I was jailed for 12 years over murder I didn’t commit – my son doesn’t want to know me & real killers are still at large
The Sun says IT is 22 years since Raphael Rowe was cleared of a murder he didn’t commit, but even today the scars are still visible.
The 54-year-old – one of the so-called M25 Three – says the miscarriage of justice ruined his relationship with his eldest son, who still won’t speak to him and is “traumatised” by his time inside.
Raphael explains: “In prison I kept a diary for him to understand I still loved him and I hoped to be able to present that to him one day, but that had never happened.
“Sadly, that relationship hasn’t been rebuilt. That has traumatised everyone on all sides, not just me but him.”
Raphael was among three men who were wrongly convicted of murdering a gay man, Peter Hurburgh, in 1988 during a series of robberies around London’s orbital road system.
