Tony Dyce

Last month, Tony Dyce, a sexual predator who committed a triple murder that went undetected for 28 years was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison. Dyce believed he had escaped suspicion after killing Norma Richards, 27, and two of her young daughters at their home in Dalston, north-east London in July 1982.

He followed Norma home from a club knowing that her partner was away in Spain with his brother. Dyce raped her and stabbed her to death.

One or other of the young girls – Samantha, nine and Syretta, seven – is thought to have been woken by the noise. They were drowned and stabbed to prevent them from identifying the intruder.
