'Sock print may be Sica's'

A HIGHLY-decorated Canadian foot impression specialist believes a sock print found at a triple murder scene was made by the accused killer Massimo 'Max' Sica.

Mr Sica is on trial for the murders of his ex-girlfriend Neelma Singh, 24, her brother Kunal, 18, and sister Sidhi, 12.

The siblings were found dead in the spa bath of their parent's ensuite on April 22, 2003.

Giving evidence during day 50 of the trial, forensic expert Robert Kennedy told the court it was likely that at least two sock prints found on the Singh's staircase after the murders were made by Mr Sica.

Prosector Brendan Campbell first asked Mr Kennedy whether he had been able to reach a conclusion about the origin of a left-foot impression found at the base of the staircase.

"Yes, I found there was support to the hypothesis that the impression could have been made by the impression from the accused," Mr Kennedy said.
