Jamie Gao murder trial: Accused told daughter victim was ‘off his head on ice’

FORMER police officer Glen McNamara told his daughter he was “certainly sorry” student Jamie Gao was dead but insisted “he was off his head on ice ... I didn’t do anything”.
The Supreme Court jury in the murder trial of McNamara and Roger Rogerson was yesterday played a ­series of recorded calls as the Crown case draws to a close.
In one November, 2014, call from his daughter, which took place six months after his ­arrest, McNamara dismisses claims the case against the pair was strong by saying“It’s absolute crap ... got an ice dealer off his head on drugs running around with a gun.”
In a separate call the jury heard McNamara tell his youngest daughter Lucy: “He was off his head on ice, and he was trying to do something, you know. He was trying to do something terrible to me.
“I’m certainly sorry that he’s deceased, but I had nothing to do with it ... I’m sorry for his mother ... but I didn’t do anything.”
Rogerson, 75, and McNamara, 56, have pleaded not guilty to murdering Gao inside a Padstow storage unit on May 20, 2014, and to taking part in the supply of 2.78kg of the drug ice which the 20 year old allegedly brought with him.
