For the fourth episode of the companion podcast to HBO Max’s The Murders At White House Farm, host Lauren Bright Pacheco talks once more to Carol Ann Lee, the author of the highly-researched book about that fatal night upon which the series is based. This time, Carol exposes the many missteps taken by the police in the way they approached and handled the investigation of the murders. From the moment officers arrived on the scene of the crime that night, numerous mistakes were made. She explains how, as the investigation continued under the guidance of DCI Taff Jones, he refused to consider the possibility that what happened was anything other than a straightforward case of murder-suicide. Carol explains how those flaws in the police investigation were the result of Taff Jones’ steadfast belief that Sheila Caffell had killed her parents and twin sons before turning the gun on herself, and how that shaped the way the entire investigation was conducted, leading to usual police protocol being repeatedly breached. She also discusses how the equally stubborn mindset of DS Stan Jones — and his doubts about the likelihood of that initial murder-suicide narrative — ultimately helped alter the course of the police investigation.
