Surely they can asses the sneakered foot and decide how it was removed from her leg? i mean we can put a rocket into space and land a capsule on the Moon and we can't tell how she came to have a missing foot?
Google “what happens to a dead body in the sea over a long period”, that might explain it to you. It was just fortunate that the shoe must have been tied on tightly and was of sufficient good quality to survive itself. And not be palatable to sea creatures. The other shoe might be out there too, as yet undiscovered.

What about it?
i think there was some debate on that theory (which is spot on the mark I think)
because there should be cctv film of her departing from home to go for a run but doesn't seem to be any.
unconfirmed info here.
The obvious scenario turns out mysterious due to the lack of film.
I was just asking how you think that occurred ?

There was not CCTV because the feds confiscated it a day or so earlier.

Off you go, Anthony ... move far, far away and start somewhere afresh. You have a skill; put it to good use. Leave your stepson with his father.

A formal inquest will be held in September ... what would happen if she reappeared (living) after that concluded?

Although not in Australia, this is a case of where someone who was thought to be dead, returned:

If she modelled her Ponzi scheme on Bernie Madoff, then perhaps she thought that she would be spending the rest of her life in jail like him.

I read a comment somewhere from someone who suggested that Melissa may have had someone on the inside helping her out ... someone who planted the toothbrush with "her" DNA on it (which then matched "her" foot), and was instrumental in taking those cameras away.

I really hope this one will be solved in my lifetime.

Chances extremely low. Also, they had a decomposed foot - plenty of DNA. Either deceased or very likely living without a foot.

I think they determined the foot/shoe had been in the sea for a long time, so I'd say dead without a foot. Without a lot more too.
Sorry wasn't clear, there is almost no chance she is alive. Meant if she is alive, that is her foot.

What was in question was Ms Caddick was not picked up on any other CCTV footage around the area. Not seen any real discussion by the investigating authorities since very early on.
yeah thats it thanks, thats what I meant a few posts back... in a Street full of millionaires homes no security camera's - seems odd. what is the truth here - why no cctv from other cameras ?

Wouldn't have thought it's that unusual. Those home security camera's are ordinarily fixed on the homes. They can also often be just for show.

ok thanks I'm not familiar with extremely wealthy suburbs sorry.
Wondering if detectives reenacted the path she may have taken from the home to the cliffs or other "escape paths" and check for cctv

Nor am I for the most part. Bit more familiar with the CCTV setups though.

There absolutely will have been some pointed out to the entrances of drive ways - I think that's where the intrigue comes from. You'd expect to have seen her in at least some of those.

Questions about CCTV and the initial appeal of a missing person report and public appeal. As ASIC agents and the Australian Federal Police had removed all the computers and hard drive the day before her disappearance from Melissa Caddick and Anthony Koletti’s home were the Caddick’s CCTV would of usually been recorded to, and as it was sometime before Anthony Koletti reported her missing (30 hours).

What was time frame on the press conference on the Police appeal for Information?

How long do CCTV keep records of recordings for?

As I guess the neighbours would not of known of her disappearance for at least some days after the 12 November 2020, just thinking was the delay a fact in the review of other residents review of CCTV footage.

I am finding the podcast Liar Liar very interesting, how she got away with for so long is amazing maybe her clients failed by not doing due diligence with not checking her financial license and following up with CommSec?
