Kahui did it

The Coroner has said that on the balance of probabilities that his belief is Chris Kahui is the one responsible for the death of Chris and Cru Kahui. Not only that he calls Chris Kahui a liar:

Evans finds that Chris Kahui was alone with his three-month-old sons for at least three minutes on the day they suffered their fatal injuries in 2006.

“The [coroners] court is satisfied . . . that the traumatic brain injuries suffered by Chris and Cru Kahui were incurred by them . . . whilst they were in the sole custody, care and control of their father,” he says.

His report also says: “The fact that there was a mixture of both old and fresh injuries affecting the twins is deeply disturbing and shows that the household environment in which they were being brought up was unsafe.”

The babies had been left alone with Chris Kahui, 21, by their mother, Macsyna King, on June 12, 2006, when she went to see her sister.

At Chris Kahui’s trial, it was suggested that Macsyna King could have been the one who injured the twins, but Evans concludes there is not “a skerrick of evidence” implicating her.

“Apart from being completely without evidential support, the theory is implausible,” he says.
