Livi Bellfield, the man who murdered Milly Dowler, Marsha McDonnell and Amelie Delagrange
The powerfully-built nightclub bouncer kidnapped and murdered 13 year old Milly Dowler as she walked home from school in broad daylight. She had stopped for a bag of chips with friends at a railway station cafe. The case horrified the nation when six months later her body was found 25 miles away by mushroom pickers in a quiet wood in the Hampshire countryside. Her abduction and death was described as ‘every parent’s nightmare’.
He also murdered, in an equally horrendous manner, 19-year-old Marsha McDonnell and 22-year-old French student Amelie Delagrange with blows to the head after they got off late-night buses in South London. He attempted to kill Kate Sheedy, an 18 year old he deliberately hit with his car as she walked home shortly after midnight, before reversing over her body. She survived only after major surgery in hospital.
Levi Bellfield was one of the most notorious killers of his time. His crimes, his dramatic trials at the Old Bailey, plus the stories of his young victims and the devastating impact on their families are examined in detail in this chilling study of the violent deaths and danger to innocent young girls at the hands of a total stranger
