    No I couldn't see a reason for it either. I wouldn't read anything into a backup of her phone being on the computer. My iphone is set to back up automatically whenever I plug it into the computer - hers may have been too.

    It was an accident dad, please help me? jmho


    I don't even know that I agree with my own statement but imo, that is how it has gone with many a child who asks their parent/s for help after committing an offence.

    No parent wants their child to go to prison but luckily it's not up to a parent, it's decided by the laws of the land, judge and jury.

    All a parent can do is support and hopefully, NOT lie or cover up. An ideal parent would want a fair and just outcome. jmho

    I was walking my dog past the pony club recently when I heard a thud, sounded exactly like a sack of potatoes would. It was a teenage girl thrown off a horse about 300 k's away. Made me stop & look. This sound travel thing is weird.

    Ha ha! You will need more than a whiteboard.
    You would need to understand a few things, like deflecting answers to questions.
    You would need to understand a few things about how to deal with a liar, or a manipulator.
    You would need to understand a few things about Narcissism. Including malignant narcissism.
    you would need to understand a few things about Sociopathy.

    I am not a police person, but I do wonder if QPS persons are educated as to such things.
    Something tells me that Kelli Thompson and others (Ash comes to mind) had some sort of gut instinct that all was not as it seemed. Something not right.
    Their "gut instinct" told them things. (Thankfully)

    What I am suggesting is this; Are QPS or others at the coal front experienced or qualified in diagnosing NPD? Or NPD at this level? Then knowing how to behave in such circumstances?

    - In London, he worked as a Financial Systems Consultant with Blockbuster International for six months while Allison worked with Dale Karnegie Training.

    The asking for help afterwards I could just about imagine.

    I can't imagine a conversation beforehand planning the whole thing.

    Maybe I am a bit naive :)

    There are many variables to sound travel I believe - wind speed and direction, background noise, topography of land, high or low pitched noise etc etc.

    Has any witness from around the Brookfield area or for that matter anywhere at all come forward to say they ever saw Alison walking in the morning? I walk in that general area most mornings and you become familiar with the different faces you see.

    There are people who have said they NEVER saw Allison out walking. Morning or evening. That person, (on this site,) said, she was familiar with faces. Recognised faces.
    Never saw OW stopping and asking people if they had seen Allison either.
    This same lovely person was actually out and about at the time in question and at the place in question.
    No Alison and no OW in car stopping people and talking to them supposedly enquiring re Allison.

    Not sure if that what you mean by any witness?

    2 things I noticed besides his atrocious acting, :rolleyes:, GBC cut the reporter off abruptly when she asked if Allison was upset and quickly added, he's tried to help the police all he can. Tried means he's not helping them completely, iow, holding back information. Oh, how the guilty mind betrays itself, can't be helped. jmho

    So Allison would have been prepared and could have avoid an encounter, as TMcH also?

    Back at the bail hearing it was mentioned that someone had reported seeing a woman matching Allison's description walking down Boscombe Road. That was later ruled out when a woman came forward at the committal hearing to say it was her. This is the only mention there's ever been of anyone sighting a woman out walking that morning.

    From committal hearing...

    March 19, 2013

    A woman has come forward to say she believes she was the person spotted walking along Boscombe Rd, Brookfield, on the morning Allison Baden-Clay was reported missing.

    Christine Skrzeczynski, a Brookfield resident, said she read in The Courier-Mail during Gerard Baden-Clay's bail hearing that a witness had seen a woman walking down Boscombe Rd matching Allison's description.

    ''I came forward because at the time of the bail hearing, just before Christmas, I read in The Courier-Mail that a witness had seen a lone woman walking on Boscombe Rd,'' she said.

    ''I thought there was a very strong likelihood that that would be me."

    Ms Skrzeczynski said she always walks that route in the mornings that she works.

    ''I do that without fail, whatever the weather, and I don't see other people walking at that time in that location.''

    Ms Skrzeczynski, a woman of similar age to Allison with blonde hair, provided evidence to the court that she had worked that day.

    She also provided the court with photographs of outfits she would wear while walking.

    I mean we seem to have only GBC 's word that Alison actually DID go walking on a regular basis, and I was wondering if anyone else had actually seen her do it!

    I sense lots of anxiety and uncertainty in this forum over the past few days.I think that is expected given everyones anticipation of the outcome of this trial. I believe that the amount of evidence given already is enough to achieve a verdict. The final response by the prosecution will rid any doubt. IMO

    On Thursday, it took GBC 1 hour 17 minutes to tell us about 1995 to the early 2000s. If he wants to spin it out longer he’ll maybe go back to his childhood, youth and adulthood before he met Allison. Then he might get around to telling us about the last ten years or so before April 2012 and – wait for it! – his version of the last few days before Allison’s disappearance.

    Far canal!!! How much time is a defendant allowed to give us his back story before the cross-examination begins? He is entitled to his day in court - but does our Brisbane Scheherazade expect to have 1001 nights as well?

    I think Ladybird is referring to me. I worked down off Gold Creek Road and had to walk to work(as I didn't have a car and the bus times didn't suit). I never saw Allison walking and I never saw OW that morning in that area. Nor did the 70-80 plus people who drove that way to work say anything seemed amiss that morning.

    Thanks for saying I'm lovely too Ladybird.
