Swindon murderer Glyn Razzell fails in parole bid

By Barrie Hudson - 27 September 2023


A Swindon man who murdered his wife in 2002 has lost his bid to be freed on parole.

Linda Razzell has not been seen since she vanished while on her way to her job as a learning support assistant on 19 March that year. 
Estranged husband Glyn Razzell, now 64, was convicted of her murder in November of the following year.
Razzell has always denied any involvement in the murder, in spite of evidence including traces of his wife's blood in a vehicle he was using.
He has remained in prison ever since.
During his latest parole board hearing, the murderer told officials he could not tell them the location of his victim's remains as he did not know she was dead.
The board concluded that his capacity for defeat and refusal to divulge information indicated that he was still a risk.
