On the night of August 6th, 1985 in Essex, England, a shocking attack left five members – and three generations – of a family brutally murdered. At first, the police thought they were dealing with an open-and-shut case of murder-suicide, suspecting that it was Sheila Caffell – diagnosed with schizophrenia – who had shot her adoptive parents and her twin sons before turning the gun on herself. As one detective set out to prove, however, certain elements of that narrative that didn’t add up – and the spotlight turned onto Sheila’s brother, Jeremy Bamber.
In the new companion podcast to the HBO Max miniseries The Murders at White House Farm, host Lauren Bright Pacheco chats with the show’s creators, historical experts, and individuals affected by the White House Farm murders in real life.
