    Did any of the girls say that their grandmother picked them up from school?
    I recall one saying that their mother picked them up and they had afternoon tea.

    Another theory....

    GBC tells Allison about TMH at the conference the next day and Allison has a panic attack and passes out. GBC ensures she never regains consciousness by blocking her mouth and nose. But she does for a moment and scratches for her life to no avail......

    According to TMH statement #4, the romantic rendezvous was Mill Rd, Pullenvale - which is about the same distance west from Brookfield, but ~3km (~2 miles) to the north, on the opposite side of the state forest from Kholo Bridge (approx 3km away).

    However there's a road "Centre Road" that takes you pretty directly through the state forest from Mill Rd to Kholo Br.

    So it is possible he drove out that way to Mill Rd initially, looking for potential spots, headed 3km along Centre Rd, then came out the other side of the forest onto Mt Crosby Rd and headed to the bridge (less than 1km away).

    I am glad you said this, as its been on my mind to say also... From the hair perspective.. I am not one to worry about it after I've been to the hairdresser. In fact I much prefer it after I wash it the next day. I don't actually like the way it sits after they blow dry it! I prefer to wash it myself after and style it how I want or let it sit how I want. Its the cut (and if I have foils) that is more important to me, not that its freshly blowdried. So I guess looking at that aspect I don't consider it as big a deal about having freshly done hair as what some others may do- in terms of it affecting her doing some things like walking. JMO

    I did ponder this scenario and came to the conclusion that with the evidence given over the last 11 days by 71 witnesses, (and all evidence prior) - and with the GBC answering specific questions today which contradict his statements and evidence ..

    I'd be more inclined to ask:
    What if Allison was set up by GBC?

    So today i found out that whatever it takes to be a WebSleuth, I don't have it. I was fine while the prosecution were presenting their evidence, but today ... dear heaven, all that self-serving codswallop. It made me so angry. It made me feel :sick: that he was being allowed to do it, being allowed to present his own totally self-serving version of the marriage as Blessed St Gerard, Paragon of Longsuffering Virtue married to Allison the Freaky Dependent Burden.

    I had to get out; I just couldn't take any more. It's not as if it's even relevant information; the man is on trial for murder, not his entire life history.

    The jury; oh man, do I feel sorry for them. It's just wasting their time making them listen to all this stuff, and if it were me on the jury I'd be trying to find out how to lodge a complaint about it.

    I'll still tag along and try to keep up with it, but let him drive me crazy with his warped fantasies - nup, not going to do that!

    Hey Doc, won't we see another toxicologist for the defence probably say otherwise?

    And talk about serotinin syndrome?

    I note Al's last script for zoloft was filled 13 March. 30 tabs in packet and would have been run out prior to her murder if she took them everyday. ( I say that because I sometimes forget a day here and there when life is higgilty piggility) Is it possible if she did run out she may have been experiencing withdrawal? Even with the sertraline stores in her body?

    Sometimes if I forget 2 days in a row my anxiolytic I get dizzy,nauseous,hard to see or hear properly or think clear,get emotionally unstable and have what I can only describe as the sensation of my brain slushing around. However this never occurred to me on 250 (or 225 was a long time ago) mg of sertraline.

    Also I note that GBC said Al only had $20 in her account. Could she have been unable to pay for her next pack of meds?

    Guess the long and short of it: Possible she was withdrawing at the time?

    Yeah I gave up on reading it, would rather stick pins in my eyes than read his tripe.

    He was a salesman. In court he was attempting to sell himself to the jury.

    He's a compulsive liar who had to keep up the fa├žade of mr nice guy

    But mr nice guy isn't his true colours at all. Mr nice guys don't go traipsing around the countryside chasing skirt, covering up their tracks, all behind their wives back.

    In my opinion, money & sex was all he was interested in....his wife rebelled & got in the way of all that.

    A person gets depressed. It happens.
    Their spouse finds it hard to deal with. It happens.
    They run a business and it struggles. It happens.
    They must downsize. It happens.
    A person in the marriage has affairs. It happens.
    A person in the marriage is found under a bridge, dead from unknown cause. Rarely happens.
    The other person in the marriage concurrently sustains fingernail gouges down the side of their face. Rarely happens.
    The Crown rests its case IMO.

    As to how it was done without scene placement and other powerful evidence? Luck and assistance.
    May Justice be done.

    When they were trysting the night away....

    ..... from that same statement #4...

    [22. Gerard told me that he did not love Allison and they had not slept together for many years. Gerard told me that he slept most nights on the couch in the living room.

    24. I have been to Gerard's house on Brookfield Road, Brookfield on two occasions. ...........
    I did not see any bedding, sheets or blankets to indicate to me that he did sleep on the couch. This, however, did not appear to be unusual. Gerard would not have wanted the girls to know.

    Well, I have finally caught up! My gut reaction as I read through all the tweets was disbelief and a sense of embarrassment about everything that was said, that from an observers perspective seemed irrelevant to this murder trial. In many ways I wasn't shocked that GBC took the stand. He seems to enjoy speaking publicly and has every right to defend himself. I am no expert on the law and court cases though I have sat through a court case before and supported people going through court cases. But, overall this experience of mine is limited. My suspicion is that the defendant wanted to speak and that his legal team would have tried to dissuade him strongly, but in the end he is their client and it is his case and so they went with his wishes. This is just my suspicion but I could be way off the mark.

    I have great compassion for all the people involved in this case. It must be a harrowing time for both families and all the genuinely innocent people. I am hoping and praying for true justice in this court case. No one wants an innocent man convicted of a murder.......yet no one wants a guilty man to get away with murder. May the truth be so obvious that the jury make the right call.

    I was thinking I must be the only one who needs to do their hair again the morning after a visit to the hairdresser. :)

    I am starting to wonder if GBC didn't have a helper waiting in the garage.

    Longtime lurker from the start, but never felt I had anything to add as everyone else always seemed a step ahead of me! Amazing work by the way..admire you all for keeping up the fight to see Justice for Allison. As a Brisbane born and bred female of almost the same age as Allisonthis case has captured my heart like no other. I desperately want to see Justice for this lovely lady. I think my females can identify with her struggles. I am seriously concerned that GBC will walk.. Everything in my gut tells me different and has done from the very first news report I saw flash on the screen that morning long ago.

    Something that had propelled me to write here...
    Now that GBC (and his defense) are adamant in pushing the depression angle (which personally I feel had been completely overstated and overdone to the point of ridiculousness).. Whatever will he do if he is found not guilty and goes to pick up his precious life insurance money.. They won't pay if it was suicide will they? .. Wonder if Gerred has thought this through?

    Thanks all for two years worth of reading and sharing in seeking answers. I'm sorry I didn't contribute more to discussion but have valued each and everyone of your contributions.

    Welcome :)

    Most life insurance policies exclude payout for suicide only for the first 12 or 13 months - this is simply so people don't decide to commit suicide and then take out a policy.

    So if it was determined to be suicide then yes I believe payout would be made.

    Exactly ! If she had jumped or been dropped she would of been visable from the road as you approach the bridge from the Karana Downs side, as she would of landed to the left of the bridge and not under it. You cannot park your car on the left had side of the bridge either side there is no landing. Not possible. You can only park on the right had side (Anstead side) and if you cross the road carrying the body I am sure you could of been seen. There is a track to the right leading to the creek and under the bridge. The jurors would have seen this. I
