Glad you are still there, Mr Watson.. I am just taking a break myself from a bit of nuclear physicisting..... I also teach Macrame * advanced* on the side..

any substance to this other man in ALlisons life?? friend, confidant, lover?? Age? occupation? location? height? weight? car? where met? how long for? Connections? other friends? now that the police have Allisons journal, which they have had from the start, is there another journal outlining this friendship? how did theycontact each other? where did they meet? when did they meet? was it on a regular basis?

I m not trying to be argumentative here.. its a reasonable line, if there is any substance to it.. I dont think there is, but you do...

I went to the Apple store today to ask this question, but got no answers. Up until recently the answer would be No. Now it's technically possible to store video streams, although legally the Apple Corp can not use them for any purpose. I haven't been given a clear yes or no on the matter. I guess, the police could have made a formal request for facetime video data aquisition as evidence.

I have about 20 pages to catch up on tonight (hope I don't fall asleep) it looks like there's been some news today re GBC's affidavit etc. I caught the channel 10 news and couldn't believe how much blood seemed to be visible in the luminol photos. Funny that it only seems to show up on the plastic parts of the car, not the carpet.

HI,the contents of the facetime call cannot be assessed or used as evidence.The mere fact that a call was recorded at the time when the currently accused had previously stated that he was asleep is quite compelling and can be used as evidence against him.The accused may argue that he was so stressed by all the turmoil surrounding the alleged affair,the money problems ,DV etc etc that he was non compos mentis (not of sound mind) and that he has no recollection of the events that occurred on that fateful night.Whoever answered the call could claim that it was very late at night and they did not respond thinking that the caller was a prank or a drunk perhaps...?I think that charges should be laid against any other parties involved forthwith.

Hi CC, It relates to a joke I had with Dr Watson. He seemed to accept the joke and joked back. Like I said before, I think he's a bit of a character and likes a joke. No offence was meant to him. He brings something 'new' to the forum. I too am sorry that you have been offended.

I am not upset.. I should have directed the question to Watson, in deed, mother goose, you are quite correct there, my mistake.


and since I did then redirect the question , I merely await a response, if one might be forthcoming..

Again, MG.. I apologise for directing the question to you with your answer, and not the direct questioner..

this is what happens when one mucks about trying to herd up neutrons, in stead of concentrating.

We'll probably never know the exact content of the conversation. This doesn't mean that the existence of the call isn't a crucial piece of evidence. As I posted earlier it effectively counters GBC's alibi of being in a deep sleep all night.

This isn't a good look to a jury and the defence team will be hard pressed to counter the prosecution argument that he has lied to police.

The only way that the defence can explain this discrepancy is to introduce evidence of their own, namely sworn evidence from GBC or the person on the other end of the phone. The problem with this strategy is that it then opens them up to cross examination and I wouldn't be advising either of them to step into the witness box.

Even if the content of the call is never determined, the mere existence of the call is a major problem for the defence.

MOO

Merlot also provided a link to this article, you may be interested (I was going to say you may enjoy it but that seems wrong);

Hi Trooper

I'm only just "still here"

I have absolutely NO evidence or facts as to a possible friend/lover that ABC may or may not have had. But I was asked to suggest a possible alternative to the scenario that most have assumed is the done deal. And that's a possibility. Not a probability - just a possible. Maybe there was something in the journal? Maybe she didn't write about this hypothetical person? Maybe even her closest friends didn't know?

All hypothetical, and very unlikely. But possible.

Having said that, I still think GBC is the most likely culprit. But, open minds and all that.....

And not a word of Latin used

The photos with the luminol look like there's lots of blood on the hard plastic surfaces but none on the carpet? Why? And looks like someone had blood on their hands when moving the seats down with the handles.
Perhaps they put a tarp over the carpet, not expecting blood to touch the sides? Perhaps the body was wrapped, but badly, and it leaked through the ends touching the sides?

I have been thinking about it as well..

My initial thought was about an arterial gas embolism. An air bubble is injected in a blood stream and prevents blood from flowing. In this case, the COD is natural, or undetermined. Cardiac arrest, end of story. The mechanism of death depends on the size of the bubble and the location of injection. JMO.

Believe me we've tried, her kids and friends have tried, the Counsellor at the Women's Centre tried, her GP has tried, the mental health team and hospital have tried to get her out. We know what he's capable of. Everyone has done everything they can. We and other family members at various times had her living with us for a few months but she keeps going back.

Maybe it'll help if you use the quote box then...save me being the ham in the old sandwich...lol.

Mothergoose...nup I'm not upset...was waiting to hear if you were going to elaborate any further on the statement you made Allison may have had a male friend/confidant....obviously now it seems it was just a passing thought you had....& yes it is a victim friendly forum

this was such a cold cold murder. A date set, a way out envisaged..


it had no emotion in it at all. ..


I wonder if Toni has thought since over these weeks, that she had every chance of winding up at the bottom of some lonely creek..... or even if the detectives who interviewed her put this highly likely scenario to her..


Probably they did, right after they dropped the news about Gerards other pants action. ..


the screaming.. I can just imagine that scream of pure rage.
