    Im going next week (valentines day of all the f**kin days to pick)

    Just wondered if anyone knows what sort of things happen. Im going as a witness - will I be asked to speak about it, or see photos things like that?

    Thanks in advance for any replies :smile:
     
  2. Never yet heard of such a "formal" court procedure (not with 'witnesses' anyway - only coroners and investigators).
    And, yeah - what a terrible day (as if there were a 'good' one)

    I can't conceive you'll be shown pictures (!), but quite likely will be asked to speak... However, I'm not at all sure WHO will be asking the questions. All I can foresee is that it'll be hurtful, sad, and stressful (to say the least) for most everyone there...

    Still, perhaps such things should be spoken of more openly... I wish you the best in what will be, well, an ordeal.
