- Reaction score
The defence won't need to provide evidence that Lyn actually did run away, though that would be helpful.I would think there needs to be evidence that she actually did run away, not just that her circumstances were such that a normal person might be expected to run away. We've already seen that L.D. put up with extraordinary things, including finding the babysitter in bed with her husband, and rather than react by distancing herself, she excused them away. And besides, why run away into total oblivion, when she had two little daughters to love?
Remembering, Chris doesn't need to prove his innocence....he's already afforded that.
Therefore, it will be up to the Crown to prove that Lyn didn't run away. Certainly her two daughters will be a large part of the Crown's argument to that.
You make some great points there @musicaljoke especially the extraordinary things that Lyn put up with but still showing forgiveness!
