Convicted killer Christopher Halliwell may be linked to the unsolved murder of Claudia Lawrence, He was recently sentenced for the murder of Becky Godden.
The Detective investigating the murder of Godden believes his pattern of behaviour also fits that of the disappearances of Claudia Lawrence.
Halliwell aged 52 abducted Sain O’Callaghan from a Swindon nightclub before murdering her in March 2011.
While he was serving a life sentence for her murder he was further convicted and sentenced to another life term for the murder of Becky Godden aged 20 in 2003.
Steve Fulcher a former detective superintendent has said that after Halliwell confessed to both murders the links to the area in which Miss Lawrence went missing should now be investigated.
Claudia Lawrence a 35-year-old chef was last seen on March 18th, 2009 and was reporting missing after she failed to attend work in York.
North Yorkshire Police believe she was murdered but her body was never found.
Halliwell’s father lived streets away from where Claudia went missing Mr Fulcher told the Sunday Express.
Saying “It fits his pattern of behaviour – abducting women walking alone either late at night or early in the morning.”
Mr Fulcher was found guilty of gross misconduct by a police disciplinary panel after he was found he failed to correctly caution Hallowell, therefore breaching police rules for interviewing a suspect.
During this time Halliwell made confessions to Mr Fulcher which were ruled inadmissable by a High Court judge but Miss Godden’s mother Karen Edwards said her daughter’s body may never have been found if Mr Fulcher had not acted in the way he had.
