    Stephanie Scott murder: Court hears murderer’s twin Marcus Stanford sold engagement ring
    SARAH CRAWFORD, Court reporter, The Daily Telegraph
    August 23, 2016 1:06pm

    The mother of Stephanie Scott, Merrilyn, told the court she had given the crossover ring to her daughter following her graduation from university.
    She said after her daughter’s death the family had gone to the site where her body had been “burnt beyond recognition” to search for the rings.
    “It was confronting to see the ground charred and disturbed,” Stephanie’s mum said.
    She said they used metal detectors but did not recover the rings... :(

    "... Sgt Clark told the hearing that Vincent Stanford became a focus of their investigation because his alibi did not check out.
    Vincent Stanford provided a statement to police on April 8 that he went to a supermarket to buy groceries on Easter Sunday.
    But the supermarket was in fact closed on that day.
    Sgt Clark said police then went to Vincent’s home where he lived with his mother Anika and older brother Luke.
    Vincent was not at home but his mother gave officers permission to search Vincent’s bedroom and they found keys for Leeton High School.
    Sgt Clark said further inquiries revealed the set of keys were given to Ms Scott by another teacher so she could access the school.
    After that, Vincent returned home and told police he had been out “taking photographs”.
    “We found the last two photos taken on the camera were of a burnt deceased body,” Sgt Clark said.
    When he was asked what the photos were of Sgt Clark said Stanford told him, “that he had downloaded them from a horror movie onto his camera.”
    Sgt Clark said in a further search of Vincent Stanford’s bedroom they found Ms Scott’s red bra in a backpack and, in a search of the shed, officers found the boot liner of Ms Scott’s car.
    A further examination on Vincent’s car revealed blood on a laminated board in the back of the vehicle.
    When Vincent was initially arrested and interviewed he denied the crime or even knowing Ms Scott..."

    'Stanford had been planning to attack a 12-year-old student who lived close to the school and would regularly visit after hours but he came across Ms Scott instead.'

    I had thought that the brother and the mother were away that Easter... but apparently not, at least, the mother was home Easter Sunday, when the police came to search Vincent's room.....

    From memory it was an assumption that VS had the house to himself over Easter. It was never reported in MSM or by police that the mother and brother had gone away.

    Again, congratulations on the Police for expedient follow-up once VS's alibi did not check out. Well done.
    It appears that the Police were at his house when he returned from taking the photographs! This must have been alarming.:(

    I think that idea formed when the neighbor said that Vincent appeared to be home alone that weekend, and did a whole lot of laundry on the Monday.. ( or Sunday).. and also, it had a bit of floating idea that Vincent had taken Stephanie back to his place.. ( this was when the business of her murder taking place in the School Staffroom was a big black hole of horror, to be steered away from , even though it appears that was true.... ) ...

    SO it seems ole Vincent sat down with Mum and had dinner , not mentioning a word about his Easter adventures, and Mum apparently didn't hear him going back and forth to Cocoparra park to re arrange Stephanies body to his requirements.. odd, I reckon .

    Facts tendered by the Crown reveal Vincent Stanford went to the school on April 5 last year and was surprised to find Ms Scott at work.

    Ms Scott was preparing lessons for her students ahead of her wedding and honeymoon.

    Court documents state when he saw Ms Scott he went home to collect his ‘rape kit’ and returned to wait for her.

    “As she walked along the corridor after exiting the administration building Stephanie encountered Vincent Stanford who had been waiting for her, she said to him, ‘I’m going home now, have a Happy Easter’.”

    Ms Scott went to unlock a steel gate and Vincent Stanford grabbed her from behind, around the waist, covered her mouth and began dragging her into a storeroom.

    “Stephanie Scott was struggling and trying to yell as Vincent Stanford was dragging her towards the store room,” the facts read.

    Vincent Stanford pulled her into the storeroom, locked the door and raped her.

    Afterwards, Vincent Stanford punched Ms Scott several times in the face and stabbed her in the neck — killing her.

    He then drove her red Mazda car to a secluded part of the school before removing her body from the storeroom and placing it in the vehicle.

    He then went back to the storeroom to clean the scene of the crime.

    Vincent Stanford drove her car to his home that he shared with his mother Anneke Noort and brother Luke, leaving the vehicle behind the shed.

    In the early hours of the morning, he drove Ms Scott’s car to Cocoparra National Park, 70km from Leeton.

    “(He) removed Stephanie’s naked body from the boot of her car and placed her on the ground. He then placed tree branches of differing sizes over her lower torso before pouring petrol onto the branches and setting her alight.”

    ...

    On April 11, a day after police found Stephanie’s body, he confessed to his horrific crime in a recorded interview with police.

    He told police that he had “struck her in the carotid artery” with an AM-Tech USA knife that had a 35cm to 40cm blade.

    When police asked him why he did so Vincent Stanford replied, “to make sure she was dead”.

    I thank for your post. One thing though... I think he had her in his sight. Teacher going away for awhile at school doing pre planning before her trip. He knew and he did it. Freaken why?

    'We can never make sense of losing our beautiful girl': Stephanie Scott's mother Merrilyn Scott tells court
    by Emma Partridge, August 23 2016 - 4:53PM

    "Even as we searched, Stephanie's fate was known by a second person. Both were part of something so monstrous, so cruel and heartless, devoid of any of the qualities that make us moral human beings. Opportunities to assist the police were squandered, and now we must all suffer the consequences," Mrs Scott told the court, as she was supported by her husband Robert...

    What about the engagement ring that the brother sold to a pawn shop in Adelaide. I think the shop has been named, should a photo of the ring be circulated to help find it for Stephanie's family?[​IMG]
