Is King Edward lll guilty?

Some evidence could prove that he is guilty such as the fact that the two princes he was said to have murdered were never seen again after being locked up in a tower, also 200 years later they found 2 bodies under the stairs in the tower.

But he may also not be guilty because he was known to be a loyal brother and charming, also the story of him being a murderer could've been made up by his enemies who disliked him.
