    I know this is years down the track, but could remnants of blood, using advanced technology/luminol type stuff, indicate the presence of blood on the cardigan.
    If so, the number of stab wounds, may indicate the wearer of cardigan, could not survive the attack (too much blood lost).
    Also don't K9 dogs alert to areas of deceased persons, years later: therefore the cardigan, and that area.
    I guess all this has been examined, and I'll just continue thinking.

    I suspect we are not the only ones to think about this. With so many cold cases around there has been a lot of re-testing of DNA evidence. From memory of reading articles, it was mitochondrial DNA which means it is DNA inherited from a mother. The Wanted TV program indicates it is not Lyn's DNA and a minute amount.

    I’m looking forward to the results of the re-testing of the cardigan DNA. Whether the cardi was time stamped around the time of Lyn’s disappearance or even before is telling of her treatment.

    He also confirms it in a post from him personally on TTP or LFLD FB page. I can’t remember which one sorry so IMO

    I don't believe he ever stopped investigating. He implied that in the last podcast. He was just giving the DPP and the police time to investigate. His job and our job is to continue keeping it in the news.

    Sydney teacher has 13 sex offences dropped
    something in the air on the northern beaches....maybe this grub had heard of the previous allowed shannanigans up there and thought it still ok :mad:
    good to see that at least while its all under court he is on a ZERO employment as a teacher.

    where were these rules when the grubby dawsons were around???
    better late than never.

    it is yet another travesty for justice that paul dawson got to spend the rest of his career honourably and any potential charges coming wont affect his credibility or work options :mad::mad:

    but …. maybe spending his retirement in jail will still be pretty good o_O

    imo

    If you look enough you can find further details.

    Not at any of the schools Chris and Paul went to.

    New DNA test to help crime busters

    Flinders University has developed the advanced test which can reveal which person was the last to touch a particular item.

    It can help rule out DNA deposits left by innocent people in what is commonly called secondary transfer.

    Interesting tool. It is probably for cases where police are on the scene immediately and not for a lot of cold cases that we look at a lot on this site due to the degrading of DNA.

    "The 53-year-old claimed she was raped by two teachers at Beacon Hill High School (pictured) in 1979 and 1980"

    This dated prior to Chris teaching at Beacon Hill High School. I suspect he was there in 1982. Assuming the allegations are true, from the 53 year old (1979 and 1980) and Kate Mcauley (1987) last week the culture at Beacon Hill was equally as bad as Cromer High.

    Not a good school to send Chris to IMO, but maybe they were safe at that point in time because of his infatuation with Joanne.

    Nicholas Cowdery resigns as White Ribbon chair after Keli Lane comments

    While this may appear to be off topic, Cowdery was the DPP at the time of Lynn's original sparse and dismissive 'investigation'... I reckon attitude had a lot to do with that, the prevailing attitude at the time, ( and who can claim it's any better now? ) that women just walk out and leave their poor husbands with everything... sure.. kids, bank account , $property, job etc... ….

    anyways.....! that's how I see it!

    Yes and he failed to prosecute CD twice. And got Keli Lane the promiscuous irresponsible mother locked up, again no body no evidence except for all her lies. CD must have been a good man for Cowdery, he wouldn't lie!

    I hope other domestic cases prosecuted or otherwise by Cowdery, will get looked at by the new DPP.
