Description

Is Dai Morris a brutal murderer or the victim of a terrible miscarriage of justice? Author and former solicitor John Morris investigates the Clydach murders, which occurred in 1999, for which Dai Morris was convicted in 2006. In a case which shocked the country Mandy Power, her bed-ridden mother and her two young daughters were battered to death. The crime sparked a huge investigation yet the police made little progress. This widely researched book contends that Morris, convicted for the murders in 2006, is a scapegoat, an innocent man against whom justice was miscarried. No forensic evidence or DNA connected him to the crime; he was convicted because he lacked of a solid alibi, because his gold chain was found in Power’s house and because, as a man with a criminal record, he initially lied to the police. Morris’s case is to be heard in the Court of Appeal, probably in 2018, in the light of new evidence, including DNA testing and falsification of police documents. South Wales Police was notorious in the period 1980 to 2010 for false convictions on fabricated evidence. Significantly, previous suspects for the Clydach murders include former police officers, one of whom was having a lesbian affair with Mandy Power. There is every possibility that Dai Morris has suffered a miscarriage of justice. The author studied the police files and court papers, and discussed the case with key witnesses and experts. He is convinced that Morris is the victim of a conspiracy to falsely convict. The brutal murder of an entire family is a horrible thing but to compound it with an unsafe conviction shows a disrespect to the victims, to their relatives, to the family of Dai Morris and to the law.

    This book is well worth a read, even better if you know about it. Good insight to the investigation, finished the book with different unanswered questions! Who did it?!

    A brilliant book that makes the reader wonder is actually meant by the term "beyond reasonable doubt". Highly recommend.

    I totally agree with the author that Dai Has been set up by The police. As set out in this book all DNA point to the Lewis family. South Wales Police should be investigated about this case. We all have pasts that aren't always what we want but that doesn't make us murders. Dai was painted with tarred brushes while the Lewis family were painted honest and reliable with out any mention of their life discrepancies. If he had accidentally left his necklace after the murders then his DNA would still be on it but in fact it was forensically cleaned like the rest of the house so why would he have left it there after cleaning it surely he would have put it safe not left in blood with no DNA. This is a terrible crime that has been committed and I feel sick to the pit of my stomach that the police officers are allowed to get away with such a coverup and let the real killer and associates walk away freely to lead their normal lives while this man and his family are still going through hell and back. I also feel for the family of the victims and feel that if they could find the courage needed to read this book maybe they would feel the same way that I do. Justice had NOT prevailed . Tracey Sunni
