Case Ref : 20110326, Godden, Rebecca

Official Narrative

A convicted killer has been found guilty of murdering missing woman Becky Godden five years after initially escaping justice due to police blunders.

Christopher Halliwell, 52, initially admitted the double murder of Becky Godden and Sian O'Callaghan from Swindon in 2011.

But he evaded justice for killing Miss Godden until now due to a police error.

Miss Godden's mother thanked police "for bringing my little girl home".

A jury at Bristol Crown Court took less than three hours to find him guilty.

Email received

We are the family of Rebecca Godden who was murdered circa 2003 in Swindon. You may have heard of this case in recent years. You may be aware that Christopher Halliwell was found guilty of the crime, however, we as the family on Becky's father's side do not believe he did it. We believe there is a cover up/corruption by Wiltshire constabulary to protect the guilty party. We have been banging our heads against a brick wall since 2011 but to no avail.

If you feel this is a story you'd like to cover then please get in contact.
