The former beauty queen, Miss Brisbane 1993, married the man of her dreams, great-grandson of the founder of the Scouting Movement, Lord Baden-Powell. When they returned from their honeymoon, she was... More > a changed young woman. She had suffered severe side affects from Lariam, the anti-malarial drug. She never really recovered her mental health from that day. She had cyclical relapses of clinical depression, which began following the birth of her first baby. At first her husband was attentive and caring. Then the situation changed. One day, she went for her morning walk and never returned. A lone kayaker found her, lying on her side on the steep, slippery, muddy bank of Kholo Creek, where it adjoined the Brisbane River at Anstead. He might have got away with it, they might have presumed suicide; except for the forensic evidence that convicted him: three long, weeping, vertical gouges in his right cheek, where she clawed him with her fingernails in a desperate fight for her life.
