Colby is in a whole lot of trouble after his arrest on Home and Away. But WHO is the mystery witness who has exposed his killer crime?

There is panic in Summer Bay after Colby Thorne's (played by Tim Franklin) very public arrest by detective Angelo Rosetta (Luke Jacobz) on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings)...

Colby's younger sister, Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller), her boyfriend, Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) and friends, Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor), Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) and Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) all know that Colby is GUILTY of shooting dead his hated stapdad, Ross Nixon over a year ago.

However, now they face the very real possibility of seeing Colby sent to prison for the crime.
