Campaigners poised for new bid to clear Jodi Jones killer!


This is the heading from yet another story fed this time to Press by Mitchell campaigner Sandra Lean.  Mitchell's lawyers have already submitted an application to the SCCRC last year which by all accounts has been rejected out of hand.  Lets say I am not in the least surprised since all that Lean and her small band of loyal followers have ever produced is hearsay and innuendo with the odd laughable theory thrown in for good measure.  They have blamed just about everyone in the neighbourhood for Jodi Jones' murder so no change there then.

Self proclaimed author Lean must realise that it is evidence and corroborated facts which count where the SCCRC and the appeal Courts are concerned.  Sandra Lean's attempts to extricate Mitchell have so far all ended in failure and look certain to continue to do so given the facts in the case.

As a reminder, Luke Mitchell's brother Shane failed to corroborate his alibi at the time of the murder. Shane stated in court that he was not aware of his brothers presence in the family home at the time when Jodi Jones was murdered.  The Mitchell brothers mother insists that Luke made the family dinner that evening and Shane came down for it before taking it back up to his bedroom. It should also be noted that Shane forgot about this in his initial statement to police and went back to change it after being reminded of it by his mother??   Does this sound credible?

Now campaigner Sandra Lean will be attempting to persuade the SCCRC that lie detector tests recently undertaken by both Luke Mitchell and his mother Corinne have some legitimacy.  What Lean is attempting to do is to bake a snowball...basically she has a snowballs chance in hell of persuading the SCCRC that this junk science is worth anything.

Given her last efforts on behalf of killer Adrian Prout I will be surprised if she is ever taken seriously again and that is saying something!

I am somewhat bemused at the Evening News for even printing such a rubbish story but then again it is silly season in Edinburgh so I suppose anything for a laugh!
