Inside story of killer Russell Causley who bragged about 'perfect murder of his b****** wife' as he'll be set free | The Sun

A KILLER who bragged about committing the "perfect murder of his b****** wife" will be released from prison.

Russell Causley – who has refused to reveal the location of his his wife's body – is now set to be released following a public parole hearing.

Carole Packman, 40, disappeared from her family home in Bournemouth in 1985.

Her daughter later discovered her mum's wedding ring and note.

Causley was jailed a decade later after he tried to fake his own death in a staged boating accident.

While behind bars, he is said to have confessed to the killing, discussing the "perfect' murder of his b**** wife".

Causley was convicted of murder in 2004.

Earlier this month, the Parole Board said he was now suitable for release.

The murderer had been released from prison in 2020 but recalled to prison in November last year after breaching his licence conditions.

He failed to answer a phone call from his probation officer and disappearing from his bail hostel.

A MoJ spokeswoman said: "We have thoroughly examined the Parole Board's decision but detailed legal advice concluded there were no grounds to ask them to reconsider their decision.

"We know this will be incredibly difficult for Carole Packman's family, but Russell Causley will be under close supervision for the rest of his life and can be recalled to prison if he breaches the strict conditions of his release.

"Our parole reforms will stand up for the rights of victims in cases like this, making public safety the overriding factor in parole decisions and adding a ministerial veto on release of the most serious offenders."

Carole's daughter Samantha Gillingham had called on Causley to reveal the location of her mum's body before he was considered for parole.

The murder had strong parallels with the case ofpub landlord Ian Simms, who killed Helen McCourt, aged just 22.

Simms, who always refused to say where the body was, died aged 65 two years after being released from a prison.

Simms, from the St Helens area ofMerseyside,attacked Helen in 1988 as she walked home from work.

Helen's mother Marie launched a crusade to campaign against the release of killers such as Simms, who refuse to reveal the location of victims.

This led to the to the Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Act, dubbed Helen’s Law. The law makes it harder for killers who refuse to disclose information about victims to receive parole.

The Act places a statutory duty on the Parole Board to consider the non-disclosure of information about victims in its decision-making.
