Police today vowed to leave no stone unturned in their hunt to catch the killer of a Brookfield Mum.

The search for evidence at the scene where Allison Baden-Clay’s body was found, has been scaled back as police wait for the results of forensic tests.

Naomi Lynch reports.


The search at Kholo Creek and the nearby scout camp has ceased with very little police presence seen at all in the Brookfield area.

Police are still hoping to recover Allison’s phone after it was declared a sim card found near the body was not connected to the investigation.

Detective Superintendent Mark Ainsworth says they are confident they will find her killer.

Det Supt Mark Ainsworth, Regional Crime Co-ordinator: “We’re not going to leave a stone unturned. We’re putting in the hours. We are looking at every facet of police resources and investigations we can use. And we will continue and we do have a level of confidence that we will arrest the person responsible for Allison’s death.”

Police were today out door knocking in Brookfield in a bid to piece together any new information on Allison’s disappearance.

She was last seen alive almost two weeks ago.

Family members today collected flowers of sympathy placed outside the Baden-Clay home.

Husband, Gerard Baden-Clay says he is devastated and wants to try and keep some degree of stability for his daughters.

He yesterday hired a second legal representative and he said any prudent person would do the same.

The past 13 days have been traumatic and devastating for the local Brookfield community. No matter what unfolds, it will be a long time before residents, friends and family can return to everyday life.
