Just some snippets, I'm doing some fast reading to keep up. The timeline has really been all over the place.

Mr Davies, a 29-year-old Qantas flight attendant, and his partner, 26-year-old former TV presenter, Mr Baird were last seen on February 19 (M). Police charged Mr Lamarre-Condon, 28, with two counts of murder.
[---] A happy photo of the couple at a Pink concert was also posted to Mr Baird's Instagram account on the evening of February 20 (T).
[---] The alleged murderer was accused of "predatory" behaviour during the relationship and he was suspected of breaking into Mr Baird's Paddington home multiple times, police said. (link5)
Police are calling for information about the movements of a hired white Toyota HiAce van, with registration CW82PM, between February 19 and 21 (M-W). [---] The van was captured on CCTV footage at Mr Baird's Paddington home on February 19 (M), shortly before the men disappeared. [---] The van, hired from Sydney Airport at Mascot at 9.30pm on February 19, was allegedly used to transport and dump the bodies, police said. (link5)
Neighbours of the Paddington home reported hearing shouting on the morning of February 19 (M) but police could not give details about the nature of the argument.(link5)
Police sent a patrol car searching for the source of a triple-zero call that was made from the mobile phone of Luke Davies at 9.54am last Monday (19th) – four minutes after gunshots were allegedly heard in the Paddington terrace where Davies’ boyfriend Jesse Baird lived.
But that phone was disconnected without any communication, and because it was registered to Davies’ home in Waterloo, the police tasked with “concern for welfare” job patrolled Paddington but with no specific information to go on. The phone’s signal was triangulated to the suburb, without an exact location. (link1)
Deputy Commissioner David Hudson said police had not determined whether the triple-zero call was made by Davies. (link3)
"On Tuesday, February 20, we will allege that partial admissions were made by the accused to an acquaintance of having been involved in the death of two individuals," Hudson said. (link6)

Wednesday, February 21

[---] At 11pm, Lamarre-Condon is alleged to have bought weights from a department store before returning to the same property in Bungonia. Police claim he may have been suspicious of his friend and may have returned to the property to remove the bodies. (link2)
The woman who travelled with Lamarre-Condon is co-operating with police. She has told them she was not aware of his alleged crimes, what he was doing on the property, or that there may have been two bodies in the back of the van. (link3)
Hudson emphasised that the acquaintance, a woman described as a "long-term friend", was in no way a suspect and that there was no indication she was aware of the alleged murders. (link6)

Thursday, February 22

Police say their timeline on Thursday still has some gaps in it, and have appealed for public assistance to help fill them in.
What they have said is that Lamarre-Condon had the white HiAce in his possession throughout the day, allegedly leaving Bungonia for Sydney at about 4.30am.
Later in the day, he is alleged to have driven to the property of a different acquaintance – a former police officer – property in Newcastle, where he asked for a hose to clean the HiAce "without disclosing any criminality".

News of Baird and Davies' disappearance breaks around lunchtime, before police hold a press conference where they appeal for public assistance, saying they hold "grave concerns" for the missing men.
In the evening, it is reported police are searching for a serving officer over the couple's disappearance.
At 11pm, officers raid the home of one of Lamarre-Condon's family members in the Sydney suburb of Balmain, where they seize several items. (link2)

They also allege, based upon claims from Baird's friends, that Lamarre-Condon went to Baird's home after the pair broke up at the end of 2023, getting access to the property with a key, taking Baird's phone and deleting contacts and messages from the device. [---] (link2)
Hudson said police are investigating earlier incidents involving Lamarre-Condon at the Paddington home, including a time he allegedly entered the property to access Baird’s phone. (link4)

Hudson said police were concerned the bodies may have been moved from the Bungonia address and disposed of at a different location during a gap in the timeline. (link3)
 
I wonder if he was wearing his uniform or even just a shirt indicating police so if he did encounter the property owner or someone else, he could bluff his way well enough to say he was on "official" business of some sort? Maybe just flashing his badge or credentials if needed.

Imo.
i was thinking more along the lines that perhaps he told his friend that he had to go to the property to retrieve something? someone from that property has been alleged to be his ex. or he said he was going there to talk to that person but found they weren’t there, but the friend was brought along under the pretense that they’d be his back up if there was a confrontation.

he was 100% scouting the property to see if anyone was home, using his friend as an excuse in case someone was there and he needed an explanation. that’s why he returned later and broke in to dump the bodies.
 
3. The gun and how BLC was able to use it for the murders and then check it back in without accounting for the missing bullet(s) when he returned it! A third huge missed opportunity by the police - and one that beyond investigating mere protocols for checking in and checking out guns needs to be explained and accounted for by the police. Why was a gun able to be returned with missing bullets and casings - and why were no immediate questions asked at the time?
this has irked me from the moment they revealed that he had used his gun. perhaps it’s an american thing from shows i’ve watched but i swear i’ve seen somewhere that each bullet needs to be accounted for when it is returned. and they should be. like if they use it in self defense and there’s 1 bullet in the perp but 3 bullets missing, those bullets need to be found and/or accounted for, even if they misfired or someone took control of the gun and fired a shot.

he could have simply replaced the missing bullet/s but there has to be a way for them to check that upon returning the weapon? serial numbers? anything?? i’m not well versed in guns and definitely not in police protocols but it makes sense that they would pay extra attention to guns when they are returned. it just boggles my mind.
 

Celeb chaser-turned cop Beau Lamarre-Condon made moves to pursue a new career in acting just days before he allegedly murdered his ex-boyfriend, Channel Ten presenter Jesse Baird, and his new partner, Luke Davies.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal Lamarre-Condon, 28, contacted an acquaintance who works in the entertainment industry two weeks ago asking for help putting together a showreel - a short video showcasing an actor's previous work.

Lamarre-Condon told his contact he wanted a demo tape for acting work, having set up a secondary Instagram for his creative pursuits under the name 'Beau London', which described the senior constable as an 'actor based in Sydney'.

'He asked for a showreel,' a source said.


:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
This report and whats currently playing out I feel like he has got his holly woodblockbuster...Maybe this was what he wanted - to be all over the tv, in the media... his movie that everyone is watching.... At the expense of two beautiful souls
 
Isaac Muller, a friend of Jessie's, makes an appearance in this small report and minimises Jessie and Beau's relationship. The comments were "Jessie had and encounter with Beau, He was not his ex boyfriend!"

Sounds like the relationship might have been nothing more then a few dates and it was done.

 
A happy photo of the couple at a Pink concert was also posted to Mr Baird's Instagram account on the evening of February 20 (T).

If they were murdered/attacked at ~9 AM on February 19th, Monday - then this Insta post about the Pink concert was done by the murderer. Probably trying to confuse the timeline, IMO. Especially likely as he already "partially confessed" to someone on the 20th as well.
 
I also believe that Lamarre is much smarter than he appears. From fragmentary information, his plan becomes apparent. First, he had been nurturing a revenge plan for months, monitoring Luke and Jesse, and carefully choosing the best time of day to strike. He opted for a busy morning when everyone is occupied and reluctant to interrupt even if they hear gunshots. It worked; none of the neighbours reacted.

Furthermore, his movements around the city may seem chaotic on the surface, but they are undoubtedly calculated to throw off any trails and create a confusing picture. Currently, the police are searching for bodies in the ponds on the farm. Maybe that's what he wanted? He knew the police would trace what he bought and who he came with. He intentionally left a multitude of traces, none leading to the crime victims.

It's entirely possible that he rented two vans, using one to roam the city aimlessly and the other to transport the bodies, disposing of them in the ocean - a place teeming with sharks. The police are fixated on one van and the farm with the ponds. It would be the perfect place to hide the bodies if he didn't shoot his victims but quietly poisoned them. I hope I'm wrong. It's so unfortunate for the guys - so young, beautiful, and happy... IMHO.
 
Since a female acquaintance was with the accused at the remote property that is now being searched, do you think BL set her up so she would be giving incorrect information to the police? And why did he bring her along on his errands to the remote property and to the store(s)?
My understanding, unless
I interpreted incorrectly from an article, is that female aquaintance purchased the items from the hardware store.

The photo of them at Pink went up on the 18th. I think there's an error in that previous date. I actually think that's what has incensed BLC to potentially delete his socials and make this awful chain of events.

I've tried to find the protocols for service weapons but I can't find anything. I even went thru a bunch of my criminology texts but couldn't find anything. I, perhaps naively, thought they would be more transparent about the rules for services weapons.

This is the only thing I can find but I don't think it applies to this case.

 
“The NSW police force has been advised that the board of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has decided to withdraw the invitation to NSW police to participate in this year’s event,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

“While disappointed with this outcome, NSW police will continue to work closely with the LGBTIQA+ community and remain committed to working with organisers to provide a safe environment for all those participating in and supporting this Saturday’s parade.”
 
New information. After the press conference leaving the impression that there was no action taken about the 000 call, this says there was.

 
In my opinion BLC is a fame hunter.

His background proves his need for fame, even if purely by association.

Him joining the police later in his work life suggests to me a possible interest in True Crime and his knowledge of its current popularity. When his “fame” was not realised, I believe he went for “notoriety “.

This crime has been thought through like a Netflix movie, to make it seem clever with twists and turns. His silence is him dragging out the case to make it remain in the headlines longer.

If the police tell him that Netflix are interested in doing a documentary, but they need him to film a closing sequence of “the super criminal” leading the police to the bodies and they are willing to pay $$$ his massive ego and need for all eyes to be on him, will make him do it.
He couldn’t be Pink famous, so has decided to be Dahmer.
