On Monday, we brought you the news of a 26-year-old girl who fell 14 stories to her death while allegedly trying to escape her violent Tinder date in Australia.
30-year-old Gable Tostee is currently on trial for murder, accused of intimidating Warriena Wright into climbing over the balcony trying to escape after a three-hour argument that Tostee recorded on his phone, resulting in Tostee telling her she’s lucky he hadn’t ‘thrown her off his balcony.’ The audio file also revealed that Warriena had screamed ‘no’ 33 times before she died.
Today marks the fourth day of Tostee’s trial, in which new evidence revealed that Ms. Wright’s blood alcohol level was 0.156, three times over the legal limit.
The court heard that there was no signs that she had been choked, as initially suspected, but the 26-year-old was covered in self-inflicted wounds and scars on her right leg, chest, and both wrists, reports Daily Mail.
A witness for the prosecution told the court Thursday morning that Ms. Wright’s body was found almost ‘folded over itself,’ with her head bent down toward her bottom and part of her jeans caught in her skull fracture. It was nearly impossible to distinguish her height based on the severity of her injuries, 80 in total.
Following the fatal fall, Tostee’s behavior was bizarre–security cameras showed Tostee walking around the nearby entertainment precinct, ordering Domino’s Pizza and calling his dad to come pick him up.
Tostee has hired a hire profile lawyer named Saul Holt QC to help his case, which could last up to eight days. We’ll keep you posted as more details emerge.
