Further questions about the conduct of Essex Police raised as it is revealed they destroyed the bible, nightclothes and pillows that were found with the victims at White House Farm on the night of the 1985 murders
On Monday on Twitter, the @Bambertweets account shared a piece of little-known information that raises yet more questions about the safety of the conviction of Jeremy Bamber over the murders at White House Farm during the night of the 6th and 7th August 1985.
In a tweet, the ‘Official Campaign’ for Jeremy Bamber shared an image of his late sister, Sheila Caffell, a diagnosed schizophrenia sufferer, alongside a letter from the Criminal Cases Review Commission to Glaisyers Solicitors LLP (whom then represented the convicted serial killer).
That correspondence, dated 20th March 2000, contained a statement that tellingly reads: “It is desirable that this information does not become generally known” and given its contents, we can now see why.
Most shockingly, the letter informs Jeremy Bamber’s legal advisors that June Bamber’s nightdress, Sheila Caffell’s nightdress and Ralph Bamber’s, Daniel Caffell’s and Nicholas Caffell’s pyjamas were all “destroyed in 1986” along with a bible found next to Miss Caffell and various pillows and pillowcases.
Given Essex Police’s mismanagement of this investigation is abundantly clear and that there are discrepancies relating to call logs and timings and issues relating to non-disclosure and contamination of evidence, yet again we join those suggesting that Jeremy Bamber’s conviction deserves to be reinvestigated. We neither claim Mr Bamber is innocent or guilty, but at the very least, this is a matter that should finally be properly examined on the basis that it is clearly unsafe.
