    Default Gable Totsee murder trial

    Is anyone following this? The guy sounds like a douche, but I'm failing to see how his actions equate to murder. Very bizarre.

    I listened to the audio. She sounds so completely out of it, who knows what was happening. Why was the whole night recorded?

    I have not done any in-depth reading about this case, however I do find it intriguing (and sad of course).

    My knowledge is snippets of what the media has reported - they met on Tinder, spent the night together, things turned sour between them and she tried to escape by climbing down the balcony, which resulted in her falling to her death.

    Yes! I was curious about this too. It's not normal to record audio like that.

    Ooh, I'm obsessed with this case!

    I think he will walk. He's an absolute douche but it's a big stretch to prove that he's responsible for her death.

    I agree, I'd love to know how he conveniently has three hours of audio recorded too.

    It's all very, very sad.

    Its a hard one. I have read bits and pieces but I don't quite know how he will be found guilty. Even his behaviour after it happened could be explained as shock.

    So I don't know how I feel about it. It's just sad.

    Very strange. Perhaps it was a voyeurism thing, perhaps as things went pear-shaped he thought he'd protect himself?

    If he's found not guilty of murder could he face a lesser charge e.g manslaughter?

    I think at the very most, it's deprivation of liberty or a breach of duty of care. But even then, I don't think it was foreseeable that she would attempt to climb down from a 14th story apartment.

    I've been following this too.

    Agree that he seems like a total douche! I don't understand how shutting someone who has threatened and been violent to you on your balcony means you are guilty of murder? Surely it's a reasonable assumption that someone will not try to climb down from a 14th story balcony?

    I don't know what to make of it. I was a bit freaked out by the photos that's have been all over the news of her half dangling off the balcony. Then DH said it was a reenactment photo. Why they didn't say that on the news really annoyed me. Here I was thinking that his downstairs neighbor had poor taste or conveniently had a security camera pointed at his balcony, 13 floors up.

    They're trying to prove that him locking her on his balcony led to her death. I mean it did, but is it his fault? How long had she been out there before she climbed over the balcony? Did she have a phone and means of contacting someone for help? It's all weird. Mind you, I'd probably be terrified if I'd gone home with a strange bloke only to have him lock me on his balcony. I'd probably just want to get the hell away from him!
