In the third episode of season 8, I tell the story of Graeme Neale and Lynn Goldingay.


In March 1985, Radio Trent DJ Graeme Neale murdered his ex-girlfriend Lynn Goldingay after a heated argument following a Paul Young concert.


Graeme had no idea that Lynn was seeing another man, Duncan McCracken, and wouldn't find out until hearing of Duncan's suicide on a prison radio in late May 1985.


A week later, whilst on remand, Graeme was found hanged in his cell at Lincoln Prison.
