David Barrie Draycott was shot in his car outside his home on 7 October 2002 and died four days later in hospital on 11 October 2002.

He had just pulled up to his home in his black Mercedes car at about 9.15pm when he was shot 10 times. He was shot in the chest and abdomen but managed to get to a neighbour's house where he was given first aid before being taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Several arrests were made but no one was charged. In 2011 a man was extradited for drugs charges from Dubai to Spain who it was thought might have been involved in the murder of David Draycott and later in 2015 arrested in connection with the murder.

David Draycott was married with children.
