Detective Superintendent Suzanne Chow, Major Crime at Police Scotland said: “George Metcalff’s conviction brings to an end his 50-year reign of abuse against women which culminated in his murder of Patricia Henry.

"The bravery and willingness to speak out after so many years about their own or their loved ones experiences at Metcalff’s hands has resulted in his conviction not only for what he did to his partners but also for Patricia’s murder.

“Throughout the investigation and trial, Patricia’s family have conducted themselves with dignity and determination to find Patricia.

“It is now up to George Metcalff to do the decent thing, to tell us where Patricia’s body is and to allow her family to give her a proper burial and to mourn.”
