The family of the pregnant teenager Tiffany Taylor was desperate for ties with a “user” boyfriend over two decades her oldest before she disappeared, a court was told.
The 16-year-old disappeared in July 2015 after a meeting with Rodney Wayne Williams, 65, for paid sex arranged through the Oasis website.
Her body was never found.
Williams argued in the Supreme Court of Brisbane for the murder of Tiffany after he was supposed to have picked her up at the Waterford Motor Inn.
Reports between the couple showed that Williams agreed to pay $ 500 for sex, but he says it never happened.
Tiffany’s friend, Gregory Hill, 45, denies pimping the teenager despite 300 messages about money and meeting men allegedly found on his phone.
He also says that he was not intimate with Tiffany when she was a child.
But Tiffany’s brother-in-law Nathan Stocks told the court that Mr. Hill started chasing her for a relationship when she was about 12 years old.

“He started to be friendly with Tiffany and asked to take her for dog walks and to the beach,” he said Thursday.
‘In the beginning it was not so bad, but we did not all expect that to be his intention.
“He was clearly a much older man, and we just thought he was a kind, nice person.”
Mr. Stocks said that the Tiffany family were trying to discourage Mr. Hill, but he “kept on getting on with it.”
They also tried to talk “wisely” with Tiffany, but she had started smoking cannabis and chrome and was spending time with Mr Hill instead of going to school.
“Greg was a demanding person … she loved him, but I didn’t see anything that said he loved her,” he said.
“He was just a user who got what he wanted from her.
“There was always a bad feeling that I got rid of him.”
Tiffany left her family’s home shortly thereafter and went to live with Mr. Hill.
Mr. Stocks told the court in the four years that he knew Mr. Hill that he only saw him working “one or two days.”
“He could have got a job … instead of smoking weed in our house,” he said.

After Tiffany disappeared, Mr. Stocks said he had searched for Tiffany in a well-known local drug store, where a man said he had recently seen the teenager.
Earlier, prosecutor Philip McCarthy QC told the jury that after Williams had picked up Tiffany, he drove to Larapinta industrial park where “something happens” while being stopped for about 20 minutes
He said Williams then drove to the Esk-Ferndale region, where the police searched dams and bushland for the body of Tiffany, unsuccessfully.
Later in the day, it is said that Williams also laid a false trail of communication with the teenager on the Oasis website.
One message read: “Sorry I didn’t show up, I decided I wouldn’t pay for it.”
The process continues.
