Clydach killer David Morris, who killed three generations of the same family, dies in prison He and his family have been protesting his innocence. The prison spokesman confirmed that he died at HMP Long Lartin on Friday. David Morris, convicted of the Kleidaqi murder, has been confirmed to have died in prison.
Morris murdered three generations of the same family on Kelvin Road in Clydach in the Swansea Valley in 1999.
She was imprisoned for 22 years for the murder of Mandy Ball, hers two young daughters of hers Katie (10 years) and Emily (8 years) and her mother Doris Dawson (80 years). He is being held at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire.
The prison service spokesman said: “HMP Long Lartin inmate David Morris died on August 20. The prison and probation inspector reportedly died.” The cause of death is now said to have been a matter for the coroner.
This brutal murder triggered one of the largest homicide investigations in the history of the Wales Police. The investigation resulted in two convictions for Morris here: the first time in 2002 at Swansea Criminal Court, where the sentence was overturned on appeal, and then after a new trial at Newport Criminal Court in 2006.
In 2018, the Criminal Cases Review Board rejected the proposal to bring her case to the Court of Appeal.
But Morris and his family have always insisted that they are innocent, even though Ms. Bower’s ex-husband said he agreed with the judgment.
They asked the police and CPS to review possible new evidence. Some of this evidence appeared in a recent BBC documentary with potential new witnesses.
In January this year, the South Wales Police took the initiative to review a new claim filed by Attorney Morris. The South Wales Police reiterated their confidence in Morris’s conviction, but stated that they will appoint an independent investigator and an independent forensic scientist to oversee the forensic review of a specific field proposed by Morris’s legal representative.
However, the family’s efforts suffered a setback last month. After consulting with the Crown Prosecutor’s Office on possible new evidence, it was “determined that the evidence will not weaken Morris’s conviction.”
However, the investigation into the forensic issues questioned in the BBC crime documentary has yet to be completed.
After making this decision, Jeanine Morris, one of David Morris’s two daughters, said, “This is another big blow to the father’s case. As a family, we just don’t get it.”
She said evidence that an unidentified person was found by a taxi driver near the crime scene, she said. She said that on the night of the murder, a total of three witnesses placed others near the crime scene.
“We have never met them. We don’t want to see each other because we want to make things right. These witnesses have nothing to do with anyone in the case. They have absolutely no reason to lie. I can’t express how angry and frustrated we are right now.” This is very frustrating, but we will not turn our back on it, “he said.
