“I’ve been banging on about this since 2013? 2014? The guys a textbook psychopath, who has quite possibly murdered up to thirty women (more)… all over UK… since 1985.
But until a hit ITV dramatization starring Doctor Watson is broadcast… the public don’t give two fucks!
A former intelligence officer by the name Chris Clarke has/is drawing up a private investigation into Halliwell, going back to the beginning… the police have all the information.
Me? I COULDN’T GIVE TWO FUCKS FOR THIS SICK, DEPRAVED SOCIETY THAT IS THE UNITED KINGDOM! Same as everything else (terrorism, child sex abuse)… unless their Jewish victims… fuck off!
Besides A Confession concludes next Monday… the Monday after that ITV broadcast something else for the public to pretend to fucking care about.”
A Confession killer Christopher Halliwell linked to four more unsolved murders
A witness has told how double killer Christopher Halliwell drove a white van similar to the one spotted at the scene of an unsolved murder.
And he revealed the taxi driver lived just four miles from the field where Julie Finley’s naked body was dumped after she had been snatched in a city centre.
The evidence comes after the Mirror found striking similarities between the murders of Julie, Carol Clark, Jackie Waines and Yvonne Fitt and the two Halliwell is spending life in jail for.
And the claims by the witness could provide a crucial breakthrough in Julie’s case which has been unsolved for 25 years.
He urged police to reinvestigate Halliwell, 55 – currently being portrayed in ITV drama A Confession – and said he is willing to give a statement.
He said: “I think the police should look at this and I am happy to talk to them.”
Julie, 23, vanished from the centre of Liverpool on August 4, 1994, and was found strangled a day later in Rainford, Lancs.
The witness said Halliwell stayed in nearby Aughton, where he worked as a window fitter from Monday to Friday before returning to his home town of Swindon.
And he claimed the killer drove a 1986 made, D reg Ford Transit van, like the one spotted near the scene.
A woman calling herself “Tina” contacted police soon after the murder saying Julie had said she was going to see a taxi driver.
And a witness claimed a young woman fitting Julie’s description had been seen arguing with a man, who was trying to force her into a van.
The Mirror has traced the witness after analysing scores of unsolved murders for cases that shared Halliwell’s methods and matched locations he may have been in while working over the UK.
Former murder detective Peter Kirkham said of our findings: “When you have got the modus operandi and the suggestion he was living in the area at the time, it makes it something the police should firm up.
“It’s worth Merseyside police having a good look at, and if those things are correct, setting up a cold case investigation.”
Halliwell is in jail for the murders of Becky Godden, 20, and 22-year-old Sian O’Callahan. They were both dumped in different areas to where they were last seen alive.
In all the unsolved cases, the victims were lone women, probably lured into a vehicle in an urban area and then dumped in a rural spot.
Carol, 32, was snatched from the Bristol red light district in March 1993 and dumped in a canal at Sharpness, Glos.
Pathologists believed she had either suffered a heavy blow to the neck or been strangled.
Halliwell lived 40 miles away at the time and was a narrowboat enthusiast with a good knowledge of the canals.
Carol’s brother-in-law Terry Townsend said her family had noticed similarities in A Confession between the murders the killer was convicted of.
The 71-year-old added: “We did think if he could have been connected with Carol when we saw how he killed that girl by strangulation on the series.
“We have never had any answers so if there are similarities between the way Halliwell carried out his killings and the death of Carol we would urge the police to look into them.
“We have not heard anything from the police for years so perhaps there could even be a forensic breakthrough they could use now, such as his DNA?
“It is hard not knowing what happened to a loved one so anything that can be done to find answers would be welcomed by our family.”
Victim Jackie was a 35-year-old mum who was abducted from Bristol and murdered in 1985.
Mum Yvonne, 33, was found in a shallow grave outside Otley, West Yorks, in 1992. Both she and Jackie were snatched from red light districts.
DS Steve Fulcher, who snared Halliwell in 2011, believes he committed other murders.
Speaking in 2016, the officer said Halliwell told him “police want to interview me about eight murders”.
He added: “There’s no question, from all the information I gathered when I was running this inquiry in 2011, he committed other murders.”
Sian was abducted from the street after leaving the Suju nightclub in Swindon at 2.53am on March 19, 2003.
Her body was found days later near the remote Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire. Halliwell had lured Sian into his taxi before sexually assaulting and murdering her.
The killer met Becky while working as a cabbie in Swindon’s red light district in 2011. Halliwell lured her into his taxi before she was strangled and dumped in a field in Gloucestershire.
Nearby searches of the woodland revealed up to 60 pieces of women’s clothing, buried under two inches of soil, including Becky’s cardigan.
Halliwell was given a full life term in 2016 after being found guilty of Becky’s murder. He had previously been jailed for life after admitting murdering Sian.
A Confession stars Martin Freeman as DS Fulcher, while Joe Absolom plays Halliwell.
The crime series has been watched by more than seven million viewers.
Four more victims?
Julie Finley, 23
Julie Finley was a drug addict whose naked body was found on August 5, 1994, four miles from a village where Halliwell lived.
A white Transit van spotted at the scene on Merseyside at the time matched one allegedly driven by him.
Julie was strangled after vanishing, feared abducted, in Liverpool the night before.
As in the cases of all the killings linked to Halliwell, Julie appeared to have been murdered in a location other than where she was found.
The speculation is that this was an attempt to thwart police inquiries.
Yvonne Fitt, 33
A mother who had worked as a prostitute in Leeds and, like other victims, was abducted from a red light district.
She was last seen on January 16, 1992, in Bradford – 15 miles away from Halliwell’s dad’s home in Huddersfield.
Her murdered body was discovered in a shallow grave outside Otley, West Yorkshire.
Halliwell was thought to be a customer at some of the red light areas where murder victims were found.
Carol Clark, 32
Abduction victim who vanished from the red light district of Bristol in March 2003 before being killed and dumped in a canal 40 miles from where Halliwell lived.
He was a narrowboat enthusiast who knew the canals in that area.
Carol’s family told of wondering if he could be connected to her murder after viewing ITV’s “A Confession”.
They urged police to look into “similarities” between her death and his known killings.
Jackie Waines, 35
A mother-of-three abducted from Bristol’s red light district in April 1985 then dumped on a bridlepath at Frampton Cotterell, Glos.
She was stabbed repeatedly.
Halliwell was at the time living 40 miles away in Highworth, north of Swindon, Wilts.
A few years afterwards while he was in prison for burglaries, Halliwell asked a prisoner how many women a person needed to kill before being considered a serial killer.
