“Why are you so obsessed with this case for?”
“I don’t know? It’s young women innit… that and the fact once this comes out (AND IT WILL COME OUT!), it might kick the lazy fucking inept twats that the British public call a police force into touch… may be the excuse needed to restructure the entire UK police forces into one… that shares information and intelligence, works together to actually solve crimes… … as fucking crazy as that sounds!”
Heres one that may be of interest to you…
”Wiltshire Police and potential serial killer Christopher Halliwell.”
Sunday front page of Express (Mail and Mirror had a piece as well)
‘Secret Lair of Serial Killer’
Sundays papers ran with a story of UK potential serial killer, Christopher Halliwell. Convicted of killing one woman, known to have killed another, highly suspected of killing four others in the Wiltshire area (since 96)… SUSPECTED AMONG MANY TO HAVE HAD A KILLING CAREER OF OVER TWENTY YEARS (88), UP AND DOWN ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
TEXTBOOK PSYCHOPATH! HIGHLY MOTIVATED AND EXTREMELY CAPABLE OF EVADING POLICE FOR UP TO 20 YEARS!
Wiltshire Police got a bit bitchy about what was released to The Express (by their own officers), and labelled it as ‘speculation’.
-Police forces up and down the country need to be going back on ALL unsolved missing women/unsolved murder cases since 88.
-Police need to be tracing the movements and actions of Halliwell since 88. Where he worked, where he holidayed, who he met.

007 said… I understand police investigations have to be careful what information they release to the media… but!
UK’s potential serial killer, Christopher Halliwell (this has been on going for a number of years)
– PUBLICALLY REALEASED number of potential number of victims since 1996 – Six
-PRIVATELY amongst different investigating officers – ????
-‘potential offending period of more than 30 years’.
-First talked of serial killing in 84. Released in 88.
-The methodical and forensically expert manner in which the first known victim (in Wilts area), Becky Godden-Edwards, was murdered (reported missing in 07) would indicate he may have had a history of killing.
-Halliwell could not remember the year he killed Becky Godden-Edwards (03, 04 or 05). This would indicate she was not his first victim (one of potentially many).
-First potential victim (Melanie Hall) in (again in Wilts area) 1996.
-The fact he owned over 80 cabs, across Britain.
-Worked across Britain driving cabs. Worked in construction. Holidayed across Britain in his narrow boat.
“We know he travelled all over the country working as a driver, or in the construction industry, and we are also looking at where he took his holidays on his narrow boat. He could have left victims anywhere in the UK.
“There is evidence from the way he disposed of Becky’s body, with all clothing and jewellery removed, that he was very forensically aware. Books on forensics were found in his loft.”
”Halliwell regularly spent time alone in his own narrow boat on the Kennet and Avon canal, which he has since sold.
Almost no evidence of Halliwell’s forensic “footprint” could be found in the home he shared with his 55-year-old ex-lover.
A source said: “It was as if he didn’t live there. It leads us to ask if he has some other premises, a lock-up or similar, somewhere else, which does contain his life and – horrifically – maybe trophies of his victims.”
I have got a sickening gut feeling (and I know a number of investigating officers will share this)… This may only be the tip of the iceberg. I sincerely hope this investigation is being co-ordinated properly, and information is being shared across the country. The man is a textbook psychopath. Friendly, charming, able to extract information from his potential victims, meaning he only killed those he knew would not be reported missing, or had personal problems. Had a wife and family, who had no idea.
This could be horrific… he’s refusing to give any information unless he has to. He hasn’t killed for fame or notoriety, or to play mind games with law enforcement… he’s done it out necessity, to satisfy his own urges. Sadly, the number of victims may never be known.
A DOSSIER linking serial killer Christopher Halliwell to an unsolved murder has been sent to police.
Detectives are looking at evidence linked to the disappearance of Melanie Hall, in Bath, in June 1996.
The new info has been supplied by cold case expert Chris Clark.
The remains of university graduate Melanie were found by a workman 13 years after she went missing.
Her killer has never been bought to justice.
Former intelligence officer Clark believes Melanie’s abduction bears the hallmarks of Halliwell’s gruesome death spree.
He said: “The method and other evidence point towards Halliwell.
“There is ‘similar fact evidence’ linking Halliwell to the scene and they are compelling.
“I have sent my dossier to the police and they are looking into it.”
Clerical worker Melanie was last seen at Cadillacs nightclub in Bath. She is then believed to have left with a man.
A couple were later spotted arguing and a man was seen trying to drag a woman into a car park backing on to the Kennet and Avon canal.
Clark says there is an uncanny similarity between Halliwell and photo fits of the suspect.
The man was said to be in his 20s, 5ft 10in, with dark hair and a deep tan. At the time, the taxi driver was 32 with similar characteristics.
A few days later, a couple reported hearing a man on a narrowboat talking about Melanie.
Halliwell was a narrowboat fanatic with his own vessel, and used the Kennet and Avon canal.
Clark believes the suspect could have been him.
The sadist also disposed of the bodies of his victims in a different county from where they were snatched.
Melanie was abducted in Somerset but her body was found beside the M5 near Bristol.
Blue rope used to tie up Melanie’s remains was identical to the rope often used on narrowboats.
Clark added: “The circumstantial evidence adds up. I have sent my findings to Avon and Somerset Police and hope they will investigate.”
Halliwell is serving life for killing clubber Sian O’Callaghan, 22, and Becky Godden-Edwards, 20.
The divorced father-of-three had access to 80 taxi cabs and would drive fares across the UK.
He would also often travel around the canal network in the north of England.
Previously, Clark has linked Halliwell to three unsolved murders: Donna Keogh, 17, disappeared in 1998; vice girl Vicky Glass, 21, in 2001; and sex worker Rachel Wilson, 19, vanished in May 2002.
They all went missing in a small area around the former Shipmate pub, in central Middlesbrough.
The area was well-known to Halliwell.
Clark was interviewed by the joint force Major Investigation Team (MIT) in 2016 about his findings.
The MIT is a collaboration between Avon and Somerset Police and Wiltshire Police.
A spokesperson for MIT confirmed it had received the dossier.
But they said currently there is no direct evidence linking Halliwell with the murder of Melanie Hall.
