The court heard how Bernadette’s folks told the police she had fled and sent messages from her telephone to loved ones professing to be her to redirect analysts.
Wilding said the young lady’s dad and her kid mother, Sarah Walker, framed an “unholy union” to “deceive, redirect and distort” the police examination and conceal Bernadette’s passing. “All parental love and duty was gone, if at any time it really existed,” Wilding said.

“They misled everybody around them … about her vanishing and they were courageous in their quest for their naughty, devilish arrangement,” she said. Both were captured over about a month and a half later.
“Right up ’til today, neither of them acknowledges that Bea is dead,” Wilding added.
