S07E10 | Liam Naylor | The Murder of Doreen Walker


In the tenth and final episode of season 7, I tell the story of Liam Naylor and Doreen Walker.

 

On April 1, 2014, Naylor broke into the house of 75-year-old Doreen and murdered her before stealing the £104 pension money she'd collected earlier that day.

 

He used the money to treat his friends to a night out in Barnsley.

 

The following day, Naylor was arrested on suspicion of murder in Skegness.

 

On October 16, 2014, Liam Naylor was found guilty of murdering Doreen Walker and handed a life sentence with a minimum term of 33 years.
