I am really worried, very concerned.Not because I might be wrong,I am convinced she disposed of her children, but in particular, killed Tegan. But because if she is allowed to live a life, free from Jail, where she belongs, she will probably first bask in the limelight. But more importantly, have another child down the track that she does not care for and dispose of that child as well. There are so many facts in this case it i scary.Even scarier is the the way Defence teams become spin doctors and try to turn it all around.Great, that is their job, I do not know how they live with themselves doing it but we move on. If this woman is allowed to continue in society she will have more children with not an inkling of intent in keeping them. Children to Keli are an inconvenience, like last years outfits.
Have a look at this picture.It tells a lot about the woman.On trial for killing her baby and she has such an obsession with the attention, she goes out and gets fake blonde hair, and tips, foils whatever they are.Play it down a bit? No way I want to look as good as possible.This is my time in the spotlight I deserve… Well Keli I despise you and this week I hope you meet your maker and no juror gets trapped in the web of lies you have spun dear!
But to show I am not all that bad, read this by her defence team.Hopefully next well I can tick them off one by one when she is behind bars and all the hair salons and B list parties…
THERE were 20 key reasons the jury at the Keli Lane trial should have reasonable doubt about her guilt and acquit her of murdering her baby, a court heard yesterday.
Lane’s barrister Keith Chapple SC yesterday continued his closing address, saying he could point to 20 “things we don’t know” which contradicted the Crown case for a conviction.
“These are vital matters, we submit, members of the jury, they are not just waffle,” Mr Chapple said.
“I am not just a barrister going on, banging on about things, (and) this isn’t a movie that you see and go home and think, ‘Gee, it was a movie.’ This isn’t a movie.”
Lane has pleaded not guilty to murder, and not guilty to two counts of lying in documents used during the adoption of two other children, one born before and one after Tegan.
Mr Chapple submitted the Crown had not proved its case beyond reasonable doubt, arguing:
1. We do not even know that the alleged victim is dead.
2. If she is dead, we don’t know how she died.
3. If she is dead, we don’t know who caused the death, if anyone did – because we don’t know. It could have been an accident and people do terrible things to cover things up.
4. If Tegan lane is dead we don’t know that it was the deliberate act of Keli Lane that caused her death.
5. We don’t know that if … Keli Lane caused her death we don’t know that it was done with the intention to kill her.
6. We don’t know why evidence is ignored in the Crown case which contradicts their case, which doesn’t fit their theories.
7. We don’t know why a supposed motive (is alleged) when it’s really a motive for giving Tegan to the natural father, or it’s really a motive for adoption.
8. We don’t know why the investigation in this case, if it is so serious, was so poor. It lacked urgency from the word go … it passed from policeman to policeman and it’s still going on while the trial’s going on.
9. We don’t know why the search itself is done illogically, and indeed poorly, we submit.
10. We don’t know why it’s suggested why a person who led a life like Keli Lane did can’t make an arrangement with Tegan’s father like she said she did. It mightn’t be what a policeman or prosecutor would do, but in real life it’s the sort of thing ordinary people do.
11. We don’t know why the Crown even dreams up murder. There’s no eyewitnesses, there’s no scientific evidence, there’s nothing.
12. We don’t know why the Crown case has evidence changing after so long, during the trial itself, having things taken back from you and given new things, people saying things that are different.
13. We don’t know why … when (the jury heard she’d adopted children before and after Tegan) that you wouldn’t think that the evidence itself supports her when she said she gave Tegan to the natural father.
14. We don’t know why you would think a girl, who has no criminal record, would suddenly murder her own baby.
15. We don’t know know if Tegan’s name remained Tegan Lane or Tegan Lee Lane, and if it wasn’t that makes the searches in effective to start off with, we would submit, going to schools.
16. We don’t know if Andrew Morris/Norris is who he said he was.
17. We don’t even know if Andrew Morris was the age he said he was – how does (Keli Lane) know?
18. We don’t know if Tegan’s birth, under whatever name, was ever registered anywhere, except here, in fact, because of the search that was done.
19. We don’t know what it’s suggested – really – in the end, we submit the evidence is unclear and nobody has got a clock on it, what the passage of time really was between the time that Keli left the hospital and arrived at (her parent’s house in Fairlight).
20. We don’t know, with what we suggest are all of the problems in the case and no doubt there are others that you have seen … why it’s suggested that you would find Keli Lane guilty of murder when the onus of proof is on the Crown to prove the elements of the charge beyond reasonable doubt. There is no onus on Keli to prove anything. If they can’t prove the elements of the charge of murder beyond a reasonable doubt, it is your duty, members of the jury, to find her not guilty.
Justice Anthony Whealy is expected to begin his summing up to the jury today, with deliberations expected to begin by week’s end.
