Beryl Evans, originally Beryl Susanna Thorley is gassed and strangled by serial killer John Christie aka The Strangler of 10 Rillington Place at the age of 20 in 10 Rillington Place, London, Greater London, United Kingdom.

Beryl and Timothy Evans' 1-year-old daughter Geraldine was also strangled. Timothy confessed to the murder and was executed by hanging on 9 March 1950. Before Christie's execution by hanging onĀ 15 July 1953 he confessed to murdering Beryl Evans. An official inquiry concluded in 1966 that Christie had also murdered Geraldine, and Timothy Evans was granted a posthumous pardon.
