http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-revealed.html 'It is believed etc'..... Believed by whom?...... so far, any stories about Tanja come from the now dead husband. Naturally, he is going to embellish a bit on the theme of 'she was agitated' to 'she got out of the car ' to ' she walked off near the grain silos' at Roseworthy'.. to.. '' she was going to NSW".....( probably when it was pointed out to him that she hadn't taken her passport) .... No one is obligated to take on a single statement the police report he made. Not even the police are obligated to, they of course, act upon it, hence the search at Roseworthy, the police horses on the road etc, but mainly for purposes of elimination of parts of his very short story. Police say they questioned him 'intensively ' during the morning... now.... I don't know what 'intensively' consists of amongst the South Australian Police on an investigation out there in the Never-never but the urgency would have made itself clear to Burdon from the get-go. But it seems they didn't get very far with him, , or haven't made public most of it, just bits here and there, because the sudden unexpected suicide ended any flow of info and must have put a bit of the wind up those poor Constables, it is reasonable to believe they didn't see that coming. But on the other hand , by the time they got to the property, before they met him in person, or searched the family car etc, either from something he said over the phone, or something the person reporting her disappearance said over the phone, the firm view had been formed among the police that this was a murder, not a missing person event. And this , according to police, they conveyed to Burdon. Which probably stopped all vague murmurs of her being agitated and wanting to go to NSW and all that. He knew it was game over, but he still held one ace card. It will take a while for the inescapable fact that he is a murderer to sink in around Mannahill. Denial of that is only the first step in a long process.
