Even the public could see there was no evidence agaist him. Does this mean we the tax payer will have to cough up millions in compensation.

I agree with David. The verdict comes as no surprise. This has been a terrible ordeal for Lloyd and, especially, his daughters. Hopefully they will now be left in peace.

The good news is that the Rayney girls still have their father, and can celebrate christmas as a loving family. The bad news is what a bloody waste of my hard earned tax paying money this whole debacle has caused - the judge walks off with a fat pocket, and the ugly thing, Just who did kill Corryn Rayney ? Does that continue to be pursued ?

Now that Lloyd has been declared innocent,will the Police continue to search for the perpetrator of the crime, or just hope it goes away like all the Claremont cases?

How could the Prosecutor not see there was plenty of room for "reasonable doubt" and decide not to proceed months ago. 3 months of expensive court time to deliver a case always suggested it was a pretty vague case. Our system should allow for those found not guilty to get costs. Why should people have to go broke to prove they are not guilty in the first place

I am just concerned how the law or police department going to repay Mr Rayney who from last five years bearing this pain- pain of loosing social life, pain of not being in job loosing a great loss in career, pain of keeping their daughter believe that he is innocent and all those mental trauma he has been put in to. Now those officers who was trying to make Mr Rayney scapegoat for their failure in doing jobs and now how many more years to find the culprit. This clearly shows law and order status of my country and the credential of those people who are leading this institution. The answer we all need to find it out.

The questions that need to be asked are:- 1. Do the WA police have the trained resources to deal with such a case and 2. With Lloyd Rayney now being found innocent, then who committed the murder and what is going to be done about bringing the perpetrator/s to justice

The best thing about the Lloyd Rayney case outcome is that the public accept Lloyd Rayney's innocence, much better than a reasonable doubt outcome. Now he might have a job writing a book and a film of his ordeal, plus other media deals. Small compensation for his career, reputation and family losses.

Is this a case of the perfect crime then? Was this an example of 'guilty until proven innocent'? Is this an insight into how our legal system operates? If so, then does the average Aussie who cannot afford the media coverage or the expensive defence get treated better or worse? Either way, now starts the race to books and movie rights... This is a sad day where it appears that no one wins.
