I want to put this question out for public debate since the topic is so very important to the whole alibi story.
Shane Mitchell told the court at his brothers trial that he (Luke) may have been in the house at the time Jodi Jones was murdered but that he didn't see or hear him.
Corinne Mitchell for her part tells of arriving home from work that afternoon about 5.15pm to find Luke prancing about the kitchen with some broccoli in hand. She also insists that Luke had prepared the meal and in fact burned the chicken pie he was cooking. She added that brother Shane had come down for his tea before taking it back up to his bedroom to eat.
Now, in the latest instalment to this evolving story, it was stated in the Wrongly Accused Person forum a few days ago that Shane had stated that he could not remember seeing Luke. I will hasten to add that this post has now been removed for obvious reasons. It seems that Shane is indeed the weak link in this case and that any mention of him on the WAP forum is instantly removed.
Memory and the ability to remember events was a noticeable problem for Shane Mitchell at his brothers trial. At the time he put this down to drug abuse.
Could there in fact be a more sinister reason?
Yes, I remember seeing that post, I believe it was made by Sandra Lean in one of her daily rambling presentations which are supposed to convince people that Mitchell is somehow innocent. She is noted for removing content as is her co director Billy Middleton who is quite adept at manipulating posts when it suits.
I have always said that two boys could not have been alone in such a small property for any length of time without them being aware of each other. We are told that Luke Mitchell burned a pie yet Shane was seemingly oblivious to this as he sat looking at porn in his bedroom with, as we were told, one ear listening for anyone coming into the house. If he thought he was alone was he not suspicious of the burning smell?
Who did he think made the tea, if there ever was a tea made by anyone except of course Corinne Mitchell herself.
A quite implausible series of events, no wonder the jury didn't believe Shane or Corinne.
