The Bain killings. An impartial observer's view.

Was it David Bain who killed his family or did Robin Bain kill four members of his family and the commit suicide?

First of all let me say that although I am trying to be impartial I honestly believe that it is far more likely that David Bain murdered his family than it is that Robin Bain murdered four members of his family and then committed suicide .

Is Robin Bain Guilty?

It appears that the conclusion from Judge Ian Binnie as to whether David Bain is innocent on the balance of probabilities has been leaked to the media. If Judge Binnie’s conclusion is that David Bain is innocent then by default this would mean that he has found that David’s father Robin was the killer of four of his family members.

According to Judge Binnie, Robin would now be the person that shot his wife Margaret his two daughters Laniet and Arawa and strangled and shot his 14 year old son Stephen.

Are the facts always as Karam would have us believe?

Here are some observations I have made after reading David and Goliath,Trial by Ambush,the Innocent booklet and listening to the Laws/Karam radio debate.

On page 343 of Trial by Ambush Karam writes "Doyle confirmed in his evidence that Dr Pryde strip-searched David". Doyle did no such thing.
Reed cross-examining Doyle at the retrial.
Q.He was subjected to very invasive tests of his body wasn't he?
A. He was examined by a doctor.
