    Twitter updates from court this morning:

    #tiasharp Potential jurors told witnesses include family, shopkeeper, pathologist, police and prison officers, experts such as scientists.

    @skymartinbrunt:

    #tiasharp Pros says jury must decide if Tia was murdered or died by accident at grandmother's home in August

    #tiasharp Pros says jurors will have to see and hear distressing evidence.

    #tiasharp Tia died on 2/3 August but her body wasnt found until 10 August, says Pros

    #tiasharp Pros says jury will have a reaction to some evidence. You wouldn't be human if you didn't, he said.

    #tiasharp Pros says only Toa and Hazell her "stepgrandfather" were in the house when she died. Gran Christine was at work .

    #tiasharp Pros say it may be suggested that Tia died after falling downstairs

    #tiasharp Pros says cops found memory stick with photos on it. It was found tucked away on top of door frame by Hazell.

    #tiasharp Pros says Hazell his Tia's body in the loft after he killed her. Not what you do after an accident, is it?

    #tiasharp Tia's Mum leaves court in tears. Pros says police found sex toy with Tia's blood on it.


    @SkyFixerJim:

    Tia's mother leaves the court in tears after Edis speculates how hard it might have been to get her body into the attic.

    Edis says the prosecution will claim that Hazell had a sexual interest in Tia. A sex toy was found with her blood on it.

    Hazell's top was found to have Tia's blood on the front, says Edis. Tia's mum now back in court but still distressed.


    @skymartinbrunt:

    #tiasharp Pros says even thought Tia was small it can't have been easy to get her body into the loft.


    @SkyFixerJim:

    Edis: two camera memory cards were found. Among pornographic images are some of Tia sleeping and one of young naked girl lying on her bed.

    The jury are being shown a video, which the pros claims is Tia being secretly filmed. Video paused. Tia's mother leaves. "I hope you rot."

    The pros says the video comes from Hazells memory card. It's a blurry image and seems to show Tia putting some cream on her legs.

    He took photos of her sleeping?? Creep. The sex toy with Tia's blood on it can't be innocently explained away unless Hazell is going to try and convince the jury it was hers and that he knew nothing about it. I imagine he'll do what so many other murderers do (when there's no definitive cause of death) and that's to lie, lie, and lie some more. Never mind what her family must have gone through wondering how a healthy 12-year-old just suddenly 'died' one night.

    Why can these POS, when they are caught and presented with the evidence, not just do one decent thing in their lives and tell the truth, to spare the family hearing all the vile facts gone over in detail.

    There is live reporting here in the Croydon Guardian, every five minutes.

    It might be easier to link to that than c&ping the abbreviated tweets, don't you think?

    You can't really rely on every news outlet that runs pages with live updates because they're often removed after a year or two (sometimes even after just a few months). At least if we post Tweets and copies of any updates in the threads here, it ensures members who browse the forum in the future– or who want something to refer to quickly– won't have missed anything important.

    @SkyFixerJim:

    Edis QC tells the jury that Hazell used to film or photograph Tia whenever she stayed over at her grandmother's house.

    Jury shown a brief video clip of Tia apparently asleep. She's covered with a duvet and seems to be wearing a vest. One of 3 similar clips.

    Edis claims these images were taken in July last year, a few weeks before she died. #tiasharp

    Jury now being shown still images. Too small for us to see. Edis suggests that one of them MAY show a naked dead girl on Tia's bed.

    If it does show that, says Edis, then its importance is obvious. #tiasharp

    There are similarities in the photograph, says Edis, to features in the room where Tia slept in her grandmother's house.

    @SkyFixerJim:

    The jury are briefly shown a picture of a naked girl "in a particular position." Gasps of horror from the whole court.

    The jury are given a break.

    Edis: A pathologist who has examined the picture says there are signs it was taken after death, and the body put into a pose.


    @skymartinbrunt:

    #tiasharp Pros says Tia died after 00.42 when her phone was last used.

    #tiasharp Jury shown photo which Pros says is Tia's naked body posed after her death


    @SkyFixerJim:

    Edis: bedding was recovered from the house. There was extensive blood staining to one side of the duvet. Almost certainly Tia's blood.

    Semen matching Hazell's was also found on the bedding and on Tia's night clothes, says Edis.


    @skymartinbrunt:

    #tiasharp Pros says forensics found blood 1 in billion match to Tia on bed clothes. And 1 in billion match of Hazell sperm.

    #tiasharp Pros says Tia's blood on belt Hazell wearing when arrested

    I do believe 'the done thing' is to provide a link to the sources though, isn't it? Might be useful to confirm where some of this information is coming from and then people can find it quickly :)

    I don't know how on earth Hazell's defence is going to try and claim Tia died in a tragic 'accident'. What sort of an accident would involve Hazell's semen on Tia's night clothes??

    That's why I put the username of every reporter before each of their Tweets. Nowadays the "@" sign before a name is the universal indicator of a Twitter user. This ain't my first rodeo. ;)

    @SkyFixerJim:

    The prosecution claim that this was no accident, says Edis. The defence will say she fell down the stairs. Because of the length of time...

    ...she was hidden in the loft, it's not possible to establish the exact cause of death.

    Edis: Officers didn't find the body in the loft in their first search, "because it had been meticulously wrapped and hidden".


    @skymartinbrunt:

    #tiasharp Pros says no ascertain able cause of death, but suggests suffocation, according to pathologist.

    #tiasharp Pros says Hazell told police Tia had gone out to meet a male friend at Croydon shopping centre.


    @SkyFixerJim:

    Edis: The house was besieged by media after she went "missing". This must have been inconvenient for Hazell - he couldn't move the body.

    Jury now being played a news interview with Hazell, "playing the part" of concerned grandparent. "I love her, she's like my own daughter."

    Edis: In the end a police officer noticed the smell in the house. Hazell must have been aware of it too. He knew the end was coming.

    Once arrested, Hazell said "no comment" in interviews. Later though he told prison officers that his role in her death had not been sexual.

    "I'm not a nonce" he told them. He claimed she had fallen down the stairs and broken her neck while they were playing. #tiasharp

    The prosecution opening has concluded. We're now hearing a written statement of background material. #tiasharp

    Stuart Hazell trial ends for the day. Jury back again at 1015 tomorrow. #tiasharp

    RE: posting tweets. I think Neurotripsy does a good job updating lots of threads with trial tweets. I personally prefer to read the tweets in a post than go to a link.

    As for the trial - my jaw dropped at the sex toy and the dead body put in a 'position' on the bed. Ugh! Sick sick man.

    ~snipped~

    If she'd truly fallen down the stairs and broken her neck in a genuine accident - then why not call an ambulance? Maybe he pushed her down the stairs after he'd sexually assaulted her so he couldn't call an ambulance because there'd have been evidence of a sexual assault. Ian Huntley also denied there'd been any sexual motive in Holly and Jessica's murders, also Mark Bridger claimed that April Jones 'died' when he accidentally ran her over in his car. Common theme is that all the accused had a penchant for young girls and an exact cause of death was never established because either the bodies had decomposed too much, or (in April's case) there was no body to be found. How fortunate for the murderers.

    I am so pleased that he left some evidence. I would have been beside myself if he had gotten away with this.
    None of us had any idea last year that this would come up, how awful, poor Tia.

    Thank you!
