The UK Hammer Murders
In March 2006, after an intensive police investigation, a man was charged with the murder of French student Amelie Delagrange. Police identified the man as Levi Bellfield, 37, a father of three who worked as a bouncer and wheel-clamper in West London, the BBC News reported. Bellfield also faced a series of other charges ranging from kidnap to attempted murder.
Bellfield was also indicted for the attempted murder and grievous bodily harm of hairdresser Irma Dragoshi, 33. Dragoshi was viciously attacked at Longford Village, west London on December 16, 2003 after being struck on the head with a blunt instrument. She eventually recovered from her life-threatening physical injuries, although the psychological scars remain.
