Opinion: It was recently reported that David Bain's groomsman was convictered killer Paul Wilson, who served 15 years for raping and murdering a former girlfriend in 1994, about a month before the Bain murders. Wilson stood beside Bain at the alter while he got married. The other two groomsmen were Karam's two sons, with Matthew acting as best man. Karam is quoted as saying: "They sort of naturally became ... very close friends.
I am firmly in the camp that David is guilty. I believe David Bain and David Bain alone murdered his entire family on June 20th 1994. My previous blog from 2010 “The Mountain vs The Molehill” outlines all the evidence David cannot account for, which also exculpates his father Robin from any involvement. Plus I doubt I would be posting here if I believed anything else.
Apparently one piece of circumstantial evidence can prove a murder case beyond doubt. Michael Reed claims that the alleged residue marks on Robin's thumb as seen in the picture published on the 3rd Degree documentary slamdunk prove that Robin committed the murders because he loaded the magazines.
Why stop there?
Opinion: This is a purely psychological analysis, based on a concept of what an educated and adjusted person in our society would do when faced with an allegedly false accusation of such grand scale as that which faced David Bain.
Opinion: Someone has noticed marks on Robin's thumb which are consistent with loading the magazine on the rifle. If we hypothesise that these marks are not innocent and instead indicate that Robin loaded the rifle and therefore is responsible for the Bain murders, then we also have to interpret other items of evidence in the same incriminating manner. Some examples:
Opinion: The media is suddenly exploding with the news of new evidence in the Bain case. This is not really new evidence but an observation made about old evidence.
