    Strangeworld, I too wonder about the resting place being right under that bridge. I know how fast water can flow. But what if ABC's body was only put in the resting place just before discovery? It seems to me that GBC was eager for her to be found re insurance claim, so why risk that this might not happen - for a long time or never. IMO, her body was placed under the bridge so it would be discovered. But when???

    I saw mention of GBC renting. My research found that they owned a home in Toowong (hope that's spelled right) in their company name in 2004, it was mortgaged for about $300000. I am not sure if I can name the company here. I can't find what happened after that.

    Oh no. It's TEXTBOOK behaviour for an image driven person. It's all about how it LOOKS. Dig a little under the surface and you find a mess. People who don't care what others think can live in tiny houses, drive *****box car, wear cheap clothes, and you may have no idea how much money they have. In my experience the wealthier someone appears to be the more likely it is they live hand to mouth. Too busy keeping up appearances to actually save and invest. They spend everything they have and more in the attempt to keep up the facade. JMO.

    It's such a curious thing - I was so certain initially that she must have been placed there, but after reading the posts here from people in the local area and those who've visited the bridge, it does seem a definite option that she did wash down.

    I'm really not sure about her body been moved after she was reported missing though. The police would have been watching the family very closely I would imagine. It would have been so risky with the QPS eyes on them, as well as locals who would have been hyper-vigilant in those early days when she was missing.

    I imagine GBC was getting panicked they may never find her! He may have even considered joining the search. I found her! :what:

    This news article below is a direct quote from the Judge at the bail hearing and it's in regard to the issue of flight risk. After reading this can anyone tell me how they interpret the word property in this sentence. Does he own the property, manage the property, or what?

    Does it mean he has assets and isn't in a dire financial state? Another poster mentioned today about going bankrupt and selling everything you own. Maybe and just maybe in my opinion because I don't have a clue, Allison took responsibility for a financial mess and she claimed bankruptcy.

    MSM

    "The applicant may have property and other relationship ties within Queensland ... but that would not necessarily prevent flight in someone who was determined," he said.

    Sorry if this has been answered already (just catching up on the days events), but yes, the prosecution can ask for an extension. They would have to have a very good reason though as courts don't like leaving people locked up indefinitely with no clear timeline for committal, trial etc. Hence the comments from the Magistrate today.

    Ollijack, I think that face in your avatar needs a big sunflower in his hair. Preferably one with a caterpillar or two. [​IMG]

    I think that's an interesting observation that all the loans made to GBC have been by non-financial institutions - either the previously bankrupt theory could apply, or perhaps the banks wouldn't touch him because didn't think he had the means to support repayments .... and as we have learned .... doesn't appear to have.

    I thought WOW when I read that over 300 witness statements have been prepared ... and wait, there's more to come. My head then jumped to what it might cost for the defence to peruse all this documentation and prepare counter arguments. That alone has got to run to simply hundreds of hours .... translated into dollars, the mind boggles. And this is only part of the process. I really can't fathom how GBC will be able to keep the legal team involved unless they are doing pro bono ... and why on earth would they?

    Sorry if this has already been mentioned but channel 7 news said the magistrate at the court today criticised the police and isn't happy about the progress of the case.
