Brittany Higgins reveals cryptic message in final Instagram post before being ... trends now
Brittany Higgins posted a series of cryptic photos in her final Instagram post just days before she was admitted to hospital and her rape trial was abandoned.
In one of them, she wears a long navy dress and is walking purposefully towards the ACT Supreme Court alongside her lawyer and partner, David Sharaz.
In the other, the 28-year-old is standing outside the court wearing a brown pantsuit and is lifting one hand to her mouth as tears stream down her face.
'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,' Charles Dickens [a tale of two cities],' the caption read.

Ms Higgins was reacting to the news that the heavily-publicised rape trial would be scrapped after a jury member brought prohibited reading material - an academic study about false rape allegations - into the courtroom.
Ms Higgins, 28, claims her ex-colleague Bruce Lehrmann sexually assaulted her in defence minister Linda Reynolds' office at Parliament House after a boozy night out in Canberra in March, 2019.
Mr Lehrmann, 27, has always strenuously denied the allegation and pleaded not guilty in the first trial before it sensationally collapsed in October.
Her Instagram series came just two weeks before a second trial scheduled for February 2023 was abandoned after she underwent a medical assessment.
