Jill Wendy Dando was an English journalist, television presenter, and newsreader who lived from 9 November 1961 to 26 April 1999. She spent the majority of her career with the BBC, where she was named Personality of the Year in 1997.
Her television employment included co-hosting the BBC One show Crimewatch with Nick Ross at the time of her death.
Dando was shot dead outside her home in Fulham, southwest London, on April 26, 1999, sparking the Metropolitan Police’s greatest murder investigation and the country’s longest criminal investigation since the hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper.
Barry George, a local man, was convicted and imprisoned for the murder, but he was acquitted after an appeal and retrial after serving eight years in prison. The Serbian ‘warlord’ Arkan was mentioned as a suspect in the case in 2012, despite the fact that he had died in 2000.
Despite the fact that authorities identified over 2,000 probable suspects, no other suspects have been charged in Dando’s murder.
