    Allison's levels, as described in the toxicology report, were from the liver. They were 12 times the level of "normal antidepressant levels" which would be measured in circulating blood. Comparing apples and oranges. "Unreliable due to decomposition" is an understatement as any drug would concentrate greatly in the liver after peripheral blood is no longer circulating.

    And that is not even taking into account that death from overdose of Zoloft alone is as rare as rocking horse manure.

    I'm not verified here (yet?) as a medical practitioner so you can take or leave this information as my own opinion, but I believe Dr Watson said something similar.

    Ok Doc, I'll drop to defcon 3 for now :)

    With regards to the disposal of the body, i lean to the enlistment of another for a number of reasons, including the fact that if the children woke up and daddy and mummy weren't home that could blow holes in Gerards story, If another was watching over them while he disposed similar issue eg when asked by police, oh i woke up in the night and grandpa was there or aunty olivia was there........

    but if they woke up at 1am or so and daddy was there to say go back to sleep dear then..... no probs...... i feel it really does point to another person or persons disposing of the body.

    i have a feeling somethings been missed with the phones/internet possibly some gmail/hotmail communication or another app (like viber) or an IM platform that had been deleted after use.....

    MOO

    Hi Possumheart, I see your point. I do know the school enrolled children with 'issues' when other schools had had enough of them. Maybe GBC was a bit too 'special' for Prep.

    Thanks MadDoc :)

    I've looked it up, because I was CERTAIN we used to have it on August 1 (we had a lot of wattle trees in our yard when I was young), as it was the same day as "Horses Birthday".

    I just did a bit of Googling and found this:

    So, those who remember it as August 1 are not dreaming. Just trivia!

    Yep I bought it for $3 a couple of nights ago, but on Google Play Books. I was very happily surprised by that price, and am part way through it. Very interesting with lots of details I've not heard before!

    Do you know what .. that is a perfect school for GBC if he did have behavioural problems because he could be there for that reason, but his parents could tell everyone else he was in the gifted program.

    Also once he emerged he may have been expected to live up to the expectations the people around the family (who didn't know that he had issues) would have had for him considering his 'giftedness' .. don't we all think it's interesting that GBC only had a few years of work in Australia before he disappeared overseas (where he was in charge of what got reported back home) then after struggling for a bit to find his feet, went into business under the umbrella of protection from his parents, only to drive it into the ground once they retired?

    Then to kill his wife and end up in jail when it all began to collapse around his ears.

    I can see it, this makes sense to me JMO.

    I have always leaned toward the public phone at the Showgrounds being a handy option. Or if it was early, the call from A to O's phone might be the key.

    Just got it! Thank you. Girding of loins will be needed before embarking on that. We possums are sensitive little critters.

    They've misreported that. I was in the court when the judge clearly said "A person dressed in purple"....

    I was only there for six months and as I said it was free range. Most vivid memory was learning how to make sculptures in clay, for anyone who felt like it (you only had to do what you felt like doing). I devoured the exercise. It was demonstrated gently over and over again how not to leave any air bubbles in your clay, not to have solid clay sculptures or the whole lot would explode in the oven. I lovingly cut my clay with fishing line, observed what an air hole looked like, massaged it, cut it again - made my hollow sculptures of rats (I was running the libraries pet rat program and studying rats in literature), had raptures about my beautiful unfired rat sculptures (love you oddsocks), listened in awe to the fact that they would be smaller when they were fired. STOP. Firing day, you imagine the noise. Tell SOME kids that air bubbles will ruin it for everyone - :crying:

    I have ALWAYS, from the very beginning, thought that GBC would not risk leaving the girls alone, for the reasons you've stated here, Greg.

    We shall see..........work on, QPS, work on!

    I'd be willing to bet my bottom dollar that OBW suffered sibling abuse similar to what happened with Allison as a kid and may be covering for him more than we know, I have sympathy for her in a way .. the family is dysfunctional and you just don't pop up as a killer from nowhere in adulthood.

    Or an unhealthy exaggerated perception of his own specialness! :)
