Could Jeremy Bamber Actually Be Innocent?

Section:

Jeremy Bamber begins challenge against his conviction just as a TV series similar to that that generated renewed interest in the conviction of the Menendez brothers is about to be aired

Jeremy Bamber may be innocent or he may be guilty. Now, alongside renewed interest in his case – not quite yet akin to that shown over the 2017 crime anthology series Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders – with the forthcoming ITV drama White House Farm comes news that this convicted killer of five’s lawyers began a challenge to the Crown Prosecution Service over withheld evidence on Friday.

 

Strangely little reported other than by The Guardian, the statement of facts and grounds lodged at the High Court on Friday challenge the CPS over “its failure to disclose evidence [Bamber’s lawyers] say would undermine the safety of his conviction.” Relating primarily to the matter of whether a much contested silencer contained the blood of his sister Sheila Caffell or whether other silencers had been present (and disappeared even), of the news Bamber spoke from HM Prison Wakefield and remarked:

 

“We are now in a position to show exactly what has been withheld, which amounts to thousands of key files and documents pertaining to, not just the forensic examination of two silencers, but also to my innocence. This repeated non–disclosure means that the truth remains unknown, as the evidence that gives my case clarity still remains hidden.”

 

Mark Newby, a solicitor advocate from QualitySolicitors Jordans and a representative of Bamber, added:

 

“It is disappointing that the CPS has not agreed to provide material that is needed by an independent expert to support the overwhelming inference that a second silencer was examined during the police and forensic science service investigations. We hope that this can quickly be resolved so that the expert can get on with his job and the case can be put back before the Court of Appeal in order to correct this very grave miscarriage of justice.”

 

The drama series White House Farm itself is likely to have more impact, however, with the public as this series will reintroduce the story of the 1985 slayings to the British public – a generation of whom will not have even been alive 35 years ago even. For the Menendez brothers, The Menendez Murders brought the question of whether they were victims of parental abuse rather than just monstrous murderers back to wider attention and partially impacted on them being finally allowed to spend time together for the first time in 26 years. For Jeremy Bamber, maybe, just maybe, this series will help encourage the public to question the matter of whether he was actually the perpetrator of the horrific crimes that occurred on the 7th August 1985.

 

As we ourselves asked in The Steeple Times in October 2013 – after points were raised about the matter by a former Conservative MP named Andrew Hunter – “Could Bamber be innocent?” Furthermore, in the House of Lords in September 2017, Baroness Jones of Moulescoomb asked questions about withheld evidence in the case. Now, finally, these very issues may now very well be quite rightly at least examined.

 

ITV will screen the six part true crime drama White House Farm in January. It stars Alfie Allen, Cressida Bonas, Amanda Burton and Freddie Fox amongst others.

  1. Police coverup of blood, silencer and phone call matter I think. Also – why did the policeman spot movement inside the farmhouse when Jeremy Bamber was outside with him? Would suggest it was the sister in my view — but who knows.

  2. I had lunch with Bambis husband shortly after the case. Jeremy is a very clever and manipulative man who was adopted by wealthy farmers and wanted their money. He confessed to his current girlfriend at the time. He dislikes prison and is trying to et out. Not a nice man. Very doubtful case he keeps trying but on flimsy evidence when the case against him is very very strong. Waster.

    • I just want to add that the twin’s father, Bambi’s husband, was a man living with heartbreak, full of sadness but no malice. He is a gentle spiritual creative man, and we did not have a “bitchfest ” but a sober assessment of the killer’s character and motivation. I have followed the case for years, and have absolutely no hint of his innocence! Guilty as charged!

      • Thanks Tessa. I assume the court have been in touch with you and Colin, since you’re so sure? Why bother with the inconvenience of hearings, due process and fair trials if you can decide for us?

    • May he rot in hell! I have seen the documentary about five times. It is way before my time but I know a killer when I see one. The guy is a typical psychopath. Was all about the money and didn’t want to work for it. If you want answers to whom is the murderer find a motive. Just like those awful Menendez terrible twins. Killed for money. Their own fam. Truly sick. What is it with these lefty do gooder sorts who think these sickos should be let out of their prison hell? Some people are getting fooled. Those three are where they belong and I hope not one sees day light again. Soak them in petrol and set them alight. Save money. Makes sense.

      • Trust Julie Randall to go into a rant. You seem like a very troubled and very unpleasant woman. The Menendez brothers were abused and Jeremy Bamber’s conviction is unsafe. You bring shame on womankind with these vile remarks. Shame on you.

      • You’re right Julie. I think in future we shouldn’t bother with inconvenient things like court hearings, fair trials and appeals. Instead, we should just ask the judges and jurors to watch documentaries. That way, they can make up their minds quickly without all this needless fuss.

  3. Tessa, You summed it up exactly, it seems to me. Very flimsy evidence, and the case against him was pretty overwhelming.
    There was a case in NY in the 80s, when a teenage son murdered his parents and sister, then said his sister killed the parents, so of course he had to kill her. Been in prison since, than goodness. Different circumstances but they get 10 out of 10 for trying the same defence, and still deserve to remain in prison.

    • Thanks Margaret. I think the court should have consulted you, perhaps as an expert witness. You could have set them all right and told then that there’s no smoke without fire and anybody putting forward a defence of any sort against murder charges is a cheeky so-and-so and they should all just be found guilty, and we needn’t bother with all this fair trials and appeals business. They’re all guilty anyway, so Just go straight to sentencing.
