Kent: The Tunbridge Wells Bedsit Murders

In 1987 in Tunbridge Wells, just south of Dartford, two young women were murdered five months apart. Both lived alone in bedsits less than a mile from one another, both worked on Camden Road, both ate lunch at the same cafe. The women didn’t know each other, but they will forever be remembered together for their murderer was never caught. In 2007, with advances in forensics, a full DNA profile was obtained from minute evidence from one of the crime scenes. But would the killer be caught or is he still out there?
