Why did Jeremy remain reticent that he called the police MUCH earlier than West's timings? Not only argued it but was willing to take him to court over it. This is just a rehash of what has gone before, argued in a  slightly different way - it has ZERO chance of convincing a court.

Too right they will, nugs!! SUCH a shame I can't persuade those who believe he's innocent to meet me at his cottage. There's NO way on God's earth that Jeremy -even fully dressed which he probably was- could have left his house and driven at 30 miles per hour -which we know he did- stop to put a jumper on and reach WHF at the time he's said to have arrived there.

I don't recall that Jeremy asked Julie for advice. He stated that he "rang to hear a friendly voice"? I doubt, even if she'd contributed much to the conversation, that her tone would have been particularly friendly.
Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Caroline on October 07, 2019, 07:26:PM
Definitive proof? The proof seems to be a written time of 3:37 written on a log, it's 'supposed' to prove that Jeremy Bamber was still on the phone talking to Weest at this time. Lets ignore the FACT that the word APPROX has been written underneath it and that a previous entry has been scrubbed out. I think you can just make out that the crossed out time states 03:45 or would Bill and the CT like to argue that he was still on the phone at 03:45?  ;D ;D I think others may notice these stumbling  blocks because basically, YOU CAN'T MISS THEM!  ::)

Based on my calculations he was driving at at average of 31mph. Which happens to coincide with Bews estimate of 30mph.

In Bills scenario Jeremy gets in the car ten minutes later. Jeremy has to make up for that ten mins with serious speeding. Bews was (by my calculations) going at around 45mph. Its not even possible for Bews to drive past him.

Because she was too spaced out to bother speaking hence telling JB to get back to bed.

But it's not about Julie, is it? It wasn't Julie who committed murder. The post said Jeremy only rang her to seek advice but it wasn't something Jeremy ever claimed he did. It's also the case that if Julie said very little he had all the time in the world to ask advice. It seems to me that the conversation was all about Jeremy giving her information. SO unconcerned was he that he didn't even tell her that Sheila -allegedly- had a gun. Just for the record, I don't know that I'd be happy to be dragged out of bed at silly o'clock. What was she supposed to do with the information?

And I reiterate. IF those timings are correct, Jeremy did NOT have time to get dressed, get into his car, drive at around 30mph, stop to put on a jumper, and get to WHF at the time he's reported to have arrived.

Eh?  ;D ;D - Jeremy timed HIS call to West as lasting 11 mins - the CT are suggesting Jeremy didn't call the police until 03:36 not 03:26! 03:36 + 11 mins is 03:47, so unless Scotty beamed him over to WHF the whole this is just nutty!

Of course they could nugs but when you see something written by an officer you assume it's correct and by West writing that time down tells everyone that he was in conversation with JB at that specific time while repeating the words of the caller to one of his colleagues.
He obviously misfired when writing the first time down then scribbled it out. Why, when the clock was under his nose ? He couldn't even get that right first time.

Lookout, that doesn't make sense but you can keep posting it if you like.

The claim is that Jeremy called the police at 03:36. He said he was on the phone for 11 mins, that would take the time up to 03:47 and that is NOT enough time for him to have arrived at the scene when he said he did!

Ha, ha!!!! Fantastic point Adam - that blows the WHOLE  thing out of the water. Nevil can't have phoned West, he would definitely called 999 at that point and if he had, he wouldn't have got through to West.

Well, having babbled on about it not being possible to prove a negative, MAYBE it is!!!! IF Nevill had dialed 999 he wouldn't, as you say, have got through to a police station, but to an emergency call centre who'd have put the call through to the appropriate emergency service. UNless that person was in on the "let's frame Jeremy" thing, WHY would they have kept silent about receiving Nevill's call?

3:22am Control room

JB: You’ve got to help me, my father has just phoned me saying ‘please come over, your
sister has gone crazy and has the gun’ then the phone went dead. My father sounded
terrified, I don’t think he was kidding.

West: Where does your father live?

JB: White House farm Tolleshunt D'arcy.

West: Does your sister have access to any guns?

JB: Yes my father has a collection of 12 bores and 4.10s and .22 rifles. Look my sister has a
history of mental illness. You’ve got to help me.

West: Hold the line please, I’ll contact our information room and find out where the nearest
unit is.


3:26am Information room

"I received a telephone call on the internal line. The officer at the other end announced
himself as PC 1990 at Chelmsford.

Mr Bamber was worried about a phone call that he had received from his father at
Tolleshunt D'arcy. I cannot remember the direct speech that was used but I was informed
that the telephone call had been received from Mr Bamber and that Mr Bamber's daughter
had gone berserk and had taken one of his guns and that the line had gone dead.

PC 1990 also informed me that Mr BAMBER Junior had stated that there was a collection of
guns at the house. I recorded these as being Shotguns and 410's."

Mmm. "........Look, when my father phoned me he sounded terrified..........." But Jeremy claimed he didn't think the call was urgent and he didn't think it was worth calling 999 because it wouldn't have got them there any faster, yet here we have him berating West for keeping him waiting?

That's not what he allegedly said. According to Bews he asked Jeremy "Well why didn't you dial 999 instead of trying two police stations?" and Jeremy replied "I didn't think it would make any difference of how quickly you got here, I don't know how your system works".

David can you remind us how long it took Jeremy Bamber in an emergency situation to telephone Police of any description from the time he purportedly received a call from his father requesting assistance?

The fact stands that despite his father sounding terrified, Jeremy wasted MORE time by diddling his way through a telephone directory making abortive calls, but when questioned, claimed that he didn't think it was urgent. Frankly, I don't buy "I didn't think it would make any difference................I don't know how your system works". I doubt that anyone else, passed junior school age, would buy it, either.

It must be only me who imagines that JB had been " playing for time " while thinking the worst of what could be going on at WHF. He'd been scared ! This would have been the main reason for his dithering around and flicking through pages of the directory.

When such a call comes to you in the early hours it takes a few minutes to gather your senses and because JB had had a full day harvesting he'd have been dead beat and would have gone into a deep sleep.
I at least understand these things knowing that not everyone leaps around at that time of the morning. It would have taken time for his father's call to register with him as it's not every day someone gets such a call, and to try and get your head around that type of call which came " out of the blue " to JB would take some time to sink in---it would with anyone. I can understand his situation at the time getting a call like that when you least expect it.

You make a good case lookout but it's the issue with the telephone directory which really implicates him because it shows his brain is functioning in his mendacious scenario and is not frozen by being overwhelmed.

Of course the real reason many of us suspect for the lapse of time was that he was busying himself with cleaning up and preparing himself for the reverberations of his actions.

The whole narrative of him taking to long to call the police is incorrect anyway. Because it implies that a call from WHF actually happened and the argument being the duration of time it took him to call the police is is suspicious. That's illogical because if the the call from Nevill happened it don't matter how long it took JB to call the police.

If the call from Nevil never happened. Then there was no reaction time. He created a time gap for no apparent reason. Because he could have made Nevill call happen when ever he wanted to say it happened. And the reason why would make no difference to the premise regardless.

But Lookout, according to what you've previously said, Jeremy was more than used to Sheila's little quirkies. I believe you've previously said he sometimes helped Nevill with her -although I could never work out when this might have been. It also remains that Jeremy had lived a very independent life and if rumours are true he wasn't too scared to nick watches when he was abroad. The Jeremy most people -well, those who knew him pre murders- certainly was neither a scaredy cat nor the wimp you portray him as being. He probably wasn't afraid of anything until the guilty verdict came back and the life sentence was passed.

I'm not so much putting importance on the length of time it took him to make the call, I'm talking about his lack of response to what were his father's alleged feelings. "He sounded terrified". Lookout has him as a quivering mess. I don't believe the call happened so Jeremy didn't need to try to work out what the appropriate responses would be to such a call which is probably why his statements regarding it are contradictory. I think you're correct in that he created a time gap for no reason and he wasn't entirely certain which was the best way to go about it. It's almost like having an almost empty car park. It takes longer to decide where is the best place to park than it does when there's only one parking space.

He had to create the time gap because he was busy cleaning himself up, taking a shower and changing out of his clothes.

That's a  good point, however, before calling the police, he called Julie and he looked up the station number - those are the reasons for the time gap. Remember the initial time he gave for calling the police was much earlier than is being suggested here.

Of course he later realised that calling Julie first might sound odd, so he said he called her after - he also told me this (which I don't believe). Adding this to what the CT are claiming would extend the time even further.

I'd say it's only natural that you'd think on those lines where he'd be cleaning and preparing because of your opposing views and because of my own personal views I tend to see things from a less accusatory point of view giving him the benefit of the doubt under the present circumstances at the time.

Maybe not in his mind - but in reality.

Jeremy made a balls up when he called Julie first, not only did it cause a delay between the time he said the call from his father occurred and his call to the police - but such a delay that would need explaining, but it caused him to stumble when recalling events - hence why sometimes he called Julie first and at other times, he called the police first. I wonder when the CT will fit in the call to Julie - given that Bill hasn't even included it and Jeremy is still saying he called her after the police. None of it adds up!

Its often been said that Jeremy being unable to call Nevil back is because Nevil had began making a call to the police. However if Nevill left the phone off the hook, Jeremy would need to keep his phone on the hook for two minutes in order to be disengaged and call out again.

"I understand that a question had been asked as follows: If caller A from Tollesbury had phoned caller B at Goldhanger and during the course of the call, caller A had placed the receiver down, but not on the hook. Would caller B he able to dial out again. The basic answer to this question is yes caller B could call out again on his line provided caller. B had replaced his, receiver on the hook for a continuous period of 1-2 minutes. There is no exact period of time up to 2 minutes.

I must stress that the period must be continuous. If caller B picked up the receiver say for a moment before the 'force-release' period had ended then the 'force release' period would begin again. The 'force release' period is up to 2 minutes although I cannot state what the minimum period is. "


Maybe Bews was right. Maybe Jeremy did call Whitman police station. He didn't get through because his own line was still engaged. And once he found the number for Chelmsford those two minutes were up. And hence got through.

Maybe Bews was right. Maybe Jeremy did call Whitman police station. He didn't get through because his own line was still engaged. And once he found the number for Chelmsford those two minutes were up. And hence got through.

But given that he said none of that, not even when the expert witness explained what would happen, we can be pretty sure, it didn't.

A call would end the minute the button was depressed either manually or by replacing the cradle, then you can go straight ahead and make another call.

Not if the person who called you hadn't replaced the receiver.

Then you obviously wouldn't be able to ring them back but it wouldn't stop you from replacing the receiver and ringing someone else. Because one number is unobtainable doesn't render your phone useless.

Because the receiver hadn't been replaced would have been the time that JB rang EP.

Phones back then were operator operated and if the phone was left off the hook you'd hear the voice of the operator telling you to replace it so as long as that phone had been left that way the line remained open to the operator. If left long enough some phones would automatically put through an emergency call or would be disabled after a long drawn-out noise

I thought it had long been established that there wasn't a manual exchange in 1985. My great aunt lived in Tollesbury and I can recall that my mother could ask an operator to connect her with the Tollesbury number. After it went automatic, she couldn't manage it so I had to dial the number using the newly installed Maldon code which was, I believe, at the time, 1621 which has since been prefixed by 0.

I can understand someone new to the case thinking there were two calls - but it doesn't take long to unravel it. Most people thought that the 'supposed' newly discovered log was the one that seems to refer to Nevil but it was the log with Jeremy's details. In fact, I think it was The Daily Mail that published an article on the subject and confused the two logs. I can understand why someone reading that and being told that a 'new' log was discovered detailing a  call from Nevil, would buy into it.

How can something be 'undisputed' when it very much IS 'disputed'?  ;D ;D ;D

Even if AE is believed, "timed the police action" is not the same thing as "timed the length of his call to Julie", which is what Jane thought she had read.

I agree with David1819. The sentence in full states "Jeremy told the police that he had timed the police action to his call as 11 minutes by checking his watch." Even if Ann Eaton thought he said something like that, it doesn't mean that Jeremy said that the duration of any call was 11 minutes. There's nothing to indicate when he checked his watch.

Jeremy may well have remarked to Pc West that he had been "some time", but that would obviously mean "longer than he expected", not that he had been timing precisely how long he was on hold for.

The examination of Nevill Bamber's body also revealed black eyes and a broken nose, linear bruising to the cheeks, lacerations to the head, linear type bruising to the right forearm, bruising to the left wrist and forearm and three circular burn type marks to the back. The linear marks were consistent with Mr Bamber having been struck with a long blunt object, possibly a gun.

The fact is he had an issue about time on hold or on the whole duration of the call. AE's statement supports this.

Well if the " terrified " bit referred to " over-egging " there'd have been no need for a 999 call, so he ,NB, was either terrified or he wasn't. What do you think the call sounded like ? Always supposing that you believed that there was a call-----most don't.

f course he doesn't believe there was a call, he thinks Bamber is guilty so the terrified aspect is moot! He didn't dial 999 because there was no emergency!

But it's not about what WE, in the here and now, think. It's about how Jeremy reacted to an alleged -and frantic- call from his father at silly o'clock, telling him Sheila had gone mad and got hold of a gun. Jeremy, it seems, sees no urgency in the situation -didn't he state as much- do calmly diddles his way through a few of the local police stations, making abortive calls, phones Julie, then phones the police, at which point he changes his mind and tells them his father had sounded terrified. Did he not later tell someone that it was possible that his father had already been shot?!!!! But it wasn't urgent!!!

I don't think so. According to Pc West, Jeremy told him that his father sounded terrified, but I don't think this was mentioned or alluded to in any way by Jeremy in his statements or interviews. However, I haven't checked whether any other police officer that Jeremy spoke to (at WHF, for example) said that Jeremy mentioned this to them.

This supports the fact that Jeremy made his call to the police at 3.36am, and not 3.26am..

If Jeremy was on the phone talking to the police for about 5 minutes or so, his call would have been terminated at about 3.41am, leaving him 7 minutes or so to get himself to the farmhouse, and arriving there by 3.48am..

Ground 4 – timing of telephone call to Julie Mugford 289.

Ground 4 relates to the first telephone call made by the appellant to Julie Mugford on the night of the killing. The prosecution contended at trial that this preceded the telephone call to the police, whilst the appellant asserted that it was made after he had telephoned the police and before he left home to go to the farmhouse.

It has to be said that whichever version is right, it was remarkable that the appellant made such a call. On his own version he had just received a dramatic plea for help from his father, he had rung the police and had been asked to go to meet officers at the farm.

Yet he delayed for long enough to make a telephone call to someone many miles away, who could not possibly help in the situation. However, it clearly was even less likely that he would have telephoned before he rang the police and if the call was shortly after 3 a.m. it was wholly inconsistent with his account and only consistent with the account of Julie Mugford as to the nature of that call.

---------

Jeremy's call to Julie has always been very damaging together with his 'no comments' when interviewed about it. Although unlike Nevill's two phone calls, it did happen.

West had said all along that the call by JB to West was at 03.36 with the call prior to 03.26 had to be the call from Nevill.

In the relevant part of AE's statement, as already discussed, it says that Jeremy told the police that he had timed the police action to his call as 11 minutes by checking his watch. However, timing the police action isn't the same thing as timing the duration of his call. This does, by the way, indicate that Jeremy had dressed and put his watch on prior to making his call to the police rather than after calling the police.

The statement also asserts that one of the police officers told AE that June Bamber and Sheila Bamber were both on the bed shot with Sheila Bamber having a bible on her chest with the gun beside her.

What do you make of that?

Agreed, but even if her assertion about Jeremy were correct, it doesn't imply the Jeremy's telephone call to Pc West took 11 minutes. Even the prosecution accepted Pc West's assertions at trial that he dealt with Jeremy's call quickly, but they suggested his written note of the time when Jeremy rang him was a mistake. The mistake wasn't attributed to an incorrect clock, as the clock had been checked later and found to be working correctly.

Pc West noted that car CA7 was "at scene" at 03:50, which was in rough agreement with Bonnett's note of 03:48 as the arrival time of the same car, but these times are too late to fit with any guilty scenario unless the police response was incredibly slow, which isn't what the prosecution suggested.

I can find nothing in West's trial testimony that said the response was quick.
When asked how long he had taken [to contact the police HQ and the police at Witham while Jeremy was on hold], he said it was about 3 minutes. Shortly after saying that, he said that he had told Jeremy to go to his father's house and wait for police officers there, and that a unit from Witham was attending and wouldn't take long. Pc West was asked a second time about this and replied "Police officers had already been sent when I spoke to him." He was later asked how long his initial conversation with Jeremy had taken, and replied "Well, it is difficult to ascribe times but perhaps a minute at most. It is — a minute is an awfully long time." He was also asked "How long do you really think it was then, a minute or maybe more?" and replied "Mo, I would say that a minute would more than cover the conversation we had initially."

Overall, the above amounts to Pc West saying that his own call-handling was so quick that within about 4 minutes from when Jeremy called him, the police at Witham had been told to go to WHF.

No PC West stated that EACH of the two calls he made while Jeremy was on hold lasted approximately 3 minutes. 3x2 = 6. So west thinks its approx 6 mins which is not far from my own calculation of 8 mins.

Anyway what is the point you are trying to make here? If its Nevill calling the police this is not going to get you anywhere.

The calls logs and statements all show one telephone call. If you want to prove Nevills calls to the police you must unearth a whole new set of phone logs and witness statements from different phone operators not yet made public.

The calls logs and statements all show one telephone call. If you want to prove Nevills calls to the police you must unearth a whole new set of phone logs and witness statements from different phone operators not yet made public.

Then add the time he spoke with Jeremy.

It's not for an unknown reason, 11 minutes is what AE stated Jeremy claimed when interviewed on the morning after the murders. I posted that days ago - but 11 minutes seems reasonable to me, given what happened during the call.

As I understand it, what's been claimed by Bill Robertson is that Jeremy called the police at 03.36 and PC West put Jeremy on hold at about 03.37 when he called Witham police station. Leaving aside the question of whether this happened or not, the theory can't be refuted by an appeal to the testimony of PC West, since the claim is being made that West in his testimony was lying and that he was involved in a police cover up.

If the police wanted to cover up the fact that Nevill called the police at slightly before 03.26 and that it was Nevill who was put on hold by West, when the latter called Bonnett at headquarters, then they would naturally be trying their best to make it seem like Jeremy's call lasted for longer than it did, if they wanted people to believe that Jeremy called at 03.24 and not at 03.36.

One thing which does not seem to have been addressed on this thread is an explanation of the timing of West's call to Witham at 03.37, where he tells the officer receiving the call that he has Bamber on hold. It is perfectly consistent with Jeremy calling at 03.36

PC West did not record the fact that he called Witham twice, once at 03.30 and again at 03.37 in his statements. There were definitely two calls since the first was by radio link and the second by telephone.

This firstly, of course, is presupposing Nevill was a stupid as Jeremy. Odd, don't you think that two people from the same family, when faced with someone going berserk with a gun, would waste time looking up and calling, with all those extra digits, a local police station, when there was the 999 facility. Then comes the obvious question WHY? Jeremy, at that time, wasn't a suspect. There was no reason for anything to be covered up.

Chelmsford was over 21 miles away.

Jeremy phoned Chelmsford as it gave him the best chance of being picked up at home by the police. The police car journey went near his home & even overtook Jeremy's car on the way to WHF. 

Being over 21 miles away, also gave Jeremy more time at home to get himself together.  He even had time to phone Julie. To hear a friendly voice.

Strobe I also understand that West's call was being relayed as he was on the phone to Jeremy at the same time. This is where the mix-up all started, though why EP didn't own up to the two calls of " Mr Bambers " I'll never know as initially it began as a genuine mistake and then continued to snowball all owing to the mix-up in the phone-calls coming from 2 Mr Bambers. What followed from then on was abysmal.

So you really believe that the pair of them, father and son would be stupid enough, given the severity of the situation, to look up the number of a local police station, wasting precious time with extra digits, when the 999 facility would have done the job much faster?

What's it to me? Interesting question, Lookout, and the right one. ONE of the reasons I believed he was innocent -and a very personal and emotional one- was because he was adopted. I simply couldn't bring myself to believe that someone who'd been adopted would do such a thing. It was probably one of the reasons I clung to my belief in his innocence for as long as I did. Once the suspicions crept in I found myself feeling very let down by him, and furious, too. It was rather a case of how DARE he! It doesn't matter HOW bad it gets, you don't kill them, you stay with it. I had to, why shouldn't you?

I've been determined to see this through because of wrongful imprisonment and blame for something he didn't do. Adoptees don't kill unless they happen to be like Sheila had been from day one and that was passed around like a parcel after already suffering separation and attachment disorders. Even with June there was a steady stream of people who had to care for the baby Sheila when June was ill, then add together the way of life when she was growing up and all the rest of it into her teens and adulthood. Not exactly the life for a beautiful girl who got no encouragement from her mother then had the dirty done on her by her husband when they first married. Then her mental illness. It was never going to end well.

And all the time everyone's focus was on Sheila, Jeremy's needs were put on hold. Sheila got to choose what she did. Jeremy didn't -certainly he was allowed (took) a couple of years out, probably in the hope he'd have sown his wild ones and come back content with sewing domestic ones, but from then on, his life was planned- his future was the one they'd laid out for him, in farming. Someone less inclined towards farming might have been difficult to find but it seems not to have been noticed.

Going back to his childhood, no sooner had he been told of his adoption, than he was being sent away to boarding school. How much more proof did a small boy need to prove to him that he wasn't good enough to be kept at home. Interesting that by the time he realized there was no escape, he did everything  possible NOT to be there and by his own admission had only lived there for 3 months after his two years of globe trotting.

 Whilst Sheila's problems were given expression, Jeremy was internalizing his. I wonder how often he voiced his dissatisfaction at Sheila's freedom to do what she wanted whilst he was chained to a job he wasn't suited to. For one with so much invested interest in him, I fail to see how you, too, can possibly overlook the damage inflicted on him, and your belief that he came out of it, unscathed and emotionally sound.

An incisive post Jane. If I may also speculate that he blamed his parents for Suzette's miscarriages, then to have to endure Sheila and her children-not one but two with such delightful personalities and looks it was just too much to bear. The remark she made that "all people must be killed" must have stuck in his mind, along with the rankling stipulation in Nevill's will that his son would only inherit if he was farming at the time of his death, the temptation was to finalize everything that one morning and move on.

Thank-you, Steve. It's very possible he did. Once the floodgates of realization begin to open, there's no closing them and the way is clear for us to find a home for all our hurts and rejections. The message in Nevill's will couldn't have made it more clear to him that there actually WASN'T any inheritance for him. If he wanted it, he'd have to work for it. Naturally, Sheila, without lifting a finger, and the boys' futures had been catered for.

If he had said he received a call from Nevill, he'd have been cross examined on it and Bamber could never havre been convicted. Sorry Lookout, but after all this time, his can you not know this?

As DS Ainsley stated in a closing letter referring to West :
 I quote " In addition he gave the appearance of not knowing his evidence and had to be reminded by defence council of the content of his statement.
Overall his outward appearance was spoiled by his lack of respect for the court and his obvious lack of preparation for the occasion ", unquote.

But he didn't, despite "his lack of preparation for the occasion" say he'd received a call from Nevill.

A lot, considering that a DS stated he was ill-prepared for a huge investigation, meaning that he would and did bungle his way through in a slipshod manner. If someone was doing a job using the wrong tools then it would end in a mess wouldn't it ?
 West would have, or rather DID speak to both men but got lost along the way because they happened to have been 2 Mr Bambers ! He obviously couldn't get his head around it because the calls came from different directions and not just the one address.

https://www.jeremy-bamber.co.uk/new-call-logs-evidence-oct-2019 (https://www.jeremy-bamber.co.uk/new-call-logs-evidence-oct-2019)
Now undisputed sequence of phone calls and events proving that Jeremy is innocent.

03:23 approximately – phone call from Nevill Bamber to PC 1990 West at Chelmsford Town (CD)
03:26 call from PC West to Malcolm Bonnet – West passed on information from Nevill to Bonnet
03:25 - 03:30 Jeremy, alerted by a phone call from his father, tried to call Julie Mugford for advice, and finally roused her from bed at 03:30; spoke to her for 2-3 minutes.
03:30 PC West in radio conversation with PC Saxby at Witham – but Saxby and colleagues did not leave immediately to go to WHF
03:35 approximately – Jeremy Bamber telephoned PC West
03:36 PC West in conversation with Jeremy Bamber
03:37 PC West to PC Myall at Witham Police Station by telephone – Jeremy on-hold
03:39 PC West asked Jeremy to go to  WHF and tells him to meet police officers there
03:40 approximately – CA7 departs Witham to WHF

End of story - Jeremy Bamber is innocent.

When Saxby was in radio contact with West at 03.30, was this while he was out on (or returning from) patrol with Bews and Myall?

I very much doubt his legal team will show their hand.  We may only be seeing titbits presently, as the CCRC previously expressed a disdain for use of the media regarding the gun tests.  Funnily enough I can remember thinking that Kier Starmer was a w***ker when he oversaw the CCRC response to Jeremy's application.  Now I've seen Starmer in his latest incarnation - I can confirm my initial thoughts were correct. 

I was initially unimpressed with the Dickinson document.  But arguably, it is Myall corroborating West.

They really made a mistake backing that particular gem because Bamber himself has previously called West a liar, accusing him of altering the log from 03:26 - 03:36. Now they're arguing he did call at 03:36. \the CCRC will be aware of his earlier claim. If they have gone to the press with it, they must have been impressed. Makes you wonder if they really know all of the facts?

But at some point they weren't there?  Is this not why West had to resort to using personal radio link?  As Bews was 'out on a couple of PC's'.  Was Bews with Saxby and Myall while he was absent from Witham - then they returned after Saxby had been contacted by radio - before finally setting off after Myall witnessed Saxby being contacted by phone, inside the station?

PC West stated that EACH of the two calls he made while Jeremy was on hold lasted approximately 3 minutes.
Where? At court, he stated "I would have said, in fact, 3 minutes was the total of the two conversations." He was immediately asked to confirm this, and said "Yes".
Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Reader on October 23, 2019, 06:07:AM
It's not for an unknown reason, 11 minutes is what AE stated Jeremy claimed when interviewed on the morning after the murders. I posted that days ago - but 11 minutes seems reasonable to me, given what happened during the call.
As I pointed out, she didn't claim that Jeremy was talking about the duration of his call. What she wrote left it unclear what particular interval was being referred to.

The two calls you have referred to are West's call to Bonnett at 03.26 and his call to Witham at 03.30. The basic point people seem to overlook is that if Jeremy called West at 03.36, West must have made those two calls after putting Nevill on hold and not Jeremy. So arguments based on the length of those earlier calls have no relevance to the question as to when Jeremy left Goldhanger or how fast he drove, if he called the police at 03:36.

If Jeremy called at 03.36 and West spoke to him for a minute before calling Witham, as is suggested by Myall's note which times West's call at 03.37, there would only be this one call before West got back to Jeremy, so the time he was on hold may have been no more than 3 minutes.
So Jeremy could have left for Whitehouse farm at around 03.40.

Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Strobe on October 23, 2019, 07:53:AM
The accounts given in the papers are misleading. The basic argument concerning West's call by telephone to Witham at 03.37 is that it tallies perfectly with the time of 03.36 on West's log, given that West said in court that he thought he had spoken to Jeremy for about a minute before putting him on hold to make another call.

But the call he made was not the one he made to headquarters which was received by Malcolm Bonnett at 03.26. It was made to Witham Police station, as is recorded in the note with the 03.37 time apparently written by PC Myall.

What seems to have happened is this. It was Nevill and not Jeremy who called PC West at just before 03.26. It was Nevill who West put on hold when he made the two calls he described with allegedly Jeremy on hold, firstly to headquarters at 03.26 (received by Bonnett) and secondly to Witham by radio at 03.30 (received by PC Saxby).

If the length of these two call is put at around five minutes, it's likely that Nevill would have been dead or disabled when West tried to speak to him again after he, West, had called Witham at 03.30. This takes events up to about 03.33

Assuming the call to Witham took about 3 minutes, West would have had only a few minutes before Jeremy called at 03.36. He evidently spoke to Jeremy for about a minute before calling Witham again at 03.37.

It appears that the intention of the police was to cover up the fact that Nevill called  earlier than Jeremy did and to pretend that Nevill's call was made by Jeremy at about 03:24. The significance of the note relating the 03.37 call is that it makes complete nonsense of the claim that Jeremy called at 03.24. That would imply that Jeremy's call lasted from 03.24 to around 03.40., a total of about 16 minutes and that he was on hold from 03.26 until about 03.39. Remember that the time on Myall's note gives the time of the start of West's call as 03.37.

Further, we are asked to believe that West actually called Witham twice while Jeremy was on hold, once by radio at 03.30 and again by phone at 03.37. It is notable that PC West did not mention his second call to Witham in his statements. It seems that when the police merged together the two calls from Nevill and Jeremy they had to do the same with the two calls to Witham. The note with the 03.37 time exposes the deception.

Before West called Witham, he had had a conversation with the person who rang at 3.24 or so, he'd spoken to Bonnet for a while, and then he spoke to Witham (PC Saxby). Saxby said that he received a call from Chelmsford at about 3.30. That makes sense to me. It was Jeremy who called West at about 3.24.

If Jeremy had rung at 3.36, West wouldn't have had time to take the details from him, call Bonnet to relay those details, and then rung Witham at 3.37.

The point I'm making is that in this other scenario West does not call Bonnett. He said he called Bonnett after speaking to Jeremy.

But the truth may be that he only called Bonnett after speaking to Nevill.

It isn't necessary to assume that West called Bonnett twice. On the other hand, the police could have got rid of the log he made of Nevill's call before he called Bonnett. At any rate that is what is being alleged and there is strong evidence to support it.

Why would West have called Witham twice with Jeremy on hold, but left any mention of the second call by phone out of his statements?

Yes, but then he spoke to Bonnet before he phoned Witham. I would say that the call to Witham happened at about 3.30 - as Saxby said.

The note allegedly written by Myall didn't actually say that the call came into Witham at 3.37. He might have been writing it at 3.37. We need more info really, not just snippets from a log.

But why in that case was this information not relayed at the earliest opportunity to the head of the whole investigation, namely DCI Taff Jones, when it would have corroborated the latter's assertion that the whole incident at White House Farm had been "a domestic" with Jeremy being unambiguously in the clear?

If Jeremy had rung at 3.36, West wouldn't have had time to take the details from him, call Bonnet to relay those details, and then rung Witham at 3.37.

West is on record saying Jeremy rang him before 3:26am.
West is on record saying he indeed wrote the time of Jeremy's call at 3:26am in his statement.
Bonnet is on record saying PC West relayed information from Jeremy.
West is on record saying he could have got the time wrong in his phone log.
West never mentioned a call from Nevill.
Bonnet never mentioned a call from Nevill.
Only one call was received.

Debating people who think Nevills call happened is becoming a fools errand. Because those who continue to believe it are too stupid to realise how stupid the argument is.

Yes. A mistake on the part of West has led to all kinds of speculation and statements that an appeal will be made. Now this "new" note has brought it all up again.

But if you read what both West and Bonnet wrote down, it seems clear that they were both referring to a call from Jeremy.

Why would West and Bonnet both suppress information about another call? Neither of them said there had been two calls.

Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Caroline on October 23, 2019, 01:39:PM
The accounts given in the papers are misleading. The basic argument concerning West's call by telephone to Witham at 03.37 is that it tallies perfectly with the time of 03.36 on West's log, given that West said in court that he thought he had spoken to Jeremy for about a minute before putting him on hold to make another call.

But the call he made was not the one he made to headquarters which was received by Malcolm Bonnett at 03.26. It was made to Witham Police station, as is recorded in the note with the 03.37 time apparently written by PC Myall.

What seems to have happened is this. It was Nevill and not Jeremy who called PC West at just before 03.26. It was Nevill who West put on hold when he made the two calls he described with allegedly Jeremy on hold, firstly to headquarters at 03.26 (received by Bonnett) and secondly to Witham by radio at 03.30 (received by PC Saxby).

If the length of these two call is put at around five minutes, it's likely that Nevill would have been dead or disabled when West tried to speak to him again after he, West, had called Witham at 03.30. This takes events up to about 03.33

Assuming the call to Witham took about 3 minutes, West would have had only a few minutes before Jeremy called at 03.36. He evidently spoke to Jeremy for about a minute before calling Witham again at 03.37.

It appears that the intention of the police was to cover up the fact that Nevill called  earlier than Jeremy did and to pretend that Nevill's call was made by Jeremy at about 03:24. The significance of the note relating the 03.37 call is that it makes complete nonsense of the claim that Jeremy called at 03.24. That would imply that Jeremy's call lasted from 03.24 to around 03.40., a total of about 16 minutes and that he was on hold from 03.26 until about 03.39. Remember that the time on Myall's note gives the time of the start of West's call as 03.37.

Further, we are asked to believe that West actually called Witham twice while Jeremy was on hold, once by radio at 03.30 and again by phone at 03.37. It is notable that PC West did not mention his second call to Witham in his statements. It seems that when the police merged together the two calls from Nevill and Jeremy they had to do the same with the two calls to Witham. The note with the 03.37 time exposes the deception.

So all of that aside (for a moment) - when did Jeremy call Julie?

Well I guess JB was relying on the officers to make notes and not for him to keep reminding them of what he ( alone ) saw when lights were going on and off. What officers saw and what they wrote down were two entirely different things once it came to trial----such as the figure in the window which changed to a trick of the light.

But at some point they weren't there?  Is this not why West had to resort to using personal radio link?  As Bews was 'out on a couple of PC's'.  Was Bews with Saxby and Myall while he was absent from Witham - then they returned after Saxby had been contacted by radio - before finally setting off after Myall witnessed Saxby being contacted by phone, inside the station?
During the Dickinson enquiry Bews confirmed that he had been out on foot patrol with Myall and Saxby, effectively leaving the police station unmanned and door locked, with the phone redirected to Chelmsford. All 3 returned to Witham around 03:10. That was quite common practice at sub-stations. All three officers were at Witham when West and Saxby had their alleged radio conversation (which I don't believe ever took place).
Cheers.

CA07 needs to have travelled on average 96mph to reach its destination at the time stated by its occupants.

This now explains how Chris ‘Hamilton’ Bews was able to drive passed Jeremy ‘Schumacher’ Bamber who was only travelling at around 84mph.

Cheers for response.  I've always been sceptical regarding the Nevill call scenario but have never quite been able to fully strike it from my mind.  Have your views changed much from the research you did to now?  I have to admit I haven't done a comparison - but for the first time ever, the calls situation seems to have perked my interest - to the point where I feel the need to examine it closely.

Can you elaborate on your radio remark?

He has also completely omitted the call to Julie. Which is crucial given that he argued that he (Jeremy) called Julie after the police. The scenario makes no indication of what Jeremy could have been doing for 25 minutes either.

Based on the premise of Nevill calling the police. What Jeremy did for 25 minutes or what Jeremy did or didn’t do or say wouldn’t matter. Hence anyone who believe’s in Nevills call has nothing to really answer for here.

We weren't talking about lights, we were talking about whether there were one or two phone calls to the police. West and Bonnet did write down what happened, it's just that West wrote down the time of the call wrongly.

Nobody saw lights going on and off. The police wrote down what they saw - it was up to the jury as to whether to place any credence on it. Clearly, the jury didn't believe that anyone was alive in the house when the police got there.

If Nevill rang the police implicating Sheila. There are no inferences to draw from Jeremy actions as he cannot be guilty anyway.

What needs to be addressed is the absence of any phone log from Nevill to the police operator. The timings that simply make it impossible, West and Bonnet making no mention of a call from Nevill. The police suppressing such a call from Jeremy's relatives ect ect.

We're going to have to agree to disagree here. This premise asks us to suspend what has gone before and includes ALL that Jeremy initially reported. You can't just wipe the sale clean and start again. Jeremy's account is still part of the case and what he said and did are still relevant. The notion that Neill called, is just that so they need to explain how the new fits with the old. You may not think so, but I was asking those who believe that Nevill called, to explain. And while we're on, I'll ask again - when did Jeremy call Julie in this 'new' version of events?

It really is quite simply but complicating it makes it easier to look like a conspiracy.

West took the call from Jeremy around 03:25 - this supports what Jeremy initially stated. West probably forgot to write the time down initially and added it later or just made a mistake. At that point, he wouldn't have though that 33 years later it was still being debated and his own comments as to what happened would be disregarded and new theories applied.

my thoughts  on timings in general are this

in those days  - the police were well aware of the importance of timings and  reliable clocks. The period of time we are talking about their Notes and time keeping was vital for evidence . they did not have technology to rely on . So IMO any changes or stating that clocks were wrong is either deceitful or down right sloppy. In court they would be expected to be accurate and detailed with their evidence.

However members of the public would obviously be more lax with their memory or accuracy . The argument that Jeremy would remember in detail all the timings and what was said because of the  horrendous outcome is quite frankly  ridiculous ( IMO so not to cause offence)  Firstly when he took the call if he is innocent he did not know what the outcome would be and then he would ( as reported ) be in total shock . And his first thoughts would not have been I am shortly going to have to make a full and detailed statement .  And if he made both calls to prove his innocence he would have pushed to mention the other call . As far as I am aware he mentioned about his fathers phone being engaged when he tried to call back  that was all ?

At the point when Jeremy phones, West didn't know what the outcome would be either and at around 03:30, he was probably bored and low on concentration or as you say - 'sloppy'. He was criticised for being just that after given evidence. One thing he would remember, is taking two calls, one from Nevill and one from Jeremy.

My dad had a massive heart attack in front of me I had to call the emergency services - I was in total shock but the time of the call was 21:25 - it's etched on my brain. It took 12 minutes for the paramedics to arrive from me hanging up the phone (seemed like a lifetime), he was pronounced dead at 21:40. The undertaker arrived at 10:10. Like I said, the times are etched and Bamber supposedly didn't even know there was much wrong when he made his call. He recalled the times perfectly the following day without any problem. After he had time to think, he realised that calling Julie first, was a problem.

Years later he made a complaint against West, claiming her perjured himself by changing the time on the log from 03:26 (the time Jeremy clung to at trial) to 03:36. Now he argues the opposite. He required the time to be 03:26 at trial so he could argue he called Julie after the police - he needs the time to be 03:36 now, so he can argue that Nevill called. So when did he called Julie?

Ainsley suppressed a lot of information and was able to retire early with a police pension, to carry out his role at the caravan site, but didn't have Taff Jones murdered.


I was being sarcastic.

The CT claim Sheila rang an ambulance. Why don’t you believe that then?

The only thing Ainsley and Co suppressed (as far as I know). Is the evidence of no forced entry via the bathroom window. The bible and Fletchers silencer experiments.

Sheila was the only one alive at the time that's why she rang for an ambulance.

Yeah, I know you were being sarcastic.  I looked at the ambulance thing for a while - but I felt it was weak because it was ambiguous and leant itself to different interpretations.

Friday 13 September 1985 was the “day of evil” when a good deal of the documentation used against Jeremy was created. On the morning of Friday 13th September 1985, Jeremy appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates Court where he was granted bail on charges of burglary until 16th October 1985. Both PC West and Malcolm Bonnett allegedly made statements dated 13.9.85.

Do you have any evidence that West's statement of 9th August was actually made in September?

Not personally. Initial statements were made at a time when Jeremy was not officially regarded as a suspect.  Sheila was in the frame.  Given that Ainsley was brought in with the brief of pursuing Jeremy, he could not have allowed any statements come to light which ruled Jeremy out in any obvious way.

There's a difference when you're physically there with a person who's died than if you get a phone-call at stupid o'clock from 3 or so miles away.
I nursed my husband until his death at night and was asked by the on-call GP what the time of death was and I was struggling even then.

There is NO difference!!  >:( >:(

I was MORE concerned about my Dad then the time, I looked at the clock so I could have an idea of how long the paramedics would take and I'll never forget someone pronouncing my dad dead nor when they took him out of the house!

Jeremy on the other hand, offered up the time of 03:10 and 03:25, had he said, I don't recall and in his (so called) desperate state, called 999 - I might agree on the shock suggestion.
Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Strobe on October 24, 2019, 02:55:AM
So all of that aside (for a moment) - when did Jeremy call Julie?


Jeremy originally said that he called Julie Mugford before he called the police. He said he called at  03.25 and this is corroborated by the time Julie Mugford originally gave for when she got the call. She said it was 03.30. Given the tendency people have to round off times to the nearest five minutes, the call probably took place at around 03.27. Another basic reason for rejecting the view that Jeremy called the police at 03.26 is that he was calling Julie Mugford at that time.

People who defend the position that Jeremy called West at around 03.24 don't only need to maintain that West mistimed his log at 03.36, they need to change the times of all the relevant phone calls in that period, which is a reduction to the absurd.

If a time is disputed then you look for corroboration by relating it to other accepted times, but in this case the opposition maintain that the times which should count as corroboration are also wrong by about the same amount.

3:36. Time West receiving Jeremy's call. Must be corrected to 03:24.

03:25. Time Jeremy said he called Julie Mugford. Must be corrected to 03:40 or to some time earlier than 03.25 depending on the agenda.

03:30 Time Susan Battersby said she was woken up  by Jeremy's call. Must be corrected to 03:40 or to 03.15 or whatever.

03.37 Time West's telephone call was received at Witham. Must be changed to whatever is required.

But with this last there is a another problem. Even if it is maintained that this call is mistimed, it can't seriously be denied that it took place. There is too much detail for there to be any doubt that West made a call by telephone  to Witham at approximately 03.37, which he strangely did not mention in his statements.

From the witness statement of PC Saxby dated 23 September 1985:

“About 03:30am on Wednesday the 7th August 1985 I was on duty at Witham Police Station in company Police Sergeant 36 Bews and Police Constable 1509 Myall, [sic] when I received a message over my personal radio, from Chelmsford Police Station”

During the Dickinson inquiry, PC Myall gave evidence of a call from PC West at 03.37.

“We received a telephone call at the P.Stn. [Police Station, Witham]. The officer (PC West) at CD Control [Chelmsford] was on the phone and told us that he was relating information to us and still had the informant (Jeremy Bamber) on the other telephone.”

Pc West doesn't mention his telephone call to Witham in his statements. He specifically states that he used a radio link, and makes no mention of a separate telephone call to any officer at Witham.

Weirdly, PC West's statement dated 13th August 1985 ends with "Since the 7 August 1985 I have made no written record of the above information and the conversation above is made from my memory of the occasion." and makes no mention of his statement of 9th August 1985.

And he may be right.  Or he may be wrong.  But my reference to Lomax was in relation to the Jeremy Julie phone call.

My understanding of Lomax is that he can be quite a prickly character.  Wasn't there some fall out, regarding demands to see certain documents?  He then announced he was writing another book that Jeremy wouldn't have sight of.  But so far, it hasn't materialised.

Coming up with a conspiracy theory to justify your position is not going to achieve anything.

PC West writing down one number incorrectly. Is not enough evidence to make the conspiracy theory a plausible one.

West did not accept he wrote down the wrong time.  He disputed that argument.  And Myall's Dickinson interview notes now arguably provide some corroboration.

Bill said he posted a reply to one of my posts - but then he couldn't see the reply, so he pm'd me. 

Quote
Personal radios were notoriously unreliable in the 1970/80 period, with a transmission range of between 1-2 miles depending on factors such as the weather and obstructions in the path of the signal. It is 8.5 miles from Chelmsford to Witham and in my view, impossible for a personal radio to transmit over that distance.

Another question is, if there really was a radio contact with PC Saxby at 03:30 why would West not have asked Saxby to call him back by phone, or answer the phone if West called?  A radio conversation only works in one direction – it's not like talking on the telephone. A transmission is one-directional and does not facilitate easy conversation; only one person can speak, the other is forced to listen and cannot interject or ask questions.  PC West’s witness statement of 13 September implies that he spoke to PC Saxby for at least one minute, possibly two – that is a very long time to be holding a radio conversation, as radio is prone to breaks in transmission and is also not private (in those days the public could listen in).  It would be far easier to explain the situation by telephone than via a radio link that is liable to fail.

So the question is, Why did Saxby lie about this?  Simply, because he was asked to help the prosecution of Jeremy Bamber by creating a false timeline of events when PC West seemingly insisted on telling the truth about the time of Jeremy’s phone call at 03:36.

David, how about this...

After taking over the case from a previous standpoint where Sheila Caffell was implicated - and a casefile of evidence had been assembled supporting this conclusion

In order to prosecute Jeremy Bamber, Ainsley has to:

[1] Coordinate and lead a fresh round of statement taking, including altering or burying some previous statements, that were taken prior to him taking over the case?

[2] Not have to coordinate or lead a fresh round of statement taking.  Not have to alter or bury any previous statements that were taken prior to him taking over the case?

1 = conspiracy

2 = ?

It's impossible to pinpoint why police would sacrifice a person they either knew to be innocent or suspected was likely innocent.  Some police officers clearly favoured the relatives and empathised with their pleas, regarding their perceived 'plight'.  It's possible that the patriarch of the relatives had got wind of some info via an informal channel.  For example, things not stacking up in relation the TFG op, the positioning of bodies, 'informatives' coming in to carry out training - who knows.

But once the deputy head ordered that the attention should be turned on to JB, the culture at that time was for subordinates to be expected to fall in line and follow suit.  in these circs... if those officers now 'on the up' happened to be the same officers who had a cosy relationship with the relatives...

I'm not trying to achieve anything.  For me, what is important is to discover what really took place.  If that truth includes malpractice and foul play - you have the right to term that a 'conspiracy'.  Personally I feel it's an umbrella term that's used dismissively. 

West did not accept he wrote down the wrong time.  He disputed that argument.  And Myall's Dickinson interview notes now arguably provide some corroboration.

I don't know how much of the log was shown - my understanding is that it's more complicated than you infer.

He didn't dispute it, he indicated that it was possible!

All of the log was shown, the CT aren't denying that and if they are, then that's a new one!

David, how about this...

After taking over the case from a previous standpoint where Sheila Caffell was implicated - and a casefile of evidence had been assembled supporting this conclusion

In order to prosecute Jeremy Bamber, Ainsley has to:

[1] Coordinate and lead a fresh round of statement taking, including altering or burying some previous statements, that were taken prior to him taking over the case?

[2] Not have to coordinate or lead a fresh round of statement taking.  Not have to alter or bury any previous statements that were taken prior to him taking over the case?

1 = conspiracy

2 = ?

Not sure what the point if your post is Roch? Obviously further information would be required from witness's - like the Raid team and those that had interaction with Bamber.

Police used radio's all of the time and West had no reason to lie.

I think he means that Saxby 'went along' with there being radio communication, as a result of the predicament that  Ainsley was placed in, by West stubbornly refusing to change the time of Jeremy's call.

I don't recall referring to any interview with Saxby. It is very straightforward. You do the research and you draw conclusions from it. My conclusion is that there was no radio communication at 03:30; it is a lie, as is the statement that CA7 left Witham at 03:35. They obviously didn't; Myall's pocketbook gives their time of departure as 03:39 - just after West phoned at 03:37. The 03:30 radio communication is a fiction created by Ainsley which Saxby agreed to support.

His witness statement says that he was on duty at 03:45; in the context of the arrival at Pages Lane that is a meaningless statement, it is not the time they arrived at WHF.

As you know, usually I don't get along with David, however, what I will say is that like me, he doesn't accept things just because they support an 'innocent' Bamber and it is rather frustrating when people come along, make sweeping statements, refuse to answer anything put to them and either just bugger off or loiter as a guest.

If their argument is sound, they should be able to back it up.  Bill et al's argument goes against what Jeremy maintained at the time (he called police around 03:25 and called the police before Julie) and against what both West and Bonnet stated (no call from Nevill).

I have asked Bill what time he thinks Bamber called Julie - no response.

It does not matter when Jeremy called Julie. Calling her to 'hear a friendly voice' could be done before or after calling the police.

But a bit weird getting a frantic 4 second call from Nevill, then calling Julie straight away.

More plausible he would call Julie after speaking to the police & calming down a bit. This would of course mean he phoned the police at 3.26am as he would not have time to call Julie after a 3.36am call.

My conclusion is that there was no radio communication at 03:30; it is a lie, . . .
You also asserted (according to Roch) "Personal radios were notoriously unreliable in the 1970/80 period, with a transmission range of between 1-2 miles depending on factors such as the weather and obstructions in the path of the signal." However, Pc West asserted that he used a radio link between Chelmsford police station and Witham police station, rather than a personally carried radio.

Exactly! But he denies that - can't have it both ways!
Jeremy was interviewed as follows:
And how long were you on the phone to her?
A minute two minutes not very long as I had to ring the police.
Did you then ring the Chelmsford Police?
Yes.

When asked again about this order of calls, the interview continued as follows:
You then phoned Chelmsford Police Station and told them what had happened, is that right?
No, I think I phoned Julie before them first.
Why phone Julie before phoning the police?
I don't remember my reasons.

Jeremy's questioning on this continued and Jeremy repeatedly said he couldn't remember until eventually, when pressed as to why he called Julie, Jeremy replied "At the time I probably felt pissed off by my reaction from the police and needed a friendly ear." This was clearly said out of frustration, the true situation being that he couldn't be sure which call he made first and couldn't remember what he had said to Julie. It's reasonable to suppose that he told Julie that his father had telephoned him, which implies that he expected her advice as to what he should do. This is consistent with Julie's initial recollection of his call.

Also, Jeremy thought that his first statement was reliable in relation to the above matters. However, that statement didn't clarify either the order of the calls or what was said in the conversation other than that he called her to say that something appeared wrong.

Jeremy is ADAMANT that he called Julie AFTER the police. He got himself into a muddle in interview, However, since then, he has told both myself and Mike that he called the police first - not only that, (and I will say this again and the risk of boring myself with it!) - He tried to bring a perjury charge against West, who he accused of changing the time on his log from 03:26 (the time he insisted he called the police) to 03:36. His reasoning was that it was supposed to make it look as though he called Julie before the police. He was THAT adamant. Now all this has change to support West's log entry - games and tactics!

Post by: Adam on October 25, 2019, 09:36:AM
From the OS-

Jeremy Bamber's lawyer, Mark Newby, is currently in an ongoing discussion with the CPS regarding the non-disclosure of key evidence.

At the time of the trial the Defence did not know that there was more than one sound moderator seized by police. One came from the relatives (later estate beneficiaries) who found the moderator at the house days after the police had finished their work.

The other was probably taken by police from the house before the end of their scenes of crime work. It is impossible to tell the difference between them at various times, but disclosed paperwork shows that there were two moderators being examined on the same day, each with different contaminates and having different characteristics. This means that we can be certain there were two.

-------------

Not sure how this benefits Jeremy.

I have not seen any evidence that the police had two moderators. Thought they took nothing from the gun cupboard.  But no big deal if at some point they did have two moderators.  There would have been two or more at WHF.

If one moderator had back splatter blood inside matching Sheila's, that incriminates Bamber. The police did not need to use two silencers for that.

The OS suggests the relatives put the blood in. Again they would not need two moderators to do that.

Hopefully the OS can explain how this is a good enough technicality.
Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Adam on October 25, 2019, 09:45:AM
The police could only submit one moderator to Huntingdon. So no benefit in having two with them.

There should by rights only have been one silencer that was expected to feature, the one with paint on it to show the jury that " there had been a struggle " resulting in the Aga being affected by scratches. But-------on the day of the murders when the photographer was there taking pics of the Aga and its surround, there were no marks/scratches on it as they were found some time after, along with the silencer and its paint.

Myalls pocket has a time of 3:39am for departure and 3:45am for arrival. However that would mean CAO7 travelled at around 80mph.

If we go by Bonnets time of departure. Then we have a more realistic speed 50mph

The OS say that the relatives handed in a moderator. See reply 479.

This would have had blood and paint on, otherwise there was no point handing it in. The relatives in their WS's say the moderator they found had blood & paint on. The police would have handed this to the lab team.

So why would the police need to submit a second moderator to the lab team?

No.

What brought Jeremy to trial was Malcom Fletcher's misguided conclusions that Sheila's gunshot wounds were not self inflicted. Thanks to what his relatives installed into the investigation.

What convicted Jeremy was a poor defence strategy from an inadequate defence team followed by an unfair summing up by the judge.

Ainsley didn't do nothing.

Ainsley visited RWB on the 6th of September to tell him that JM was helping police with their enquiries and was also backing what the relatives said about JB's involvement with the shootings.
This can be found in RWB's COLP statement of 1991.

OK Understood. But I wouldn't have given you that answer if you didn't explain your thought process behind Ainsley having to do it in the first place.

Evidence was suppressed from the trial in this case. That's nothing uncommon. But the idea of Nevills call does not fall into that category, because what is believed to be Nevills police phone log was presented at trial. The two operators who are alleged to have taken such a call testified at the trial.

In his statement of 23 September 1985, however, PC Saxby asserts that he received a radio message from Chelmsford Police Station at about 03:30 and makes no mention of receiving a telephone call from Bonnett or HQ.

He then states that as a result of that message, he left to attend WHF with Ps Bew and Pc Myall at about 03:35, arriving at about 0345.

Bonnett stated that after being contacted by Pc West, he (Bonnett) contacted a mobile police car (CA7). Contacting a car would have to be by radio. He then states that he sent that vehicle to WHF at 03:35 and subsequently received notification by radio at 03:48 of its arrival at WHF.

At 10am the same morning he wrote about the telephone and radio calls in his pocketbook. Six weeks later he has probably forgotten about it.

He then states that as a result of that message, he left to attend WHF with Ps Bew and Pc Myall at about 03:35, arriving at about 0345.

Yes

Yes. The likely explanation for that is by the time Bonnet received the message it was 3:48 on his clock.  The clock display in CA07 was three minutes behind Bonnets. Or there was a delay in updating bonnet about their arrival.

Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: David1819 on October 27, 2019, 02:12:PM
Saxby and Myalls pocket books both state they left the station at 3.39. While Bews pocket pocket book states 3.40.

However six weeks later they all claim they left at 3:35am. That is because the times in their pocket books would mean they must have travelled at over 90mph. Hence they all agreed they left at 3.35 making the journey speed a plausible 50mph.

So probably the clock at Witham was ahead of the clocks at HQ.

If Bews and Myall are accurate in their arrival time as well as everything else par departure time. It would mean Jeremy left his place at around 3:39am

Pc West consistently and specifically stated that he used radio to do that, not telephone, whereas the recent notes relating to the Dickinson enquiry very specifically say that Pc West telephoned while he still had Jeremy on hold on the other (telephone) line. If both Bonnett and Pc West contacted Pc Saxby, he would presumably tell the second caller that he'd just been sent to WHF by the first caller, but neither Bonnett nor Pc West make any mention of that, and neither suggests Bonnett and Pc West contacted Pc Saxby simultaneously.

Why, and I place empathise on the word why, is Jeremy Bambers legal team discovering missing logs some 34 years later???? Why was this all suppressed and hidden? Regardless of guilt or innocence.

"That is you telephoning and telling someone to go to the scene."

Bonnett replied as follows:

I find there to be a huge problem with what's said of West's 'motives'. Everything that's said is with the benefit of what we know NOW. On that night in 1985, NONE of it was known because as far as the police were concerned nothing had happened. Unless we're prepared to accept the lunacy of another call being deliberately withheld SHOULD 'they' decide to prosecute Jeremy, OR that they were looking for another prosecution to boost their poor record, NONE of West's alleged thoughts that night make any sort of sense.

It is 1985 it's rural Essex. 999 was not firmly established till the late seventies. Maybe it was common practice at that era and in those type of areas  still to telephone local police stations. If I remember correctly Jeremy Bamber said that when asked why he didn't phone 999 he said that he thought it wouldn't make any difference in police arrival time.

The argument for NOT calling 999 is the weakest of ALL the innocent arguments! 'He was in shock' 'He didn't think it would make a difference' all weak arguments for something I believe most people would have done in the same situation!

Certainly it can. It goes a bit like this. When one first gets the script for a play there's a cold read-through, ie we just read the written words. At that time we're not 'into' the character we're hoping to play. By the time the play is staged, we're living the character we're playing. We feel what they're feeling. It seems to me that Jeremy was at the read through stage. Although it was technically correct, it lacked feeling, and the reason it lacked feeling was, because there was no phone call for him to draw on, he hadn't experienced the terror Nevill was likely to have felt HAD he felt compelled to call his son at that hour, and only remembered, at the last minute, when complaining about being kept waiting, that it might be a good thing to say his father sounded terrified.

Well, 'pet' if Nevill didn't make any call to Jeremy, he was controlling the WHOLE process by using the call as his alibi. It's impossible for me to argue from the standpoint of Nevill calling because I don't believe he did. It's not difficult 'pet'.

Well that depends when he shot them doesn't it? Have you read much about this case at all? He told police his sister was a nutter and that she knew how to use guns. It doesn't take a genius to work out that under those circumstances, unarmed officers would be unlikely to break their way in!

Perhaps it was because there's a dividing line between someone waving a gun about and having the ability to use one for the purpose for which it was made. Jeremy, having left them all dead, needed to impress on the police, whilst he had their full attention, that Sheila was gun competent, in order to plant the seed in their minds that she was capable of murder.

Growing up with doesn't constitute joining in with. My friend's daughter lives on the farm owned and run by her grandparents, her late father, and now her brother. She has NEVER held a gun, neither, incidentally, has her son who lived with his grandparents until he was eight. These are generational farming people. Sheila was not. Another friend regularly went on shoots with her late husband. She once, very reluctantly, held a gun. She wouldn't have a clue how to load one.

I would think it's routine not to delay dealing with a call by saying what's previously happened, especially when nobody (including the caller) knows what's happening at WHF.

Huh? You mean that West did have a call from Nevill but didn't mention it because he was busy dealing with Jeremy's later call? What abount afterwards when Jeremy was accused? I think West might remember he'd had a call from Nevill.

It would depend on the time he shot them!!! He SAID he received the call circa 3am, meaning they were still alive. It wouldn't have done to get the police on scene TOO soon if it was possible for them to detect they'd actually been dead for several hours. Delay was imperative.

If he'd called 999, I'm not sure the police would have got there any quicker though. Do you mean that if he'd rung 999, a firearms unit would have stormed the farmhouse much earlier?

I'm not attempting to say what would have happened. I'm attempting to say what I think Jeremy may have thought would happen. I think, back then, more than now, we may have relied, more safely, on a 999 call getting us an immediate response. Holding that thought, there's every possibility that had Jeremy called 999 immediately after Nevill's alleged call, they'd have arrived at WHF before he'd wasted another 25 minutes phoning abortive numbers, and Julie.

In fact, I'm surprised that he phoned the police at all. The point of it all was to make them think Sheila had done it. The fact that she was found with the gun on her would surely make them think that anyway.

You're clearly buying the phone call from Nevill, but you can't use the "He didn't think it was serious" tack when he told the police -more as an aside, and a way of reprimand for keeping him waiting, I feel- that his father had sounded "panicked"/"terrified". No, he couldn't have 'known'. He just had to do a lot of second guessing/eliminating risk to himself.

I'm surprised at your surprise that he called the police. It seems to me that this was a fine tuned plan, POSSIBLY with some basis on his belief that calls could be traced? He'd staged it like a play. It wasn't enough for him to tell police that Sheila had a history of mental illness, he had to add that she was gun competent and had handled/used most of the guns in the house. He backed up this story by leaving the gun in a position suggesting suicide.

He only said later on in the call to the police that his father sounded terrified. I don't suppose he expected to be on the phone for ten minutes or so. Some people don't call 999 - they call a doctor or they call the police station. I just don't read anything into it.

He didn't need to pretend Nevill had phoned him in order to tell the police all that stuff. He could have told them when they were found by someone else.

EXACTLY!!! "He only said later on..........."!!! It seems that despite a call from his father at silly 'clock, telling him his sister had gone berserk and had a gun, his father's terror wasn't high on his list of conveyable priorities.

He certainly could have made that choice. It might have been an alternative. However, I imagine he may have believed all the phone calls he made gave him a reliable alibi.

Well why would he say it later on if he was guilty? I thought he wanted to delay the arrival of the police - according to some people.

The phone call didn't give him an alibi, and he must have known that. All it did was to help put the idea into the heads of the police that Sheila had done it - something they would have thought anyway after they found her with the gun laying across her.

Because he thought it was the appropriate thing to throw in? He'd already managed, very successfully, to delay the arrival of the police by waiting 25 minutes before calling them. Odd, don't you think, that he must have registered that his father had sounded panicked/terrified in order to be able to tell the police, yet he chose to wait 25 minutes before calling them?

Waiting 25 minutes after what? The alleged phone call from Nevill? That supposedly happened about 3.10, and Jeremy called the police at about 3.24. That's not 25 minutes.

I don't see why he would suddenly want the police to hurry up if he'd been delaying them.

So you wouldn't describe wanting haste as an appropriate reaction to a distress call, even if it's only the appearance of wanting haste? Irrespective of the time wasted being less, it's still too much. I can take on board that IF he'd received the call and the line went dead, he'd try to call back but surely getting no response would have increased his urgency rather than diminished it. I do find strange your ambivalence regarding his lack of any sense of urgency.

Jeremy's estimate of 03:10 was probably inaccurate, as he estimated that he called Julie at 03:25, which would have been shortly after he'd been unable to return Nevill's call. Julie initially thought that he'd called her at about 03:30.

Although it was technically correct, it lacked feeling, and the reason it lacked feeling was, because there was no phone call for him to draw on, he hadn't experienced the terror Nevill was likely to have felt HAD he felt compelled to call his son at that hour, and only remembered, at the last minute, when complaining about being kept waiting, that it might be a good thing to say his father sounded terrified.
It was the same with the funerals. Jeremy had to mimic Colin's grief because he felt none himself.

what relevance is this? How would he be helping himself. Even if guilty it would just be delaying the inevitable. Someone at some point would access the farmhouse whether it be all guns blazing or if it was pc heartbeat and co they would call the armed response unit. He wouldn't be controlling the situation would he.
Ilovebooze why did he tell police that Sheila had trained in target practice?

she grew up in a farming household surrounded by men who habitually went off shooting game like any other adolescent growing up in a certain environment she would have picked up the basics. It's common sense and she went on shooting holidays and knew how to handle a gun
She did not.

Why does it depend on when he shot them?

Didn't he want officers to go in and find them all? What would be the purpose of delaying that?

Well, had Sheila ‘just’ shot them and herself, you would expect them to still be warm. Had they been dead for sometime it would be noticeable - which would mean Nevill couldn’t have called so .....
Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Caroline on November 03, 2019, 04:05:PM
Waiting 25 minutes after what? The alleged phone call from Nevill? That supposedly happened about 3.10, and Jeremy called the police at about 3.24. That's not 25 minutes.

I don't see why he would suddenly want the police to hurry up if he'd been delaying them.
The claim is now, that he called the police at 03:36!

I take your point, but I still don't think that the fact he didn't call 999 means very much. He couldn't have known that Witham or Chelmsford wouldn't call out the firearms unit straightaway, or that the Witham police wouldn't try to get into the house.

He could if he was there to influence matters. The 999 issue is very much down to interpretation but even when I thought he was innocent, I couldn't understand why he wouldn't have called the emergency services or, if he didn't want to do that, why he didn't do as his father had requested and head on over to WHF. I'd have done both!

Why would anyone in his situation need to try to second guess what the emergency services might -or not- do? Regarding what Jeremy did, had there been no duplicity on his part, there'd have been no need to worry. Not for a moment do I think that half a dozen boys in blue would have charged the door with a rammer, they'd have tried to make contact first, If there HAD been a terrible misunderstanding and an irate Nevill had answered the door, the responsibility would have been his, not Jeremy's. I feel quite certain he could have smoothed the whole thing over in some way.

I'm confused about WHY you find it confusing. Try to imagine yourself on the receiving end of a terrified family member who has found themselves in a potentially life threatening situation. Are you going to flick through various numbers until you find a manned police station? Are you going to phone a friend? Won't you be worried out of your mind every minute you do nothing positive? OR are you going to phone 999?

I find all the different points of view confusing.

We simply don't know how terrified Nevill allegedly sounded. He didn't actually say much did he? It seems that Jeremy rang Julie, and she told him to go back to bed. Perhaps he thought at first it wasn't that serious, then thought it might be, but not enough to ring 999. Perhaps he wasn't that bothered what Sheila was doing. Perhaps it didn't occur to him that the whole family would be shot.

It's all speculation anyway.

Factor in that (according to him now), he didn't call 999 AND it took him 26 minutes not to do so. 26 minutes is a long time to contemplate and even by the original timings, 14 minutes is aso quite some time if you believe that your family are in danger!

Or is it that you're confused about what you think?

We actually DO know how terrified was Nevill.
 A) He allegedly got his son out of bed circa 3am to tell him
 B) We have Jeremy's word that he'd sounded panicked/terrified.

I'll grant that it's extremely difficult to decipher how Jeremy was feeling about something I don't believe happened, however, he pulled it out the bag eventually and went through the motions.

Some of the padding may be speculation. The facts aren't.

Don't you find it odd that he is prepared to stretch the time of his phone call from his initial timing of 03:24/5 to 03:36 when he knows this isn't the case? He KNOWS this isn't the case because he attempted to bring a perjury case against West for logging his call at 03:36. An innocent man would stick to the facts but he's prepared to change them.

I've never believed that Nevill phoned the police. He will get nowhere with this appeal IMO, unless there are other pieces of new evidence. The fact is that Jeremy phoned West at about 3.24. It could have been 3.22 or 3.23, but he did not leave it 25 minutes before he phoned.

I don't find it odd because he is looking for anything which he thinks could clear him. That doesn't signify either guilt or innocence.

Innocent people are sometimes set free because of lack of evidence, or because of technicalities. I wouldn't assume they're telling the truth about absolutely everything.

If Jeremy is innocent, what can he do to show that? He's tried the DNA thing, he's tried other things, and he's going to try everything he can. The appeal court will not buy it, but that's another issue.

You're right. We were not involved with the Bamber family before the massacre, but some of us are doing more than relying on what was said by relatives. By taking a look at Sheila's life we can get some clues.

A girl less inclined toward country pursuits it would be difficult to find. Certainly, she accompanied the family to a shoot in Scotland -I mean, given the chance, who of us wouldn't?! Brilliant time of year. Wonderful scenery. Great 'apres' shoot parties- she may well have posed with a gun. She may even, on occasion, have shot one in the air. It doesn't mean she was gun competent. It doesn't mean she could break and load. It doesn't denote an interest in either country pursuits in general or guns in particular .....................NEITHER does her chosen lifestyle. Just how much further away could she get from country life than London. No chance there for huntin', shootin', and fishin', instead she choose girly pursuits such as secretarials, hairdressing, and finally, modelling. Not that she made a success of any of them. When all else failed and she needed to earn, she turned to cleaning houses and waiting at tables rather than leaving London and returning to rural Essex where she'd have had security from the business her parents offered to set her up in, plus a house they'd have given her. She appears to have been scratching around for every penny. From where do you imagine she'd have found the money for shooting lessons if she'd even had time to think it was something she might enjoy. Given that she didn't even like her boys to play with guns, I suspect the thought never crossed her mind that she might enjoy shooting.

 Then, of course, there's her well documented lack of coordination and her inability to place beans on toast -one shouldn't be surprised that she failed miserably at both secretarials and hairdressing. She'd have been hitting all the wrong keys, and God knows what she'd have done with a pair of scissors in her hands!!! Odd, that every one of the shots fired from that gun found a home, isn't it? I'd have said that the shooter knew exactly how to aim and fire a gun, and had the ability to reload with confidence when necessary. I'm also willing to bet that person wasn't Sheila.

But she didn't live there most of the time and whenever she did she couldn't wait to get away! She held a gun once in her hand in Scotland in 1978 whilst she and Colin were grouse beaters and David Boutflour helped her pull the trigger. That was it.

But she didn't live there most of the time and whenever she did she couldn't wait to get away! She held a gun once in her hand in Scotland in 1978 whilst she and Colin were grouse beaters and David Boutflour helped her pull the trigger. That was it.
Steve, were you and shelia acquainted pre August 7th 85?

Come on look at this logically for a moment. " She couldn't even plate beans on toast " if I had a pound for every time my brother and father had ridiculed me over the years for " not being able to knock the rice of skin pudding " I'd be a wealthy man. It's just the opinion of people around her. It's mockery In essence. If I recall Shelia had been on a shooting holiday. One relative recalls her handling a gun? She was also a farmers daughter. I go back to what I earlier said. None of us were privy to the bambers activities. But it's all speculation. I don't think I'm being outlandish in stating that Shelia knew how to handle guns.

No, but you're making sweeping statements and relying on generalizations. My friends, wives, daughters, and sisters to farmers, have NEVER touched guns, have never been on shoots. This doesn't mean that ALL country women dislike country pursuits, it just means that it's not a given that they do. You will have noted that I've looked at a much bigger picture, here. What I haven't bought into the picture is her illness, subsequent medication and the effects it had on her person. They would all preclude any form of dexterity.

You're from the David1819 school of membership on this site. I have come to respect him over the years yet you sir still have much to learn.
on the contrary Steven/Stephen I have nothing to learn. I am neither pro Jeremy Bamber or ardently a supporter of his guilt. The only person who knows the truth of that matter is the 58 year old in HMP wakefield. I'm just taking a neutral stance to the whole case

Really!!! Are you absolutely certain about your neutrality? It's highly unusual for neutrals to become that agitated about a post that they feel the need to resort to inappropriate language by way of protest. I will agree, however, that Jeremy, as I believe he claimed to a friend's mother, prior to his arrest, is the only one who knows what really happened that night.

Let me just say that when I first joined, I believed Jeremy was innocent. Indeed, for personal reasons, I was so desperate for him to be that I heard myself making excuses for him. It was at that point when my protests started feeling hollow.

Now, I've looked at Julie's relationship with Jeremy from several angles. The first -and I'll own up before Adam drops me in it!!!- involved me being disparaging about the clothes she wore to court. I may even have said that she had the beginnings of a moustache!!! You may guess, correctly that I didn't like her. Then I took a gooood, deep look at her life. I started to see a different Julie.....................

....................Undoubtedly, she was a clever girl, but her life hadn't been exactly cushioned. She was doing a second degree but was having to do casual work to fund it. It was at on such that she met Jeremy. When he showed an interest she probably thought all her Birthdays and Christmas's had come at once. I think she may have begun to envisage a different life for herself. One in which she didn't have to struggle for every penny -whilst Jeremy may have complained bitterly about being short of money, he actually had NO idea what it felt like because the family 'cushion' was always there as a safety net- and one where she was whisked off to exciting places at a moment's notice. For a while life must have been good.

Would she have believed him when he first said he wanted rid of his family? At 20 years old, I don't somehow think she'd have taken him seriously. After all, what reason did he have? He was doing very nicely............by her standards. In any case, what was she going to do? She might have gone to the police but they A) probably wouldn't have believed her, and B) there was nothing they could have done until/unless a crime had been committed. She allowed him the use of her sleeping pills, however, I can't be sure if it was an active or passive thing. What I'm certain of is that she didn't believe he'd go through with what he told her he was planning. In fact, I don't think he dotted any I's or crossed any T's until the moment he made up his mind to do it, by which time she was caught up in it and it was too late. It's likely that every time she thought of walking into a police station -and I believe she must have- she probably saw herself throwing up.

I don't know how she lived with it for as long as she did. I can only think that she still felt that as long as they were together, somehow it would all come right in the end. I make no excuses for her. She behaved very badly. She flaunted herself like a tramp. I wouldn't have wanted her teaching my children. But it wasn't she who committed the crime, HOWEVER! I'm inclined to believe she MAY have known rather more than she revealed because I find it very odd that Jeremy has never said anything derogatory of her. If he knows she has something more on him, to me, it suggests his guilt.

Thanks for the reminder, Steve. It occurs to me that life must be so much simpler for those who can only see things in terms of black or white. They never have to experience the confusion of picking their way through those infinite shades of grey, and whether they're right or wrong it won't bother them. Their belief is everything. Good Night :)

One further comment I will make tonight: if it had to be far rather for humanity's sake that a tragically deranged young schizophrenic killed her children out of love than a cold, calculating apparently sane individual murdered out of pure hatred, self-interest and greed.

She would have been considered an armed suspect and as such, the welfare of the attending officers would have been the first concern.
That would no longer apply once she'd been certified dead or was thought to be dead.

She wasn't shot by the police though.
When did she die then?

The claim is now, that he called the police at 03:36!
That's supported by Pc West's log. In court, Pc West insisted that he'd dealt with Jeremy's call speedily. Hence Jeremy could then have driven to WHF, taking about 7 minutes to drive there.

It's not supported by Bonnet's and West admitted that he probably made a mistake.

Previously Jeremy insisted that he called at 03:24 which IS consistent with Bonnet's log.

This is a ridiculous argument and anyone supporting this pathetic attempt to invent a call from Nevill will end up with egg on their face. However, even when it is rejected by the CCRC (which it will be), people will still hang onto it. Flabbergasted!!

I find that completely bizarre too. If I accept that Julie is telling the truth, how does she cope with that? When Jeremy rang her and allegedly said "tonight's the night", I can see how she might not take that seriously, but then he rang her again and said something was wrong at the farm, and she told him to go back to bed!

What on earth did she think when she found out the next day that they were all dead, and she had done nothing to prevent it? She sat there giving a statement like she knew nothing, and then carried on  seeing him. She even went to see the little boys who he murdered, and still said nothing. I don't get it.

Neither, I imagine, do most of us. Who, of us, would actually take it seriously if the man we were in love suddenly expressed a wish to kill his family? Who of us, haven't, at some time, thought the same of our own? Being in denial comes pretty close to where she was, I'd say. Pretend that everything's 'normal' and it will all be alright? Everything will be fine as long as we're together? She was possibly more scared of leaving him than staying with him. He was hardly likely to kill her, too, because he'd be number one suspect for the family murders. She probably ran a whole gamut of emotions. I bet it was the biggest relief of her life when she finally off loaded that dreadful secret.

I can understand her not taking it seriously - until it happened. I don't understand her attitude or behaviour after that. I can't understand how she could let him touch her, how she could go to the funeral and comfort him. I also don't understand why she was not prosecuted for perverting the course of justice or for assisting an offender.

I was out of the country when the murders happened, and I was still away when Jeremy was arrested and all the fall out was going on, so I didn't follow the story at the time, but I get the impression that she was treated like a heroine rather than someone who covered up for a murderer. Maxine Carr did much less than Julie and was treated like a pariah.

there is no secret about it. According to Julie Jeremy had mentioned it on few occasions. To quote her own words, (we have all seen the clip at sometime or other) "He spoke with a lot of vehemence" If Jeremy Bamber rang Julie and said " tonight's the night" and then lo and behold the family get murdered that very night.

Truthfully, I think it's probably beyond us to understand. In fairness, I don't believe he did "touch her" after the murders -I think it's in one of her statements?- but she'd probably outlived her usefulness to him so his need for her diminished. Besides which, he probably had big plans for a life which didn't include her. He just needed her onside for a little longer.

I really don't recall that she was treated like a heroine. She never came across as a sympathetic character. I believe there were complaints from some of the parents of the children who attended the school where she was a student teacher and she had to leave. I seem to recall there was an arrogance about her. I see it now through rather different eyes and imagine it was a protective mask.

I agree that there are distinct similarities between her and Maxine Carr. I'll never know why she wasn't prosecuted but I think some sort of deal must have been done. They were hardly going to prosecute someone who was their potential star witness. Her added value was that, unlike MC, she was an intelligent, educated girl, who was capable of doing something with her life. They weren't going to need to change her name and hairstyle at the tax payer's expense.

They didn't need to butter her up, and promise immunity. She went to the police and made the accusation,  she made statements, they didn't need to promise her anything.

As for this "relief" she must have felt, did she feel anything else? Shame perhaps? Did she feel she could have prevented the death of those five people, including two little children? Did she say sorry to everyone for covering it up, and for supporting Jeremy? She sold her story, so where was her shame then?

I wonder how many battered wives you've met? How many women who live in fear of their partners do you know? They COULD walk away. They COULD go to the police. Most don't. Rumour has it -and I'm not in a position to verify it- that she understood, very well, what an abusive relationship was.

Maxine carr was away in Grimsby the night Ian Huntley committed his crime. She provided an albi for Huntley because it was the man she loved. And because he had previously been accused of rape. And she believed him innocent and didn't want him to come under suspcion. There is a great deal of difference in my opinion. If Jeremy Bamber told Julie mugford that he planned to do away with his family earlier that very  day,  and then lo and behold they are killed that very night  She must have concluded he was responsible. There's no logical explanation why she didn't mention this to the authorities straight away in my opinion.

Oh, I can't imagine that it didn't cross her mind. Do YOU never experience ambivalent feelings? Why should she be any different? I've already said that I think she behaved VERY badly. In fact, she behaved like the trollop many were saying she was. Who of us haven't done things, in our younger, sillier days, which come back to haunt us now? Perhaps we feel more shame about them now, than we did at the time? I imagine she's worked very hard at leaving that person behind.

And she believed him innocent and didn't want him to come under suspcion. There is a great deal of difference in my opinion. If Jeremy Bamber told Julie mugford that he planned to do away with his family earlier that very  day,  and then lo and behold they are killed that very night  She must have concluded he was responsible. There's no logical explanation why she didn't mention this to the authorities straight away in my opinion.

So why was it okay for MC to protect the man she loved, but wrong for JM to do the same. Don't forget he told her he couldn't have done it and hired a hitman to do it for (the princely sum of) £2000.

Oh, I can't imagine that it didn't cross her mind. Do YOU never experience ambivalent feelings? Why should she be any different? I've already said that I think she behaved VERY badly. In fact, she behaved like the trollop many were saying she was. Who of us haven't done things, in our younger, sillier days, which come back to haunt us now? Perhaps we feel more shame about them now, than we did at the time? I imagine she's worked very hard at leaving that person behind.

Sillier days? We're not talking about stealing a lollipop from a shop, we're talking about the gruesome murder of five people!

I agree. The jury found Carr not guilty of assisting an offender. It was accepted that she did not know that Huntley had killed those girls. Julie did know Jeremy had done it - or claimed later that she knew.

I wonder how many battered wives you've met? How many women who live in fear of their partners do you know? They COULD walk away. They COULD go to the police. Most don't. Rumour has it -and I'm not in a position to verify it- that she understood, very well, what an abusive relationship was.
she was in the midst of a murder investigation. This was not a woman chained to the kitchen sink frightened to leave the house. She was the girlfriend of Jeremy Bamber whose family had been murderded. What stopped her on the first meeting if she was armed with the knowledge of what Jeremy had told her, telling the police. How much could a threat to her could Jeremy Bamber be in the close vicinity of police officers if she had mentioned this as soon as she could. Then the police investigation would have focused on Jeremy Bamber from the start. Why didn't she ???

Ian Huntley by all accounts ( and was judged in a court of law) told Maxine carr he had not done the crime. She provided him in albi because she loved the man and believed him innocent and did not want him to come under suspcion

Who knows why she didn't? The best answer I can give is that she was in denial and remained so until she discovered he was seeing another woman. I think it's highly likely that had he married her she may have kept her mouth shut................until he had his first affair? I've said that she probably went through a gamut of emotions -she probably went through a whole lot of thoughts, not least of which would have been how to make it come right for her.

Never miss an opportunity to have a dig, do you?

What was it that Jeremy told Julie? Wasn't there something about her being charged with being an accomplice if she said anything? I imagine she'd have been pretty desperate to save her own skin. and for the record, I think she probably knows more about it than she revealed -whether or not she believed it when she was told is another matter- it COULD be said that Jeremy might have something on her? Unfortunately for him, if he says anything, he drops himself right in it.

Well now, I think I'd find that easier to accept if NGB were to say it. I believe that Jeremy also had arranged a deal with a newspaper for when he got off? Story, book, film? The whole kit and kaboodle, undoubtedly. Either way, it might make her equally as devious as him, but doesn't make Jeremy innocent.

Rivlin QC told the jury: "The prosecution said Miss Mugford would have had to have had a convoluted mind to have made all this up. We say that she has."That Matthew (Mac-Donald) story is not only wrong in itself, but contains in it a number of details which can be proved to be untrue and which she can only have got from the police or Ann Eaton"

Why was he allowed to tell this to the Jury? here's why

Jeremy's "confession"

Below is what Julie claims Jeremy confessed to her. This statement is false for two reasons. Jeremy's alleged confession of the crime as told by Julie Mugford does not correspond or coincide with the actual crime scene itself, as we all know Shelia was found on the floor not on the bed, the bible next to her also on the floor not on her chest. Had Jeremy committed the murders and given a detailed confession as Julie claims then Julies statements would corroborate the crime scene and they don't!

(http://s30.postimg.org/4co0gw6ht/mugford1.png)

The second reason Julies statement is false is because her description of Jeremy's alleged confession is exactly the same as Ann Eaton and RWB's impression of events as seen in Ann Eatons notes and RWB's diary written in August. See below

Ann Eaton's note's second line down "Shelia on bed bible on chest"

RWB's Diary
(http://s23.postimg.org/eegx5omrf/rwbdiary1.jpg)

So not only can we establish that Julies claims are false we can now narrow down were she actually got that information from. Either Police or Ann Eaton as Rivlin rightly told the jury.


More disturbing correlations


Windows and the Bike

In August RWB speculates that Jeremy used a bike then also in august RWB and AE speculate how Jeremy would enter the building

(http://s10.postimg.org/kmegatna1/rwbwindows.png)

Then come September the 8th Julie reveals how Jeremy "confessed" to her his method of travel and entry, exactly how RWB and AE predicted!

The Wet suit

On the 28th of August Robert Boutflour speculates that Jeremy used a wet suit in the murders

This then appears in Julie Mugford's diary along with the bicycle

The £2000.00 payment

2nd of September RWB claims Jeremy lent a friend £2000

Julie then claims that Jeremy paid Macdonald £2000

The Fingerprints and the gun magazine


In August Robert Boutflour speculates that Jeremy got Shelia to load the bullets into the magazine to get her fingerprints on them.

(http://s18.postimg.org/urhcc1fgp/rwbfingerprints.jpg)

Then come September lo and behold Julie claims this is exactly what Jeremy had confessed to her.
(http://s8.postimg.org/f3y3s6tyd/jmfingerprints.png)


This is why Julies statements are completely false, Her statements have direct parallels with Ann Eaton notes and RWBs diary both of which deviate from the facts of the crime scene and contradict other factual aspects surrounding the case. Therefore Jeremy did not and could not have confessed or told her anything in her statements, it is impossible!



Rivlins point was that Julies testimony could only have come from either the police or Ann Eaton (His words are on record). I have shown you the trial transcripts and the very statements mentioned in those trial transcripts.

The fundamental point Julies statements claim that Jeremy has confessed to her in much detail. How he entered and exited who he killed in what order and what "mistakes" he had made (basically everything).

1. If her words are true, her words would be corroborated with the scene of crime (and they are not) they are identical to the false impressions AE and RWB had.

2. If her words are true she would not have mentioned anything about the state of the fingerprints on the gun. Only the police (and whoever else they told) would know about that situation via the tests they done)

3. If her word are true she WOULD have mentioned the silencer. Why is the silencer absent from her statements? Because she "came forward" on the 8th of September BUT the blood was not discovered inside the silencer until LATE September when Hayward and fletcher dismantled it and found blood. The information has not been reported yet thus she cannot be fed that information hence that is why it is absent!

One only has to read Julie Mugfords statements and the cross examination of Ann Eaton to workout were Julie really got those false details from in order for her to make the bogus claim that Jeremy confessed to the killings. The devil is in the details, its just a matter of putting the puzzle together.

From Julie Mugford’s statement, page 23

"I have been asked if I have read or been told about a bible found on Sheila's
chest when she was found dead. I can definitely say I haven't but it was
told to me by Jeremy. I will add that some time after the 7th August 1985,
Ann EATON asked me if I knew about a bible which was near Sheila and I told
her that I did and that it was found on her chest.
I think I told her it
was creepy. I think she asked me about the bible on the Friday of the week of the murders.”



This makes no sense. If Ann Eaton had asked Julie question of the bible some time after the 7th August then Julie answers to Ann that the bible was on Sheila's chest, Then she would have asked Julie how she got that information and Julie would have had to tell her that Jeremy told her the story about Matthew MacDonald. ?

In the trial transcript below. While cross examined by Rivlin QC, at first AE said that she thought she had first heard about the bible on Sheila's chest from Julie Mugford, but Rivlin QC was setting a trap to force AE to admit she actually got that information from the police  by showing her her own statement which she sais she got the information from the police at the house. Another interesting observation, is that AE seems to remember the police telling her all the details mentioned in the statement but when it comes to bible she just happens to forget. Selective memory loss at times most convenient when it comes to the big issues seems to occur often in AE.  ::)

Ann Eaton trial testimony: cross examined 7th October 1986
RIVLIN. I would like to ask you another thing about Julie Mugford, and it is this
something I was going to ask you before the luncheon adjournment- there
came a stage shortly after the events when a police officer told you something
in confidence, did he not, about what had happened and what had been found?
Do you remember? He told you, amongst other things, that when 'Sheila had
been found there was a bible on her chest?

AE. I did hear there was a bible on her chest.

MR. JUSTICE DRAKE (To the witness): Did you hear it from the policeman is the
question?

AE. I cannot remember, but I heard it whilst in Jeremy's cottage.

MR. RIVLIN: Let remind you. Is it not right that one of the police officers
told you that Uncle Nevill was in the kitchen near the coal scuttle, that the
twins were in their beds, shot?

AE. Yes.

Rivlin. That Aunt June Bamber and Sheila were both on the bed, shot, with Sheila having
a bible on her chest, with the gun beside her?

AE. Yes.

Rivlin. And is it right that shortly after that information had been imparted to you,
you had a conversation with Julie Mugford, and you told Julie that when Sheila.
had been found there had been a bible found on her chest?

AE. I really cannot remember who told me the bible was on the chest.

MR JUSTICE DRAKE (To the witness): That is not the question now, but it is right
you should tell us. You do not remember who told you that Sheila was found
with the bible on her chest, but the question now is, whoever it was who told
you that, did you pass that on to Julie?

AE. I do not remember. I did have a conversation with Julie about the same time.
She said to me Sheila kept saying, I thought she said she was a "white wedge", or perhaps it was a “white
witch", but I do not remember who told me that the bible was on the chest.

MR. JUSTICE Drake: I do not think we have the full answer yet, Mr. Rivlin.

MR. RIVLIN: Would you accept that it was, in fact, one of the officers who told
you that Sheila was found with a bible on her chest and the gun beside her?

AE. I cannot remember who told me the bible was on her chest, so I am saying
it could have been Julie. I cannot remember who told me.

RIVLIN. In those circumstances I think that I must show the document to the witness.

MR. JUSTICE DRAKE: What the witness just said is “it could have been Julie who
told me that" - that Sheila was found with a bible on her chest. (To the
witness): Wherereas the question you are being asked is put the other way around
That someone told you and you told Julie that she had been found with a bible
on her chest. That is the question. If you cannot answer, you cannot
?

AE. I cannot remember. I just remember Julie saying something about Sheila
said she was a “white wedge", which I thought she said, but it turned out she
thought she was a "white witch", but I cannot remember who told me about the
bible.

MR. RIVLIN: Could you remember at the time who told you about the bible?

AE. I cannot remember.

RIVLIN. You made statements to the police officers, did you not, in this case, and I
would like you to look, please, at a statement which is dated 8th September
1985. (Same handed). Your signature appears on this document. Is it a
typewritten document? Does it bear your signature?

AE. No.

MR RIVLIN: I am told that the original is outside.

MR. ARLIDGE: I will have it checked with the original.

MR RIVLIN: Do you see that? The third paragraph. Does it read as follows:
"One of the officers told me that Uncle Nevill Bamber was in the kitchen near
the coal scuttle. The twins were in their bed, shot, Aunt June and Sheila
Bamber both on the bed, shot, with Sheila Bamber having a bible on her
chest with the gun beside her"?


AE. Yes.

Q. Does that help you to remember, Mrs. Eaton? You did say that to the police?

A. Yes, I must have done, because it is written down here. I can remember
the policeman telling me Uncle Nevill was beside the coal scuttle, the twins
were in their beds, shot, Auntie June and Sheila were on the bed with the gun
between them, and I asked how they were shot, and he went like this. I do
not know who told me. I am sorry. Maybe it was a mistake. Asking me now.
I cannot remember who told me.



This is a fantastic post from Hermann over at IA

1 Julie Mugford is a proven liar.

Here's some background information from Robin Cox.

"Ann Eaton said herself in a statement that a police officer told her Sheila and June were found on the bed and that Sheila had the bible on her chest and the gun by her side which was not the prosecution's case at all. Did this give the family leverage in their arguments with Assistant Chief Inspector Simpson? The relatives didn’t like Jeremy, whom they called ‘Cuckoo’ on account of both he and Sheila being adopted but I won’t digress into that here."
http://www.jeremybambertestimony.co.uk/robin-cox

The idea is that the relatives were told that Sheila's body was on the bed at one stage and therefore also knew that it must have been the police who stage managed it on the floor. Robert Boutflour was convinced that Bamber was the killer. Some supporters of Bamber think that the police had to go along with the relatives and prosecute Bamber because the relatives knew Sheila's body was on the bed before it was moved to the floor by the police. That is what Cox means by leverage.

Bamber's confession to Julie Mugford

Julie Mugford account of Jeremy's confession includes a story of how Matthew MacDonald put a bible on Sheila's chest after telling her to shoot herself on the bed. So the description of the position of Sheila's body which the policeman gave to Ann Eaton turns up in Julie Mugford's story almost verbatim. It corresponds exactly to how Matthew MacDonald is supposed to have left the body. Mugford tells how Jeremy told her that MacDonald left Sheila's body on the bed with a bible on her chest. It's in Mugford's statment. The police had not told Jeremy that story and it's dismissed as a mistake anyway. So it's impossible that Mugford had gotten it from Bamber.

Here's what Ann Eaton says in her statement of 08/09/85 when told where the bodies were found.

"One of the officers told me that Uncle Nevill Bamber was in the kitchen near the coal scuttle. The twins were in their bed, shot, Aunt June and Sheila Bamber both on the bed, shot, with Sheila Bamber having a bible on her chest with the gun beside her"

Here's what Julie Mugford says in her statement of 08/08/1985 page 14

"I asked Jeremy if the twins and Sheila had felt anything and he told me the boys were sound asleep and didn’t wake up and that Sheila had lay down on the bed and shot herself under the orders of Mathew who then put a bible on her chest."

The devil is in the detail

I find it strange that people ignore this telling detail and that when somebody mentions it, even people who are fence sitters just ignore it and get back to talking about Julie and saying that her evidence has "the ring of truth about it". But how can it have the ring of truth when you can point to virtual proof that she lied. I have a theory as to why that kind of thing tends to happen.

Some people like talking about Julie Mugford just like others like talking about Amanda Knox. Of course anybody familiar with the scientific evidence knows that Knox and Solecito are innocent, but people like having something to talk about. They like the element of mystery. Hayden Panettiere undersood that when, talking about Amanda, she said to a bunch of reporters "Did she or didn't she?" So in just the same way, they like the discussion about Julie Mugford which has at it's basis the question "Who is telling the truth Julie Mugford or Jeremy Bamber."

When the Judge put the question to the jury "It depends on whether you believe Julie Mugford or Jeremy Bamber" he was being a prima donna. He was going for saying something catchy for the popular press. But he shouldn't have been doing that. You can excuse Hayden for a little lapse of judgement, but you can't make excuses for a judge misdirecting a jury. He should have drawn the jury's attention to the bible on the chest detail which was examined in court. He could have said. "Are we to believe that it's just a coincidence that Jeremy Bamber made up a story which just happens to have in it exactly the same description of a scene with Sheila's body on the bed with a bible on her chest." But he didn't. He apparently wanted to help the prosecution and to hinder the defense. It happens a lot.

The devil is in the detail

There is a saying, the devil is in the detail. Such a detail is to me proof that Julie Mugford's story of Bamber's confession is a fabrication. It has bits and pieces which come from here and there. But I admit that a person sympathetic to Mugford could argue in the manner

" Well OK, she embellished the story a little with that description of the body on the bed which she had obviously gotten from Ann Eaton, probably because she thought people might not believe her, but I still believe she was telling the truth when she said that Jeremy told her he had paid Matthew MacDonald. There is no proof that she made that up.
"

Hermann



Evidence was withheld at trial, alternatively fresh evidence is now available which indicates that Jeremy Bamber telephoned his then girlfriend Julie Mugford at 3.30am in the morning of 7th August and that both Julie Mugford and Susan Battersby lied in evidence when they timed the called at 3.15am and 3.12 am respectively.

The 3.30am Phone Call Overview:
20. The timing of Jeremy Bamber's phone call to Julie Mugford in the early hours of 71h August 1985 was also of "crucial importance- at trial, His Honour Mr Justice Drake's summing, up at p.12 B. Much evidence was adduced to show that the call had been made at or about 3,15um. This meant that the eau must have been made prior to the Appellant's call to the Chelmsford police station

21.
The Police's own contemporaneous record of the Appellant's call on 7th August 1985, appended to this document, has now come to light. It reveals that the Appellant's initial call to Chelmsford Police station was recorded, in error as conceded at trial, as 3.36am. More importantly it shows that having first spoken to the Appellant and established the nature of the problem in some detail the officer at Chelmsford phoned Witham Police station at 3.26am, that being undisputedly a correct time. It is therefore submitted that the Appellant's initial call to the Police must have been some minutes before 3.26am.

Ann Eaton's Notes In Relation to The Call to Julie Mugford:

22. Ann Eaton's allegedly contemporaneous notes regarding 8th August disclosed at trial stated that there had been a "muddle about the right time of the 3.15 phone call - a London friend was called".

A further note has since been found which reveals that in her original note she stated "talked to Julie about the phone calls Julie said re flatmate (our emphasis - photocopy is poor here exact wording should be clear on viewing of the original) 3.30am". It is submitted that this discrepancy shows that not only was Ann Eaton's note deliberately changed to undermine the appellant's case but that Julie Mugford and Susan Batteresby lied when they gave evidence that the telephone call was 3.15am or earlier, as it was Susan Battersby who was the flatmate referred to it the undisclosed Ann Eaton note.

Julie Mugford's Evidence:
23. In her original statement to the Police dated 81h August 1985 stated at p345:
next time I heard front Jeremy was at about 3.30am on Wednesday morning the th August 1985."
This then changes in her statement of e September 1985 when she states :
" I have since found out from a friend of mine Susan Battersby who lives with
me that it was about 3.15am."
At trial when she was cross examined as to the fact that she had told the police that the telephone call was received at 3.30am, she stated at p38 on 8th October:



Rivlins point was that Julies testimony could only have come from either the police or Ann Eaton (His words are on record).

The fundamental point is Julies statements claim that Jeremy has confessed to her in much detail. How he entered and exited who he killed in what order and what "mistakes" he had made (basically everything).

1. If her words are true, her words would be corroborated with the scene of crime (and they are not) they are identical to the false impressions AE and RWB had.

2. If her words are true she would not have mentioned anything about the state of the fingerprints on the gun. Only the police (and whoever else they told) would know about that situation via the tests they done)

3. If her word are true she WOULD have mentioned the silencer. Why is the silencer absent from her statements? Because she "came forward" on the 8th of September BUT the blood was not discovered inside the silencer until LATE September when Hayward and fletcher dismantled it and found blood. The information has not been reported yet thus she cannot be fed that information hence that is why it is absent!

You cannot get round these points no matter how much you bring up the sleeping pills or fire. Its rather obvious the police zeroed in on those pills and did not buy her original innocent explanation for them, thus she made up something they wanted to hear from her.

I am not quoting word for word here but it goes like this

Julie Mugford - "Jeremy told me that Sheila was told to lay on the bed and was ordered to shoot herself under the supervision of Mathew Macdonald he then left the bible on the her chest" (Jeremy is supposed to have told her this on the 7th of August at his cottage while the house was occupied by many other people  )

Julie Mugford - "On the 7th I told Ann Eaton about the bible on her chest"

Anne Eaton - "On the 7th Police told me Sheila was found laying on the bed with a bible on her chest"

Ann Eaton - " I cant remember who told me on the 7th" (Just after confirming the police told her various details she obviously remembers. problem being she was told about the bible in the exact same conversation)

The idea of the bible being a "meme" is not credible because there are too many similarities with her statement as a whole. The probability of it being coincidental, you are looking at almost jackpot lottery odds. (Bible on chest + Sheila on Bed + Exiting windows + Cycling to the farm + Fingerprints on gun + wetsuit + 2000 pounds + a McDonald mentioned in police meeting + Hitman to explain the reported movement)

All of these can either be found in Julies testimony or her "diary". Most importantly Jeremy is supposed to have told her all this. This means that what Jeremy told her in his alleged "confessions" he deliberately falsified how he killed everyone so it just so happens to be the same as Ann Eatons and RWBs erroneous information. Not only that but he also falsifies his "confessions" so what he tells her just so happens to explain the gaps and problems the police were facing at that moment in time! gaps and problems that later turned out to be wrong! Then Jeremy decides not to tell her about the silencer, the one piece of crucial evidence that was only discovered to be incriminating in the weeks AFTER Julie made her statements.

Its just not possible for Jeremy to have told her all this in the way its been presented by her coinciding with the circumstances of the police investigation and the relatives suspicions in that instance of time. With some of those circumstances and ideas backfiring, thus harming her credibility later on.

Lets look at Mathew Mcdoanld for example.

1. Robert Boutflour speculates if Jeremy had assistance on the night - See Diary

2. Robert Boutflour zeros in on the £2000 that Neville lent to Jeremy - See Diary

3. The £2000 of course has an innocent explanation and is totally unrelated to the event. but RWB believes he is onto something (Tunnel vision)

4. Jeremy is supposed to have lent this £2000 to a friend - See Diary

5. 20th of August police have a meeting with RWB present. During that meeting a question is put forward in relation to a drug deal (from a man called McDonald??) See Barlow's note book

6. Jeremy has a friend called Mathew Mcdonald they both do drugs together - See MMs statement

7. Mathew Mcdonald happens to a fantasist who goes around telling people he is a mercenary and has done missions in Libya. People believe the rumours - see MMs statement

According to Julie. Jeremy told her that he paid £2000 to Mathew Mcdonald to help him carry out the killings. The fact of the matter is a sum of £2000 went somewhere else. Mathew Macdonald is a mercenary only in his imagination plus he was miles away from the farm that night. Robert Bouflour and Stand Jones ignorant of the facts at the time. To them this theory would make perfect sense to them. Jeremy's "mercenary" friend and drug associate complete with a money trail and can explain the reported movement in the farm while Jeremy was outside with the police.

I will leave you to decide where Julie got the story from.

Well, it was West who wrote 'sister' and Bonnet who wrote 'daughter' and no one is claiming Bonnet received a call from Nevill! Did both Nevill and Jeremy forget Sheila's married name?
I will say it again " my daughter is 26 years old my sister is 27 years old" the funny thing is she had turned 28 in June or July ( I can't be specific if it is June 18th or July 18th) I think it's the latter. In any event, if the same person made two calls they would say the same age. Why does the police have shelias age at both 26 and 27???

Probably because none of us are Julie Mugford. There is no one here who can answer why she did anything. If you want to know why she did something, you need to ask her or read her statements. Any suggestion provided by anyone who believes Bamber guilty will always be rebuked as 'illogical' and could only ever be an opinion - and you're only interested in FACTS right?

The police log with her age at 26 is from West to Bonnet.

The police log with her age at 27 is from Jeremy to West that was probably written over a month later.

All the discrepancies can be put down to Wests poor record keeping.

Another possibility is that someone said he age was 26 or 27 but only one figure got written down.

We don't know for sure that they were intimate. She wanted to leave but he said he needed her. He was taking valium tablets washed down with alcohol. She pressed him about the murders, whereupon he made up the hitman story on the spot, hence the inaccuracies which David1819 has pounced upon.

West admits he completed the C1 form/log after talking to Jeremy! It's in his first statement dated 9th Aug 1985 so he must have written the time he stared writing the log, not the time he spoke to Jeremy.

Yes but his 9th Aug statement has the correct time he received the call (before 3:26am)

My theory is that he did write 3:26am on the call log but wrote everything down so badly and illegible he had to re-do it from memory a month later.

Its already been pointed out on red that there are two versions of Wests 3:36am log. Hence I don't believe either are the origional log.

Yes, because he has consulted with the control room by the time he made the statement and corrected the time. I have seen the logs you're referring to and have copes, they ALL state 03:36.

What I have posted isn't a theory, he admits to completing the C1 form AFTER speaking to Bamber and THAT is significant!

Woohoooo!! The reason that they didn't know West wrote the C1 form AFTER speaking to Jeremy is because his 9th of August statement wasn't at trial!

That sorts that out! Jeremy couldn't have called at 03:36!

Yes it was.

We don't know for sure that they were intimate. She wanted to leave but he said he needed her. He was taking valium tablets washed down with alcohol. She pressed him about the murders, whereupon he made up the hitman story on the spot, hence the inaccuracies which David1819 has pounced upon.
Steven if we go by Julie's statements he had told her he had been planning it all day. Why did Julie not inform the police at the earliest opportunity. This is not a scenario where someone is protesting innocence and the spouse/partner is on the fence in decline et Al. " It wasn't me honey they're talking bollocks. If we are to believe Julie Jeremy was planning to do it. And then it happend. Why no mention to Essex police from the immediate outset???

If you don't believe you've received any logical, sensible answers, from us, as to why she continued to sleep with him -incidentally, she claims there was no sex after the murders- perhaps you have one of your own you'd like to share with us.

Probably because none of us are Julie Mugford. There is no one here who can answer why she did anything. If you want to know why she did something, you need to ask her or read her statements. Any suggestion provided by anyone who believes Bamber guilty will always be rebuked as 'illogical' and could only ever be an opinion - and you're only interested in FACTS right?
because you know Julie is talking a load of shite.

If he could remember the time on the 9th of august, then he would have remembered the time just after the call had happened.

West told Bonnet that Sheila was aged 26 Yet Wests phone log states 27.

I just get impression his phone log was so illegible and embarrasing they made him do it again.

At that venture he didn't realise the time was important and he would have gotten the time from the control room NOT by memory when he complied his statement. He admits to having been told his time was incorrect by the control room so he must have liaised.

The police log with her age at 26 is from West to Bonnet.

The police log with her age at 27 is from Jeremy to West that was probably written over a month later.

All the discrepancies can be put down to Wests poor record keeping.

Another possibility is that someone said he age was 26 or 27 but only one figure got written down.
let's say for example only Jeremy Bamber made the call and said she was 26. If a despatcher received that information about her age he would not be mistaken in it
 How many times do you reckon even by 1985 standards you  get a call on the early hours of a midweek day of that magnitude? This wasn't a routine burglary stolen car thing there is no way that copper got those ages mixed up. He was told by two different people

No, he wasn't! If Bamber had said 26/27 West could have had either number in mind. As he didn't fill C1 form until after the call from Jeremy, it would be easy to write either age down.

And yet she was actually 28, not long had a birthday so her dad was hardly likely to get it wrong.

Short of being psychic, how do you expect "that copper" -incidentally, it sounds like you have little respect for police- to get right what the caller got wrong? Do you think Jeremy kept a Birthday book to reference family birthdays? I can't think of anything more natural, when being asked for/giving someone's age, than hedging one's bets slightly, unless of course, it's a mother talking about the age of her new baby. She'll probably have it right to the minute. So, given that he accepted that 26/27 was correct, it was of no consequence what wrote and what he passed on, ONE of the ages would be right. As it happens, neither were. She was 28. Perhaps you're suggesting West should have known that? Sheila's age wasn't the only thing Jeremy got wrong, was it? He didn't give her name correctly, either.

Whether he was emotionally ready isn't the question. He must have believed he was ready to settle down or he wouldn't have done it.

What do you call " settling down ?" How long was he with the woman ? Not that long I suspect. He was flitting about from one to the other in a world of flattery ( older woman ) and fantasy because he wasn't settled at all he only thought he was. He'd have gone along like that as young men do, but sadly was never given the chance.

"How long" is irrelevant. I'm willing to bet, that when he moved in with her, he believed this was "IT" and probably wasn't playing the field. That he BELIEVED it was real at the time is what's important.

For God's sake stop thinking for Jeremy, Lookout. Allow him some space for his own thoughts instead of claiming you know everything about him. I wonder if June was the same? It's usually only 24 year olds who still allow their parents to tell them how to live their lives, and adhere to it, who are emotionally unready for the next step. We ALL have to learn for ourselves whether we were right or wrong.

Perhaps you'd care to explain, what, of Jeremy's behaviours, has led you to the conclusion that "JB was beginning to come to his senses"? It was actually "following his head instead of his heart" that caused the problems. Young men don't screw around with their hearts, they do it with their heads. It probably also follows that if he was thinking with Nevill's head it was the wrong direction for him.

I think it shook him up badly and he was on the rebound when he met Julie. She served the purpose of steadying his nerve and inflating his self-esteem, doormat as she was. Remember this crime was all about the power that accompanied money: the feet up on Nevill's desk post-murders signified from whom the power had passed and who was now firmly in charge.

If you bothered to read past posts on this topic, you will see it has been done to death!! However - Wests log contains Jeremy's details and Bonnett wrote down Nevill's details as this was the form that contained the potential victims details and an account of the issue. Bonnett makes it CLEAR! that he is documenting information from Cd 1990 which is West's call sign and that the information received was from the SON (Jeremy) of Mr Bamber!

D'you know. I'm beginning to think it might be a good idea for you to do a bit of role play. Just imagine for a moment that you're West and "Brrr Brrr" the phone rings. A voice, who you eventually ascertain to be Jeremy Bamber tells you that he's received a call from his father, Nevill Bamber, telling, of his sister, "She's gone berserk and got hold of a gun" and the line went dead. Jeremy Bamber then goes on to tell you his sister's age and name along with his father's address and telephone number.  NOW, you need to relay the message to someone who can get help out to them. I challenge you to try, without taking half an hour to do it.

D'you know. I'm beginning to think it might be a good idea for you to do a bit of role play. Just imagine for a moment that you're West and "Brrr Brrr" the phone rings. A voice, who you eventually ascertain to be Jeremy Bamber tells you that he's received a call from his father, Nevill Bamber, telling, of his sister, "She's gone berserk and got hold of a gun" and the line went dead. Jeremy Bamber then goes on to tell you his sister's age and name along with his father's address and telephone number.  NOW, you need to relay the message to someone who can get help out to them. I challenge you to try, without taking half an hour to do it.
ok we will do role play. If only one individual speaks to you. How do you get the following phrases " acting on the information and " my daughter " furthermore you still haven't answered my Julie question. Where is my logical answer I asked for 24 hours ago???

If you bothered to read past posts on this topic, you will see it has been done to death!! However - Wests log contains Jeremy's details and Bonnett wrote down Nevill's details as this was the form that contained the potential victims details and an account of the issue. Bonnett makes it CLEAR! that he is documenting information from Cd 1990 which is West's call sign and that the information received was from the SON (Jeremy) of Mr Bamber! The Jury saw the log, it wasn't withheld and neither was West's = although the CT will have you believe it was.
absolute bollocks if only one person made a call that night there would be ONLY a reference to a " Mr Jeremy Bamber 9 head street goldhanger" you can't deny that " MY daughter has got hold of one of MY guns and not get to the conclusion of a second party. Stop being ludicrous

Not just by the likes of you and I, he's had TWO appeal and numerous submissions to the CCRC - which has ALL failed because there is nothing that shows he's innocent. It's your opinion that he should have a retrial - but if new evidence worth it's salt comes to light (not holding my breath), then he would deserve one.

By the way, Essex police weren't looking for a silencer - why would they be when they thought it was four murders and a suicide and no reason to think a silencer was used?

For someone not championing Bambers innocence, you're doing a VERY GOOD impression! The two men who wrote the logs at NO TIME mention a call from Nevill Bamber and just because YOU (and other conspiracy theorists) don't like the way they were written - well, bad grammar and sloppy habits doesn't make Bamber innocent. There were two phone calls - one from Jeremy Bamber to PC West and the other from PC West to Bonnett.

A rough guess says it was a bit like Chinese whispers with West changing it from the third person to the first person for ease and speed of conveyance. Police aren't required to have a degree in English Language. How many times do members post stuff here that it's hard to make head or tail of? How many times do they put other interpretations onto something?

For an alleged neutral, you do a damn fine job of defending Jeremy, Julie in particular taking a bashing. I think the best you can do, if you want to know what may have motivated her, is to read her statements, empty your head of your own 'stuff' and see if you can get inside her head.

By George!!! I DO believe he's got it. It still needs a bit of a tweak, though. Jeremy didn't report a massacre, he only reported an alleged phone call from his father. He DID give them Nevill's home address. It would have been a bit of a waste if they'd turned up in Head Street

The very simple answer is that West changed from the third person to the first. You're clearly hell bent on repeating certain questions so you'd best be prepared for getting the same answers. Though they're unlikely to be the ones you want.

You're one of the police officers that discover 4 bodies all clearly murdered by gun shots.  Then a 5th body with a gun laying across them is also found you all quickly conclude 4 murders and a suicide. Now at which point do you suggest they go and look for a silencer?

I have read the dialogue hundreds of times but you're the one who needs to take a breather and see that you're sucked into the conspiracy theory. There is no ruckus mentioned just that someone has hold of a gun and yes, there were indeed two phone calls - one from JEREMY Bamber to West and the other from West to Bonnett.

You're perfectly correct in that Nevill never reported a massacre -difficult when he was a victim- or phoned anyone. Jeremy told the police his father had phoned but he didn't say anything about a massacre, which rather suggests that police knew nothing of a massacre until they broke into the farmhouse.

BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T BLOODY LOOKING FOR ONE! There were other guns in the house, they didn't take them - why? Because the weapon was laying across the assumed perpetrators body!

A cursory glance!!!! They didn't just open that cupboard and there, conveniently in front of them, lay the silencer. Do you know what sort of cupboard it was? It was one of those under-stair spaces to which a door had been added. It was wedge-shaped. Said silencer was tucked neatly into the thin end, as far from the opening as possible.

Initially, there was nothing to suggest he wasn't telling the truth. HE wasn't even responsible for what, allegedly, had prompted his call. His FATHER had outlined what was the problem. Jeremy only passed on what his father had allegedly told him. Having got the police to the scene, Jeremy spent the next hour or so, reiterating and embroidering what his father had, allegedly said -I believe, at one point, saying Sheila had only just come out of a psych unit and was about to go back there, furthering this with stories about how it was being discussed that her children might be taken into some form of care, not possible, of course as their father had custody of them, but he didn't let that stand in the way. Then there was the major point of her being gun competent and having fired all the guns in the house!!!- when they eventually broke in, they found exactly what Jeremy had suggested they'd find, but bear in mind Jeremy was only backing up what he said his father had told him. Surely, if suspicion fell anywhere, it would fall on Nevill?

I got it and ignored it. What were they looking for when the initial thoughts were that it was 4 murders and a suicide? It's standard practice when you haven't got a perpetrator - they has one!
it's standard practice to search every nook and cranny of every MAJOR CRIME SCENE. Yes Jeremy Bambers account was the starting point but your seriously telling me that Essex police did not discover that silencer??? Come on, it wasn't secured beneath the floorboards.

They had already established what happened. There was nothing more to scrutinise. Two days later it was all being cleaned up.
already established what happened??? Are you for real? They had a starting point. Jeremy Bambers account to them. You go into a crimescene of this magnitude with an open mind. To quote DS Jones " he seemed to be trying to force himself to be sick it didn't ring true to me" a full search would have been yeilded and in my opinion it is crazy how a silencer was not found in the EARLIEST stages with BLOOD on it.

Steve stop wearing blinkers it was in a cupboard it later formed a main plank of the prosecutions case. " Discovered by realtives" as I will reteriate. This was a MAJOR CRIME SCENE. Why wasn't that silencer stained with blood discovered from the get go. I put empathise on DISCOVERED

Exactly, in YOUR OPINION! You can't see to grasp that they had no reason to be centred on a silencer, even if they found one! How many major crime scenes have you 'gone into'? Something you're clearly not taking into account, had they found the silencer in the manner you're suggesting and wanted to bring suspicion against Bamber from day one (those hardened coppers what don't no posh boy gov'ner), then  why not use it from day one and admit to finding it?

Ilovebooze you have to ask yourself why P C West covered up a call from Nevill when it would have confirmed his boss's suspicion, DCI Taff Jones, that the whole incident was "a domestic" and that Sheila had been the perpetrator.
how do you come to the conclusion he covered it up??. Why did he get two different ages in his log in such a short space of time?? As I've said previously, if you get a call from someone in the midweek and when you get a call from them of such seriousness you don't forget minor details. How was my the ages of 27 and 26 recorded and " your sister " my daughter " recorded???

But why would they look for something they had no reason to believe existed? It could justifiably be reasoned that a silencer hadn't been part of the murders as the 'suicide' who appeared to have been responsible was hardly likely to have used it on the victims, then gone to great lengths to hide it before committing suicide. Having the luxury of hindsight makes everything so much more clear, don't you think?

Jane it's not a case of hindsight. Regardless of what Jeremy Bamber had told them. This was a major crime scene. Regardless of what was initially relayed or believed. There should have been in my opinion ( and who knows maybe there was) a search of which within that silencer was discovered.

The police took photographs of the victims, but some were held back until years later. Two of the photographs show Sheila's right arm in different positions. Hence Sheila's arm was moved by someone other than Jeremy. How? Her body should have been in rigor mortis.

We know that Sheila was shot twice. Yet the police still assumed suicide. Such a suicide isn't impossible, but it suggests that suicide shouldn't be taken for granted. Perhaps there were special circumstances, such as the second shot having been accidentally caused by the police. A non-fatal first shot (a possibility admitted at trial) could explain why rigor mortis had not occurred.

It was never claimed to be a non fatal shot. Just that it was not instantly fatal.

The silencer business makes no sense to me. Let's say that Jeremy shot Sheila with the silencer attached, and then he tried to put the gun in her hands to suggest she killed herself. That's when he realised that she couldn't have reached the trigger with the silencer attached.

What was he to do? He could take the silencer off and put it on the floor. That's what Sheila would have done. Oh, but then he thinks Sheila's blood might be on it or in it, so he can't do that. He comes up with a bright idea - he can put it back in the cupboard as if it had never been used. Suddenly, the idea that there might be blood on it doesn't matter. A day or two later he lets the relatives have a key to the house where he knows there's a silencer in a cupboard with Sheila's blood on it or in it.

Something I find very interesting is how Jeremy Bambers initial story of his sister committing the massacre was not blown apart from the get go. When it was it was subsequently discovered that his sister had been shot twice. Even if she did shoot herself twice ( and it's been proven it is possible) why was that element of doubt not there from the get go

Yes, I agree. I think it depends on when it was discovered she had been shot twice. If it was immediately obvious when they found the body, that would surely raise a lot of doubt. If it was only discovered at the post mortem, and the examiner said that the shot was not immediately fatal, that would not necessarily raise questions.

So do I! Some might say he wasn't thinking straight at that point, or that he assumed nobody would find the silencer, and both those are possible, but I would have thought it was fundamental that the silencer disappeared along with the evidence.
Title: Re: Jeremy Bamber proven innocent?
Post by: Kaldin on November 09, 2019, 08:28:AM
The other possibility is that Jeremy decided to use the silencer so that others weren't alerted to the gunshots, and that he always planned to remove it from the gun at the end. He have might have decided to do that because he thought that Sheila wouldn't have bothered to go and find the silencer before going on her supposed rampage.

In that case, it might not have occurred to him that there might be blood on or in the silencer, but is that  likely?

Such has long been the contention of many here. I can only think that, until that point, things had gone swimmingly. Okay, there'd been a bit of a hiccough in the kitchen, but they were all dead.  The next kill was the REALLY important one. The whole validity of the whole scenario rested on getting it right. It mattered where the bullet went. Then he blows it!!!! It COULD all have been for nothing. I'd say, certainly, at that moment, he wasn't thinking straight.

That's another thing. How on earth do you plan for someone to lie down or sit down so you can shoot them in exactly the right place to make it look like suicide? I mean, it would take a great deal of effort to get the right angle - and all the time he's relying on Sheila lying still or sitting still.

Jeremy Bamber is not a stupid individual. If he had used that gun with a silencer. That silencer would have not even come into contention. Because he would have disposed of it. I find it very difficult at the same time to believe the police couldn't visualize from the outset of seeing shelia that she had been shot twice and not immediately become suspicious of Bamber. Thirdly, as you rightly point out how did Jeremy Bamber manage to position Shelia caffell to undertake the two shot scenario. Even if she had been incapacitated by one shot. She would have been fighting like a wildcat. Jeremy Bamber had no marks on him. It beggars belief

Which is my own reason for why the first shot was off target. My guess is, that because this kill was SO important, he was more concerned, than with the others, about getting it right. He could have positioned her/got her to position herself, perhaps taking too long? and at the last moment, she moved. It would only have taken a very slight movement for the angle to be wrong.

It's very clear to me that Sheila did not move much after that first shot, and then she was indeed shot where she was found. She might have tried to sit up a little, but that's all. That means that Jeremy would have had to make her sit down or lie down in her parents' bedroom in that particular place, whilst all the time trying to position the gun, and she just let him!

I just don't see how he could plan that. To my mind, the best plan would have been to shoot her in bed when she was unaware of what was happening, and then try to arrange the body so it looked like she lay down on her bed and shot herself.

But why would she just let him position her? Even if she did, he couldn't possibly have known that she would just let him do what he wanted when he planned it all.

It's very easy to say what we think happened from a physical distance of 30+ years and a psychological distance which is incalculable. Jeremy certainly wasn't stupid, but because, it's a reasonable assumption, I'm willing to bet that, at that moment, the first shot having failed to kill her, he was completely thrown. What he may have done, had it been successful, would have been blown out of the water. It came down to plan B, but he probably hadn't planned a plan B.

Re the police and their reaction to the two shots. They probably didn't react at the time -but it may, or not, be of interest to you, that my friend's late husband interviewed Jeremy at his cottage later that day and was in no doubt about his guilt. I doubt he was the only one- because generally, we believe those 'facts' we're tutored to believe.

Why do you appear to think Jeremy positioned Sheila for "a two shot scenario". Whilst two shot suicides are possible, they're certainly not usual. As for her "fighting like a wild cat"? Perhaps you should read what effects her injected medication was having on her. I'm not certain how you come to the conclusion that Jeremy had no marks on him. Whilst clothing could protect from most, there's the possibility that there were some which weren't visible.

But why would she just let him position her? Even if she did, he couldn't possibly have known that she would just let him do what he wanted when he planned it all.

If it had been a handgun I could have understood it, but it wasn't.

Well, naturally, neither you nor I would allow it without struggle, but neither of us are Sheila. My contention has always been that she was depressed -that's apart from the debilitating effects of her meds- and it's not impossible that she simply gave up. Depression is like a trough. At the bottom, the depressive lacks the mental energy required to kill themselves or anyone else. Sheila appears to have been close to that point. Who's to say Jeremy didn't tell her that she'd get the blame for it, anyway?

it's just my opinion. But even let's say Shelia was heavily medicated and Jeremy was trying to position her to kill her. Even if she was overpowered. She would have put up some sort of fight or resistance. Whether it be clawing. Kicking, biting or whatever. I also believe that she would have marked his face. As that's a logical place to strike back when your under attack. As far as I'm aware Jeremy Bamber did not possess any visible marks or bruises on his face when in contact with the police at the first stage 7.8.85?? And I don't recall any officer making a remark or a statement to visualising any facial injury to him. Again it's speculation. But it's a viable scenario

You're right. He couldn't. None of us can 100% control what another does when they still have a window of choice, however small, but if he wanted it to appear that she'd committed suicide, what were HIS alternatives?

I believe she would have definately fought. It's a natural human reaction. Even if heavily medicated. I find it surprising that Bamber didn't have an injury upon him ( face region) for an officer to prompt the question " how did you do that "

As I said, to shoot her first in bed before she knew what was happening, and then position the bed sheets and the gun afterwards.

This big plan of his depended solely on being able to shoot Sheila without her putting up a struggle, and he simply could not have planned for that unless she was asleep at the time.

By all accounts -but one- of Sheila's behaviours, that day, she was totally devoid of resistance or fight. Any last remaining vestige of it COULD have been dispelled by Jeremy telling her that she was going to be blamed for the massacre because it could never be proved he'd been there -you could strip this down to be less credible but you haven't got a gun pointing at you, and speaking of guns being pointed at you, my guess is that Sheila wasn't allowed to get anywhere near his face. He let the gun give the instructions, which makes correct your observation re his lack of facial marks.

 You're thinking with Kaldin's mind, rather than with Jeremy's. It was a "family" thing, the suggestion being that she'd lost it because her parents were threatening to take her children away. Much easier to emphasize this is to place her "en famille".

if the gun was giving all the instructions and Jeremy had total control. Why two shots? If she was so resistant and terrified of what he had said and was totally under his control he would have been able to shoot her where he wanted and in so for which ensured the first shot was near enough fatal.

I'm thinking with anyone's mind. I just don't think he could count on her being quiet enough to let him shoot her in the neck. Perhaps in his mind it didn't occur to him that she would fight, but he'd have to be pretty stupid not to consider that.

I don't read anything into there being two shots. Jeremy may well have thought that he had the right position - after all, it wasn't far off. What happened then though? Was she awake and groaning? There had to be a reason for him to shoot her again immediately rather than wait to see if she would die.

I find that strange. I'm perfectly convinced that it wasn't part of the plan. I'm equally convinced that it didn't occur to him that he MIGHT have to shoot her twice. No, it wasn't FAR off but a miss, however near, is always as good as a mile. He MAY have experienced a moment of real panic. He couldn't have known, that it would become fatal, just not immediately so. But how long is a piece of string. In that moment, might he have envisaged her getting to a phone and raising the alarm? Might he have seen her making a full recovery? I doubt that even he could have stood by watching her die slowly.

I also don't think he thought he would have to shoot her twice, but then he'd never shot anyone before that night, so he probably didn't know exactly where to shoot her. That's why I don't read anything into it. The same applies if she shot herself. She wouldn't know where exactly to position the gun.

a gun pointed at her? In a confused state? The domineering confident Jeremy bamber telling her she was going to get blamed for this so she might as well just do as he said. She would have been helpless. Petrified. I think he'd have been easily able to deliver one fatal shot.

I'm guessing, from how you write -think?- that there's no room in your life for any grey areas? I keep reading that "he/she/they WOULD/WOULDN'T have................." No wiggle room. No space for human error. No allowances. One expert witness makes the claim that Sheila COULD have moved after the first shot -although to be fair, he didn't say how far or how fast, and he didn't state which limbs she'd have used, OR whether it simply meant she could have moved her head slightly- Jeremy supporters have had her running up and down stairs and playing hide and seek with police on the back of this claim.

I think it would have been more important if Sheila couldn't have moved at all after the first shot - ie, if she had been unconscious. In that case she wouldn't have been able to fire the second shot. However, she was theoretically able to fire both shots, as was Jeremy (apparently), so is it relevant?

I doubt that anyone here, supporter or detractor, believes the investigation came high on the list of Essex Police's finest achievements, but their introduction to it was remarkably well thought through at the time, even though we can pick holes in it now. VERY cleverly, Jeremy had the information come from his well known and very well respected father, shifting away his own responsibility. All he had to do was embroider what his father had said, and making up anything, which suited his purpose, being said during the last meal he attended. Whilst individual members of the police clearly believed him guilty, it took a while for "top brass" to follow suit. Every day which passed was a day in Jeremy's favour because any evidence with might have been collected in the search you say SHOULD have been done, became lost or thrown away because they weren't thought to be necessary to the investigation.

If it was Jeremy, why would he go downstairs again, fire one or more bullet into Nevill, and then go back upstairs to plant the rifle on Sheila? Likewise, why would he go back into the twins' room and fire one more random shot at one of them? IMO, the twins were shot at the same time using one magazine.

Indeed, why would he kill Sheila, and then fire one or more bullets into June? He would only do that if June was still alive at that point.

Well, naturally, it depends on what, if anything, they were told to look for. Those who went in initially, weren't forensics, I believe? I truly don't believe they were looking for anything, other than possible survivors, when they first went in. Jeremy had solved the case for them. Also, what can't be ruled out, is that those men, even the seasoned police officers, walked in on a scene that they'd only ever experienced in theory. I can't imagine they weren't affected in some way.

Well, that simply remains your opinion. Personally, I believe the twins were basically executed with one shot each and later more shots were fired to make it look random. Any staging of the scene would have to be done after everyone was dead and as such (and in my opinion) it's a completely reasonable possibility. It's certainly a 'possibility' and not a fact that there was just two shots left in the rifle.

I don't agree at all. They were clearly shot at the same time - eight bullets - IMO.

Well, that simply remains your opinion. Personally, I believe the twins were basically executed with one shot each and later more shots were fired to make it look random. Any staging of the scene would have to be done after everyone was dead and as such (and in my opinion) it's a completely reasonable possibility. It's certainly a 'possibility' and not a fact that there was just two shots left in the rifle.





There'd have been a larger show of blood  everywhere than there was if a " staging  "had taken place.

When you consider how many shots were fired at June, there appeared to have been very little blood beneath her ?

No there wouldn't, if you shoot someone when they're already dead, there would be less blood, no heart beat to pump it out so you're kinda of proving my comment.

Surplus from wounds already there as there's nothing to stem the flows-----no clotting mechanism.

If Jeremy Bamber is guilty I do believe any initial plan would have been kicked to the curb, changed when the initial struggle with nevill had finished. He had not been expecting it. It would have shook him up and thrown him 360 degrees

Well it's not impossible that he planned to shoot them all as they slept. It would have been much less harrowing for him than the confrontation with Nevill.

Whether shot before or after death, the number of gun shots wouldn't change - blood still clots after death but with no heart beat to pump out the blood, your suggestion that there would be MORE blood is just inaccurate.

I don't agree at all. They were clearly shot at the same time - eight bullets - IMO.

Really, I think you're dredging up silly possibilities that have no bearing on reality. There is no reason for Jeremy to go and shoot anyone again, apart from June. It doesn't matter anyway - it was just a comment.

I think you're arguing for arguing sake - there is no 'clearly' about it.

The reason for the extra shots is for staging purposes. We all have our own opinions of what happened and I believe the twins died first - receiving one shot initially.

Your original comment was that there was only two shots at the end which seems coincidental, however, that isn't the only possibility.

I think it's you who's arguing for your own sake. You picked up on a minor point and made a big deal out of it, suggesting that Jeremy might have gone around shooting the others again - for no apparent reason.

I have given a reason and it wasn't a minor point - the point you 'seem' to be making is that it odd there being just two shots left and doesn't have to have been the case at all.

But your theory that anyone but June would have been shot again after She
