Young and naive Rachel is attracted to the offer and readily agrees to Caroline's seemingly harmless offer. . She specifically mentioned wanting to disfigure Rachel after she killed her. No-one could have known she was a sadistic psychopath who was watching, waiting and planning a murder with chilling intent.

The film ends with Caroline in prison awaiting trial, and Rachel's funeral being attended by her family, boyfriend, friends and many others, mourning Rachel's misfortune and death. The body was still there when Caroline closed the door to discourage her father from entering the room on one occasion when he visited her after hearing that she was sick in the days following the murder. The film's producers objected to this, because it broke contractual obligations to the Barbers. Icon films refused to release the film theatrically in Australia and ended the contract as the film remained as per the script, not the re-cut. What Rachel must have gone through. I wouldn't have recognised her in the least. Mrs Barber wrote a letter to Parole Board general manager David Provan asking the board to deny Robertson's bail.

Instead, there are a great many passionate responses and discussions about Simone North's approach to the story. Soon after it was released, we were approached by film directors. At the time, I was too young to realise what really happened when you were taken from us. Robertson had grown up disgusted by herself, frequently painting digusting self-portraits and scribbling hateful words about herself. At school, her classmates relentlessly tease and torment her. But the incontrovertible and irrevocable fact is that you have killed and, in so doing, have created more than one victim.

Upon learning this, the Barbers strongly believe their daughter's disappearance to be a kidnapping by a local brothel; they attempt to coax the local police to investigate further. As early as 1997, two years before the murder, Caroline would take photos of Rachel, supposedly for school projects. When the trio reached the Bridge Road turn off, Rachel revealed she would be catching a different tram home than usual, from a stop located further down the road. Unusually for prison inmates, she has no enemies in jail. Rachel's family pushes to find any clue after she goes missing. Robertson, who was five years older than Rachel, baby-sat the Barber girls twice. Robertson was the victim's former babysitter, a trusted family friend and neighbour, who lured the teen to her death by manipulating her trust.

I needed and still need someone I can talk to because I don't fit in anywhere in this crazy world because I'm ugly, obese, pizza face, white worm, massive nose and just plain weird. Then, 12 days later, we got news from the police. It has that feel about Rachel. I couldn't speak, I couldn't move. Ashleigh-Rose was absolutely hysterical, Mum and Dad were drowning in a sea of sorrow. In her flat in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran, Caroline drugged the young girl, strangled her and placed her body in a wardrobe.

No one realised that she was plotting to kill her beautiful neighbour and assume her identity for a new start. In all likelihood she would have got away with it, had she been just a little bit smarter. Sometimes it makes me sick to the stomach that I was produced out of her. But when I was nine, everything changed. Flashbacks reveal details about all of the characters, including the motive of the murderer.

She immediately sees her as an embodiment of the perfect person she wants to be. Find out more in the video above, and detailed below! Robertson had a deep-rooted self loathing, as demonstrated in this self-portrait which was used as evidence in her trial. At 15, Rachel left school to pursue her dream and become a full-time dancer; Robertson's parents broke up and she left school for a year, retreated to her bedroom and wrote endless words of painful self-abuse. The other odd scene was when the family was told Rachel was dead. We were involved in every step, from seeing the script to meeting the crew on-set. Manni Carella, 31, said he thought about Barber every day and has had anxiety attacks at the thought of Robertson being released. Yesterday, Robertson was sentenced to 20 years' jail for strangling 15-year-old Rachel Barber with a telephone cord on March11 last year.
