Link to PDF Statement – 2016 08 19 Media Statement (R v Walsh) (138Kb)




Today the prosecution advised the Supreme Court that it will not oppose the court finding Mr Cy Walsh was mentally incompetent at the time of the death of Mr Phil Walsh.


The prosecution’s position has been reached after reviewing all relevant material gathered by SAPol in the course of its investigation, the reports of the forensic psychiatrists who have examined Mr Cy Walsh and following consultation with relevant parties. I emphasise that no finding has yet been made by the Court.


Mr Phil Walsh’s wife has advised that she does not wish to be contacted by the media. I ask that her wishes be respected.


I do not propose to make any further comment.
