    Perhaps they already did but couldn't include it in the prosecution for some reason or other?

    ... and Trooper, who gave us confidence that justice would be served when at time we feared the slimy worm would get away with it.

    I don't know either UT, maybe they did know and didn't use it for some reason. Here is the link for 60 minutes ad.

    Gerard Baden-Clay’s long-term mistress has spoken to 60 Minutes in an exclusive interview, revealing that she "loved him unconditionally" and wanted to marry him.

    In the emotional interview to air in full this Sunday, Toni McHugh told 60 Minutes Tara Brown about her affair with the accused wife-killer.

    "I loved him very much," she said.

    "He had told me that he would marry me."

    We don't know that she didn't come forward to police. Could have just been hearsay and wouldn't help convict him of murder if someone else did it.

    I have to say that I've really enjoyed getting to know all of you! I was assigned to this case early on because the other mods were tied up in the Trayvon Martin case. I didn't know what you guys were talking about for the longest time! :waitasec: Then we added Marlywings - our first international moderator. She's been such a joy and even has ****** spelling things differently, like "practise" and "colour". :floorlaugh:

    Some of you may remember that I love Australia because my nieces are half-Aussie and live in Sydney with their wonderful mum. To know more about the culture, the slang, and the weather - just to be in touch with people on the other side of the planet - is such a blessing.

    Allison, thank you for allowing all of us to make new friends in your name. Rest in peace, gracious lady. We'll see you in heaven someday. :rose:

    Listening to all the media reports, I can't help thinking "You have been reading WS again, haven't you?" Not much got by us. Well done troops!

    Yep, I guess thats my thought too, but hard to understand why.
    True squizzy, but if this person was called to testify, why would it be any different to any of the other witnesses that testified to what GBC may have said or done (like Toni MCH).. no matter, the result was as we'd all hoped with or without this evidence.

    yes, I agree. I was just venting as I find it incredulous that someone would come forward with something like that now and not take it to police. But as you say, we don't know they didn't, am just surprised nothing had been said about it previously. But my thought also, that maybe it actually wouldn't help the prosecution case in terms of finding him guilty of actually committing the murder, as it could have been found or suggested that someone else actually committed the crime- even though he instigated the plan..
