Further doubts raised about the conviction of Jeremy Bamber
Jeremy Bamber’s conviction for the 1985 murders of his adopted parents, his sister and her children at White House Farm, Tolleshunt D’Arcy, Essex is again in question. New evidence has surfaced in a book by Andrew Hunter, a former Conservative MP, that, if proven, would indeed quash the case against Bamber for once and for all.
The police have always argued that if, as Bamber has always maintained, his paranoid schizophrenic sister, Sheila Caffell, had indeed gone on the rampage, her feet would have been covered in blood. Now, with the publication of a previously unpublished image showing blood on one of Caffell’s feet along with additional evidence relating to scratches on a silencer that may or may not have been used that night, it does indeed seem that this conviction is indeed potentially unsafe.
Jeremy Bamber is the only full-term life prisoner who refuses to admit his guilt. This could, as some would argue, be simply indication that he is an arrogant man who knows he’ll never be freed but equally this could be one of the worst miscarriages of justice of modern times.
Furthermore, that no direct forensic evidence linked Bamber to the crime and that there was not a unanimous verdict in the case has “caused unease in legal circles for years”. On the basis of this and the latest evidence, it would seem, at the very least, that this case should again be reviewed.
