I shall start this thread off by posting up one of hundreds of letters which Jeremy Bamber wrote to me at a time when I was in his favour (2009):-

Letter, Dated, 4th February 2009...

So, there we have it, Essex police manipulating the total numbers of crime scene photographs that were taken at the scene on the first morning of the police investigation. In a nutshell, 223 or so photographs disclosed out of 581 by the time of Jeremy's October 1986 Chelmsford Crown Court Trial...

By the time of the 2002 appeal hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice, more photographs emerged from the files of Essex police!

By 2007 a total of 178 more photographs were disclosed than had been at the aforementioned 2002 appeal...

And by that stage (2007) there were still a further 210 negatives which had never been disclosed...

A simple piece of arithmetic establishes therefore, that at the time of the 1986 trial around 223 photographs were disclosed, that by 2007 a total of 401 photographs had been disclosed, leaving a further 210 negatives of photographs also taken at the scene at the material time, as still having not yet been disclosed to the defence...

What this tells me, is that Essex police must have taken additional photographs at the scene during mid September 1985, because if by 2007 a total of 401 photographs had been disclosed, and there had in fact been a total of 581 photographs taken at the crime scene during the first two days of the police investigation, meaning that as of 2007 there still had not been disclosed 180 photographs hel by Essex police (401 + 180 = 581...

An additional 210 negatives which related to undeveloped photographs establishes that in fact Essex police had taken 581 photographs, plus 210 further images which for one reason of another were not developed, producing a grand total of 981 captured images...

In my opinion, there was no way that PC Bird (2nd team of SOCO) could possibly have taken all 981 photographs inside the farmhouse between around 11.00am and 1.15pm, on th very first morning of the police investigation...

The photographic duties of PC Bird (SOCO) lasted from around 11.00am until about 1.15pm, which equates to 135 minutes...

How could PC Bird have taken all 981 crime scene photographs inside the farmhouse in only 135 minutes?

The simple truth is that he hadn't, and that he didn't...

Bear in mind, also that the jury were not informed during the course of the trial, that there was major problems with the number of photographs which had been taken, or that a further 388 photographs had deliberately been withheld by ACC Peter Simpson...

In my opinion, Essex police chose to deliberately withhold a total of 388 crime scene photographs which were all capable of establishing that it was the police inside the farmhouse who had moved the body and that they had brought the said rifle to Sheila Caffells body to create an impression that she might have taken her own life...

  Police documents confirm that the police took a total of 8 photographs inside the all important gun cupboard on the first morning of the police investigation - and so why didn't the police find the silencer there in the cupboard on that first morning?

  Police documents confirm that the police took a total of 8 photographs inside the all important gun cupboard on the first morning of the police investigation - and so why didn't the police find the silencer there in the cupboard on that first morning?

Ron Cook told the COLP investigators in 1991, that the police had looked into the gun cupboard in the downstairs office known at the den, and he added that if he or his officers (DS Davidson, DC Hammersley and PC Bird) had seen or found a silencer in that cupboard at that time that the police would have taken it for takings sake - but, at the trial at Chelmsford Crown Court in October 1986, there was no mention of the search of the gun cupboard on the first morning of the police investigation except to say that a 12 bore shotgun had been removed from it and stood against the wall of the downstairs office (the den)...

The problem here, was not helped because of the manner with which the first team of SOCO (DC Henderson and DC Oakey) who were also present at the scene on the first morning of the police investigation had been deliberately abstracted from having had any involvement at the crime scene until much later (DC Oakey in September 1985)...

How come the police did not see or find the silencer that must have been inside the gun cupboard when Cook and his team searched the gun cupboard, and in particular, an absence of any silencer when PC Bird took the all important 8 photographs of the contents of that gun cupboard?

The next time we hear about the silencer supposedly being found in that very same gun cupboard, comes from the relatives, who claimed that David Boutflour found 'it' in that gun cupboard on the 10th August 1985? This raises 'a red flag' which no-one should ignore at peril of being taken in by the falsified claim that Jeremy the killer had supposedly made a blunder by removing the silencer after he had shot and killed off everyone including his sister Sheila, and that he had taken it all the way downstairs to conceal it in that gun cupboard. The point being as relied upon during the trial by the prosecutions case, that because Sheila's blood had been found to be present inside the silencer and the silencer had been found in the gun cupboard in the downstairs office, it would have been impossible for Sheila to have been responsible for having done this because as soon as the second shot to her neck had been inflicted death had followed instantaneously. The only person who could have placed that contaminated silencer there was her murderer...

But...

According to Cook who told the COLP investigators that had they seen or found a silencer in that cupboard when it was searched that 'it' would have been taken as an exhibit for takings sake!

Then, of course, there are the 8 photographs which PC Bird took of the contents of that gun cupboard in the downstairs office - obviously no silencer present inside that gun cupboard on the first morning of the police investigation (7th August 1985), since, had there been, 'it' would have been taken for takings sake...

Moreover, you can rest assured that had the silencer been part and parcel of the gun cupboards contents at the time that PC Bird had taken those all important 8 photographs of the contents of that cupboard, that the prosecution would have relied upon such a photograph to confirm and to prove that this was where thee silencer which had been contaminated with Sheila's blood and the red paint from the scratched kitchen aga in the kitchen had been placed by the killer...

No such photograph was produced or disclosed, because none existed showing a silencer there in that gun cupboard on that first morning of the police investigation...

Based upon research carried out by myself covering three decades of analysis, I can report that the silencer did not get placed into that gun cupboard until the evening of the 9th August 1985, when Jones and Jones returned to the scene to hand the farmhouse keys back to the relatives, Ann and Peter Eaton...

That on 'this occasion' that 'Peter Eaton put a gun back' inside the farmhouse!

Identifying  'the gun' that Peter Eaton returned to the farmhouse on the evening of the 9th August 1985, raises very serious and troublesome consequences - for example, the identity of 'that' gun?

Where had that gun been prior to the evening of the 9th August 1985, when Peter Eaton returned it to the farmhouse?

Before I provide insight into that matter, also be aware that his wife Ann Eaton had witnessed the fact that her husband had 'returned the gun' to the farmhouse on that occasion, because she made a handwritten note about this! Oddly enough, Peter Eaton himself makes no mention in any witness statement made by him, or which had been made in his name to the fact that on the evening of the 9th August 1985 that he had returned a gun to the farmhouse!

Rest assured therefore, that Peter Eaton must have had something to do with the emergence of the silencer in the gun cupboard in the downstairs office known as the den, in time for his brother in law, David Boutflour to discover it there on the following day (the 10th August 1985)!

Please bear this in mind, because if the murderer placed the silencer in the gun cupboard, and turns out to be the truth, then of course the murderer of Sheila Caffell could not possibly have been Jeremy Bamber, the killer had to be either Peter Eaton, or the police themselves...
