R v Brizzi (2017)

Crispin Aylett QC led the prosecution of Mr Brizzi for the murder of PC Semple.

Stefano Brizzi made contact with PC Gordon Semple on a gay website. The victim went to Brizzi's home, where Mr Brizzi, intoxicated by crystal meth, strangled the victim in the course of sexual activity. Mr Brizzi then dismembered the body and, inspired by the TV series Breaking Bad, attempted to dissolve the body parts in acid.
