Here is a link to an interesting podcast on the case, very detailed.

https://youtu.be/LxzG7ga6xJY 
I downloaded the full series when first published and thought they were very well done by Martin van Beynen.  Well worth a listen, although you need to have more than just a passing interest in the case, and time to concentrate on it fully, I think.

More info, photos, plans and a police video of the Bain house here...

(Mike Ainsley)

"The key issue for me was getting to the truth.  I'm left with the conclusion that there is no doubt in my mind that Jeremy Bamber committed those offences... he murdered five members of his family." -
(Jeanette McDiarmid - Metropolitan Police Murder Review Unit - Operation Stokenchurch)

"I know for a fact that Sheila had no idea how to use a rifle, or to reload one.  She'd never done any shooting in her life.  This, took a marksman's skill... twenty-three bullets and they nearly all found their target and had to be reloaded twice apparently.  It's impossible...
So everything that Jeremy is saying is an absolute myth, it's fantasy and that's the end of the story for me." -
(Colin Caffell)

"My brother-in-law said to me as Jeremy turned round and gave a massive great smile... He said to me - "Jeremy did it, didn't he?".
And that's, I think, the point where we hadn't got any doubts." -
(David Boutflour at the funeral of the Bamber family)

Thanks Myster, interesting to see the video of the house. I agree it's a good, professional job by Van Beynen in presenting the facts from both sides and a must for anyone interested in the case.

I approached with an open mind to the prospect of a MoJ, but looking at all the evidence, the only miscarriage is him being acquitted at the 2nd trial.

For me what sticks out is his bloodied fingerprints all over the gun (and Robin's lack of) could only have meant one thing. The investigation failing to test this blood allowed Bain at trial to claim it was rabbit blood and plant the seed of reasonable doubt in some of the jury.

What little I've heard about the case leads me to believe he's guilty.

Although a friend of mine's father was his cell mate for a time.  And, for whatever it's worth, my friend's father believes he's innocent.
