Lin Russell and her daughter Megan, then six, were brutally murdered in broad daylight in 1996, while Lin’s other daughter Josie, then nine, miraculously escaped. A new Sky documentary “Who Killed Lin and Megan Russell” will examine this terrible crime.
The murders shocked the nation and were among the most terrible of the decade. After a whole year, local drug addict Michael Stone was ultimately charged by the police, partly due to a ‘confession’ to a former cell mate.
This series gives viewers unprecedented access to Stone’s legal team as they prepare for one final appeal after he has been in prison for 25 years while maintaining his innocence. This coincides with a claim by one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers, Levi Bellfield, that he committed the murders.
Who Killed Lin and Megan Russell (w/t) is produced by Rare TV, in association with Sky Studios, and executive produced by Rory Wheeler. Series Director is Tom Peppiatt and Nada Issa is Producer.
