Meet the man who brought serial killer Levi Bellfield to justice in his Coventry show

THE man who brought serial killer Levi Bellfield to justice will shed new light on the investigation and his 30 years in the force when he comes to Coventry.

Colin Sutton, former Detective Chief Inspector with the Metropolitan Police, will bring his show ‘The Real Manhunter – Live’ to the Coventry Building Society Arena on Friday, March 15.

Colin was Senior Investigating Officer for the Metropolitan Police and led more than 30 successful murder investigations.

These include two of the most infamous cases in British history- pursuing serial killer Levi Bellfield and serial rapist Delroy Grant, known as the ‘Night Stalker’.

Colin, who retired in 2011, was portrayed by Martin Clunes in the BAFTA-nominated ITV drama Manhunt, based on his three decades in the police.

Colin said: “The reception for Manhunt with ITV and now The Real Manhunter with Sky has been incredible.




“It feels like people want to hear about how things work and what goes into a high-profile investigation.

“With the Bellfield case, it was such a good job from everyone involved that I felt it warranted writing about.


“I sat on the memoirs for a little while and was selling flowers for about 10 months when I retired, but since Ed Whitmore said we should make a show about it, it’s been a wild ride.”
