Alice’s body is still there, lying in a bathroom awash with blood, and with horrific injuries to her neck that could not be self-inflicted. Sporting protective clothing to avoid contaminating the crime scene, she looks over the rest of the flat, establishing that the front door is locked, and there are footwear marks on the sofa below the windowsill of the open window.These correspond with Maxine’s account of how she entered the flat through the window after finding the front door locked from the inside, but DCI Theaker worries they look too big and orders Maxine’s footwear to be seized.It’s quite easy to go down one path and focus your attention on a certain person.I want to get a clear picture in my mind that what I’m being told is the truth.’ DCI Theaker arrives at the scene to examine the evidence for herself.One year ago today, 24-year-old Alice Ruggles was found by her flatmate lying in a pool of blood at her home. The horrifying discovery was the starting point of what would prove to be a harrowing murder investigation — one which for the first time was intimately tracked by body cameras worn by members of the homicide squad investigating the crime, who also had cameras mounted in their cars.Now the footage is featuring in a compelling ITV documentary which follows the efforts of the murder squad to catch Alice’s killer, and which shows the vital nature of decisions made in the first hour after a major crime has been committed, when evidence is fresh and uncontaminated.
They show Alice last used her phone at 18.01 on October 12 to send a Whats App message to a friend.Dhillon has been in custody for 35 hours, and DCI Theaker has only one hour left to provide concrete evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service or she will have to release him.With forensic evidence still outstanding, she is relying on his police interviews and phone data to be enough — and with just seven minutes to spare the CPS agrees. The murder team reconvene in the major incident room.She’s frustrated — while CCTV footage now shows Dhillon’s white BMW passing by Alice’s house at around the time of her death, the police still have no forensics tying him to the scene. The pressure rises when forensics confirm that there is blood on the wristband — but it will take hours before DNA analysts can confirm whose it is.
Dhillon was due to be released in the early hours, but Theaker has managed to convince her superintendent that she has reason to keep him in custody and is granted a 12-hour extension.
DCI Theaker’s team are convinced Dhillon has taken her phone, but they need to prove it.‘You don’t know what’s going to become important — it could be something as simple as what hand something was in,’ says DS Joanne Brooks.
