  1. There is ONE thing that conclusively proves his innocence. Sheila was found lying with a gun on her body pointed to her head. She had been shot twice in the neck and jaw (it's perfectly possible to shoot yourself twice with a .22 by the way) It is inconceivable that, if Jeremy Bamber was the killer, he had somehow convinced his sister either BEFORE (in the bedroom where his parents were apparently sleeping 2 feet away in their bed!!) or AFTER the rampage, to calmly lay down and allow him to aim the gun under her chin and kill her. No struggle, drug and alcohol tests on her were negative and NO silencer attached. One of the biggest miscarriages of justice in UK history. Watch the official Bamber videos if you want even more evidence of his innocence (and there's lots more)

  2. He should get a new hearing on the way the police handled the case, the police cleared out the evidence i.e bloodstained carpets ,and other stuff, then Bamber's relatives arrive and find a silencer in a box with blood on it? I mean if Jeremy did do that would he leave a major clue like a silencer on the scene Wouldn't Jeremy have got rid of the silencer? , His relatives come and they investigate it and find the silencer then the police say the relatives solved the crime and the relatives get the farm and inheritance? Jeremy didn't get a fair trial and was convicted under mysterious circumstances ,The police screw up and Jeremy should get a new hearing, he actually should be released by the way the police handled the case.

  3. Bamber did not seem to be grief-stricken when his family was murdered, whether by him or by his sister from reading accounts of his behaviour at the funeral. He was implicated by his cousins and his girlfriend.

  4. We need to think about why Bamber wants to become a free man again after spending the last 33 years in prison and remand. By overturning his conviction he will release a book becouse of his notoriety, which itself will be a real money earner, he will try and claim back parts of the family estate after he was convicted and he will not need to look for a job as since he is only a few years away from retirement. That is the real reason he will never admit to killing his family. Bamber knows any admission of guilt to this stage will neutralise his efforts for release to zero. As the sole survivor of the family, it is obvious the murders were committed by Bamber for financial gain.

  5. I never believed he did it. Just because of something I noticed at the time. It was stated that no one had entered the house at some time after the crime. But there was something on the mantle piece cant remember exactly what but may have been a gun or part of had been moved. It showed that relatives with a vested interest had moved evidence.
