Season 1, Episode 4 – “Bei Carter”
Hotelier Bei Carter was found dead in her Bridlington guest house by her husband Terry. With only three guests at the hotel, two of whom were accounted for at the time of the murder, police attention turned to John Heald, who had just checked in to the B&B. After Bei’s murder, John Heald went on the run for seven days, making his way back to his native South Yorkshire, where several public sightings had been reported to the police. However, after evading police capture by lying low in woodland near Rotherham, John surfaced at a nearby café where the owner recognised him and reported him to the police, who arrested him soon after. Police discovered that killer John was already on the run from police in South Yorkshire after he faced rape charges. During the court hearing, John Heald admitted to Bei’s murder but stated it was not deliberate or pre-meditated. However, before he could be sentenced John hanged himself in his cell.
