Tonight, the full inside story of the Jeilan are Yeates murder

:00:07.:00:13.

investigation from the detectives to solve it. -- Joanna Yeates.

:00:13.:00:17.

is one of those investigations where it just gripped you from the

:00:17.:00:21.

start. He was telling me things that he had and told me on previous

:00:21.:00:26.

conversations, which I thought was odd. I had a very strong gut

:00:26.:00:30.

feeling that something wasn't right. And in an exclusive interview with

:00:30.:00:35.

Crimewatch, Jo's parents describe the terrible moment when they heard

:00:36.:00:39.

their daughter's body had been found. She was dumped there like a

:00:39.:00:44.

piece of garbage. That is where my daughter was last. I was thinking

:00:44.:00:52.

why? There seemed to be no reason to it. You know these birds which

:00:52.:00:55.

run along the ground and work so hard and take to the air flying,

:00:56.:01:00.

that is my amazing daughter. She'd just taken off and somebody shot

:01:00.:01:10.
:01:10.:01:27.

Hello and welcome to Crimewatch. The murder of Joanna Yeates just

:01:27.:01:32.

before Christmas last year grip to the nation. Tonight, for the first

:01:32.:01:36.

time, the police speak candidly about how they caught her killer,

:01:36.:01:40.

Vincent Tabak. And we hear first hand what it was like for Jo's

:01:40.:01:45.

family to be at the centre of that huge media storm. First, let's take

:01:45.:01:49.

a look ahead at tonight's main appeals. The Wild West style shoot-

:01:49.:01:52.

out that killed an innocent man as he was on the phone to his

:01:52.:02:00.

girlfriend. Rico! It just cut out so I thought he'd may be dropped

:02:00.:02:04.

his phone and the batteries were broken, that's why they can't get

:02:04.:02:09.

through to him. I wished that the phone conversation we had was more,

:02:09.:02:15.

a better conversation. Can you name that the man responsible? The

:02:15.:02:18.

detectives in the studio also want to know whether a newborn baby

:02:19.:02:22.

found dead in Kirkham, Lancashire, just a few weeks ago, had been

:02:22.:02:28.

killed. He was discovered in a stream wearing this little top, and

:02:28.:02:32.

identical topped this one. We will have excellent news later on cases

:02:32.:02:36.

solved thanks to your course. they include several arrests as a

:02:36.:02:40.

result of our last programme. A five-year sentence for this thug,

:02:40.:02:45.

found guilty of a slashing a Dorman in the face so brutally he required

:02:45.:02:52.

50 stitches. And there are lots of new wanted faces on CCTV. We have

:02:52.:02:56.

people wanted for murder and armed robbery, and this bright spark who

:02:56.:03:01.

was callous enough to burgle a cancer charity shop. We will also

:03:01.:03:04.

have a reconstruction of an appalling case of mistaken identity

:03:04.:03:08.

in which a 14-year-old boy was kneecapped as he answered a knock

:03:08.:03:13.

at his front door. That evening I was just on the computer, my sister

:03:13.:03:23.
:03:23.:03:24.

was watching some TV. Basically a normal night for us. And can you

:03:24.:03:28.

identify this man? He is believed to have planted suspect devices in

:03:28.:03:31.

Canterbury. Neither exploded but police urgently need to find him

:03:31.:03:37.

before he tries again. But we start tonight with the truly shocking

:03:37.:03:41.

murder of a young man this summer. It happened exactly four months ago

:03:41.:03:45.

when a day of celebration at the St Paul's Carnival in Bristol

:03:45.:03:49.

culminated in a terrifying gunfight in the middle of a busy street. The

:03:49.:03:53.

revellers gunman hit several innocent bystanders, including this

:03:53.:04:03.
:04:03.:04:14.

Gunfights between gangs on our streets are thankfully incredibly

:04:14.:04:19.

rare. But when they do happen at the consequences can be

:04:19.:04:25.

indiscriminate and devastating. In July, 21-year-old Rico Gordon, a

:04:25.:04:30.

completely innocent man, was shot dead here, caught in the crossfire

:04:31.:04:40.
:04:41.:04:45.

when two rival gangs from London Everybody loved him. He made

:04:45.:04:49.

everybody smile, everybody happy. People loved being around him. You

:04:49.:04:56.

felt privileged when he was around because he was so special. His

:04:56.:05:01.

smile would light up the room. He was against any kind of violence,

:05:01.:05:06.

he didn't like it. If there would be a fight or something, he would

:05:06.:05:10.

be the first person to walk away. He was the nicest person I've ever

:05:10.:05:14.

met. The first person I'd think about when I'd wake up, the last

:05:14.:05:19.

person I'd speak to when I went to bed. He made you smile if you were

:05:19.:05:27.

feeling sad. Even though I was in Bristol and he was in London, I

:05:27.:05:31.

don't know, it kind of made things better because when we did see each

:05:31.:05:40.

other we did appreciate each other a lot more. On Saturday 2nd July,

:05:40.:05:44.

the St Paul's Carnival in Bristol was in full swing. Rico travelled

:05:44.:05:53.

down to see my and enjoy the festivities. Are you all right?

:05:53.:06:01.

so good to see you. So happy, my friends loved him. I'm going to go

:06:01.:06:08.

now. OK. You guys have fun. I'll give you a call later. I was saying,

:06:08.:06:13.

I'm going off with my friends and I will call you later and made. Any

:06:13.:06:18.

he planned to go out after. Rico spent the rest of the evening with

:06:18.:06:22.

a group of his friends, also in town for the carnival. Some of them

:06:22.:06:27.

had connections to a London gang. The whole group ended up at this

:06:27.:06:32.

pub in the eastern area of Bristol. It is here that the police think

:06:32.:06:39.

that trouble began. The pub had stayed open late for post carnival

:06:39.:06:43.

partygoers. But at around 3:40am, a confrontation broke out between two

:06:43.:06:52.

men, possibly members of the rival gangs. Rico didn't like the tense

:06:52.:06:57.

atmosphere in the pub and decided to leave. Shortly afterwards, a

:06:57.:07:02.

group of 16 men also left the pub and got into their cars. But they

:07:02.:07:09.

weren't going home. In convoy, they drive up Stapleton Road, past Rico

:07:09.:07:14.

and his friends and decide to circle the area, turning left into

:07:14.:07:20.

St Mark's Road. Minutes later, the sixth car convoy is back. They park

:07:20.:07:23.

up, blocking the entrance to Berwick Road, and some head on foot

:07:23.:07:30.

to where's Rico's group of friends are stood chatting. I remember

:07:30.:07:36.

calling him and setting, where are you now? I've called the taxi, it's

:07:36.:07:40.

on its way. He said, I'm coming. I said if you are not here soon I'm

:07:40.:07:47.

going to go to sleep. Then it kind of just cut out. As the group

:07:47.:07:51.

approaches, a shot is fired at them from the other side of the road.

:07:51.:08:01.
:08:01.:08:09.

Sparking a gun battle. Rico! Over An innocent passer-by gets hit in

:08:10.:08:19.

the leg. But the bullet that hits Rico is fatal. I thought that maybe

:08:19.:08:24.

he'd dropped his phone. I heard a kind of bank but it could have been

:08:24.:08:29.

the phone falling on the floor. He was speaking and then it was kind

:08:29.:08:34.

of, like... You know when you can't finish a sentence? Then it cut out

:08:34.:08:37.

and I thought he had dropped his own and the battery was broken,

:08:37.:08:41.

that's why I can't get through to him. I kept calling after and it

:08:41.:08:47.

just went straight to answer machine. I wished that the phone

:08:47.:08:51.

conversation we had was more... I don't know, a better last

:08:51.:08:56.

conversation. Rico was killed by a single bullet which hit the

:08:56.:09:01.

pavement and ricocheted up into the back of his head. He didn't stand a

:09:01.:09:07.

chance. Detective Superintendent at Sue Scott is now determined to find

:09:07.:09:12.

his killers. We know there were a lot of people around. It would have

:09:12.:09:16.

been very busy. The people in the street at the time would have seen

:09:16.:09:20.

gunmen firing lots of shots. They would have seen one of the gunmen

:09:20.:09:25.

zig-zagging up the road behind us. You think they remained in the area

:09:25.:09:29.

whilst the police and ambulance service are still here at the crime

:09:29.:09:33.

scene. That's right. One of those vehicles in the convoy was driving

:09:33.:09:36.

around the backstreets here at the same time the emergency services

:09:36.:09:43.

were desperately trying to save Rico's life. You think it gets

:09:43.:09:48.

easier but it doesn't. It gets a lot worse because now you are

:09:48.:09:53.

realising he is not there. You're just a missing him more and more.

:09:53.:09:57.

Every day it gets harder. I think the worst thing is not having

:09:57.:10:01.

someone that you can tell everything. I don't know, I feel

:10:01.:10:05.

like the main part of my life is missing, it isn't easily filled.

:10:05.:10:15.

It's changed all of us. It's like we are all broken. I am just peeing

:10:15.:10:20.

for anyone who knows anything to come forward. - that I am just

:10:20.:10:30.

begging for anyone who knows Clearly the family are devastated.

:10:30.:10:33.

It is very important to let people know that this was a totally

:10:33.:10:39.

innocent young man. Yes, Rico was not connected to gangs whatsoever.

:10:39.:10:44.

He was totally innocent. His family are devastated about this loss.

:10:44.:10:48.

lot of drama on the streets at night. There was this convoy of six

:10:48.:10:53.

cars, what more can you tell us? You can see the convoy is going in

:10:53.:10:59.

and around the area. It's from that convoy later on that two about --

:10:59.:11:04.

two of our gunmen have come from. We are interested in a dark blue

:11:04.:11:07.

Alfa-Romeo. During the incident, the front passenger window was shot

:11:07.:11:12.

out. We believe that between the third and 6th July that the window

:11:12.:11:17.

was replaced. They want to speak to the person who replaced that window.

:11:17.:11:20.

What do you know about the guns? There were three guns involved.

:11:20.:11:24.

Handguns. We know they are hidden somewhere and we want to find them.

:11:24.:11:28.

Please somebody phone in and tell us where we can find them. Lots of

:11:28.:11:31.

people were on the streets at night, presumably you are still trying to

:11:31.:11:36.

trace witnesses. We are. There are three key witnesses I'd like to

:11:36.:11:39.

trace who were in the coach house that night. One of which was a man

:11:39.:11:43.

who we can see you with a long- sleeved white shirt on. We like to

:11:43.:11:48.

speak to him. A man in a blue Adidas tracksuit. And the lady in a

:11:48.:11:51.

still photograph there. Any witnesses who might be thinking

:11:51.:11:54.

about phoning in, we understand you might be scared. There is a range

:11:54.:11:58.

of measures we can put in place to make sure that we can protect you,

:11:58.:12:01.

but I'd urge you to phone us. violence can make people worried

:12:02.:12:06.

but you can reassure them that you deal with them very sensibly. It

:12:06.:12:11.

you know anything, please do speak to the detectives here now. The

:12:11.:12:18.

number is on screen. You can call anonymously on the number on screen

old was wanted in connection with the murder of his father and the

:12:30.:12:36.

attempted murder of his mother, in Liverpool in 2002. He skipped bail

:12:36.:12:39.

in January 2003 and hasn't been seen since. This is an old photo of

:12:39.:12:43.

him but he will still have this Prom and scar under his nose as the

:12:43.:12:47.

result of a harelip. He should not be approached. Call the police if

:13:44.:13:49.

the website. If you know where they are, you can call the number on

:13:49.:13:59.
:13:59.:14:00.

It is time now for some of dates on cases we featured previously.

:14:00.:14:04.

start with news of an appeal from our last programme. The rape of a

:14:04.:14:07.

young woman who was trying to make her way home after a night out in

:14:07.:14:14.

Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire in July. Do you know where I can get a

:14:14.:14:20.

taxi from here? Just a few days after the broadcast, a 23-year-old

:14:20.:14:24.

man from Waltham Cross was arrested on suspicion of rape and is

:14:24.:14:28.

currently on police bail. We will keep you informed of how the case

:14:28.:14:33.

progresses. Next, a man we featured twice on the programme. This is

:14:33.:14:36.

Muhammad Ali eat, who officers from South Wales were keen to speak to

:14:36.:14:41.

in connection with the murder of teenager Amir Siddiqui in Cardiff

:14:41.:14:46.

in April 2010. Last month, he was located and arrested in India.

:14:46.:14:51.

Police are now seeking his extradition to the UK. And the

:14:51.:14:55.

latest on a case from a decade ago. A teenage couple were walking along

:14:55.:14:58.

the towpath in Salisbury when they were approached by a man who

:14:58.:15:01.

threatened them with a gun and subjected the young woman to a

:15:01.:15:05.

serious sexual assault. In September, a 57-year-old man from

:15:05.:15:08.

Salisbury was arrested and charged with false imprisonment and

:15:08.:15:12.

indecent assault, as well as firearms offences. He is due in

:15:12.:15:22.
:15:22.:15:24.

A very sad story, in which all of these items may hold the key to the

:15:24.:15:28.

death of a newborn baby, a little boy, whose body was found in

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:42.

Be very sad case, tell me more. very sad case indeed, a couple were

:15:42.:15:49.

walking their dog in Kirkham, around 2pm on the first October,

:15:49.:15:55.

and they found the body of a small child, a baby boy, in a Shireen.

:15:55.:16:01.

The shrimp is known as Spen Brook, off Car Lane. What did you know

:16:01.:16:07.

about how he died? We do not know a great deal. He is a full-term child,

:16:07.:16:13.

white, it was not premature. Because of the poor condition, we

:16:13.:16:17.

do not know a lot more, and that is why we are appealing for help.

:16:17.:16:22.

said it was items that would hold the key to how and why he died.

:16:23.:16:30.

Let's go through them. It is such a tiny think, a baby jacket. Yes,

:16:30.:16:36.

this is what he was wearing at the time. We have ascertained it is

:16:36.:16:42.

from ASDA. It was sold as part of the autumn/winter range in

:16:42.:16:51.

2008/2009. It has that cartoon character above the pocket. There

:16:51.:16:59.

was a been backed? Yes, near where he was found, there was a dustbin

:16:59.:17:05.

bag, Blackpool Council. Intertwined, two tiles, Adrian Renaissance style

:17:05.:17:14.

and a Union Jack towel. These items are common. Individually, they

:17:14.:17:20.

ought not -- they are not of great importance, but people could lead

:17:20.:17:26.

them together. It is the jigsaw. What is the other piece of the

:17:26.:17:33.

jigsaw? We found the remnants of a cardboard box. It is a shoe box. It

:17:33.:17:40.

is from Evans. It is quite large. It is these shoes, size five. If

:17:40.:17:44.

anybody can put them together with the other items, it is important

:17:44.:17:49.

they come forward. You do not know how it was that the baby came to be

:17:49.:17:55.

in deep stream? It could be a serious crime, but it is a tragedy,

:17:55.:18:00.

or whatever has happened. The mother is in need of help. We want

:18:01.:18:05.

her to come forward, and we will give her support. But we need to

:18:05.:18:12.

note what happened to that child. Maybe you are the mother, or the

:18:12.:18:20.

father. Did you see anything? If you would rather speak to female

:18:20.:18:29.

officers, just ask. Or, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously. It

:18:30.:18:36.

is time for some CCTV. We start in Liverpool.

:18:36.:18:41.

It is the early hours of Tuesday morning in April at a supermarket

:18:41.:18:46.

in Bootle. A security guard weights. Little does he know that outside

:18:46.:18:51.

his colleague has been ambushed. The attackers forced their way into

:18:51.:18:56.

the vault, pulling the other got with them. They threatened the

:18:56.:19:02.

guards with a gun and a piece of wood. They then made off with

:19:02.:19:06.

several thousand pounds. You cannot see their faces, but somebody knows

:19:06.:19:15.

two they are. -- who they are. More footage from April, this time, in a

:19:16.:19:22.

bog in Warrington. It is just after midnight. One man takes offence as

:19:22.:19:27.

a fellow punter tries to get past him. Without saying a word, he had

:19:27.:19:37.
:19:37.:19:38.

put him. The victim needed stitches and is permanently stuck -- Scott.

:19:38.:19:46.

Police name him. -- police named him. Inside the cancer research

:19:46.:19:50.

charity shop in North Yorkshire, during the early hours of Thursday

:19:50.:19:56.

in May, a man wearing a paper suit has broken in. He is not looking

:19:56.:20:01.

for a bargain or to make a donation. He clearly likes a rummage. Unlike

:20:01.:20:09.

his torch, he is not too bright. Hello! He stole money and watches

:20:09.:20:16.

donated to support a charity. Disgusting. Tell us who he is.

:20:16.:20:22.

That footage is all on the website, and if you know who any of them are,

:20:22.:20:32.
:20:32.:20:34.

It's horrible murder that you cannot fail to have heard about,

:20:34.:20:39.

July the Yates, she was a landscape architect who lived happily in

:20:39.:20:44.

Bristol, with her boyfriend. That was until just before Christmas,

:20:44.:20:48.

when she was strangled in her flat by her neighbour, Vincent Tabak

:20:48.:20:52.

couple stop in the light of his conviction, we can now bring you

:20:52.:20:56.

the full story of what happened. And for the first time, we could

:20:56.:21:06.
:21:06.:21:31.

The disappearance of Joanna Yeates just a week before Christmas

:21:31.:21:41.

devastated the family. She had a brightness about her. She was

:21:41.:21:47.

always very happy-go-lucky, she always had time for everyone.

:21:47.:21:55.

liked outdoor things, outdoor life. She was going to be a real success.

:21:55.:22:00.

She had sport, interests, a great boyfriend, everything was there.

:22:00.:22:05.

They had been going out for two years, and they were coming home

:22:05.:22:15.
:22:15.:22:19.

for Christmas? Yes, we were excited about it. She was making mince pies.

:22:19.:22:27.

Time has just stopped from that night. She was 25 and had

:22:27.:22:32.

everything going for her. She was beautiful, talented, and has

:22:32.:22:36.

settled in Bristol, up working as a landscape architect. She was living

:22:36.:22:41.

happily with her boyfriend until, up one night in December, when she

:22:41.:22:51.
:22:51.:22:54.

The investigation began on 19th December, when police received a

:22:54.:22:59.

call from her boyfriend. On the Sunday evening, he returned from

:22:59.:23:05.

his weekend away in Sheffield. There was no trace of her in the

:23:05.:23:10.

flat. Gradually, he started to piece things together that he

:23:10.:23:14.

thought were unusual. When he called her number, he could hear

:23:14.:23:19.

her telephone ringing in the flat. As time progressed, he got

:23:19.:23:25.

increasingly concerned. He eventually phoned the police.

:23:25.:23:29.

circumstances as they were reported, as I read them, they automatically

:23:29.:23:34.

lead me to feel that, with this missing person, there was something

:23:34.:23:42.

wrong. A missing persons inquiry was launched, detectives were

:23:42.:23:46.

looking for anything that might point them towards her. They had

:23:46.:23:51.

very little to go on. Which of exhausting every opportunity and

:23:51.:23:57.

every resource to find her. We need some help. Inside the flat, there

:23:58.:24:02.

were a few potential leads. One of them was a Tesco receipt for a

:24:02.:24:05.

pizza she had bought on the Friday night, two days earlier. The

:24:06.:24:10.

receipt had been left in the living room, but there was no sign of the

:24:10.:24:14.

pizza or the packaging. The police were convinced finding the Pizza

:24:14.:24:24.
:24:24.:24:29.

could lead them closer to her, so Friday night, 6:00pm. She met

:24:29.:24:34.

friends for drinks at a pub on Pond Street. They remember her that

:24:34.:24:41.

night as her usual happy self. On the way home, she called her best

:24:41.:24:48.

friend and arranged to meet up on Christmas Eve. She then popped into

:24:48.:24:53.

a Waitrose supermarket, an off- licence and a Tesco Express, where

:24:53.:25:03.
:25:03.:25:12.

This is the last ever recorded What happened when she got home

:25:12.:25:22.
:25:22.:25:26.

These huge police search was under way. The Bristol Downs and the Avon

:25:26.:25:31.

gorge were scoured for clues. Further appeals were made. By now,

:25:31.:25:36.

she had been missing for over a week. The investigation was about

:25:36.:25:45.

to change course. It is a bit cold. It is lovely. The police received a

:25:45.:25:50.

call from a couple walking their dog. Three miles from her flat.

:25:50.:25:56.

They had spotted part of a body in the snow. It was her, fully clothed,

:25:56.:26:04.

and curled up on her side. The heavy snowfall meant she was barely

:26:04.:26:10.

visible, and she had lain unseen for several days. She had been left

:26:10.:26:18.

on the side of the road. Her body, now frozen. It was Christmas Day.

:26:18.:26:22.

She was dumped like a piece of garbage. That is where my daughter

:26:22.:26:30.

was last. I was thinking, why? Why? Why? There seemed to be no reason

:26:30.:26:40.
:26:40.:26:43.

After her family identified the body, a post mortem began.

:26:43.:26:49.

cause of her death was manual strangulation. There was evidence

:26:49.:26:54.

that there had been some sign of a struggle. Crucially, they also

:26:54.:27:00.

found tiny traces of DNA on her party, belonging to someone else. -

:27:00.:27:06.

- on her body. The investigation into Joanna Yeates is now a murder

:27:06.:27:11.

investigation. She had been found fully-clothed, except for a soccer

:27:11.:27:15.

that was missing. The police hoped that recovering it, along with the

:27:15.:27:20.

pizza, could provide some answers. DB is captivated the nation.

:27:20.:27:30.
:27:30.:27:36.

police say a body found yesterday... Denied she went missing, witnesses

:27:36.:27:41.

had heard screams in the area around her flat at -- on the night.

:27:41.:27:48.

They were of interest, because it helped us to a time when the

:27:48.:27:55.

incident had happened, which resulted in her death. But when

:27:55.:27:59.

detectives had not on the door of her immediate neighbour, Dutch

:27:59.:28:06.

national Vincent Tabak, he claimed he had not seen or heard anything.

:28:06.:28:12.

It was at 4pm on the Monday morning, when two police officers knocked on

:28:12.:28:17.

the door of the second flat. He did not have any information to provide

:28:17.:28:23.

us concerning her whereabouts. flat was later searched, but police

:28:23.:28:28.

found nothing. Seemingly out of the picture, he headed to the

:28:28.:28:33.

Netherlands with his girlfriend for new year. Their attention was drawn

:28:33.:28:38.

to another of her neighbours, her landlord. He was one of the few

:28:38.:28:48.
:28:48.:28:50.

people with keys to her flat. His Five days after her body was

:28:50.:28:56.

recovered, he was arrested. The tabloid press went into overdrive.

:28:56.:29:01.

Speculation about his supposed involvement was rife. But amazingly,

:29:01.:29:06.

just three hours after his arrest, an officer received a call from

:29:06.:29:11.

Vincent Tabak in the Netherlands, claiming to have new information.

:29:11.:29:16.

He could remember that Christopher Jefferies' car had been parked in a

:29:16.:29:21.

particular position the evening before she went missing, and the

:29:21.:29:31.
:29:31.:29:33.

next morning, the car was facing in Police were now questioning

:29:33.:29:37.

Christopher Jefferies. The police then sent a team out to meet

:29:37.:29:42.

Vincent Tabak out to Amsterdam, but his version of events seemed

:29:42.:29:47.

confused. There were details of Vincent's account that were

:29:47.:29:53.

concerning me. He was made in some areas, he was over interested in

:29:53.:29:57.

other areas, particularly around our forensic examination. There

:29:57.:30:03.

were things in his account that just didn't sound right to Timmy.

:30:03.:30:09.

Then his reluctance to give his DNA at the end of the process again, it

:30:09.:30:15.

obviously started to ring some alarm bells. Tabak's statement was

:30:15.:30:20.

a smokescreen. The landlord was entirely innocent. When police

:30:21.:30:25.

checked Christobel Jeffrey's' DNA against the sample found on Jo's

:30:25.:30:35.
:30:35.:30:36.

body, there was no match. He was As the investigation gathered

momentum, police launched a Facebook campaign and turned to

:30:41.:30:44.

Crimewatch. They've been painstakingly reconstructing every

:30:44.:30:51.

last detail. As our team began to film an appeal, the press descended.

:30:51.:30:59.

Within hours, police received over 300 new course. -- new course. Then,

:30:59.:31:03.

shortly before the reconstruction was due to air, they made a

:31:03.:31:07.

dramatic breakthrough. Forensic scientists had spent weeks

:31:07.:31:12.

enhancing the Tiny DNA sample found on Jo's body, enabling them to

:31:13.:31:17.

establish a link to Vincent Tabak. The detective's suspicions were

:31:18.:31:24.

being confirmed. I had a strong gut feeling that something wasn't right.

:31:24.:31:27.

Tabak was arrested and his possessions seized. They included

:31:27.:31:34.

his car, his mobile and his laptop. The secrets they contained would be

:31:34.:31:37.

hard for Tabak to explain away. They found that six days before her

:31:37.:31:43.

body was discovered, Tabak had been using Google street view. He was

:31:43.:31:49.

looking at Longwood Lane and in particular at the bit of Longwood

:31:49.:31:54.

Lane where he'd left Jo's body. There is only one person in the

:31:54.:31:59.

world and it -- who knew where Jo was, and that was Vincent Tabak.

:31:59.:32:02.

Forensics are examined his car for evidence. What they discovered

:32:03.:32:07.

confirmed what happened that night. In the boot of the car we were able

:32:07.:32:15.

to find minute traces of blood that was a match back to Joanna Yeates.

:32:15.:32:20.

Be evidence was damning. Tabak, the man next door, was charged with

:32:20.:32:25.

murder. Despite his refusal to answer any questions, detectives

:32:25.:32:29.

now had a better picture of what happened to Jo on the night she

:32:29.:32:39.
:32:39.:32:59.

Jo was overpowered by 6 ft 4 Tabak, who gripped her throat, strangling

:32:59.:33:05.

her to death. That night he bundled her body into his boat and went

:33:05.:33:11.

looking for a place to discard it. -- into his car boot. He even

:33:11.:33:14.

stopped at an ASDA supermarket to text his girlfriend, telling her

:33:14.:33:22.

that he was bored. He in fact bought crisps, beer and rock salt

:33:22.:33:27.

while Jo's body lay in his car boot. The whole exercise an elaborate

:33:27.:33:37.
:33:37.:34:03.

You know these birds which run along the ground working so hard

:34:03.:34:07.

and then they take to the Air Flying butt macro that to me is my

:34:07.:34:11.

daughter. She'd just taken off and somebody shot her down. She's been

:34:11.:34:17.

stolen from us but she had her life stolen from her. Nearly three weeks

:34:17.:34:22.

after his arrest, Vincent Tabak confessed to a prison chaplain that

:34:22.:34:29.

he had killed Jo Yeates. He then pleaded guilty to manslaughter. But

:34:29.:34:34.

the police were convinced he was guilty of murder. And so last month

:34:34.:34:38.

he went to trial at Bristol Crown Court. Tabak claimed he'd made a

:34:38.:34:43.

pass at Jo, causing her to scream. While trying to silence her he'd

:34:43.:34:47.

accidentally strangled her to death. But the prosecution believe the

:34:47.:34:52.

attack was intentional and sexually motivated. The trial run for 13

:34:52.:34:59.

days with Tabak failing to answer 80 questions. Then, after almost 14

:34:59.:35:04.

hours of deliberation, the jury returned their verdict. Vincent

:35:04.:35:13.

Tabak was guilty of murder. grieve because I miss her but she

:35:13.:35:16.

has missed so much as well. Getting married, children, all of these

:35:16.:35:22.

type of things... I note that is what she would have wanted in the

:35:22.:35:32.
:35:32.:35:35.

future. Nothing will replace my Such a tragedy. The details that

:35:35.:35:39.

have come out since the trial finished are really shocking.

:35:39.:35:43.

Sickening. Tabak was obsessed with violent pornography, specifically

:35:43.:35:48.

films showing women being choked during sex. He would watch those

:35:48.:35:52.

films on the morning he killed Jo and in the days afterwards he was

:35:52.:35:55.

flicking continuously between reports of how the police

:35:55.:35:58.

investigation was progressing and those pornographic sites. He used

:35:58.:36:02.

prostitutes when he was away on business trips, and prosecutors

:36:02.:36:06.

believe he crossed the line from of servitor perpetrator. I and yet

:36:06.:36:10.

none of that was heard at the trial. No, it was inadmissible. He

:36:10.:36:15.

portrayed himself as being sexually naive. He said he had killed Jo by

:36:15.:36:22.

accident, even suggested she had been flirtatious. It was grotesque.

:36:22.:36:27.

It was cold and calculating. He spent weeks researching the details

:36:27.:36:30.

between murder and manslaughter. And he didn't give a dam about

:36:30.:36:33.

putting the family through that harrowing trial, just like he

:36:33.:36:37.

didn't care about hiding the body and the agonies that caused. It was

:36:37.:36:40.

all about him and thankfully the jury saw through it. What about the

:36:40.:36:45.

moment when he showed the flash of arrogance? He was being too clever.

:36:45.:36:49.

That phone call he didn't have to make, trying to frame Christopher

:36:49.:36:54.

Jefferies. It unravelled after that. That led them to the DNA that would

:36:54.:36:59.

corner him. But it was a difficult investigation. After the trial,

:36:59.:37:02.

Christopher Jefferies said the police wasted time and resources on

:37:02.:37:07.

him that should have been focused elsewhere. And at the trial, Tabak

:37:07.:37:13.

got life plus 20 years. Yes. Jo's parents said they hoped Tabak's

:37:13.:37:16.

time in prison would be a living hell. They said they would never

:37:16.:37:24.

get over it. They just miss her. Still to come tonight, the cyclist

:37:24.:37:30.

who stepped in to stop this man. He is suspected of trying to rape a

:37:30.:37:33.

young woman in Brighton. I would absolutely do it again, that's what

:37:33.:37:36.

everyone should do in that situation. I didn't think twice and

:37:36.:37:42.

I don't see why anyone would. we will hear from the 14-year-old

:37:42.:37:45.

boy who was blasted in both legs with a shotgun as he answered his

:37:45.:37:55.
:37:55.:37:58.

I looked down at my leg and saw the holes in my trousers. It was kind

:37:58.:38:05.

of horrific. And can you identify this man? Thought to have planted

:38:05.:38:11.

suspect devices in Canterbury. That is coming up soon. First, Matthew

:38:11.:38:15.

has the latest on what's been happening on the phones. Let's

:38:15.:38:20.

start off by interrupting Sue, who is in charge of the Rico Gordon

:38:20.:38:24.

investigation. You've had some good calls coming in as a yes, one

:38:24.:38:28.

particular is of interest. identified as one of the images on

:38:28.:38:31.

the CCTV. But I'd really like the name of all three of the people we

:38:31.:38:36.

saw. Have you had names so far? have had one name, it looks like we

:38:36.:38:40.

could have the right identity for that individual. That is what you

:38:40.:38:45.

wanted, names. What about vans and cars? Nothing on that, but we've

:38:45.:38:48.

also had some other names put forward by someone who didn't give

:38:48.:38:52.

their name. I would urge them to call back, we would like to speak

:38:52.:38:57.

to them. If that was you calling, please call us, we're waiting for

:38:57.:39:00.

the call. Let's get more on the sad case of the baby's body found in

:39:00.:39:10.
:39:10.:39:11.

Lancashire. Neil, what is coming? The items aren't being specifically

:39:11.:39:16.

linked, but I need someone to put those items together. You are

:39:16.:39:20.

desperate for bad weather to come forward. Yes, we want the mother to

:39:20.:39:24.

come forward. I know it's difficult but I believe you really need our

:39:24.:39:28.

help. Come forward tonight and tell us what happened to your child. We

:39:28.:39:38.

Time for some more wanted faces. First is Dwayne Anthony Mullings.

:39:38.:39:43.

Earlier this year he was convicted of raping a woman in 2004, but he

:39:43.:39:45.

failed to turn up at Sheffield Crown Court and was sentenced to

:39:45.:39:50.

six years in his absence. 35 year- old Mullings, who has a street name

:39:50.:39:55.

of Ribsey, is originally from Jamaica but has links to Sheffield

:39:55.:40:04.

and Doncaster. This is Imran Shaukat, police want to speak to

:40:04.:40:09.

the 26-year-old in connection with a fatal hit and run accident. He

:40:09.:40:12.

has the two faint birthmarks on the side of his face and has links to

:40:12.:40:19.

Luton, London and Manchester. Lagat this. This is 56-year-old Robert

:40:19.:40:26.

Stevens, otherwise known as Robert Melias, rubbing a bookmaker's at

:40:26.:40:30.

knifepoint in September in A bath. Robert Stevens has connections

:40:30.:40:34.

across the West Country and has various tattoos including a panther

:40:34.:40:39.

and the word city on his left arm and the letters B.O.B on his right

:40:39.:40:45.

hand. Lastly his Nael Abdul Khaliq. Police would like to talk to the

:40:45.:40:49.

30-year-old in connection with two burglaries and a robbery or

:40:49.:40:54.

committed in west London. He is known by the street name of Tiny.

:40:54.:40:59.

If you recognise any of them you can call us or Texas at the numbers

:40:59.:41:09.
:41:09.:41:12.

Take a moment to take a look at this image here. Police are

:41:12.:41:16.

confident that this man would have raped a young woman in Brighton if

:41:16.:41:21.

it hadn't been for the actions of a passing cyclist who came to her aid.

:41:22.:41:24.

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Sloan from Surrey and Sussex crime

:41:24.:41:30.

team is here to explain more. What happened? The victim had been out

:41:30.:41:36.

for the evening with her family and was on her way home, along Edward

:41:36.:41:41.

Street in Ryton, near the American Express building. - back in

:41:41.:41:45.

Brighton. She walked along the road and became aware of someone behind

:41:45.:41:49.

her. They grabbed her. It fell to her like was a case of mistaken

:41:49.:41:53.

identity, the chap pulled away and she walked on up the road. It was

:41:53.:41:57.

about two minutes later that he attacked her and pushed her to the

:41:57.:42:01.

ground and sexually assaulted her. Just to get this right, it's a busy

:42:01.:42:08.

place, a busy city centre. Yes, it was a brazen attack, a well it

:42:08.:42:14.

dual-carriageway road. Fortunately, our brave and... The victim acted

:42:14.:42:18.

in a dignified fashion and screamed and fought. She was heard by a

:42:18.:42:22.

passing cyclist. I have no doubt that if it hadn't been for the

:42:22.:42:24.

actions of the cyclist she would have been subjected to a much worse

:42:24.:42:32.

ordeal. This bloke is a bit of a key role. He also was pretty modest.

:42:32.:42:36.

It was just that moment. It was quite lucky timing wise that I

:42:36.:42:40.

turned up when I did. I chased after him to try and get him to

:42:40.:42:45.

stop. Then he began to chase the way. I thought about following him

:42:45.:42:49.

but I went back to the victim because she was on her own in the

:42:49.:42:54.

dark. Despicable, really. The guy is horrible. What do you say about

:42:54.:42:58.

people like that? I would absolutely do it again, that's what

:42:58.:43:01.

everyone should do in that situation. I didn't think twice and

:43:01.:43:06.

I don't see why anyone would. Despicable is the word. Good CCTV,

:43:06.:43:11.

just give us a bit more detail. can clearly see the offender. The

:43:11.:43:16.

CCTV cameras are very close to the scene. You can see that he is

:43:16.:43:21.

wearing white trainers, he has got some genes on with very distinctive

:43:21.:43:25.

Brading around the pockets and a black leather style type jacket and

:43:25.:43:31.

a very distinctive hat, a trilby hat. He actually went back to pick

:43:31.:43:37.

that up when he was being chased off by the cyclist. As you say, the

:43:37.:43:41.

woman has been very brave, very dignified. A terrible thing that

:43:41.:43:46.

happened. She is very keen that this man is caught. I don't know

:43:46.:43:50.

why he did it, what led him to do what he did. I can't know he's not

:43:50.:43:53.

going to do it again. I don't think anyone else should have to go

:43:53.:43:58.

through that. I would just like to know why. I want to know why he

:43:58.:44:04.

chose that night, what led up to it and why he chose me? There are a

:44:04.:44:08.

lot of questions I'd like to get answers to. The next person might

:44:08.:44:13.

not be so lucky. A brave woman. Thank you for joining us this

:44:13.:44:18.

evening. If you recognise the man that we saw there then it is time

:44:18.:44:23.

to pick up the phone tonight. If you have been a victim of crime

:44:23.:44:33.
:44:33.:44:39.

then you can call the victim We start now in Bath.

:44:40.:44:46.

A group of lads is gathered outside this takeaway in May. It seems

:44:46.:44:49.

friendly, and tell the man in the body warmer start getting

:44:49.:44:54.

aggressive. Suddenly, he punches the man in the blue shirt, knocking

:44:54.:45:01.

him over the railings and into the road, before striding off. This man

:45:01.:45:09.

broke somebody's jaw, please name him. This is what I call brazen.

:45:09.:45:14.

This man is looking at expensive diamond rings in King's Lynn in

:45:14.:45:19.

Norfolk. He asks the shop assistant to show him a variety of bespoke

:45:19.:45:24.

pieces, before snatching one and running out of the shop. This is

:45:25.:45:34.
:45:35.:45:35.

the ring he took, and it Tish -- it is worth just shy of 100 grand.

On an evening in March, Khalil Hogan went to answer a knock at his

:45:52.:45:58.

front door in High Wycombe. But as he opened a door, he was shot twice

:45:58.:46:08.
:46:08.:46:28.

in the legs by a complete stranger, Is that you? Yes. He is my first

:46:28.:46:36.

grandson. As a person, he is very nice. He is really quiet. Sometimes,

:46:36.:46:40.

he will be in the room, you would not know he was there. I live with

:46:40.:46:45.

my grandmother and my sister and her boyfriend in High Wycombe. I

:46:45.:46:51.

have lived here for most of my life. He lives for sport. He plays

:46:51.:46:56.

football, rugby, rounders. thing people always talk about his

sport, because they know I am very active. They know I like to play

sport or of the time. I can play a wide range, but I like football the

:47:06.:47:14.

most. On the night of the shooting, I came home from work, what kind

:47:14.:47:24.

normally do, and at 8pm, I left him, his sister and her boyfriend, to go

:47:24.:47:28.

to a prayer meeting. Normally, I like to know that there is somebody

:47:28.:47:33.

here with him. That evening, I was on the computer, talking to my

:47:33.:47:39.

friend on Facebook, and playing some games, just to relax, while my

:47:39.:47:49.
:47:49.:48:12.

sister was watching TV. A normal Can you get that, please? There was

:48:12.:48:21.

a knock-on the door, and my sister asked me to get it. So why did.

:48:21.:48:31.
:48:31.:48:57.

Hello? Police? Can I have an I looked at my leg, and I saw the

:48:57.:49:02.

holes in my trousers. There was blood dripping from my legs, to the

:49:02.:49:12.
:49:12.:49:12.

floor. It was horrific. I got to the end of the road and I saw all

:49:12.:49:17.

of these police cars. The police had guns. I ask what had happened,

:49:17.:49:24.

and they told me. I have woken up in a hospital bed with loads of

:49:24.:49:29.

doctors and a few nurses standing around me. There was a gaping hole

:49:29.:49:38.

in his right leg. The flats have -- flesh was smashed up. I spent two

:49:38.:49:43.

weeks in hospital, I had four operations. They had taken out all

:49:43.:49:49.

of the pellets from my leg. There were a lot of pellets. The doctors

:49:49.:49:53.

were telling me that they were not sure if I would be able to walk

:49:53.:49:58.

again. They thought I might have been paralysed. It should never

:49:58.:50:03.

have happened. He is just an innocent boy. It was frightening

:50:03.:50:09.

for him. He went through a lot of pain and suffering, for nothing.

:50:09.:50:13.

kept going over it in my head, I did not know why somebody would do

:50:13.:50:18.

something like this to me, because I have always been quiet, I never

:50:19.:50:22.

got into much trouble, so I do not really understand why trouble has

:50:22.:50:32.

come to me. We are joined by Joe Kidman. A lot

:50:32.:50:36.

of pain and suffering, that is for sure. What reason could there have

:50:36.:50:43.

been? All of our inquiries have found no positive reason why

:50:43.:50:48.

anybody in that house should have been attacked. This could be a case

:50:48.:50:54.

of mistaken identity. What are you looking for? We need the help of

:50:54.:51:03.

the local community, in particular, we have got some CCTV that has not

:51:03.:51:08.

previously been released, and that shows two people were involved in

:51:08.:51:12.

the shooting. We want Crimewatch viewers to help us to identify them.

:51:12.:51:21.

Let's take a look at them. What are people seeing here? This is a few

:51:21.:51:26.

moments before the attack. Fate of going towards his home. The first

:51:26.:51:30.

one was carrying a shotgun, and a minute or so later, running back

:51:30.:51:35.

from where they came from. You are interested in what one of them was

:51:35.:51:43.

wearing? Yes, this first man. On his docker jacket, it appears that

:51:43.:51:50.

there is a rectangular logo, and towards the centre, something that

:51:50.:51:54.

reflects the light even more. is quite distinctive. People can

:51:54.:52:01.

look at that on the website. This boy has made good progress. Yes, I

:52:01.:52:07.

am pleased to say that, despite the injuries, he has gone back to

:52:07.:52:12.

school, and he is playing football again. We wish him all the very

:52:12.:52:21.

best. If you know anything, please call. It is time for some more news

:52:21.:52:25.

on previous appeals. We start with the case we featured

:52:25.:52:30.

five years ago, the rape of a woman, who became separated from her

:52:30.:52:35.

friends in Bromley. We showed you this CCTV of a man police believe

:52:35.:52:39.

to be responsible. Thanks to a breakthrough, the attacker was

:52:39.:52:45.

identified as Cheslin Campher. Two weeks ago, he was given an

:52:45.:52:49.

indeterminate prison sentence. He will serve at least four and a half

:52:49.:52:54.

years, and he will be deported back to South Africa when he is released.

:52:55.:53:01.

You might recognise this man. He was a wanted face on the last show.

:53:01.:53:05.

He is Mohammed Bashiri, he tried to blackmail a pensioner after per

:53:05.:53:11.

lottery winnings. He was located, and he is now serving at least two

:53:11.:53:16.

years in prison. Finally, this CCTV of an attack

:53:16.:53:21.

which took place outside the Eastside Pub in Essex last year,

:53:21.:53:26.

which we appealed about last November. It shows a Dortmund being

:53:26.:53:30.

slashed across the face with a weapon. He needed 50 stitches. The

:53:30.:53:36.

man responsible was identified as Lennox Richards from Barkingside.

:53:36.:53:42.

In August, he was sentenced to five years for GBH.

:53:42.:53:47.

We have got an unusual case in which two suspect devices were

:53:47.:53:51.

planted in Canterbury, including one left in the baby-changing unit

:53:51.:54:01.
:54:01.:54:03.

of the Marks and Spencers. An unusual case, tell me more. It was

:54:03.:54:07.

4:20pm on 26th August, the bank holiday weekend. We received a call

:54:07.:54:13.

that there was a suspect device on the railway line in Canterbury.

:54:13.:54:17.

While we were investigating, the fire alarm activated in the baby-

:54:18.:54:22.

changing room of Marks & Spencer has in the Whitefriars shopping

:54:22.:54:28.

centre. We investigated, and that was a suspect device that had

:54:28.:54:33.

activated, issuing a thick smoke, causing distress to shoppers.

:54:33.:54:37.

have brought us pictures of these devices. Quite complex looking

:54:37.:54:43.

things. This was found by the railway line. Pretty terrifying.

:54:43.:54:47.

You said there was thick smoke in Marks & Spencer us. This is what

:54:48.:54:56.

was left, the small dispose of -- explosives. We are linking the

:54:56.:55:02.

incidents. We regard this as an incident carried out by one group.

:55:02.:55:07.

The motive is still a mystery. Nobody has claimed responsibility,

:55:07.:55:13.

which is unusual. Clearly, their plan was designed to cause maximum

:55:13.:55:17.

disruption to the authorities and the public of Canterbury. You have

:55:17.:55:24.

got some interesting CCTV. What are we watching? We are looking at the

:55:24.:55:29.

man we believe placed the device in Marks & Spencer as in Canterbury.

:55:29.:55:35.

You see him in the store, he spends 15 minutes there, he places the

:55:35.:55:38.

device and he leaves, almost as soon as he exits the store, the

:55:38.:55:43.

device activates, filling the store with smoke. He appears to be

:55:43.:55:47.

dressed as a cyclist. We do have evidence he got around Canterbury

:55:47.:55:52.

on a push bike. He was walking with great purpose. You think he was

:55:52.:55:58.

working as part of 18? At least three mobile phones were reduced on

:55:58.:56:02.

the day of the offence, to communicate between each other.

:56:02.:56:07.

They also use them to contact the media and Kent Police, and claimed

:56:08.:56:13.

that they had found the device. We have some footage that I would like

:56:13.:56:19.

help from the viewers with, which is footage of three women, who

:56:19.:56:23.

purchased the telephones in London, two weeks before the defence, on

:56:23.:56:30.

14th August. That is interesting. Nobody was hurt, but you are taking

:56:30.:56:36.

this seriously. Why? It was so organised, so meticulous, and the

:56:36.:56:41.

devices were clearly designed to scare people. Do you recognise any

:56:42.:56:48.

of those people? We urgently need to hear from you tonight. Time for

:56:48.:56:53.

a quick blast update. We are getting some good

:56:53.:56:58.

information on the Rico Gordon murder. The lad called in the

:56:58.:57:02.

crossfire, innocent. Several courts have given names to possible band

:57:02.:57:07.

members. And names for one of the witnesses. We need that person to

:57:07.:57:13.

come forward. We are getting calls about the baby jacket. We do not

:57:13.:57:16.

need any more information, we know where it is from, we just need to

:57:16.:57:22.

link it to the baby boy. That is everything for now. You can

:57:22.:57:28.

view all of the reconstructions, the CCTV, online, and you can do it

:57:28.:57:32.

on your smartphone. Just log on to the website. The phone lines stay

:57:32.:57:36.

open until midnight tomorrow, so there is still plenty of time to

:57:36.:57:42.

Detectives from across the UK appeal for help in solving some of the UK's biggest cases.
