Horror Hanging Of An Unwanted Wife – The Surprise Party Naked And Dead: Mystery Murder Of The Girl From Durham
True Detective July 2008
“I am going to show you something that is going to change your life,” the middle-aged man told his 17-year-old girl friend. And he wasn’t joking. “Do you want to see the head or the feet?” he asked, and lifted up one end of a sheet to reveal a bare foot. “I did that so I could be with you,” he said. He went on to tell the teenager that his partner – the victim – had fallen down the stairs, and that if she told anyone of what she had seen he would kill her and her family – and she saw no reason to disbelieve him.
Millionaire Dublin businessman Brian Kearney had already received letters from his wife’s solicitor regarding a separation, but part of him refused to accept that their relationship was finally over. When it did, the consequences for him, his beautiful wife and their two families were far-reaching and disastrous.
The number of men and women involved in the horrific beating, torture, sodomising, gang-rape and murder of Janet Chandler beggared belief. Then they all clammed-up, maintaining their silence so successfully that more than 25 years would pass before a chance conversation broke the case wide open. But if what happened to Janet wasn’t appalling enough, her murder was all the more sickening because it was carried out by people she considered to be her friends.
