As the previous thread is closed now, someone asked if AB was convicted would he be sent back to Australia. As far as I'm aware, the answer is no. He has committed a crime in another country and our government will not intervene. The Shapelle Corby case is a prime example of that (an Aus citizen convicted of a drug offence in Bali). It's in our government's best interest to maintain good relations and they would not want to be seen to question or interfere with another country's legal process, particularly the US.

Thanks! Shiny new thread!

Crazy plan, meth, NPD, of course it's a big mess. They probably thought it was foolproof, and they'd succeed where other, smarter people failed...and they likely believed it. The backtracking and flip flopping now could be disbelief that it didn't work the way they thought.

If AB has no knowledge then this would present as an abduction and therefore throwing off the police about the case and also throw off implications of EB.

As this did not happen then maybe EB had to play the abduction from another angle hence she has been forced to take a different scenario.

Just some thoughts to ponder.
Thanks, Beagle.



Yes, you're right. The investigation started with some whacked out plan of a ransom note and mulch fire. It was EB's plan to write that ransom note, then later in the day report Zahra missing. It's such a stupid plan. No one seemed to even notice Zahra missing. It must of been some kind of (drug) paranoia that made the parents report her missing. Now, I realize, this was just a horrible messed up tragedy that will never make sense to me.

Police piecing together timeline Zhara Baker's disappearance


HICKORY, N.C. - Police may know when the missing 10-year old Hickory girl was last seen alive.

Police issued the initial Amber Alert for Zhara Baker last weekend.

But now investigators believe she is dead and they say the last time she was seen alive was in mid-September ..............

Massive Search Underway For Missing Zahra
Posted: 10:50 am EDT October 14, 2010
Updated: 5:23 pm EDT October 14, 2010



SNIPPED>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Investigators are searching 5 acres. From Chopper 9 you could see police using a bulldozer to look under a pile of wood, while nearby cadaver dogs try to pick up a scent.

"They've asked us today to eliminate this property to remove it from the suspect list and when we leave here today that will be done one way or the other," said McDevitt.

Earlier this week, a K-9 unit alerted police to a wood chipper on the property. A K-9 unit dog handler told Channel 9 that the hit was not on the wood chipper itself but the engine, and the blood could have come from a cut on a worker’s hand.

.................................................. .......................................

Channel 9 has been able to confirm from police that Zahra, did make the move to Hickory with her family from Sawmills in Caldwell County and have confirmed that she was alive as recently as mid-September.

Police are still working to narrow their timeline since the 10-year-old disabled girl went missing.

Police said that the father, Adam Baker, has been 100 percent cooperative and has spent the majority of his time with investigators.

Police also told Channel 9 that they have more search warrants, but those court documents have been sealed by a judge. They have confirmed those documents involve searches of computer and phone records.

Investigators said they have received hundreds of tips and they are prioritizing those tips....

I just joined.

She writes the following:

So this seems to suggest that she moved to Australia to be with Adam. She was only coming back to the US for a visit and something changed with that plan and they moved to the US. I can gtee that she did not like living in an outback town, her persona would not have gone down there AT ALL.

I have a slightly different take on it. My take is that EB wrote the ransom note...then decided it wouldn't work and the best and most important thing in her list of options was to destroy the evidence. She doused the SUV in gasoline, stuck the ransom note (which she no longer intended on using) with/in/on the SUV and lit a match. Perhaps the gasoline was poured in such a way so that the mulch would catch, and then spread over to the SUV, thereby destroying the evidence, including the ransom note.

However, her plan got screwed when the fire department showed up sooner than she intended, and for whatever reason the SUV hadn't caught fire yet. The fire department found the ransom note, which was never intended to be found, and they've been winging it since then.

Here's my questions for everyone.

If she WANTED the fire department to read the ransom note, then WHY would she have put it in/on an SUV that was doused in gasoline near a fire? Why douse the SUV in gasoline if it wasn't intended to be lit on fire?

Can someone please post the photo of Zahra where she had dark short hair and she is sitting on I believe on the ground? Not the passport like photos but it's more of a candid shot where someone is standing above her.

If it's in the photobucket made for this case I would be grateful for the link. I can't find either of these things in my digging.

Thanks

Didn't we confirm thru the scannerettes that it was EB herself that called the fire dept for the fire? That confuses me as well - why would she call the fire in?
