PLAYBOY Bunny Eve Stratford was murdered, and it has been over 50 years since the crime went unresolved.

After Eve was murdered in March 1975, London’s nightlife took a hit, and police questioned a wealthy businessman and editor of a high-end magazine.

The murderer may have been involved in two other gruesome killings that occurred in the same decade.

The Playboy Bunny Murder, a new two-part ITVX documentary, focuses on the unsolved deaths.

Who was Eve Stratford?

Eve was born in Germany, raised in Warrington, and then relocated to London in an attempt to pursue her modeling career.

The 19-year-old started working as a waiter at the Playboy Club in central London, where she interacted with celebrities such as boxer John Conteh, actor Sid James, and comedian Eric Morecambe.

She appeared nude on the front cover of Playboy, the US magazine, after it was rejected by its British competitor, Mayfair.

During the intense nine-page photo shoot, which featured a full-frontal naked centerfold and a conversation, she disclosed that she like to be in charge in the bedroom but disliked being “whipped or tied up.”

Victor Aubrey Lownes III, the Playboy Club’s owner, was furious when he saw the lewd photo in the competitor magazine and suspended the member for three months.

However, Eve saw the suspension as a chance to continue advancing her modeling career.

What happened to Eve Stratford

When her lover Tony Priest returned to their East London apartment on March 17, 1975—two weeks after her contentious Mayfair shoot—he found a blood flood.

Eve had numerous deep cuts on her throat, among other horrifying wounds. Investigators discovered she had been shackled, sexually assaulted, and subsequently killed.

Eve’s cover shoot in Mayfair and the interview where she stated she “lived alone with my cat” may have encouraged the killer to target her, according to the police, who characterized the sight as one of the worst they had ever seen.

Among those questioned by police were her lover Tony, editor of Mayfair magazine David Brenner, and businessman Abdul Khawaja from Lebanon.

However, no charges were made, and Eve’s death is still unsolved.
