    Amee, I thought that it wasn't long ago that provocation was deemed not reason for murder. Anyway with GBC it won't help him. He can hardly claim he was provoked with all his carrying on.

    I remember talk of a sketch of TM's house in Allison's diary. Can't for the life of me understand why. Wasn't it in GBC's handwriting? Ah, and that property also. What was that about?

    That is another mystery. I cannot find the link.....have spent days looking for the OW video clip, re GBC falling on a rock and hit his head.

    Yeah KTK, a few people have been looking for that video. I've never seen it myself. But I enjoy watching 'I was a little bit hurt, but I'm ok' video every now and again. It really shows GBC up for the liar that he is. Little boy voice saying he's told the police everything and thank you. This performance will not get him an Oscar.

    I'm not 100% sure but from memory that video was originally included in a Courier Mail report & the video has since been removed. It may turn up again somewhere one day.

    They have a clip of OW pointing to her head....that was part of the video.
    The video was an April 26th or so video and I have a feeling that it began with the men in orange searching....

    I know the one you mean KTK, but not sure if that is still around. Some clips seem to have been taken down.

    There's another clip from way back where OW is being interviewed briefly outside on the street, and she says something like 'Allison still hasn't been found yet" and there is something really off about her tone or inflection when she says found. Could never put my finger on it but it always made me feel uneasy. Actually it might even be in the same clip you are looking for. I'll have a bit of a looksee later and see if I have any luck.

    I read that too Makara, it's in the full affidavit, but it wasn't in MSM.

    Just a couple of points on this. To be picky, it's not actually carbon monoxide in the blood - it's carboxyhaemoglobin. That is the carbon monoxide that is bound to the haemoglobin, and that is why the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood is reduced. Carboxyhaemoglobin can survive in proper blood sample storage tubes for up to a couple of years, but I'm not so sure how long it would last in a body that has been exposed to the elements (as opposed to being in a mortuary refrigerator).

    The damage to brain cells etc from hypoxia and other effects of CO poisoning is mainly at the microscopic level - we're not talking about brain damage visible to the naked eye in most cases. Would be very obvious under the microscope, but much more so in chronic toxicity that has been going on for some time (eg the person with the CO-emitting leaky exhaust pipe) as opposed to acute poisoning (eg suicide by the old exhaust-hosepipe-car method).

    The main telltale sign of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning at an autopsy is the bright cherry red colour, particularly of the livor mortis - the staining of the lower parts of the body in the position of death by the blood under the effect of gravity. It is usually dusky, bluish-purple in colour. But in CO toxicity, it is bright cherry red - bit like a porcelain painted doll. Have seen it several times. Of course, we don't know if Allison's body had any signs of livor mortis, given that she'd been in several positions since death, from the back of the vehicle, then wherever she was placed, and finally tumbled and spun around in the flood surge. That can really muck things up in terms of signs like livor mortis.

    Re the fractured hyoid bone, much loved by CSI and detective novels: yes, a brute-force strangulation WILL often do that, but not by any means always. If someone knows what they're doing, and compresses the trachea well below the hyoid (eg someone with army training, for example) then that will cause bruising of the trachea but no fracture of the hyoid. A small point, admittedly, as the strangulation will still be obvious, but the hyoid will be intact. And of course, there is carotid compression, which can be applied from in front or behind, and again would be known by people with training (army, police, etc). That wouldn't fracture the hyoid either. If anyone here has ever watched UFC on the television (Ultimate Fighting Championship), you may have seen choke holds applied which render the opponent unconscious - and they don't get fractured hyoids. I'm well aware of several methods of doing that.

    However, I'm not sure why this has come up in the discussions here, as we have no evidence that Allison was either strangled or forcibly administered carbon monoxide.... we still have no idea of the cause of death.

    And yes, I've asked my contact at the Forensic and Scientific Services, but he won't tell me... of course :)

    Friendly reminder:

    We cannot bring into the discussion information that is only available in the full affidavit. The full affidavit has not been made available to the general public at this time, that I am aware of.


    Thank you for understanding.

    BBM I think that the reason this is has come up is because we are discussing what might have happened. That is all we can do because none of us actually know. Just as much reason to bring this up as anything else.

    Doc you are way too technical for me. I might have to get myself verified as an idiot, I think.

    I believe it OK to speculate on cause/manner of death. As long as it is not wild speculation. And as long as we say that we are speculating or providing our own theories on what may have happened!

    It seems reasonable to be speculating in those areas that lend themselves to what we know (have been told, led to believe) so far, no external injuries except the chipped tooth.

    Example: Strangulation seems feasible and a reasonable speculation. (No noticable external injuries due to decomposition?) Suffocation seems feasible and a reasonable speculation.

    And we can use what we do know to support or counter the theories!

    Mention of the alleged exact, specific "injuries" to Allison (internal), which are not public information, is to be treated as rumor and not allowed at this time.

    Hope this helps!

    Sounds like a plan summer breeze - it would be awfully boring not to be able to speculate from what we know and then gain others ideas on those speculations.
