They then went out to his balcony where they posed for photos together, Wright pulling faces, Tostee standing beside her bare-chested. At 1am on 8 October, unbeknown to Wright, Tostee pressed record on a mobile phone in his pocket. By then Wright was dead.
Tostee, having left the building via a basement carpark but still apparently unaware of her fate as police milled around the building, had called his father who urged him to contact a leading criminal lawyer. He had then eaten a pizza.

A joint operation between WA Police and Consumer Protection, codenamed Project Sunbird, had sent Ms Jacobs a letter warning that she may be the victim of fraud, but it was too late. By the time the letter arrived in Ms Jacobs' mailbox she had already left for her ill-fated trip. When her children met with detectives in South Africa, they discovered her money, jewellery, laptop and credit cards were all missing.

I always prided myself on being transparent with women. I would always tell women, I'm not looking for anything serious right now. I wasn't in the mindset that I was looking for my wife. And then I met her. I was not looking for something serious when we met.
I had go to Israel for work two weeks later. When I got home, I proposed. I was like, "What's your last name again?

Yeah, I'll marry you. Food has always been a bond for us. We used to eat out a lot. With a one-year-old, our date nights are a bit more having a glass of wine and watching a movie at home but we love that too. It helps living with a chef. I was always into food, but after meeting Eden, I am into food.
