LONDON, Ont. - A convicted killer named “David” has been identified by a celebrity sleuth and his team as a possible suspect in the four-decades old homicide of a 15-year old southwestern Ontario girl.

To Catch a Killer, a reality crime detective series that aired Saturday night on the Oprah Winfrey Network, profiled the unsolved murder of Jackie English of London, Ont.

The civilian investigative team, using some clues left behind by a deceased OPP detective and modern investigative tools, narrowed the search down to a man convicted sometime in the 1970s of non-capital murder.

The full name of the suspect, his original hometown and other details about his previous crime were obscured during the show for legal reasons.

The show, the brainchild of London police officer and Western University professor Mike Arntfield, re-examined the cold case murder of English, who vanished on Oct. 4, 1969.
