The police only really move on children abductions or a rape murder of a women seem to drag the ball and chain on some , recently there was a bloke murdered by six people and abducted from his home took 6 months to break that one downYeah just watching his dad on the ABC then. Pretty heartbreaking. Looks a normal, stoic, middle-class guy and him breaking down was hard to watch.
It seems he was pretty close to his hostel – a 15 minute walk – and he didn't seem to be that drunk. It's a shame he didn't make friends at the hostel. I've been in these situations and I think it's why Chris Brahney/Grace Millane/these cases get me interested and invested. I know how fun it is to meet new people, to go out, that buzz of flying over a brand new country and seeing the trees and paths beneath you fly. It coming just after uni or just before it adds to that robbed feeling.
I don't know why they're only trying to access the Whatsapp now. His phone was in a new location at 12.20am I think. I'd most likely say it was thrown out of a car or something but still. Shouldn't this be done as soon as possible?
It's just sad. Poor young bloke. Happy, bright looking man. Always sad.
His dad did well to get through the script, not sure I could have kept it together for as long as he did if it was my son. It was really hard to watch.Poor family, it was heartbreaking watching the dad speak to the media today.
What's the situation with Whatsapp? the cops are trying to access his latest messages.
If they knew who the other person was and he's been checked out, imo his face probably should have been blurred. A lot of pressure just went on him with this CCTV, could be by design.Other guy checked out or is unknown?
Would be pretty insane if a backpacker killed another one. Especially since Theo was walking home alone. It’s not like they were together, pissed, and they’ve gotten into an argument.
Then again... maybe it’s simply the best photo they have?
I used to work in a bottle shop that was a similar size and layout by the looks. There can be lots of blind spots and most cameras only get people from angles and side on or else top down.
That, or they want to possibly see if anyone saw them at the club or hostel. Someone could potentially say they saw an argument or the other guy had a reputation.
Doubt it tho. Seems two lads just getting on the piss.

It's difficult to say since the footage has been cut. We don't see if they paid or not. I am assuming they paid because no one came of the store to chase them or anything.Did that other kid knock it off? He was carrying it out the door, Theo was a couple of steps behind.
Searchers are looking around the Cape Byron Lighthouse where his phone last pinged but its a fifty minute walk from the Cheeky Monkey. Looks like a good high place to throw a phone over, a body going over might be harder there's meshed in safety rails right around from what I can see.If he'd fallen into the water you'd think a body would have shown up. If he'd gone for a late night swim, you'd think his clothes at the very least would have been found.
