quotes from blogs

EMMA ALBERICI: The front page of the Croatian national daily, ‘Slobodna Dalmacija’, has published an anonymous email from someone calling themselves Red Leon.

He writes in Croatian and says he has new photos of Britt Lapthorne taken 13 hours before she went missing.

The photos are said to be taken by Dominic Dabrowiecki, a Polish student at the University of California. The newspaper says he spent the night with Britt Lapthorne before returning to the hostel at seven o’clock in the morning, and leaving the town the next day.

With her in the photos are British traveller Gareth Hopkins and Canadian Krys Noseworthy, who met the 21-year-old Australian student in Mostar five days earlier.

Email from RED LEON

EMMA ALBERICI: Saturday AM can exclusively reveal that the person who sent the email and photo to the Croatian newspaper met Dominic Dabrowiecki in Sarajevo.

In email correspondence with the ABC he said his only motivation in passing on the information was to help.

Red Leon said he received the photos from the Polish student’s Facebook internet page. With no explanation given, Red Leon said he’s spoken to the hostel owner in Dubrovnik where Britt Lapthorne had been staying.

He had told him that Dominic Dabrowiecki had returned to the hostel at am on the morning that Britt Lapthorne went missing; she was last seen just a few hours before that. It’s not clear why Red Leon had spoken to the hostel owner.

On his Facebook page Dominic Dabrowiecki says he left Dubrovnik on the 18th of September, the day Britt Lapthorne went missing. 

On the 19th he travelled to the Croatian island of Hvar.

He was the first person I messaged and I got a very quick response from him. He basically just told me what happened that night; what he remembered. He said he couldn’t remember much because he so intoxicated that he couldn’t remember a thing.

** he says he was too intoxicated to know what happened that night, yet he can clearly remember leaving the hostel on the 18th and going to HVAR on the 19th?

He claimed he was at club fuego till early hours of the morning sept 18 2008,

And then on the 19th he says he went to the island of Hvar?

You need a boat to get there.

My thoughts:

Red Leon notes in another email to another source of news, that Dominic leaves Dubrovnik on Sept 19th, 2008, not the 18th, as is claimed in this blog post.. Conflicting story….
