    “It’s a personal matter.” But he said there was no incident on Saturday night that caused the woman distress'

    The flavour of things seems to have shifted a lot. Why is that?

    Surely all the info that has been slowly but surely leaking out was know right from the get go by Police or at least by the end of the day. If not why? Was there info withheld in the beginning?

    I don't know, I'm flip flopping all over the place....
    Me too!!! I was about to write that at the end of my post. I'm all over the place. I felt like I'd discounted my own vague theory by the end of writing it because IF there were concerns for her state of mind I feel like the police missing persons report would have said "concerns due to a medical condition" - and it didn't.
    However, the Police did say:
    "We don't know what she was wearing, we don't know at the time what her state of mind was, so it's difficult to gather all of that together and know what happened." BBM

    Whether that statement was 'significant' - I don't know.

    Do you mean The Gap in Watsons Bay? It's a notorious suicide spot, but not quite in Bondi. Or perhaps you know of a place that I don't. Quite plausible of course.

    No its Bondi from what I know. the gap is though another one, I can't think of the names now but was where the guy was accused and jailed for throwing his girlfriend off the cliff. Caroline ?? Later acquitted much to general publics disgrace. Gordon wood I think was his name

    it is down the road from me, everyone one AU knows about it. It has been since 1788 . A couple of blokes patrol it every night and day , in the hopes of preventing people jumping.. which they do with monotonous regularity.. of course. that's where Carolyn Byrne met her end, the court found Gordon not guilty, eventually.. . ... not many other places in Bondi.. , ...unless you trespass on peoples property! and they have it firmly fenced ...

    "I know that this is way off topic, but I am looking at the backyard picture of their Surrey Hills home. No pool fencing required in Victoria? Every pool here in SA must have specific fencing all around a pool. Fencing off the backyard is not enough."
    Just in regards to this, it is possible or was possible to not require separate fencing to the pool from the surrounding backyard as long as every door, gate and window to the area meets the requirements for opening dimensions, position and configuration of handles and locks, and all openings that are below 1m in doors and gates are self closing.

    also someone was talking about anti-depressants. remember that newsreader (from perth originally, but then worked in sydney) who suicided by jumping off the gap, she had just begun taking anti-depressants. If elisa had been taking them for a long time and there was no change in dose, then suicide would not be a risk factor, if she had just begun them or had altered any medication then it is a risk factor.

    finally i wanted to comment on trooper and someone else's conversation about methods of suicide in women. Trooper is correct that generally studies show that women think about the way they will look when found and tend to choose less violent means (unless of course they are psychotic or they have no other choice.) In hospital situations, and other places (like gaol) where subjected to close monitoring, cannot take overdoses or double bag themselves then if determined then what other methods are available...few which require innovating their surrounds such as using glass and cutting or utilising hanging points.

    Apologies if the last bit is a bit too much, i am kind of immune to be shocked when thinking about suicide methods now.

    I wonder if they have checked her google history?

    ETA. If someone was contemplating suicide I would assume it is something that would be researched unless it would be spur of the moment.

    Excellent spotting. And a very interesting comment. Puts a different spin on things, if true. Will keep an eye on the thread to check for updates/progression.

    excellent point, a plan is usually made and well researched...unless the person is psychotic or affected by drugs.

    Yes that's what I said in response to whether I meant the gap. I think I'm thinking Bondi as that is the local surf patrol that patrols the area.

    Probably another long shot, but I wonder if EC struggled with the fact that the family income was derived from the misery of others: poker machines (that's part of hubby's job, trying to get more machines in more venues and keeping them as profitable as possible by arguing to keep minimum bet amounts high).

    She's obviously an intelligent person, so this may not have sat well with her. And the 'private school' letter to the editor indicates that she might see the whole PS world as a bit..... 'see through' (my words, not hers). Some of this stuff *might* have contributed to her mental state. All speculation from me.
