How long more will the public have to wait for the police to make an arrest over the brutal killing of Allison Baden-Clay?
Time is creeping on and the police have assured the people of Brisbane's western suburbs there is no crazed killer on the loose ready to attack again.
If that is true, they must have their quarry well and truly within their sights and must be superbly confident the killer will not strike again.
Speculation remains at fever pitch across southeast Queensland as to the identity of the killer.
There is even a suggestion in legal circles that up to 5 people may be under investigation over the murder, including accessories after the fact. Presumably, if that is right, the police will ultimately make simultaneous arrests , which would make a multi-pronged interviewing process incredibly demanding on the police as well as putting intense pressure on those in custody to confess to what they know.
It seems the police are leaving no stone unturned in this case with phone taps, vehicle tracking devices and seizure of medical and computer records no doubt just the tip of the iceberg, as the net closes on the killer who will have more explaining to do than Peter Slipper and Craig Thomson combined.
This is shaping up as the murder trial to end all trials in Queensland with justice for Allison Baden-Clay hopefully not far away.
