Title: Why didn't Jeremy Bamber dial 999?
Post by: tbl on September 08, 2016, 12:05:55 PM
Does anyone have any idea why JB called his local police station rather than 999? It seems a bizarre thing to do. If he had received a call from Neville and thought there was a genuine emergency he would have called 999. If he was half asleep/was wondering if it was a dream/was confused as to what had been said he would have driven to the farm to see what was happening. I can't understand why he would have called the local station. Any thoughts?

Various excuses have been opined in relation to the question you ask.  At the end of the day, only Jeremy could supply an answer to this question but I don't think he was ever asked nor has he ever voluntered a reason as far as I recall.

Why would JB think NB's call amounted to a "genuine emergency" to the point he felt the need to call 999?

From the 2002 hearing:

29.  When asked why he had not dialled 999, the appellant said he did not think it would make any difference to the time it would have taken for the police to arrive.

He wanted the police to arrive though, as you've posted in his quote from the 2002 hearing.

It may not have taken then longer to arrive. But it certainly took him longer looking through the phone book for the local number than it would to have dialled 999.

According to JB he received a call from NB: "Sheilas gone crazy, shes got the gun".  End of communication.  JB claims he attempted to call back and was unable to communicate further with NB.  Assuming this is true what course of action would you expect JB to take and why?

You missed out the preceding bit - "Please come over...".  In other words - "Get your a$$ over here, asap!"

If NB called JB I don't believe he used the words "Please come over" for the following reasons which were discussed extensively in a previous thread:

http://miscarriageofjustice.co/index.php?topic=5723.msg202984#msg202984

I take no notice of anything JB has said or done in recent years for the following reasons:

-  Whether he realises it or not and whether others realise it or not I believe his long incarceration must to some extent have taken its toll on his mental state. 

-   Many of those that have been close to him over the years have filled his head with complete rubbish eg Mike, GDS, CT and emotionally unstable women.  Worse still the CT cause him enormous damage and embarrassment.  They seem to take the view any publicity is good publicity.  Hence the bake off, graveside reading and now claims of a suicide letter.   

-  Prisoners are vulnerable in the sense that they only have very limited resources and are largely cut off from the outside world. 

-  Through my limited letter contact with him I would describe his understanding of his case as average to poor.  He doesn't seem that switched on eg his explanation about how a silencer works, which was at one time on the OS, was wrong. There was no advantage to him in his explanation being wrong.  In fact had it been correct it would have provided some good plus points.

-  As far as I'm aware he hasn't had any one reliable and sensible source of support during his long incarceration.  Eg Stefan Kiszko had his mother, Sally Clark had her father and husband, David Bain had Joe Karam for most of the time.

Good points Holly, add to that being ripped off by unscrupulous "experts" such as this graphologist that is supposed to be confirming if this "suicide note" is in Sheila's handwriting, and charging £1500+ for the privilege! Desperate prisoners are vulnerable in this respect and sitting ducks for charlatans.

Thanx Holly, fair enough response I suppose had there been an actual telephone call from Nevill.

Had this actually taken place I would have expected Jeremy to get over there pronto and not mess about with supposed calls to the police which would have taken ages.  All he said he knew was what you quoted above, "Sheilas gone crazy, she's got the gun", there was no mention of it being discharged inappropriately. What we had in essence was a domestic within a family albeit with the potential to go badly awry.   It was not then a police matter and Nevill would not have wanted a police presence so why involve them?  It just doesn't add up!

Had Nevill said Sheila's got the gun and she has shot me then that would have been an entirely different matter and one which would require police and ambulance attendance.

My natural reaction I think would have been to go straight over, and if necessary, call the police from the farmhouse if the situation warranted it. Mind you, who among us could accurately predict what we would do, if those circumstances arose!

The key issue was at what stage was the disturbance. Given that no shots had been fired the common sense thing was for Jeremy to go over to the farmhouse and attempt to calm things down.  Jeremy would know that his father was well able for Sheila and that she in turn respected him greatly thus involving police was not logical.  In fact Nevill would have been furious had armed cops arrived on his doorstep if all Sheila had done was wave the empty rifle about.

And yet at the cottage only a few hours later, Jeremy was adamant that his dad had already been wounded when he phoned. This according to CC...

The facial wounds would have prevented him "blurting out" anything at all quite clearly.

yes an interesting point was made by adam.that both jb and neville picked the same police station to call which was the 5th furthest away from them.so there were 4 other stations closer to them but they both ignored this and chose the 5 furthest &%+((£

I believe CC is the only person ever to say JB said he thought NB sounded injured. 

We've previously discussed:

http://miscarriageofjustice.co/index.php?topic=6525.msg261188#msg261188

Noone else mentions this eg PC West, PS Bewes, PC Myalls, PC Saxby, any member of the raid team or indeed JB in his WS's or interviews. 

AE was specifically asked if she heard JB say NB sounded injured and she said no:

But "Sheilas gone crazy, she's got the gun" doesn't tell anyone much.  If I received such a call I think I would probably do what JB claims he did which was attempt to call NB back and ask what he wanted me to do eg take something over, go over, call someone etc.

If NB used the words 'Please come over' then IMO that is different as there's a clear instruction as to what NB wanted JB to do.

I agree, so would I BUT, when I couldn't get through, I'd have either called 999 or gone over there - or both.

But then I think it comes down to making a judgement call/decision which will vary from person to person. 

I would probably have driven over kept a safe distance and then made a decision to approach WHF or use the tel box at the bottom of the lane, or wherever it was that JB called JM from, to call the police.  The fact JB didn't do this doesn't make me make me suspicious at all.

JB was no doubt mindful of:

- NB and June wanting to keep SC's mental illness private
- NB not wanting to get the authorities involved
- NB's low regard for the local police
- NB being a magistrate and not wanting it getting round his mentally ill daughter was "going crazy" and had access to a gun
- Firearms and ammo may not have been kept as they should have been
- SC had previous 'episodes' which were non-violent
- Dr Ferguson told CC SC was not a risk to herself and others which was probably also relayed to the Bambers and JB in turn

Had JB have called 999 I think the prosecution and others would simply say he wanted the police to find the victims as quickly as possible.

Except that he did decide to call the police and quickly told them Sheila wasn't just suffering mental health issues, but that 'she was a nutter'. He told them about the firearms and about the gun that he'd left out. There doesn't seem any attempt to try and 'keep her illness quite' - quite the opposite.

Yes once he made the decision to call the police he had to relay the message he claims he received from NB: "Sheilas gone crazy, shes got the gun".  This would naturally result in a dialogue and the police asking questions about SC and the availability of firearms.

Yes I think he was trying to get the balance right believing the situation was potentially serious enough to warrant police involvement but trying to avoid sirens blaring and lights flashing on the basis it might be a manageable domestic.

That wouldn't happen at that time of the morning or in a seige situation. Lights and sirens are to warn other traffic to move out of the way.

According to AE, when Jeremy was asked why he didn't go to WHF, he said "I didn't want to be shot too". However, at the point of making that decision, he 'supposedly' didn't know anyone had been shot.

Oh well I wouldn't have known that would JB?  I would think 999 was all guns blazing and a call to the local cops would be nothing more than a drive-by akin to an officer from Heartbeat on his bike.  The following from Surrey police states its down to the discretion of the driver whether they dispaly emergency signals or not.

I very much doubt NB called EP. 

NB was a magistrate and would have much greater knowledge of police operations in Essex than Joe Average.  He may well have mentioned things in passing to JB therefore JB may well have been aware that local stations were closed to the public at circa 3am.

During 2013 I visited the area.  On the Fri night we arrived in Maldon about 9pm and by accident happened to park outside the police station.  It was obvious then the place was closed to the public.  It's situated bang in the town centre on a little island so to speak with a busy pub opposite which JB may well have frequented.

It doesn't need to be all guns blazing at those hours, who would they be waring? It certainly wouldn't be a good idea to spook someone in a seige situation. People have asked why the police didn't go straight in, the answer is because that's not policy in those situations.

I just think 999 conjures up an emergency and calling the local station seems more low key but that's just my perception. 

The other day I was on a fairly busy road en route to get my car washed when I swerved to miss a spade bang in the middle of the single carriage way I was travelling on.  I thought when I get to car wash I will phone police.  I was thinking I would have to find number first then toyed with the idea of calling 999 and then back to looking up local station.  Anyway car wash was too busy so headed back towards gym which took me along the same road.  Spade gone so I didn't have to bother about calling anyone.  That's a true story.

AE said JB didn't go to WHF because he might be shot at too!  Think he must be guilty.

I dont think there's any evidence JB or NB phoned Witham? 

JB phoned Chelmsford and they put a call out to a patrol car in the area. 

Chelmsford were able to make contact with Witham via a radio link not accessible to public.

It is more low key and can understand your reluctance to call in your spade scenario - however, crazy with a gun isn't a spade scenarios.

He is guilty.

Both scenarios had the potential to cause injury and fatalities ie "Sheilas gone crazy shes got the gun" and the spade in the middle of the road.

I think the case is far more complex than arriving at conclusions based on the tel calls unless I've missed something.

Does anyone have any idea why JB called his local police station rather than 999? It seems a bizarre thing to do. If he had received a call from Neville and thought there was a genuine emergency he would have called 999. If he was half asleep/was wondering if it was a dream/was confused as to what had been said he would have driven to the farm to see what was happening. I can't understand why he would have called the local station. Any thoughts?

17

Although 999 was first introduced in 1937, It was only in operation with a 10 mile radius from central London. Then it was adopted in other major cities. It was not until 1976 it became nationwide including rural areas. So its very possible that June and Neville were accustom to the idea of calling the local police like you call anyone else. and didn't like things changing, and their children followed their advice on it.

Why Bamber would dial 999

He knew the number.

He had the phone in his hand.

He instantly tried to call Neville back but didn't get through. So believed it was something serious.

He didn't know the numbers of any individual police station.

He knew a 999 call is answered straight away.

He knew a 999 call is manned 24/7 and always answered.

He knew a 999 call would deal with his query correctly.

He didn't know which individual police stations would be open.

He did not know which individual police stations would answer straight away.

He decided the situation was serious enough to contact the police. So dialling 999 is the obvious thing to do.

Bamber himself said ringing an individual police station 'would make no difference' to how quickly the police arrived. So there is no advantage in dialling an individual police station. Only a big disadvantage,  in having to waste a lot of time looking up a number in the Yellow pages. Twice.

A 999 call would direct the call to the correct station straight away.

He said he phoned Witham police station but got no answer. So would then dial 999, rather than waste more time looking for another number that may not answer.

Dialling 999 would be an instant reaction after getting Neville's call.

He wanted things resolved quickly as he tried to call back Neville after the phone went dead. Being unsuccessful doing this, and with the phone in his hand, he will then do the next best thing. Which was to dial 999.

He did not know if an individual police station would have the correct staff available to assist him.

He was half asleep, so would not be analysing things too much. The action which required the least effort and thinking about was ringing the 999.

He wouldn't know if the Yellow pages would have correct numbers.

Everyone is taught from a young age to dial 999. In an emergency.

No one is taught from a young age to look for police stations numbers in an emergency.

Bamber said he spoke to Julie after the police. So cannot claim Julie advised him to phone a police station directly.

Neville had rang him and said 'come quickly'. If Bamber was not going to go there straight away, he would want to meet the police quickly.

There were no examples of famous real life or fictional crimes  which had someone dialling an individual police station.

A combination of some or all of the above.

Bamber then testified he didn't phone Witham.

Judges Summing Up

Did the jury believe Julie or Jeremy ?

Did Jeremy mention Matthew Mcdonald as a cover up ?

Both Jeremy & Julie had committed recent crimes. That does not mean either lied in court in this trial. Julie had paid back the money she stole.

Jeremy trusted Julie to help him commit a crime at the caravan site. Did he trust her enough to confide in the murders ?

The jury should ignore the media.

Every witness in the trial is equal.

Did the mysterious phone call from Neville happen ?

Could Mugford have lied under oath for nearly two days ?

Did Mugford's testimony have a ring of truth ?

The judge said Bamber should know whether he phoned Witham police station or not.

The prosecution claim to have an overwhelming case even without the silencer evidence. The judge told the jury to disregard this comment & review all evidence.

Red paint on silencer shows it was on during kitchen fight. Jeremy said the gun was left that night without a silencer on. Why would Sheila put a silencer on the gun & did she know how to do this ? 

Why would Sheila take the silencer off the gun & put it away, rather than throw it on the floor ?

There was overwhelming evidence it was Sheila's blood on the silencer.

Police mistakes not relevant. Part of the reason for the mistakes early on was because they had been lead in that direction.

Jeremy had a financial motive to commit the crime.

Jeremy said he had used the found hacksaw to gain access to WHF after the murders to get documentation.  Was this correct or had he gained entry on the murder night ?

The bicycle had dried mud on the wheels according to Robert Boutflour.

Jeremy said his relationship with Julie was coming to a close in August. Why was the bike brought to the cottage just before the murders ?

Both the defence & prosecution agree the silencer was fitted for most of the time the crime was taking place.

Mugford was questioned at lenght & in detail. She stuck to her story under cross examination. The defence complained about her crying. But that could be a sign of weakness the defence could have exploited. Were the defence really complaining because she did not change her story ?

If Mugford was called at 3:12 by Jeremy & the police st 3:26 it badly undermines Jeremys version of events. 

If Neville called at 3.26, he had no face wounds. The police arrived at WHF at 3.48 & never heard any shots. Sheila must have fought Neville, perhaps shot other people, washed, unscrewed & put the silencer away & then shot herself. In 22 minutes.

Colin Caffell testified that Jeremy said Neville sounded wounded on the phone. However in court Jeremy said he thought it might have just sounded terrified. The judge said Jeremy should remember.

Dr Ferguson had testified that Sheila had never shown physical violence to other people. Others testified she was attached to her father & loving towards her sons.

Dr Bradley testified that people with no history of violence can become violent.

The judge mentioned the supper when fostering was mentioned. Jeremy said Sheila was non responsive. Therefore this cannot be used as a reason why Sheila could have committed the crimes.

The judge said it was 'very very' unlikely Sheila could overcome Neville in a fight & not have any marks. Jeremy was not examined for a long time & would have had time to clean up on the night.

The judge asked could Sheila load a gun ?

The judge said there is no doubt the silencer was on the rifle in the kitchen fight. It is not credible that Sheila would then put it back in the gun cupboard.

The judge said the blood found in the silencer was specific to Sheila. There was a remote possibility of it being a mixture of Neville & Junes.

The crime was committed by Sheila or Jeremy. There was no possible third party.

I chose to read an unbiased book when first looking at the case.

Not sure why Bamber appealed on the basis of the judges summing up.

A judge can only sum up on the evidence presented at trial by the defence and prosection.  Which may favour the defence or prosecution.

All the judges points are correct, and unbiased. Some points favour Bamber such as Dr Bradley's statement that people with no violent history can become violent.

I suppose with the case fresh in everyone's mind there was nothing to lose in making a quickie appeal. And as the relatives have said, he has 'nothing better to do'.

But a bit of a waste of the courts time and the tax payers money.

I would like to see the full summing up.  The part we have here is certainly biased against JB.  The judge even refers to the lost hair.  Yes the lost hair that the relatives didn't identify but the police did.  Was this before or after DS Jones placed it in the inner of an empty kitchen roll?  In any event it was lost before it reached the lab for forensic analysis.  The judge had no right whatsoever to make reference to this let alone imply it attached to the silencer as a result of the "violent struggle" in the kitchen.

It is saying the hair could well be Neville's from blows to the head. The 2002 appeal report supports this saying Neville received lacerations to the head. Neville had a lot of available hair to transfer to the silencer.

It also says blood could have transferred to the silencer from these blows.

Both support the silencer being on the weapon during the massacre.

The hair was supposedly about 1/4 of an inch in length and grey in colour.  The relatives didn't observe it when they claim they examined it around the table at Oak Farm.  The silencer was then transferred to AE's blanket box for safe keeping until DS Jones collected it and put it in the inner of a kitchen roll with tape at both ends.  He then sat drinking whisky with PE until late into the evening.  Exactly where in his car he placed the kitchen roll and silencer I've no idea but the conditions don't sound exactly forensic!

I doubt the hair ever existed it was just thrown in to embellish the whole blood/silencer 'evidence'.

It was probably stuck down to the metal with undiluted washing-up liquid that JB used to wipe blood off the moderator, so therefore unnoticeable at first.  If you had your way, Stan Jones and Peter Eaton were as drunk as skunks when they parted!

I wonder if anyone has any idea of what a colourless -no such colour as 'grey'- hair measuring approximately 1/4 inch looks like. I've seen longer eyebrows and lashes. Being colourless, I'm astounded that it was seen at all..........and they're saying it was transported in an empty kitchen roll holder?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it ever existed, it's probably still there.

Forensic examination of the silencer didn't reveal any washing-up liquid.  This is your theory based on DB's appearance on one of the docu/dramas (Killing mum and dad I think?) stating the silencer felt sticky to the touch.  The relatives didn't identify the hair when they examined it.  It was something the police identified.

I don't care whether DS Jones had one pub measure or the whole bottle imo it doesn't sound very professional.  It's not just the drinking aspect but allowing the boundaries to blur between witness and police officer.  This wasn't a one off either.  He had a drink at JB's on 7th Aug and again with DI Miller on 14th Aug when they called at the Eatons to discuss the paint and scratches.  Today this would be enough to have the case thrown out and the pair would face disciplinary action.

DB being so definite the silencer was sticky with something doesn't imo make it so.

Going by the vid it seems to me DB felt he needed a reason to take a closer look at the silencer to identify what he describes as a small spot of blood hence the stickiness. 

DB describes JB as a very good actor.  I would be interested to hear what an expert in body language makes of DB's body language, hand gestures, eye movement, facial expressions and tone of voice when he describes the stickiness.

As previously pointed out AE was very big on detail.  She doesn't make any reference to it being sticky.  Neither does DI Miller in CTSB. 

There's no record of the lab identifying any sticky residue let alone removing any.  GH's examination record notes traces of blood and paint only. 

Perhaps DS Jones used the silencer to mix some water into his whisky  8(0(*

There's no record of the lab identifying any sticky residue let alone removing any.  GH's examination record notes traces of blood and paint only. 

Perhaps DS Jones used the silencer to mix some water into his whisky  8(0(*

AE didn't handle it.
The stickyness might have dried up by the time it was examined.  8((()*/

Yes but she was present when DB found it at WHF and subsequently examined it at Oak Farm so I'm surprised she didn't mention this sticky residue her brother claims he felt.

I recently posted the silencer went in a blanket box at Oak Farm but on rereading it was the firearms that went into the blanket box and the silencer went into her wardrobe. Who placed the silencer into her wardrobe?

DB claims he found the silencer on 10th Aug.  This was some 2.5 days after the prosecution claim JB removed it having murdered his family.  If it was sticky, as claimed by DB, why, when, how did it suddenly become non-sticky?

I chose to read an unbiased book when first looking at the case.

Not sure why Bamber appealed on the basis of the judges summing up.

A judge can only sum up on the evidence presented at trial by the defence and prosection.  Which may favour the defence or prosecution.

All the judges points are correct, and unbiased. Some points favour Bamber such as Dr Bradley's statement that people with no violent history can become violent.

I suppose with the case fresh in everyone's mind there was nothing to lose in making a quickie appeal. And as the relatives have said, he has 'nothing better to do'.

But a bit of a waste of the courts time and the tax payers money.

Blood relations was written in 1994. Its maybe reliable in snippets but overall it's outdated, much has happened since then.

I've been reading a bit in the papers about the case of Helen Nicoll. She suffered mental health problems.  Family relationships seem strained between her and her husband and children.  Her husband found her hanged and I believe initially was suspected of murdering her.  He was asked why he didn't dial 999 when finding his wife.  He cancelled a game of golf and phoned family.  He said it was obvious she was dead and would have been disrespectful to attempt to revive her. 

It seems HN's siblings believe there's something amiss. 

Deja vu maybe.

If JB's conviction is overturned should the trial judge, Sir Maurice Drake, have his knighthood removed posthumously? It would amount to the 2nd high profile MoJ he presided over.

According to JB he received a call from NB: "Sheilas gone crazy, shes got the gun".  End of communication.  JB claims he attempted to call back and was unable to communicate further with NB.  Assuming this is true what course of action would you expect JB to take and why?

Better still,  why would someone who is witnessing this as it unfolds call a unarmed relative ( what could this person do exactly), why does this person not call 999 immedietly then call the relative? Am I missing something?

1) Jeremy has as much a chance of having his conviction overturned as Hillary does of taking over for Trump it he died in office.  (In case you don't know the order of replacement is vice president, Speaker of the House and then all the various cabinet secretaries starting with the Secretary of State, it would be impossible for Hillary to replace him).

2) Though there is no chance in hell of finding any evidence that could free Jeremy but what about other cases where some new scientific evidence was found that did prove innocence. Did that new evidence mar the judges of such trials?  No it has no impact on the judges at all.  The judges were not tasked with investigating the case and finding scientific evidence.  The parties do such the judge simply presides over the case.  A judge is marred when a judge gets the law wrong. When a judge screws up the law and an appeal court reverses on the basis the judge was wrong then you have the judge being marred.  The Appeal Courts have already validated his rulings from the legal perspective.

Who supposedly used the phone to call Jeremy?  Clearly she means Nevill. She is asking why Nevill would call Jeremy instead of taking action himself.

It makes far more sense to grab a shotgun or knife than o call Jeremy and hope that for the 15 minutes it takes for him to arrive that Sheila won't do anything.  oreover, why would Jeremy have better luck unarming her than Nevill would?


If Jeremy had some special relationship with her where he was calming to her that would be one thing but the reverse is true.  The calming one was Nevill and Jeremy caused angst.  Indeed the main episode Jeremy supporters love to use of Sheila not knowing who anyone was for hours and numerous people being unable to calm her down resulted in her instantly recognizing Nevill and becoming calm in his presence.  Her doctor said he had a calming presence even and was her rock.  So he would have been the one most likely to be able to calm her down and he was already there.  He would have no reason to call Jeremy.  This is one of several problems with the call claim.

1) How would he get away from Sheila to use the phone
2) Why would he leave his wife and the kids in bed to face Sheila alone
3) Time was of the essence so why would he call someone instead of trying to disarm her himself or to arm himself and then confront her
4) Why would he call Jeremy
5) The evidence establishes the event started with the killer shooting the parents in bed which conflicts with the claim of the phone call to him before any shooting took place.


All of these things are problematic and that is without even considering the evidence that Sheila didn't do it.

I disagree entirely.  It is all subjective.  We didn't know the family or understand the dynamics within. 

For all we know NB and SC may have been in the lounge or dining room for whatever reasons.  SC may have been in possession of the loaded rifle (regardless of whether it was where JB said he left it or someone had put away and she recovered it) and may have reverted to many themes that seem to occur when she was unwell.  I am thinking about her behaviour as described by AE, Colin's mother and her boyfriend Freddie.  These themes seemed to be persecutory eg the CIA following her and believing God didn't love her based on what June had said.  This might have been NB's definition of "SC's going crazy, she's got the gun".  On this basis I think it is entirely feasible that NB may have called JB.  NB may just have wanted another adult around in case anything went wrong if he tried to take possession of the gun.  NB may have thought getting June involved may have made SC worse.  Dr Fergsuon said SC thought June was a threat to her.  He also confirmed that SC had never referred to JB. 

Imo all the physical evidence at the soc points to SC being the perp.

None of the physical evidence points to Sheila.  No victim blood on her, no GSR on her, no injuries other than her own gunshot wounds, evidence that she was shot with the moderator then it was removed and put away and evidence after she was dead the Bible was place din a pool of her blood.  This is the only physical evidence and it all clears her as opposed to implicating her. 

It is common sense that Nevill would disarm her himself if she did anything not call Jeremy to ask him to come do it.

It is common sense that if he did want extra help he would wake up June not call Jeremy and pray Jeremy could arrive in time.

No matter how much you try to justify Nevill calling Jeremy you can't come up with anything that actually makes any sense.  That is before we even take into account Julie's testimony and the evidence proving the event started with the parents being shot in bed which further undermines the notion Nevill called Jeremy before Sheila started shooting.

You decided you want to believe Sheila did it and try justifying your position however you can as opposed to starting out from a neutral position and following the evidence where it leads.

Much like Jeremy Bamber describes NB's "alleged" telephone call and all the other BS he's alleged over the years  *&^^&

It turns out the emergency service worker initially thought the telephone call from HVB was a prank, hence why she appears to be dithering around. Plus HVB didn't telephone the emergency services until a few hours after he'd murdered - Not dissimilar to Bamber I imagine.

Never mind about reading other peoples posts.

Why do you believe Bamber rang the police.  Instead of hopeing someone else finds them before he starts work ?

Because he wanted to add credence to the story , imo it was a risky move , IF he did it ,  I don't really understand why he didn't phone 999 , that would have added authenticity to his story, he was back home , no reason why the police couldn't get there as quick as possible.

But if he had left it so that others found them why would he need an alibi? it would look like a murder suicide

They may have questioned things more and who would have discovered it? It would be Jeremy as he would be first on the scene. If he could convince them of the call - he had it made.

Bamber asked the police to pick him up. A vehicle dispatched from Chelmsford is more likely to do this on the long journey to WHF.

As said, he would be first on the scene in the morning & would have discovered the bodies. Better to spend several hours outside WHF with the police insinuating Sheila & helping create a siege situation. Then when the police enter, Sheila is lying down with a rifle on her.

His tactic worked for a short period.

Sion Jenkins and David Bain found family members who they were subsequently found guilty of murdering but have since had their convictions quashed. 

If JB was responsible he would have done better to find his victims the following morning and then when interviewed by police lay it on thick about arguments the previous night.  Phone JM on eve 6th Aug and tell her about the mother of all arguments instead of 'it's tonight or never'.

I think it may have been about a need to control, and he was clearly in charge from the moment he first spoke to police. The call to Julie was probably about being eager to let her know he'd done/was about to do what he'd planned,

I disagree that Bamber was better off leaving the bodies & finding them the following morning. Either way, he didn't.

Bamber can't remember what he said to Julie in that 17 minute conversation. Although he called her.

He still would not have an alibi if he found them himself in the morning. All he could say was I was alone asleep all night.

It would still be just two suspects as Bamber had arranged the crime scene in a way which ruled out a burgler.

If he had waited until the morning, he couldn't have phoned Julie at 3am. That would blow apart his 'I was alone sleeping all night' alibi.

He says he phoned Julie after Nevill phoned him. Nevill's call would not have happened if he had waited until the morning.

Bamber was so hyped up straight after the massacre, I'm not sure he could have refrained from ringing Julie upon his return.

Julie wasn't an alibi. It added no weight to his phone call to the police alibi.

Both calls he can say he made from his cottage. Which was correct.

Not forgetting that he'd have been hyper. He may have been bursting with a sense of accomplishment and longing to share it. Actually, Julie's reaction could well go down in history as being one of the greatest ego deflaters of all time. "WOW", "OMG", even stunned silence, would all have validated his achievement. Her disinterested "Go back to bed" was likely to have left him feeling very frustrated.

The permutations of what a 'guilty' JB could have done are numerous.

He could have phoned Len Foakes claiming he received the call from NB and ask him to take a look.

He could have driven to WHF in his car and finding lights on, dogs barking and no NB knock up the Foakes on the basis something was amiss and ask to use their phone to call EP (having left his wallet at home so unable to use the call box down the lane  8(0(*)

Alternatively he could have turned up at WHF in the morning as usual knowing the Foakes would be around and the farmhouse would be locked/bolted from within.  He then looks through kitchen window and sees NB/a body.

He said when he left everyone seemed happy.  Why not say the atmosphere was very tense and he was glad to get away!? EG  "Mum and Dad were telling Sheila she would never have full-time care of the twins again that they would remain with Colin and the only way round it was for Sheila and the twins to move back to Essex where we could all help".  Sheila started shaking and shouting and said she would rather die than live round here".  Mum said she could not understand the appeal of London and Sheila said she didn't want to end up boring like mum.  Mum started crying and unusually for dad he was getting quite short with Sheila.  But I never thought it would end like this..."

Re those dogs which everyone believes would have barked. Some people I know live behind electronic gates. Last week, whilst the were asleep, a vast bronze horse was stolen from their front garden. There were 5 outside dogs and 3 house dogs. None of them barked..................but the robbery was caught on CCTV.

Anyway, back to what Jeremy COULD have done. Given what he said were his father's "panicked" words, off loading to anyone, other than police, probably wouldn't have been appropriate. Doing what he did, when he did it, not only gave him an alibi, it also put him in the 'higher chair'.

He couldn't afford to over dramatize it. Remember his laissez faire attitude to calling 999. If he'd painted too black a picture of the scene he'd left, questions may have been asked about his delay in calling them.

But the dogs were barking when JB/EP turned up. 

JB would know whether or not the dogs barked when visitors arrived.  JB said to EP I can't understand dad not coming out given the dogs are barking. 

But what happened didn't give him an alibi.  Had it done he would not have spent the last 32/33 years in prison.

He knew the farmhouse was locked/bolted from within whether innocent or guilty

We know, NOW, that it didn't give him an alibi, however, but for the fact that someone decided to go a bit deeper that the surface, he'd have been home and dry.

His lack of dramatisation is consistent with his laissez faire attitude to calling EP and not calling the emergency number ie when he left he said everyone seemed happy.  Why say everyone was happy?  That's the dumbest thing ever.

I'm saying if he was guilty then lay it on thick about the mother of all arguments between SC and her parents.  He could have even found Len Foakes in the field and discussed some farming related task and slid in something about the 'last trailer' and NB bringing it in if SC hasn't killed him.  "She's really going off on one in there but don't say anything to anyone you know what Dad's like about things like that.  See you tomorrow Len".  Then turns up in the morning knowing he can't get in because farmhouse is locked and bolted from within.  Goes off to the Foakes and claims farmhouse is locked and he thinks he can see NB slumped in a chair.  He can then let the Foakes lead the way ie 'I'll come over with you to take a look or we had better call the police/ambulance'.

I don't agree.  An alibi is someone saying he/she was with me eg Mavis Southgate saying Matthew MacDonald was with her on night of murders which completely rules him out (unless of course she lied/committed perjury).  JB calling JM is neither here nor there. 

If you were looking to carry out such a plan waiting until the morning and roping in the Foakes was arguably a better bet.  He could walk there and back no bike.  If anything didn't go to plan he had more time to cover his tracks eg he could have waited to see if SC to bled out from her first gsw etc, etc.

He could tell anyone and everyone when he left WHF the mother of all arguments was ensuing.  Thus setting the scene.

Yeah. On the surface it sounds plausible. But was it plausible for Jeremy? We have Pam's phone call around 10pm. A rather subdued Sheila is just going to bed. June says nothing to Pam to indicate such a violent argument and whilst BW 'sensed' something may have been wrong with Nevill, she doesn't expand. I think Jeremy had worked hard on a script he believed would work -he may previously have rejected other scenario's- and stuck with it.

We must agree to disagree. I WILL agree that phoning Julie is neither here nor there, as, possibly, may be all other points taken individually. By 'farming' out the scenario to LF, he's effectively handing over control. Jeremy was in the driving seat from the moment the door of WHF was closed against the world, until the police broke in. Literally, the stage is his. There may, with hindsight, have been better scripts, but I think he used the one he thought best fitted.

Not really because the Bambers were known to keep family matters in-house.  Remember CC stating in his book that what surprised him the most about SC's funeral/surviving relatives was how little they knew of SC's illness.  He specifically states "even Pamela".  NB's niece Jacquie Wood said the same.

If JB carried out the crimes he is accused of, which we are led to believe by JM were a year or so in the making, I think far better plans exist for setting the scene.

They don't show the case against Bamber is wrong at all. As a novice, guessing trajectories etc from photographs is not scientific.

Again, you're looking at what Jeremy DID through the eyes of someone who knows he was convicted. We can all say 'well that was dumb' or 'he should have said XYZ' but he didn't. He thought he plan was good, didn't want to over-egg. I suspect he didn't stress the notion of problems earlier in the evening because he didn't want to complicate the matter. Police would ask who said/did what and he would have to remember what he had said. He certainly laid it on thick to officers when he told them Sheila was a nutter - that all he had to do.

There's no evidence Malcolm Fletcher was an expert by way of qualifications, training or experience at the time of WHF hence he had to fall back on a "small amount of experience with an air rifle as a small boy" but it didn't prevent him providing unreliable evidence at JB's trial.  If that makes him an expert then I'm no novice!  I'm not guessing the trajectories from photos.  Dr Vanezis confirmed the trajectories of the gsw's NB sustained to his face were approx 20 degrees below the horizontal:

I'll post up his trial testimony in the relevant thread where he talks about the blood production these wounds generated.  Had NB sustained these gsw's in the bedroom he would not have got to the stairs without leaving a trail in the bedroom/landing.  Consider the blood trail around the bed from June's gsw's and there's no pathological evidence that these wounds would generate the sort of blood production NB's facial gsw's generated.

He does have a firearms qualification - http://www.csofs.org/Malcolm-Fletcher - I'm not sure why you keep denying his qualifications?

Some posters are not confident enough in their stance to debate with opposites.

TomG & Luminous Wanderer went straight into hiding after short debates with me.

I was confident enough  in my 'guilty' stance to join & stay at a forum which at the time was 90% supporters.

I can't open your link at the moment as I'm on my ancient IPhone that no longer functions as a smart phone as we know them.  I can upgrade to an iPhonex at no cost but I've grown emotionally attached to this phone.

A poster such as David is determined but not confident in his innocent stance. Attempting a quiet stance change & barely discussing his one reason for it.

He posts on Blue instead of here as he's allowed to post his 'gish gash', banners, images, abuse & diagrams. On IA he will never be challenged.

There are some posters on IA I don't recognise. At present none have ventured to Blue or here.

Yes he has relevant quals now but what did he have at the time of WHF? 

His intro to the court was in stark contrast to other experts all of whom talked about degrees, membership of prof bodies etc.  MF just talked about 8 years of experience in firearms dept and "small amount of experience of an air rifle as a small boy".  I doubt his 8 years in firearms dept qualified him to talk about:

- pathology of gsw's ie volume of blood generated from the various wounds
- drawback mechanism
- reconstruction ie confirm whether or not NB sustained upstairs gsw's on landing

David is challenged on Blue by Charlie Wilkes and myself. 

IA currently has Frankie Lee, TomG, David, Charlie, Samson and myself all of whom believe JB innocent.  I'm mostly ignored as I don't agree with their cranky theories.

You dout 6 years of experience qualified him to talk about firearms and yet with no experience of trajectories etc. you determine that they tell you Jeremy is innocent?

He was probably engaged in routine matters eg matching bullets to firearms that sort of thing.

I do have experience of trajectories from O level maths  8)-))).   To be honest I figured it out more from playing sport than trajectories learned in maths. 

Tbf when MF was cross examined by Ed Lawson for the defence it was his responsibility to have questioned him on how he arrived at NB sustaining his upstairs gsw's in the bedroom v landing instead of simply asking the question and accepting the answer.

It's like reading about Jeremy Bamber

Another psycho bites the dust, but there are still two women, his girlfriend and a relative living in denial...

She wasn't the one who Van Breda rang though. His first girlfriend had more sense than JM and beauty slept through the call, then ditched him. The woman in the video he met later at cookery class and was lucky she didn't end up in a cow pie.

Oh, and hats off to South Africa's Stan Jones - D.Sgt Marlon Appollis - who wasn't gonna take any bull from a creepy spoilt brat.  Doesn't that sound familiar?

Yes, I know. He was free for a year and a half before beinng arrested for murder. The whole thing sounded familiar.

Then phone call was eerie!
