“The nozzle from a petrol can, heavy-duty black gloves and a roll of black plastic sheeting” were found in the house.

What sensible household doesn’t have assorted sundries like these?  Of course, we are supposed to insinuate some sinister purpose behind this arbitrary list of everyday items, but it is a redundant ploy.  You can pick any three items you like: let’s say a rolling pin, a cookie cutter and a basting tray were found in the kitchen.  If they have no connection to what happened then you are simply misleading your readers into thinking that they are relevant, while leaving them to imagine all the possible ways one might misuse a cookie cutter.  Let us be clear:

“There is no scientific evidence linking any of the exhibits found in the house or garage to the deceased or defendant” – CPS admissions at trial.

“All exhibits were negative for apparent blood" – Police support scenes of Crime Officer.

“The car was examined and searched.  Nothing of relevant was found" – CPS admissions at trial

I agree, unless there is some direct link between said items and the deceased one cannot really infer some nefarious cause associated with said objects.
De troothe has the annoying habit of coming to the surface just when you least expect it!!

Je ne regrette rien!!

What reason did Mark give for these items being found in the house of his "bed bound" father?

We know that Sami was no longer bed-bound by early 2009:

Neighbours had seen Sami laying bricks outside his home over that very summer, and doing various gardening tasks.

It should not be surprising to find these common items in the home of a DIY enthusiast like Sami.
