Tonight: Two young brothers fleeing for their lives but only one of

:00:09.:00:14.

them would make it. My phone rang and it was my youngest son and I

:00:14.:00:19.

couldn't understand what he was saying because he was just like

:00:19.:00:24.

screaming down the phone. Then he said, "Negus has been stabbed."

:00:24.:00:34.
:00:34.:00:52.

need to know who killed 15-year-old Hello. Welcome to Crimewatch. We

:00:52.:00:57.

are live for the next hour with the studio full of detectives from all

:00:57.:01:01.

over the UK working together and ready to take your calls on

:01:01.:01:04.

tonight's cases. We will have more on the murder of 15-year-old Negus

:01:04.:01:10.

McClean very soon. First, let's take a preview of our other appeals.

:01:10.:01:13.

We have the 66-year-old businesswoman who was attacked and

:01:13.:01:19.

thrown down the stairs by a knife- wielding burglar. I could hear his

:01:19.:01:26.

footsteps coming behind me. I thought I was going to die. I was

:01:26.:01:32.

fighting for my life. And 25 years after teenager Elaine Doyle was

:01:32.:01:37.

strangled, yards from her home in Greenock, her father is still

:01:37.:01:42.

determined to find her killer. would like to put a face to that

:01:42.:01:50.

person, who he is, why he would need to take Elaine's life. It

:01:50.:01:55.

doesn't get any easier. But we will never give up.

:01:55.:01:59.

We also need to know who attacked this young woman in Rochdale just

:01:59.:02:04.

moments after these images were taken? She was left with severe

:02:04.:02:07.

head injuries and bizarrely her assailants took her clothes and

:02:07.:02:11.

then they dressed her in this nightie. Do you recognise it? We

:02:11.:02:15.

have also some great news on previous cases including two

:02:15.:02:21.

convictions for murder and Rav is here with his wanted faces and CCTV.

:02:21.:02:24.

Tonight's faces include people wanted for rape, GBH and theft,

:02:24.:02:29.

plus I have plenty of CCTV including this lot of armed robbers

:02:29.:02:35.

losing their loot out of the back of their getaway car.

:02:35.:02:40.

Matthew, what have you got for us? It is the story of how police

:02:40.:02:44.

caught up with John Cooper, a labourer, who in May, was found

:02:44.:02:50.

guilty of two double murders in Pembrokeshire in the 1980s. He

:02:50.:02:53.

committed dozens of other offences including violent burglaries and

:02:53.:03:03.
:03:03.:03:05.

rape all while protesting his And clap your eyes on this lot. A

:03:05.:03:11.

fine collection of jewellery worth �1 million. It's all been recovered

:03:11.:03:15.

from a single modest house and if any of it is yours, we would like

:03:15.:03:22.

to hear from you. But we begin with the murder of 15-year-old Negus

:03:22.:03:28.

McClean in Edmonton in North London. He's one of the sixteen age victims

:03:28.:03:38.
:03:38.:03:42.

of knife crime already in London this year. Behind that statistic is

:03:42.:03:47.

what happened... You can't do this to me, man. Negus, wake up, please.

:03:47.:03:52.

It is a terrible thing to have inside your head to think that is

:03:52.:03:58.

how your child died. I have no words to express how it feels to

:03:58.:04:08.
:04:08.:04:14.

It's an all-too familiar story in many parts of Britain, young men

:04:14.:04:18.

often no more than boys being killed by their peers. But this

:04:18.:04:23.

time the true terror of these attacks has been captured on camera

:04:23.:04:30.

as a brutal gang intent on violence take to the streets. All right,

:04:30.:04:33.

boys? For Ingrid McClean and her children, Sunday April 10th had

:04:33.:04:38.

been much like any other. Ingrid was meeting her sister for lunch

:04:38.:04:41.

while her 15-year-old son Negus and his younger brother were planning

:04:41.:04:46.

to meet up with friends. They were more friends than brothers.

:04:46.:04:49.

Sometimes they say you can't choose your family but they would have

:04:49.:04:56.

chosen one another without a doubt. To his younger brother, he was

:04:56.:05:00.

everything that a brother, if you look in the dictionary what

:05:00.:05:05.

"brother" means that is what he was to his younger brother. They set

:05:05.:05:11.

off together towards the local park. Their route taking them past

:05:11.:05:18.

Hertford Road in Edmonton. But little did they know that a violent

:05:18.:05:28.

gang of youths was circling the area just a few hundred yards away.

:05:28.:05:32.

As Negus and his brother arrived here at the corner of Hertford Road

:05:32.:05:41.

and Bounces Road they came face to face with the gang. Get him! Get

:05:41.:05:49.

him! CCTV captures the moment of panic when Negus and his friends

:05:49.:05:53.

began to cycle for their lives. The gang chased after them down Bounces

:05:53.:05:58.

Road. By the time they reached Westminster Road Negus's friends

:05:58.:06:01.

managed to escape but his brother is still with him. Negus told him

:06:01.:06:07.

to keep running while he stood up to face the gang alone. Telling his

:06:07.:06:13.

brother to run and just go is him, he, that is just him. He wouldn't

:06:13.:06:15.

have thought twice about himself. He would have thought about

:06:15.:06:21.

protecting his brother. Once Negus had been isolated, the onslaught of

:06:21.:06:26.

violence began. Some in the group beat him with metal poles and one

:06:26.:06:31.

of them had a knife. He began stabbing Negus in the legs and

:06:31.:06:35.

stomach. The attack lasted less than a minute but the knife was

:06:35.:06:40.

used with such force that the blade snapped off inside his body.

:06:40.:06:47.

phone rang and it was my youngest son. I couldn't understand what he

:06:47.:06:50.

was saying because he was like screaming down the phone. Then he

:06:50.:06:58.

said, "Negus has been stabbed." Sorry. Suddenly, everyone started

:06:58.:07:03.

ringing my phone, all his friends started ringing my phone, I

:07:03.:07:07.

couldn't understand what half of them were saying they were all in

:07:07.:07:17.
:07:17.:07:17.

tears. I didn't understand what was going on. When I got there, they

:07:18.:07:22.

wouldn't let me see him because they said they were working on him.

:07:22.:07:28.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics and bystanders, this is

:07:28.:07:34.

where Negus bled to death. Police are now desperate to catch those

:07:34.:07:40.

responsible before they kill again. Steve, is there any evidence to say

:07:40.:07:44.

this was a targeted attack? Certainly, the gang recognised

:07:44.:07:48.

Negus. We know Negus has some links to a local gang. He is not heavily

:07:48.:07:52.

involved. They certainly recognised him and gave chase. People will be

:07:52.:07:59.

scared to come forward? They will be. They need to recognise that or

:07:59.:08:03.

understand that they may be told not to speak to the police, but

:08:03.:08:06.

ultimately they need to have that trust and the confidence to come

:08:06.:08:10.

and speak to us, take that first step and speak to us. If they are

:08:10.:08:14.

scared, if they don't want to be scared for the rest of their lives,

:08:14.:08:17.

they need to get these people off the street or else that is the way

:08:17.:08:23.

it is going to be forever. He died 16 days before his 16th birthday.

:08:23.:08:29.

He had his whole life ahead of him. So many things he wanted to do. So

:08:29.:08:39.
:08:39.:08:40.

many plans he had. He will never do them now. He was always my baby, he

:08:40.:08:44.

was my Negus and that is what I called him. He was my perfect baby

:08:44.:08:50.

and he is very missed. He had his whole life ahead of him, a tragic

:08:50.:08:56.

waste of a young life. Sadly, there have already been two more murders

:08:56.:08:59.

of teenage boys in London since then. DCI Stephen Clayman joins me

:08:59.:09:05.

now. Thank you for joining us. The blade snapped off in his body. This

:09:05.:09:09.

was a brutal and terrifying attack? Absolutely. When they spotted Negus,

:09:09.:09:12.

he didn't have a chance. He must have been terrified. They chased

:09:12.:09:17.

him, I don't know whether they targeted him, but he didn't have a

:09:17.:09:22.

chance. Crucial to this case is the CCTV from earlier on in the day.

:09:22.:09:26.

Let's look at this. Explain to us what we are looking at here. This

:09:26.:09:30.

is Bounces Road and the gang here are riding towards the junction

:09:30.:09:36.

with Hertford Road. They are riding in front of cars. They are wearing

:09:36.:09:40.

face coverings and their hoods up. If you were in that car, you might

:09:40.:09:43.

remember seeing that. That is quite an unusual thing to see. There is

:09:43.:09:50.

another bit of CCTV. Tell us about this. This is the point at which

:09:50.:09:55.

the gang see Negus. They start chasing him and Negus and his

:09:55.:10:00.

brother and his friends are being chased towards Westminster Road.

:10:00.:10:04.

When you were talking to Matthew, you were talking about witnesses

:10:04.:10:07.

coming forward. You know there will be witnesses, there will be people

:10:07.:10:13.

who know things who feel too terrified to talk to you? Yeah. I

:10:13.:10:18.

am appealing to people who have knowledge or are connected to the

:10:18.:10:21.

gangs themselves. I do appreciate they are told not to speak to

:10:21.:10:25.

police, but they must speak to us. They can ring in the strictest of

:10:25.:10:29.

confidence. I will take great care and I can meet them out of their

:10:29.:10:33.

area and discreetly. They must make that first step and speak to me.

:10:33.:10:37.

big reward here? �20,000 reward for information leading to arrest and

:10:38.:10:41.

prosecution. Thank you for that. You have seen what a terrible

:10:41.:10:44.

impact this murder has had. If you know anything about it, you can

:10:44.:10:51.

speak to the detectives now here. This is the number - 0500 600 600.

:10:51.:10:56.

If you are concerned about your identity and want to call the

:10:56.:11:00.

independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously, their number is 0800

:11:00.:11:06.

555 111. Now, Rav has his first collection of wanted faces. First

:11:06.:11:11.

up is this guy 25-year-old Nathan Alan Lucas from Nuneaton. He is

:11:11.:11:21.
:11:21.:11:24.

swapbted after being con -- he is wanted after being convicted. He

:11:24.:11:29.

has links throughout the country. He has a tattoo of the band

:11:29.:11:33.

"Slipnot" on his inner forearm. Next is Rose Denise Williams, the

:11:33.:11:36.

36-year-old is wanted after absconding from Send Prison in

:11:36.:11:42.

February where she was serving a sentence for robbery. Williams has

:11:42.:11:49.

links to London, Kent and Belfast. She uses numerous aliases including

:11:49.:11:54.

the surname Browne, Hobbs and McDonagh. Three is Fakhar Zaman and

:11:54.:11:58.

he's wanted in connection with the rape of a woman in Burnley in

:11:58.:12:05.

November 2009. Zaman also has links to Manchester and uses the alias

:12:05.:12:08.

Cheema Nalaz. He may be working in a restaurant or takeaway so give

:12:08.:12:13.

him a birthday surprise and tell us where he is. Lastly, Gary Wayne

:12:13.:12:16.

Burke. He is wanted in connection with the large scale supply of

:12:16.:12:20.

heroin and crack cocaine in Luton. Burke has a keen interest in hip-

:12:20.:12:26.

hop music and may well be seen at clubs, studios and events in London.

:12:26.:12:30.

Remember all of tonight's faces are on the website -

:12:30.:12:34.

bbc.co.uk/crimewatch. And if you know where any of them are, the

:12:34.:12:41.

number is 0500 600 600 or you can text 63399 "crime" space and your

:12:41.:12:48.

message. It is important to leave that space. Now, in February, this

:12:48.:12:50.

businesswoman from Bradwell in the Peak District was beaten and thrown

:12:50.:12:55.

down the stairs during an extremely violent burglary in her home.

:12:55.:12:59.

Police think the attacker is local and they need your help to catch

:12:59.:13:09.
:13:09.:13:46.

The small haulage business has been quietly run here by a local family

:13:46.:13:50.

for decades. In February, the owner was beaten and attacked in her own

:13:50.:13:54.

home by a burglar who decided the elderly businesswoman would be an

:13:54.:13:59.

easy target. I moved into Bradwell in 1968 when I got married. It's

:13:59.:14:04.

been a lovely, happy, family home. We have run our business from here

:14:04.:14:11.

and it's been my life. My husband had already established the garage

:14:11.:14:21.
:14:21.:14:23.

business. In 1972 we created our haulage business. My dad died four

:14:23.:14:28.

years ago and it left my mum devastated. She very very fragile

:14:28.:14:32.

and still is but she has learnt to cope. We decided altogether as a

:14:32.:14:37.

family that we had got to go forward. My mum was starting to get

:14:37.:14:42.

on with her life. She didn't enjoy being on her own but she was

:14:42.:14:47.

getting used to it. Since this has happened to her, it has completely

:14:47.:14:51.

altered that. On the day the burglary happened, we decided we

:14:51.:14:57.

would go out for the day. We had a look around Bakewell and I went

:14:57.:15:02.

into the bank because I needed to draw �4,500 out for our drivers'

:15:02.:15:11.

wages. I got back from Bakewell and I decided I would go into my office

:15:11.:15:19.

and do some paperwork. My son went home at 5.45pm. See you later.

:15:19.:15:27.

right. See you later. I realised that it was 6.00 and I hadn't come

:15:27.:15:33.

downstairs and locked my door. There was no sound, there was no

:15:33.:15:39.

creek on the stairs, I didn't hear the back door open, I heard

:15:39.:15:45.

absolutely nothing. It was only the sense that someone is behind you

:15:45.:15:53.

that made me turn round. What you doing? Give me the money! I haven't

:15:53.:15:57.

got any money. I thought he is going to kill me.

:15:57.:16:05.

know you have got the money. Give me the money! In the grey box.

:16:05.:16:10.

knew there was probably �100. I thought if I give him this �100 he

:16:10.:16:17.

will leave me alone and go. He saw �300 in this cash box so as he went

:16:18.:16:25.

to get the �300, I got past him. I could hear his footsteps coming

:16:25.:16:35.
:16:35.:16:38.

behind me. Suddenly, he produced these black tie wraps. I thought he

:16:38.:16:44.

is going to tie me up now. He threw the tie wraps on to the floor. And

:16:44.:16:53.

then went out through my door. I was convinced he was gone. I got up

:16:53.:16:57.

off the floor which took me a few seconds because I was in such a

:16:57.:17:07.
:17:07.:17:11.

state. Around 6.30pm two girls waiting at a bus stop saw a blonde

:17:11.:17:21.
:17:21.:17:36.

man running from the direction of He's left her feeling vulnerable.

:17:36.:17:42.

She will tell everyone that she is OK, but underneath she isn't OK.

:17:42.:17:51.

thought I was going to die. I was fighting for my life. This man used

:17:51.:17:56.

extreme and unnecessary violence against a 66-year-old widow all for

:17:56.:18:01.

the sake of �500. Somebody out there knows who did this. They need

:18:01.:18:08.

to come forward now. The amount of money he took, what he's done to me,

:18:08.:18:13.

it is unbelievable. I hate the person who has done this to my mum.

:18:13.:18:18.

I want somebody to be found. I feel it will never go away. It can't go

:18:18.:18:25.

away. My life has changed so much because of it. Well, we are joined

:18:25.:18:29.

now by DC Derek Ellis of Derbyshire Police. This has had a devastating

:18:29.:18:35.

effect on Mrs Charles? It has. She's been left feeling very

:18:35.:18:40.

intimidated. It is important to tell people that in terms of the

:18:40.:18:43.

security that's all changed now? There's been a complete change in

:18:43.:18:48.

the security. The wages for the drivers are now paid by bankers'

:18:48.:18:51.

draft and any valuable items have been removed from the address.

:18:51.:18:57.

Let's talk about the timing of the attack. As you saw in the film, the

:18:57.:19:02.

attacker knew there was �4,500 worth of wages money. Fortunately,

:19:02.:19:06.

he only took �500. He also struck on the one day that Mrs Charles'

:19:06.:19:10.

son had left work early. We believe they may have been watched and we

:19:11.:19:16.

are keen to hear about anyone seen hanging around the address. Let's

:19:16.:19:19.

talk about definite leads. What do you know for sure? There was a

:19:19.:19:23.

white male who was seen running from the direction of the address.

:19:23.:19:28.

He ran along Netherside and on to Town Lane. Show me. It is the blue

:19:28.:19:32.

arrow on the map, that is Netherside. Trainers, you have

:19:32.:19:36.

information about the trainers? recovered footwear marks from the

:19:36.:19:43.

scene. These have been identified as an Asics style of trainer.

:19:43.:19:46.

you think somebody watching tonight might know who is responsible?

:19:46.:19:49.

Whoever did this had key information so we are asking people

:19:49.:19:52.

to come forward who are connected to the family or the business who

:19:52.:19:55.

may have been asked particular questions about how the business is

:19:55.:19:59.

run. OK. The attacker may have bragged to friends or may have

:19:59.:20:03.

acted oddly at the time. Anyone with any information needs to test

:20:03.:20:07.

their conscience and pick up the phone. We have seen the injuries.

:20:07.:20:11.

Tell me, there is a reward here? There is a reward of up to �5,000

:20:11.:20:15.

put up by the family for information leading to a conviction.

:20:15.:20:19.

Thank you. Someone must know who carried out this appalling, violent

:20:19.:20:24.

robbery. If that is you, I would urge you to call now. There is the

:20:24.:20:28.

number - 0500 600 600. Now, here is Rav with some criminals caught on

:20:28.:20:32.

camera. We start with an armed robbery in

:20:32.:20:37.

the Midlands. This is Queen Mary's Road in

:20:37.:20:41.

Coventry on a Tuesday morning last November. The owners of a jewellery

:20:41.:20:45.

wholesalers arrive and open up the store. Almost immediately, they are

:20:45.:20:49.

ambushed by three masked men who had been hiding in the white van.

:20:49.:20:53.

Once inside, the owners are separated. Out of view, one of them

:20:53.:20:59.

is threatened with a handgun and forced to open the safes. The gang

:20:59.:21:05.

fill up a black holdall with cash and jewellery before making their

:21:05.:21:14.

escape in a AudiA3. They lose their loot out of the back of the car and

:21:14.:21:18.

have to reverse almost ripping the car door off in the process before

:21:18.:21:23.

they can retrieve it. These armed robbers took more than �150,000

:21:23.:21:32.

worth of jewellery and cash. Be a gem and name them tonight.

:21:32.:21:37.

It's the early hours of a Saturday morning in May. A group of lads

:21:37.:21:40.

move down Church Street in Liverpool when there is an exchange

:21:40.:21:44.

with a man walking the opposite way. Things turn nasty and the victim is

:21:44.:21:49.

punched hard in the face knocking him clean out. As he lies there

:21:49.:21:55.

unconscious, his attacker celebrates. He is a violent thug,

:21:55.:22:05.
:22:05.:22:05.

Another town centre, late at night, this time it is Southend on sea

:22:05.:22:09.

last August. There is a disagreement between a group of men

:22:09.:22:14.

and two friends. One of them walks off but the group continue to taunt

:22:14.:22:18.

his friend as well as hurling abuse at him. Suddenly, things escalate

:22:18.:22:22.

and the man in the white top and shorts lashes out at the man in the

:22:23.:22:27.

checked shirt flooring him with a single blow. The victim's friend

:22:27.:22:33.

returns and is also set upon before passers-by step in to help. The man

:22:33.:22:36.

knocked unconscious suffered a broken cheek and fractured

:22:36.:22:41.

vertebrae in the attack. Make the streets safer and name this vicious

:22:41.:22:46.

attacker tonight. That footage is available for

:22:46.:22:50.

another look on the website - bbc.co.uk/crimewatch. If you know

:22:50.:22:57.

who any of them are, give us a call - 0500 600 600 or you can text us

:22:57.:23:02.

on 63399 "crime" space and then your message. Some news on some

:23:02.:23:08.

cases we have featured previously. You will have seen the Milly Dowler

:23:08.:23:12.

case has become a major part of the News of the World phone hacking

:23:12.:23:16.

story. Beforehand, we had the conviction of Levi Bellfield for

:23:16.:23:21.

Milly's murder in 2002. Bellfield was found guilty after a seven-week

:23:21.:23:26.

trial at the Old Bailey. In a special programme Kirsty spoke to

:23:26.:23:33.

Gemma, Milly's sister, about the ordeal of the trial. The first two

:23:33.:23:36.

days when my mum and dad were questioned was probably worse than

:23:36.:23:43.

the day that she went missing. It was that extreme. It really was.

:23:43.:23:48.

You can't explain how horrific it is in that courtroom until you are

:23:48.:23:52.

actually in there. In May, we asked for your help after a student was

:23:52.:23:57.

raped as she walked home in Brighton on Valentine's Day. As a

:23:57.:24:02.

result, -- as a result of a call to the programme, police have arrested

:24:02.:24:09.

a man and charged him with rape. We will keep you updated on that. Next,

:24:09.:24:12.

a shocking murder we featured several times over the years.

:24:12.:24:17.

Heather Barnett was killed in her Bournemouth home in November 2002.

:24:17.:24:27.

She had a lock of another woman's hair in her hand. A 39-year-old

:24:27.:24:30.

Italian man, Danilo Restivo, was convicted of her murder. The judge

:24:30.:24:35.

told him he will never be released from prison. Italian police want to

:24:35.:24:38.

extradite him to stand trial for the murder of a woman in southern

:24:38.:24:43.

Italy in 1993. In February we appealed for the

:24:43.:24:46.

help with this investigation into the murder of student Samuel

:24:46.:24:50.

Guidera who died after being stabbed through the heart just

:24:50.:24:54.

outside Penge East train station in Sydenham. The day after the

:24:54.:24:58.

programme, Crimestoppers received a call from a person with information

:24:58.:25:01.

about Samuel's death. Tonight, detectives are asking for that

:25:01.:25:05.

person to get in touch again. You can speak to Crimestoppers or

:25:05.:25:12.

directly to the officer leading the case, DCI Laurence Smith, on this

:25:12.:25:20.

mobile number - 07404 823 299. So, please, if that was you, or if you

:25:20.:25:25.

have any information, do please get in touch tonight.

:25:25.:25:34.

Still to come: The woman beaten and left for dead in a Rochdale

:25:34.:25:37.

alleyway. Do you recognise this as the nightdress that she was found

:25:37.:25:43.

in? Matthew has the shocking story of how John Cooper was brought to

:25:43.:25:46.

justice. He's a brutal but calculating man

:25:46.:25:50.

who for years denied responsibility for shooting dead two married

:25:50.:25:55.

couples. In the end, his lies were no match for the advances in

:25:55.:25:59.

forensic science. It was quite clear that that firearm was causing

:25:59.:26:05.

him significant issues. In the de- brief after the interview, it was

:26:05.:26:11.

one of those moments where we all were satisfied that that was the

:26:11.:26:16.

murder weapon. And just come over here - take a look at this. Almost

:26:16.:26:20.

�1 million-worth of stunning jewellery. We need to find out who

:26:20.:26:23.

it belongs to. That is going to come up soon.

:26:23.:26:27.

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

:26:27.:26:31.

Yeah, let's briefly interrupt Steve and his team investigating the

:26:31.:26:35.

murder of Negus McClean. What has come in so far? I have to say in

:26:35.:26:37.

the short time, we have had a fantastic response. There are

:26:37.:26:42.

people who are ringing in naming names which is fantastic. I will be

:26:42.:26:48.

talking to them in the next couple of days. It is good they are having

:26:48.:26:52.

the confidence to ring me. Others are providing some street names

:26:52.:26:57.

which is fantastic. What I would ask if people can give us the full

:26:57.:27:01.

names as well. Do you know if the names are gang members? Yes, they

:27:02.:27:06.

are other gang members so it is important if they are naming gang

:27:06.:27:10.

members, they must give us the full name. There are lots of witnesses

:27:10.:27:16.

on the CCTV? Witnessed by his brother, he stood no chance, he was

:27:16.:27:19.

outnumbered and stabbed several times. He didn't stand a chance.

:27:19.:27:24.

Good luck and Steve is here waiting for your call. Now, Rav has more of

:27:24.:27:28.

his wanted faces. First, is this lady, Hannah Parveen,

:27:28.:27:34.

she is wanted in connection with neglect and ill-treatment of an

:27:34.:27:39.

elderly care home patient in 2008. The police believe that Parveen may

:27:39.:27:43.

be married and using a different surname. Six is Christopher Ian

:27:43.:27:46.

Edwards. He is wanted on a recall to prison after breaching the terms

:27:46.:27:55.

of his licence. He has links to Welling, Bexley, Bexleyheath and

:27:55.:28:00.

Bromley. Take a look at this. It is CCTV that we showed you in March of

:28:00.:28:03.

a distraction theft at a jewellers in Midsumer Norton near Bath, that

:28:03.:28:08.

is in January this year. As a result of a call to the programme,

:28:08.:28:13.

the woman in red was named as 22- year-old Sava Ancuta. And the man

:28:13.:28:18.

as 32-year-old Boeri Kvec, there he is at the end. Now, we need to find

:28:18.:28:23.

them. They should be quite easy to spot. Ancuta has several gold teeth

:28:23.:28:27.

and a burned scar on the back of her right hand while Kvec has

:28:27.:28:32.

tattoos on both forearms with one reading "CENORITA" with a "C". They

:28:32.:28:37.

have links to Scotland, Birmingham, Dublin and Redditch. Police still

:28:37.:28:41.

want to trace the other woman wearing the white. If you know

:28:41.:28:51.
:28:51.:28:52.

where she and Ancuta and Kvec are, get in touch. Remember, they will

:28:52.:28:58.

stay online - bbc.co.uk/crimewatch - until they are caught.

:28:58.:29:02.

It should have been Elaine Doyle's 42nd birthday yesterday. Instead

:29:02.:29:06.

her family were at her grave side marking the 25th anniversary of her

:29:07.:29:11.

murder. She was attacked and strangled on the road where she

:29:11.:29:16.

lived in Greenock in the west of Scotland in June 1986. Tonight is

:29:16.:29:21.

your chance to help her parents see some justice.

:29:21.:29:27.

Greenock in west Scotland during the 1980s was a town in turmoil.

:29:27.:29:31.

The maritime industry was in decline and unemployment on the

:29:31.:29:36.

rise. But perhaps the biggest blow to hit the town came in 1986 when a

:29:37.:29:41.

local teenager was brutally murdered just yards from her

:29:41.:29:50.

doorstep. I have to leave this house and I have to pass by the

:29:50.:29:55.

place where my daughter was killed and I know people are looking at me

:29:55.:30:00.

and feeling sorry for me and feeling sorry for my family. Well,

:30:00.:30:05.

I don't want them to feel sorry for me if they know something and they

:30:05.:30:10.

are not going down to the police. There is no good sending me a

:30:10.:30:17.

sympathy card. Elaine Doyle, aged 16 at the time, was attacked and

:30:17.:30:23.

strangled just 50 yards from her front door. 25 years on, her

:30:23.:30:27.

parents, their health now frail, are as determined as ever to bring

:30:27.:30:33.

her killer to justice. The only way to describe Elaine is a happy

:30:33.:30:39.

teenager. Nothing was too much bother for her. She liked mixing

:30:39.:30:44.

with her friends. Elaine was fun- loving, caring, she was very, very

:30:44.:30:48.

funny. She was a great, great person. She was beautiful. You

:30:48.:30:53.

would never meet another person like Elaine. I think there develops

:30:53.:31:03.
:31:03.:31:04.

a bond and it develops as the years go on. She was a daddy's girl.

:31:04.:31:09.

what do we know about that evening in June 1986? It was the Sunday of

:31:09.:31:12.

a bank holiday weekend and millions of people across the country would

:31:13.:31:18.

have been staying up late to watch the Mexico World Cup matches on TV.

:31:18.:31:24.

That's me off to the disco. right, darling. Elaine would always

:31:24.:31:27.

tell you what time she was going to come back home at because she

:31:27.:31:33.

didn't want to worry her parents. Before she left the house, I said

:31:33.:31:41.

what time will you be home, love. "I'll phone you later, dad." "All

:31:41.:31:47.

right, darling." We all decided to go to the Celtic

:31:47.:31:54.

Club because we are all off work on the Monday. I had a laugh, a wee

:31:54.:32:01.

dance and a giggle. There was no serious dancing, it was all to make

:32:01.:32:11.
:32:11.:32:13.

When she phoned from the Celtic Club, I think it was between 8.00

:32:13.:32:20.

and 8.30... Hello, hi, darling. "Daddy, I'll be home at 12.00."

:32:20.:32:25.

Maureen and I were quite happy to get that phone call.

:32:25.:32:30.

That was Elaine, she will be home at 12.00. All right. After the

:32:30.:32:34.

disco, I started walking towards Clyde Square and it was time for

:32:34.:32:39.

Elaine to go home. I ran after her and asked her to come back to my

:32:39.:32:46.

house and stay. I can't. Because it was too late to phone her parents,

:32:46.:32:51.

she obviously said no and headed home. From here, lain would have

:32:51.:32:57.

taken a route through Hamilton Way towards her home in the West End of

:32:57.:33:01.

Greenock. Many would have still been up enjoying the bank holiday

:33:01.:33:11.
:33:11.:33:35.

As soon as I found out Elaine hadn't stayed at Lynne's and I seen

:33:35.:33:45.
:33:45.:33:52.

the police activity I knew it was Elaine. The policeman says, "The

:33:52.:34:02.
:34:02.:34:02.

woman's dead." Members of the public will say to you, Elaine was

:34:02.:34:08.

in the wrong place at the time. Elaine wasn't in the wrong place at

:34:08.:34:14.

the time. She was quite entitled to walk home safely without getting

:34:14.:34:20.

attacked and murdered. Elaine had been strangled and partially

:34:20.:34:27.

stripped of her clothes in what police believe to be a sexually

:34:27.:34:32.

mowty vaited attack. Her murder triggered the largest-ever manhunt

:34:32.:34:36.

in the area. Witness sightings on the night

:34:36.:34:40.

compounded the police's belief that the suspect was local. On several

:34:40.:34:48.

occasions, a man was seen behaving erratically on nearby Nelson Street.

:34:48.:34:52.

There was also a sighting of a young man walking behind a woman

:34:52.:34:55.

who could have been Elaine at around the time of her murder. But

:34:55.:35:01.

none of these men were ever identified. Eventually, with few

:35:01.:35:06.

leads and no suspects, the investigation was scaled down but

:35:06.:35:11.

in 2003 thanks to advances in forensics scientists were able to

:35:11.:35:18.

isolate a DNA profile of Elaine's killer. Detectives can now

:35:18.:35:22.

eliminate anyone from the inquiry and put their minds at rest if they

:35:22.:35:31.

are innocent, but in order to do that, they need names. Somebody

:35:31.:35:35.

else knows that you can't keep a secret like that to yourself for 25

:35:35.:35:42.

years. We would like to put a face to that person, who he is, why he

:35:42.:35:51.

would need to take Elaine's life. It doesn't get any easier. But we

:35:51.:35:57.

will never give up hope. It is living in a nightmare. They have

:35:57.:36:01.

been living in a nightmare. We are joined by DC Willie Brandon from

:36:02.:36:05.

Strathclyde Police. I understand that time is of the essence for the

:36:05.:36:11.

family. Explain a bit of that? indeed. Both of Elaine's parents

:36:11.:36:16.

are now in poor health and in fact Jack gave his Crimewatch interview

:36:16.:36:20.

prior to rushing off to a hospital appointment so we are particularly

:36:20.:36:27.

keen to bring them the answers that they crave. 25 years since this

:36:27.:36:29.

horrific murder took place. Loyalties change in that time and

:36:29.:36:33.

also as we saw in your film, crucially the evidence has changed.

:36:33.:36:38.

You can rule people out for sure? We can indeed. Loyalties do change.

:36:38.:36:43.

People's relationships change. People's perceptions of what is

:36:43.:36:49.

important in life may have changed. Having this DNA evidence, we can

:36:49.:36:54.

rule people out very quickly and very easily. So I would urge anyone

:36:54.:36:58.

who has harboured any form of suspicion, no matter how small,

:36:58.:37:02.

someone they know has some connection with this crime to pick

:37:02.:37:05.

up the phone and give us the name. What about local knowledge then? Do

:37:05.:37:09.

you think this person lived in Greenock or had really good

:37:09.:37:15.

knowledge of Greenock? We think one or the other. The reasons for that,

:37:15.:37:19.

he displayed some degree of knowledge in the Commission of the

:37:19.:37:23.

crime. Crucially, we know the handbag was taken by her killer on

:37:23.:37:27.

the night of her murder. One week after the murder, the handbag

:37:27.:37:33.

turned up on the steps of a local library in broad daylight on fire.

:37:33.:37:37.

We believe this was some bizarre attempt to taunt the police, but

:37:37.:37:42.

crucially that tells us that the person who murdered Elaine was

:37:42.:37:46.

still in Greenock one week later and again, demonstrates some local

:37:46.:37:49.

connection. That is an important clue. You can reveal to us tonight

:37:49.:37:55.

more detail on how Elaine died? I can tell you that Elaine was

:37:55.:38:01.

strangled, by some form of ligature. We know that Elaine bravely fought

:38:01.:38:07.

back, quite frankly she never stood a chance. We have never recovered

:38:07.:38:12.

that ligature. We would be keen to know anything about its whereabouts

:38:12.:38:17.

now or if anyone knows anything at all obviously about the person.

:38:17.:38:21.

Thank you very much. 25 years a very long time. Think back, it was

:38:21.:38:25.

a memorable night because of the bank holiday, the World Cup. If you

:38:25.:38:30.

know who killed Elaine, if you have suspicions, call now - 0500 600 600.

:38:30.:38:35.

Now it is time for more CCTV. This lot of crooks all seem to favour

:38:35.:38:45.
:38:45.:38:46.

public transport. A train stops at Woodgrange Park in January. A group

:38:46.:38:52.

of men get on board. They sit next to a male passenger. As the lone

:38:52.:38:56.

passenger makes a call, the men switch places so the one in the red

:38:56.:39:01.

hoodie is sat next to him. He puts up his hood and moments later lungs

:39:02.:39:10.

at the man. The victim is punched in the face as the attacker takes

:39:10.:39:16.

his phone. The man pushes past them but the assault continues.

:39:16.:39:20.

Eventually he manages to escape into the next carriage. His

:39:20.:39:26.

attackers get off at the next stop. Mindless violence and all for a

:39:26.:39:32.

mobile phone. Tell us who they are tonight.

:39:32.:39:37.

We are still on the railways but downstairs this time at Barking

:39:37.:39:40.

Underground Station during the early hours of Easter Sunday. These

:39:40.:39:47.

two men are far from good eggs. The pair meet up with a mate in a

:39:47.:39:52.

turquoise top and gets on to the waiting train. When the driver

:39:52.:39:57.

approaches and asks them to move, he is set upon. He was knocked

:39:57.:40:02.

unconscious and lost a tooth in the attack. The three then flee

:40:02.:40:12.
:40:12.:40:14.

together from the scene. Do the This man has boarded the 119 bus in

:40:14.:40:18.

Croydon South London but he doesn't want a ticket. He's aggressive and

:40:18.:40:22.

immediately starts shouting at the driver before attacking him in his

:40:22.:40:29.

cab. Let's make it the end of the line for this thug. Tell us his

:40:29.:40:37.

name. Call 0500 600 600 or you can text us on 63399 "crime" space and

:40:37.:40:42.

your message. Now, a really unusual case of a woman who was found badly

:40:42.:40:47.

beaten and left wearing someone else's nightdress in an alleyway in

:40:47.:40:50.

Rochdale. With me now is DI Melani Linton from Greater Manchester

:40:51.:40:55.

Police. Tell us what more do you know about this? The victim's Laura,

:40:55.:40:57.

a 20-year-old woman and she had gone out for the night with friends.

:40:57.:41:05.

They went for a meal, they went ten-pin bowling and they went to

:41:05.:41:09.

The Littern Tree public house. Laura left her friends and started

:41:09.:41:14.

to make her way home. What are we seeing here? We see Laura come out

:41:14.:41:18.

of the pub and she is alone. In a moment, we will see her walk

:41:18.:41:22.

towards the entrance of an alleyway, just there. She goes into the

:41:22.:41:26.

alleyway which leads off Yorkshire Street. We see a person go into the

:41:26.:41:30.

alleyway just after her. This person here, we need to speak to

:41:30.:41:36.

that person. What happened next? Two hours later, Laura was found in

:41:36.:41:40.

the same alleyway and she had been badly beaten so severely that we

:41:40.:41:44.

thought she might not survive. Really horrific injuries. A

:41:44.:41:47.

terrible experience for Laura who is understandably desperate to know

:41:47.:41:52.

what it was that happened to her. think it will stay with me for the

:41:52.:41:57.

rest of me life to know that someone could do that, so for a

:41:57.:42:03.

normal night out with my friends, to end up in hospital. They are

:42:03.:42:09.

quite disturbed to do something like that to someone. I want the

:42:09.:42:16.

person caught. And sent to prison. Explain more about the oddity with

:42:16.:42:20.

what she was wearing? She was wearing a nightdress. We don't know

:42:20.:42:24.

where it's come from. There are no markings in the nightdress, nothing

:42:24.:42:27.

to tell us where it may have come from or how it was made. We need to

:42:28.:42:31.

know more about it. If anybody knows where it has come from,

:42:32.:42:37.

please call in tonight. Or if they can give you any details. What

:42:37.:42:41.

other possessions were missing? of Laura's possessions, her clothes,

:42:41.:42:46.

handbag, shoes, everything was missing. The only item that has

:42:46.:42:50.

been found was a bank card which was handed into the NatWest Bank. I

:42:50.:42:54.

would like to speak to the person that handed that bank card in.

:42:54.:43:00.

Thank you very much. Terrible. We need to know what happened to Laura

:43:00.:43:04.

and what about that nightdress? Where did it come from? It is very

:43:04.:43:07.

important that the person seen there gets identified, gets in

:43:07.:43:12.

touch. You could do that on 0500 600 600. If you have been a victim

:43:12.:43:19.

of crime, there is the Victim Support line - 0845 30 30 900. Now,

:43:19.:43:23.

it is time for some more updates on the cases that you have already

:43:23.:43:27.

helped with. First, the case we showed last

:43:27.:43:29.

December, Julian Gardner from East Sussex died after confronting a

:43:29.:43:36.

gang of intruders at his farm in ago, five men all from Kent

:43:36.:43:39.

appeared in court charged with his manslaughter. The five men along

:43:39.:43:44.

with a sixth man charged with conspiring to pervert the course of

:43:44.:43:49.

justice are due in court later in the year.

:43:49.:43:55.

You may remember this face, Peter James Hannah. He appeared on my

:43:55.:43:59.

wanted faces board in the last programme after slashing a man with

:43:59.:44:02.

learning difficulties across the face and back with a knife. 40-

:44:02.:44:06.

year-old Anna was arrested on his way to Liverpool Airport and last

:44:06.:44:11.

month he was given an indeterminate prison sentence and will serve

:44:11.:44:16.

seven years. Nice one. Now, have you ever wondered what �1

:44:16.:44:21.

million worth of jewellery looks like? Now you know. DC Andrea Smith

:44:21.:44:26.

from South Yorkshire Police is here with this extremely valuable lot.

:44:26.:44:32.

How did you come upon it? These are a few of the items we have

:44:32.:44:35.

recovered from a modest private house during a criminal

:44:35.:44:40.

investigation. It is currently ongoing. Who do you want to hear

:44:40.:44:44.

from? We would like to hear from anybody who recognises any of the

:44:44.:44:48.

pieces, anybody who has owned any of the pieces and has anybody had

:44:48.:44:54.

any of these stolen from them? Has anybody been given them as gifts?

:44:54.:44:57.

More importantly, as you can see, some of these items have been

:44:57.:45:00.

custom-made, we would like to know if anybody has been commissioned to

:45:00.:45:07.

make any of the items. Some of them are extraordinary in their own way.

:45:07.:45:11.

Take me through this. The jeweller has estimated that they will have

started off quite plain and had the diamonds added on this Rolex watch

:45:17.:45:22.

and the diamonds and the rubies added to the Chopard watch there.

:45:22.:45:31.

Of course, we think this one has been custom-made. Let's talk about

:45:31.:45:36.

this one. The centre stone is a ten carat diamond solitary. It is on a

:45:36.:45:40.

twist and the twist has diamonds all the way around it. That item

:45:40.:45:49.

has been valued at �200,000. Just for that? Yes. Generally, the other

:45:49.:45:54.

stuff, a lot of diamonds? There is a lot of diamonds. In total, the

:45:54.:45:57.

collection is worth over �1 million. We are interested to hear from

:45:57.:46:00.

anybody who might know where this jewellery has come from. Goodness

:46:00.:46:03.

me. Those are some of the pieces that we are looking at here tonight.

:46:03.:46:10.

If you want to have a closer look at them, pictures of everything

:46:10.:46:15.

recovered are on bbc.co.uk/crimewatch. If you

:46:15.:46:19.

recognise that incredible ten carat ring or anything else, call the

studio now - 0500 600 600. Now in May this man, John Cooper, was

:46:27.:46:31.

convicted of a catalogue of appalling crimes. He is an armed

:46:31.:46:38.

robber, a rapist and a murderer who brought havoc on a rural part of

:46:38.:46:41.

South West Wales for that years. He was eventually caught thanks to

:46:41.:46:51.
:46:51.:47:03.

some of the most sophisticated On a bright summer's day, Peter and

:47:04.:47:09.

Gwenda Dixon were murdered on a scenic stretch of one of Britain's

:47:09.:47:14.

most popular National Parks. They had been tied up, shot and robbed.

:47:14.:47:20.

The killings would become one of the most intriguing cases for

:47:20.:47:23.

police involving terrorist conspiracies, a massive manhunt and

:47:24.:47:28.

decades of forensic work, work which would lead to the conviction

:47:28.:47:35.

of a serial killer. You must judge me after the trial, not before.

:47:35.:47:40.

down. The Dixons weren't Cooper's only victims. He rer tiezed the

:47:40.:47:50.
:47:50.:47:52.

local area for 25 years, committing dozens of offences. In the summer

:47:52.:47:57.

of 1989, Peter and Gwenda Dixon had been camping in a popular spot on

:47:57.:48:01.

the coast in Pembrokeshire in South West Wales. When the couple failed

:48:01.:48:07.

to return home to Oxford, their son raised the alarm and a full-scale

:48:07.:48:11.

missing persons inquiry was launched. Five days later, their

:48:11.:48:15.

bodies were found by a police search team. They had been hidden

:48:15.:48:20.

in thick undergrowth. Police were perplexed as to why someone would

:48:20.:48:25.

murder a couple in broad daylight in such a poop ewe lar tourist spot.

:48:25.:48:31.

One suggestion that the Dixons had discovered a secret IRA arms dump

:48:31.:48:36.

and had been killed to prevent them from reporting it. There were

:48:36.:48:41.

various theories put forward. Drug- running, that Peter and Gwenda

:48:41.:48:46.

Dixon may have stumbled upon or potentially the IRA. The most

:48:46.:48:51.

compelling evidence pointed towards it being a bungled robbery. Peter

:48:51.:48:54.

Dixon's cash card was used in the days after the murder. Police

:48:54.:48:58.

focused their investigation on finding a scruffy-looking man seen

:48:58.:49:02.

hanging around at banks. Despite two Crimewatch appeals, and

:49:02.:49:06.

thousands of police interviews, detectives were no nearer to

:49:06.:49:10.

catching their suspect. Everybody felt that one day we would have a

:49:10.:49:15.

name, the name would come forward and we would then be able to prove

:49:15.:49:21.

that this individual was the murderer. What we were aware of was

:49:21.:49:24.

there was very little forensic evidence which we could use at that

:49:24.:49:30.

particular time. For years, it looked like the killer had slipped

:49:30.:49:36.

through the net, but in 2006 a group of detectives known as

:49:36.:49:41.

Operation Ottowa were tasked with re-opening three previous unlinked

:49:42.:49:46.

serious crimes, among them was the Dixon's murder. One of the other

:49:46.:49:54.

cases was the murders of Richard and Helen Thomas. The house was

:49:54.:50:00.

burnt down in an attempt to destroy any evidence. They also looked

:50:00.:50:08.

again at an attack on a group of children in 1996 in Milford Haven.

:50:08.:50:12.

The assailant had threatened them with a shotgun before raping one of

:50:12.:50:18.

the girls and indecently assaulting another. After two years after

:50:18.:50:21.

tirelessly sifting through thousands of old exhibits, witness

:50:21.:50:25.

statements and images, the team felt that one offender could be

:50:25.:50:30.

responsible for all three crimes. If you look at the ability of the

:50:30.:50:33.

offender to control multiple victims, the rural area, the use of

:50:33.:50:38.

violence, the use of a sawn-off shotgun, robbery, I could be

:50:38.:50:44.

talking about the Dixons murder or the attack on the children. For me

:50:44.:50:49.

that was a significant linking factor when you run alongside that

:50:49.:50:54.

the fire was only two fields away from the Milford Haven attack.

:50:54.:50:59.

name that kept coming up was that of a local labourer. John William

:50:59.:51:03.

Cooper had been arrested and convicted in 1998 for a string of

:51:03.:51:09.

dwelling house burglaries which covered the same geographical area.

:51:09.:51:15.

In particular, as well, he had been convicted of an armed robbery... He

:51:15.:51:21.

had attacked a lone female in the house, he tied her up, threatened

:51:21.:51:25.

her with a sawn-off shotgun, he only fled the scene after the

:51:25.:51:32.

victim managed to raise the alarm. A rare moment of panic, he threw

:51:32.:51:37.

his balaclava, gun and gloves into a hedgerow. These items would lead

:51:37.:51:41.

detectives to Cooper. Following his arrest, officers spent four weeks

:51:41.:51:44.

retrieving further evidence from his home and garden. The

:51:44.:51:48.

significance of what they found wouldn't become apparent for

:51:48.:51:55.

another decade. For me, the foresight of the people involved in

:51:55.:52:00.

the Huntsman inquiry, to retain the material in the manner that they

:52:00.:52:05.

did, the storage of it, that was one of the significant factors

:52:05.:52:11.

which allowed us to conduct a methodical investigation, a

:52:11.:52:15.

transparent investigation and reach a successful conclusion. Cooper was

:52:15.:52:21.

given a 16-year sentence for the robberies. The new investigation

:52:21.:52:25.

into the double murders was in full flow. Although detectives were

:52:25.:52:28.

convinced he was responsible, they needed scientific evidence to back

:52:28.:52:33.

up their case. They decided to re- examine the items taken from his

:52:33.:52:37.

house during the burglary investigations. Crucial was a pair

:52:37.:52:43.

of shorts taken from his bedroom. It was while we were looking at the

:52:43.:52:49.

surface debris from the shorts on sell tape strips for textile fibres

:52:49.:52:54.

that we actually discovered this tiny flake of blood and so we

:52:54.:52:59.

immediately put it in for DNA profiling using our most sensitive

:52:59.:53:06.

technique. We managed to get a DNA profile matching Peter Dixon.

:53:06.:53:08.

During yesterday's interview, John... It was Cooper himself who

:53:08.:53:12.

during his police interviews would lead the team to their second

:53:12.:53:17.

discovery. It was a firearm which was part of the offence of the

:53:17.:53:22.

armed robbery in late '90s. It was quite clear that firearm was

:53:22.:53:25.

causing him significant issues. In the de-brief after the interview,

:53:26.:53:30.

it was one of those moments where we all were quite satisfied that

:53:30.:53:33.

that was the murder weapon, certainly for the Dixons, probably

:53:33.:53:39.

for the Thomass as well. We went back to the gun and we found both

:53:39.:53:44.

from the flakes and from the gun itself we found that there was

:53:44.:53:47.

bloodstaining under the paint and again when we put it in for DNA

:53:47.:53:52.

profiling the profile we got back matched Peter Dixon's so we were

:53:52.:53:58.

sure we were on the right track. Despite overwhelming forensic

:53:58.:54:08.
:54:08.:54:24.

evidence, Cooper continued to deny Having resorted to blaming his own

:54:24.:54:34.

:55:07.:55:12.

hear that, do you? Over nine weeks at Swansea Crown Court the jury

:55:12.:55:16.

were told of the damning DNA and fibre evidence that linked Cooper

:55:16.:55:21.

to all three crime scenes. people from the communities of

:55:21.:55:24.

Wales listened to that evidence over that period of nine weeks and

:55:25.:55:31.

found him unanimously guilty of all charges. 25 years after John Keirer

:55:31.:55:35.

began terrorising this small area of South West Wales, the families

:55:35.:55:42.

of his victims had finally seen justice delivered. Horrifying man.

:55:43.:55:46.

Four life sentences he got. Judge me after the trial we heard him say.

:55:46.:55:51.

We all can. He is a monster, a psychopath. The judge said the

:55:51.:55:55.

murders were of such evil wickedness that the mandatory life

:55:55.:55:59.

sentences would mean just that, he is not getting out. It was great to

:55:59.:56:03.

see the scientist there, the judge said forensics the key? The fibre

:56:03.:56:08.

evidence was astonishing, just as the DNA work was. They found a

:56:08.:56:14.

speck of blood the size of a grain of sand underneath the repainted

:56:14.:56:18.

shotgun. It was great detective work as well. Cooper insisted that

:56:18.:56:22.

he looked nothing like the artist's impression of the suspect in 1989.

:56:22.:56:28.

Detectives unearthed video footage of him on the TV show Bull's-eye a

background. What was in his history? It is violence, that is

the common denominator over 40 years. With his own dog, when it

:56:46.:56:50.

became lame, he didn't take it to a vet, he dug a trench and he spent

:56:50.:56:55.

half an hour clubbing it to death with his shovel. I know. That is

:56:55.:57:00.

what he was like, in his personal life, that is what always jumps out

:57:00.:57:06.

- violence. This guy, there are no redeeming features. He is now where

he belongs. Thank you. It is time for a quick check on all of
