Good episode? Give it some love!
Rachell Nickell was a beautiful woman walking through Wimbledon Commons July 15, 1992 with her 2 1/2 year old son,  Alex when she was suddenly attacked in broad daylight, leaving her son sitting by her with a piece of paper trying to "stop the blood".
No one saw who did this to Rachel. There was a man named Colin Stag who police thought was behaving suspiciously but other than that, there were no other leads. And as one investigator said, "Getting a description of someone is hard enough from an adult, getting a description from a young traumatized boy who is barely three years old is near impossible.

Lyndon from Murder at Bedtime with Lyndon and Debbie Sue from the Right Shoe pair up again to investigate this baffling and twisted case, and looking at it from afar, go over just how twisted this case became, not only for Rachel and her son and her beloved partner Andre, but for others as well.
