In this episode of British Murders, I tell the story of English murderer Tony Jasinskyj.

Jasinskyj raped and murdered 14-year-old Marion Crofts on June 6, 1981.

Marion was cycling to band practice before being attacked by Jasinskyj, a Lance Corporal in the British Army, who was stationed at Browning Barracks in Aldershot at the time of the murder.

The case is notable for the 21-year delay in justice before Jasinskyj was found guilty as a result of advances in DNA testing.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment.
