Derek Grain, 39, had been in Bristol (UK) just two months when he was brutally killed. His savage murder remains unsolved.
Derek was a mild-mannered man from Hertfordshire, described as somewhat of a “loner” but nonetheless cheerful and kind. He was on temporary transfer at British Aerospace in Filton, a suburb of Bristol in south west England. On the evening prior to Halloween, 1980, Derek had been drinking at Vicki’s and Curves nightclubs, both situated on Park Street, about a 10-minute walk from the Unicorn Hotel where he was staying. He appeared to have been spending quite a lot of cash that evening, paying for each drink with a fresh note, which may have attracted some unwanted attention. At around 2am, Derek left Curves nightclub alone. Rather than heading down Park Street, which would be the most direct route back to his hotel, Derek instead headed in the opposite direction, up Park Street towards Brandon Hill, home of Cabot Tower and a popular picnic spot. It has never been determined why he went this way. It has been suggested that due to only being in the city for a couple of months, Derek was still relatively unfamiliar with the area and being intoxicated, may have simply lost his bearings. However, Park Street is on a distinctively steep hill, and is just off the city centre. It seems unlikely that having had to walk uphill to get to the clubs, Derek would have not known that to return to his hotel he would have only had to walk back down Park Street and through the centre of town. Instead, however, he went in the opposite direction for some unknown reason.

His jacket had been torn off, his bank cards were scattered around his body and police believe (based on estimates of how much money he had been carrying that evening) around £50-60 in cash had been taken, suggesting the murder was a robbery gone wrong. It was however, a particularly brutal attack; Derek had catastrophic head injuries and a bloody footprint was found on his back. He appeared to have been kicked in the head as he lay on the ground. The murder weapon was a heavily bloodstained sand-filled traffic cone found 80 yards from his body.
Given the violent nature of the attack, police believe the attacker, or attackers would have had heavy blood splatter on their clothi... keep reading on reddit ➡
