Despite the repeated tests of technicians, explanations regarding water pressure and pipe corrosion and David Bain's own testimony, Karam maintains that it was possible for the washing machine cycle to have finished in time from when David Bain was supposed to have started it (according the Karam's scenario), sometime after 6.45 and when the police arrived not long before 7.30. For more detail go here.
In the Karam Laws debate held in August 2010, Joe Karam emphatically states that the human bladder when full contains 3-4 litres of fluid. He says this to support his opinion that 400ml of fluid in the bladder is so small as to be unnoticeable. Medical journals suggest that anything from 200 to 400ml is sufficient for a person to start to be ready to relieve themself. More about this here including audio of the incident.
On page 114 in Joe Karam's book David and Goliath there is this misinformation! [Quote] David was prematurely arrested, imagine the difference in police positioning had they already known on the Friday morning that these glasses were previously David's mothers and "OF NO USE TO HIM" [end quote]
This is completely contrary to what David himself admitted' he said that he used the old pair of his Mother’s glasses when his were not available for going to lectures and watching TV.
Karam Claimed that Laniet was going to tell all at the weekend but the Murders happened on the Monday
Karam's claim that Robin Bain killed his family (barring David) because Laniet was going to reveal all about their supposed relationship at the weekend has one major flaw: The murders occurred on Monday morning. If Laniet was going to reveal all at the weekend, then surely she would do this on Saturday or Sunday and the matter would not be still dealt with by the Monday morning. As we already know, David Bain at no stage testified that he believed that his father had an incestuous relationship with Laniet or even suggested that it was possible.
From the booklet "Innocent!".
Gone are the bloody fingerprints on the rifle.They were made in animal blood and put there sometime before the killings.
Gone is the proposition that he turned on the computer and wrote the message-he was not home when the computer was activated.
Gone is the incriminating lens found beside Stephen's body as evidenced by Detective Weir's testimony under oath and photo 62.There is no lens in the photo and Weir has now admitted he was wrong and misled the jury.
In his booklet "Innocent!",Karam lists six pieces of evidence as gone.
1.Gone are the bloody fingerprints on the rifle.They were made in animal blood and put there sometime before the killings.
2.Gone is the proposition that he turned the computer on and wrote the message -he was not home when the computer was activated.
3.Gone is the incriminating lens found beside Stephen's body as evidenced by Detective Weir's testimony under oath and photo 62.There is no lens in the photo and Weir has now admitted he was wrong and misled the jury.
In the booklet "Innocent" under the heading "Matters not in Dispute"Karam writes
David Bain did do his paper-round that morning in normal fashion,and he arrived home at his gate no earlier than 6.45 am.
Joe Karam made much mileage and probably destroyed Milton Weir's police career by claiming that the lens that Milton Weir claimed he could see in a photograph of the crime scene in Stephen's bedroom was a specular effect. Karam's determination was so great that he had Milton himself conceding he must have made a mistake.
Vital Evidence Concerning Laniet's Relationship with her Father which was omitted from the First Trial
It is true that the hearsay evidence regarding Laniet's alleged relationship with her father was omitted from the first trial, but there is more to the story than what Karam makes out.
In Joe Karam's Book David and Goliath on page 203 Karam says: "I have no doubt that if the blood staining on Robin's clothing had been analysed for blood grouping, it would have been found to be the blood of deceased members of his family."
After Karam made these claims in his book, the blood on Robin Bains clothes was tested, the results below.
Forensic scientist Dr Sally-Ann Harbison said of the more than 20 samples taken from Robin Bain's bloodstained clothing the only full results were of his own DNA.
