Bristol: The Murder of Jenny King Murdertown

    • True Crime

On October 30th 1998, twenty-two year-old Jenny King left Chasers Nightclub in Bristol with a fiver that her brother had given her to get a taxi home. The following day, Jenny’s loved ones would realise she never made the mile to her family home in Warmley. Over the coming weeks, the residents of Bristol would question the shocking similarities between Jenny’s disappearance and that of Melanie Hall from nearby Bath just two years earlier.


Following each episode of Katherine Kelly's true crime TV series Murdertown, Benjamin Fitton from They Walk Among Us unpicks a new case from each location. Watch Murdertown exclusively on Crime+Investigation in the UK every Monday at 9pm and then straight after listen to a brand new story right here with the Murdertown podcast.

The Murdertown podcast is hosted by Benjamin Fitton, researched and written by Anna Priestland and produced and edited by Chloe Frost.
