    GERARD Baden-Clay is expected to be a protected prisoner at Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre, requiring 24-hour observation, seven days a week.

    Corrective Services confirmed the 41-year-old would most probably be kept separate from other prisoners and remain in the medical unit until later this week.

    Then another assessment of his mental health could be undertaken following his failed bail bid.

    It's understood a follow-up examination is necessary because of the knowledge he could potentially remain on remand for years.

    A protected prisoner is someone who has been assessed "as not being able to cope with mainstream prison", a QCS spokesman said.

    Baden-Clay's day will comprise waking by 6.30am to be ready for a head count at 6.45am to 7am via closed-circuit television cameras before receiving breakfast.


    Visiting times are between 9am and 11.15am or 1.15pm and 3.30pm, lunch is at 11.30am and dinner at 4.30pm before washdown at 6pm and lockdown at 6.30pm.

    Baden-Clay will be subjected to several musters and head counts each day, but all of them will be via CCTV.

    He is due to reappear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 9, but the charges must proceed through committal to be dealt with in the Supreme Court.

    "At the committal mention, the matter must proceed as a committal hearing unless the defence lawyers advise the court that application will be made to cross examine witnesses," the court documents state.

    AN APPARENT midnight call between the phones of accused killer Gerard Baden-Clay and his father, Nigel, on the night his wife Allison went missing was discovered only at the last minute before his Supreme Court bail hearing.

    Explosive allegations from prosecutors opposing bail included a claim Baden-Clay's iPhone was used to call his father around 12.30am on Friday, April 20. The alleged 1min 23sec call used FaceTime, which allows users to see each other while talking, and came about seven hours before Baden-Clay reported his wife missing.

    Prosecutor Danny Boyle told the court on Friday that the forensic examination of Baden-Clay's phone had only come back a day earlier.

    Evidence of the FaceTime call "seems to be contrary to being asleep from 10pm to 6am", Mr Boyle said.


    It contradicted Baden-Clay's alleged account to police of going to bed hours before the call and waking at 6am to find his wife missing.

    Evidence showed that his phone was connected to a charger at 1.48am on April 20.

    Previously secret details of the police case, including alleged motives of love and money, were revealed during Baden-Clay's failed bid to gain bail. A packed courtroom heard allegations the real estate agent was involved in an ongoing affair with former staffer Toni McHugh and had promised in an early April email that he would leave his wife by July 1.



    The deadline would have been Mrs Baden-Clay's 44th birthday.

    Police allege that, on April 20, the day Mrs Baden-Clay was reported missing, the two women were due to attend the same real estate conference.

    In further claims, Baden-Clay was alleged to have phoned insurers about his wife's life insurance policy on April 12 and Google-searched the American term "taking the Fifth" about the right to remain silent on April 18. He allegedly Googled "self-incrimination" at 7.09am on April 20, just minutes before calling police.

    Prosecutors and police painted a picture of severe money troubles, with alleged debts of more than $1 million.

    And Allison Baden-Clay's two life insurance policies and superannuation fund would have provided a potential windfall of $967,000.

    Baden-Clay was alleged to have called the insurance company shortly after a body was found at Kholo Creek but before it was identified.

    Defence counsel Peter Davis, SC, argued that the case was highly circumstantial, with no evidence of the cause, location, time nor date of death.

    There was also no evidence of Baden-Clay nor any vehicle leaving the family home on the key night nor that Baden-Clay was near where his wife's body was found.

    Mr Davis disputed a police claim that Mrs Baden-Clay's blood was found in the boot of one of their cars, saying that conflicted with post mortem examination evidence her only injury was a chipped tooth.

    Wow, what does one say to all that eagleboy?
    Did he really think that he would get away with it?
    I wonder how this is affecting the "other woman/women".. the guilt they feel for their part must be huge.
    So much evidence against him it seems.

    THE family of Gerard Baden-Clay have visited him for the first time since he was charged with the murder of his wife Allison.

    Baden-Clay's father Nigel and sister Olivia Walton had a non-contact visit yesterday morning with the 41-year-old accused murderer at Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre in Wacol.

    They were separated by a glass wall.

    Queensland Corrective Services confirmed their meeting lasted two hours - from 9am to 11am - and it was the first time anybody had been to see Baden-Clay since his arrest almost two weeks ago, except for his lawyer, Darren Mahony.

    Baden-Clay lost his bid for bail last week after the judge ruled him a flight risk.

    DRAMATIC details have emerged in the murder case against Gerard Baden-Clay from affidavits relied on for his Supreme Court bail application.

    The affidavits handed to the court for his Friday bail application include details of text messages Baden-Clay allegedly sent to his wife Allison on the morning he reported her missing where he repeatedly asked where she was.

    According to the affidavit filed by police and referred to in court on Friday, at 6.20am on April 20, 2012, Gerard Baden-Clay sent a text message to his wife Allison's mobile phone saying: "Good morning! Hope you slept well? Where are you? None of the girls are up yet! Love G''.

    No reply was received from this text message, the court documents say.

    The police affidavit says at 6.41am on April 20, Gerard Baden Clay sent another text message to his wife Allison's mobile phone saying: "Al, getting concerned. Where are you? The app doesn't say either? ... I'm dressed and about to make lunches. Please just text me back or call! Love G''.

    Again there was no reply received from this text message.

    The documents also say the phone was allegedly used shortly after midnight to call his father's phone via a "face time'' call, which allows both parties to see each other and talk.

    In an affidavit dated June 21 lodged in the Supreme Court in support of his bail application, Baden Clay said he was not a flight or suicide risk.

    "There has never been any suggestion of flight,'' he said.

    "I have never considered it. I maintain my innocence and will be strenuously defending the charges.''

    Baden Clay said in the affidavit he also had "no intention of self harm".

    "I note that no attempts of self harm have been made by me despite the intense media scrutiny, and the report of me as a person of interest as early as 23 April 2012,'' he said in the affidavit.

    "Over the whole of the period from 20 April 2012 I have not seen or been told anything to suggest that the police were looking at anyone else other than myself as a principal suspect.''

    Baden-Clay, who was arrested on June 13, said the arrest occurred at his workplace when he was leaving to collect his children from school.

    Baden-Clay was refused bail on Friday after Justice David Boddice said, after taking all factors into account, he considered he was a flight risk.

    The documents reveal that several friends offered cash to the court as surety to help the 41-year-old get bail.

    Ashgrove resident Dr Ifor Thomas, who once worked as a missionary doctor in Nigeria, offered $5000 to help secure Baden-Clay's release.

    "I am aware of the intense media scrutiny in this matter,'' he wrote in his affidavit.

    "I provide this surety understanding that my offer to provide the surety could be publicised in the print and television media.''

    Peter and Tanya Cranna, of Grange, offered $50,000 surety.

    Mr Cranna is the director of finance and infrastructure for the Churches of Christ, Queensland and his wife is a Care Connect case manager.

    The Crannas said they offered the $50,000 knowing they would have to sell their house if Baden-Clay failed to appear.

    During Friday's bail hearing, prosecutor Danny Boyle claimed in the court Baden-Clay was more than $1 million in debt and stood to gain $967,000 from his wife's life insurance policies and superannuation fund.

    He alleged Baden-Clay told his mistress, Toni McHugh, he would leave his wife for her after he had "sorted out'' his financial situation.

    Police also allege Baden-Clay was having affairs with two other women - affairs Ms McHugh had not known about.

    Peter Davis, SC, for Baden-Clay, described the Crown case as "weak'', saying there had been no cause of death ascertained from the post-mortem examination, no evidence as to where she was killed, what date or time she was killed and no evidence to show he had left his home on the night she disappeared.

    The police affidavit said blood found in the rear of the car was tested and confirmed to be Allison's.

    But Mr Davis disputed this, saying police had only filed evidence of a luminol test to the court and not the result showing the blood belonged to Allison.

    He said it was "widely speculative and inaccurate".

    But Justice Boddice said police had filed a "statement that it is" her blood and that they were not required to present further evidence at this stage of the court process.

    GERARD Baden-Clay denied he's a flight or suicide risk despite being treated as the "principal suspect" in his wife's murder, in documents filed in his Supreme Court bail application.

    Affidavits and other paperwork lodged by his defence team last week contended the Crown's case against the 41-year-old was "entirely circumstantial" and there was "no evidence of the cause of death; the geographical location of the death; the time or date of the death; (or) any weapon used to cause the death" of Allison Baden-Clay.

    Baden-Clay said police applied to have him assessed by a psychiatrist for risk of self-harm after his car crashed in to pylons at Indooroopilly but he was released from hospital.

    Baden-Clay's defence barrister, Peter Davis, SC, said in his submission supporting Baden-Clay's bail application that "the Crown's case as presently explained rests largely on highly prejudicial evidence that lacks any probative value".

    Mr Davis also disputed police claims the accident at Indooroopilly was a bid to "mask previous injuries, or to cause self-injury" because his own doctor had already examined his client.

    He said: "The Crown's case at its highest" could be reduced to some scratches on Baden-Clay's face, which were shaving cuts, scratches on his torso, neck and palm of his hand and his mobile telephone being removed from the charger in the middle of night when he had apparently told police that he was asleep all night."

    Mr Davis said the post-mortem examination found no cause of death and revealed the only injury was a chipped tooth.

    During Friday's bail hearing, prosecutor Danny Boyle claimed Baden-Clay owed more than $1 million and stood to gain $967,000 from his wife's life insurance and super.

    Justice David Boddice rejected Mr Davis's argument, saying the circumstantial case had factors that "if accepted by a jury" would make a strong argument.

    "I do not accept the contention that the Crown case is a weak case," he said, denying bail.

    Baden-Clay is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 9.

    Default Baden-Clay's parents 'refused police requests'

    THE parents of Gerard Baden-Clay refused requests for further information and interviews during the massive effort to solve the death of his wife, Allison, police claim in court documents.

    The documents were filed during the recent Supreme Court bail application for the alleged murderer.

    Detective Sergeant Peter Roddick, from the Homicide Squad, detailed for the first time in the court documents that he was unable to get all the information wanted from the family.

    He said Baden-Clay and his father, Nigel, did not tell police of an alleged FaceTime call between their phones at 12.30am on Friday April 20, the night Allison vanished.

    "Nigel Baden-Clay has provided investigators with a brief statement in relation to the contact he had with Gerard Baden-Clay after 6.30am on Friday,'' Sgt Roddick said in an affidavit.

    "He has never made mention of receiving this FaceTime call. I have previously asked Nigel Baden-Clay for a further interview and statement to obtain further details relevant to the investigation; however, he has declined my requests.''

    Baden-Clay's mother, Elaine, also did not mention the FaceTime call and "she too has declined my requests'' for a further interview and statement, Sgt Roddick said.

    The affidavit details how police discovered evidence of the alleged 1min 23sec call after retrieving information from Baden-Clay's iPhone using a Cellebrite Universal Forensic Examination Device.

    That evidence showed that the phone had been used to make the FaceTime call that night. FaceTime allows users to see each other while talking and calls are not listed in conventional phone records, Sgt Roddick said.

    According to the affidavit, the police Electronic Evidence Examination Unit advised Sgt Roddick they had discovered the call only hours before Baden-Clay's scheduled bail hearing on Thursday June 21.

    Police said the FaceTime call corroborated previous analysis of Gerard Baden-Clay's iPhone which showed it had been attached to a charger at 1.48am the same day.

    "The FaceTime call provides proof that conscious activity occurred on that phone at 12.30am. This contact has never been acknowledged by either Gerard Baden-Clay or Nigel Baden-Clay,'' the affidavit said.

    "The evidence of this FaceTime call, coupled with the evidence of the time when the phone was attached to a charger, does demonstrate that Gerard Baden-Clay was awake at the time relevant to his wife's disappearance.''

    Gerard Baden-Clay's barrister, Peter Davis, SC, claimed the prosecution case was weak and built on circumstantial evidence. In his submission supporting Baden-Clay's bail application, Mr Davis said that the Crown's case rested "largely on highly prejudicial evidence that lacks any probative value''.

    He said that the Crown's case "at its highest'' could be reduced to some scratches on Baden-Clay's face, which were shaving cuts, scratches on his torso, neck and palm of his hand and his mobile telephone being removed from the charger in the middle of night when he had apparently told police that he was asleep all night.''

    Justice David Boddice rejected the bail application.

    GERARD Baden-Clay is giving up the lease on the Brookfield family home where his wife, Allison, was last seen alive.

    While the accused killer remains behind bars after last month's failed bail hearing, his parents Nigel and Elaine loaded up a trailer with goods, including their son's golf clubs, at the house yesterday.

    A removalist truck was also seen at the rented house and the owner confirmed the lease expired on Monday last week.

    "They sought a periodic lease thereafter,'' said the owner, who did not want to be named. "We've just been going from week to week.

    "They haven't given us a date, as of yet, and we are trying to be considerate of their circumstances.

    "But I understand Mr and Mrs Baden-Clay Senior are packing up with a view to moving from the house.''

    The same owners have a childcare centre next door and, when the Baden-Clays leave, the house may be used for training rooms rather than being rented out again, she said.

    Asked if she had concerns about how the property would be viewed because of its connection to the tragic case, she said: "I can't say how other people will view it. Certainly, for our own purposes, we'd be very happy to utilise the space.''

    Nigel Baden-Clay asked for privacy when approached as he packed up the home.

    "We're still grieving for our daughter-in-law,'' he said.

    Asked about police claims in court documents that he had not fully co-operated, he said: "We don't know what the police are saying because we don't read the papers.''

    His son had lived in the house with Allison and their three young daughters for the past six years and was paying $450 a week rent.

    Baden-Clay told police he last saw his wife watching The Footy Show in the home at 10pm on Thursday April 19, when he went to bed.

    Police allege he murdered his wife in the home or elsewhere and then dumped her body, which was found on the banks of Kholo Creek 11 days after she vanished.

    Bunches of flowers remained on the front fence of the property in the upmarket semi-rural suburb in Brisbane's outer west.

    Allison Baden-Clay would have celebrated her 44th birthday today.

    Wow, what do you think of that eagleboy?
    I couldn't believe it when i read whats ^^ up there about the parents of Bayden Clay.
    For what reason would they not mention the phone call to the police? And why would they decline interviews
    with the police unless they knew/know something.
    I sort of get that protection thing of parents to a child.
    He must have said something to his dad.
