Murdered By My Fiancé

Part of Must Watch

Author Helen Bailey thought she’d found the perfect ending to her own story when she met Ian Stewart. But this was no fairy-tale romance. The couple seemed to have it all… money, success, a beautiful home, a perfect life… but it was a story that would end in murder. Found in a cesspit under her own home – she was killed by her fiancé who stood to inherit a fortune.

They met through a Facebook bereavement group. Ian’s wife had died in 2010, while Helen’s husband of 22 years, John, drowned when they were on holiday in Barbados. Helen had written a blog about her grief, which was turned into a novel. The book was dedicated to ‘my gorgeous grey-haired widower Ian Stewart: BB, I love you, you are my happy ending.’ It’s a true story – that’s stranger than fiction.
