    Jenny Cook: Media, Facts, Timeline and Maps **NO DISCUSSION**

    November 30, 2013

    TOWNSVILLE woman Jenny Lee Cook was quirky and fun, had an infectious laugh, and was conquering milestones from a young age.

    Her mother Lorraine Pullen recalled her daughter, with a big grin on her face, climbing to the top of a step ladder before she was 18 months old.

    "Her first attempt at putting on makeup (she was) about two - eye shadow, rouge and lipstick, and plenty of it. Like face painting," Mrs Pullen said.

    Jenny learned to ride motorbikes at four, enjoyed horse riding and loved her Boxer dog, Nikeisha.

    In happier times, Jenny and husband Paul Cook would often be seen walking Nikeisha around the streets of Douglas in the evenings.

    But on January 19, 2009, something "bizarre and unusual" occurred at their immaculate home.

    How did Jenny Cook die?
    TOWNSVILLE woman Jenny Lee Cook was quirky and fun, had an infectious laugh, and was conquering milestones from a young age.

    But on January 19, 2009, something "bizarre and unusual" occurred at their immaculate home.
    Mrs Cook, 29, was found dead, her body lying on a piece of plywood in the side garden by Mr Cook.
    Her death was "prematurely" deemed a suicide but there were many questions unanswered.
    Was she murdered? Did her husband do it? Was the police investigation adequate?
    Coroner Jane Bentley convened an inquest in Townsville this week in a bid to find answers to those questions.

    Knife in inquest spotlight
    Townsville Bulletin. Read More…

    THE lead detective investigating the bizarre death of a Townsville woman failed to examine the knife which killed her or ensure her husband's whereabouts were queried on the day of her death, an inquest has heard.
    -----
    Mrs Cook's body was found in the side garden of her home, with a large knife wrapped in string and secured with tape wedged between a security screen and wall.
    -----
    Earlier, Sen-Sgt Osborn told the court she did not come within 5m of the body, which was separated from her by a fence. She also did not know the knife was "tightly and meticulously bound" with string and secured with tape until viewing court documents a few days before the inquest.

    'Jenny's voice heard'
    Townsville Bulletin. Read More…

    LORRAINE Pullen says her daughter's voice has finally been heard despite a coroner being unable to determine if her death was suicide or homicide.
    Coroner Jane Bentley had no choice but to record an open finding, after police failed to properly investigate Jenny Lee Cook's death and prematurely destroyed the knife at the centre of the case.
    -----
    Police also didn't conduct further DNA analysis on the knife, which was tightly bound with string and tape and wedged between a security screen and wall, did not search for the string and tape in the house, or examine Mrs Cook's numerous diaries for signs she was contemplating suicide, or investigate if she could lift the piece of plywood her body was found on.

    Knife edge
    SMH. Read More…

    It's a quiet Monday night in Townsville and an ambulance radio crackles to life in the car park of the far north Queensland city's main hospital.
    It's a Code 1A: a woman in her early 30s has suffered an apparent cardiac arrest. Lights flashing, siren on, the two paramedics on board, Robert Haydon and Chris O'Connor, accelerate through the thinning evening traffic, hoping to find the woman still alive.
    The destination is a residential property in Douglas -
    -----
    It's the body of a woman, lying on her left side on a bloodstained plywood board, with her legs folded backwards. There are spots of congealed blood on her forehead and the left side of her chest. She's wearing shorts, runners, and a sun hat. Strangely, what looks like a section of a sheet has been wrapped around the back of her head, partly obscuring her face, and a bathrobe tie is secured around her throat.
    -----
    When the first police arrive at the scene, they find Paul Cook sitting hunched at the kitchen bench moaning. On another bench opposite are his wife's handbag and some documents.
    -----
    Within 20 hours of arriving at the scene on that steamy January night, the police decide that Jenny Lee (a woman who hated needles and blood and had a big enough stash of pain medication to overdose if she wanted to) had - without leaving behind any note -blindfolded herself, tied a belt around her neck, put a sheet over the top of her head and deliberately thrust her body on to the knife before slumping to the ground and bleeding to death.
    -----
    Lorraine says that both she and her husband have been in a personal hell trying to unravel what happened to their daughter. "I lie awake at night and it just goes round and round in my head. For 18 months afterwards I had this pain in the chest, like someone had stabbed me. I'm so frustrated and angry. If it had been [a police officer's] daughter, things would have been done properly. We don't think Jenny Lee would be capable of doing something like this.''

    Police yet to act on bungled 'suicide' investigation
    SMH Read More...
    Police have failed to act on a recommendation to take action over an apparently bungled investigation into the impalement death of a NSW woman in Townsville.
    -----
    Coroner Jane Bentley found Mr Cook evasive and untruthful in his evidence and said because of the problems with the investigation she could not make a finding of suicide.
    She recommended the Commissioner of Police consider whether any action should be taken into the inadequacy of the investigation.
    -----
    This week – more than six months after the ruling – the Queensland Police Service have not acted.
    -----
    The Pullens have called for the inquest to be reopened and for the suppression of the woman's name to be lifted.
    The coroner's office said the name was suppressed because of allegations of an extra-marital affair.

    Jenny Cook: Media, Facts, Timeline and Maps **NO DISCUSSION**

    Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I don't understand that if she plunged herself onto the knife, how could she have pulled it from her chest, moved and wedged it into the side of the screen. I would also question the mishandling by DS Osborn. Did she has any connection to the husband. How long does it take for a body to rigor. Couldn't Jenny have been slain early morning. What time did her husband leave for work? Also I question of all the things one might notice when you first come home from work, why did Mr. Cook take note a knife was missing?
