Police are still investigating how Allison Baden-Clay met her fate.
The focus is on a roundabout in suburban Kenmore and the route leading to where the mother of three’s body was found 11 days ago.
Tess Lawrence reports.
Priscilla Dickie, Mother: Our lives will never be the same. We must, must find her.”
Despite emotional appeals by the family, the body of Allison Baden-Clay was found washed up on a secluded creek bed near Anstead 11 days after her disappearance on the 19th of April.
The site is about 10 kilometres from the family home in Brookfield, well outside the area where dozens of SES volunteers and police scoured bushland for clues.
News of her death shocked the small close knit community.
Jeffrey Row, Brookfield Resident: “It constantly reminds me of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. So there’s a lot of supposition that there’s one party responsible for it.”
Joe Kenny, Brookfield Resident: “Confusion, gossip, speculation, consideration.”
Phil Hancock, Brookfield General Store Worker: “Everyone’s a little on edge, but, we’re still trying to get on with our lives.”
Police are still appealing to the public for information that may help solve what is now a homicide case.
They’ve re traced the route from the family home at Brookfield to Kholo Creek crossing about 10 kilometres away. However, police are still focusing on this roundabout at Kenmore as an important location for this investigation.”
Last night police stationed themselves at the roundabout for the second time asking motorists if they saw anything relevant between 11:30pm and 4am on the night of Allison’s disappearance.
Earlier in the investigation they released shots of two family four wheel drives.
Police are awaiting to hear the results of a toxicology report from her autopsy.
For now on the day Allison Baden-Clay was laid to rest there are many questions that remain unanswered.
