57 - Unsolved: The murder of Grace Livingstone Mens Rea: A true crime podcast

    • True Crime

In 1992, a murder unlike any other happened in the quiet seaside town of Malahide. Grace Livingstone (56) was bound and then shot in the head in her own home. 
Gardai initially suspected that the culprit was someone close to her - Grace's husband, Jim. But Jim himself suspected that whoever was responsible had taken their displeasure for him, and his position at the Irish taxing authority, out on poor Grace.
Her murder remains unsolved.
