NYE on Channel 4
On Thursday the 16th of February at 10.00pm, Channel 4 will broadcast a programme in their “In the footsteps of Killers” series, in which Emilia Fox and the UK’s leading criminologist Professor David Wilson investigate famous unsolved murder cases, looking for new leads that the original investigations may have missed.
In the programme, Professor Wilson, criminologist Dr Graham Hill and Emilia examine the case of Mrs Trevaline Evans, who left a note saying “back in two minutes” on the door of her Llangollen antiques shop in 1990 – and disappeared.
The case has been covered by the NYE and our coverage can be seen below.
The programme reveals new information on the disappearance, which North Wales Police have classified as a murder. It includes an interview with NYE Crime Reporter TIM HICKS, who has worked with NYE contributor and retired Police Intelligence Officer Chris Clark on investigating serial killer Christopher Halliwell.
They have conducted extensive research into a number of unsolved murder cases and disappearances, discussing the possibility that they are connected to Christopher Halliwell.
“I was very happy to be asked to participate in the programme and enjoyed working on a piece of cutting-edge journalism with David and the team from Alaska TV. I think the programme has moved the investigation into Trevaline’s murder on and put Christopher Halliwell firmly in the frame as a strong suspect.
Trevaline’s murder has implications for the investigation into the disappearance of York Chef Claudia Lawrence. I will be covering these in a follow up article once the programme has been broadcasted. I hope all our police readers will take the time to watch the programme.”
This shows the quality of the NYE’s investigative journalism, how widely the NYE is read and how highly it is regarded. The NYE is very proud that its particular brand of investigative journalism has brought more media attention to this case, which Tim believes is still solvable.
Evelyn Foley’s review of “The New Millennium Serial Killer” by Chris Clark and Bethan Trueman which covers the various murders that Halliwell was convicted of can be read below.
