CJRC researchers Associate Professor Mark Lauchs and Dr Claire Ferguson from the School of Justice, Faculty of Law, have spoken to ABC radio this morning about the Gable Tostee murder trial which finished in the Brisbane Supreme Court yesterday.
Mr Tostee was found not guilty of the murder or manslaughter of Warriena Wright, a visiting tourist from New Zealand whom he met through the dating app Tinder. Ms Wright fell to her death from Tostee’s Gold Coast apartment balcony in 2014.
In the interview, Associate Professor Mark Lauchs explains how he is surprised that the Director of Public Prosecutions pursued the murder charge with the evidence that was available in this case.
Forensic criminologist Dr Claire Ferguson, who specialises in offender behaviour in homicide cases, discusses her opinion of Tostee’s behaviour after the incident.
