Plus Mr Cooper phoned Greg Walsh direct instead of going to the police! Ridiculous waste of courts time. IMO
At this stage, it seems to me that Dawson has to front up with a large contingent of bishops and cardinals, not that they are standards of truth telling, but merely for the look of it. All waving candles and wafers and wine and what not.... These sleazy underground dregs are an affront to the court.The defence have sent out a tail-ender to open the batting. The judge won't be amused if the remainder of their witnesses are of this quality.
Assuming Cooper is the only witness the defence are calling, this thing could be completed very shortly. Each side to sum up and then the judge to head off into hibernation.
4.09am Bus schedule at Mona ValeI was looking at timing of things from 9pm 8 January with the phone call from Helena Simms the night before Lyn was noticed to be missing. These are based on statements from the Australian Wordpress documents and newspaper articles.
Joanne has been away from 2 January and Paul and Marilyn and kids from 4th January
Sometime before 7am Lyn had made lunches for the kids and done a load of washing.
Col the manager leaves the baths7am Chris dropped Lyn off at Mona Vale bus stop. (kids must be at home still sleeping).
Comes home and gets the kids breakfast.
Chris brings the kids with him to work. What I really want to know is who was looking after the kids. What if a rescue was needed. Had the intention been that Lyn be there and look after the kids. It is not detailed as to when Phil Day got there but was he there to look after the kids in case Chris was needed to rescue someone. Is the lifesaving job more a supervisory role that nothing really happens. I just don't think the Northbridge baths would be an appropriate place to take 2 kids to especially if they weren't supervised.
12noon or after Lyn expected at Northbridge Baths.
2 - 3 pm Phil Day arrives at the baths2pm Helena Simms arrives at pool
Witness with Diary3pm STD phone call from unknown person.
Phil Day is also there. Best man at Chris and Lyn's wedding.
Phil drops Helena and the kids home to Helena Simms place in Cloverly
Making a couple of additions to previous time table of the days Lyn went missing from the latest 2 podcasts.10 January Chris is at South West Rocks which is about a 5 hour drive from Sydney now. This may have been longer at the time depending on traffic as Pacific Highway is now 2 lanes all the way to South West Rocks but at least some of it would have been 1 lane at the time.
I'd be thinking, this guy wasn't to worried about his wife up & taking off leaving the kids with him ..........and he had an immediate replacement on hand......One has to wonder at this stage what the judge is thinking?
Also, hypothetically, if it was a jury sitting in judgement, what they might be thinking at this stage?
Naturally we haven't been able to hear all of what has gone on in the courtroom but I have a feeling if I was a juror I would be thinking, this guy is guilty. Whether 12 random jurors would have felt that way we will never know.I'd be thinking, this guy wasn't to worried about his wife up & taking off leaving the kids with him ..........and he had an immediate replacement on hand......
