    What annoyed me about this case was the fact Lundy wasn’t the only suspect. Apparently there were others we didn’t hear about.

    I still think Lundy is guilty, as is Scott Watson in the sounds murder, but in Lundies case I wouldn’t have come to the guilty conclusion as quickly had I know about the other suspects.

      how could there be other suspects,if we didn’t hear about them!!

        WE didn’t, just Corky.

        I am not 100% convinced about Scott Watson. He seems to be a toerag, but that doesn’t mean that he’s a murderer.

          Someone claimed in 2013 that there were 60 suspects; the man who tried to clear Mark Lundy’s name.

          That seems far too many suspects.

            Bryan Bruce produces factual documentaries that the right don’t want to know..about…like this..one.

          Only suspect with a motive though. There are very few women/children murdered where the father or stepfather isn’t involved.

            Yes, true.

              The odds against anyone in NZ being murdered by a stranger are very high. It does happen, but people are far more likely to be killed by someone they know.

              How many times has someone sobbed into the television camera that they just want X back or to know what happened to them ? And then we’d hear that they have been convicted of killing X.

            The Bain family was not murdered by the father.

    I await the day when there’d be reality TV show – 7.00pm would seem to be a good slot -where the police present “Other Suspects.”
    They will showcase current enquiries and list all the suspects. They can go over historic cases and tell us all about others who were suspsects and why. All for the purpose of us not getting to be annoryed about other suspects we didn’t get to hear about. Jeez!

      You obviously wouldn’t have a clue as to gathering evidence and obtaining an overview.
      Understanding why police went after other suspects can alter a case and the perceptions of the public.

    The police need to take major blame for this farce – during the original trial they where so obviously wrong in their timeline of the murder he should have been let off. In the 2nd trial they completely changed that timeline so it made sense.

      his over acting at the funeral…did him in…had motive and opportunity.

        Yup. Shocker. I think everybody who saw that (but him) went – “Christ! Worse than anyone on Shortland Street. He did it !”

          Especially when we heard that as soon as the camera was turned off, so were the tears and collapsing.

          I could imagine someone losing it at the funeral of their murdered wife and child, so didn’t automatically think that he was overdoing it….but there seemed no reason why anyone else would have done it.

          I am very dubious about the idea that 60 people were considered to be likely suspects. Who has 60 people who might want to kill them ?

        He is guilty for sure – but so bad were the prosecution at the first trial he shouldn’t have been convicted. All that dressing up as a woman bullshit & the fact they said he killed them soon after they had Mcdonalds for dinner (when it was obvious he killed them much later) was a farce.

        If the police had used their brains and got it right first time around we wouldn’t have had all the unnecessary drawn-out follow up.

          the Police’s best results always come from public information.
          Most homicide cases they struggle with.
