#170 - The Girl with a Smile for Everyone - Part One

On the far eastern edge of Regent’s Park is Cumberland Green on the corner of Chester Road and the Outer Circle. It’s a non-descript expanse of grass with several intersecting paths and few trees.

On Wednesday 1st October 1947, at roughly 10:30pm, the body of a woman was discovered here. Her name was Gladys Hanrahan, also known as ‘Renée’, a 35-year-old book-keeper who worked in a local dairy. She was shy, quiet and polite; she never stayed out late, she always told her family where she was going, and she never walked through dark parks alone, and especially not with strangers.

So, why was Gladys Hanrahan murdered and who by?
