The Mad Song
I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.
On August 8th, 2014, 30-year-old Gable Tostee pleaded not guilty to the murder of 26-year-old Warriena Wright, who had fallen to her death from the 14th floor balcony of his Surfers Paradise apartment in the Avalon building that had a striking view of the Gold Coast and Nerang River.
On December 13, 2017, charges were dropped against Mustafa Ururyar after his conviction had been overturned. Mandi Gray said publicly that she never meant to vilify Ururyar and that she did not believe in prisons. She is the one who wanted to sign a peace bond while Ururyar resisted, but finally opted for sparing himself and his family, the expenses and hardship of a new trial. One has to wonder why he was dragged into court in the first place.
