NATALIE FRASER says she is '100 per cent' sure that it's Hector Dick, not her dad Nat Fraser, who is guilty of killing her mum.
THE daughter of murdered Arlene Fraser has accused her dad Nat’s former best friend of the killing.
Natalie Fraser claims she is “100 per cent” sure that Hector Dick was responsible for her mum’s death.
The 20-year-old is convinced her dad, who has been convicted twice of killing Arlene, did not have anything to do with the murder.
Natalie, who was five when her mum disappeared in 1998, speaks out in a sensational documentary to be aired tonight on Channel 4.
The ground-breaking programme was allowed to film a High Court murder trial for the first time.
It includes footage of Nat trembling in the dock as he awaits the jury’s decision – and captures the devastation in his face as a guilty verdict is read out.
The film was made last year when the former fruit and veg salesman from Elgin in Moray was retried for the murder.
He had been convicted in 2003 but was later acquitted on a technicality.
At the initial trial, Dick was cleared of murdering Arlene but jailed for a year in 2001 for lying about a beige Ford Fiesta that police believe was involved in her disappearance in 1998.
In the documentary, Natalie was asked what she thought happened to her mum. She answered: “I think she was murdered.”
When asked who she thought did it, she replied: “Hector Dick, 100 per cent.”
Natalie is adamant her dad is innocent. She said: “I don’t have an if or a but or a doubt, I believe in him. We were always together when I was younger.
“I remember when we were younger he said to me, ‘Do you miss your mum?’ I don’t need him to tell me he didn’t do it.”
When asked what she would think if her dad admitted he killed Arlene, she said: “I wouldn’t believe it.”
