Cumbria shootings: Money troubles remain focus of investigations


Investigators were focusing on gun killer Derrick Bird’s money troubles today after it emerged that he feared being jailed for tax evasion.

The taxi driver may also have resented the fact that his twin brother – thought to be his first victim – was given £25,000 by their father before he died more than a decade ago.

Meanwhile, tributes were paid to Bird’s 12 murdered victims as Prime Minister David Cameron visited Cumbria to meet the emergency services and survivors of the massacre.

The gunman was being investigated by the Inland Revenue after being caught with a mystery £60,000 in his bank account, a friend said.

Detectives are investigating why he went on the rampage on Wednesday, shooting dead his brother David, the family solicitor and 10 others before taking his own life in remote woodland.

Mark Cooper, who has known Bird for 15 years, recalled: “He said, ’They have caught me with £60,000 in the bank, the tax people’. He just said, ’I’ll go to jail’.

I can understand that the bloke wouldn't fancy going to jail but was that any reason to murder innocent people?

I feel sorry for the Crossbow Cannibal - he is the innocent victim in all this. Just as he thought he may at last achieve the notoriety he craves than this idiot comes along and steals his thunder. He must be pissed at that!
