On 4th June 1992, Paula Gilfoyle was found hanging in the garage of her marital home in Upton, Wirral.
She was eight and a half months pregnant. Her husband, Eddie Gilfoyle, was arrested four days later on suspicion of her murder, despite police finding a hand-written suicide note that was confirmed by experts to be her own writing.
He was subsequently convicted and received a life sentence. He has consistently protested his innocence.
After 18 years imprisonment, he was released on licence in December 2010 subject to rigid restrictions which he describes as ‘worse than prison’. This new website outlines the facts of Eddie Gilfoyle’s case. Serious blunders and failures were committed by the Coroner’s Officer, Merseyside Police and others at the scene of Paula Gilfoyle’s death.
The subsequent police investigation was predicated on erroneous ‘expert’ evidence which purported to show that she could not have killed herself without assistance. Crucial evidence was withheld at Eddie Gilfoyle’s 1993 trial and appeal hearings in 1995 and 2000. Throughout the two decades since his wife’s death, there has been a continuing failure by police and prosecution to disclose vital case material.
