GP ordered contract killing of financial adviser via ‘Chechen mob’ website, jury told

A retired GP from Dorset ordered the contract killing of a financial adviser via a website linked to mobsters in Chechnya, a jury has been told.

David Crichton allegedly contacted a site on the dark web called Crime Bay by Chechen Mob because he had a vendetta against Andrew Boldon over a loss of £300,000 from his pension.

Crichton, from Bournemouth, was allegedly prepared to pay £3,800 for the hit but was caught after the National Crime Agency (NCA) investigated the website.

The 64-year-old is on trial at Winchester crown court accused of attempting to solicit the murder of Bolden, a pension and wealth investment adviser based in Edinburgh for the London-based private bank Brown Shipley.
