Justice Peter Applegarth – Adelaidetimes.com.au

10.00 am Court – 3rd Floor, Court 3, Supreme Court, 415 George Street, Brisbane
GBC looked healthy, sitting in front of the public gallery behind thick glass with the Lawyers, Barristers and Judge in front.  GBC was suntanned with a short haircut, and a good weight.  He was wearing a nicely fitting suit and looked very smart.  At the beginning of the Pre-Trial, he was fiddling just a little, and drinking some water out of a paper cup.
I couldn’t see any family that I know from photos at all, there was a couple with their friend in the gallery with us, whom I thought looked like Allison’s side of the family.  When the evidence was discussed on what was done to poor Allison, the poor lady left, looking very upset, she then returned.  She and her husband held onto each other as they listened.
GBC’s Defense, in a very professional and conversational tone, interacted with the Judge, as if they were long time business partners who respected each other, immensely.
Justice Applegarth was giving GBC’s Defense every opportunity and scope to put forward their case in a fair manner.  First on the Agenda was the possibility of a Non-Publication Order.
GBC’s Defense was of course, adamant, that the media, blogs, and pre-conceptions of the general public, if any of the information from today was made public, will not allow the possibility of GBC having a Fair Trial.
Justice Applegarth was reluctant to give permission of a Non-Publication Order due to favouring Open Justice to allow a Fair Trial.  GBC’s Defense said that the problem is, is that there is repetition in the public domain and that there is already information in the media that should not be available.  The Judge asked if the evidence is self prejudicial and suggested that publicizing GBC’s case, in the proper manner, will then not be speculative to take the public’s attention.
Justice Applegarth also did comment that a lot of time has passed since GBC’s last court appearance, which would lessen the public’s interest with regard to the Jury Pool, as well as contempt, as long as they didn’t expose themselves to the general media, “memories are shorter” he stated.  GBC’s Defense politely disagreed.
10.25 am
GBC is reading his black folder that was on the chair on the other side from where he was sitting, and not watching his Defense interact with the Judge.
The people whom I thought may be Allison’s relatives, to my observation, where placed so that they could watch his every movement, so my supposition is that he was keeping himself busy due to being watched, from his right hand side.
In the end Justice Applegarth wrote an order that does not preclude fair and accurate reporting.
NEXT ON THE AGENDA
Justice Applegarth said that the evidence should be heard in open court.  He then raised the subject of insect bites, scratches, and marks and that Dr Milne will be on the stand shortly.
Mr Boyle for the Crown then stood to address Judge Applegarth.  Mr Boyle stated that the case is mainly circumstantial evidence and that they have to try to assess the probability of fact.
Justice Applegarth said that the Crown is to prove that Allison did not suicide, beyond a reasonable doubt.
GBC did not flinch or move a muscle of emotion.
Mr Boyle said that due to a weakness of evidence, this is not grounds for exclusion.  Evidence may inflame a jury with regard to the context of a circumstantial case.  He then referred to the Sika case.
Dr Milne, Court Approved Forensic Pathologist, called to give evidence.
On 1st May, 2012 there was a Post Morten exam of ABC and an Autopsy Report.
GBC reading his folder.
There are three possible injuries:
Cause of death – Subdural Hemorrhage (bleeding to the brain) as a possible injury.  Post Mortem changes make findings difficult.  When the brain was examined, it was grey on the surface, the nature of the material could not be determined; what is in evidence could be due to Post Mortem changes.  If there was an injury – blunt force trauma – from object or a surface.  This is a probability.
GBC listening and not moving
Subdural hemorrhage is a possibility, which can be most likely cause of death if there was a blunt force injury, one can expect an injury to the scalp and face, or laceration.  Due to Post Mortem changes, Dr Milne couldn’t assess.
There wasn’t a scull fracture from the CT scan; however, you don’t need a fracture for a Subdural Hemorrhage.
Other possible injury – Chest
Looking inside the sternum of the chest wall at the soft tissue and ribs, there wasn’t a rib fracture, there was most likely a hemorrhage from death or after death.
GBC reading his folder the entire time
Other possible causes are:
Smothering
Strangulation
The Defense asked Dr Milne if he would expect other injuries to be associated with the above.  Dr Milne said that if ABC was conscious, scratches and injuries will be seen inside the mouth and internally to the neck and face.  He said that he couldn’t assess the soft tissue at Post Mortem.  The neck wasn’t fractured if strangulation was attempted, although it is possible to be strangled without bone damage.
IN SUMMARY FROM GBC’S DEFENSE:
“The cause of death is unable to be determined?”
Doctor Milne said, “Yes.  There was a CT Scan which is an X-Ray investigation through a small tunnel creating images of the body and bone from different sections to see what is going on visibly.  The CT scan is State of the Art.  Images run through the body at 2mm and through the head and spine at 1mm.”
GBC’s Defense:  “Despite that, no cause of death, no definite injuries identified; however, you said that insect larvae in tissues raises the possibility of pre-injury.  Possible injuries to chest wall and the chipped tooth could be older.  Subdural Hemorrhage, if a true injury, indicates a blow to the head with force”.
Dr Milne said, “I can’t say if true or not”.
GBC’s Defense:  “Decomposition couldn’t confirm the possibility of Subdural Hemorrhage, “Possibility” is as high as it gets.  Chipped tooth and jaws may or may not be recent.  If recent, impact would be to the mouth with a mild force.  No obvious signs of trauma which may or may not be of origin.  Can’t be said recent or not recent.  Bruising inner chest wall if true injury impact, is probability of mild force.
GBC reading his folder
OTHER CAUSES OF DEATH
1.  GBC’s Defense: “Smothering and strangulation are possible with no supporting evidence if there was smothering or strangulation, there would be an injury from the hands, sheet or towel.  There weren’t any fractures?”
(GBC watching Doctor and drinking water)
Dr Milne:  “Depends on nature of strangulation, there wasn’t any physical evidence to support it”.
GBC’s Defense, “Doctor is speculating without evidence”.
“There was a possible injury to the chest wall.  Level of certainty to bruise, more than likely a bruise, rather than after Post Mortem.  This couldn’t be confirmed microscopically.”
GBC a bit flushed
GBC’s Defense then stated to Justice Applegarth after Dr Milne left, that his evidence is inadmissible.  He went on to quote other cases at great length to support his defense, i.e. prejudicial cases heard previously due to possibilities that the evidence will be of intense prejudicial value of speculation of causes from the Jury, so it is inadmissible.
GBC watching and listening, showing more interest, with a slight patina of sweat over his face.
GBC’s Defense stated that the highest of Dr Milne’s opinion for the Jury is a, “Possibility” so the above should be excluded.  Justice Applegarth said that the bruise will undercut the Suicide Theory.
Court adjourned.
Author’s note:  I noted when in Court, that the worms and larvae were not dwelled upon but glossed over. The Crown said very little, only their short statement.

    • Thank you so much Moonlight for the level of detail you have captured for us who could not be present. So this pre-trial hearing is about the admissibility of evidence. I am so glad that the Judge did not allow the non-publication order. Why should GBC be different from anyone else! The arguments will always be why evidence shouldn’t be allowed.

      So tomorrow will be the Crown’s turn, to reply and say why evidence should be admitted. It’s interesting while in court to notice how calm and chatty, almost, the barristers are. After all, this is their bread and butter and they do it every day. For us, there is so much more emotion invested. I do wonder who the couple were that you mention, that were upset. They must be relatives or close friends of Allison?

      Thank you once again for this fascinating insight.

  5. Dear Moonlight

    What an amazingly detailed description from the courtroom. Thank you so much.

    To have been in attendance must have been harrowing, to then be able to share with us the intricacies of what unfolded is most generous of you.

    Your observations and note-taking bring the proceedings to us in a really valuable way.

    Do you know if the court will definitely be sitting again tomorrow, or even for ensuing days?

    By the way, I didn’t get your post to my email – I had to go searching.

    I’m happy to admit that I am technologically challenged, but I wonder if others have also been unable to receive your excellent summation?

    Cheers and gratitude to you!

    • I’m just re-reading your post from this afternoon Moonlight. I think this statement “Justice Applegarth said that the bruise will undercut the Suicide Theory” is quite telling. In the Judge’s mind, the bruising is inconsistent with suicide. It makes me wonder whether the defence is still going down that avenue. The post-mortem cannot determine a cause of death, that has already been established at the committal hearing. It does not rule out what is a possibility, but that the Judge is saying it “undercuts the suicide theory” means how did Allison die, if not by suicide? She has died at the hands of someone.

      I think the legal argument and mumbo jumbo is just that, the barristers are jousting for position and the Judge makes up his mind at the end of the day, as to what is admissible and what isn’t in evidence, which is what this is all about.

      In reply to your comment Moonlight that you’re concerned at the lack of evidence placing GBC (at the scene), my personal belief is there is so much evidence to come that we are blissfully unaware of. At the committal it was determined there was enough evidence to commit GBC to trial. This would not hang on too many “possibilities” I would have thought, as this process is fairly rigorous and they don’t commit people to trial lightly. There have been many, many cases of perpetrators found guilty on circumstantial evidence. I trust that the evidence still hidden from the public will be damning. How I wish Yoshi was with us, to comment.

  6. Thank you so much Moonlight for your very detailed report. I must admit to a few sweaty problems my-self today! Thought the media silence was a bit deafening.
    Ah! So it can now be “proven” that suicide was not the cause of death. Ohhh! That is sweet.
    Not that I ever doubted, but it appears proving same is the all important maxim.
    Ummm, on another entirely note; looks like GBC is still showing no outward signs of grief for his beloved departed wife ….. dare I say, murdered departed wife?

      You are right, QCL, no grief from GBC, just fiddling, reading and then listening when it affected him. Just terrible.

      Like

      • I can’t help but feel GBC thought he was there as an interested observer to the proceedings, in his mind convincing himself that it was not “about him”. I was interested though, that you said Moonlight that he appeared to break into a light sweat at one point. Hey, who knows, maybe the lights in the courtroom were hot or he ate spicy food last night?

        I don’t think grief is something that is in his realm of experience. I do remember an image of him at Allison’s funeral where he appeared genuinely upset. But I have come to believe that this was to more do with “how did this happen, why am I not regarded as the upstanding motivational speaker to high school students, member of the Kenmore Chamber of Commerce, potential Liberal National Party candidate, it was not meant to be like this.”

        I agree that the media silence is eery, nothing much in the news at all and very different from the news-feeds during the committal hearing. I have a feeling tomorrow will be much more interesting, but not sure that we will hear about it unless one of us attends court.

  7. Regarding our own eye-witness account on today’s hearing:

    One thing that always troubles me a bit is that the Crown and defence lawyers, maybe even the magistrate/judge, are possibly all friends from their law school days. Perhaps they even socialise together with their families. That’s perfectly understandable, and to be expected.

    So I took heart from the observation that Justice Applegarth seems to be showing no fear, nor favour.

    Thanks again, Moonlight.

  8. A matter upon which I have been reflecting …..
    A bloke’s wife has gone missing, Possibly foul play involved. Could even be worse.
    Bloke goes public, hoping for clues that might ease his “poor distraught state of mind”.
    After a wee whittle (IMO) staged accident he is interviewed:
    Whilst waiting for words of sorrow, perhaps angst, perhaps any-bloody-thing at all regarding his dearly beloved wife (and mother of his children) mysteriusly gone missing:
    All that he can say is “I’m a little bit hurt, but I’m OK now.”
    Gulp! Still no words about the missing wife.
    Sorry folks….. It all came flooding back to me with the report of eye witness Court events today.
    Sort of like: ……..I’m a little bit concentrating right now about the matter at hand … ME. And how Me can be proven innocent. At all costs!
    Slight drips of sweat happening; (hopefully can blame something or somebody else.)

  10. Good morning everyone 😀

    What is worrying me, is that the Defense are going to try to prove that Allison suicided. They want all circumstantial evidence gone, and that will be their case.

    Like

    • Hi Moonlight, it’s possible that the defense would try the suicide strategy again at the trial (they don’t have too many options after all) but it didn’t go down well at the committal hearing. One reason for this was there was insufficient Zoloft in Allison’s system to cause death, and how do you then explain how she arrived at Kholo bridge in the first place, without a vehicle there? Walking the 14km to get there is pretty far-fetched.

      Of course it’s concerning that the onus is on the Crown to prove guilt, not for GBC to prove his innocence. But I doubt very much that the Judge would disallow the medical doctor’s evidence at trial, who conducted the autopsy, whether his findings were definitive or not. A jury would have to hear WHAT was found at the autopsy examination to make up their own minds.

      It would be fantastic if we could find out how Danny Boyle argued his side today, and what the Judge decides will be allowed or not. I’m sure he did a great job, as he is Allison’s voice now.

  11. Greeting to all, and especially to Moonlight. What a splendid report you have submitted, Moonlight.
    Thankyou also for the body language observations of the chief player. They appeared to change gradually as the day progressed.

    I note there was no mention made of the piece of latex glove found within Allison’s clothing.
    Personally, I thought that matter highly significant for two reasons.
    The first reason: Too many people of influence have appeared too quick to dismiss too much.
    This has been ongoing since day one.
    The second reason, it is possible her killer was wearing gloves to avoid incriminating evidence.

    ICanCU, Your post you considered tangential was actually what triggered these thoughts.
    And GHS’s hilarious post regarding blotting her social standing copy book may have answered the “why is it so” question.

    Regarding the piece of latex glove: The retrieval operation appears to have been carried out with extreme care and consideration. The gravity of the situation, was very much apparent even at that time.
    I thought that the talk of “Contamination at retrieval scene” was too quick. Inappropriately dismissed as irrelevant, it appeared.
    Had that contamination occurred during the retrieval, an incident report would have forthcoming. Cross contamination would have been considered high on the agenda.
    No retrieval member has ever made any report of missing a piece of his /her glove, to my knowledge.

    It appears like yet another cover up. This entire matter has been laced liberally with cover ups.
    These dismissals or cover-ups appear to come from people including those of “high social standing”.
    These dismissals of which there are many, (including the face time call late at night) are now beginning to take on a new meaning.
    The same conclusions appear capable of being drawn of the political figures who were quick to appear publicly supporting this Brookfield…er… “special social set”.

  12. One thing that keeps running through my mind.

    You know how lyrics to a song can affect you if you relate it to a loved one? The words can make you sad, or happy, or devastated depending on the context. I can’t listen to a song about a dog who died, etc., it hurts, because I loved him, or to talk about a family member who died, I still get teary, and I am sure my body language would show it, the same as everyone else when this happens.

    Whom I thought was Allison’s family member left, so upset, after hearing evidence from Dr Milne with regard to the Post Mortem, like you would expect anyone, in her position, who loves someone to do.

    GBC just fiddled and read his folder that faced away from whom I think was Allison’s family. I just can’t get over that. Then, when the discussions were about him, he showed interest.

    A Fair Trial runs both ways, not just in GBC’s way, but Allison’s too.

  13. Hi Everyone,

    Posting for Mike:

    Gee the prosecution case seems to be sooooo circumstantial , maybe too circumstantial … Dr Milner basically cannot determine cause of death , however Justice Applegarth appears to believe suicide is not on the cards. (that’s a plus)

    We do need to treat GBC as innocent until proven guilty and what a travesty if he didn’t do it … all of us that have bandied together cos we feel he’s a wife killer and when we put all the happenings together it sure looks that way … motive = tick ( and more than one motive) capability = tick early morning call to daddy = tick odd behaviour when police arrived = tick Defence council called before cops = tick Scratches evident = tick I was a little bit hurt , but i’m ok =tick no help in search = tick Public Office early support = tick ……. we can go on and on … but circumstantial.

    Lets hope Mr Boyle has a few things up his sleeve and can nail him .

    Being quite a jokester I always like to put a twist on any area I can , from your report and the postings of others I deduced as to why GBC was described yesterday as looking fit , healthy and full of zest ….and I shall share with you …..

    Not being privy to the layout of the facility he now calls home , but aware from the many prison doco’s I’ve watched I get a mental cartoon in my head of Dear Ol Gerry being allowed out in the ‘Exercise Yard’ for a couple of hours a day ….

    I picture him in a Footroot Flats style drawing , head held high , legs hitting the straps as he gathers speed , backside tucked in tightly , arms motioning him forward as he tears around the track with ‘Bubba’ closing in !! …….. LOL
