A Double Shot or Not?

Did Sheila Caffell shoot herself once or twice or was she murdered by her bother Jeremy Bamber? New evidence is revealed

On the eve of the final episode of ITV’s White House Farm airing, fresh doubt has been raised as to whether Sheila Caffell was the victim of murder or whether she was the perpetrator of a murder-suicide.

 

This morning, the Guardian revealed that lawyers for Jeremy Bamber – who is serving a whole life sentence for murdering his adoptive parents Nevill and June Bamber, his sister Sheila Caffell and her twin sons Daniel and Nicholas Caffell – have discovered in archives a number of statements that contradict the claim that Sheila Caffell was shot twice before police entered the crime scene at White House Farm, near Tolleshunt D’Arcy in Essex.

 

In summary, “the newly discovered statements show that before the Essex Police photographer began taking crime scene photographs at the scene at 10.20am on 7th August, illustrating that Caffell had sustained two gunshot wounds, five senior officers and the police surgeon had seen Caffell and suggested there was only one wound,” according to the Guardian’s Simon Hattenstone.

 

Speaking to the paper, Mark Newby of Quality Solicitors Jordans for Bamber – a man whom has never ceased protesting his innocence – remarked:

 

“The jury only heard of the two shots, which was relied upon by the crown to support their case, but this wasn’t the whole picture. It represents yet another significant aspect to this case which supports Jeremy Bamber and undermines this conviction.”

 

At the very least, alongside the alleged evidence relating to whether movement was sighted inside the farmhouse whilst Jeremy Bamber was outside with police, the contradictory telephone records and the contradictory evidence relating to silencers, there is indeed now  a level of doubt in this case that makes it worthy of reinvestigation.

  1. Many things about this conviction do not add up. Plainly Essex Police were incompetent and though does not mean that Jeremy Bamber is innocent, his conviction is most certainly unsafe. A new investigation is urgently required.

  2. His sister was one hot Sheila!!!!!!!!! He should not have killed her!!!!!!!!!!! He should have sent her Down Under!!!!!!!!!!!! Much better than what he did!!!!!!!!!!! Evil man!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep him locked up —— For life —— Or just bring back the death penalty and finish the monster off!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I think his own words condemn him: pointing the police to his sister when (according to appeal judgment) she had no trace of gunshot residue/lubricant/lead on her consistent with firing/reloading a gun, nails in perfect order, no-one else’s blood on her when the assailant had not only had a violent struggle with the father, battering him and overcoming him (he was apparently taller than her) but also shot him and three other people. Also the appeal court judgment says she “received monthly injections of Haloperidol, a drug used to treat agitated states which had anti-psychotic and tranquillising properties. It also has sedative side effects at the levels prescribed.” So the anti-psychotic, tranquillising and sedative effects of that medication would also have had to not have been working for her to have gone berserk with a gun.
