    She later cleaned the axe and knife.

    In terms of impact mark B , I could not determine if the axe was definitely the cause of such marks.

    When I look at the impact mark at B, I look at the impact in terms of its entirety. Firstly it was on the right hand side wall edge and it was adjacent to the front entrance doorway. I looked at its length, its width, depth of the markings. It was a plastered inside the wall at the corner of 2 adjacent walls.

    I looked at the characteristics inside the markings. There was damage on the adjacent wall, leading over to the corner of the wall that it is touching, as well as on the right hand side wall close to the entrance.

    Brown: I observed there was certainty of direction. The edge of the 2 walls was the weaker are of wall structure
    Brown: the marks had a beginning and an end, I could follow the course of the marks
    Brown: Ballistic terms - we look at striated* marks and indentations #vanbreda *Unsure of this term

    Looks like vB wanted the intruder bringing the axe in through the front door then, and swinging it around before he went on his killing spree.

    He just wanted to give them a fighting chance by warning of his approach. Why use a doorbell to announce your presence when you can wield an axe against some walls.

    Yeah, and why use an unlocked back door when you can morph through a locked front door..

    Hang on, that must have been before he'd raided the larder for the axe.

    Penny dropped - He wanted them to think the axe didn't come from the house. He never thought anyone would remember the axe in the pantry. Poor Henri, his story is falling apart every way you look at it.

    Brown: Fig18 the impact mark mentioned in 5.4 against eastern side wall with the top share edge of axe placed into this mark
    Brown: fig 19 is the same impact mark with the same sharp edge of the axe placed into the impact mark
    Brown: fig 20: same impact mark top sharp edge of the axe placed into the mark its a close up photograph
    Brown: concluded its consistent with a controlled share edge movement. I looked at where the mark was- the eastern side wall
    Brown: above the staircase rail, inside the house
