I've seen this before and was left with did he or didn't he.

Like the Bamber case the most important evidence is either missing or has been destroyed. 

The house where the little girl lived looked off track to me, so it has to be someone who knew her in my opinion.  Shame on the mother for leaving her at 12 years old to look after a baby, but on saying that times were hard then and there was no childcare as we have today.  So maybe saying shame on the mother is not a fair thing to say.

The government here says that when a child reaches 10 years old the mother has to find work unless she has children under the age of 10.  I think this is an enforcement to be honest one that can only lead to children being left to fend for themselves in a world where there is such violence and child abuse. 

He lost his appeal in 2014 or the judge rejected his application.  He is adamant that he did not kill her, but what on earth was he doing in the woods? Shooting up in not a very good excuse.  How can the items from his car which was found on the drive of her home be explained? other than the items were planted which is suggested by one ex copper.  The other thing is the scarf and rope, how can that be explained unless again these items were planted, which is unlikely....

The other bloke that was named as being a suspect...why don't the authorities get a DNA sample? its as easy as that, but they fail to do the obvious. 

Fair trial I don't think he got one....tbh.... ;D ;D ;D ;D

His defence lawyer said that because there was an arrest and a charge all interests of other possible suspect cease to exist....I think that is true in many cases in the USA where there are more criminals on the outside than there are on the inside.

Can you remember what the book the ex cop was writing called Nugs?

 A sad case of a man who had lost control of his life primarily through the use of recreational drugs and who maybe wanted to exact retribution on a female after his wife withdrew her favours from him. The evidence is overwhelming,from having no alibi, his notebook and documents found on the driveway of the house where Sarah was babysitting,to him flagging down a Police vehicle eight hours later in a stupor,the partial bitemark on one of his biceps, his bleeding knuckles and hand patterns on the shoulders. The deceased suffered multiple small stabwounds and wife Nancy noticed subsequently that the penknife was missing from his key ring. Sex was not the primary motive from a man who could have found casual sex from women attracted to his clean-cut looks,but Dechaine chose a young prepubescent girl,whom he espied by chance as he stopped to relieve himself on the driveway and whom he sexually assaulted with sticks,the control element being forefront in his mind as he bound and gagged her with rope traced back to his own truck.

The deceased suffered multiple small stabwounds and wife Nancy noticed subsequently that the penknife was missing from his key ring. Sex was not the primary motive from a man who could have found casual sex from women attracted to his clean-cut looks,but Dechaine chose a young prepubescent girl,whom he espied by chance as he stopped to urinate on the driveway and whom he sexually assaulted with sticks,the control element being forefront in his mind as he bound and gagged her with rope traced back to his own truck.

He's not got a lot going for him has he Steve. Its possible that he has no recollection of the crime due to being so high on drugs.  The wee lass had no shoes so he must have gone to the house, but there was no forensic evidence of her being in the truck, which I find odd.  Like the copper says out of 80 items in his truck the only two pieces that fell onto the drive where the only two pieces with his name on them.

The case was shambles like so many cases where the poilce fail at the first hurdle by not collecting all the evidence at the onset, for example his clothes to check for blood stains.  And, why did they not allow DNA evidence in court...This is why people take up these cases and make out the appallent is innocent....he might be, but I doubt it.  He was there!

Another very intriguing aspect of Dennis was his altruistic spirit, sense of humor and his genuine concern for his fellow prisoners. Many times I observed him helping others as well and encouraging them and making the most out of their daily activities in a rather unforgiving and depressing atmosphere. Over the years, I never observed any aggressive or violent tendencies in Dennis and would actually say quite the opposite, that he is much more attuned to a pacifist temperament. This always shocked me, given the violent nature of the prison environment and his very serious criminal conviction. I suppose that it only reinforces my belief that Dennis is an innocent man who was convicted under some rather unusual and seemingly unjust judicial processes. In fact, I would not have developed such a respect for him or interacted with him during our incarceration together had I ever thought he was guilty of the crime for which he was convicted. The joke in prison is that everybody is innocent and has received the short end of the stick. Unfortunately for Dennis, he just may be the only man held in Maine State Prison who is truly innocent and received an unjust punishment.

You could change the name of the person to Jeremy and the prison to Full Sutton..
