Today George Metcalff was convicted, and whilst that will bring some relief for the family of Patricia Henry, he is still being called upon to reveal where he disposed of the body of the 46-year-old mum to give her loved ones closure.

The police have issued a statement calling on Metcalff 'to do the decent thing' and tell them where Patricia's body is.

Earlier at the High Court in Glasgow, Patricia's daughter, Allanah McGrory, 21, gave a victim impact statement to the Crown demanding Metcalff: "Give me and my family the closure we need.

"Tell us where she is.

"I need somewhere to visit my mum and my gran needs somewhere to visit her daughter.

"You took her away from us and I will never be able to forgive you."

And the police have echoed those words. 

Detective Superintendent Suzanne Chow, Major Crime, Police Scotland said: “George Metcalff’s conviction brings to an end his 50-year reign of abuse against women which culminated in his murder of Patricia Henry.

"The bravery and willingness to speak out after so many years about their own or their loved ones experiences at Metcalff’s hands has resulted in his conviction not only for what he did to his partners but also for Patricia’s murder.

“Throughout the investigation and trial, Patricia’s family have conducted themselves with dignity and determination to find Patricia.

“It is now up to George Metcalff to do the decent thing, to tell us where Patricia’s body is and to allow her family to give her a proper burial and to mourn.”

George Metcalff was found guilty of murdering Patricia Henry four years ago.

The 72-year-old previously denied murdering the 46-year-old - known as Patti - at a flat in Girvan on November 13, 2017.

He was also found guilty of sexually assaulting Patricia in December 2014, as well as choking her in October 2017.

Other charges against him dated back to June 1971, including the alleged rape of a woman at the Gleniffer Braes, in Paisley.
