Jill Dando

"We have many positive leads"

On April 26, 1999, police arrived at the Fulham home of Jill Dando, and there found the lifeless body of ‘the golden girl of British TV’ outside her front door, a single bullet wound to her head, the keys to her BMW convertible still in her hand. The inquiry into her murder conducted by the Metropolitan Police would be the largest criminal investigation since the hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper. A prime suspect, Barry George, had a history of stalking women, sexual offences and other antisocial behaviour.

George was arrested and convicted at the Old Bailey for Dando’s murder, receiving a sentence of life imprisonment. Following an appeal and retrial, he was acquitted. Some believe George guilty of Dando’s murder, while others suspected her work on Crimewatch was a direct result of her murder by a contract killer, or even the retaliation for the UK’s involvement with NATO’s bombings committed in Serbia. Despite these theories, the senseless killing has continued to remain unsolved.
