Elle Edwards murder


It is a familiar scenario to Dr Ditcham; the former detective chief inspector now works for the Royal United Services Institute, an independent think tank which researches security issues including organised crime. He said the weapon shows it was unlikely that Chapman's claims that he was a low-level drug dealer and not part of an organised crime group were true. "This is serious weaponry and used by career criminals and organised criminals as well, not local street-level drug dealers. "I would find that incongruous and difficult to marry that up with the the facts."
