Qld police confident of arresting killer

Police are interviewing a number of witnesses in the homicide case of Allison Baden-Clay and won’t say whether they are treating her husband as a suspect.

Police on Tuesday confirmed a body found by a creek in Brisbane’s west was that of the 43-year-old Brookfield mum, who had been missing for 12 days.

Detective-Superintendent mark Ainsworth says police are interviewing a number of witnesses in the homicide case.

However, he won’t comment on whether her husband, Gerard Baden-Clay, is a suspect.

‘We are not going to leave a stone unturned,’ he told reporters in Brisbane on Wednesday.

‘We are putting in the hours.

‘We do have a level of confidence that we will arrest the person responsible for Allison’s death.’

The lawyer for mr Baden-Clay, Darren Mahony, says his client is devastated and focusing on the welfare of his three young daughters.

He said mr Baden-Clay was taking legal advice on his interactions with police and the media.

‘Given the intense public interest in the matter no doubt prudent people would understand the reasonableness of seeking such advice,’ mr Mahony said.

Police are appealing for anyone who used the roundabout connecting Moggill Road and Brookfield Road between 11pm (AEST) on April 19 and 4am (AEST) on April 20 to come forward.

They might have information police need to solve the case.

Ms Baden-Clay was reported missing by her husband early on April 20.

He told police he last saw her about 10pm (AEST) the night before when she left to go for a run.

Her disappearance sparked a major missing persons search in bushland and suburbs surrounding Brookfield.

Supt Ainsworth said police have now scaled back searches around the area where the body was found, but 25 detectives remain in the area chasing other leads.

He said a mobile phone SIM card found near where the body was located has been ruled out as a clue in her death.
