On Thursday 19 August 2004 French student, Amelie Delagrange, is found on Twickenham Green with fatal head injuries.
Detective Chief Inspector Colin Sutton of the Metropolitan Police is appointed as Senior Investigating Officer, tasked with leading the investigation.
There is no forensic evidence from the attacker at the crime scene, and no apparent modus operandi. But there has been a spate of similar violent attacks on young women in the same area. Colin suspects there could be a link to the murder of Marsha McDonnell in the previous year.
The police discover that Amelie’s phone last made contact with the network a short time after her death and six miles from Twickenham Green, close to the river. They now know that the killer must have taken it and left the scene in a vehicle.
Colin puts a large proportion of his team onto checking CCTV from that night to try to find the vehicle, and decides to search the river by Walton Bridge. Some of Amelie’s possessions are found, and CCTV reveals a suspicious white van close to the crime scene at the time of the attack.
