David Tamihere, one of New Zealand’s most notorious convicted killers, still maintains he did not murder two Swedish backpackers and wants a retrial. …
Tamihere denied meeting the tourists or any involvement in their disappearance, although he did admit stealing their car.
Yes, it was someone else who killed them. Wait, I’ve got it – it was Robin Bain!
He tells Metro magazine that he is living a quiet life, spending time with his partner, Kristine, and his adult sons, but wants a new trial and compensation.
“It’s about the principle.
About the principle? And compensation!
Having said that the Police did botch up parts of the case. But I would be very surprised if David Tamihere was not responsible for the killings. His criminal record is appalling with the killing in 1972 of 23 year old Mary Barcham, plus various assaults and sexual assaults. There is some speculation he did not act alone though.
