    I had to laugh at the first eposide where she explained his drug possesion - he was holding the drugs and money for a friend??!! That's like me trying to tell my mum I wasn't smoking in my room when I was 14 when she walked in, smelt the smoke and saw the cigarette in my hand! The whole interview with her was literally 'Simon Said' - all her answers were - 'Simon said..........he was defending himself' (against police officer), 'Simon said...............the drugs weren't his'. She just regurgitated his p!ss poor explanations for all the damning evidence that was stacked up against him (which is probably a sure sign he is dominating and controlling her like he did Lisa).

    I saw that website too.


    I'm a bit concerned about this bit though, under the 'Creating a false memory' section of their website:

    Eyewitnesses play a key role in police investigations. But how likely is it that they remember everything correctly? Today the police place far too much emphasis on eyewitness accounts, according to experts.

    Those who have witnessed a crime would do best not to tell anyone about it.



    Edited to add: I noticed that when they copied the quote, but snipped it before this section:
    Farhan Sarwar's studies show that eyewitnesses are particularly bad at remembering details, such as what the perpetrator was wearing or what weapon was used.

    On the other hand, they are better at recalling the key events.
    From what I've read, Josh Rathmell was able to recall what Simon was wearing, which added to his overall reliability as a witness.

You could see that she was scared of his reaction of her not coming to court (although the money from the interview was more appealing than pleasing him - she probably feels safe with him behind bars!).
    I think that the version supplied to her is so unbelievable and stretched... I don't think it could be further from the truth. I wasn't there of course.. But really?

    I missed the interviews, so am going off others comments.
    Did she really question how Simon could have picked up Lisa? And Lisa was 50 kgs, is that correct?
    So after I had my first DD and was at my thinnest (around 48kg, and dreadfully underweight) and could lift well above my weight, then how did I do that? How about a year later when I'd lifted several girls who had passed out drunk ( so dead weights) in the toilets where I was doing security, who were taller and a good 10-15 kgs heavier than me? I hadn't done weights, and hadn't rowed in years so no longer had the strength I once had.

    I seriously can't believe she thinks that is a valid argument! He could EASILY lift Lisa. Add in what PP's have said about adrenalin, and Simon could have lifted someone twice her weight.

    It is correct, they're not saying never tell anyone what you saw, they are talking about before you make a statement. If you see something, best to write down what you saw before speaking to anyone, it's still not very reliable, but better than calling someone and saying "Omg I just saw..." as that will change your memory of what happened.

    I just can't understand how there would be any denial of what he did. If he didn't want her to leave and brought her back in (to be quiet) and then he calmly made a drink, why then would she even jump over the balcony, if she were that afraid of him and did jump over the balcony, it's still his fault as far as i'm concerned. It just doesn't make sense that if he was calm, she'd jump off the balcony. He also could have just let her freaking leave and go back to Canada, her bags were already packed. Also thought it interesting that he was watching porn, (how very catholic of him) when he preaches at how 'godly' he is, I don't think anyone is buying that buddy. Sick individual and such a sad and devastating loss for the Harnum family

    I read the judge's findings. A long read but well worth it. A despicable man, a despicable act and he is right where he should be. Let's hope he gets a taste of his own violent medicine. As for his current gf, I hope she wakes up to herself and gets some therapy. Whether she believes him or she is just seeking her 5 minutes of fame both are unhealthy ways of thinking, acting, behaving. 26 years is not enough for taking a life but i'm glad it wasn't some paltry sentence.

    Out of curiosity, what did Simon Gittany do for work? It kept coming up that he was 'setting up a business' but he obviously made money in other ways.
