On the 29th of December, 1996, Gardai were called to a flat on Liffey St in Dublin city centre. Inside was the body of 26 year old British-Sri Lankan woman, Belinda Pereira, who was staying in Dublin for just a week. The nature of her trip prompted many inches of tabloid fodder. She had come to Dublin in order to carry out sex work. But the voyeuristic media attention on Belinda's case did not last long. Sadly, today, her name is all but forgotten. ************ Join me at CrimeCon Uk on June 11-12 in London 2022!
