Ongoing murder investigation in the UK

Shortly before 3 a.m. last Saturday, 19 March, a 22-year-old woman left a nightclub, where she had been with friends, to walk the half mile to the flat where she lived with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend had been away overnight and when he returned and she wasn't there, he contacted the police at 9.45 a.m. to report her missing. He had sent her a text message earlier, at about 3.30 a.m., and the police were able to track through her mobile phone records where the phone was at that time. The distance between the nightclub and that location was such that it was clear that a car was involved.

That location is in a forested area, and initially many members of the public joined in the search. Earlier today, the police issued an urgent appeal to anyone who saw a green Toyota Avensis taxi on the night the woman disappeared. Later, they get information that such a vehicle had been seen in a taxi rank outside a supermarket, and arrested the driver. Subsequently, police went to a particular location where they found a body believed to be that of the missing woman. The police are also searching another location where they have been told that a second body has been buried.

What is disturbing about this case is that this young woman obviously knew the area well, felt safe enough to walk home alone, and wouldn't have used a taxi for a half-mile journey to her home.

What is also disturbing is that the taxi driver has been identified as a 47-year-old man who is apparently* the father of three teenage girls.

*From the Daily Mail, so might not be accurate.

It's horrible how many stories are out there like this. We had one awhile back here in Oklahoma where a young pre-teen was missing and found dead, but if I remember correctly, they found her body in the killer's apartment. He was keeping her around. World is full of sick-os.


"Time is too slow for those who wait; too swift for those who fear;

too long for  those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice.

But for those who love, time is eternity."
