Title: I despair sometimes of the rubbish posted on the Jeremy Bamber forum.
Post by: John on July 11, 2017, 01:48:14 AM
Tonight I saw a post suggesting that Sheila had 10 to 15 seconds before she passed out following the first non fatal shot to her throat. A period of time in which she would have been able to discharge the second fatal shot.

The person who posted this ludicrous suggestion obviously hasn't a bloody clue as to the trauma suffered by someone who is shot in the throat at point blank range.  The shock is instantaneous rendering the person temporarily incapacitated.  This is followed by seering pain so intense that it again will render the person temporarily unable to function.  A gunshot to the throat is so serious that it will render the victim unable to make any decisions let alone be able to target a second shot also to their throat.  The whole idea is utterly preposperous and reveals a very naive thought process by those who would interject such rubbish on behalf of Jeremy Bamber.

Not only do they have no yardstick for it, they lack the ability to IMAGINE how they or anyone else would feel in a given circumstance. This naturally limits what they have to say about it. In this particular case, and from various posters, we've seen Sheila being canny enough to play dead after the first shot, downstairs, and then scramble her way upstairs -with shattered vertebrae!!!- to hide before the second shot finished her off, now we see her coolly deliberating, for 10 to 15 seconds, about her next move!!! NONE seems to have been capable of giving any thought to how it might have FELT to be Sheila -if they had, they'd probably have seen their scenario was impossible- her fear at finding herself in such a threatening situation whilst being in a place which has afforded her safety, would have rendered confused thought processes. Shock, searing pain and blood loss will do as you've described.

The innocent side of blue appears to be gaining strength -which is as it should be on a forum which promotes Jeremy's innocence- and they have a good poster to champion them. However, it does appear -to me- that desperation has crept in. Last night was spent discussing the state of the master bedroom and whether the pictures were of the same room AND if they weren't, had there been an attempt to deceive/trick the eye? Even those items on a chair were questioned because one shot showed them heaped and another showed them tidied. As the list of conspirators becomes added to -and it has to in order to make conspiracy work- conspiracy becomes impossible so more conspirators become added.................

The problem here is that the pathological evidence, both pre-trial and during, from Dr Vanezis and Prof Knight makes clear the following:

- SC could have taken her own life or she may have been murdered

- The time gap between the 2 gsw's was estimated by both experts to be anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes

- Dr Vanezis said it might have been possible for SC to have walked around after the first, not immediately fatal, gsw.  He thought it unlikely due to blood staining

- Dr Vanezis said SC may have been able to hold her head upright

- Both experts said after the first gsw SC may have been stunned, lost consciousness and then regained consciousness or she may not have suffered any such effects after the first gsw. 

- Prof Knight said although the second gsw to SC was fatal in terms of brain damage and losing immediate consciousness the heart can keep pumping for up to some 20 mins afterwards therefore some of the bloodstaining evidenced in the soc images may have originated from the 2nd wound.

The idea the pathological evidence relating to SC in any way shows JB guilty is totally wrong.  Conversely it doesn't show SC took her own life either.

I note that whilst all their professional pronouncements are littered with "may haves/might haves/could haves/anywhere from" not once do they categorically state "WOULD have".

Probably because they are unable to be anymore specific from a scientific perspective.  Why would they categorically state "WOULD have" if it isn't possible to state one way or another?

Prof Knight:  "...but almost nothing is impossible in forensic science".

Prof Knight was known as the pre-eminent pathologist of his generation/era of JB's trial.   If posters think they know better then that's their perogative but I'm happy to accept the pathological evidence from Prof Knight and Dr Vanezis.

Hmm. Vanezis covered himself well. He told CAL  -I guess, on reflection-  that he no longer believed Sheila moved after the first shot, which whether one chooses to accept it, or not, is rather more definite than "it might have been possible for her to walked around................" I'm happy to accept that and the finding of Prof Knight.

Well they were both clear that the 2nd wound was virtually instantaneously fatal.  So I guess this shows there were some aspects they were able to be conclusive about. 

But there are very few absolutes in life!

I think physiologically it was possible for SC to move voluntarily after the first gsw but the bloodstaining, or lack of, doesn't support SC moving ie standing up and moving around.  I don't believe SC moved between gsw's in terms of location.

I believe SC pulled the trigger for a second time but whether this was done consciously ie voluntarily or some sort of involuntary movement eg spasm I've no idea

Whether a pathologist with more experience in gsw's could shed more light on the matter I don't know.  Dr Vanezis only seems to have had limited experience with gsw's.  Maybe Prof Knight had more as he was at one time a pathologist in the British army but he was also non-committal so maybe that's just how it was.

It is interesting how we all visually perceive things differently.  Do you recall when I thought June's bedside lamp featured the face of a monster like creature until you pointed out the lamp featured the face of an owl with a pot of cold cream or the like in front of it  @)(++(*  Can others see the two possibilities?  In reality Myster is correct.

I happened to get that from the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine. Although going by memory alone, I got the number of seconds slightly wrong it actually estimates five to ten seconds.

Hey, David.

Re: the blood stain under the bible. Bearing in mind that it's almost a complete circle. Mike reckons that Sheila wrote "Special Branch" in her own blood. Obviously that's bollocks, because Mike's a loony. I reckon that Bamber tried to wipe the blood from the end of the silencer. Then tried to hide it with the bible.

Why quote general medi evidence when the pathologist who carried out the autopsy makes it clear there must have been "a few seconds" time lapse between the first and second GSW?

Only a fool would categorically state JB is innocent.  Nelly has stated in the past there are some aspects that point to SC and others to JB.  On balance he thinks SC was responsible.  He also said the expert evidence at trial was poor particularly with regard to ballistics.

It would be helpful if we knew whose blood formed the stain and whose blood on the bible.

John:
Two shot suicides are common enough. It was a deceptive angle for Sheila, and the first shot was essentially a flesh wound, and she either slumped or deliberately realigned for the second shot. I have looked at it closely too, and Charlie Wilkes confirmed with a 22 of his own, unloaded of course.
She is lucky she had two bullets. She loaded two after she emptied a whole cartridge of bullets into her children.

Charlie's demo showed a man in full control of his senses, not on Haldol medication (I think), and using a carbine version of an entirely different weapon (without even a fitted moderator). So much for the "successful" experiment!

Dr Vanezis' trial testimony makes it absolutely clear it was impossible for him to say with any certainty how SC would react to the first wound which injured the external jagular in terms of any pain and shock making clear:

"It depends on the person".

When Anthony Arlidge made reference to SC's gender and size in terms of her ability to cope with such an injury Dr Vanezis said this was no indication of a person's constitution.  I think it is generally accepted women have higher pain thresholds due to childbearing.  Or maybe this is an old wives tale!  Not that I think it is particularly relevant either way but maybe indicative of perhaps a sexist attitude held by Anthony Arlidge, a man born in the 30's, in suggesting that SC's build and gender would make her less able to cope, mentally and physcially, with such an injury than say an athletically built male.

The lower non-fatal neck wound: 

"injured soft tisse and fractured bone but has not actually immediately damaged any of the vital organs, such as the brain or the spinal chord".

Seriously though... Unless one has been hit by a .22 in the neck, then no-one knows what it would be like. It's possible that she fainted after the first neck shot, so even without a second could have bled out until dead.

Yes I agree but as Dr Vanezis said it will vary from person to person. 

It is possible SC may have lost consciousness.  On the other hand she may not have.  Had the second gsw not supervened then yes the first gsw may well have eventually proved fatal.  But the bottom line is that there's not a shred of pathological evidence to suggest SC could not have inflicted both gsw's.  Conversley there's no evidence suggesting she did.

Did the jury convict on the pathological evidence?  Unlikely since it doesn't touch the threshold of beyond reasonable doubt.

According to Dr Vanezis "if left neglected it would certainly have caused a great deal of morbidity if not fatal outcome".

As an aside I wonder what affect, if any, Haloperidol had on SC's constitution in terms of her ability to cope with any pain and shock?

Yep but only if left neglected.

A little Google search turns up conflicting outcomes for research and studies on Haloperidol and pain relief.  Like most of these things it may well depend on the individual's biochemistry.

Yes, I noted that. I also noted that he didn't go quite as far as saying she could have survived. I absorbed as much as I could on the "conflicting outcomes for research and studies on Haloperidol and pain relief". The effects are always dependent on the individual patient.

The first shot resulted in a very serious wound to the throat, certainly nothing akin to a flesh wound.  In any event, had she shot herself her fingers would have been covered in blood following the first failed shot with blood smearing across her throat.  None of this occurred as evidenced by the smear free police photos.

"Vanezis recorded in his initial notes: 'Blood-stained palm print on nightdress matches bloodstains appear to have been transferred from r.hand...Both hands not contaminated apart from bloodstains'.  But in court he declared that Sheila's hands were 'completely free of blood and if she'd pressed against the nightdress I would have still seen some traces of blood on her palms.  He explained that blood on her nightdress 'appearedto have been transferred from her wrist' although 'the palms of her hand were certainly not contaminated with blood, but there was spotting of blood associated and close to the wrist.' "

"Asked to address the discrepancy today, Vanezis muses: 'I'm not sure whether I said that after the blood had been washed from her hands'.  Regarding his courtroom statement about the stain on her nightdress, he reflects: 'The smear in the blood on her neck wounds is obviously from putting her hand up to it. Her fingers could then have made the marks on her nightdress because there are three streaks forming the stain - two together and one slightly apart. The marks could be from her wrist, but the thickness of them definitely resembles fingers and she certainly has some blood on the side of her hand.  There's also a line through the streaks where the material has folded, giving a slightly distorted pattern'. The blood trails evident on Sheila's lower right arm, together with substantial blood staining on the right side of the nightdress in the armpit area and below, reinforced the probability that she had raised her hand to her neck".

I take it the smear he's referring to is the one (or what I believe are two) across the second fatal wound?

If those three linear stains on her nightdress are from her fingers and the result of putting them first on the neck wound, which was supposedly instantly fatal, how come she then placed her hand on the rifle near the trigger when it should realistically have flopped down onto the floor by her right side?

ETA: ... or remained resting on or near her neck?

The second shot was instantly fatal. After putting her hand onto her neck after the first shot, her bloodied hand could have gone anywhere.

The only smears I can see appear to be across the upper immediately fatal second gsw and do appear to be a mirror image, top and bottom, as illustrated here by John:

http://miscarriageofjustice.co/index.php?topic=6386.msg257611#msg257611

However I'm not sure about the two dark blobs.

It's interesting how trial testimony from Dr Vanezis and Prof Knight both suggest SC was sitting upright for the first gsw and suggest maybe sitting on the bed. 

I still maintain SC's found location/position doesn't look right.  All the expert evidence supports SC falling immediately backwards after the second gsw.  Therefore I would expect to see her head wedged against the bedside cabinet.  Instead her head has fallen to one side which in any event would surely have hit the corner of the bedside cabinet and yet no marks to her head to support this.

The good news here is that bloodstain analysis has moved on leaps and bounds since JB's trial and with all the soc photos still available expert analysis could prove very illuminating!  However strictly speaking its unlikely to assist JB at any furture appeal since the CoA have already ruled it is something that could have been adjudicated on at trial - use it or lose it!  This imo is unfair as a defendant/appellant can hardly be held responsible for appropriate expert testimony.  A quick read of trial testimony from Dr Vanezis, Prof Knight and John Hayward shows they were all woefully inadequate compared with modern day bloodstain analysts.     

There's literally a mountain of unexplored data from physical evidence at soc by way of bloodstains, bullet trajectories both of which are underpinned by science.

See... this is where I disagree with John, in that I don't think the smear is a mirror image. In the annotated photo attached, the wound hole (1a) and the stream of blood from that hole up to the line of symmetry should be reflected in the area (1b), but they don't match. Similarly blob (2a) should be reflected in the area (2b), but again they don't match.

This why Vanezis thought they were smears, as if a finger, thumb or other object such as the moderator end or rifle muzzle had been drawn across the wound and stream of blood from left to right, leaving those blobs on the right-hand side.

Yes see what you mean.  Now I feel like a fool torn between the pair of you.  A bit like Mary MacGreggor I suppose!

Now...did SC sit on the edge of the bed for the first lower non-fatal gsw hence the vertical bloodstaining running down her side and then relocate herself on the floor for the second upper fatal gsw hence the horizontal bloodstaining running over her arm?

David are you sure there isn't any blood NB's side of the bed that might pertain to SC?  There's a substance used for bloodstaining experiments.  It's bugging me that I can't recall the name but its something like Ublek!?!

There is a lot of blood on that side of the bed. Apparently it's all June's who walked over there & back again after being shot up to 8 times.

This is surprising, as Sheila was shot twice there & Nevill slept there & was shot 4 times in the bedroom.

Just had another think about this and even more convinced that the smear is not mirrored. If it had been, then the circled area would have been far messier than it appears. So imo, definitely caused by a thumb, finger or something else being dragged across the wound once or twice from left to right, then lifted off to create those two dark blobs.

Try holding a rifle at arms length against ones neck to within half an inch without actually touching the skin, quite a feat.  Now imagine trying to do that while semi conscious, in agony and choking on blood.

Had Sheila shot herself a second time her blood would have been on the tip of the rifle as it was held against an already bleeding neck.  This would of course have resulted in blood smearing to the neck.  Neither of which was evident which speaks for itself.

Clearly her killer had no difficulty positioning the rifle for the second shot as she lay head back after the initial failed shot.

You make a hugely valid point, John. Every time I've tried to imagine what it might feel like to be desperate enough to shoot myself, the rifle is always pushed into my neck as a way of steadying it and ensuring that if my hand moved as I pulled the trigger, the bullet would go where I wanted it to.

Desperate people do shoot themselves and sometimes they make such a hash of it that a second bullet is needed to finish the job. In every occasion however the initial shot resulted in a non critical superficial wound which wasn't what occurred with Sheila Caffell.

But if that second wound was instantly fatal, then her right hand should still have been in position on or near the rifle trigger without moving anywhere distant. There was also no blood on the fingers of her left hand, so they couldn't have caused the smear(s) either.

Hmm, but I'm not coming from a position of Sheila having the gun in her own hands. She quite obviously, after the first injury, couldn't have held the gun steady with one hand AND pulled the trigger. I don't see her checking the first wound at all if she'd been responsible for it. Might her head have lolled forwards from the first shot and then placed backwards and sideways for the second shot?

Well, I hope your sleep wasn't unduly disturbed! The Smears!! There are finite -reasonable!!- possibilities. If we examine the extremities attached to the torso, the head is by far the heaviest -I once knew the ratio but I've forgotten it- and I'm quite convinced that the effect of the first shot -the physical shock of shattered vertebrae- would have been likely to have knocked it off it's perch, so to speak. It may have only slipped to the side but it's own weight would have forced it forward, possibly in a rolling motion? smearing the blood in the crease. It would have been necessary to lift it from that position to expose the area for the second shot. It seems to me that the obvious lifting point would be the chin -the head being dead weight, this couldn't have been accomplished with one finger- fingers coming into contact with the original wound would cause smears.

This is surprising, as Sheila was shot twice there & Nevill slept there & was shot 4 times in the bedroom.

Blood tests on carpet samples taken from that side of the room along with the blue socks show the blood originated from June and no one else. 

June was not capable of voluntary movement after either of the gsw's sustained to her head so obviously these were inflicted later in the found location.   

The physical evidence surrounding NB's gsw's by way of bloodstaining, casings, distance of shots, trajectories and wound tracks doesn't support any gsw's sustained in the master bedroom.  Thread already created along with sources  8)-)))

According to Prof Knight's trial testimony when someone sustains a gsw there is often a momentary delay before bleeding starts.   The shock causes the blood vessels to contract and then the blood comes out through the aperture.  The delay may only be a few seconds.

Based on the pathological evidence SC was incapable of voluntary movement after the second immediately fatal gsw so would not have been capable of putting her hand up to the second wound.  Maybe after the first gsw she put her finger(s)/hand to the wound and transferred it to the second wound to identify the site.  This seems unlikely as I would expect to see a correpsonding smear elsewhere and I can't see one. 

SC's found location doesn't look right to me.  Why would her head fall to the left of the cabinet?  Surely it would fall straight back and end up wedged between her neck and the cabinet?  I think she was nearer the connecting door and moved by the raid team in their haste to check behind that door.   

The bloodstaining to the left (as I look at the image) looks to me as though it has dried and then cracked as the skin has expanded due to swelling - there's visible bruising to my eye at least.

SC's gsw's were described as "loose contact". 

The pathologists at trial, Dr Vanezis and Prof Knight, said it was impossible to say with any certainty the effects of the first gsw ie whether or not she was stunned, felt any pain etc. 

Prof Knight said there's a momentary delay in blood presenting from gsw's as per post above.  Therefore the muzzle of the rifle may have avoided blood from SC's gsw's if it moved immediately after the trigger was pulled.

The rifle was staged to make it look like suicide, therefore not surprising that the muzzle was poorly positioned away from her neck in attempting to make the rest of it balance on her body without falling off.

I agree the first wound hadn't been touched by SC, neither could the second. So someone or something else was responsible.

But how would we know how the rifle would fall without viewing numerous images of sucide victims by gsw's? 

No doubt a ballistics and bloodstain analyst could shed light on the matter.  The so-called expert evidence at trial was truly appalling in this regard.

Not one iota as appalling as the ludicrous assumption by one or two ijuts on blue that Sheila's hand was cut, gouged or bleeding, when it's so obvious that they are simply dried up and disturbed streams of blood which came from her neck wounds. Dr Vanezis is no fool.

I don't think I've seen the images under discussion but I think its most unlikely SC sustained any wounds not noted on the autopsy report:

- Why would Dr Vanezis note all manner of minor points such as stretch marks and nicotine stains and overlook cuts, gouges etc?  He even noted the dressed abrasion on SC's abdomen. 

- As Caroline has pointed out Dr Vanezis didn't make note of any cuts, gouges in his autopsy notes written during post mortem which kind of puts paid to Roch's theory that Dr Vanezis changed his autopsy to suit DCI Ainsley.  Why on earth would Dr Vanezis sing to DCI Ainsley's tune in any event?  If such a request was ever put to Dr Vanezis I've no doubt he would report him/her. 

- Numerous officers at soc observed SC along with Dr Craig.  6 police officers attended post mortem.  Prof Knight for the defence had access to all autopsy images.   

- There's no evidence any of the victims engaged in hand-to-hand fighting.  SC was stood at the foot of the bed in the master bedroom and shot June whilst she was in bed and getting out of either 5 or 6 times (6th wound may have been graze only).  NB appeared on the landing and SC turned her attention to him shooing NB twice in the face.  NB turned and SC followed shooting NB twice on the main staircase leading to the hall.  The pair ended up in the kitchen with NB severely injured and unable to defend himself.  SC beat NB with the rifle and shot him a further four times.  Meanwhile June moved around the bed, in an attempt to use the phone maybe, and was back at the main door when SC shot her twice in the head.  All the pathological and physical evidence at soc supports this.

Incompetence and negligence are one thing (not that I'm suggesting Dr Vanezis was necessarily either) deliberately altering evidence to bolster the prosecutions case is something quite different. 

In the case of Ian Tomlinson it appears Dr Patel was incompetent and negligent as opposed to anything more sinister.  He was struck off and seems a world away from Dr Vanezis:

It works both ways though as it is often claimed JB is a psychopath and yet we have no name to put to any professional making such a diagnosis. 

A recent post on Blue:

Thanks Jackie, I could probably write you a similar list about Bamber, but, you wouldn't want to believe that list.  I will start you off, do you believe what the defence psychiatrist said, "if ever there was a psychopath it's Jeremy Bamber". Do you believe what the psychopath said who worked at full Sutton, he's 100% guilty as hell.

He has professed his innocence ever since. However, the psychiatrist engaged by Bamberís defence team said that his very real belief that he had not committed the murders was a prime reason for diagnosing him as a psychopath.
Concluding that he did kill his family and had suppressed the knowledge until it no longer existed, he added: ĎIf ever there was a psychopath, itís Jeremy Bamber.í


1.  Who was the defence psychiatrist who made this assessment?  Without the name of an appropriately qualified person it is meaningless. 

2.  Who was the "psychopath" who made the assessment at Full Sutton?  (I assume the poster meant psychiatrist).  Again without the name of an appropriately qualified person it is meaningless.

3.  I struggle with a qualified person using language like "he's guilty as hell".  Sounds more like the sort of language a layperson would use.  In fact DB used these very words:

http://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/5034503.Jeremy_Bamber_is__as_guilty_as_hell__says_his_cousin/

4. A psychiatrist diagnosing a defendent/prisoner as a psychopath on the basis of protesting their innocence reminds me of the case of Stefan Kiszko:

"One forensic psychiatrist made a note of Kiszko suffering from "delusions of innocence"."  Although again no name of the forensic psychiatrist in the following link.  I will endeavour to find it elsewhere.

Post by: Holly Goodhead on July 29, 2017, 05:49:48 PM
Expert speak for not impossible.  But highly improbable all the same.

As far as I can see Dr Vanezis was resolute during his trial testimony stating it was impossible to conclude from the pathological evidence whether SC took her own life or she was murdered. 

Prof Knight at trial:

Sheila is the only shooting of the whole 5 where the bullets have gone upwards.  Now to shoot upwards obviously one must put the gun under the chin with the butt down there at the bottom.  For a third party to do this seems rather extroidinary, to shoot upwards through the throat, because he would have to hold the gun under her neck when she is obviously upright because of the blood splashing, and although it is not impossible it seems a strange thing to happen.  As I say it is the only death of the five where the wounds went upwards and not downwards or straight through.  So, I think it would be difficult for someone else to do this without her objecting.

The following is an extract from the CoA:

467. The next feature of Mr Webster's evidence which left us unimpressed was the way in which he criticised Mr Hayward for assessing the chance that the blood was not a mixture as being a remote chance. He said that a remote chance was equivalent to the chance that he might be struck by lightning as he left the court building. We think that that was to suggest something far less likely than that which Mr Hayward had sort to convey to the jury. Forensic scientists are used to putting probabilities on a scale that a jury can understand. At one end of the scale is a very strong chance, at the other a remote chance. To suggest that it was giving the chance as being so unlikely that it could effectively be discounted is to distort what Mr Hayward was saying. Mr Webster's own assessment of the chance as a "real" chance is unhelpful. Whether there is a very strong chance of something happening or a remote chance of it happening, it is a real chance. A real chance does nothing to assess the likelihood of something happening in a way that a jury could properly understand.

As you will see the appeal court judges state "Forensic scientists are used to putting probabilities on a scale that a jury can understand."  No such probabilities were given by Dr Vanezis or Prof Knight.

From Dr DiMaio - pathologist with expertise in gunshot wounds:

Suicides in which multiple gunshot wounds are present are uncommon, but
not rare. These wounds may involve only one area, e.g., the head, or multiple
areas, such as the head and chest. Multiple gunshot wounds confined exclusively
to the head are the least common, whereas those of the chest are the
most common. A lack of knowledge of anatomy, flinching at the time the
trigger is pulled, defective ammunition, ammunition of the wrong caliber,
or just missing a vital organ, account for such multiple wounds.Occasionally,
individuals have shot themselves simultaneously in the head with two different
weapons (Figure 14.10).
Wounds that may appear to be fatal on initial examination may not be
so on autopsy. Thus, in an individual who shot himself four times in the
chest and once in the head with a .22-caliber pistol, one would assume that
the head wound was the fatal shot. However, the autopsy revealed that the
bullet flattened out against the frontal bone, and death was due to one of the
four gunshot wounds of the chest, with one bullet going through the heart.
The largest number of gunshot wounds in a suicide that the author is
aware of is nine.5 The weapon was a nine-shot .22-caliber revolver. All nine
bullets entered the chest, with one perforating a vital organ, the left lung,
causing massive hemorrhage, hemothorax, and death.

According to Dr Vanezis the angle of the lower wound was slightly upwards from the horizontal by about 10 - 20 degrees with the neck in the neutral position.

Samson, you obviously have little, if any, understanding of those with a narcissistic personality intent on getting their hands on their family's wealth.  Bamber's own defence team were advised that the memory of the terrible nature of what he'd done had been shoved to the back of his mind, then dropped off as if it never existed. Bamber and Bain... two peas out of the same pod imo.

Why is it that you constantly avoid all the other evidence and focus on only one particular part of the case, i.e. the "suicide" shot which is open to different interpretations, not just yours?  There was nothing to stop David Bain sneaking out from behind the bay window and firing at close range whilst his father was engrossed in prayer with eyes shut and oblivious to anyone being present. Some killers just get lucky. Then we have the ejected bullet casing position nowhere near where it should have landed, and that mysterious self-balancing magazine case.

I thought "Black Hands" was a thorough expose of David Bain's involvement... well done, Martin van Beynen.

The only source for the above is author Roger Wilkes.  Completely unreliable imo.  No name for the mystery psychologist or members of JB's defence involved in this alleged conversation.  In the same way I can't see Dr Vanezis overlooking numerous marks on the victims, I can't see JB's defence sitting around gossiping with book authors, especially given the high profile and contentious nature of the case and the fact JB has always protested his innocence and continually looked for ways to appeal his sentence.

So by that same token CAL is also unreliable when she recalled Sheila's best friend, Tora Tomkinson, saying -"I just knew she couldn't have done it!", or in interviewing Vanezis, Fletcher and Ainsley, 30 years later.

It was a case conference on the eve of trial, which included an eminent psychiatrist (who probably did not wish to be named in the book) in the presence of Geoffrey Rivlin, Ed Lawson, et al.

Explain David Bain's blood-soaked opera gloves hidden under Stephen's bed, Holly.  Surely you don't think Bain senior would actually go to the trouble of searching for and wearing them to prevent fingerprints, if he intended to commit suicide?!!!

Or Bain's various fits which first responders to the scene and even his jailer friend later noted and dismissed as fake. Listen to the Episode Four video of Graeme Stanley recalling his odd behaviour...

https://interactives.stuff.co.nz/blackhands/evidence/ (https://interactives.stuff.co.nz/blackhands/evidence/)

Given the rifle belonged to DB why would he worry about fingerprints if he was the perp?  Why would he choose white opera gloves?  He had an early morning paper round and the murders occured during the winter months so I'm assuming he had winter gloves?  Were the gloves checked for gsr and other debris?  Were the gloves "hidden"?  The blood stains are described as "smears" so maybe RB picked them up to wipe something? 

I'll listen to the "odd behaviour" later but I see the same thing in all these cases and I don't consider it evidence of anything.  Blimey if I found myself charged with some crime I can hear it all now. "She was a bit odd...she called herself Naughty Nun on an internet forum dedicated to debating the case of Jeremy Bamber.  Then she was banned and reinvented herself as Holly Goodhead on another forum where she spent hours posting about Jeremy Bamber.  She was adopted too!  Says it all really.  Must be guilty.  I only wish we could find a way of circumventing the legal process.  We all know she's guilty and it would save the state thousands of pounds".   8(8-))

No because CAL has quoted all sources and if she was found misquoting then potentially those misquoted could sue her/publishers.

So we are told but would Rivlin and Lawson relay this to Roger Wilkes circa 1994 knowing JB was appealing his sentence?  (Around this time JB was represented by David Martin Sperry, Isabelle Gillard and Ewen Smith).  If they did where's the evidence the "eminent psychiatrist" actually met with JB to carry out a formal assessment?

Also thinking about it, as far as I can recall, none of the other authors:  CAL, CC, Claire Powell or Scott Lomax have been granted interviews with past or present members of JB's defence?  Or the prosecution?  Or any member of the judiciary eg judge.  It just doesn't ring true that these people would sit around gossiping with light weight book authors.   

PH claimed a chance meeting with the late Ed Lawson but as it happened all PH's interviews/meetings took place between the contributors passing away and publication  8)-))) 8(0(*
