CHRISTOPHER Halliwell has been linked with the deaths of four girls across the country.

The Swindon cab driver is serving two life sentences for murdering Sian O’Callaghan and Becky Godden-Edwards.

Former detective Steve Fulcher, who led the initial police inquiry into Sian’s disappearance in 2011, has previously spoken of his suspicion that Halliwell was responsible for other deaths. Karen Edwards, the mother of victim Becky, said this month she believes Halliwell killed at least 20 other girls.

In 2014, police discovered a stash of 60 items of clothing – including boots belonging to Sian O’Callaghan. Mr Fulcher said in his 2017 book Catching a Serial Killer he thought the hoard could be Halliwell’s hoard of trophies collected from his victim.

Now, reporters on the Daily Mirror claim to have found four murder victims with possible links to Halliwell.

They are:

  • Julie Finley, 23, was found in a Merseyside field in August 1994 four miles from a village where Halliwell lived. Julie was strangled.
  • Yvonne Fitt, 33, had worked as a prostitute in Leeds, near Halliwell’s dad’s home in Huddersfield. She disappeared in January 1992. She was murdered and her body dumped in a shallow grave near Otley, West Yorkshire.
  • Carol Clark, 32, was abducted from Bristol’s red light district in March 2003. She was killed and dumped in a canal.

Brother-in-law Terry Townsend, 71, told the Daily Mirror they had noticed similarities between Carol’s death and those of Sian and Becky after watching A Confession: “We did think if he could have been connected with Carol when we saw how he killed that girl by strangulation on the series.

"We have never had any answers so if there are similarities between the way Halliwell carried out his killings and the death of Carol we would urge the police to look into them.

  • Jackie Waines, 35, was snatched from Bristol’s red light district in 1985. Her body was left on a bridleway in Frampton Cotterell, Gloucestershire.
