Mr Berriman’s quest to find the truth came when he discovered twelve years ago that he is the son of Sandra Rivett who was possibly murdered by Lucan back in 1974. He was adopted shortly after his birth, but upon discovering the truth of his identity vowed to uncover the truth about what happened to his mother. What ensued is a four-year investigation funded by £300,000 of his own cash to find what happened to Lord Lucan, which lead him to Australia where he now believes the aristocrat lives life as a “Buddhist.”
Scotland Yard has also been informed of this new information that Mr Berriman hopes will catch the murderous aristocrat.
He revealed: “I know he’s still alive”
Mr Berriman believes that the man who could be Lucan is seriously ill and awaiting major surgery that has left him housebound.
The Daily Mirror confirmed with a source that an elderly Englishman who looks like Lucan does live in the house Mr Berriman has mentioned.
Lord Lucan would now be 85 years old, his wife Lady Lucan was found dead in September 2017 at the Belgravia home where the murder took place.
Father-of-two Mr Berriman, who lives in West Sussex, with his wife Kim, said: “He has been alive all this time. Lying about who he is. Lying about it to his new friends.”
Detectives believe that Lucan who was an abusive husband intended to murder his wife and killed the nanny by mistake.

Comment has also been given by George Bingham who was made 8th Earl of Lucan after his father was declared dead by the courts back in 2016.
“I’ve met him a couple of times but had no idea he was looking for him and had spent so much,
“He isn’t the first person to go to Australia looking. I remember the press went out there to try and find my father and instead found John Stonehouse who had faked his own death.”
“This is all ancient history. It happened in 1974 and now it’s 2020. I guess people will always go on looking and they are welcome to do so.”
If Lucan had escaped across to Australia it certainly is feasible as he had friends in high places that were able to help him disappear.
The aristocrat was a member of ‘The Clermont Club’ that included James Bond author Ian Fleming, actor Peter Sellers, and artist Lucian Freud
