ON This Day In Photos – October 28 1984: Jeremy Bamber is sentenced to five life terms for killing five members of his family – his step-parents, sister and her two six-year-old sons – at White House Farm in Tolleshunt D’Arcy, Essex. The judge Mr Justice Drake called Bamber “warped and evil beyond belief”. The judge noted:
Bamber tried to frame his sister, who suffered from mild schizophrenia and had not been taking her medication. Bamber placed the gun on her chest to imply she had committed suicide after killing. Why did he do it? He was set to inherit £436,000. To this day he maintains his innocence. You can read about the case and his appeal here and here.
