Here is the answer to the first question
Why did Mark lie when he claimed that his father was living with friends in London?
?
I still hadn’t heard from dad when I came home in the New Year only to find the house empty, and I wasn’t getting any answer to my calls or texts. I had no real notion of where my father actually was by this point and when the neighbours told me they hadn’t seen him either I came to my own, albeit naive conclusions. It all stemmed from ideas dad had been toying with as far back as the summer about what he might do once I’d moved out. One of his plans involved staying with Egyptian friends from a church we used to go to. Given that this was the only place he’d specifically mentioned to me before, and knowing that he’d stayed there in the past, the only logical explanation seemed to be that he’d followed through with it. This was the assumption I conveyed to the neighbours I bumped into on 15th and 22nd January 2010.

I wasn’t able to provide any proof of these conversations with dad at my trial but we’ve just stumbled upon evidence for it amongst dad’s paperwork, literally about a month ago. On 23rd March 2009, dad visited the websites of two Coptic churches he hadn’t been to or had any contact with for at least 8 years. He printed out 2 pages for safekeeping, and this is what we found. They contain contact details for the church and maps with directions as to how to get there. One of them is in London.  We’ve also gathered evidence as to previous occasions when dad stayed with friends from these Churches, and times when I was left with them as a child while he was away on business.

Although then this wasn’t a lie, it’s fair to say that I hadn’t been completely open or honest with the neighbours on previous encounters.  The main reason is that I really didn’t know them that well.  We’d lived in the same street for 20 years or more but this was the first year I’d actually spoken to any of them:

•   “I do not know much about Sami. He was reclusive and kept himself to himself, he didn’t really integrate. In 22 years I spoke to him once or twice a year” JRM
•   “As the years passed Sami became more insular and didn’t really interact with the neighbours. He was intensely private; the curtains were always closed regardless of the time of day. I’ve never been invited to his house in all the years we have lived here” CSC
•   “Sami informed me that he wouldn’t be coming back. He was very reserved and private.  After a while he cut us dead” JPI
•   “As a young child, Mark was told and bullied in what to do every day. He was not allowed to talk to us (neighbours)” MAR

And again, Mark didn't contact Sami for 3 weeks whilst he was in Moscow, so what calls and texts is he referring to and why send the neighbours Christmas cards?

There's lot of things like this that just don't add up.  I don't believe for a moment that had Sami gone off as Mark claims that he wouldn't have been in touch with his son during that period.

Is there any evidence at all which could point to Mark's innocence?

All the testimonials on his website scream psychopathic traits IMO... http://www.freemarkalexander.org/testimonials/

Though it's unlikely most, if not all of those people who've written them will know what a classic psychopath is (as was once the case for some of us)

It's clear that Mark's website is controlled by him and he's clearly a highly manipulative individual IMO.

Apparently one of the neighbours wrote the following:

“Mark was a very pleasant young man. I couldn’t imagine how he became so nice after having the father he did”.


The fact is he didn't! His mask slipped when he lost all control and murdered his elderly father.

I'd like to see the full transcripts of Marks police interviews.

This isn't proof that Sami was alive in October.  He failed to keep medical appointments and was uncontactable after mid August.

http://www.freemarkalexander.org/serious-case-review/

This was a claim that the prosecution knew, or should reasonably have known, to be false. They had gathered evidence during a Serious Case Review which directly contradicted what they were saying at trial. Sami was, it turns out, habitually elusive and uncontactable.

I couldn’t agree more. Sami had several mobile phones so there will be data on them showing his whereabouts. One thing still troubles me. Mark took the hub from the house in order to set up the internet at his flat in London leaving his dad with no internet. Mark worked in computers so must have known that when you set up a new contract you are provided with a hub. This is usually delivered the next day. Mark claims not to have known this which I find worrying.

Very interesting Daisy. Mark obviously knew more than he has ever admitted to. He also knows that the moment his family starts to question his actions is the moment this pretence falls apart.

Apparently Mark found Sami's main mobile phone in their car when he returned to London on the 5th Sept.  It went flat two days later and was returned to be recharged on his next trip back home. Police found that one during a house search, along with a number of empty boxes belonging to other phones.  No mention of those being found though.

I'm not sure if Mark needed to buy any new contract and hub, if the home PC was a shared one as claimed.  Maybe FC will clarify?

Is that a black electric cable, leading from a metal back box fixed on the house wall to what appears to be a grey PVC tube then to some sort of underground meter or junction box covered with rectangular patch of gravel / concrete on the lower left?

Or is it fibre-optic cable for a new broadband installation?

Are these bags of sand in the garage, and if so, are / were they the same type used to create the three mortar layers?

Of course he needed his own hub. This is relevant to your individual contract. When you ask BT to set up an internet connection to your property you receive an email giving you all the terms of the contract. They also inform you that they will be delivering your hub within two or three days. Your IP address is unique to your contract at the property where you live. Mark phoned me yesterday and I raised this issue with him and he still told me he had no idea how this works. It has nothing to do with the computer at the family home which was shared. I just don’t buy his story. There was no need for him to remove the hub from the family home.

All these building materials to carry out hard landscaping but I bet Sami Alexander never bought any of it?

From past experience of employing building contractors, when I wasn't doing the job myself, it's usually they who have an account at a local builders' merchant to buy all the materials needed, then you pay the contractor when the job is finished.  Perhaps through being parsimonious and such a controlling personality, Sami insisted on purchasing these goods himself.


From Mark Alexander's website:


Dad always got several quotes for the same job. He’d pick out labourers advertising in the windows of newsagents, in the Thompsons Local Directory, or who had been recommended to him. So, in late 2009 for example:


18 June: Dad purchased bricks and building materials for delivery to the house.
9 August: Wood Machinist RH replaced the side door frame and side door to the garage and gave dad a quote for fencing.
12 August: Landscape Gardener AH visited the house to mow the lawn.
21 August: Dad purchased more fencing and building materials.
30 August: Another Landscape Gardener, AB, visited the house to give dad a quote for block paving and relaying a patio.
4 September: Tree Surgeon GB visited the house to give dad a quote for reducing a willow tree.
5 September: I drove dad to a local builders’ merchant, where he met Tool Hire Manager KS.


We identified more than 40 contractors and labourers who my father had hired over the years. Contacting them has not yielded any new information, however, and we will need the public’s help to work out who may have been involved.

And not one was ever found who had any contact with him after he disappeared.  Mark Alexander ordered the ready-mix concrete which was wheelbarrowed in and tipped on his father's grave. The only time Mark Alexander ordered any materials was after he knew his father was dead

I agree, but we do not know what aliases Sami used.
