Facebook need to pull their heads in IMHO, don’t they have the tech to sniff out fake profiles and dodgy content? Or perhaps they’re too busy censoring elected politicians....

What a cesspool.
if you’re still on Facebook, ween yourself off it.
Too busy counting the money.

And why would anyone think Facebook would take responsibility for something put on their sites when they don't charge you for the pleasure of using Facebook. Nothing in this life is free! And the free use of Facebook is very costly indeed.

All they are about is using your statistics to sell marketing tags. Each hit on Facebook is worth
thousands in marketing dollars.

does the media using “little cleo” make anyone else cringe or am I being sensitive. Just hate how much they’re loving milking this story. Amazing result for the family, so happy for them but I’ve heard enough.
Strange isn't it. We all know sweet Cleo was four years old. What are media trying to imply.... that Cleo's size made a difference. Does that imply if say a 10yo child was involved would they then say .... big Betty.

From what we know about him following Ellie and family on FB, and the suspicion the police had about a stalker (fingerprinting the fence, windows, etc) he probably followed them on their trip.
They would have gone through all messages sent to them. I'd be very surprised if he hadn't sent the family messages. He was following multiple families. Has he done this before, perhaps photographed them as part of his "family"

All of his facebook accounts were part of an eleborate setup to make him out to seem as if he is a genuine person. This has been planned for many years. Building his fortress to protect himself when he did what he always wanted to do. He's done it online. We know that many high profile people, or people in support services, in the church that do this to present themselves as an upstanding citizen.

$250k, ha ha, what a joke...!

I'd get in front of this and counter with - $5 Million and the family will guarantee an exclusive interview sometime in the next 24 months - with a $2 Million non-fundable deposit, required upon signing of the agreement, to be placed in a trust fund for the girls future schooling..?

Fcuk the media..! - that should at least slow down some related offers for a while...
There's nothing like the money in TV that there used to be. $250k is probably an exaggeration.

Given it appears he set up this bedroom with Frozen merchandise. I worry that if Cleo is confronted with more of Frozen merchandise she will suffer flashbacks to her ordeal. Mum was using a Frozen backpack today.
Also a possibility that the room we see with all the Bratzs dolls in it, may not be the room the police found her locked in. It probably wasn't now I'm thinking about it a bit more, the dolls room looks so well set up and perfectly arranged, he might have chucked a fit if it was made untidy.

The house was locked but the room she was in wasn't , if I am not mistaken.

My understanding was that she was locked in a room. That does seem to make more sense to me because unless he had every window boarded up he was risking her finding a way out.
Yer it does make sense, just cant see anywhere where it says the room she was in was locked. Just says Police broke into the locked house.

You might be right, I can't find the reference now where it was said the room was also locked and they used a pinch bar on it. I might have got it from Channel 7 ...

In one of those images I am sure there is part of a bed shown at bottom of pic.
This photo shows a single black bed frame that is now possibly the same on on its side in his backyard. Possibly she was just on a mattress on a rug.

Thankfully I was possibly only close on the first part of my scenario
The thief part, according to 7news reports on what WAPOL told them.

'"Police believe he was at the blowholes campsite on October 16 to commit small-time theft"'
(at the 3:45 mark of the below)


'Dashcam shows DRAMATIC moment Cleo Smith’s alleged abductor arrested | 7NEWS
150,847 views • Nov 5, 2021 • The dramatic moment a Western Australian man was arrested over allegedly abducting four-year-old girl Cleo Smith has been caught on camera. Terence Darrell Kelly was arrested late on Tuesday night, about an hour before detectives found Cleo locked inside a Carnarvon home. CCTV and dashcam on a taxi caught the moment the 36-year-old was pulled over by officers while driving, pinned to the ground and arrested.'

'"Police believe he was at the blowholes campsite on October 16 to commit small-time theft"'
interesting...my original profile is holding so far...opportunist not planned.

was this petty theft trip a regular thing?

and was he stealing just cash/mobiles, or also the odd girls knickers etc.?

I wonder how many people came forward to say they had things stolen in the past?

Bottom of pic. Is that a bed? What is the bright light at bottom of right side bookcase. Could that be a video camera lens?

It appears to me to be higher than floor level that's what makes me thinks it's a bed

Are these photos supposedly from his doll room all the same room? Different shelving setups. Possibly photos taken around the room of different walls.

And by any means necessary. Wouldn't rule out having them using Stingray tech. News LTD will often pull out a small quote and insert it as a headline to trick readers into thinking it's something legit, but in reality just someone's theory or opinion.
What does an IMSI catcher ‘Stingray’ have to do with click bait titles?? Of course they used it (you’d think) of course they click bait.
