Levi Bellfield 'has CONFESSED to 1996 hammer murders of Lin and Megan Russell': Lawyers for man convicted of crimes say Milly Dowler's killer told a prisoner details 'that would only be known by the culprit'

Serial killer Levi Bellfield has allegedly confessed to murdering Lin Russell and her daughter Megan in 1996. 
Michael Stone, now 57, is serving three life sentences with a minimum of 25 years in prison.  
Lin Russell and her six-year-old daughter Megan were bludgeoned to death 20 years ago in a murder that shocked the nation.
Lin's elder daughter Josie, nine, miraculously survived the frenzied attack, in which even the family dog, Lucy, was slaughtered.  
Stone was found guilty in 2001 largely on the strength of a disputed cell confession. 
He has fought a protracted legal battle to clear his name, and has always maintained his innocence.   
Lawyers for Stone, today said they have new evidence of his innocence, including a 'very detailed confession' to the killings from Milly Dowler's killer Levi Bellfield.
Bellfield is alleged to have confessed in length and in detail to a fellow prisoner whom he had grown to trust.
Stone's solicitor Paul Bacon told a press conference in London: 'We have seen evidence of a full confession by Levi Bellfield that he has admitted the Russell murders and in the confession Bellfield describes how he came across Lin Russell and her two children.
'How he attacked them with a hammer and he explains his motivation for the killing. The confession is detailed and has a number of facts that are not in the public domain.


'We now have an independent witness who has seen Levi Bellfield close to the scene of the murders at about the time of they were committed and importantly we have identified forensic material from the scene of the murders which corroborates the confession made by Levi Bellfield.
'The Russell murders by Levi Bellfield fits perfectly with his modus operandi. He is a man known to attack and murder women. His weapon of choice is a hammer.

Timothy Evans confessed to the Christie murders and swung.   He was clearly innocent.   So how does one prove that a confession is genuine?

'...In July 1997, police arrested and charged 37 year-old Michael Stone with the crimes after a tip-off resulting from a reconstruction on the Crimewatch television programme.[10] Stone pleaded not guilty at his original trial in 1998, but was convicted based on the testimony from a witness who claimed that Stone had confessed to him while in prison.[11] The conviction hinged on witness testimony because there was no forensic evidence linking Stone to the crime..'


'...Stone had asked the CCRC to re-examine a 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) long boot lace which had been dropped at the scene of the crime by the murderer.[citation needed] It had DNA from a number of males which could not be linked to Stone. The prosecution at trial had argued that the DNA must have belonged to one of Stone's friends; however, the lace proved to be missing and so the CCRC were not able to re-examine it using modern DNA techniques. They did re-examine the ends of a swimming towel which had belonged to the victims and which had been torn into six strips by the perpetrator. Male DNA readings were detected at both ends of the strips, but the DNA once again did not belong to Stone,..'

A 'confession' is not proof of guilt... on its own it is not evidence... much more conclusive evidence must be provided to secure conviction.


Stone was convicted on the testimony of a prisoner who claimed he had heard Stone admit he had done it.


That should not have been considered as credible evidence either.


Especially as there was plenty of DNA of another man found at scene, who must have been the killer, but no DNA of Stone anywhere on anything there!


He has been stitched up!!!

Bellfield is also denying this so called 'overheard' confession of his.

Idea

Several years ago,  I read that in most western jurisdictions that still have the death penalty,  between 3 and 5% of those inmates on death row are not guilty of the crimes with which they have actually been convicted...

'It is better that ten guilty persons escape,  than that one innocent suffer.'
William Blackstone
