realise its not really classified as a crime but in my mind it is

anyone watch this on Sunday Night? its up here http://au.news.yahoo.com/sunday-nig...d4/phoebes-mystery-death/aunews_sunday_night/

I am surprised at the lack of social discussion on this as to me it does not seem like a suicide and in this day and age you would think this would spark lots of discussion on the net, the documentary made many good points for it being murder over suicide and when you break down the facts its hard to argue with them.

What I want to know is considering they showed video footage of her in her apartment lobby the day she died then surely the police have access to footage from later that night when she supposedly went up to the garbage disposal and committed suicide, if this was the case you would think it would have been released.

The Doco showed how hard it was for a sober person to even maneuver themselves into the disposal, so how can we expect an intoxicated and under the influence of sleeping pills person to be able to do it and why would they even go to the trouble of going through a garbage disposal, a balcony is 10 feet away and guaranteed death, we also have the case of the blades being turned back on, her boyfriend being in possession of her phone when she sent her last strange text message to family members, not to mention her boyfriends parents being the one who tried to stop the doco even going ahead.

Channel 7 sure did a good job of making the boyfriend guilty as hell without insinuating anything. I mean sure, he sounds as guilty as anything so it wasn't hard, but they are experts at that by now.

The Age ran a piece on this ages ago, and no doubt Ch7 covered off pretty similar stuff. From memory her Dad has done most of the legwork in highlighting the inadequacies of the police work? The conclusion to be drawn from the piece in The Age was that it was almost impossible for this to be considered a suicide.

Hope the case gets reopened. From memory, at face value it warranted further investigation.

Twarby are you still following the case?

The boyfriend did not have a good day in front of the inquest yesterday by the looks of this.

Answering questions about Phoebe’s phone that was supposed to be getting repaired and ringing her dad straight after he rang her. Information he answered to the inquest about this were not consistent with police notes.

Therefore it would be even harder to push someone down. Unless of course that person was either already deceased or very heavily unconscious. What did the autopsy say as to the cause of death?

Surprised there aren't more loose parallels being drawn between this and the Gable Tostee thing. Both very unfortunate accidents IMO.

Thought the mother's reaction of "I'm not surprised" was very interesting, too. Was she "not surprised" her daughter ended up this way because of how she was, or "not surprised" her daughter ended up this way because of the boyfriend?

Wonder why 60 Minutes decided to rehash this story tonight? If anything, their coverage of it was less detailed than the original on Ch7
The Phoebes Fall podcast from The Age. Last episode just released this week, apparently the Age decided to revisit the case because of a Facebook post from the boyfriends sister saying she hoped the truth would come out one day.
