SPEEDBOAT killer Jack Shepherd claims to have new evidence which will clear him over the death of his Tinder date on the River Thames.

The 31-year-old went on the run and was convicted of manslaughter after Charlotte Brown was killed in the horror crash in 2015.

But according to the Mirror, he is believed to have fresh information about the incident which was not heard during his trial in London.

Shepherd, who is currently being held in Tbilisi, Georgia, wants to give the new findings to Charlotte’s family, his lawyer has said.

Tariel Kakabadze is representing Shepherd and also claims his client can be free if the extradition process continues for nine months – the maximum period someone can be legally held in a Georgian prison.


He told the Mirror: “They (Charlotte’s family) are not my enemy. I would love to talk to them to explain the situation.

“They believe my client is guilty and that is their right but I would like to give them more information about the evidence in this case.

“I could give them information about the incident that they do not know about.”

He also said that the truth of the crash is “hidden” and added that he will “answer the family’s questions”.


Charlotte, from Clacton, Essex, died on December 8, 2015, after the speedboat she was on crashed on the River Thames.

It was said to have been a champagne-fuelled first date with Shepherd, who managed to get to safety when the boat crashed.

Charlotte was pulled from the water unconscious and unresponsive after being thrown from the boat.

A post-mortem examination found she died from cold water immersion.

Shepherd was sentenced to six years in his absence in 2018 for the manslaughter of Brown.

It was reported he had bought the boat to “pull women”.

Blasting Shepherd, her dad Graham, 55, previously said: “He is mocking justice. We are smashed to bits over this whole thing.

“My message to him is that he has stolen a beautiful life through his reckless, crass actions, and he needs to come back and atone for what he has done.”
