    Her blood was everywhere: It was between her legs and on the remains of the recently burned mattress partly hidden in the sand. And it was on the jeans worn by one of the two men who were with Lynette when she died.

    A coroner would later find Lynette bled to death from a sex act she was subjected to while so deeply intoxicated, she could not have consented. A forensic pathologist dubbed her injuries more severe than those which occur in even precipitous childbirth.

    Yet for five years, despite the urgings of the coroner and police, prosecutors refused to try the men charged with her death. It was not until June, under pressure from an outraged public, that they at last agreed to bring the case to court.

    Prosecutors have never publicly explained their reluctance to take the case. But Lynette’s parents believe the reason is both painful and obvious: Their daughter was Aboriginal. The two men accused in her death are white.

    Lynette Daley rape trial hears shocking evidence

    1st August 2017 5:00 AM
    UPDATED 5:53 AM

    WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT

    THE extent of Lynette 'Norma' Daley's intoxication at the time of a sexual act which allegedly caused, or played a significant part in the cause of her death on a beach north of Iluka, will be a key factor in the Crown's case against Adrian Attwater and Paul Maris.

    Mr Attwater is charged with manslaughter and aggravated sexual intercourse without consent over the Clarence Valley woman's death, while Mr Maris is facing charges of aggravated sexual intercourse without consent and accessory after the fact to manslaughter.

    Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the two Supreme Court trials are running concurrently in the Coffs Harbour courthouse.

    Yesterday afternoon, Ms Daley's mother and other family members and friends sat in the public gallery as Crown prosecutor Philip Strickland SC began his opening address to the court.

    Mr Strickland explained to the jury that there would be "a lot of evidence heard" about the fact Mr Attwater, Mr Maris and Ms Daley drank a lot of alcohol on January 26, 2011, prior to the acts which allegedly caused her death.

    The mother-of-seven's body was found on Ten Mile Beach in the early morning of the following day.

    One of two men on trial for the alleged sexual assault and manslaughter of Lynette Daley called her a "thing" and asked a stranger to drop her down the road just hours before she died, a NSW jury has been told.

    It is. Justice has been a long time coming for Ms Daley, her family, loved ones and friends.

    The New South Wales Attorney-General has issued a please explain to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) over its handling of the Lynette Daley manslaughter saga.

    Two men were yesterday found guilty over the 33-year-old's death, with a Supreme Court jury taking just 32 minutes to reach its verdicts.

    Despite a thorough police investigation in 2011 and coronial findings in 2014 which strongly recommended charges be laid, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions did not prosecute the men.

    The jury's swift conviction in the matter has led to questions about why the DPP waited so long to pursue Adrian Attwater and Paul Maris over Ms Daley's death.

    An ABC Four Corners program about the case in 2016 sparked public outrage, so director Lloyd Babb SC called in independent counsel, Philip Strickland SC, who ended up bringing the matter to trial for the DPP.

    Today NSW Attorney-General Mark Speakman said he had "spoken with the Director of Public Prosecutions and sought an urgent brief on the circumstances surrounding this case".

    "I've also confirmed that the NSW Government will continue providing support for the family of Ms Daley during the sentencing process," he said.

    The DPP told the ABC that as the matter was still before the Supreme Court "no comment can be issued".

    Sentencing will begin on November 3.

    This case has always left me with a terrible sick feeling.

    When I look at this photo of Ms Daley, I see a beautiful soul.

    Lynette Daley death: Adrian Attwater found guilty of manslaughter
    news.com.au
    September 7, 2017 3:32pm

    'Just three months after Ms Daley’s death, he [Maris] was in Grafton Local Court where a two-year AVO was taken out to protect his then-partner. In all, four AVOs have been taken out against Maris between 2005 and 2015 to protect four women in Casino, Port Macquarie and Grafton.

    Attwater’s convictions include resisting an officer in the *execution of his duty.'

    'NO JUSTICE WHEN WILL OF PEOPLE IS IGNORED

    COMMENT JANET FIFE-YEOMANS

    JUSTICE is the will of the people.

    It’s a proverb so simple and so common, I had actually found it once on a message in something as mundane as a Christmas cracker I had pulled one festive season.

    But when it came to the heartbreaking death of Lynette Daley, it turned out that even a cheap mass-produced Christmas insert made more sense than a decision of the state’s top prosecutor.

    Yesterday it took just 32 minutes for a jury to hand down the will of the people and justice for the dead 33-year-old mother. It was justice that Ms Daley’s family would never have seen if the DPP Lloyd Babb SC had his way.

    When he took over the top job in July 2011, Paul Maris and Adrian Attwater had been charged by detectives over Ms Daley’s sad and lonely death on a north coast beach.

    One of the first decisions on Babb’s watch was to drop the charges.'


    Lynette Daley’s family say they are vindicated by yesterday’s verdict.
    Source: Supplied


    'There is not enough evidence to establish that Mr Attwater committed the inlawful and dangerous act which led to Lynette’s death,” he wrote to Ms Daley’s family.

    Not only was the young woman too drunk to consent to sex with the men, her insides had been ripped apart. The injuries left her bleeding to death. But that, according to Babb, was not a crime.

    It was an inexplicable slap in the face for Ms Daley’s family and her seven children.

    The young woman had already had a tough life.

    Said by one of her sisters to be kind-hearted and wanting everyone to be happy, she had been a victim of domestic violence almost since her first boyfriend. “All Lynette’s partners used to belt her,” her sister told a 2014 inquest into her death.

    After The Daily Telegraph revealed the shocking injustice that her attackers had gone free, the will of the people swung in. Public pressure led to charges being laid.

    Lloyd Babb owes Lynette Daley’s family an apology.

    They are unlikely to get one.'

    Lynette Daley's rapists: Long criminal histories reveal violent past
    ABC News
    BY COURT REPORTER MAZOE FORD
    UPDATED 35 MINUTES AGO
    (as at 00:55 AEST 20 September 2017)

    'Two men found guilty of the rape of Lynette Daley, whose bloodied body was found on a remote beach, have long criminal histories featuring multiple police assaults, court documents have revealed.

    Ms Daley, 33, bled to death on an Australia Day camping trip at Iluka in 2011 after being violently raped by Adrian Attwater, 42, and Paul Maris, 47.

    A fortnight ago a NSW Supreme Court jury took just half an hour to find Attwater guilty of manslaughter, Maris guilty of burning a blood-soaked mattress to hide evidence, and both men guilty of aggravated sexual assault.

    On Tuesday Justice Elizabeth Fullerton released the NSW criminal histories of both men ahead of sentencing proceedings in November.

    Assaulting police just one of the crimes

    The documents list a range of crimes going back to when Attwater was a child and Maris was a teenager.

    Maris' violent history consists of:

    • Six serious assault charges between 1995 and 2005, including two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm
    • Two counts of assault
    • Two counts of assaulting police
      In 2005, he was ordered to enter full-time residential rehabilitation, commence drug and alcohol counselling, and participate in an anger management course
    • In 2015, he was sentenced to 12 months in jail for going armed with intent to commit an indictable offence and destroying property
    • Other convictions between 1988 and 2010 include malicious injury, possessing prohibited drugs, administering prohibited drugs, and multiple counts of drink driving

    Attwater's criminal history includes:

    • Two serious convictions for assaulting police in 1994 and 2010 - he was sentenced to nine months in jail for the second offence
    • Between 1989 and 2008 multiple counts of drink driving as well as speeding, driving while disqualified, driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, stealing, and cultivating prohibited plants

    DPP still working on 'urgent brief'

    Attwater and Maris are currently in custody awaiting sentencing for their roles in the death of Lynette Daley six-and-a-half years ago.

    Despite a thorough police investigation in 2011 and coronial findings in 2014 which strongly recommended charged be laid, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) did not prosecute the men.

    An ABC Four Corners program about the case in 2016 sparked public outrage, so director Lloyd Babb SC called in independent counsel, Philip Strickland SC, who ended up bringing the matter to trial for the DPP.

    The jury's swift conviction this month prompted the NSW Attorney-General to demand the DPP to explain their actions the following morning.

    Mark Speakman said he had spoken to Mr Babb and sought an "urgent brief on the circumstances surrounding this case".

    As of Tuesday afternoon Mr Speakman told the ABC that he had received the brief and asked for further information.

    The DPP said it would not comment.'

    Lynette Daley killing: 'It'll never go away', family tells NSW court during emotional testimony
    ABC News
    BY DOMINIK VUKOVIC AND MAZOE FORD
    UPDATED 25 MINUTES AGO (as at 15:52 AEDT 8 November 2017)

    ‘The mother of a woman who died after a violent sexual assault on a New South Wales beach says she felt like her heart had been ripped out when she learnt of her daughter's death.

    Key points:

    • Lynette Daley was killed during a boozy 2011 camping trip
    • A jury took only 32 minutes to convict Adrian Attwater and Paul Marris
    • Attwater, her boyfriend at the time, was found guilty of manslaughter’

    ‘In a statement to the court, Ms Daley's mother Thelma Davis said: "I still keep thinking she's going to walk through the door, the pain is always there, it will never go away."

    Ms Davis said her daughter's death made her feel like her heart had been ripped out.

    In a separate statement, Ms Daley's seven children said the conviction of the two men had been a relief but it would not bring back their mother.

    "We have had to suffer without a mother, it's been pretty rough for all of us kids.

    "We all have so many things we want to tell her, but we don't have the opportunity to tell her that.

    "These men have taken away the greatest thing any child could have in their lives.

    "I hope one day they look back and reflect on all the wrong they have done."’

    Attwater's girlfriend stands by him after he was convicted of rape and manslaughter of Lynette Daley
    ABC News
    BY MAZOE FORD
    UPDATED ABOUT AN HOUR AGO (as at 19:18 AEDT 9 November 2017(

    ‘The girlfriend of a man due to be sentenced over the violent death of Lynette Daley on a remote NSW north coast beach is standing by him, saying he is "a loving and gentle soul".’

    ‘Attwater's current girlfriend sent a reference to Justice Elizabeth Fullerton ahead of Attwater's sentencing hearing in the NSW Supreme Court in Coffs Harbour yesterday.

    In it, the woman wrote she was aware of the charges her partner had been found guilty of, but added she found them "hard to believe as he has never hurt me or anyone else … and in my experience would never hurt a woman".’
