Jill Dando was a BBC News journalist and overall television personality who, after fifteen years of being on the air, was shot in the head at point blank range on her doorstep just outside of London.
Nobody heard a gunshot, and she wasn’t found until fourteen minutes later at 11:46 A.M. by her neighbor who was able to give the only description of the possible killer—a six-foot white man walking away. Not very descriptive, right? The police ended up arresting and convicting another neighbor with a history of stalking women.
But after a few years in the clink, he was able to prove his innocence due to lack of DNA evidence. Rumors began to spread that maybe it was a hired killing.
After all, Dando was widely known and had a heck of a lot of enemies. Some people believe she was murdered by Yugoslavs or a Croatian terror group while others believe the head of a pedophilia ring that Dando reportedly exposed was behind her murder. As of now, nobody knows who pulled the trigger and the case remains open.
