New Sky documentary to examine murder of The Essex Boys

On December 6th 1995, police are called to a country lane in Rettendon, Essex, to find three men shot dead in a Range Rover.

The victims, Patrick Tate, 37, Tony Tucker, 38, and Craig Rolfe, 26, were identified as the notorious Essex Boys who were major players in the Ecstasy trade that fuelled Britain’s booming rave scene.

Three years later, two men were convicted of the murders and the case seemed to be closed.
