I think if Parkes' account is accurate, or broadly, accurate, we have to assume that Parry was in a state of mental turmoil when he headed over to the garage, as the enormity of what he'd...

Hi AS,

According to Parry he arrived at the Brine residence at about 5:30pm; Harold Denison arrived after Parry, at 6:00pm.

Clearly then, Parry stayed for a considerable period. However, I think...

Hi AS,

That's an interesting question, and difficult to answer.

Firstly, I don't think Wallace could have acted alone: Wildman's evidence suggests that he didn't have nearly enough time; and the...
