Stewart "Specky" Boyd

Organized crime figure. Known as “Specky” he was a drug lord that
operated out of the Royal Oak pub in Nitshill, Glasgow. Specky and his
thugs were responsible for a series of murders and disappearances over
the past two decades. He had links dating back to the times of Arthur
‘The Godfather’ Thompson Sr., the right-hand man to jailed drug baron
John Healy and enforcer for exiled Guardian security firm boss Paul
Johnston. He was cleared of murdering Paisley gangster Mark Rennie and
jailed for intimidating witnesses on behalf of his masters at another
trial.

He was killed in a fiery car crash in Malaga, Spain that also killed his
daughter, Anne Nicola Gadin, her friend, Louise Anne Douglas, and his
girlfriend Catherine’s 3 yr. old daughter, Helen Lindsay. He was laid to
rest after a service at this father's council house in Priesthill,
Glasgow. Hundreds of mourners lined Nitshill Road in Glasgow's south
side to say farewell to one of the city's most feared crime chiefs.
Buried: Neilston Cemetery, Glasgow, Scotland. Stewart Boyd was born in
1963 and died 28 June 2003. (Glasgow Newspaper)
