Reconstruction (5) - how they framed Jeremy Bamber for the murders of five members of his family

The truth behind how they framed Jeremy for these murders, lies between the original contents in file SC/688/85 and the new file contents (SC/786/85)  which was created to allow him to be prosecuted, and ultimately convicted...

Load of the first 10 bullets into the ammunition magazine of the Bamber rifle

How the first 10 bullets from the Bamber rifle were distributed is one of the keys to unraveling what took place inside whf, and gives a clear indication that it was possible for Sheila to have been responsible for shooting her adoptive parents, June and Ralph Bamber by use of these first 10 bullets, as follows:-

(a) the records relating to the recovery of bullet cases, from inside the main bedroom, contained in the original file, SC/688/85 (believed to be nine bullet cases)

versus

(b) the records relating to the recovery of bullet cases, from inside the main bedroom, contained in the new file, SC/786/85 (altered into 13 bullet cases)

At the center of this mystery are two individual police officers, namely, Police Inspector, "Bob" Miller, and Detective Constable, "David" Hammersley - and the contents of a hand written memo, where PI Miller requests that DC Hammersley alters the exhibit references of DRH/1, DRH/2, DRH/3 and DRH/4, into  exhibit references, DRH/50, DRH/51, DRH/52 and DRH/53, which enabled four bullet cases bearing the latter exhibit references to become part of the main bedroom bullet case schedule -  part of the 13 bullets cases allegedly found in the main bedroom, as part of the new file, SC/786/85...

To all intents and purposes, four bullet cases, bearing the exhibit references, DRH/1, DRH/2, DRH/3 and DRH/4, were added to the main bedroom scene, which were not found there originally...

These additional four bullet cases (above) enabled the prosecution at Bambers trial to suggest that Sheila Caffell had been shot twice in the main bedroom, and that Ralph Bamber had been shot four times there, including for the suggestion that he was shot in the jaw, and therefore, he would not have been able to speak to anyone on the telephone, because that bullet smashed and broke his jaw and he would have been unable to speak...

The truth, is completely different, and this is why Essex police, and the CPS refuse to release the contents of the original file, SC/688/85, by a reliance upon Pii rules...

Sheila shot her parents, by use of first 10 bullets in Bamber weapon

It was possible that Sheila shot both her parents by use of the first 10 bullets in the ammunition magazine of the Bamber rifle, and that afterwards, PC Myall, PS Bews and Jeremy, saw June Bamber moving around in the main bedroom, prior to her being shot twice in the head which effectively killed her. It was also possible, and probable, that because the police introduced four bullet cases into the main bedroom scenario, that Ralph was not shot four times in the region of the main bedroom, as alleged, but that he was shot elsewhere in the farmhouse, (identifiable by information contained in the original file, SC/688/85, which denotes where the four bullet cases, DRH/1, DRH/2, DRH/3 and DRH/4, which have been added to the bedroom scenario, were originally found) and that he did have an opportunity to make a phone call to Jeremy, and the police at 3:26am...

Ralph Bamber could have, and did, make it downstairs, and he did not necessarily have a broken jaw, as alleged, by the prosecutions case, which prevented him from speaking to Jeremy in the circumstances described by Jeremy, at his trial...

June Bamber is shot five times whilst she lay in bed

It seems almost certain, that Sheila shot her mother, June, by use of the first five bullets, which she discharged from the Bamber rifle, and that Sheila must have wrongly presumed her to have been killed - if what Professor Herbert Leon McDonnell concludes in his report about how June laid there on the bed and blood from her wounds saturated the pillow, and how June sat on the edge of the bed for a short while before getting up and walking about the bedroom, which incidentally included June walking back and forth in the region of the bedroom window...

View area in bedroom, where bloodstains, from June Bamber, were found, and which confirm, she walked around in front of the bedroom window, at the following link:-

Whoever shot June Bamber, must have wrongly presumed that they had killed her in bed...

Otherwise, once June sat up on the edge of her bed, as described, by Professor McDonnell, they would have shot her again - the shooter, therefore, had gone elsewhere in pursuit of a different target...

It is my belief, that this other target, was none other than Ralph Bamber, who made it downstairs, and that by use of the kitchen telephone, that Ralph was able to telephone Jeremy, followed by the police, who he called at precisely 3:26am, to alert all parties, to what had been, and was taking place back at the farmhouse (whf)...

Ralph Bamber, was wounded at least once, upstairs in the region of the bedroom

The presence of "O" type blood found on wallpaper on the wall of the main stairs, and similar "O" type blood on the door Jamb leading from the hallway to the kitchen, suggests that Ralph Bamber was wounded at least once, by the time he fled for his life downstairs to the kitchen, where he was able to raise the alarm by telephoning Jeremy, and then the police, at and by 3:26am...

If we exclude four bullet cases, DRH/1, DRH/2, DRH/3 and DRH/4, from being recovered or found in the main bedroom, on the understanding that they were introduced later, in keeping with the handwritten instruction of PI Miller, to DC Hammersley, once the contents of the new file, SC/786/85, were being put together, it means that there would only be one spare unaccounted for bullet case which we could attribute as belonging to only one bullet which was fired at, and which wounded Ralph Bamber, in the bedroom, since the other outstanding bullet case found in the bedroom, must have related to the fatal shot which killed Sheila th ere, at sometime around 8:30am, that morning...

The nine bullet Cases found in the main bedroom

June Bamber - five (5) non fatal wounds, and two (2) fatal wounds
Ralph Bamber - one (1) non fatal wound
Sheila Caffell - One (1)  fatal wound

Of course, if you then introduce four additional bullet cases to the main bedroom scenario, it dramatically alters what could have taken place there - for example, once you introduce four additional bullets cases, it opens up for the possibility that June was shot seven times in the bedroom, Ralph was shot four times in the bedroom, and that Sheila was shot twice in the bedroom...

I choose to believe that only nine (9) bullet cases were found and recovered from the main bedroom, by a reliance on the contents of PI "Bob" Millers handwritten memo (contents) where he instructs DC Hammersley to create room, and an opportunity, for four additional bullet cases, bearing the identifying marks, DRH/1, DRH/2, DRH/3 and DRH/4, to be introduced into the bedroom scenario...

Ralph Bamber, made it downstairs, after only having been shot once, upstairs

The ammunition logistics of this case, in particular, the fact that only nine (9) bullet cases were found in the main bedroom, before PI "Bob" Miller took it upon himself to instruct DC Hammersely to create space and an opportunity so that four additional bullet cases could be introduced into the main bedroom crime scene, and the presence of "O" type blood (which was of the same blood group as Ralph Bamber, and no other adult victim in this case) on wall paper on the main stairs, and the door jamb leading from the main hall to the kitchen, seems to be sufficient enough proof, to confirm that Ralph was wounded once, before he reached the kitchen, and that this wound was associated with one of his hands or arms...

Linked to this matter, is the fact that bloodied finger-marks were found to be present on the edge of the worktop in the region where the telephone handset was off its cradle, and where a quantity of  .22 ammunition (29 Eley LR bullets) was spilled out, alongside...

Not widely reported on, but now known by Bamber and his legal team, was that the police found multiple spots of blood on the kitchen floor directly adjacent to where these bloodied finger-marks were made on the edge of the kitchen worktop, suggestive that someone was bleeding from a wound to that hand, or his arm?

It is necessary to try and discover, which of the victims, who could have got downstairs, was wounded in thier hand, or arm, and since there are only two possible candidates for being this person, and those two candidates, were Ralph and Sheila, it should become obvious that the person who left bloodied finger-marks on the edge of the kitchen worktop, and who dripped multiple spots of blood onto the kitchen floor beneath where this person was stood, could have been, and was only, none other than Ralph Bamber...

Absence of any blood at all, on the handset of the telephone, or upon its cradle, suggests that whoever handled the telephone, was not injured on one hand, or that other arm?

Bearing all these features in mind, then of course, it would have been possible, for Ralph Bamber to have made the telephone call to Jeremy, which Jeremy has always maintained he received from his father at the farm. Additionally, it would now seem almost as certain, that Ralph Bamber also made a call to the police, alerting them to what was, and which had been taking place inside the farmhouse, prior to the occupants of CA07 (police) being dispatched to the scene, by 3:35am,  before Jeremy himself contacted the police at 3:36am, to alert the police to the telephone call he had previously received from his father, who alerted Jeremy to what was taking place at the farmhouse...

If Ralph made the call to Jeremy, and the police at 3:26am, then of course by that stage, Ralph had not yet been shot in the jaw, nor was he unable to talk to anyone at all, contrary to what was suggested at the time of Bambers trial by the prosecutions case...

Ralph must therefore, have been shot a further three (3) times non fatally, and four (4) times fatally at some point after Ralph made the call to Jeremy, and to the police at 3:26am...

Nobody can say, with a degree of certainty, that these additional three (3) non fatal shots, or the four (4) fatal shots, which killed Ralph in the kitchen, took place, or were inflicted, before, or after the arrival of the occupants of CA07, and Jeremy, at the scene around 3:52am?

But it seems odds on, that June Bamber was still very much alive in the upstairs bedroom, because she was the person who the police and Bamber saw walking in front of the bedroom window at around 4am, which caused them to race from the grounds back to the patrol car which was parked up in Pages Lane, and to pass a message to the control room requesting that the firearms team be deployed to the scene as soon as possible...

Still four (4) bullets in ammunition magazine of Bamber rifle by this stage

If we accept that Ralph Bamber made it to the telephone, and that he was able to make the call to Jeremy, and to the police, by 3:26am, then of course, there was still four live bullets in the ammunition magazine of the Bamber rifle, which by circumstance, needed to be discharged at some stage in the proceedings...

Pathologist confirms, that Ralph was shot eight times, of which four (4) were non fatal wounds, and four (4) were fatal wounds

If Sheila discharged all these outstanding bullets into Ralph, then of course, by the time she emptied the weapon so that there was no more bullets in it to fire, Ralph would have been dead, because by that stage, Ralph would have been shot five (5) times, with at least one of these four bullets resulting in his death in the kitchen...

By 4am, of course, June Bamber was still very much alive, upstairs in the main bedroom, because she was the silhouetted figure, who was seen by the police, and Jeremy, from the vantage point of the grounds of whf, at about that time. As I say, no-one can be sure whether or not Sheila had shot and killed Ralph in the kitchen during the interim period, between the timing of Ralph's call to the police at 3:26am, and the arrival of the occupants of CA07 to the scene (3:52am), and the sighting of June, by the police, and Jeremy, at around 4am, but if Ralph was still alive by that stage, why didn't he make the police aware of himself?

This leads me to conclude, that by 4am, Ralph had already been shot and killed by Sheila, and that by that stage, all the ten (10)  bullets from the first load of the ammunition magazine, had been discharged and used up, culminating in Ralph being dead in the kitchen, and June upstairs, and badly wounded...

By 4am, Ralph Bamber, was dead in the kitchen, and June Bamber, was seriously wounded, upstairs in the bedroom

I believe there is a very strong case for arguing that by about 4am, the first ten (10) bullets from the Bamber rifle had already been discharged, and that Ralph was dead in the kitchen, with June seriously wounded, upstairs in the main bedroom...

None of these ten (10) bullet cases would have had Sheila's fingerprints upon them, because the magazine of the Bamber rifle was known to have already been loaded up by Jeremy on the evening previously...

It remains possible that there were eleven (11) bullets in the Bamber rifle

Of course, it remains possible that there were in fact, eleven (11) bullets in the Bamber rifle, not ten (10), because another bullet could have been seated in the breach of the weapon, which when added to the ten (10) in the ammunition magazine, would produce a total of eleven (11) bullets. This would mean that Sheila might have shot Ralph five (5) times once she cornered him downstairs in the kitchen, and that by 4am, Ralph was already dead, he having been shot four (4) times non fatally by that stage, and twice fatally in the head...

The eleventh (11) bullet could not have been discharged into June Bamber, upstairs in the main bedroom, by 4am, otherwise she could not have been the silhouetted figure, who was seen by the police, and Jeremy, to be walking about in the bedroom in the region of the bedroom window, as outlined previously, which caused the police to race back to the patrol car (CA07) to request that the firearms team be deployed to the scene...

In my view, if there was an eleventh (11) bullet in the Bamber weapon, it would have had to be discharged into Ralph Bamber, as outlined, and described...

Thus, according to the evidence, it would be necessary, thereafter, to account for the other fourteen (14) or fifth-teen (15) bullets, used in the shootings. It would be no secret, that if Sheila loaded these fourteen (14) or fifth-teen (15, additional bullets into the magazine of the Bamber rifle, that there was a very good chance that lead deposit and oils from the handling of such bullets would have become transferred onto the fingers of her hands, as a result of loading these into the ammunition magazine of the Bamber rifle...

But, a question mark hangs over whether or not, the Bamber rifle fired all of these additional fourteen (14) or fifth-teen (15) bullets, because five (5) of the bullet entry wounds, were 1/2 inch diameter, and could not possibly have been made by the Bamber .22 rifle, which produces entry wounds with about 1/4 inch diameter, depending upon how far away the bullet was fired from, and the angle at which it was fired, and the type of skin it punctured upon entering the body...

According to the Pathologists report, Ralph Bamber, had three (3) such 1/2 inch diameter bullet entry wounds, and June Bamber, had two...

In addition, we now know that the police substituted one of the two bullets (PV/20) which the pathologist removed from Sheila's neck, during his autopsy on 7th August 1985 - which produces an element of suspicion, surrounding whether or not, Sheila was shot twice, by use of the Bamber?

For the time being, therefore, the six (6) bullets which were discharged into the bodies of Ralph, June and Sheila, above, must be regarded as not having been fired via the Bamber rifle...

This leaves eight (8), or nine (9) other bullets to be accounted for, which could have been loaded by Sheila, and fired by use of the Bamber rifle - which should contain Sheila's fingerprints. The other five (5) or six (6) could have been fired by use of a different weapon, but these could technically have all been handled by Sheila, and could also contain her fingerprints...

The bottom line, then, is that there could potentially have been fourteen (14) or fifth-teen (15) bullets which were technically handled by Sheila during the shootings...

Exhibit MDF/100 - fourteen (14) bullet cases, Mystery at the center of the the shootings

Jeremy found out recently, that the Lab' have got fourteen (14) bullet cases as exhibits, under an exhibit reference of MDF/100. Nothing is known about these fourteen (14) bullet cases, only that they are linked in some way to the shootings at whf...

There exists another exhibit, bearing the exhibit reference MDF/1, which relates to a cloth pull through of the Bamber rifle...

There is absolutely no records of any other exhibits bearing the exhibit references, MDF/2 to MDF/99, conclusively, which is very odd...

These fourteen bullet cases (MDF/100) could be the original fourteen (14) bullet cases recovered from the crime scene, which were fired from a different gun during the shootings, which became part of a substitution process, to make out a false case for there only having been one weapon used in the shootings, that weapon being the Bamber rifle...

According to the police, all the crime scene ammunition was destroyed in 1996, but it may be possible that fourteen of the destroyed bullet cases, were not the original bullet cases recovered from the scene. These fourteen (14) bullet cases (MDF/100) could have been the original bullet cases which were fingerprinted with a view to identifying the person who loaded them into the gun which fired them...

The batch of crime scene ammunition was fingerprinted by DI Cook (SOC), on 15th August 1985, at Sandrich. If the Bamber rifle was already preloaded with ten (10) or eleven (11) bullets, the police would only have been interested in the fingerprints they found on fourteen (14) or fifth-teen (15) of the other bullet cases, and exhibit MDF/100 seems to fit the bill, perfectly - is exhibit MDF/100 the bullet cases which were fingerprinted with this in mind?

Who's fingerprints if any, were found on the fourteen (14) bullet cases, which form part and parcel of MDF/100?
