Overview: 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 new edition includes a short Postcript of new evidence generated by the original book, which casts even further doubt on the safety of the conviction of Dai Morris.
