Been a few days since an update and the other thread is getting very slow to load thanks to hundreds upon hundreds of comments and discussion. The stuff I’m hearing around the traps is amazing, and if I were in any way whatsoever involved in this I would be getting my affairs in order, because there is not a lot of time left on freedom street.
The Original extensive coverage here folks, with many more pictures and important videos…It is slow to load with so many comments…https://aussiecriminals.com.au/2012/04/26/what-has-happened-to-missing-mother-allison-baden-clay/
UPDATE 16/05/12 WITNESSES COME FORWARD ON CAR
A WITNESS has told police of seeing two four-wheel-drives near Kholo Creek crossing early on the day Allison Baden-Clay was reported missing.
It is alleged a white four-wheel-drive didn’t have its headlights on, only parking lights, and was closely tailing a smaller, blue four-wheel-drive at about 4am on April 20.
The witness told of noticing the vehicles at Anstead in Brisbane’s west – within 2km of where the 43-year-old mother of three’s body was found 10 days later. Police said Mrs Baden-Clay was reported missing by her husband Gerard at 7.30am Friday after she failed to return from her usual morning walk.
He told police he had last seen his wife at their Brookfield home about 10pm the previous night.
It is understood several members of the community have come forward with information, triggering a number of new lines of investigation.
Police have established a major incident room with detectives, intelligence analysts and forensic officers to help with the investigation.
A trust fund has been set up for the daughters of Allison Baden-Clay. Donations can be made through the NAB to BSB: 084 737, account: 133 196 502, or via email@example.com
They are believed to be awaiting results from forensic tests including toxicology.
Mrs Baden-Clay’s funeral, held last Friday, included a guard of honour by students from Ipswich Girls’ Grammar where she was vice-captain.
Talks are under way to establish a memorial plaque for the mother of three as tributes continue to pour in.
Several fundraisers have been held.
Well-wishers wanting to help the Baden-Clay family have been encouraged to donate to the Allison Baden-Clay appeal. Donations can be made via NAB to BSB: 084737, account number: 133196502.
Celebrations at this week’s Brookfield Show, held just 200m from the Baden-Clays’ home, are expected to be somewhat sombre.
The show, which begins tomorrow at Brookfield Showgrounds where police set up a command post while they searched for Mrs Baden-Clay , was sponsored last year by Gerard Baden-Clay’s Century 21 real estate franchise.
The Baden-Clay family have been members of the Brookfield Show Society in the past but it is believed they did not renew their membership this year.
The show is expected to attract about 20,000 people.
Brookfield Show Society president James Booth said the event would be a rallying point for the community affected by the tragic loss of Mrs Baden-Clay.
How long more will the public have to wait for the police to make an arrest over the brutal killing of Allison Baden-Clay?
Time is creeping on and the police have assured the people of Brisbane’s western suburbs there is no crazed killer on the loose ready to attack again.
If that is true, they must have their quarry well and truly within their sights and must be superbly confident the killer will not strike again.
Speculation remains at fever pitch across southeast Queensland as to the identity of the killer.
There is even a suggestion in legal circles that up to 5 people may be arrested over the murder, including accessories after the fact. Presumably, if that is right, the police will make simultaneous arrests over the next few days, which would make a 5-pronged interviewing process incredibly demanding on the police as well as putting intense pressure on those in custody to confess.
Speculation is rife that the killer may have even attended the church service at St Paul’s in Ipswich last Friday which might explain the incredible rumour circulating at the moment that the police had secret microphones planted in the flowers at the service in case someone whispered words which could be construed by a jury as a confession or an admission or indication of guilt.
It seems the police are leaving no stone unturned in this case with phone taps, vehicle tracking devices and seizure of medical and computer records no doubt just the tip of the iceberg, as the net closes on the killer who will have more explaining to do than Peter Slipper and Craig Thomson combined.
This is shaping up as the murder trial to end all trials in Queensland with justice for Allison Baden-Clay hopefully only hours away.
A SCIENTIST who gave forensic evidence in the defence of Lindy Chamberlain says Allison Baden-Clay’s body would be telling the story of her death to detectives investigating her murder.
As police reveal they are close to an arrest, one of Australia’s best-known biological scientists, professor emeritus Barry Boettcher, said pathology results would be telling police what Mrs Baden-Clay can’t.
The mother-of-three’s body was found on the banks of the Kholo Creek at Mt Crosby on April 30, 11 days after she allegedly left her Brookfield home for a late-night walk.
She was reported missing at 7.30am the following morning by her husband, Gerard.
Her body was discovered by a passing canoeist, who spotted her lying on the bank of the creek under a bridge.
It is not known whether she had been there the entire time, whether she had been moved, or whether heavy rain in the days before the discovery washed her downstream.
Prof Boettcher said in many cases, it could be easily determined.
“When somebody dies, blood will pool to the lowest portions of the body depending on how they are positioned,” he said.
“If the body is then moved, that could be determined from the body being in a different position to where the blood has already settled if the blood is not appropriate to the new position.”
He said the blood would not re-pool if a body had been in a certain position for some days.
“Forensic people would readily be able to determine whether a body had been moved after several days,” Prof Boettcher said.
The professor said it was unusual to get useful information from under someone’s fingernails.
“Material under the fingernails would suffer from being in water but secondly – and I have specifically done a study on this – it is a beautiful spot for bacteria to grow,” Prof Boettcher said.
“Material under the fingernails will get digested from under the fingernails in just a few hours.
“I often scoff at television programs that show people being convicted on vital evidence obtained from under fingernails because it needs to be obtained very rapidly.”
He said it could take weeks for police to receive all the results from forensic tests.
Former lecturer and author of Crucial Errors in Murder Investigations Ted Duhs, who has worked with Prof Boettcher, said it was obvious police were working to eliminate various theories on the killer.
“A murder is about theories, who the perpetrator was, what the motive was and so on,” he said.
“I noticed the investigating detective said he did not believe it was a random killing – and if that is true then they have eliminated at least one theory.”
Detective Superintendent Mark Ainsworth confirmed this weekend that police did not believe Mrs Baden-Clay was killed by a random attacker.
“At this stage we don’t believe it is random,” he said.
“We believe that Allison may have known her attacker.”
Yesterday, Mrs Baden-Clay’s three daughters, aged 10, 8 and 5, had their first Mother’s Day without her.
My Poem dedicated to Allison by Robbo
Silly man, thought you could play
By making the wife just go away…
Weak and cowardly, you lied and lied
Knowing your kids mummy, had already died
You tried to hide and play so sad
Made everyone around you so very mad
Coward Clay, a poor excuse of a man
You are on your way to a prison van.
