    Yes, his van was seen when he came to repair the washing machine. Were searches still taking place at that time?

    I think so, but it's awfully hard to read, and I thought it possible there was a miscommunication of the name to the people taking notes.

    I doubt it, I don't think they would need to prove his history as he has already been convicted.

    It was aroubd the same time as WTs abduction. I thought maybe they might be asked about where he took them, if he had any toys in his van..things like that? Long shot I know...

    I don't think this Rob is the man, though. Wrong age. It seems he joined NSWFB in 1975, but sex offender Robert's older brother Tim is 45.

    I just went back and re-read the case law. This is the sentence that makes me think that the 3 young men - all in their early 20s - were chosen as vulnerable victims due to their cognitive (attention span/memory/reasoning) impairments, and not due to a childlike mentality.
    I don't think they could have been very childlike - with one of them being an SES member for 6 years, and another one of them considering joining the SES. I think they likely just presented as being 'slow'.

    "Dr Fox agreed in cross-examination that a young adult with the psychological functioning of a 7 to 9 year old child would not necessarily present as a child because as the person ages chronologically adaptive social skills are learnt or acquired."

    In the paperwork, they don't name the victims' names, so isn't it possible they might want a closed court if those people were to testify?

    I don't think this person is connected. In the article it Say's Rob had 2 son's Scott and Tim...no Robert mentioned as a son....Just a coincidence I think they share the same surname IMO

    All the tweet-work is SO appreciated by me. Some of us cannot follow along at the time, and later the actual tweets get buried under many other tweets, so having them posted here is wonderful!

    Many, many thanks. :) :) :)

    Yes the showground is about 1 km from FGM house in Benaroon.

    15m walk or 2 min drive :(

    Kendall pool is 1.9km away.

    Just reread your question, no it is not as close to the second search area last year if you mean Cedar Loggins lane / Barar creek Rd and would have been closer to the start of the search area last year. It is close to the FGM house though with some bush access in the direction behind FGM house to another street

    Yes, in the article it says (if the reporter got it right!) that Tim is the youngest.. so wouldn't be Robert's immediate family. I guess the Donohoe clan like the same names!
