    Just a few additional tweets from Molyneaux at end of last week, regarding the cigarettes and the kitchen drawers https://twitter.com/AJGMolyneaux

    They were on the left edge of kitchen counter. Packet was ripped open and left on counter, butts were just to the left of counter on floor.
    Drawers were slightly open. All 3 from top to bottom. Pantry door open.

    Candice Brown called to the stand. She is a Captain attached to the ballistics section of the forensics division.

    She has a degree in Human Life Sciences; Honours degree in genetics.

    She visited the scene in January 2015. She was on standby and got a call to go to 12 Goske Street.

    She was told an axe was used at a murder scene and there were impact marks they wanted her to examine.

    Impact mark and damage consistent with possible uncontrolled impact
    Observing damage in 5.1 to 5.10 I matched the A and B and found the breakage pattern of A physically matched the breakage of B
    Piece of breakage marked A was sealed by me in an evidence bag and kept on my person
    I physically matched painted cement marked C into the impact mark onD and couldnt determine if C was/wasnt part of structure above
    stair case railing. Piece of painted cement marked C sealed in evidence bag by me

    In February 2015 she compiled a report.

    She observed one piece of painted cement laying on the floor at front door entrance; one impact mark with damage caused by adjacent to front entrance area.

    One piece of painted cement on staircase; an impact mark consistent with sharp edged movement above staircase rail; powder particles, like cement powered particles on staircase rail.

    A piece of tile fragment on staircase with same appearance of tile on staircase floor; impact damage and particles consistent with breakage damage on the 17th stair; impact damage consistent with a sharp edged tool movement in the tile area in the first bedroom.

    Piece of tile fragment on staircase floor lying in debris ; one impact mark in bedroom.

    Brown physically matched D and E and couldn't find if D had once been part of E
    Brown: she made casts of the areas which had pieces of cement removed from them
    Brown physically checked the tile fragment marked G to the damage on the tile marked F- couldn't confirm once part of G

    I'm prepared for a delay of perhaps a couple of months. Some courts (maybe all) go into recess for the whole of July. I've made an enquiry about the Western Cape High Court and if I hear back I'll let you know.

    Just by way of example, the Panayiotou trial ran for 8 weeks until 6 December. The court was in recess during January. The trial within a trial lasted for 2 weeks in April/May. It resumes today and will continue for the whole of June. The defence hasn't even started.

    We still have a long way to go.
    Thank you JJ!

    Wow, how frustrating to have it put off like that. Even worse, how galling to know HvB will continue to enjoy his freedom in that time.

    B Represet is a specially formulated fast curing 2 part silicone rubber we use to make flexible high resolution replicas of marks
    Brown: it is a rubbery substance I place into the tool mark which then takes on the format of the impact mark
    Brown: I did not have the supposed weapons when I visited the scene, I didnt see them before I drew up my first report
    We made casts so that once I receive the tools I could microscopically compare the tools and the marks
    Brown the drafted second report when she received the weapons
