Gerard Baden-Clay Trial-Day 11


 DAY 11 GBC we are told will take the stand. Defence are going through the history like one does before being inducted into the hall of fame! What HE will tell the jury.

Byrne: Gerard will tell you that…………blah blah.Well just let him.

You know why the silk is telling the story?

Because GBC will not say it like this, succinct and factual sounding like a lawyer.

They want some seeds planted in jury heads before dickhead gets up and stuffs it all up after rehearsing for 12 months

Another classic defense tactic

Posting tweets, will tidy up tonight, never sure whats coming next

GERARD Baden-Clay will reveal today whether he intends to give or call evidence in his defence.

The former Brookfield real estate agent, 43, has pleaded not guilty in the Supreme Court in Brisbane to murdering his wife Allison Baden-Clay and to dumping her body 13km away beneath the Kholo Creek bridge at Anstead on April 19, 2012.

Prosecutor Todd Fuller QC yesterday wound up the Crown case following 10 days of evidence, including testimony from 71 witnesses and more than 170 exhibits.

Baden-Clay’s final interview to police who were searching for his missing wife was played to the jury.

In the 27-minute interview, the accused told search co-ordinator Sergeant Greg Matthies he was feeling “shithouse” when they met at the Brookfield Showgrounds on April 21, 2012 to discuss his wife’s last movements.

Baden-Clay told the officer he went to bed about 10pm on April 19, 2012, and woke the next day at 6am to find her missing.

He said that wasn’t unusual because his wife would often walk in the mornings and he thought she must have slept in the bed because her side of the doona was folded back.

He said his wife was “really looking forward” to attending a real estate conference that day and planned to leave early.

He told the officer he was rushing to get ready when he cut himself shaving.

“I was rushing and I cut myself, which is what everybody is so concerned about,” he said.

Baden-Clay said he asked his daughter to help him put a Band-Aid over it.

He told the officer it took his wife about 45 minutes to get ready in the morning and he sent her a text message at 6.20am: “Good morning, hope you slept well. Where are you? None of the girls are up yet.”

He said he called his wife, then texted her again at 6.41am: “Al, getting concerned. Where are you? The app doesn’t say either? H and S now up. I’m dressed and about to make lunches. Please just text me back or call! Love, G.”

The court was told the night she went missing, Allison Baden-Clay and her husband had planned to discuss his infidelity. She drew up a list of questions she had planned to ask.

hey twitter thing showing error…hang tight

  1. There are a couple of things I find puzzling. The phone calls that GBC made to ABC’s and NBC’s phones on the morning he reported ABC missing. Seems odd. If he knew where she was it looks like an act to cover-up, and seems a bit elaborate. .
    Also, a day or two before ABCs body was found I recall that there was some really heavy rainfall in the area with creeks being up, and local flooding, etc. This metrology site records very heavy falls on 28th and 29th. I’ve not heard any of this mentioned. I’ve often wondered if it had anything to do with moving the body, especially since the Tymolum Scout Camp is just upstream.

    1. Hi TBW. The phone records have been his undoing.

      Also, Allison’s body was found to have not been moved (she was placed there after her passing and remained there until her body was found) – tidal lines and the autopsy report showed this.

          1. Yeah … there was an indentation in the soil which was still present in August 2012. The Hydrologist gave evidence that the tides had not moved her body which was placed in that position at death or shortly after death.

It does make a difference who the accused knows and is associated with. I frankly will never figure out what clout GBC had over these lenders of personal fortune.

  3. Hi gang!! I’m back:) I am looking forward to reading all your comments in order to get updated.
    I knew ABC was coming home but didn’t want to divulge that prematurely as I knew I would be off for a few days. I found it difficult not to share with you.
    I thought of you all during the nearly 3 hours of dental surgery and was back to writing notes about gbc friends from Toowoomba and exploring the Baptist Church/Wealth 3 days ago. After writing 11 pages of that and the accounting. I know I am not the only one asking’ where did all that money disappear’. the rent did not eat that amount up. Frustrating and puzzling and relevant.
    I don’t know how long I’ll be staying on today but hope to chat with a few of you.

  4. I’m split 50/50 on whether GBC will take the stand.
    So far he’s taken the no comment route, so I half expect him to continue doing that.

    If he’s been able to be coached by his defense team & is great dealing with quick replies, then he might make himself available for cross examination.

    1. He would get ripped to shreds in cross examination. So if he wants to nail a few more into his own coffin he is most welcome to. The prosecutors have pockets full for him

    2. Hi ace2- I’m really thinking he won’t take the stand. I think his defence more than realizes how many versions of the same question he has given. And how often that has happened. I wrote them down and found at least ten multiple answers. He would be a blast to cross examine. PC would have great fun. I’m sure they would love to have him testify. A good CP lives for that cross -ex. Gbc’s problem has always been; he believes his own lies.

      1. Exactly, he’s given multiple conflicting excuses or explanations almost every comment he’s made. And all his excuses/explanations were either proven to be false or are completely unreasonable to believe.

        1. Remember Phil Broome’s take on GBC; “He has a habit of answering a question with a question”. That gives liars the time to make up an answer other than the truth. PB was talking about when they were asking to see the accounting books and where the $$ was going/ being used for.

  5. Re the Big Question, Will GBC be Taking the Stand ?

    My guess is it will come down to whether GBC is instructing his Legal Team, or if they are instructing him.

    If GBC is calling the shots, his over rated opinion of his own abilities would most probably have him thinking he could show the Prosecution a thing or two, however, if his ego has diminished as a result of him reviewing just how well his Perfect Murder has panned out, and he is allowing his Defense Team to call the shots, they would surely realize that the less the Jury see and hear of him the less damage he can do to his cause.

    It is my bet that his Defense Team will insist he not take the stand.

          It’s terrible footage, semi dark. I said to Todd Fuller during recess, I could have done a better job. In my opinion their photographer set it up on the wrong side of the river and didn’t take into account the movement of the sun. (Shooting into the sun produces darker photos (under exposed) and this is exactly what the time lapse looks like. Their problem not mine haha!

        So judge wants NOTHING reported outside courtroom that jurors (even though they are told dont read papers, radio, tv or google etc) might see. Great in 1968.

    1. Does this mean he just gets up, makes a statement, and steps down, or does taking the stand mean that he is then subject to cross examination by both the Prosecution and his own Legal Team ?

      The more he chooses to say, the more the discrepancies with earlier statements will beevident, and the more obvious it will be to the Jury that he is a perpetual liar.

      I bet the prosecution will be rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of questioning him as to his conversation with Allison the evening of April 19, and what answers he gave to the Questions in her Diary, and in particular, what Allison’s reaction was when he advised her that Tony “Tiny Tits” McHugh would also be going to the Conference the next day.

          1. Re TM alibi… I’m really interested as to why she wasn’t really interrogated by police in the first place. In addition to GBC she had motive and opportunity… She said in her last affidavit that she was home alone, her boys had gone to be around 9.30pm and her unit complex had no security or CCTV cameras… Isn’t it feasible then that she could leave the unit and go to the BC residence? Were the CCTV cameras checked for her car? Through st Lucia to Brookfield? She was adamant that GBC tell Allison about the chance meeting at conference the next day.. If he fobbed her off and said he wasn’t going to tell Allison and if she was this volatile woman he claims isn’t it reasonable to assume TM could have done something to Allison?? In addition… When asked if he had left the girls alone at home that night? Technically in saying no.. He could also mean ‘no… I didn’t leave them alone….. I left my sister or father or mistress home with them’! So they technically weren’t left home alone…

    1. Pathetic isn’t it ML, it reads so badly with all we know. Trying to explain all situations, like his family did, oh she was always sad, blah blah but fact is they never had anything to do with each other. DISGUSTING. Deep down do his family know or are they heads in sand, fingers in ears, BUT this is how we fix these things.
      Trials get perjurers every day in court, they rarely go for family of defendants after trial ends. SO its a green light to bullshit and manipulate everything.

      2. Your observation sounds quite familiar… “Trials get perjurers every day in court, they rarely go for family of defendents after trial ends.” The same thing happens in the Family Court. The Magistrate and Registrars know who is telling the truth and who is lying. They are not fools. Perjury is perjury… lying to the Court, attempting to pervert the course of justice even. Perhaps we need to change our system so that these people are held accountable, too. Then it might serve as a deterrent to others who think they can tell porkies on oath and get away with it.

    2. Yes but they all do this, blame someone else, try to explain away all the details.

      The fact still remains that:
      * Someone died and it’s highly unlikely that death was suicide.
      *History of conflict, disintegrating marriage & plan to leave marriage for mistress.
      *Crippling debt that required urgent payments.
      *Blood evidence in vehicle.
      *Alibi given several conflicting versions, all false or unreasonable.
      *Conflicting statements given to police.
      *Fingernail/’shaving cuts’ evidence
      *Both marriage & affair were to come head to head the following day
      *Overwhelming deceptive conduct to wife, mistress, police, business partners.

      What GBC must do is successfully convince the jury that all of this evidence doesn’t matter, that Alison committed suicide or another party committed the crime and I think he’ll have an uphill battle doing it.

      Juries look at the evidence and the evidence is too strong to ignore.

If he only said that to shut her up, why would he have given her such a close date ( I can’t remember when he sent that email and I’m to lazy to check) however I do remember it wasn’t that long before 1st July. If he was just doing it to shut her up, surely you would give a date 6-12 months down the track. He has had 2 years to find an answer for everything in my opinion.

          Let’s hope Allison’s birthday will be celebrated with a right trouncing by the Prosecution – happening to coincide on the very day of the promised July 1st to TMH!

  35. Listening to the opening was incredible:
    1.Claiming that Allison was anxious as a child trying to get approval from her parents (how dare he do this to her parents)
    2.Allison was basically seriously ill with depression for the best part of 14 years
    3.Gerard did most of the parenting, household work etc up until about 2011.(Mrs Dickie writing notes +++)
    4. Toni was a volatile person – not unusual that she “lost it” and the relationship was just physical, GBC made it clear that he was never going to leave Allison and was “torn by guilt” – for three years????
    5.GBC only met with Toni at Christmas 2011 to apologise to her and tell her it was all his fault and he had not used her…..however, they kept meeting and had sex at least twice before April 2012.
    6. Implication that GBC only had affairs because Allison would not have sex with him and did not give him the “appreciation, acknowledgement and attention” which “flattered” him.
    7.Allison checked his phone for calls every night – this must be leading to an inference that she did this, found evidence of the calls to and from Toni that day and put the phone back on the charger and then in great distress and effected by alcohol took an overdose of Zoloft – and apparently walked to Kholo bridge and had a nap.

    2. In the opening the redundancy from Flight Centre was said to be as a result of “terrorist attacks” – bit different to story given by GBC.
    3. Apparently Allison deteriorated at around September 2011 as a result of GBC’s decision to sell the Flight Centre shares – isn’t that when she found out about the affair? NO doubt disposing of the only investment they have and no doubt both contributed was also a source of concern.

  36. It’s clearly business as usual for Mr Business-As-Usual. He wasn’t feeling “shithouse” today as he proceeded to drag the alleged “one” that he loved through the mud at Kholo once again. This man is a wonder parent, who couldn’t breast feed, but still achieved “80%-90%-95%” of the parenting duties – including daily feeding and bathing, while that couch-potato Allison just crashed out. He would even “drop everything” and rush home from work to help out. And his stellar career – he was regularly a “top achiever” in his heyday at Flight Centre; Allison a dud who couldn’t operate a computer. He found a good job but she found a job “that hardly paid anything” and no mention of him suing the company. And when this man-of-all-seasons decided to “make some decent money”, he proceeded to interview all the real estate agents in the area (and not vice versa) before deciding his position. What a hero… “We were very good” he boasts about the Baden-Clay real estate Dream-Team. And that useless, depressed mum, well she couldn’t drive a car properly and needed an intercom system installed in garage to summon GBC to do his 95%. This man is amazing.

    The testimony about their time in Switzerland was comical; Allison paranoid about avalanches and “the sky falling in”… Has this man lost the plot or what… And Allison had night time custody of his phone with password access… Yes that explains the nocturnal unplugging and plugging of his phone while sleeping.

    The blazing wagon of gunpowder kegs is about to explode. The Brisbane Times described his testimony as “at times rambling” LOL.
    What do our independent observers say? Under cross examination he will probably instruct the prosecutor to “keep his voice down” otherwise he might start feeling “shithouse” again.

  37. Just by viewing photos of someone you can see from varying images over years whether someone has aged. Eyes appear heavier hair thinner no longer smiling in photos. Several attributes would suggest illness of some kind. And I do not know anyone with even short term depression that doesn’t become afflicted briefly with a physical illness especially digestive problems insomnia headaches/migraines.
    Now; look at Allison’s photos over the years. Her eyes are bright wide sparkling almost saying look at these little princess’ of mine in family photos! Her hair is shiny curled well trimmed. She is wearing make-up including lipstick. Definitely not signs of a depressed person in medical distress. Physical appearance hides nothing. Allison actually looked healthier than he did and younger too.

        1. I almost fell asleep listening to him today. on and on and on at a snails pace crying way too much!! I had to put my hand over my mouth to cover my snort when he started whining like a woman with his high pitched sniffly voice.I swear i nearly lost it! If nothing else it was embarrassing and awkward to watch. He had some very specific dates for things that happened 15 years ago. I know i wouldn’t remember exact dates of SO many things from 15 years ago! Way too rehearsed but in all honesty he did a good job of painting himself as a loving husband and an all round good guy in the two hours he spoke. I feel it will all unravel during cross examination.

      1. You’re most welcome!

        I was trying to get more down but the garbage was flowing thick and fast today so not much humour interjected I’m afraid.

        I was so full of sarcasm but no time to record it. Haha. Will flesh it out in the blog.

        Just so disbelieving about the yellow shirts…. and I can’t remember if I wrote it down but him not really liking Alison’s family??

        Do you think that’s coz they could see through him from the start.

        Priscilla knew from day dot that he had killed her daughter.

        I suspect they knew from the time they started dating that something wasn’t quite right about him….

          1. Judge was DEFINITELY unimpressed, as we’re the Dickies. I can’t see the jury from the overflow court upstairs but that would have been interesting… I think they will realise he’s trying to play them for fools. Olivia often fidgety or head down. At times she looked worried. Other Bwanas were stoic as usual. Everyone in overflow courtroom completely disbelieving. He’s just a bizarre creature.

            1. Thank you so much for your notes, I’m about to read them all. Your a Gem LJC. It was great the you, Gerry and Bella could all go to Court to support Mr and Mrs Dickie and family. You are all gems 🙂

        1. Yeah … probably not much they could do about it though – like many parents. Mrs Dickie said about Allison’s efforts “it was all for Gerard”.

  40. Somebody….way back up there, mentioned that the Autopsy Report ruled out death by drowning.

    It doesn’t……it states drowning can not be ruled out as the cause of death. (and they include the result of the Diatom testing)

    Same for the fall.

    Same for drugs/alcohol.

  41. The only Aftershave for GBC is” BRUT”, mixed with Crocodile Tears. He must rehearse his, Im just a good and loving husband to my beautiful wife garbage speeches, every night in his Arthur Gorrie Protection Prison Remand cell!……
    I Wish I was on the jury panel……….I find you GBC – ” GUILTY “……….PSYCHOPATH! SOCIOPATH! – NARCACISTIC! – LIAR! – MURDERER!…….Guilty on all counts!…..
    Can the jury not see that Gerald Baden Clay and his perfect Defence council Byrne , with their cross examination techniques and his long drawn out fabricated speeches, he is using poor Alisons depression- and are trying their best to diminish a murder, to look like Alison committed suicide and jumped off Kholo Bridge…..If only the prosecution cross examination can crack and break this bastard open, like the hard boiled rotten egg he is!……………………………………

  42. All we can assume is the Judge is giving GBC “lots of rope to hang himself”.

    Clearly GBC thinks the jurors are going to appreciate his long-winded story and set him free. The Wally! Instead of prattling on about things that happened more than a decade ago, how about telling us what actually happened on the night of 19 April and in the early hours of 20 April 2012?

    If it wasn’t Allison fighting for her life, who put the scratches on his cheek sometime between when he tucked his girls into bed and when they woke up the next morning? Not a soul in the Court thinks his story of the old razor makes sense. Nor did the forensic physicians.

    Why would Allison even go for a walk the next morning, having had her hair especially done for a conference later that day? And how did he know exactly what she was supposedly out walking in (and would eventually be found in) if she was “dressed in her pj’s in front of the television” when he allegedly went to sleep that night? And if she suddenly decided to kill herself in the middle of the night, perhaps despondent that he had re-connected with his mistress, how did she manage to get all the plants of the garden tangled up in her hair first? And how did her blood and hair come to be in the back of her own car still in the carport at home, if she has taken herself down to the bridge in the middle of the night?? (There has been no other explanation from anyone in the family that we have heard.)

    And how did she manage to get herself under the bridge after jumping to her death without breaking a single bone in her body? (There is no evidence that she ingested sufficient water to drown, or that her body was washed there after all the rain that week.)

    Something terrible happened that night. We are not remotely interested in their overseas trips, or his bragging about his jobs, or his alleged victimhood supposedly over many years.

    Just tell us the facts, GBC, then we can lock you up for a very long time.

    1. The Autopsy Report by the Govt Forensic Pathogists offers reasoning for the possibility of most of those things. (Cause of death stuff)

    2. He not only had scratches on his face but also on his chest & back that he a few days later tried to conceal by staging a car accident into a cement pylon.

              I just go by the “Top Ten” type lists of names for eras. I don’t think Lulabelle or Lurlene would be on a Gen Kylie list, so Lisa it was….but I like the other one. A bit regal.

  43. His testimony so far is how amazing he is and detailing every problem & failure of Allison.

    I loved the comment ‘Is this a murder trial or a travel show’ lol

  44. To Gerry and LJC2013..and others who have given us a peek inside the GBC court proceedings…thank you very much. One can read as much into body language and what is not said…as to what is actually in the court transcripts.

    A cheeky question: as a consequence of what happened on Wednesday, has your overall “confidence meter” improved or retreated?

    Like

    1. Hahaha @ Shadow… A cheeky answer – both! I’m confident personally (not based on Wednesday’s events) that the prosecution has got this. I’m just praying the defence can’t raise reasonable doubt. They certainly can’t do it with physical evidence so I think it will come down to whether or not Ferret Face can sell his story in a convincing way. We can see through his bullshit. I can’t see why they wouldn’t. Just hoping it is a bogan-free jury….

  45. I’m so sorry everyone… I’m desperately trying to blog about Thursday’s events but I think I’ve been quite emotionally affected by this trial. I’m tired and listless and not my normal jovial self. Bear with me and I will get there (ASAP) 🙂
