In a major new development David Asbury, the man convicted of the murder of Marion Ross and later released when the fingerprint evidence against him was found to be ‘unreliable’, is suing the four experts responsible for the fingerprint identifications.
As followers of the SCRO saga will know TWO fingerprints identified by the SCRO during the course of the Marion Ross murder investigation have long been dismissed by the world‘s fingerprint experts. That of Shirley McKie and the print of Marion Ross allegedly found on a biscuit tin recovered by the police from Asbury’s house.
It was the Ross print that clinched Asbury’s conviction tying the victim to his home.
I suspect that the cat is about to be released from the bag and that pressure is going to grow for an independent enquiry into all the circumstances surrounding the Marion Ross investigation.
