He is a boat sailor from Auckland who sailed around Marlborough and started hearing local boaties gossip and rumour about the supposed truth behind this international murder mystery.----On the morning of 1 January 1998, two young New Year’s Eve partygoers disappeared.

Ben Smart (21) and Olivia Hope (17) had attended an all-night party to see in the New Year at Furneaux Lodge, in Endeavour Inlet, in the Marlborough Sounds, at the northern point of the South Island of New Zealand. They were reported missing by Gerald Hope, Olivia’s father, on Friday 2 January. No sightings of them had been made since the early hours of 1 January. Initially, their disappearance was treated as a missing persons enquiry.Scott Watson was arrested for the murders on 15 June 1998, two weeks before his 27th birthday. He had 48 prior convictions, mainly from when he was a teenager, for burglary, theft, cannabis offences, two of possessing an offensive weapon, and one of assault when he was 16.

He had been imprisoned for two short periods in 1989 and 1990. He had just one minor conviction in the eight years leading up to 1998.The defence appealed Watson’s conviction, and the case went to the Court of Appeal in April and May 2000. Three Appeal Court judges heard submissions from both the prosecution and the defence, but decided there was no new evidence to recommend a second trial.[9] They disregarded the defence’s submission that the “two trip” theory had appeared “out of the blue” late in the trial.Questions have been raised about the manner of the police investigation, notably by Mike Kalaugher, who in 2001 published a book which was critical of the police methods used to obtain the conviction of Scott Watson, and by Keith Hunter, in a 2003 television documentary, and a 2006 book.
