NEW INVESTIGATION BY MET POLICE MURDER REVIEW TEAM INTO MURDER OF LEE BALKWELL

Post by Tony Bennett on 27.05.17 8:33

At last, at last, at long long last!

Nearly 15 years after Lee Balkwell was murdered between 12 midnight and 1am on Friday 18 July 2002...

=========================


ESSEX POLICE TIGHT-LIPPED AS MET POLICE CLAIMS NEW INVESTIGATION INTO LEE BALKWELL'S DEATH HAS BEEN REOPENED

Essex PoLice tight-lipped as Met claims investigation into Lee Balkwell's death has been reopened




Thursday, 25 May 2017  By [email=castlepoint@yellowad.co.uk?subject=Article: Essex Police tight-lipped as Met claims investigation into Lee Balkwell's death has been reopened]YA Reporter[/email] in Crime




  • JUSTICE: Les maintains that Lee's death was not accidental.

  • TRAGIC: Les Balkwell's Lee's father, by his son's graveside.

  • INVESTIGATION: Essex Police has reopened lines on inquiry into the death of Lee Balkwell.



ESSEX Police has reopened the investigation into the death of Lee Balkwell, according to the Metropolitan Police Service.

The Met has told the YA that Essex Police has requested its assistance with the investigation.

Mr Balkwell’s father said the case had been reopened following claims Essex Police had missed vital evidence on Lee’s body.
Essex Police has refused to comment on or answer any questions about the new investigation.

Lee Balkwell, 33, was found dead in a cement mixer at Baldwin Farm, Dennises Lane, Upminster, in July 2002.

Essex Police concluded that Mr Balkwell’s death was ’accidental’ but his father Les has always believed his son was murdered.

In early 2015 – almost 13 years after Lee’s death – the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) gave the first official indication that the authorities now agreed with Les Balkwell.

The Government body ruled that Lee has been ’the blameless victim of a violent crime’ and authorised a pay-out to his family.

Tony Bennett, a solicitor representing Les Balkwell, claimed the fresh investigation had been prompted by new observations from a private investigator, David McKelvey.

Mr McKelvey, from private investigation firm TM-Eye, was re-examining the evidence on behalf of Les Balkwell.

Mr Bennett claimed Mr McKelvey’s conclusions had left Essex Police with ’no alternative but to ask the help of the Met’.

Mr Bennett claimed: “The new investigation, which is likely to be led by the Met, was forced upon them by the new and significant forensic evidence that suggests Lee was murdered.”

The Met has told the YA: “We can confirm the MPS has received a request for assistance from Essex Police in connection with the death of Lee Balkwell.

“At this very early stage the matter is being assessed by detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Review Group.”

Essex Police refused to comment on the new investigation other than to say that it acknowledged the Met’s statement.

It refused to answer any questions posed by the YA, including why it had reopened the case, when it had done so or whether the force now agreed with the CICA’s conclusion that Lee died as a result of a violent crime.

It also refused to answer questions about whether it was working with TM-Eye on the investigation or why it felt the need to involve the Met, rather than conducting the investigation by itself.

A spokesperson for the force said: “In relation to your questions: We are aware of the Met’s statement and have nothing to add at this time.”

Excellent work Tony for all that you've done, and continue to do, to help Les get to the truth about really happened to his son!

Quite extraordinary that you can succeed with this case whilst working so hard on the Madeleine case and the Stuart Lubbock case at the same time.

Well done TB.

Does the photo above show that they are exhuming the body or is it an old photo?

The third picture shows a tent over the grave of Lee Balkwell in Upminster cemetery, Essex, at the time his body was exhumed in March 2013 as part of a flawed and corrupt Kent Police review.

It was in effect a second post-mortem, conducted by Dr Benjamin Swift, who by the way made a number of mistakes in his reports.

Fantastic news, Tony. What a brain you have. You deal with so many issues at any one time, often proving that you were right from the start. Not bad for a "batty old man" hey?

Keep up the good work, Tony, as the world is extremely short on people of your calibre and determination.  You must scare the life out of those the other end of the moral spectrum.

You only have to look at Andrew's tweets to see how personally bothered he is by Tony and his efforts to investigate Maddie aswell as Stuart and Lee.

https://twitter.com/fredthefish10/with_replies

https://twitter.com/fredthefish10

Andrew, from the MMM forum, overlooks Tony's incredible achievements in the Balkwell and Lubbock case to phone him and his wife in the middle of the night to leave death threats on his answerphone, simply because he doesn't agree with Tony's theories.

Andrew calls Tony a "loon", amongst other things - but is a "loon" really capable of such success for the families of murdered children?

If Andrew's child was murdered, God forbid, wouldn't he want someone of Tony's calibre to fight for justice which has taken him ten years so far, in the case of Lee Balkwell, fighting against police corruption to finally get the case reopened?

Tony wants justice for Maddie McCann, just as he wants justice for Stuart and Lee, and Andrew is fighting him tooth and nail on the MMM forum, with the protection of the admin and moderator, and has now taken his vendetta/obsession on to twitter in order to discredit him.

I know who I support 100% and that person is, and has been for the past 10 years: Mr Tony Bennett the truthseeker. roses

This new - and I hope final - breakthrough in the Lee Balkwell case was very much the result of the recent involvement of this man: Dave McKelvey:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35651565 

The frequent media reports of Les Balkwell's struggle for justice eventually caught his attention, and he began his own private investigation.

He is one of the honest, dedicated detectives who, as a DCI in the Met, stumbled, in his detective work, on a major criminal network which was being supported by corrupt senior Met Police officers who were being paid by the top criminals in south-east England.

When he made an arrest of a man deeply involved in this corrupt network, all hell broke loose - he was the subject of a false, trumped-up charge by senior Met Police officers and was subsequently hounded out of the Met.

He now runs a private investigations agency called TM-EYE.

Without his determined investigation and advocacy, this new breakthrough would not have been achieved.

Sorry, who's the loon here??  :baffled:

Balkwell, Lubbock,

No heroics, no private investigation, just looking carefully at the evidence and asking penetrating questions.


No wonder the McCanns are frightened.

Here's a typical pro-McCann response. He totally disregards Tony's achievements about spending ten years getting to the TRUTH about these murdered people, only for Michael Walker to fixate on money, which is exactly what the McCanns have done in Madeleine's case.

Talk about irony.

It took the McCanns eight years to lose the libel battle with Gonçalo Amaral about a hurtful book.

It's taken ten years for Tony to fight through police corruption at the highest levels to get justice for a murdered man.

Let us hope that Mr Tony Bennett is vindicated and all funds paid from Mr Bennett;s Pension be returned from Carter Ruck,via Kate and Gerry McCann,as absolute minimum of recompense?
Even Carter Rucks legal Team had to admit to the Court,that it was based on Mr And Mrs McCann,theory,thesis of the Abduction of their Daughter Madeleine McCann,Isn't that proscribed as"Hearsay"?
