A relative of one woman told The Sun she would be prepared to provide DNA if it helped prepare him for the horrific 1996 attack on the family.

She spoke after The Sun on Sunday revealed how Bellfield – has served the tariff for life – last month issued a four-page official confession.

He details how he kills people Lin, 45, and Megan, six, as well as the family dog, and left nine-year-old Josie with horrifying wounds.

Not yet Michael Stonenow 61 years old, serving a life sentence for murder on a bridle road near the village of Chillenden, Kent, on July 9, 1996.

He would have been eligible for pardon this year if he admitted to the murders, but he has always denied any guilt instead.

Bellfield previously retracted another confession to the murder he inflicted on an inmate.

And he has repeatedly lied to police about other crimes for which he initially claimed responsibility, before returning.

But relatives told The Sun: “I believe Levi carried out the Russell murders.

“I thought that for years. This confession came as no shock to me. He is a monster, a complete villain. ”

Bellfield had previously been given a clear alibi by his former partner Johanna Collingswho said he celebrated her 25th birthday on the day of the murder.

Now, however, Joanna claims to have mixed the days of the week.

Relatives of Bellfield, who asked not to be named, said: “The alibi provided at the time was not something I believed in.”

She continued: “We want to help Michael Stone. I have always believed that Bellfield did this.

“We will provide whatever they need. We will be performing DNA tests that may aid in any future police investigation.

“This confession must be taken seriously. Bellfield is capable of anything. We all think Michael Stone is innocent.”

The relative continued: “Bellfield is the worst person in the world. We abandoned him years ago. The word monster does not do him justice. My personal belief is that he is responsible.

“He is a pure villain. This needs to be revisited because I think you’ve got a man like Michael Stone serving a life sentence when he shouldn’t be. Here is a detailed confession. It’s specific. ”

She added: “We fear that there are dozens of other people out there that he has attacked and even killed.”

‘PURE’

Rebecca Wilkinson, Bellfield’s ex-partner who broke up with him a year before Russell’s murder, also believes in his new prison confession.

“I knew he would say that after his mother Jean passed away a few years ago,” she said.

Bellfield is facing the tax for life after being convicted in 2008 of murdering a French student with a hammer Amelie Delagrange, 22 years old, 2004 and final year students Marsha McDonnell, 19 years old, years ago in South West London.

In 2011, he was convicted of murdering a 13-year-old child Milly Dowlerwas kidnapped as she walked home from school in Walton, Surrey, in March 2002.

Bellfield is currently being held in the vulnerable prisoner unit at Durham’s . Frankland Prison.

Stone is being held in the main wing of the same prison.

The Criminal Cases Review Committee is reviewing his conviction and his family has urged investigators to take Bellfield’s confession seriously.

Barbara, Stone’s sister, said of Bellfield’s claim: “I am one hundred percent convinced that what he said is true.”

Bellfield confessed to Stone’s attorney Paul Bacon, who yesterday urged police to reopen the case immediately.

He said: “I believe that the statement that Bellfield has made is true.

‘DETAILED THEME’

“Now the police need to interview Bellfield cautiously and then we can confirm Michael Stone’s innocence in the end.”

Shaun, Lin’s husband, said he also doubts Stone’s guilt. “All the way through there was this nagging doubt,” he said.

“If I were on that jury, I think I would be one of two against ten who think he is guilty.

“I can’t say 100% that he killed Lin and Megan, and while there’s that suspicion, I can’t direct my anger toward him.”

Mr. Russell also said corrections officers knew Stone said he was “acting like a man who has been falsely accused”.

But Colin SuttonThe former Met detective who arrested Bellfield has previously asserted that the serial killer was not responsible for Russell’s murders.

And he’s hinted Bellfield could now join him, possibly just to get more attention.

“Knowing Bellfield as I do,” he calculated, “this could be him playing a mind game.”
