It is called the Fertility Cave. Lindy explored it, quietly cradling Azaria in her arms. Outside, she had the uneasy sensation of feeling that she was being watched. She looked up and saw a dingo standing on a large boulder and staring down at her. ’ she asked John McCombe; but though she tried to brush it aside with a joke, she felt that there was something vaguely disturbing about its implacable stare. She was later to tell Inspector Gilroy that it was almost as though it had been ‘casing the baby’.
It was then that she remembered the cry, and something turned cold inside her. A quick glance through the flap told her that the bassinet was empty, but her mind refused to accept it. She must be there; she must have just fallen out of the bassinet or got caught up in the blankets. She scrambled feverishly inside. The centre pole had been knocked askew, and the baby’s blankets were strewn across the floor of the tent. She rummaged through them desperately, her mind still refusing to accept what reason told her must be so, and emerged from the tent with her heart pounding in her chest.
At this stage, Bobbie Downs saw Lindy come out of the tent carrying the plastic ice-cream container which had held the baby’s sterilising solution. At the trial, the Crown was to suggest that Lindy might have washed copious quantities of blood from her hands, using this solution. Regrettably, no one thought to ask Bobbie Downs about this hypothesis. If they had, they would have discovered that she had seen the liquid whilst it was still in the container, and had noted that it was quite clear. Lindy poured the solution out on the ground and burst into tears.
