Rebecca Jane Middleton (June 27, 1979 - July 3, 1996) was a Canadian teenager who was raped and murdered while on vacation in Bermuda.

Due to numerous errors in the prosecution of the perpetrators and double jeopardy no one was charged with the murder. Due to the heinous nature of the crime, the lack of prosecution and the persistence of the Middleton family in seeking justice, it became a high-profile case and attracted the work of Cherie Booth (the former UK Prime Minister's wife).[1]
