How the flying fuck did this get through?
Maybe reading past the headlines would help...
He made a complaint based on his memory of seeing it as a 3 year old.
The photos and documents of the original investigation showed that the
head injuries were inconsistent with falling out of bed and matched that
of the fireplace and also showed that multiple impacts took place.
"The Crown Prosecution Service said it had not been able to exhume
Paul's body as burial records had been lost, with the case relying on
the documents prepared for his inquest at the time."
"Home Office pathologist Mark Egan demonstrated how the toddler could
have died by swinging a doll by the ankles and banging its head on the
surface of the witness box, causing some of the 10 men and two women of
the jury to weep."
"He also said he believed it would have taken separate blows to cause
the "z-shaped" skull fracture on the side of Paul's head."
So not "Convicted on historic evidence of a 3 year olds memory from
1968" but instead convicted on scientific evidence and a proper forensic
investigation of the evidence gathered at the time.
