Senior Constable Susan Forte was so emotional she could barely walk without the support of her family as she exited the station to place flowers at a memorial site.

While hunched over, surrounded by family and media, a carful of Maddison's associates drove past and yelled: "What about Rick?".

A gasp could be heard but the Forte family did not otherwise react.
