Gable Tostee claims Warriena Wright attacked him first before she fell 14 floors to her death.
Shortly after Wright’s death in 2014, the Daily Mail reports Tostee denfended himself in a blog post published on a body building blog.
'At first we got along great but as the night continued, her behaviour became strange and she became increasingly aggressive,' Tostee wrote two-years ago.
'I'm not sure whether she found it amusing but it was getting out of hand. She kept hitting me, taunting me, throwing my stuff around and trashing my apartment.
'For the last couple of hours with her most of my efforts were spent trying to placate her in the hope that she would come down.
Explaining why he recorded the night, Tostee said he 'regularly made audio recordings of my drunk nights on the town in case something happened'.
'I kept them for myself but didn't need to listen to them 99 per cent of the time. It's so easy to do using a smartphone and comes at such a small cost, and sometimes the recordings have been invaluable.'
As for what happened after he locked Wright on the balcony, Tostee said he ‘literally’ turned around for ten seconds before looking back through the glass door.
‘I only briefly for a fraction of a second saw Warriena on the other side of the railing before she disappeared out of view,' Tostee said.
'At the time I couldn't tell if she had fallen or climbed down to another floor. All I knew was that she was no longer there.'
After three days of jury deliberations Tostee was found not guilty of murder and not guilty of manslaughter.
