Screams Heard at 3:30am New Years Day 1998
The jury was back in the High Court in Wellington today. Another witness has told the court he heard screams around 3.30am on New Years Day whilst sleeping on his family’s boat.
Matthew Somerville-Smith thought the noise had probably come from shore but was not certain and he believed it was a male voice. Prosecution lawyer, Nicolette Levy, questioned him about the vessels he had seen at that time. He said he had seen a classic ketch – white, possibly with some blue on it.

Somerville-Smith also described a person he had seen around the main bar of the lodge at 3am. He said the man appeared to be looking at his sister, “the way a drunk man looks at a young female.” He described the man as around 35 years old with longish hair. He did not think he would recognize him if he saw him again.
