A new two-part documentary that recounts the infamous disappearance of estate agent Suzy Lamplugh is to be broadcast next week including both new interviews with her surviving family and claims made by a new witness.
Episode 1 is due to be broadcast on Sky on 14th March and, its producers promise, will use compelling new evidence to ‘unravel Suzy’s case and her disappearance’.
Fulham, London-based sales negotiator Lamplugh was just 25 when she disappeared on July 28th 1986 after leaving her Sturgis Estate Agents branch to meet a ‘Mr Kipper’ to view a property on Shorrods Road.
She was last seen getting into her car with a man before disappearing into thin air. Lamplugh was declared ‘presumed dead’ in 1993. She would have turned 60 this year.
Multiple official and unofficial police, newspaper and TV investigations have failed to either definitely prove who killed Lamplugh or discover the location of her remains, although serial sex offender John Cannan has been named as the most likely candidate.
The recent TV investigation came just three months ago; the December, 2020 Channel 5 documentary, ‘The Vanishing of Suzy Lamplugh’ (pictured above).
But the new and longer Sky documentary revisits the story of her disappearance and the ensuing police investigations in gripping detail, as well as featuring an interview with her brother, Jim.
He claims to have spoken to a woman who has credible evidence that Cannan was seen struggling with suitcase at 5am in the morning at the side of the Grand Union canal in Brentford a few days after Lamplugh disappeared.
The Suzy Lamplugh Mystery will begin at 9pm, 14th March on Sky Crime.
