Kyle Sandilands’ Theory on Schapelle Corby’s Boogie Board Bag

Kyle Sandilands has shared his theory about what he believes really happened with Schapelle Corby’s infamous drug-filled boogie board bag.

Schapelle, 46, was incarcerated for nine years for attempting to smuggle cannabis into Bali, Indonesia, which has notoriously strict drug laws.

She was arrested at Bali airport in October 2004 with 4.2kg of cannabis wrapped in plastic inside her boogie board bag.

Schapelle has always maintained her innocence and her lawyers argued she had unintentionally become a drug mule, suggesting baggage handlers put the drugs in her bag.

Now, radio shock jock Kyle, 53, has shared his own theory about what he thinks really happened as he discussed her incarceration on the Kyle and Jackie O Show.

In Wednesday’s episode, Kyle said he believes smugglers forgot to take the cannabis out of the bag after her transit flight from Brisbane to Sydney, leading to it accidentally travelling on to Bali.

‘I think they didn’t take something out that should have come from Brisbane to Sydney. They missed it and off it went and got redirected to Bali,’ he shared.

His co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson also shared her sympathies with Schapelle, claiming she didn’t deserve the nine-year prison sentence.

‘[Schapelle] nearly lost her mind over it. Either way, even if she did it, I don’t think she deserved what she went through,’ Jackie, 49, argued.

Kyle also called for a change to the strict drug laws as they argued Schapelle served a very strict sentence for the crime.

Schapelle has made a new life for herself after her release from an Indonesian prison in 2014, and is now making a living as a successful clockmaker.

Earlier this year, she promoted some of her colourful timepieces with her 162,000 followers, which typically retail for around $220.

‘My new small size. Aren’t they cute? Look how cute this is,’ the SAS Australia contestant said as she held an ocean-themed mini-clock up to the camera.

Schapelle was released from Kerobokan Prison in 2014 and deported from Indonesia in 2017, with many believing she received a lifetime ban from the country. 

However, she shocked her Instagram followers earlier this year when she revealed she was only given a six-month ban from the tropical paradise. 

‘Not true,’ she clarified of the reported lifetime ban. ‘I was given a 6 month ban.’ 

But Schapelle revealed she has ‘no yearning desire to go back’ to Bali after her incarceration, despite being allowed to return.
