Caroline Stuttle murder trial nears its end


 

PEOPLE all over the world will continue to read about Caroline Stuttle once the book penned by her father Alan is published.

Alan Stuttle is working on a book which traces the 100 terrible days which followed the news of his daughter Caroline's death.

The artist has also set up a bursary at Caroline's school to help other budding artists. Alan and his son Richard spoke to the News-Mail yesterday about Caroline, the Rainbow Foundation and the trial's pending conclusion.

"It is very necessary for things to come to a close for me, but I wouldn't want anyone to go through a trial," Alan said.

Richard said while the trial had been difficult, it had also been therapeutic.

"I need to know every detail because sometimes you imagine much worse than what's actually gone on," Richard said.

The jury is expected to retire today after hearing closing arguments from the defence team and Justice Peter Dutney's summing up of the trial.
