginning, there would be no need for them to be "fed up" with it all now. Boo hoo to them.

    My comments were for those previously unregistered. A BA with a major in psych is something that can be a foundation for further study and experience. But in all it's approx 7 years study/working in a supervised environment.

    A masters is required almost everywhere.
    Currently perhaps but not when she studied as I have friends and relatives who studied at that time ...

    There are other signs: hemolysis, elevation of plasma K+ level and depression of Na+ , cardiac arrest, acute renal failure. Decomposition in the air is twice as fast as when the body is under water and four times as fast as underground, and may take from several days to several months depending on environmental conditions. The body may remain identifiable for many months. Some tissues, such as tendons and ligaments, are more resistant to decomposition, the uterus and prostate glands may last several months.

    Can you imagine having to speak to someone you might feel killed your daughter.
    I also wouldn't be thanking him in any media either. As some have pointed out where is their thanks on behalf of the girls.
    How arrogant to ignore the hundreds who attended her funeral,the locals who apparently initially supported the BC's with food and such,the police and SES who have spent hours and hours trying to find justice for Allsion.
    Despicable,rude and arrogantpeople if you ask me!!!!!!!!!!!!


    No comment on the narky comment. That is also quite rude to say in a forum advocating the victim.
    Agree Curiousasacat. Contemptuous approach towards the Dickie family. It was their DTR who was brutally murdered, the mother of the grand DTRs. Where is the compassion for them in their grief?

    Who had a dry wedding?

    Possumheart it's really not relevant to the case but if she was a registered psychologist she had to have more study than just a BA majoring in psych. Nowadays a masters is really necessary for career advancement at minimum. I know this because it's my career!

    Even if GBC did not do this... I would still find the way he and his family have acted as being very strange. I mean, this is their wife/daughter in law, mother of kids/grandkids and there has been NOTHING!! Even just his family, apart from his sister saying a few things, where were the BC's crying at the loss of the mother of their grandchildren, their son's wife?? It comes across as though they are totally uncaring about the whole thing. Like it's just one big inconvenience to them. What the heck?

    If this happened to one of my son/daughter in laws, I'd be both upset for my child loosing their partner & grandkids loosing their mum, and also upset that I'd lost the in law.

    It seems they have no feelings. I know some won't agree, but this is my opinion. Where are their tears? Can't they at least cry over the fact those girls have no mother now, regardless of who killed her? All IMO. I'd show more emotion than they have if I saw a dog get run over.

    Hi Inanna,
    Allison and Gerard's wedding was a dry one.
    There is a media link and this was discussed at length in the last thread.

    Where is the compassion for a husband who has lost his wife and the mother of his children? Until he is arrested/charged/convicted, he is still a victim. Where is the compassion for the BCs who have lost their DIL?

    The BC's just aren't acting like they NEED compassion. Especially his family, they don't come across like they're overly affected. IMO

    Why would people come out and 'support' GBC when he hasn't been charged with anything? Allison is the victim here. His real friends are most likely supporting him in private not in the media.

    Many are saying how the Dickies are so great but personally I think their pointed releases to the media are narky...leaving out their granddaughters fathers name off things...even if he did take Allisons life he is still their father and that can not be erased.

    Not everyone wants to share their grief with the public, and I don't think they should be judged for not doing so just because 'we' want to dissect everything they say and their body language.
    I wouldnt call their releases 'pointed' or narky at all. Their daughter has been killed for God's sake. If they knew or suspected Domestic violence, knew about an affair their son-in-law was having, then their daughter is murdered and they suspected him, they may have a little trouble acknowledging him nicely and this is totally understandable! I think they've shown remarkable restraint to be honest.

    The happiness of their daughter would rightly be their main priority, and even if they didnt suspect him of the murder, just knowing he contributed to so much unhappiness for their daughter in her last years would be very upsetting.

    Earlier on this site, it was alleged that TM was accepted into the suspects family of origin. It is alleged she went to social gatherings with the girls, including after Allison was reported missing. The relationship between Allison and her husbands family must have been strained - as TM was accepted into the family and the 'affair' was allegedly common knowledge in the local community. MOO. As the Wiggles said to Jeff: "Wake Up!"

    I 100% agree with an earlier post {can't recall who} that the BC's have brought all of this on themselves... the way people feel about them. You can't go around smiling and acting like nothing has happened after your daughter in law has been murdered and expect anyone to feel sorry for you.

    Even looking at photos from the funeral, out of her family and the inlaw's it was only Allison's family looking upset. To look at GBC's parents it looked they could be at a day at the races. Sorry, but I just can't comprehend that. But then I'm an emotional person who has feelings so.. I suppose I could be over reacting to it. IMO
