Jeremy Bamber makes freedom bid after lawyers submit 10 new pieces of evidence 37 years after White House Farm killings | The Sun

JEREMY Bamber is making a bid for freedom 37 years after he slaughtered his family.

Lawyers for the White House Farm killer have submitted ten pieces of evidence they claim could overturn his conviction.

Bamber shot dead five members of his family including his six-year-old twin nephews in a cold-blooded massacre in Tolshunt D’arcy, Essex.

The monster claims schizophrenic sister Sheila had killed her mum, dad and her kids before turning the gun on herself in the 1985 bloodbath.

His lawyers have sent the dossier to the Criminal Cases Review Commission claiming the fresh evidences raises questions over a key detail in the killings, the Mail on Sunday reports.

They say Essex Police tampered with evidence and claim burns on dad Nevill's back were not caused by the butt of the rifle as the jury were told during Bamber's trial.

His lawyers insist the marks were actually caused by the AGA in the kitchen – blowing apart the idea Bamber tortured his family before murdering them.

They argue this suggestion helped secure Bamber's conviction.

Speaking to the newspaper from HMP Wakefield, Bamber, now 61, said: "After 36 years it can now be proven with absolute certainty that I did not burn my dad with the rifle barrel or the rifle's sound moderator, as my trial jury were misled into believing."

On August 7, 1985, Bamber went from room-to-room blasting his family members.

He battered his dad Nevill, 69, and shot him eight times in the downstairs of the remote home.

Police later found his mum June and sister Sheila Caffell's bodies in the master bedroom, with the scene made to look like a murder suicide by sick Bamber.

Sheila's six-year-old twins Nicholas and Daniel were found dead in their beds – apparently asleep at the time they were gunned down.

Police, who were alerted to the horror by Bamber, discovered the depraved killer had pumped 25 bullets into the victims – mostly at close range.

Bamber gave chilling interviews to police as he brazenly started to flog his parent's possessions and even had their beloved dog put to sleep.

He was finally rumbled when girlfriend Julie later told cops he had confessed to the killings.

Forensics then realised the rifle used in the murders was too long for Sheila to use on herself so they focused their attention on Bamber instead.

Bamber was handed a full life sentence in 1986 – meaning he will never be released from prison.

But he has made several attempts to get his sentence overturned – claiming he has "strong" alibi evidence that proves he didn't commit the murders.

The CCRC confirmed a review is ongoing, while Essex Police said multiple appeals have "never found anything other than Bamber is the person responsible".
