DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

IAM never quite con­vinced that day­time drink­ing is a sign that some­one’s in trou­ble. I wish writers did more imag­i­na­tive things to con­vey a life in dis­ar­ray.

While the big in­ves­ti­ga­tion into which cop- per planted the ev­i­dence that sent Dane Ma­jors to jail for the mur­der of his wife Tah­nee goes on with­out him.

Nick’s not cor­rupt, we can be pos­i­tive of that. Al­most cer­tain. Seventy per cent sure any­way. And his part­ner/men­tor who an­swered the 000 call and went out to the Ma­jors’ house with him that night 10 years ago re­cently put a gun in his mouth and can’t speak for any­one any­more.

Dane is a cricket celebrity, and Tah­nee was a mas­sive WAG. Dane is a jack­ass, but does that make him guilty of blud­geon­ing his wife with a five-iron? Pos­si­bly. But also in the mix are Tah­nee’s fa­ther, Tah­nee’s best friend Narelle and Narelle’s ex-hus­band.
