    According to the article I dont think it will be inadmissable in court. It does make one wonder what else the defense is hiding from LE. Like possibly the rest of Zahras body. I just dont think this is right and was never aware it was an allowed tactic.

    Leaves me with concerns about contamination of evidence. My understanding is evidence is fully documented, photographed in situ, prior to any handling, then it is collected within the bounds of good forensic practice to avoid contamination, then given to forensics, etc. At lease we are aware that this item was discussed (presumably in depth) with the LE as part of the negotiation process, and then handed over, so we can assume that the LE was informed fully of it's history. We can only hope that the private investigator took appropriate steps in procuring this evidence, so the LE may have photographs etc as I outline above.

    I just can't help but think of the Jon Benet case where the aunt came into the house (wearing a police jacket) and took various items from around the house for the family, and not all these were recorded! AND that in the JB case a considerable number of extra individuals were invited onto the premises (family friends, minister, etc) who impacted on the premises (which admittedly was a "kidnapping" scene rather than a "murder" scene at that time) – this incident reeks of that to me. The private detective would have left his own imprint on the location, and without a thorough forensic background this may have impacted on the complete value of the evidence (whatever it is). What of course is possible is that this evidence was found at another location, not a place previously considered and searched.

    Hello, I don't post here often, but I've followed the Zahra case since it came out, and I have a question....

    When are the results of the recent discovery of skull (?) and bones in the area Zahra's remains were discovered going to be revealed? http://www2.hickoryrecord.com/news/...where-suspected-zahra-skull-found-ar-2184245/

    I feel sure that they have discovered what was missing, and maybe the skull will shed some light on what happened to this baby girl.

    No Adam Baker was not charged. He went back to Australia. Zahra's remains were released to him. I think he knew what went on, but was no way to prove anything on him. jmo

    No Sirree, not him. Much too thick, and bombed out on Cannabis when whatever was going on was going on. Or so he says. Personally, I believe him, and he definitely is thick.

    He left her belongings so he wouldn't have cared about skulls on fence IMO

    Did anything ever come of this? I know its been almost a decade ago, but this nagging detail has remained. I can't bear to think someone(s) did this to her and weren't charged. Why?

    I know that the obvious answer is the amount of time that's passed, but why can't I use any links related to ZB? Everything is either 404'd or not available.
