The death of Jane Doe: A Goldsmiths murder investigation
On 29 January 2016 a young woman named Jane Doe was found dead in Deptford Town Hall Chambers at Goldsmiths, University of London. While friends left touching tributes outside the room in which Jane’s body was discovered by security guard John Locke, a team of trainee investigators settled in for an evening of sleuthing. The recruits received briefings by former police detectives, viewed CCTV footage, examined the crime scene, and had the chance to grill forensic experts and Persons of Interest in their search for clues. Thankfully justice was done, and the guilty party brought to rights. Rest in Peace, Jane.
