    I'm just guessing, but probably AB and Emily are fighting over who gets custody of her remains.

    this ''feels'' like another shoe is going to drop soon -- I'll bet that repatriation to Australia is in the making and that Z's mom is coming to attend. That's a six day lead time and I imagine there are lots of details that are being negotiated right now. Given that the mom has had visitation rights etc that were not respected, I would hope she's got an Australian Court Order in her hand as we speak today and that the Consulate here is assisting.

    That's what it implies in the article.

    Right now it hasn&#8217;t been decided where Zahra will be buried.

    I am curious as to who arranged it, I imagine it is to give closure to Zahra for Hickory (although I thought that's what the vigil was for). I would certainly hope that ED will be getting Zahra's remains to have a memorial in Australia, and decide for herself whether to cremate or bury her. I hate to think that EB & AB would have any say at all considering they are responsible IMO. I don't think KB would have a say as she is not next of kin unless AB was somehow allowed to arrange things and he took her advice.

    They may still be working out legalities and final arrangements.

    Oh no I didn't mean that to sound that way. I'm just confused is all.

    I seriously doubt the remains have been released. I think they are just announcing the memorial. I feel quite sure there will be a battle over them, and that is why it has not been decided. But as far as them being released, naw. Too soon.

    I'm not sure there will be a battle over them. Didn't AB say in his interview he wanted her buried in Australia?

    I think it is too soon for them to be released, but they wanted to have a service now that her death is confirmed, and the funeral/burial will take place in Australia. They might have a battle over where in Australia, I guess, but I doubt AB will contest her being repatriated. MOO.

    I think AB and his mom likely arranged it, since they didn't attend the vigil, but that's just my speculation. I think the public vigil was for the town, and this for the family/friends, from what I gather.

    Interesting post in the thread that you bumped Ducky, seems like the big wigs in OZ are already helping ED get her remains.

    Zahra is a citizen of AU, so IMO she should go home to her mom in AU.
    AB made arrangements in US for memorial.
    IMO, Zahra will have another memorial and burial in AU.
    Giving to St. Judes for Children is a wonderful thing to do.
    And I am sure there is a Children's Cancer research in AU also to donate in her honor.
    IMO no memorial were she had to live, h*llhouses.
    If anything a living tree or garden in a park or playground or anywhere Zahra would be happy.

    Hopefully AB is arrested along with EB by then and in jail.
    If not AB better wear bullet proof clothes..........to many enemies!
    I am so afraid of a riot!

    Sadly, from reading over at HM, Emily found out about the memorial service from reading about it there. She has posted a few times today, and my heart breaks for her.
