A convicted violent offender planned to kidnap, rape and murder Holly Willoughby but was thwarted by an undercover officer based in the US, a court has heard.

 

Gavin Plumb, 37, was obsessed with the television presenter, amassing more than 10,000 images of her on his phone including deepfake *****graphy. He had carefully planned how to abduct her from her home, take her to his residence in Harlow, Essex, and murder her in an abandoned building, Chelmsford crown court heard.

Quote

Plumb has previous convictions for attempted kidnap and false imprisonment, the jury was told. He had tried to force two women off a train with a fake gun and threatening note in 2006 before attempting to tie up two teenage girls in a Woolworths stock room in 2008.

 

The security guard had bought cable ties and a folding knife, and appeared to have sourced chloroform for his attack on Willoughby. He had also engaged in graphic and sexually motivated discussions about the planned attack online, the prosecution said.

 

The father of one was unaware that one of the people with whom he was communicating was an undercover police officer based in the Owatonna police department in Minnesota, who alerted UK authorities, triggering Plumb's arrest on 4 October 2023.

There are more disturbing details about his past crimes and how detailed his preparations were in the article.
