Who was Paul Trueman in EastEnders?
Paul Trueman made his first appearance on EastEnders back in 2001 and was a regular until his exit in 2004.
He was the son of Patrick Trueman and was involved in some huge storylines during his three years in Walford.
Back in 2003, Paul found a baby girl on his doorstep which turned out to be his daughter from a one night stand.
But after taking care of baby Eleanor, her mum Amy arrived on the Square and demanded her daughter back.
Paul is also known for his affair with Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks), with the pair of them planning to trick Barry Evans (Shaun Williamson) into handing over all his money.
Who killed Paul Trueman in EastEnders?
Paul got on the wrong side of the law when he started working for the evil Andy Hunter in 2004 as a drug dealer.
After being arrested, Paul told the police details of the dodgy dealings, leading a furious Andy to order his murder in December 2004.
While Paul thought about running away, he decided to face the music and said a tearful goodbye to Patrick before leaving in a taxi.
The driver of the taxi was a hitman sent by Andy, and Paul was heard asking him to ‘make it quick’.
A month later, Patrick discovered his son was murdered and had to identify his body. Andy was later killed in February 2005 by Johnny Allen.
