Local True Crime Case – Pretty Windows

Many of you will be familiar with the ‘Pretty Windows’ case that features in a new true crime podcast:


More than 50 years have passed since the fatal stabbing of publican George Wilson in Nottingham and his family members are still seeking closure. The pub was called the Fox and Grapes, but local folk knew it by another name, the Pretty Windows, on account of its ornate stained glass.

It was late one Saturday night in 1963. George Wilson locked up and took his dog for a walk. The next time his wife saw him he was lying on a pool of blood, the victim of a frenzied knife attack. Who killed George Wilson and why? Simon Ford and ex major-crime detective Jacques Morrell investigate.

The case is featured in this episode of a new true crime podcast called
