    If Trent was such an accomplished dancer, why is there nothing about him on YouTube?

    I cant believe Thorburn murdered TIa to 'save his son'.. that's absurd ...... I can see how Julene entered into this game with dedication.. what would a grieving foster mother do?.. she would stand together with the bio-mum and hold her hand and work with her, and for her, and present her self to the community as a grieving and baffled foster mother, collecting Dancing awards on behalf of the 'missing' child, .. holding birthday parties , complete with pony rides , for the 'missing' child,... yet this is a woman who knows her husband has murdered this child. I claim she knows where he dumped her body, too. But she can present this façade , without break.

    What in hell went on in that home when the sun went down? . .

    And the Jolly Planker, he of the Alpaca coiffure, Mr Dancin Feet, Queenslands own Hair Bro.. his performance has been outstanding. . Keeping up the twitter, the Instagram, the social forays, the endless chatter and banter, the various fashionista battles, holding up Mum and Dad in their grief, .. carefully photographing himself , partly nude, with a gamin like serious look on his little face,..... look at moi, I am your next idol... ...

    Of the older brother, I cant see him clearly yet. I expect that to change. I had wondered if he was slightly intellectually challenged.. All I know is, he had qualifications for working with Mum in the day care business she ran, what those quals were I don't know, yet there is something odd about a bloke who wants to take that on at his young age, but maybe that's just me. .. unless, there was something in it for him , apart from a meagre wage.

    I agree with you! I will say that I thought perhaps it was a twisted Romeo and Juliet story, Tiah was killed perhaps in some scuffle accidentally, and they all went about trying to keep a "normal" life profile so no one would suspect anything. This, to me in this devastating tragedy, was a less evil way to look at it and think about it. Rather than thinking this poor girls life was nothing but horror for 10mths.

    Jesse Grund's comment on the Anthony family comes to mind with this family: "A carnival of dysfuctionality".

    I'm sure that option will be played up by the accused. There is no 'normal' in hiding the death/murder of a child/person and disposal of their body. It's psychopathic, these people (FF and FM) lack empathy, conscience or decency. They choose to use children for money, sex and whatever else comes to mind.

    "THE head of the state’s peak child protection group has slammed an over-reliance on the Blue Card system, warning it can be used as a licence to offend.

    PeakCare Queensland executive director Lindsay Wegener said the scheme was seriously limited because it could only screen out people with a history of offending.

    “If I had not been caught, the first thing I would do is get a Blue Card,’’ he said.

    In the wake of charges against the foster family of murdered 12-year-old Tiahleigh Palmer, Child Safety Minister Shannon Fentiman has announced the Queensland Family and Child Commission will conduct reviews of the assessment and approval processes for foster carers and Blue Card holders."

    These are my thoughts exactly. The blue card is useless if it can be obtained and waved around by a pedo who has never been caught.

    It does stop those who HAVE been caught, but it's not enough.

    So publicly teaching kids maybe they're not allowed to take video or photos.

    Yes if you look under the studio name, I think you will find videos. They normally on put them up as the team not just one person, unless its a solo, even then its still under the dance school.

    There's some serious sleuthing going on here. Just drank 3 cups of tea while taking in the posts since I last logged on.

    Awesome digging on previous whereabout using sensis, ABNs. Disturbing there are recent arrests in the same area.

    I imagine they used their animals for income, dog and horse breeding. Plus perhaps money laundering through the small businesses, it seems there were several at least. Some serious knowledge of book keeping would of been necessary.

    Apologies for ruffling feathers regarding labelling TT a paedo.

    I'll make use of IMO in future.

    IMO they are ALL paedophiles.

    I had not personally heard the term hebophiles before, thanks Freya for that info. Interesting.

    Seems these deviants had a wide appetite and age was no barrier. 4y.o, 11y.o, 12y.o and now another 'teen' although not sure what harm was inflicted on this victim. Also other children in their care interviewed. Speak up, little ones - the world is listening!

    Just want to say that Aussie school systems aren't always operating at functional levels, especially where multi level reporting comes into play. Tiah may have spoken to staff. Wheels turn slowly, get lost in red tape. Although they are meant to some schools dont have counsellors or nurses. I know first hand of a school who did not have a nurse for 6 months, then she was employed only a few hours a day. Cost cutting is on all fronts. Sounds like Tiahs concerns were readily dismissed by DOCS, a reputation as a difficult child, a run away and a liar. We've known kids to be publicly labelled as 'liars' to the entire school. Real concerns were not invesrigated or took months. My point is some of these kids really do fall through the cracks with high staff turn over, constant relief teachers and kids getting lost in the masses. The amount of admin work on teachers shoulders means genuine face to face time is limited. While each department is finger pointing the next government department I think Au state by state school systems warrant a light shined upon their part in this. Teachers are in demand. It's one of the easist degrees to obtain. Our schools are flooded with newly graduated under prepared teachers and volunteers - all you need is a BlueCard to apply 😨

    Also did J & R choose the school for Tiah? Most likely catchment. Did they know the teachers? Usually the culture is built principal down. Not implying anything, just worth considering IMO.

    To me it sounds like Tiah was desperate for help, her behaviour paints the picture of a child in distress, desperate to escape. Grandma says she could leave anytime but previous foster family says they couldn't get her back. Tiah was restricted.

    I hope more Children are listened to. Let Tiahs death (and others we don't hear so much about) not be in vain.

    RIP Tiah and strength to your Mum, Whanau and family. May your Angel Tiahleigh be forever dancing and shining light into the darkness.

    I think Rick Thorburn was hoping for deviant sex with Tiahleigh. I wouldn't be surprised if he raped her before or after he murdered her. What a disgusting bunch of psychos that family are. Rapists and enablers.

    Horses.

    Pony rides at Tiahs "birthday" party. I imagine it would of been one of R&Js. Another steady access to children. Drop off riding lessons, all day trail rides, dressage etc events and overnight camps for children are all typical in horsey crowds.

    The Logan are is famous for it.

    Judging by the other stuff that has come out about RT, my theory is that he was already harming Tiah. I think she was too terrified of him to tell anyone so she spoke out about the son instead, hoping to get help.

    It breaks my heart that she told her friend's relative that she was too scared to go home and that she was in trouble. The poor kid was murdered days later. She made it sounds like it was about school but I think it was much worse.

    Just a thought... What if Rick killed Tiahleigh because his son confided that he was worried he had gotten her pregnant, but Rick panicked because it could have been his child???
