Further resources and links on the Christopher Laverack case that shocked Hull in 1984 and for decades beyond, as the killer was not caught at the time. I am looking in more detail at this case for a number of reasons. One is that it is not a cold case, there is now a killer which the Laverack family accepts, although for reasons which will become clear, there was never a trial. Another reason is that it’s really the case that inadvertently led me to start Crime Guy: it is a very important part of my childhood, and that of every 1980s child born in the area.
The BBC Crimewatch reconstruction features many details I did not know about, including the theme tune from TV show The Fall Guy. This was such a happy song and series for me, and I find it almost unbearably sad that it was the last detail of Christopher’s life.
The reconstruction below was made five months after Christopher was killed, in August 1984.
