    Really? Interesting to hear your point of view. I think the prosecution, in particular the last couple of days have been gold. I think they have let GBC basically tie himself up, contradict himself, show himself for who he is very well AND he himself has in doing so, countered some of his earlier claims. Now I know that doesn't exactly 'prove' GBC murdered his wife. But a picture is being painted- of lies and deceit..over many years. A pattern of behaviour- coupled with the experts tesimony regarding the Autopsy, Allisons emotional health at the time, the scratches on GBC's face, the leaves in her hair. It is all circumstantial.. but put all together circumstancial evidence can become very compelling evidence. Many cases do in fact rely on circumstancial evidence- this is certainly not the first. Many have also been convicted on it also. I have yet to see a plausable explanation from the defence as to what may have happened to Allison otherwise.

    In regards to the no sex with Allison claim, I believe the fact they had 2 kids in that time does kind of counter the claim. The pill doesn't really offer proof either- as it can be taken for things other than contraception.

    Good question! It's more the social media stuff that would be an issue IMO. Mainstream media are usually pretty aware of what they can legally publish. Plus, it's easy enough to avoid watching the news or reading the papers for a few days. But it's not so easy to avoid social media when it has become such a huge part of our daily lives - and most social media users are unaware of what might be considered prejudicial. IMO.

    Now having heard from GBC, NBC and OW.
    The timing from about 5.00pm on the 19th April is not much clearer.
    * GBC recollects that the girls had a swim at his parents. NBC agreed.
    * Calls received from Toni
    *A relatively short dinner/BBQ had while Allison at the hairdresser.
    *GBC and the girls left Kenmore residence at 7.00 to 7.30 pm OR 6.00 to 6.30 pm depending who you want to believe NBC or GBC.
    *Allison opened the door when GBC and the girls arrived dressed in her checked pj's and hiking socks.
    * GBC handed over his phone as per Allison's conditions
    * They did not bother with baths and that various stuff as the girls had been swimming.
    * Allison and GBC put the girls to bed together but he goes in last because the girls settle better that way.
    * GBC changed into his boxers, t-shirt and joggers.
    * Daughter came out for a glass of water and Allison is on the lounge. GBC coming up from garage, he is going to do the ironing.
    * GBC given back phone to check incoming e-mails. must have taken this opportunity to send group texts. (staff morale)
    * He gives the phone back as this is the condition.
    * Allison phoned OW at 8.28pm she spoke softly because the girls were not settled yet. OW herself had just arrived home from dinner.
    * Text received from Kerri Ann - no reply by Allison.
    * GBC and Allison washed the lunch boxes together.
    * Chatted about their day and shared the cross country photo's. I guess he had finished the ironing.
    * Allison's phone pings to Kenmore Tower at 8.57pm
    * GBC feeling unwell headed of to bed at about 10pm
    * Allison watching the footy show.
    * Phone on charge at 1.48am 20 April.

    I am thinking that Allison did open the door in her PJs and hiking socks.
    Tucked the girls into bed.
    Made the lunches given she had an early start.
    Went to bed.
    GBC on the other hand was sitting and waiting for the moment.

    What I find fascinating in this whole case is never once have I heard GBC or his family come out and state that they wanted to know who had done this to Allison. Doesn't it seem strange that if the woman you supposedly loved was murdered in this way that you would move heaven and earth to find out who did it. Yet I can't recall ever hearing anyone ask that question. And if they truly believed that she had suicided, why they didn't immediately tell the police that.

    And why wouldn't you call her friends first off before ringing the police?

    Or call her parents to see if they had heard from her?

    All the unanswered questions say a lot more to me than the answered ones.

    Except GBC stated that he was making the lunches in the morning and then handed that task over to NBC. As someone pointed out, the lunch making seemed like a mammoth task for these two.

    Listening to the prosecution today suggesting he smothered her, I am beginning to wonder along similar lines. Did she in fact go to bed and he has tried to smother her? She woke and put up a struggle, scratching him and causing the other injuries. He then dragged her outside to the car, collecting the leaves in her hair as he did so, and maybe causing her jumper to pull up around her head as it was when Allisons body was discovered.

    All the evidence points that way. And don't forget that GBC's school friend lenders were much more comfortable with the investment when she rejoined the business. Who's to say how things might have gone in a divorce and property settlement scenario? Possibly not in GBC's favour?

    I have been saying that for a while now.....my original thought when she was found was either strangled or smothered given no noise......

    Lordy I'm glad they rested when they did... I forgot a 2pm hospital appointment. I made it 10 mins late, but I'm still sitting here waiting to be seen. Lucky I could catch up. That news alert nearly gave me a heart attack so I'm glad I'm in the right place.

    Do we have murder degrees in qld?

    What? Like the DNA of his youngest two children!

    Guilty! even before we hear the prosecution summary. I was biased I admit but not a single doubt raised for one single piece of circumstance.

    kind of odd that Gerard would say he never thought about the implications should ' he and Alison determine to divorce '. ( implying that it would be a joint decision, like as if no one would think of divorcing Gerard without his say-so) , yet one of his main claims to dear old Toni was that he couldn't afford to get divorced, implying he'd thought a lot about the implications financially of that occurring..


    gerard is so bent, he has to put his pants on with a corkscrew..

    He stood to lose a lot in divorce, he couldn't risk it.

    guilty, . beyond doubt.. not a shadow of a doubt.. and guilty of interfering with her corpse, by sheer application of logic. . guilty of one, guilty of the other.. .. no question.

    not one mitigating factor..
