Man who killed pop star’s daughter hands himself in to police after going on the run

A man who murdered a pop star’s daughter has handed himself into police after absconding from prison.

Terry Game, 50, was jailed in South Gloucestershire back in 2006 for the murdered of his then-partner Lisa Sullivan.

Game strangled Lisa at a caravan park in Walton-in-the-Naze, in August 2005.

Game was released on temporary licence from HMP Leyhill earlier this month, but failed to meet the conditions of that licence, Avon and Somerset police said on Friday.

Officers were appealing to the public to be on the lookout for the murderer, advising anyone who saw him not to approach him.

A police spokesman said at 10.45pm on Monday: “Wanted man Terry Game, aged 50, has been arrested.

“He handed himself into a police station in Cambridgeshire earlier today and is now in custody.

“Game was wanted after being released from HMP Leyhill on a temporary licence, and failing to meet the conditions of that licence.”

Game was 33 when he killed Lisa and a court heard he had a “history of abuse and violence towards women he became involved with”.

Lisa was the daughter of pop star Lennie Peters who was a household name in the 1970s as part of the duet Peters & Lee.

Her body was discovered by her 11-year-old son at the Martello Caravan Park, while on holiday with her then-boyfriend and three sons George, 11, Austin, four and two-year-old Reggie.

During a two-and-a-half-week trial, a jury at Basildon Crown Court heard that her partner Game told police she had accused him of being useless in bed.

He said he strangled her in self-defence after she attacked him.

The Daily Mail reports Judge Philip Clegg said at the trial: said: “Terry Game has been convicted by a jury of the murder of Lisa Sullivan. I am quite certain that on the evening in question, Lisa Sullivan was the victim of domestic violence.

“I found Terry Game was a bully to the woman who he lived with and in an outburst of violence, a loss of temper, in the early hours of August 3 he took her by the throat and quite literally strangled her.

“It must have been all too obvious that she was fighting for her life but nevertheless, driven by rage, he continued to do so.”

The trial led to Game being jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 15 years.
