    Now that it's here, I'll put money on the Daily Telegraph saying something about bipolar tomorrow.
    Agreed Fruity, especially since DJK has mentioned that he is bipolar.

    I agree. To be fair, a defence is always going to include possible mitigating factors whether the defendant has mental health issues or not. That's assuming DK pleads guilty and doesn't insist someone else did it.

    I just can't get my head around the fact that DJK was actually in MH's unit and his bedroom. How did he gain entry without being invited? If MH didn't want him there and put up a struggle, why was he naked from the waist down? I just can't see DJK being able to de-pants MH before during or after the stabbing without MH putting up a fight.
    Agreed. There's just something to it all that to me seems more prearranged, or at the very least they knew each other, not DJK stalking MH.

    Omg, I had forgotten the possibility that MH didn't invite DK into his flat. Now I have to put that back in my list of theories. Although police did say they thought DK was allowed in because of the cctv footage and no signs of forced entry. Maybe they have other evidence he was invited in

    From the bit at court today about DK needing to understand the implications of giving DNA it sounds like police haven't yet matched DK's DNA to any in MH's room or on his body. Only MH's DNA on DK's satchel and glasses.

    I can only imagine how many warning bells he set off at his first interview with the police. If what we are reading online and in MSM is correct, he would have presented as someone who is a bit off (definitely no reflection on people with mental illness or other disorders). I think I mentioned a while back that his mind is likely a messy mess and it's looking more and more like that. So much going on in his head.

    I am all for some level of empathy when people with diagnosed disorders commit crimes, but not at the cost of putting society at risk. If a hospital is a better place for someone, so be it. But if it turns out that he has killed Morgan, he is a danger to others - and therefore should not be walking free. I wonder if he has been getting regular psychiatric treatment and if he is on medication? Noncompliance with treatment could indeed factor in here.

    Head spinning from today's little findings!

    I wondered if he was having regular psychiatric treatment too.....the description of him as 'docile and slow' fits with somebody who is medicated.

    But a lot of bipolar sufferers stop taking their medication as they don't like feeling flat and zombie-like compared to the thrill of the manic high. Would love to know.....

    He described it as 'bipolar depression' so I'm putting money on Bipolar
    2 rather than bipolar 1 (classic bipolar).

    Bipolar II disorder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If this is the case, he wouldn't experience the same manic highs.

    Bipolar used to be known as manic depression, and some people still use the term interchangeably. He may have been getting these 2 terms mixed up, so instead of saying bipolar disorder, he said bipolar depression.

    I keep wondering when he slept. If he was hitting the café scene most days, buying and eating takeaways during the day, and working at night. I can't remember now if it said how often he worked? Maybe he slept early evening before his late shifts. Sleep can certainly impact on mood and the management of bipolar.

    Also, I'm wondering if he did have another mental illness it might not have been obvious he had relapsed or was getting worse because of his Asperger's. Like perhaps a preoccupation had developed into a delusion. Would love to know if that ever happens for people with both an autism spectrum disorder and a psychotic illness. If he wasn't very engaged with people around him, who would notice if he became paranoid, had racing thoughts, grandiose ideas etc? Family and doctors might but even they miss things.

    Good point! His world would have been very internalised - very few people, if any, would have had any idea what was going on in his mind, I'd imagine. The Asperger's would make him very insular.

    And absolutely his thoughts could easily have escalated from preoccupations into full blown delusions. From what we've read of his online postings, he had a lot of strong emotion going on inside but I doubt anyone could see that externally. In all his photos he presents with very flat affect.

    I don't think DJK was lurking anywhere. IMO MH was waiting for someone, gave up and walked off, DJK came running after him and caught up at the lights. They then walked off together. Whatever may have been arranged will be revealed in the evidence. JMO


    On the night in question, the kitchen hand allegedly worked at the Military Road cooking school, cleaning up after a private function on Saturday night, finishing at about 1am.

    Security cameras outside the Oaks Hotel captured a man in chef's pants, carrying a satchel, running after Mr Huxley as he left the pub at 1.30am. It is alleged that man was Mr Kelsall and he caught up to Mr Huxley at a set of traffic lights outside a Thai restaurant.

    the magistrate is doing the right thing by directly making sure the defendant is being given his full rights of understanding the process
    it will also let him soley communicate with the defendant giving him insight into how intellectually and mentally impaired he may be
    in spite of the horror that has happend the defendant is still a person who has rights through the legal process and especially if they are suffering from an intellectual disability id say its standard court procedure for the magistrate to do
    this disability the defendant was born with he had no choice in that its what his life chose for him i cant comment on whether he was provided with intervention for this in his past i have no idea
    maybe people like this should have constant intervention from when they are first diagnosed not just as children but throughout their whole lives weekly with mental health teams
    im sure we will find out more later on its easy to lash out but it doesnt change anything my question is who was responsible for his treatment and care??? i could make some other comments on his interests and hobbies which hardly seem appropriate for him to be doing with his problems most like made him worse but thats my opinion

    I very much doubt they would go down that path, it opens up all kinds of implications. It is not a complete defence, but if accepted, accused may be detained indefinitely in a forensic facility.
    Also, it may be that some of the accused's behaviour following the murder would rebut the defence of mental illness. JMO - not implying anything specific.

    The court heard a discussion over whether Mr Kelsall would need to appear before the court later on Tuesday to have the DNA procedure explained to him.

    It was not a hearing, the police application for forensic procedures was adjourned to 2pm because His Honour wanted confirmation that the accused understood the nature of the application.

    ETA: Had the accused appeared via video link this morning there would have been no need for the adjournment. Some magistrates may have let it go, this one didn't come down in any last showers for a long long time
    Doing things this way means there can be no repercussions in the future against police or anyone else with claims of 'I didn't understand what it meant, etc etc'. Though the order could be made without his consent.
