24th February2003: After more than a year of deception, Richard Hillman confessed a multitude of crimes to wife Gail, all committed to secure the finances of him and his family or to cover up other crimes. His deeds included leaving Duggie Ferguson for dead, killing his ex-wife Patricia, trying to kill Gail's mother Audrey Roberts and then convince everyone she was going mad, attempting to kill Emily Bishop, killing Maxine Peacock and framing Aidan Critchley for killing Maxine and Emily. His hand had been forced when Gail learned that Aidan had been drugged with Diazepam (by Richard) on the night in question and couldn't have killed Maxine. Gail was stunned, and turned against Richard, but while she was on the phone to Audrey, Richard left the No.8.
Kimberley Taylor was an employee at Bettabuy supermarket who was engaged to Curly Watts. Kimberley ended the relationship and transferred to another store when Curly pestered her to have sex before marriage. They reunited through a dating agency a year later before splitting for good when Curly blew £2,000 converting his loft into an observatory against Kimberley's wishes. Kimberley was the daughter of Randolph and Brenda Taylor. She was an only child and had a strict, sheltered upbringing as her parents were old-fashioned church-goers. Kimberley met Curly in October 1989 when he became Bettabuy supermarket's assistant manager. On Curly's first walk around the shop floor, manager Reg Holdsworth invited him to point out where Kimberley had made a mistake in her shelf-stacking technique. Curly re-arranged the display so that it would be more eye-catching to the customer, introducing himself to Kimberley as he did so.
