Reality show contestant is real-life murderer
Commercial broadcaster RTL said it intends scrapping an episode of a reality TV programme following revelations that one of the contestants was involved in a murder case in 2005.
The popular programme entitled "The Villa" features young people in a house on the Spanish coast. In an instalment scheduled for broadcast on 11 October, ‘creepy’ Davy was due to make his appearance.
Now it has emerged that the same Davy was one of two criminals who threw a brick street tile from a motorway bridge at a passing motorist. The 30-year-old driver died in the incident. Davy spent a five-year term in jail for the murder.
RTL5 decided to scrap the episode as a token of respect for the relatives of the victim.
