Development In Mark Lundy Double Murder

Development In Mark Lundy Double Murder

Tuesday 16th June 2009

The double murder of Christine and Amber Lundy has been described as a ‘How Dunnit’ rather than a ‘Who Dunnit’ because the forensic evidence seemed to put Mark Lundy at the murder scene.

Now Bryan Bruce, writer and host of new TV ONE crime programme, The Investigator believes he has solved the mystery of how Mark Lundy murdered his wife and only child.

Lundy's alibi was that he was in Wellington with a prostitute on the night of August 29, 2000. Part of his defence at trial was that he could not have committed the murders in Palmerston North and driven back to Wellington in the three-hour time slot available to him.

According to his cellphone records, Lundy was in Petone near Wellington at 5.43pm when he finished a call to his wife Christine and daughter Amber. The next call he made that night through a Petone cellphone site was at 8.28pm to a business partner of his Hawke's Bay wine-making venture.

"This would seem to suggest a window of time of less than three hours to drive to Palmerston North, commit the murders, clean himself up so he leaves no blood in the car, and drive back to Wellington. Frankly it's a nonsense - especially at rush hour," says Bruce.

Bryan Bruce has been researching the case and believes he did it by using the internet: "I spoke to a variety of forensic experts around the world who were all keen to help me solve the Lundy riddle."

Bruce will unveil his answer to the perplexing question of timing on the very first episode of ‘The Investigator’ tomorrow night, “when you hear my solution, you will be surprised by how simple it is."

"I can also tell you, that while Mark Lundy and his Defence team won't be happy with my new evidence, the Prosecution may not be happy with me either. What I've discovered could very well help Lundy with his attempt to get his case before the Privy Council. And we all know where that can lead!"

The Investigator screens on TV ONE tomorrow night at 9:30pm

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
