JILL Dando’s brother wants he a Netflix documentary to help find her killer, more than two decades after she was shot dead outside her Fulham flat.
The ‘Crimewatch’ presenter was shot dead on her doorstep in 1999, aged 37, and Netflix is set to release a new three-part series called ‘Who Killed Jill Dando?’, which will explore the unresolved murder case.
Nigel Dando, the brother of the TV star, told Politicalite: “My hope is that the publicity will bring forward someone with new information who can bring Jill’s killer to justice.
“I know [it was] a long time ago but someone might know something. My personal feeling is it was somebody looking for a kick and for notoriety.
“Jill was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There have been a number of names in the public domain and it might be one of them.
“I am looking for a case which would come to court with a guilty verdict which is not overturned, and the person responsible for Jill’s death to be jailed.”
In 2001, it was believed the legal matter was closed when Barry George, now 62, was found guilty of the crime. However, in 2008 he was acquitted of the murder.
Politicalite revealed in 2018 that the TV-star reportedly knew ‘too much’ about the paedophile ring at the BBC, and tried to alert her BBC bosses in the mid-90s, it has been claimed.
Dando, 37 who was shot dead outside her North London home in 1999, is said to have attempted to alert BBC bigwigs of the now infamous paedo ring operating inside the BBC and knew of “big name” stars caught up in the scandal, claimed a former colleague.
Jane Moore, who features in the documentary, is also hopeful that it will help to solve the case.
She said on ‘Loose Women’: “Here we are 24 years on and still nobody has the answer to the question of who did this. I reported on it on the time. Her brother Nigel, who is also a journalist, feels that this could help bring somebody forward that might know something.
“It’s happened with other documentaries where it just triggers a memory, or people’s circumstances change or suddenly decide they will come forward with a piece of information and that is what he is hoping that this documentary will bring.”
