Title: Why was Nevill Bamber in the kitchen?
Post by: G-Unit on March 08, 2020, 11:09:28 AM
There are two possibilities here. Either Nevill was forced at gunpoint to go down to the kitchen or he ran away from the person with the gun.

So if the person with the gun forced Nevill to go to the kitchen what was the purpose?

If Nevill fled to the kitchen of his own accord, again, what was the purpose?

A. He was hoping to distract the shooter/prevent them from shooting?

B. The kitchen afforded a possible escape route/access to something with which to counter the shooter?

I imagine to get out of the house and raise the alarm. All Bamber had to d was remove the key from the door. Interestingly, the upstairs door leading to a second staircase was locked - this meant Nevill only had one option for escape.

There is no way Bamber would attempt to force Nevill to go downstairs to the kitchen. The 4 upstairs shots were meant to kill.

There is no way Nevill would allow Sheila to march him down to the kitchen.

Nevill fled to the kitchen because a man with a gun was shooting at him.

Did he go down the main staircase, do you think?

The Main Hall staircase was the quickest and most used route.  As Caroline said, the way to the Office staircase S3 was blocked by a jammed door, and the Kitchen staircase S2 was filled with household junk...

Thank you Myster. So if he was running away he ignored the front door straight in front of him and headed for the kitchen?

He may not have, the key may have been removed. It was also bolted so not a lot of time o open it with Bamber close behind.

Post by: steve_trousers on March 08, 2020, 07:48:04 PM
It does make sense, that Jeremy would take some straightforward measure to ensure nobody comes bolting down the stairs and straight out of the front door in the event of a mishap.

So Nevill would have diverted to the kitchen for a number of reasons. Phone, weapon, back door.

I take there's no evidence to confirm that the key had been removed, or that he was being closely chased.

It maybe worth mentioning that, like many such farmhouses, the front door was mainly for decoration. What I mean is, other than for special occasions, it was never used. It's presence overlooked. In the many farmhouses I've visited, the front doors have bolts at the top and bottom, and frequently an antique, large, and somewhat strange main locking device. These doors are kept locked because they're so rarely used, and, in part, because they take too long to unlock.

I suppose the joke is on us for humouring these cranks. It says it all really, they donít deserve the oxygen we lend them by politely answering their questions and taking the time out to help them.

It goes to show how dead in the water the case for Jeremy is. That we are reduced to this.

Youíre wrong on both ó and thereís a third scenario youíve conveniently forgotten

Nevill ran downstairs after being shot upstairs to try and either raise the alarm and call 999 or/and pick up a poker or try and get another gun to prevent Jeremy from killing everyone.

Itís so obvious, yet youíre determined to try and come up with nonsensical scenarios because for some strange reason you donít want to believe the fact that Jeremy killed them all
Title: Re: Why was Nevill Bamber in the kitchen?
Post by: adam on March 09, 2020, 05:44:48 PM
I do not believe Nevill ran downstairs to dial 999. Bamber would be a few feet behind him.

Was it possible for Bamber to disable the front door. Take the key out etc?

Nevill would have then gone for the same door the raid team broke down.

Isn't that much the same as running away from the person with the gun?

No it isnít.

Youíre trying to imply Nevill cowardly tried to escape leaving Sheila free to kill June and the twins.

Nevill was a fit, healthy, very strong man of 6Ē4Ē, ex-RAF, and he could have easily overpowered & disarmed Sheila in seconds.

But the reality is, it was Jeremy who was upstairs with the gun, and it was Jeremy who shot Nevill four times upstairs. Jeremy had possibly already shot June dead, and the only chance Nevill had of survival and disarming Jeremy was by rushing downstairs in an attempt to arm himself too.

I doubt heíd have even thought of phoning 999 at that moment ó he had to take action immediately.

If you canít grasp that, then thatís another problem you have besides your deluded belief that Jeremy is innocent l

Whichever way you slice it Nevill left the person with the gun in the main bedroom with his wife. You don't know why and neither do I. Perhaps he made to disarm that person and got shot four times in return. Do you think he would have kept on going in the face of that regardless of who was holding the gun? It was the gun stopping him, not the size or sex of the person holding it, surely? He probably did go to find a weapon, but he didn't mamage it.

I've always thought his intention was to try and resume conversation with JB even if only an inaudible groan.  Blood stains were found on the worktop near the phone.

Jeremy had probably already shot June dead at that stage, or so he thought, and as the last four bullets didnít kill Nevill that rendered Jeremy unarmed.

So thatís THAT theory of yours blown out the water, because if Jeremy had more bullets in the gun heíd have fired even more into Nevill as he raced down the stairs...

You also seem to think Nevill couldnít have disarmed Sheila, but that too is ridiculous

Nevill was huge in comparison to Sheila, and the gun was so long ó which means heíd have easily been able to disarm her by simply heaving it away and out of her grasp

She was as weak as a kitten; found it hard to focus; was unable to even stir coffee without spilling it ó and more crucially, had absolutely no experience of using that rifle which Nevill had bought just months previously. In fact, Sheila had no experience of guns at all. So your argument is of no value whatsoever

I believe there was just one tiny spot of blood on the worktop, which is to be expected given the huge violent struggle that took place between Nevill and Jeremy

Nevill was literally covered in blood, which had squirted in in all different directions

I canít see why Nevill would want to resume a conversation with the son he supposedly called for help when:

1.  He couldnít speak due to his throat injuries

2.  He needed urgent medical help

3.  What would be the point of groaning down the phone to Jeremy, when he supposedly wanted him to rush over?

4.  As heíd supposedly already alerted Jeremy, heíd have thought he was already on his way, surely?

Although it's known how many times each person was shot it's not known in what order the shots were fired so it's not possible imo to say when the bullets ran out.

I have no theory about who did it so far; I'm exploring possibilities, that's all. I think it's possible that Nevill made one or even two phone calls before he was injured.

By the way for those mentioning door keys; according to CAL's book the front door was barred and the back door was secured with a key in a mortice lock. The door leading out from the scullery was also bolted (with three bolts).

It is possible to deduce a number of pointers:

- The magazine holds a max of 10 cartridges plus a bullet in the breach ie total of 11. 

- The pathologist was of the opinion the gsw's sustained by the twins were inflicted in quick succession.  The same applies to the gsw's inflicted to NB's head in the kitchen where any one immobilised him immediately.

- The 6 gsw's sustained by June allowed her to move around  the bed and back before she sustained the two gunshot wounds to the head where either immobilised her immediately.

The only really contentious aspect and/or aspect that can support the defence and undermine the prosecution is NB/perp location when NB sustained his upstairs gsw's.

Did JB enter the main bedroom and inflict the 6 gsw's to June and 4 to NB meaning NB was incapable of purposeful speech thereafter?  Or did NB tel JB from the kitchen with SC going upstairs opening fire on June, NB hearing the shots dropping the phone, running upstairs and sustaining the two facial gunshot wounds on the landing stairs whilst SC was stood just inside the entrance with the barrel extending outside onto the landing?

I believe its the latter supported by all the physical evidence at soc.  I am not interested in what others think NB would or wouldn't have done.  Or what others think SC was or wasn't  capable of.  I'm only interested in the physical evidence and my interpretation of it is that NB sustained the facials shots on the landing whilst SC was firing out from the bedroom.

The blood on SC's face has nothing to do with where NB sustained his facial wounds.

I believe after SC inflicted the second gsw her head fell back and was raised against the bedside cabinet.  Blood then pooled in the back of her throat/mouth and when officers pulled her down by her feet her head fell to the floor and dislodged the blood which leaked from orifices as depicted on soc images.  It also explains:

- Why those first at soc only saw one gsw (and possibly one casing)
- Why the large blood stain on the carpet doesn't follow the blood stain from her armpit

So how does that go with (your star witness) Woodcock describing the blood on her face when he entered the bedroom?

Again, your preferred witness 'Woodcock' reported TWO bullet holes under her chin and he was one of the first to enter the bedroom.

The bloodstain on the carpet is consistent with Bamber moving the body. However, blood tested on the carpet was found to be June's - can't see why they wouldn't have tested the large patch.

He states blood was leaking from both sides of her mouth down her cheeks. Which supports the idea blood had pooled in her throat/mouth and when SC was pulled by her feet her head was dislodged from the bedside cabinet falling flat to the floor and blood started to leak:

Two carpet samples were taken for testing from around the areas where SC's and June's feet were found. The large stain under the bible was not tested.

It doesn't matter how much you try and twist this Holly, Woodcock is describing what he saw when he initially saw
Sheila, not when he left. If anyone had pulled her feet at that juncture, it was Bamber but her head couldn't have been raised or the blood would have run down the sides of her chin and there would ne none in her eye socket.

Youíre simply assuming Nevill left the person with the gun in the bedroom with June, which means if he did, then he knew he had no chance of overpowering that person ó which completely rules out Sheila...

Thank you for highlighting that possibility.

The more you analyse it the more evident it is that it couldn't possibly have been Sheila with that gun.

It looks very much like after Jeremy shot June in the bed she managed to get up and make her way towards the door to try and help Nevill, who would have been struggling with Jeremy and it was at that point Jeremy shot her between her eyes killing her immediately as she approached the door. He then shot Nevill with the last four bullets he had in the gun as he approached the stairs.

Itís very simple to work out, actually...I donít know why you have difficulty with it.

Well, in that case then, as the front door was barred and the back door secured with a key in the mortice lock; plus the door leading out from the scullery being secured with three big bolts ó how did Nevill expect Jeremy to get not house and save them?

Or are you suggesting he shouted to Sheila upstairs saying: ďDon't shoot anyone else yet, darling, I need to go and unbolt the doors as Jeremy is coming over in about 20 minutes to disarm youĒ.

For goodness sake, this was a dire emergency!

Nevill would have no more phoned Jeremy than he would have poured a G&T, lit a cigarette, then calmly sat down to think about the situation while Sheila was going ďberserkĒ upstairs.

With regard to your claim SC was unable to stir coffee without spilling it I have pointed out previously the high standard of her manicured and polished nails.  I have not seen any evidence that others completed this task for her whether professionals or otherwise.  You said someone in Maida Vale did them and I've asked you who and to provide evidence/cite/source but to date nothing has been forthcoming.


Iíd forgotten all about that, Holly...

I have seen the evidence that Sheila used both a manicurist, including a hairdresser ó I shall find it

As you rightly say, the high standard of her perfectly manicured & polished nails would be difficult to achieve by anyone, even if they didnít suffer from shaky/trembling hands. Youíre a woman ó you must know that, surely?

Nail bars sprung up everywhere in the early 1980ís and almost all fashion conscious women who enjoyed having their hair done; nails done; wearing make-up etc took pride in having long, glamorous fingernails ó just as Sheila did. She was very conscious of her looks and liked to look nice, and except for her low times when she lost interest in her appearance, she always made sure her hair and nails looked lovely.

She was a beautiful girl, so why wouldnít she take pride in her looks?

The blood on SC's face has nothing to do with where NB sustained his facial wounds.

I believe after SC inflicted the second gsw her head fell back and was raised against the bedside cabinet.  Blood then pooled in the back of her throat/mouth and when officers pulled her down by her feet her head fell to the floor and dislodged the blood which leaked from orifices as depicted on soc images.  It also explains:

- Why those first at soc only saw one gsw (and possibly one casing)
- Why the large blood stain on the carpet doesn't follow the blood stain from her armpit


You seem to forget that Sheilaís arms were too short to reach the trigger ó have you forgotten that?

As for suggesting the police pulled her down ó why on Earth would they have done that? There was no point. Besides which, police keep victims in situ until photographs are taken. Your theory is completely skewed.

Not only is it skewed, but how could the pool of blood in her throat pour out underneath the Bible?

Youíre defying physics now.

Youíre simply assuming Nevill left the person with the gun in the bedroom with June, which means if he did, then he knew he had no chance of overpowering that person ó which completely rules out Sheila...

Thank you for highlighting that possibility.

The more you analyse it the more evident it is that it couldn't possibly have been Sheila with that gun.

It looks very much like after Jeremy shot June in the bed she managed to get up and make her way towards the door to try and help Nevill, who would have been struggling with Jeremy and it was at that point Jeremy shot her between her eyes killing her immediately as she approached the door. He then shot Nevill with the last four bullets he had in the gun as he approached the stairs.

Itís very simple to work out, actually...I donít know why you have difficulty with it.

Perhaps Nevill chased the shooter downstairs rather than the shooter chasing him. The shooter had a motive for heading downstairs; to reload.

What was NEvill doing while the shooter reloaded then? Waiting and watching as his daughter fumbled with the cartridges?

Perhaps! Perhaps!! Perhaps!!! No doubt there were some of those in the jury room -although nowhere near as many as you've put to us- before someone put forward the suggestion that all the "Perhaps" being suggested were simply excuses and delay tactics. 'Perhaps' it was that which eventually caused them to see reason and find him guilty.

The prosecution went to court with a story. It was plausible enough to convince a jury to convict. That doesn't mean the story was an accurate description of what happened.

Many convicted criminals are, IMO, unquestionably guilty , but I don't find a clear answer in this case. It may, of course, be because I don't know the case well enough, but I do think there is reasonable doubt.

I'm convinced that allowing what you call "reasonable doubt" to colour the jury's thinking, there will be many more guilty people walking free, to commit further heinous crimes. Are we to risk that for the few of those inside who are innocent? Nothing -NOTHING- in this world can ever be 100% fail safe.

Under our judicial system the prosecution is required to demonstrate guilt beyond reasonable doubt. That means juries are quite rightly allowed/expected to consider it. You obviously don't agree with that staple of legal thinking, Blackstone's ratio.

I have heard about this before, and I don't think it gives him an alibi.  If there really was someone alive with a gun inside WHF at the time when Jeremy was outside with the police, this indicates, to me, that he planned the murders but got someone else to carry them out, and it was that person who was inside the farmhouse.

I have seen photos of  police logs which indicate that someone was alive inside the house,and that the police were in contact with someone inside the house.  and have also heard that these may have be faked.  I cannot say whether they are faked or not.

It is possible that Sheila was still alive inside the house, but I doubt it somehow.

Police "speak" isn't like regular "speak". They may understand it fully and that's all that matters. The was their words get interpreted may not be what they meant. Without going back and looking, I think the report was worded that they were "in conversation with someone from the farm". They were. They were talking with Jeremy. He was "from the farm" but he was standing outside with them. They used a loud hailer to try to make contact with anyone inside the house, from where, according to them, there was "No response".

That doesn't make any sense - unless the 'someone' else had the power of invisibility, they would have been caught given the place was crawling with police.

By the way, they aren't faked and they don't indicate anyone was alive inside the house.

The log states "in conversation with 'a person' inside the 'farm'" "challenge to 'persons' inside the 'house' met with no response". There is a clear distinction between person and persons and farm and house. The person is Jeremy and the persons are those inside the house. Easily to manipulate because of the way it was written.

Rather like the two phone logs: easy to read them however one wants to, two calls or one. The "guilters" say one, the supporters say two. I say we can't be sure, as with the above.

Not sure they would have necessarily been caught. There were plenty of places to hide within that farmhouse, and the general consensus seems to be that the police were hopeless!  Not sure they were, but that's what people say.

How else can a jury convict, G-Unit?

Are you seriously suggesting the whole juridical system should be changed, just because you donít like to accept the fact Jeremy Bamber was found guilty?

Youíre also forgetting that Jeremy Bamber has already lost TWO appeals, plus his appeal at the European Court of Human Rights.  Isnít that enough to convince you that of his guilt? Isnít that enough to convince you  that he has absolutely no evidence at all to even suggest he may be innocent?

I was speaking of how the law operates. A jury can only judge on the evidence it's given.

And they did and you're still questioning the verdict

I'm questioning the evidence not the verdict. The fact that Nevill Bamber was unable to speak, for example, doesn't mean he didn't phone his son because he could have done that before he was injured. The fact that a wetsuit was found doesn't mean it was worn. The fact that people thought Nevill Bamber was careful with his guns doesn't mean that he complied with the law, he didn't. Even if Jeremy Bamber knew he could put 11 cartridges in the gun that doesn't mean he did.

Nor does it indicate that any such call happened. The wetsuit didn't convict him. in fact I'm not sure it was even mentioned at trial. Only one gun formed part of the evidence and that's the one Bamber left out (or so he said). The 11 cartridges remains a possibility because he knew it could be done. I

It's not up to anyone except a jury to pronounce guilt. That's how the law works.

You're right in tat it doesn't -(necessarily)- mean he didn't phone Jeremy. The question though, is WOULD he? Evidence exists to suggest he didn't think Jeremy could be trusted. It's very likely that there'd been some sort of contretemps between them that evening regarding a trailer Jeremy was to have bought back. It ended with Jeremy leaving and Nevill doing it himself. I feel it's highly UNlikely, that Nevill, knowing he couldn't be trusted to do his job, would have trusted him to even answer his phone, let alone get out of bed to do a rescue job.

Relationships can be toxic. They can also appear toxic to onlookers when they aren't. Some families have stand-up rows, some don't. That doesn't mean those who don't have rows don't have problems, it just means they deal with them differently. Only those involved in these relationships know the truth in my opinion.

Of course, I would need to know how many days/weeks prior to the massacre this change in Jeremy was noted. The fact that it WAS noted indicates that there had previously been problems. It also wouldn't have been prudent for him to alow outsiders to witness problems. It would have caused suspicion to fall on him. Whilst Colin may have believed that "father and son were close", one has to question how, given he was such an infrequent visitor, he came to such a conclusion. Maybe he was manipulated by Jeremy more than once?

Apples and pears holly,Stefan was done up like a kipper.

There was no DNA technology available in 1975, but police still had samples taken from Lesley's clothing examined and which showed the killer had a sperm count and could father a child. A police doctor who also examined Kiszko, saw that he was sexually immature and sent a sample for examination that showed Stefan had a zero sperm count.

The crucial evidence was never put before the court and when police reinvestigated the case in the 1990s, they found that Kiszko's samples had mysteriously vanished.

No, Colin ďthoughtĒ Jeremy and Nevill were close because Jeremy put on an act in front of him. Colin was kind-hearted, decent and caring, and because he had no evil in him it didnít occur to him that Jeremy was a manipulative psychopath.

 When Jeremy suddenly appeared to show an interest in the farm, Nevill was thrilled and told people Jeremy had ďturned a corner ď. But everyone said they were suspicious of Jeremyís motives, and they had good reason to be. Jeremy had secretly read the wills and knew he had to show interest in the farm in order to inherit it.

His sudden spurt of interest only lasted for so many months...until he shot them all dead...and then said he was going to sell the farm

And you might think the relatives who were wealthy in their own right might have considered making a charitable donation from the Bamber estate but apart from a lantern in the local church, nothing.  In fact I believe the Eatons and Pargeters went to battle in court over the estate.

58% or 50%?

PB = 42%, AE = 8%
June = 42%, JB = 8%

Either way very unpalatable for them.

Did you know AE moved into WHF some time after the murders and still lives there to this day?   8(8-))

The place should have been demolished imo.  How anyone could even consider living in such a place is beyond me whether relatives or not.

Why not give the money to charity?  They gained financially from the tragedy whoever the perp was. Ordinarily they would not have benefitted eg June left AE £100 in her will.

Some people think that White House Farm was part of the Bamber`s estate and that the cousins inherited it but that wasn't the case, the Eatons merely rent it from the actual owners. I don't think that fact was made very clear in the last TV documentary.

The way you bang on about the money, Holly (just as G-Unit does) anyone would thinks it was YOURS!

Itís got sweet Fanny Adams to do with you or anyone else.

As it happens, and as you take such a huge interest in money that isnít yours, the farmhouse could not be sold as it was held in a trust and tenanted out. I do believe that the house itself was originally built in the 1800s and owned by June Bamberís great-grandfather or G-G-grandfather. It was left in a trust so the family could live there, but they werenít able to sell it, obviously.

My understanding is that June owned many acres of land and the farmland, including 50% of the caravan park. She also owned other properties and was due to inherit 50% of her motherís house.

Nevill too owned many acres of the land, plus several properties and business ventures, including his motherís house in Guildford, of which I should imagine 50% would go to his late sisterís children.

So both June and Nevill were relatively wealthy in their own right, despite not owning the actual farmhouse. Juneís sister, Pamela was relatively wealthy too and was also in line to receive 50% of her motherís estate. 


So, given how much money was involved, itís a ridiculous suggestion to say that the rightful heirs should give all that money away to a charity ó that money that their family had grafted for over hundreds of years ó and go against the wishes of all their parents/grandparents. Why would anyone give away their rightful inheritance and leave themselves underprivileged with few assets and little money?!

Furthermore, if you were in their shoes and you knew the perp Jeremy Bamber had KILLED your close family to get his greedy grubby paws on all the money that your  parents, grandparents, great-grandparents had grafted so hard for, wouldnít you be determined to make sure he didnít get ONE penny? I certainly would! How could you sit back and watch an evil murderer not just take the lives of FIVE of your family members (two of whom were just six-years-old), but effectively steal the inheritance too?

Iíd move heaven and earth to make sure that evil psychopath didnít benefit for shooting dead his mother, his father, his sister, and his two little nephews. And everyone would do that too ó including you.

I've raised that exact point on several occasions. The same situation often changes exponentially if we can place ourselves in the shoes of those who felt that along with their family being torn from them, their life's work was about to be taken from them and enjoyed by the person responsible for it.

Nothing wrong? It was their absolute right to receive that inheritance ó it was theirs.

And the grandmother made certain it went to her daughter, Pamela, after she had the horror of knowing her other daughter, June had been shot dead ó along with all her family!

The convicted murderer, Jeremy Bamber, who was found guilty of slaying all his family to get his grubby paws on ALL the inheritance, rightly lost any right to the money as it was proven beyond reasonable doubt he killed them all for it.

Upon Jeremyís conviction the entire Bamber Estate was awarded to Pamela Boutflour. Anthony Pargeter and Jacqueline Wood brought a civil litigation for their share of the estate, namely Nevillís assets, against Peter and Ann Eaton, Solicitor Basil Cock, Robert and Pamela Boutflour and David Boutflour in the High Court Chancery Division in 1991.[3] Pargeter and Wood settled out of court after it was agreed they would receive Nevill Bamberís estate, while Robert and Pamela Boutflour, Peter and Ann Eaton and David and Karen Boutflour would in turn retain June Bamberís estate.[4]

It seems the more you have the more you want. Interestingly Basil Cock suggested that the presumption when the order of death can't be determined is that the younger survives the elder. That seems to have been applied to Nevill and June, but what about Sheila and the twins? Sheila inherited from June, and I would have thought that would have gone to the twins had they survived. It seems Colin Caffell refrained, as their next of kin, from getting involved.

I imagine the change from murder/suicide to murder may, re inheritance, have thrown a spanner in the works/made it easier to apply? Not sure how easy it would have been for Colin to make a claim -nothing to stop him trying if he'd been of a mind to, though- it would be interesting to hear what others have to say.

Once JB was convicted he forfeited his right to inherit.  Effectively June and NB died intestate as those named in their wills as main benefactors were either deceased or had to forfeit.  Therefore the laws of intestacy kick in based on next of kin.  But given the age, wealth and tax position of some its clear they exercised their right to forego and pass to others via a deed of variation.  Eg June's next of kin was her mother but what would be the point in an elderly woman bed ridden already wealthy in her own right and possibly liable to inheritance tax taking on more?  It would then fall to PB but I understand she said she didn't want to gain financially from the murders so it seems a deed of variation was effected to override the normal course of events eg June's mother to June's niece and nephew.

With regard to NB his next of kin was his niece and nephew: Jackie Wood and Anthony Pargeter.

Itís quite simple, actually

After Jeremy Bamber killed June and all the family, Juneís motherís estate went to her next of kin (who sheíd already named in her will) which was her other daughter, Pamela (Juneís sister) and her other grandchildren, Ann and Peter.  Sheila was dead, as were her great grandchildren the twins, and her grandson, Jeremy being the murderer had lost all legal right to any of the estate.

Nevillís estate was the same: his wife, daughter and grandchildren had been murdered, and his son, being the murderer, automatically lost all right to any monies from Nevillís estate.

Yes that is an interesting Point G. Colin would have been entitled to claim on behalf of his children's' inheritance- Perhaps he didn't want involved with family politics after losing his children money wouldn't have been foremost on his mind.

Unlike Jeremy who immediately went to the accountant, lawyer and the bank to transfer everything into his name, and called Sothebyís to come and value items in WHF, plus placed adverts in the local paper to flog June and Nevillís cars ó and all before the funerals!

And thatís without trying to sell the nude photos of Sheila to The Sun, clearing her flat out, searching both properties for cash, and getting his friend (possibly P/T boyfriend) Brett to flog his parentís goods on his behalf.

I understood that when someone dies, their bank accounts are frozen until probate is obtained.

No one freezes the antiques scattered around the house, someone needs to do an inventory of those. The family started to do that, list the items for the BC - that's why Jeremy didn't want them there.

Thatís true, but in certain cases banks will relax the rules.  For example, before Jeremy was discovered to be the murderer heíd have been the executor and he could have (probably did) applied for a grant of representation prior to probate. Thatís why he rushed off to a solicitor for advice.

Donít forget, probate can take months, sometimes longer, and the executor needs to run the finances of the deceased. Indeed, Jeremy DID withdraw money from Nevillís account, but that could have been because both Nevill and Jeremy co-owned one of  Nevillís businesses. He also needed money for the funerals, flowers, his new suit which cost £180 ó that would be about £600 now?

And he also needed to access Nevillís business account as he had to pay staff their wages: Nevillís secretary made up the wages the next week, and Jeremy stole £100 cash out of Lenís wage packet. Len had to tell Barbara he was £100 short and she knew Jeremy must have stolen it as heíd asked for the wage packets and said heíd drop them off to staff. Even THEN he was scheming and stealing ó and you donít become a thief overnight. I bet he was always stealing cash out of Juneís purse and Nevillís wallet...

To think he even thought of stealing some of Lenís wages just days after killing everyone demonstrates what a twisted, sick, evil thing he is.

I can hear the ďJust BecauseĒ Posse firing up their cylinders:

ďJust because he threw stones at water fowl and beat animals doesnít mean heís a murdererĒ
ďJust because he was a thief who though nothing of stealing from his nearest and dearest doesnít mean heís a murdererĒ
ďJust because he tried to sell topless photos of his dead sister to the press in the wake of her death doesnít mean heís a murdererĒ
etc etc etc

His vile attempt at trying to humiliate his own sister after HEíD killed her proves what a vile scumbag he is.

He hasnít been able to worm himself out of that one, though he did try and make out it was Colin who tried to sell them! He soon kept his trap shut when THAT lie was ridiculed.

Itís also telling that for someone whoís SO money orientated, greedy, grasping and litigious never tried to sue The Sun for publishing, what he claimed, was a lie. He tries to sue everyone, from the family to the police, prison...anyone he can. Yet not only did he not attempt to sue The Sun, but he scurried off and they never heard a peep from him again.

Heís absolutely putrid.

Basil Cock was the executor.

He did steal some of Len's wages.
