Did anyone watch this programme on the So-Called BBC last night? It was a confusing mess.
The gist of it was that Michael Stone, a man with psychological issues, was sent down under dodgy evidence for murdering a Kent family with a hammer, but Levi Bellfield (Millie Dowler murderer) is likely believed to be the real murderer. Some suggestions that the Police have been inept - no surprise.
There is allegedly some DNA left on a towel that was used to strangle the family, which doesn't belong to Stone but another man. The production team (or someone otherwise involved with the case) wrote to Bellfield to request his DNA to remove him from their investigations; he initially complied but then went quiet. Hmmm..
I have been reading about it today and cannot fathom why the police/CPS cannot apparently forcefully obtain the DNA from a convicted murderer - presumably they have it already anyway? I don't know the ins-and-outs of the justice system, but surely they have his DNA and can rule him out.
This is why I don't watch documentaries much now, you waste an hour of your life when they don't answer any of the questions they pose, and you can just read up on it on Wikipedia in 2 minutes.
