- Kiwi woman was Gable Tostee's shoulder to cry on during murder trial
- Lizzi Evans was a close supporter, watching the trial with his parents
- Mr Tostee was acquitted of murder and manslaughter last week
- Verdict was delivered more than two years after Warriena Wright's death
- She plunged from his balcony at the Avalon Apartments complex
New Zealand woman Lizzi Evans was the Gold Coast carpet layer's shoulder to cry on during his two-week trial, the Daily Mail Australia revealed.
Ms Evans has since mounted a defence of her 'partner' online, writing to New Zealand journalist Rachel Smalley after she wrote a column about the Tostee trial.
She even described Ms Wright as a 'self confessed "psycho" drunk' who felt it OK to 'assault people without warning on their own home'.

'You continue to point the finger at an innocent man who acted in self-defence,' Ms Evans wrote, in a scathing Facebook post.
'Correct the jury found him not guilty and had you sat through the trial you would understand why but I certainly didn't see you there.
'What a judgmental and narrow minded report about a situation you clearly know nothing about.'
In another post, she described Mr Tostee as a 'very strong willed' and 'determined' man who has been smeared by the media and was studying architecture.
Ms Evans was at the courthouse with Mr Tostee's family last week as a Supreme Court jury of six men and six women deliberated the 30-year-old's fate.
She was a constant presence by his side during the court proceedings and in the days since.
At the weekend, she even posted a late-night video to social media of 'Gable' reading news stories about himself.
During the four tense days the jury spent deliberating and asking questions last week, Ms Evans took pride of place in a private room for Mr Tostee's family.
She sat in the front row of the public gallery on several days, including as the jury unanimously acquitted him of all charges on Thursday afternoon.
Mr Tostee's supporters gasped as the dual 'not guilty' verdicts were read to the Court and Ms Evans was the first to leave the room with the acquitted Mr Tostee.
Ms Evans has posted a happy moment with Gable to Snapchat since the trial's conclusion.
'All Gable ever does is just read about himself,' she says during one late night clip - as he flicks through news stories apparently concerning his trial.
A smug Mr Tostee turns and tells the camera: 'I'm not up myself or anything.'
Daily Mail Australia contacted Ms Evans for comment on Monday.
It was revealed last week that Mr Tostee told friends he plans to 'start fresh' now the proceedings are over and he is a free man.
There is little doubt his life was changed forever by Tinder date Warriena Wright's fatal fall from his 14th floor Surfers Paradise apartment on August 7, 2014.
His lawyer Nick Dore has told media Mr Tostee wanted to express his condolences to Ms Wright's family but did not because of his advice.
'He is very sympathetic to Ms Wright's family,' Mr Dore said last week.
'It was purely at my discretion that a expression of sympathy was not forthcoming.
'His life was under a microscope...
'The last thing I wanted to do was contributed any further words that could see it being misconstrued.'
In a statement to a press pack on Thursday, Mr Dore said Mr Tostee was 'relieved' by the jury's not guilty verdict.
