Chilling murder Jeremy Bamber shot dead five of his family in one of the most shocking crimes Britain has ever seen.
The monster, 58, who was convicted to a life sentence,is convinced he is innocent and will be freed from the high-security West Yorkshire prison, nicknamed the Monster Mansion.
Bamber killed his adoptive parents Nevill and June Bamber, both 61, sister Sheila Caffell, 28, and her twins Nicholas and Daniel at the farm near Tolleshunt D’Arcy, Essex.
The investigating officer initially regarded the case as a murder suicide by Sheila, a former model known as Bambi, who suffered from mental health issues and had been diagnosed as schizophrenic.
But he was wrong, and 14 months later Bamber, then 25, was convicted of the murders.
Jeremy has always claimed Sheila had gone on a rampage after her parents suggested her sons should be put into foster care.
He alleged she killed her parents and sons before turning the gun on herself and has appealed unsuccessfully several times.
He believes there has been a huge miscarriage of justice and so do a number of his supporters who have come up with theories that they claim prove his innocence.
One theory is that Sheila killed her family in a psychotic episode.
Some supporters of Bamber believe that his sister killed Nevill and June and her two twins as a result of her being a Paranoid Schizophrenic.
Due to her condition, some believe she was fearful of her family harming her.
They claim she has no support from medical professionals and her family were not offered information or advice on how to deal with her mental illness.
Another theory claims that there is no physical evidence linking Bamber to the killings.
At Jeremy’s 2002 appeal forensic scientists testified that none of Sheila’s DNA was present either inside or outside the moderator (gun silencer).
The court also found out there were possible contamination issues relating to DNA testing and the gun silencer- however at this appeal the point was lost.
It also came to light that Essex police referred to the evidence of the moderator under three different ID numbers in files – despite maintaining that there is only a single moderator associated with this case.
City of London Police told in their final report that it was an admin error, which the Criminal Cases Review Commission accepted.
Missing phone logs are another theory thought to prove Jeremy was not the killer.
Lost phone logs that were later uncovered back Bamber’s story that the 1985 Essex massacre was carried out by his sister Sheila, known as Bambi.
One of the logs, previously unseen, suggests Bamber’s father Nevill called police on the night of the massacre at White House Farm in Essex.
The note written on August 7, 1985, is titled “daughter gone berserk” and timed at 3.26am – 10 minutes BEFORE a second note records Bamber’s own distress call.
It states: “Mr Bamber, White House Farm, Tolleshunt d’Arcy – daughter Sheila Bamber, aged 26 years, has got hold of one of my guns.” The message adds that “Mr Bamber has a collection of shotguns and .410s” and includes the correct phone number for White House Farm.
It also records that patrol car CA7 was despatched to the scene at 3.35am, one minute before Bamber rang from his cottage in nearby Goldhanger village.
The message is strikingly similar to the scenario Bamber has consistently claimed his 61-year-old father described to him.
Bamber rang Chelmsford police station at 3.36am, according to a second log also obtained by the Mirror. He told an officer: “You’ve got to help me. My father’s just phoned me, he said, ‘Please come over, your sister has gone crazy and has got the gun’.” The log has small but significant differences to the other note, indicating it relates to a different call.
It refers to Sheila as a “sister” who had gone “crazy” with a gun. And it records that another car, CA5, was separately sent to the farmhouse – again indicating the logs refer to different calls.
