G’day Guys n Gals on Aussie Criminals,
Firstly can I publicly again thank Robbo for giving me an opportunity to become involved and for having faith in me. I feel like a Claytons crime scene photographer, maybe I shouldn’t have been in banking for 20yrs and gone down the detective path. I do love investigating and putting pieces of the puzzle together. I’ve followed the case since the day Allison was reported missing. I’m enjoying doing my own research / observations and allowing you guys a chance to see photos of the crime scene (final resting place) that you otherwise wouldn’t.
I’ve attended each day of the Gerard Baden Clay trial and seen all the photos (rather the lack of them). My main focus has been on the placement of Allison’s body in relation to the bridge, it’s structure and the surrounds. Previously I published photos showing low tide.
Given the defense want to show tidal flows (by way of time lapse) and expert witness it was only right that I go back and photograph high tide.
As I’ve mentioned in previous postings I’m very much a visual person, I see things from a different perspective.
The one key visual that I wanted to replicate to you, the viewer, was the position of her body (almost side on/ parallel to the concrete ledge) in relation to:
1. The concrete ledge (the mostly likely place her body was tossed from)
2. The concrete beams of the bridge (using the pillar as a guide)
This in my view helps to quash any perception the defense team want to prove that she committed suicide by jumping off the edge. Of course firstly she had to magically walk 14km or get a taxi didn’t she with no car.
So when you look at the photos where I show the ledge and concrete beams, use that as a guide when counting how far in under the road her body was. Unless her body could fly it’s impossible for it to have come from the top of the bridge.
I also stumbled across another possible area, not brought up by the prosecution, where the body could have been moved (transported) along, to reach its final resting spot. This is just a theory, we will never know the true route taken. But if I was wanting to move a body (with assistance) this area is perfect!
The police in evidence to the court said they looked at the scout camp (1.5km) and Macpherson Roslen P/L (3.1km) from the bridge. But the MOST obvious route to me is via the dry creek bed of Little Ugly Creek which runs parallel (city side) in most places along Mt Crosby Rd. It’s as flat as a biscuit, concealed very well from main road, so no torch lights would have been spotted from the roadside if driving past. There are no houses around. There’s an awesome access point to the creek on Wirrabarra Rd and a well worn track where cars have been driven. A car could have driven well into this scrub easily to park and would never be seen. Your landmark (to finding this track) is a road barrier with the word “Road Closed” spray painted. So in the attached photos you’ll see the flatness. At some point I believe it’s plausible that the body is then bought up to Mt Crosby Rd (near a Telegraph pole) with only a walking distance of 150-200m to the bridge (remembering back then the grass was long so person/ persons could have ducked down with approaching headlights. I didn’t have time to walk the entire creek, but as far as proximity goes and convenience to Kholo Creek it’s a route of choice I would have used (with assistance) to avoid detection. I have gone back over the witness testimony and witness 26 lives at 670 Mt Crosby Rd. His dog started howling around 12.30am and 1am he also heard someone mumbling. This property is diagonally across from the path (parallel to the creek bed) that I found below Mt Crosby. Very interesting !
