Very similar to the Colette Aram murder, which I worked on.
DNA research is advancing all the time.
See wiki entry.

I remember this case well. It was just a couple of days after Claire's 16th birthday.

I saw a programme recently where Professor David Wilson surmised that the killing was similar to those carried out by Robber Napper who killed Rachel Nickell and another young mother with her child.

We shall see.

The professor's credibility has been severely damaged by his support of someone else who shall remain nameless....
