Episode 3: The Wendy Sewell Murder – The Yorkshire Ripper
In the next episode of ‘True Crime Investigators UK’ we continue to investigate the murder in 1973 of Wendy Sewell in Bakewell Cemetery, asking the question if Stephen Downing didn’t kill Wendy; then who did? Was it a local man, someone known to Wendy? Or perhaps as the retired police intelligence officer Chris Clarke believes, this was actually an unreported attack by the Yorkshire Ripper? Join us as we investigate all this further and come to our final conclusions about the case.
