91 - The Abduction of Stephanie Slater and Murder by the River Lark

The Abduction of Stephanie Slater and Murder by the River Lark...

Michael Sams was a one legged rapist, murderer and piss-poor extortion artist. After he abducted real estate agent Stephanie Slater, the police thought she was dead for sure, but she courageously managed to survive 8 days in his captivity.

In 2005, the small village of Fornham St Martin in Suffolk was horrified when the scorched body of Dawn Walker was found by the River Lark. Who would murder such a loved 37 year old in such a heinous way? All evidence pointed towards her boyfriend Kevin Nunn, but if he did it, did he act alone? And was the circumstantial evidence they had against him compelling enough for a conviction?
