Possibly connected to his mental and physical disabilities.

Barry George wasn’t diagnosed with mild epilepsy until after he was arrested!

What physical disabilities are you referring to?

I thought he was born with epilepsy?  His older sister, Susan, died of epilepsy aged 28.

Diagnosed with mild epilepsy after his arrest. Was also assessed to be of average intelligence.

Please provide your source as to when BG was diagnosed with epilepsy.

William Clegg QC arranged all sorts of tests pre 2nd trial and Prof Koleman from Kings College, London put his iq at 75 placing him in the bottom 5% of the population.  To my mind on the verbal front he seems 'normal'/average but an iq test will obviously measure a lot more than just verbal ability.

Some 8 years after the murder?

Yes, but numerous tests were carried out pre first trial too.

Have you got the source for when BG was first diagnosed with epilepsy?

No idea but imo it gave a balanced view and was neither pro or against BG.

Barry, too, suffers from epilepsy, and the condition - which was not properly diagnosed until shortly before the trial - may have contributed to the mental problems he seems to have developed.

“It is now accepted that George does suffer from a mild form of epilepsy, though the experts are divided about its effects. Some believe George deliberately exaggerates the condition, others claim it has caused "severe brain dysfunction"
