Also I have a feeling it was MaverickAu from early days, who spoke about the advice from the BC's councellor to do the '15 minutes a night discussion'. I could be wrong there, but whoever it was, that's obviously another rumour which appears to have turned out to be true. If it was MaverickAu, he seems to have been pretty spot on with many things he said way back at the beginning.

Sorry can't search to confirm at the moment.

Just further speculation. The unexplained screams still bother me as they were night piercing screams of someone in imminent danger. The screams heard were a female voice.
And perhaps her head was clonked against the wheel arch and she bled?

Mr Baden-Clay was involved in an accident on the way to Indooroopilly police station. Police allege there no brake marks at the scene and Mr Baden-Clay refused to answer questions about the crash.

They allege the crash was staged to "mask injuries or to cause self-injury".

The report says that there's only a smear of blood and below that, 'a drop'.

This doesn't match with blood dripping down doors and wheel arches covered in luminol imo.

Police examine the Baden-Clay's Holden Captiva SUV, which they had owned for eight weeks.

They allegedly found a "blood smear" in the rear of the vehicle and a strand of blonde hair.

Investigators alleged that the smear was "a contact smear" and resulted in "a further droplet of blood falling below the smear onto the floor of the vehicle". Police allege the blood was identified as Mrs Baden-Clay's, but examinations into the hair were continuing.

Fuskier, do you know how far from the house the screams were heard?

Without the release of such information and images, it all can become 'sanitized'. Seeing and hearing information 'grounds' the murder and keeps it 'real' for us. This may help elicit further information from locals who may have decided not to say anything about what they have known, seen or heard. Please call Crimestoppers if you have anything that you may know, have seen or have heard that may help the Police.

Mr Baden-Clay was asked to give a formal statement as part of the missing person investigation.

Police said he obtained legal advice and declined to be formally interviewed.

Police had noticed scratches on Mr Baden-Clay's right side cheek, which were photographed by scenes of crimes officers.

Mr Baden-Clay told the officer the scratches were caused by an old shaver.

In the documents, police said they appeared to be scratches "similar to scratches made by fingernails as they are not straight or clean cuts normally made by a sharp razor blade".

Mr Baden-Clay's parents, Nigel and Elaine, gave "brief statements" to police.

The investigators allege Mr Nigel Baden-Clay did not mention the Face Time call from his son's mobile phone.

Police investigators maintain that neither Mr Nigel Baden-Clay or Mrs Elaine Baden-Clay had consented to further interviews with police.

I know statement analysis isn't kosher around here and I have to agree a certain blogger takes things too far, but it is such an odd thing to say when you are cheerfully enquiring after your missing wife in a text. He probably had just got dressed, he didn't mention that for nought. It is significant to him for some reason. Unless Allison dressed him herself every day and this is why it is of note, I bet the washing machine and/or dryer were going when QPS showed up. He was having a right old spring clean that morning.

I know we can't tell other people what to write but if you are going to make up an alternate theory about other people than the accused being responsible it'd be ace if you made a disclaimer at the top that you are going to exclude the totality of evidence known at this point and cherry pick facts.
GO BAYBEE GO!!!!

Couldnt agree more.....

The "Red Zone" that the police put out as where the screams were heard is a couple of Km from the BC house, depending on how you go there. It is along the creek and parkland at Huntingdon, on Rafting Ground Rd. ABC could get there by walking up and over the school end of Boscombe Rd, then turn left. That way would be about 1.5 Km at a rough guess.

I strongly believe that the 2nd conundrum is not necessarily stupidity but down right arrogance, having that much faith in oneself that what they did was the right thing to do, that getting caught was a bump in the road, and that getting off will be easy.

Most cars/boats have polyprop carpet and bleach does not affect it.

Exactly what I think.....I think he folded her and her head was "clonked" against the wheel arch....and one of her orifices bled (nose, mouth, ear etc)

I have been reading....Can someone confirm to me, the lit up bit in the photos....Are they blood? or cleaner? If that is blood, OH MY FRIGGING GOD....Surely not.

is there more that i may have missed????
I would think the facetime call to dad may have some link to who helped do what here, and if dad knows, you would almost guarantee that mum knows as well.

It's also a good chance the TV was left on so as to cover up talking and movements from the children and/or neighbours.
Maybe the chain of events are going to be aided by what the children watched on TV that night, given the request for the programming guide from that night or maybe one of the children were disturbed during the night or remember someone being in the home at the same time something was on the TV.

OK - by way of being devil's advocate, as requested by somebody last night, here is a question of logic:

If we are speculating that those text messages were sent by GBC in the morning as a means of contributing to an alibi and appearance of innocence, presumably he would be doing so fully aware that his phone would reveal those. That, in fact, it was the desired effect.

If that were the case, then wouldn't it be reasonable that he would also be aware that calls - Facetime or otherwise - made during the night would also be revealed?

Could it be feasible (I'm not saying "likely" - just feasible) that the calls in the middle of the night WERE something which they want to keep hidden, for whatever reason, but that the texts in the morning were genuine?

Just a devil's advocate question - not saying that IS the case, just one possible explanation. How do we reconcile the fact that there seem to have been shonky calls in the middle of the night, yet the texts in the morning are supposed to be calculated for his alibi knowing that the phone would tell all?

Thank you. There are too many variables to conclude how far away a scream could be heard so my line of thought on that isn't going anywhere.

Apologies if a bunch of you have already picked up on this, but i have to catch up after working last night on conf calls.

I hope the QPS looks through past SMS's and determines if he ALWAYS signs off with "love G".

The FaceTime call was only discovered the day of the bail hearing (?). The phone had to be sent interstate to allow a team to access otherwise unavailable information. This would indicate IMO that the FaceTime call had been deleted from the phones 'log' prior to it being given to police.

"While I was standing outside we heard a third sound,'' Mr Truter told The Sunday Mail from his Brookfield property, about 4km from Mrs Baden-Clay's home.
