Sian’s mother ‘overwhelmed’ by support from American crime TV special viewers

THE mother of Sian O’Callaghan has been left ‘overwhelmed’ by the support shown from overseas after a documentary recounting the 22-year-old’s murder was aired in the USA.

See No Evil: Watch Me Disappear, on the Investigation Discovery channel, revealed CCTV and Automatic Numberplate Recognition (ANPR) was the key in apprehending double-murderer Christopher Halliwell.

Sian disappeared after a night out with friends at the Suju nightclub in Swindon in March 2011.

The documentary revealed suspicion swiftly fell on taxi driver Halliwell after his car was seen on CCTV repeatedly circling the area and pulling up beside Sian in High Street at 2.57am.

A flash of light then obscured the footage and when the car pulled away, Sian had vanished.

In what would turn out to be a fundamental break in the case, CCTV showed a police car by chance driving past the car.

Murdered Elaine O’Hara’s family blast American TV show about her horror killing by sadistic sex killer Graham Dwyer

MURDERED Elaine O’Hara’s family have blasted an American TV show about her horror killing.

Graphic details of Elaine’s slaying at the hands of sadistic sex killer Graham Dwyer have been reconstructed for a major US television crime network.

Evil killer Dwyer

The harrowing case, which shocked the country during the 2015 trial, was outlined in Yes Master, a hard-hitting episode of the Married With Secrets series on the Investigation Discovery channel.

Dramatic re-enactments of the posh killer’s sadomasochistic behaviour — along with the barrage of texts he sent his vulnerable victim — also feature in the grisly episode.

The network says it bases its docu-dramas on true events, aiming to unravel “the truth behind real mysteries”.

But Elaine’s family have revealed they were not consulted about the filming of the show or the broadcast.
