It's an all too familiar love story built on a web of lies that left a woman heartbroken, humiliated and robbed of her life savings. Only this time, it happened in Belgium. More details of Ghislaine's affair with Ric Blum will leave you gobsmacked, as will the memories of other listeners who are now coming forward to detail their encounters with the `man of many names.'

I would like to say that Gillain and her daughter in law are amazing women to speak out about their experience with this vile man. Hopefully this will spur the investigation that should have happened so long ago into what truly happened to Marion Barter.

I hope she gets finality before the holiday, won't that be a great time to reflect and be thankful? as painful as it is, all of the victims she gave closure to by searching for her mom, her mother was truly blessed to have a daughter that loves her so much even though some may think that is contrary! what an evil man....

Counsel assisting the coroner are living in Disneyland if they think this podcast wasn’t the reason the police started looking into this case again. If they can get something so obvious wrong then imagine the other things they are getting wrong.

I can't believe people are complaining podcast is too long , how long is too long when a loved one is missing. Noone is making you put it on its your choice, you can come back to it in a year for update if you just want to know the outcome

Omg, this man infuriates me!!! It's blatant he had something to do with it!! If only he could be forced to tell the truth. Although that word doesn't seem to apply to this ridiculous excuse for a human.

I find it interesting how far-reaching the questioning can be during the inquest…questions that appear to have no relevance or relation to Marion, and I guess have the sole intention of discrediting Blum. I completely accept he’s defrauded Marion and taken advantage of her, but it’s a big leap to say he single-handedly murdered her and both hid her body and covered his tracks for all this time. Have we heard anything that indicates this scoundrel has ever been violent? He doesn’t seem to have worried about his wife finding out, and he repeatedly scammed women, so is the motive to kill her to get the bank account funds? Really hoping this hasn’t all been a red herring and a waste of time for Sally.

it seems apparent that she never came back. could she have even made a flight between the time she called Sally and supposedly landed? she sent the postcards while in England, someone else used her passport to take the money, then left Aus on their real passport. she was killed in England. also, the F. Ramekill from the ad also lines up with Florabella.... she was set- up from the beginning and naive enough to walk into a trap. they are looking in the wrong place.

I am wondering if this "secret lover" dressed as her, and came back to AU to get all the money out. they showed a picture of him when he was much younger and he could've passes for her if she had short hair. They said he was known to fleece woman for money. her new last name was one of his alias. maybe he had her change it so he could claim she was his wife, if needed.

Wow this french guy is a shocker! How frustrating it is to listen to him and all the kaos he caused. He obviously had something to do with the whole thing! There's way too many coincidences with Marion's circumstances and his whole M.O with women. Something needs to go further with him and I wish you and the family all the best in finding out the actual truth...although this man is obviously a pathological and compulsive liar! He needs to pay for everything he has done to all these women...there just has to be more!

Mr Blum is a joke. I would hate to get to his stage of life and look back on my life and know I lived it with not one shred of humanity or integrity. I feel for his wife and children - and of course all women harmed by him throughout his despicable life.

Before the February part of the inquest I was sure she had voluntarily left her family and went on to live her life. After watching the full questioning of Mr.Blum online I no longer feel it was as simple as that. It’s important to listen to the whole story before passing judgement. Hopefully the April dates give us more clarity on this situation.

This is so hard to listen to. Top marks to Mr Castledon, to keep his cool under such trying circumstances. I wish Mr Blum excellent health, in order that he can appear in the Coroner's Court in April and continue his evidence. I hope he tells the truth and Sally finally gets answers and peace.
