David wanted to celebrate his sister's birthday after her death

David wanted to have a birthday party for Arawa on Sunday 26th June, a week after the murders, and ask Arawa’s friends over. When it was suggested this was not such a good idea, he became very angry, paled, clenched his fists and growled “well if you won’t I’m sure one of her friends will!”. One of his suggestions for the celebration was to take the cassette player and go out to the grave, play some music and dance there.  However, by Sunday David was in prison so there was no party.
