Fingernails

Missing Fingernail of Sheila Caffell - found by Ann Eaton at the scene

They said that Sheila was injury free, and that her fingernails were well manicured, and free from damage -but this is not what inquiries, which have been made on Jeremy's behalf, by "Kodak man" (Mr Sutherst), who has enlarged photographs taken during autopsy showing Sheila's hands, fingers and fingernails...

New evidence obtained by Mr Sutherst, shows Sheila's fingernails to be damaged, and one is missing altogether...

Jeremy recently told me that Ann Eaton found one of Sheila's fingernails at the scene, which is very interesting, since the person who scratched and gouged Ralph Bambers right forearm, may have broken a fingernail or pulled it off when they inflicted this injury to him...

Where was loose fingernail belonging to Shela found at the scene, by Ann Eaton, and when?

I am trying to ascertain where this loose fingernail was found or recovered from, since when this is established it may help to identify the location inside the farmhouse, when Sheila scratched and gouged Ralph's arm...

Mike - with reference to:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:GBoXf__1A4QJ:www.studiolegaleinternazionale.com/downloads/bamber/BAMBERCCRC_addendum_06_06_2004.doc+bamber+2002+appeal&cd=57&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk
[2004]

It says that the person who attacked Ralph Bamber had finger nails at least 5mm-6mm long, and had the finger nails been shorter they could not have inflicted the wounds on the right arm and a similar wound on the arm of June Bamber.

It mentions that the post mortem photograph of June Bamber's arm shows one laceration consistent with a single finger nail indentation into the skin.

Could this be how/where Sheila lost her nail?

Congratulations for being so dedicated and informative by the way!

I had always presumed that the twins were the first to be shot. Was there any possibility that they were sedated in some way? Also, how did Julie Mugford know the extent of Ralph's injuries, and the fact that he had struggled with his assailant? Sorry, Mike, if this is old ground for you to cover.

Shonapugs:- If Ralph and Sheila struggled at all in the kitchen, at a time when Sheila was reloading the gun with bullets, it would appear that at least three additional bullets, perhaps four, could have been discharged from the rifle by that stage, and this could be an indication that June and the children were all shot during the first emptying of the guns ammunition, and if this turns out to be the case, then of course, by the time of any purported struggle, the children could already have been killed because each wound inflicted upon the children was a fatal one...

Julie Mugford knew the extent of Ralph's injuries, because she was the one who volunteered to attend the mortuary, to identify the bodies of the five victims, and received information at that time about the extent of the injuries from a police officer who accompanied her to carry out these duties..

I know that someone had to do it, but Julie Mugford actually volunteered to identify the bodies? Even the children's? Good grief, am I the only one to find that shocking?
