If you were in the Lansdowne suburb of Bournemouth in the early hours of Saturday morning, May 3rd, 1986, you may have seen a drunken woman walking the pavements barefooted. She was Sandra Court, 27, and it’s known that she left a Poole nightclub earlier that night.

Her body was found at first light in a slow-moving stream by the Avon Causeway, near Hurn, Christchurch, which is several miles away from Lansdowne. No semen traces were identified, but they may have been washed away by the water.

Some of Sandra’s belongings were found strewn about nearby. One of her shoes and other personal effects found by the A31 near Picket Post were possibly thrown from a car heading for Southampton.
