Is Lee Ashworth guilty?

If series two is anything to go by, it's not a done deal that Ricky Gillespie, Lee Ashworth and Claire Ashworth will be found guilty. Despite confessing one after the other to being involved in Lisa Newberry and Pippa Gillespie's murders, in the world of Broadchurch that doesn't mean anything.
