I am bingeing on a Spotify podcast, after watching a More 4 programme last night. Episode One opens with the voice of David Bain. Is he genuinely grief stricken, or putting on an act? Likewise with the (grand mal?) fitting. The trial of David Bain could equal the Jeremy Bamber case and Essex Police in terms of a miscarriage of justice. One may add the murder of Lee Balkwell, and death of Stuart Lubbock and Essex Police.
By Episode Four I began to formulate some sort of idea as to guilt or innocence. As with Amanda Knox, David Bain’s change of statement does not bode well.
Episode Five – how plausible is Laniet’s allegation? She made bizarre statements about having a “half black baby” in Papua New Guinea (at the age of twelve?).
Episode Eight – the forensic evidence neither confirms, nor denies the guilt of the two (and only two) suspects, David Bain and his Father, Robin.
Episode Nine – how much veracity does David command? His version of events varies, his recollection of getting a tattoo a week before the murders and other things.
Slip shod policing, as with the Daniel Morgan murder, may mean that the truth is never uncovered.
