Gerard Baden-Clay: Top 5 News Coverage Links to Wife Allison’s Murder
By Arlene Paredes | June 14, 2012 12:19 PM EST
Gerard Baden-Clay appeared at the Brisbane's Magistrate's Court Thursday for the murder of his wife Allison. He was remanded to appear again at a hearing on July 9.
Nearly two months since his call for help, Gerard was charged with the murder.
Gerard, 41, arrived at Indooroopilly police station Wednesday afternoon. Later, he was seen being walked into the police car, handcuffed. He was then driven to the Brisbane watchhouse by the police officers.
Here is the Top 5 of the clues found in the news coverage of Allison's murder that may reconcile with Gerard's arrest.
1. Gerard reportedly said Allison did not come home from her usual morning walk, but she was last seen in the previous evening. The information is weak as to what could have happened in the hours leading to the police report.
2. There was at least one witness report of seeing vehicles similar to the Baden-Clay family car in the vicinity of Kholo Creek at Anstead on the night of April 19. Police seized the family car, but has since been returned to Gerard after police tests were made.
3. Police had earlier said Allison "knew her killer," and her murder was not a random crime.
4. Police had also said Allison's body may have been washed away due to heavy rains days before her body was found. Gerard is charged with "unlawfully interfering with a corpse," but police had not shared information on how interfering was observed in Allison's remains.
5. Reports of Allison's troubled marriage surfaced in the midst of police investigations to solve her murder.
Allison's remains were buried on May 11. Her parents thanked the police, the media, and the community for their sympathies and support. Gerard did not speak during her funeral. Donations for the welfare of their three young children were requested instead of flowers.
Gerard's lawyer, Darren Mahony, told reporters Gerard was "devastated" about the charges: murder and unlawful interfering with a corpse. The lawyer also said he would go to the Supreme Court Thursday to apply for Gerard's bail.
