theanimal, she's a very fine lawyer, the body wasn't found then, and she's new to the defense side of criminal law, so she naturally advocates against suspicion.
Anyway, the alleged perpetrating woman (guess we should still remain under our 'alleged' blanket for the moment still) stuffed up big time by mixing up her racist stereotypes. If I be as racist I can and think of an intoxicated black person with no shoes, 'African' is not what I get, that's the classic racist stereotype for aboriginal.
The mother is going to be in a world of pain soon enough, because she reported the abduction of her child she was not granted a suppression on her identity as she would have been afforded if the baby was just found, and the death was investigated like a 'more typical' murder. Mum is now identified as a baby killer, she will live the rest of her life in fear of retribution - and I would not have it any other way.
