I have to say, I hadn't realised they had posed for pictures.

Thatís because he didnít as is obvious from the photographs. A reporter did tell Jodiís mother that Luke had left flowers at the grave, an action that can only have been contrived to cause hurt and anger.

It wasn't the reporters actions that caused hurt and anger. Lukes arrogance and insensitivity by leaving the flowers was what caused the hurt and anger. His mother as an adult should've known this but obviously didn't care.

He really was damned if he did and damned if he didnít, wasnít he?

What is arrogant about leaving flowers? He respected the familyís wishes by not going to the funeral, and remember at that point, according to the law, he was innocent of any crime. The damage that that request by the family must have done to this child in his own community is incalculable. It does however show the familyís attitude to Luke at the time and how easy it must have been for the police to manipulate their recollections from what they said in their first statements to what they eventually said in court.

I must agree with Mrs S. Corinne and Luke went to Jodi's grave after the funeral knowing full well that the media would be lurking. They didn't have to do that, they could have gone quietly later and paid their respects if that was what they truly intended.

The interview with Sky News' James Matthews whom Corinne referred to as, "that horrible little man" in the latest Ch5 documentary sort of backfired on Corinne too. She should have known better.

What about the damage Luke did to the family by murdering Jodi?  You're obviously certain he's 100% innocent.  What makes you so sure?  I'd love to know.

And what makes you  so sure he's guilty? The case doesn't seem at all clear cut to me.

Leaving flowers at his girlfriend's grave?  What on earth is arrogant and insensitive about that ?

If you are the main suspect in her murder it is.

I am not 100% sure about his guilt or innocence and have said as much, therefore I don't make categoric statements such as
" The damage that that request by the family must have done to this child in his own community is incalculable".  If he is indeed guilty then why should the family be made to feel guilty about asking their child's murderer to stay away from the graveside?

So you suspect your loved one was murdered by their partner and you are quite OK with them attending the funeral or graveside to leave flowers are you?

He was unable to attend murdered Jodi's funeral for two reasons
  • his presence was not wanted and he had been asked to stay away
  • he was unable to attend because the timing would have clashed with his Sky news interview
He obviously had no intention of being left out of his big day and went to extraordinary lengths to make sure that the day of Jodi being left to rest was not about her ... it was all about him ... and he didn't give a fig about who he offended in the process

My opinion then and now is that shows a particular and peculiar mindset as far as convicted murderers are concerned.

For example Tobin kept a low profile and went to great lengths to hide his crimes and victims even to the extent of taking Vicky Hamilton's remains with him when he moved house and country.

Jodi's remains were exhibited and left on display and Mitchell was present (which was no accident) to observe her family when they saw the mess in which she had been left.

I think it amounted to sheer exhibitionism from which I think his mother should have attempted to dissuade him for all sorts of reasons rather than taking an active part.

What time did Corrine and Luke go to the graveyard?

Do the press usually mooch around graveyards once funerals are over?

Good question.  Who took the photos if not the press, and who tipped them off that Luke and his mum were there...?

The Press took the photos.  Anybody with a scintilla of commonsense would have scarpered the moment they saw reporters in the graveyard but not Corinne. They were loving it!
