    What does he mean by he does not want to shock him, he inflicted the injuries on her, he should look at them. Monster, monster that is what this man is.

  • ReligiousZombie

    They said she was having "multiple love affairs." I wonder whether she could have been having an affair with the killer, and then things soured, so he killed her.

  • knotty1966

    I wouldn't clap for 24 years. He looks in his 30's so in his mid 50's he'll be a free man!

    Hmm, he might have hit her with the car. I'm not buying his story, he's a nut job, but the fractured pelvis is an indication of being run over by a vehicle and not of a beating. In fact there's another crime show on here where a fractured pelvis was used as evidence that a suspect had run over the victim and had not just beaten her. I think he hit her, freaked out and threw what he thought was her dead body in the trunk and when she came out swinging from the trunk he stabbed and beat her to death.

    This is such a docile investigation.! Why should we get a "likely scenario" -- to crown the impotent investigators and forget the tears of the victim ! When he could use force, which was apparent (we do not need the investigation to tell us), why the law enforcement could not use force to get the truth. So sickening..this investigation ! To the victim and her parents: sorry, forgive -- us, ..people and the sickening system !

    It's so frustrating hearing how soft and polite they talk to these murderers in Australia...the cop goes " I don't want to shock you or horrify you when I show you these pictures" what?!?!?! Who gives a flying eff about shocking him he is the one who killed her. And why does Australia keep giving these murderers only 24 years? They don't have sentences with 50 years to life over there?

    You say that justice has been done. What a load of crap! You bleeding heart liberal piles of trash sicken me. This evil jackal cold bloodedly murdered a young woman for no reason and he gets a lousy prison sentence. You spineless bastards should have sentenced him to death. His victim received the death penalty with no moment of restraint or compassion from her executioner. Put this filth to death.

    Violent felons need to be put away together so they only have each other to prey upon. People that commit these violent crimes do not change unless forced to change. The recidivism rate for violent felons is around 90% ? There’s centuries of proof that they will continue committing violence until imprisoned or they’re dead.

    Australia seems like the place to go if you want to kill someone. The sentences are incredibly light and disproportionate to the crime itself. I've seen Australian sentences for murder ranging from less than 10 years to barely over 25 years. Is the value of a human life in that country so small?

    I wonder did she trigger some jealous woman as they stated that she had multiple love affairs on the island. She's young and pretty, but still a newcomer/outsider. Someone may have felt she took too many liberties and been jealous. She was also a manager at her job. Could someone have been jealous of her career success on the island and felt that she wasn't worthy of favor? This is so sad.

    If I had heard that scream, I'd call the cops and then start running a great circle. At least there'd be a chance I'd run near the commotion and perhaps could come to her aid. I couldnt just sit there.

    Although the killer has been found but don't say that justice has been done. He would've have been made to face the same fate and live the same pain 😔 that the innocent murdered soul lived. How on earth could you impose your will on an individual and deny them space to have their own? Dealing with one such mind set would set an example for the rest of the assholes who take an innocent life away 😭 merely because the opponent has disagreed. But then comes the rules and procedures ......
