Gable Tostee's Tinder Pick-Up Lines Revealed In Court

Evidence in the murder trial of Gold Coast man Gable Tostee over the balcony death of New Zealand tourist Warriena Wright is coming to a close.

The final prosecution witness in the case, a pathologist, is due to testify on Thursday about the fatal injuries Ms Wright sustained when she fell from Tostee's 14th floor balcony in the early hours of August 8, 2014.

Tostee has pleaded not guilty in the Brisbane Supreme Court to murdering Ms Wright.

It is alleged he intimidated Ms Wright so greatly she felt the only way to escape his apartment was to climb down from the balcony after he had locked her out there.


The pair met on dating app Tinder on August 1 while Ms Wright was in Australia for a two-week vacation to attend a friend's wedding.

In their initial chat, Tostee told Ms Wright "you look delicious. I want to do dirty things to you".

He also asked her whether she was a "freak in the sheets".

"Let's get drunk together, I'm a pornstar after a few drinks!" Tostee said.

The jury has been shown CCTV footage that captured the pair meeting in person for the first time on the Thursday night and Ms Wright's final moments in public as she got into the lift at Tostee's apartment building.

The footage also shows Tostee leaving the building at 2.25am through the basement car park just minutes after Ms Wright fell to her death.


Phone records tendered in court reveal Tostee did not call triple zero but instead tried to contact criminal law firm Potts Lawyers as well as his father Gray Tostee.

He also paced about the Gold Coast entertainment precinct and bought a pizza in the hour after Mr Wright's fall, the jury saw.

Once the evidence in Tostee's trial has concluded, prosecutor Glen Cash and defence barrister Saul Holt QC will give their closing submissions, followed by Justice John Byrne's directions to the jury.
