Just heard that Ewen Macdonald will be getting Legal Aid. Well I suppose it is to be expected that the Guy family would be unlikely to cough up for the court case, from the Dairy coffers! Or does it tell us more than this really and that The Family do not believe that he is innocent at all. If he is guilty - then I am fascinated as to why a man with a lovely wife and 4 delightful children, would risk it all? The psychology behind this murder will kepp Jie Public riveted for months to come. Watch this space!

Unfortunately " Herbert" these forums have had a person called Tambling G Davenport ex Ms Larking turn a terrible murder investigation (on a public platform) into a year long forum of her dislike against the Guy Family, with her circulating horrible rumors about the Guy family on this thread that she created, her hate against Police and her hate against her ex husband and his family. Not to mention also to continually repeat her own very narcissitic dysfunctional views on her life on this forum.

Because there is a wives and young children that are involved in the circumstances of this terrible murder I think it would be very prudent not to start a thread again on this very tragic murder nor about Ewen Mc Donald. Remember he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of Law
Speculation, making malicious innuendos and the spreading of vicious rumors gossip on public forums will not serve to support and help these innocent children nor the wives during this time.
If Ewen McDonald has qualified for legal aid .. so what ? It means that his own current personal finaces cannot support a privately funded legal representation for himself.

I agree with Forumreader. The Guy family has suffered enough. Whoever the murderer is either Ewen Macdonald or someone else, justice will be done. I think this matter should not be discussed any further ELSE you know WHO will be back.

I believe this man is innocent.
Got to feel sorry for him and his family.
There simply is not any solid evidence to say he is guilty.

Hope the trial ends quickly and he is a freed man.

You can believe what you like. But there's plenty of us looking at his motive, means and opportunity that feel otherwise. His torching and vandalizing the victims house, his hatred and disgusting graffiti and letters show a man whose behaviour was escalating out of control.

I partly agree with you but we still need to remember that there is more to the story than what we are being told by the media.

At the end of the day if he is guilty he will be judged&sentenced and if not then i hope they do find their guy.

Looks like he did it.
Hatred can totally change a man and the court hearings are pointing straight to him. Torching someones house and writing all the things on the walls indicate that his heart was full of hate. It is unbelievable that someone could do this to the brother of his wife, but still possible.

The NZ police has shown once again their inability to deal with complex criminal cases. It's just one more murder, they have approached like amateurs. Bane case was not a one-off it seems.

I hope Ewen did not murder Guy however if he did it must have been a "bad day". He is not a wife or child beater, he is not a thief. He appears to be just another hard working "Joe". We all have been impetuous and stuffed up at some time. I just hope it was not Ewen.

Yes i agree with you.
Despite the vandalism he had done I still don't believe he is guilty of any murder.
My own opinion is that the police were at a standstill in solving this case and he seemed to be the easiest person to set up a case against sadly.

Shocking comment. "Bad day, not a wife beater, hard working, we all bad a bad time..."
Are you kidding me? The killer planned and organised pedantically to kill Scott Guy. He knew that Scott had to get up at that time, he knew he would stop to open the gate etc etc. He also knew that Scott would leave behind a wife, son and pregnant wife!!!
If Ewan Mcdonald is the murder, he should be facing the maximum force of the law.

I think Ewan Mcdonald was a very hard working, an honest worker they call them, man. His wife and children supported him in this. They were a very close couple devoted to each other. I dont think he killed Annas brother I think he resented him because he preferred to be with his wife Kylee and little boy leaving Ewan to do the work. I pray that he will be with his family again and they the police look deeper and find the real person who did it

My gut instinct agrees with you on this.
I have never posted on forums regarding any kind of crime but I have been following this unfortunate event & really feel for the wives & children as well as both parents of Scott & Ewen.
Once Ewen is declared innocent of any such crime i can only imagine how hard it will be for this man to rebuild any normal life with his family.

Ok, it was pretty nasty what he had done with the vandalism but murder is a whole different story, this man had too much to lose & nothing to gain to even go that far.

In regards to the neoprene shoes they are trying to pin on him, i would imagine the prints should be showing a lot of wear & tear of the tread marks considering they should be about 8yrs old & not brand new as the print they have appears to be...The poor man has been set up.

IF i am wrong then I do apologise but the defense is desperate to just simply have someone convicted.

Did ewen go off the handle because Kylee was having an affair. in which she was? hence the graffiti.
The married man she was having the affair with.. were all his partners and friends investigated?
How come everyone other than the police only refers to ewen have 1 dive boot ever being seen? asize 9 now the prints are size 11? what have the police actually got? guilty without a doubt???? i think not.

What was Simon Asplins alibi ? Did'nt he go and do some fencing on the morning of the murder ! Has anyone looked under the fence posts he put in the ground for the puppies ? Yes the police did a crap job of securing the murder scene and all the people. They were all left to do what ever they wanted on the day of the murder. They were all suspects if they were there! If Ewan did it how did he dispose of the puppies and when ? If everyone was rounded up he would not be in this position as he would have been busted or innocent ! Surely the police could have got some old dive boots from others who bought them then they would have know how many ridges they had on the soles. Ewan is screwed if he is found guilty or not now ! How can he return to normal family life on the farm if he is found not guilty when the police obviously think he did ! Today is D day for the jury to make a decision effecting Ewan's life forever. Hope they get it right !

We are really happy with the Not Guilty verdict but on a sad note there are no winners in this at the end of the day.
Families have been destroyed & even the Police cannot be bothered to find the real murderer.

The Police should be investigated for there poor investigation.

hey don't pick on the police.....this is how it works.
the police find what evidence they can and give it to the crown prosecutor. the police had nothing but the crown prosecutor was the one to pursue the case with the lack of police evidence. the police would have already known like most of us .....guilty beyond all doubt???? not even close.
