Case Ref : 19850907, Bamber, Jeremy

Official Narrative

Jeremy Nevill Bamber (born Jeremy Paul Marsham; 13 January 1961) was convicted of the 1985 White House Farm murders in Tolleshunt D'Arcy, Essex, in which the victims included Bamber's parents, Nevill and June Bamber; his sister, Sheila Caffell; and his sister's six-year-old twin sons Daniel and Nicholas Caffell. Returning a majority verdict, the jury found that, after committing the murders to secure a large inheritance, Bamber had placed the rifle in the hands of his 28-year-old sister, who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, to make the scene appear to be a murder–suicide.

Bamber is serving life imprisonment under a whole life tariff. He has repeatedly applied unsuccessfully to have his conviction overturned or his whole life tariff removed; his extended family remains convinced of his guilt.

Until very recently I believed it had been proven that Jeremy Bambar had killed his sister, parents and nephews. Then I heard he had new evidence and was trying again to appeal his conviction. I thought this was rediculous - new evidence, after 35 years. Out of curiosity I went onto his official website expecting to see something laughable. What I saw was really amazing. I am now fully convinced he is an Innocent man. I know you could help this man.

Has Richard ever considered investigating Jeremy Bamber and the murders at White House Farm in Essex in 1985? Seems to me that the family members not involved ‘discovered evidence’ at the house that the police missed. Until then, the story was quite clear to the police that Jeremy’s sister Sheila was the murderer.
