Characters Most Likely to Have Killed EastEnders' Lucy Beale

So, members of the jury (that's you by the way) who killed pretty, young businesswoman, Lucy Beale? Although, over the weeks has collected a fair number of potential suspects. Let us weigh up the facts...
The voting period for this list has ended.
The Top Ten
1 Whitney Dean

Friend of the deceased. A little unstable. In her mind, newcomer Lee Carter, because he kissed her, believes he is hers - that is until she learned that he spent a passionate night with Lucy in her Father's restaurant. Could Whitney, in a moment of jealous rage, have killed her friend?

2 Peter Beale

Brother of the deceased. He overheard his Father praising his twin sister over him. Again, could Lucy's tragic death be the result of jealousy?

3 Ian Beale

Father of the deceased. Is he trying to stop her from becoming successful and outshinhng him? Or, since he found out about his daughter's cocaine habit, in his own way, be trying to save her from a life of drugs by killing her?

Maybe Iain killed Lucy

4 Lauren Branning

Friend, recovering alcoholic and business partner of the deceased. She is also the daughter of the man Lucy was having an affair with. Could messed up Lauren have killed her friend over her betrayal?

5 Max Branning

Jilted lover of the deceased. Lucy called time on their affair after her guilt that Max is her friend's Father. Max has a temper, we all know that - did he kill Lucy because of his wounded male pride? Or to cover up his affair with his daughter's best friend...

Because he had an affair with Lucy way before her death and caused her to hit her head off the chair in the car lot and he has a temper on him as well I might be totally wrong or I could be right and he used his own daughter Abi to clean up his mess that he made

6 DS Cameron Bryant

Whoever did it obviously well known to emma summerhayes, by the way she spoke to the person on the phone.

It's the clever copper you know it's him playing it sly

7 Lucy's Cocaine Dealer

How about Lucy's drug dealer being Emma's ex, the policeman (Cameron). I reckon he's dodgy!

Could he have killed for non-payment of drugs?

I think that lee carter

I think Lucy beales drug dealer is obviously Lee Carter or Jake Stone and either Lee or Jake killed her for not paying for the drugs or I could be totally wrong makes sense

8 Denise Fox

Fed up, potential stepmother of the deceased. Lucy may have found out that Denise wants out of a loveless relationship with her Father. Could they have had an argument, and in the heat of the moment, Denise killed her?

9 Cindy Beale

Teenage pregnant Half sister to the deceased. Could Lucy's death be the result of the fact that Lucy has everything that the young teenager hasn't?

10 Bobby Beale

Because I know he's the killer but if I didn't I would have gone for whitney

I put this on here as a joke and turns out he's the killer

He is the killer I saw the episode

He is the killer

The Contenders
11 Ben Mitchell

Once a murderer always a murderer.. and a Mitchell.

He is also a killer on the loose because he has killed before remember Heather Trott and was released from prison on the same night Lucy was killed

He is KILLER. Killed Lucy because he DID. I know he killed heather trott on head wreaked

12 Lee Carter

Love rat. Unlikely to have killed Lucy, what do we really know about this charming newcomer to the Square?

I do not think that Lee killed Lucy because he did not know Lucy that well before she made him suspect number one but I reckon that Lee could well be Lucy's drug dealer

13 Abi Branning

This is Michael gannon here. And just to let you that I do watch eastenders all the time. I can not wait to watch the live eposides next week and to find out who killed Lucy beel. I believe it was abi branning because She planted the evidence in the common and left it behind her and got the shovel and duc it up. from then on she was very un easy with herself and for me she was the killer

I will say that it could well turn out to be Abi Branning who killed Lucy Beale because it turned out to be Abi who who was stalking Lauren after Cameron Bryant started it in the first place and she has interfered in the police investigation into Lucy's death and perverted the course of justice as well Abi has it in her to kill someone anyway I know it is Abi

I know it is Abi who killed Lucy Beale because she has all the motives aplenty for wanting her dead anyway Abis strongest motive is Lucys affair with her dad Max and Abi wanted revenge for that

14 Nick Cotton

I think it was Nick Cotton who killed Lucy while he pretended to be dead and Lucy threatened to tell Dot that her son is not really dead

15 Steven Beale
16 Jay Mitchell

Jay is covering for either Abi or Ben I know he is because Jay has covered for Ben before through the murder of heather trott and he would do anything for abi absolute anything I know it

I think Jay could also be involved as well because he was caught with Ben robbing an off licence on the night Lucy was killed and Lucy saw them and threatened to tell the police

I still think it is Jay who killed Lucy and he was on the same bus as Lucy got out at the same bus stop as Lucy and went in the same direction as Lucy plus Lucy recognised his West Ham beanie hat and knows it is him who killed her

17 Lucy Beale

Could sad, lonely, depressed Lucy have commited suicide? Did she overdose on cocaine? Is she trying to frame one of many suspects?

It is not her she is the one that got murdered so can't be From Ava Blake

18 Shirley Carter
19 Mandy Salter
20 Dot Branning

This would be a great killer, how would they script it out, why would Dot kill Lucy?

Dot's already killed Nick

21 Phil Mitchell

I think Phil Mitchell could be Lucy's drug dealer as well because he has a history of violence history of cocaine and crack cocaine helped Ben to cover up the murder of Heather Trott Phil is also the resident bully and thug I have always said that and he pretends to have sympathy for Ian Beale when he does not really I totally think that Phil is involved in Lucy's death most definitely Phil has to be involved as well I know it

Phil may not have killed Lucy but I think he is involved in her death as part of a cover up like he has done before with Heather Trotts death

22 Jane Beale
23 Jake Stone
