Description

He is a man who may well carry his secrets to the grave, even though he was caught by DNA 33 years after he murdered a young schoolboy in Surrey. Further, the police now believe he may be connected to up to 25 unsolved child murders, making him one of the worst child sex attackers ever, but they have failed to make progress since jailing him for life in 2001. The story of Brian Lunn Field is a remarkable one, dating back to the 1960s.
