The baby’s damp hair clinging to the side of her cheeks, her face a tapestry of bruises where a large hand had run from her forehead to her chin. Diffused marks on one creamy dimpled thigh. Pink pyjama coat with bunny motifs covering the top of her little body, and her nappy, still inside her matching pyjama pants, hastily discarded on the ground outside the toilet.

Below the waist, her body is grotesquely arranged in women’s step-ins and blue panties that come halfway to her chubby knees.
It can get a bit noisy at this end of the house; Nugget has more than once thrown up the sash window and snarled at the kids to piss off when they played outside his bedroom, darting in and out of the washing strung up on a makeshift line on the veranda. Nappies. Shirts. Nylon stockings. Ladies’ brassieres and underwear in varying sizes, flapping in the breeze, colourful as a Chinese laundry.

He would later surmise they were inflicted at or around the time of death, but it may have been earlier.
