S11E10 | The Murder of Georgia Williams (Wellington, Shropshire, 2013)
In this episode, I tell the story of Georgia Williams, a 17-year-old girl killed in Wellington, Shropshire, on May 26, 2013.
Georgia left her parents' home that Sunday evening shortly before 8 pm to take part in what she thought was a photoshoot with 22-year-old Jamie Reynolds, someone she knew through her older sister, Scarlett.
After failing to return home, Georgia's parents, Steve and Lynnette, raised the alarm two days later after realising she was not with her friends, which led to a nationwide hunt for their youngest daughter. Her body was discovered on May 31, some 50 miles away from her home in woodland near the Nant-y-Garth pass in Denbighshire, North East Wales.
Reynolds, who was known to the police and mental health agencies, had lured Georgia to his parents' home and killed her during a faux photo shoot. He was later assessed by a psychiatrist who said he would potentially have gone on to become a serial killer had he not been caught.
He pleaded guilty to murdering Georgia on the first day of his trial at Stafford Crown Court, with Judge Mr Justice Wilkie subsequently handing him a whole life order.
On May 25, 2023, Mardle Books released 'Our Georgia: The devastating murder of my daughter by a killer who should have been stopped.' The book was written by Georgia's mum, Lynnette, with journalist Robin Eveleigh and the help and support of Steve and Scarlett. You can purchase a copy here:
