But really I will not be surprised if a member of Ben's family was involved in his accidental death ... but wonder how they kept it from the rest of the family
for so long. If that is the case then it must have been someone very immature imo.

Personally, I think it's rather telling that Grandpa Eddie has been omitted from all the sofa business for a long time now.


Yes it's just the 3 girls - all so very alike to look at. A very distinctive look about them. They all appear to be telling the truth as they know it - it cant be just brilliant acting.
But are the men falling apart? So intrigued.

From this link also.

South Yorkshire Police believe 21-month-old Ben was crushed accidentally by digger driver Konstantinos “Dino” Barkas and his body hidden elsewhere.

But DI Cousins only says.

Det Insp Jon Cousins, who led the investigation, said: “It is my professional belief that Ben Needham died as a result of an accident near to the farmhouse in Iraklis where he was last seen playing.”

http://www.itv.com/news/calendar/2017-01-20/son-of-greek-digger-driver-my-father-did-not-kill-ben-needham/

The son of the digger driver implicated over the death of Ben Needham on Kos says there is "no evidence" his father killed the Sheffield toddler and covered it up.

In his first television interview with Greek media Valantis Barkas also claimed South Yorkshire Police had apologised for the "trouble" his family had been put through after the allegations about his father, Konstantinos, became public.

Ben, who was 21 months old, went missing in July 1991 after being taken to a remote farmhouse on Kos where his grandfather, Eddie, was carrying out renovations.

But it wasn't until last year that detectives were given Konstantinos Barkas's name following a fresh appeal on the Greek island.

It was claimed the digger driver, who died in 2015, had accidentally killed Ben on the day the 21-month-old went missing in July 1991 before burying his body.

The information led to excavations on the island, which failed to uncover a body but led to the discovery of a toy car he was playing with on the day he vanished.

South Yorkshire Police returned from Kos saying it was their "professional belief" Ben had been killed.

But speaking to Athens-based programme Tatiana Live Valantis Barkas denied his father had anything to do with it.
We wonder who made this story up. He was very careful while working and never ever caused an accident. No one ever blamed him on Ben's case. He was only accused after he died, so he couldn't defend himself. It's so unfair for him and my family. There's no proof and no one believes it.

– VALANTIS BARKAS
Mr Barkas said his father believed Ben had been abducted and would never have covered up such a crime.

"I have a child I can understand her pain, my father would never do that, he was an honest man."

He said the family had received threats after his father was connected with the case.

He said: "The police officer in charge of the investigation in Kos came to me and apologised for all the trouble my family went through. I told him he can't just fix all this damage with an apology. I want to help but they shouldn't have given out my dead father's name."

South Yorkshire Police have maintained their position.

Det Insp Jon Cousins, who led the excavation in Kos, said: “Based on those facts and the information I have to date, it is still my professional belief that Ben died as a result of a tragic incident at the farmhouse involving heavy machinery."

The fact that we did not have a direct result during the most recent visit to Kos, does not preclude the facts that we know to be true. Primacy for the investigation lies with the Greek authorities and South Yorkshire Police remain committed to assisting them in any ongoing enquiries they may have.

Snipped from above:

In the latest appeal released by Ben's family, they write in the little lad's voice as if he is talking from beyond the grave.

It says: "My name is Ben Needham. I disappeared 24th July 1991, I was 21 months old when I was involved in an accident on Kos Island, Greece.

"My family are still trying to find me so they can take me home. They need me, I need them, please tell someone where I am."

New appeal for help to find missing Ben Needham
Ben Needham

09:27Monday 13 March 2017

The new appeal, written as though it is from Ben himself, has been posted on the 'Help Find Ben Needham' Facebook page.

Posted with a picture of Ben, who was 21 months old when he vanished on the Greek island of Kos, in 1991, the appeal reads: “My name is Ben Needham. I disappeared on 24th July 1991.

“I was 21 months old when I was involved in an accident on Kos Island, Greece.

“My family are still trying to find me so they can take me home.

“They need me. I need them. Please tell someone where I am.”

Detectives believe Ben was killed in an accident with a digger close to the farmhouse his grandfather was renovating on the day the toddler vanished.

Land around the farmhouse has been excavated but his remains have never been found.

Posting on Facebook, Ben's family said: "Help us bring Ben home where he belongs. Ben needs to be bought home."

The Mystery of Ben Needham

Post  hesla on Mon 24 Jul 2017, 7:58 am

BBC Scotland 6am news this morning are reporting that a university in Aberdeen is testing items connected to Ben Needham found near the farmhouse with traces of blood on them. They are looking at obtaining DNA results. The theory is being put out there again that he died as a result of an accident with heavy machinery. Is this going to be official closure? Will there be a knock on effect to another case. How many matching markers will be needed to be conclusive in this instance?
