THE BUNNY GIRL & THE SCHOOLGIRL

Chat - - True-life -

Eve Strat­ford worked as a Bunny Girl at the Play­boy Club in Park Lane and had been pho­tographed with the likes of Eric More­cambe and Sid James. But on 18 March 1975, her boyfriend found her dead on the bed­room floor of their flat in Ley­ton, east Lon­don. She’d been tied up, gagged, her throat cut from ear to ear. She’d last been seen alive walk­ing alone in the snow near her home around 4pm, yet the case went cold. On 3 Septem­ber 1975, six months later, schoolgirl Lynne Wee­don, 16, was tak­ing a short­cut to her home in Houn­slow, when she was bat­tered over the head, thrown over a fence into an elec­tric­ity sub­sta­tion, and raped. She was found alive the fol­low­ing morn­ing, but never re­gained con­scious­ness, and died a week later. In Septem­ber 2015, po­lice linked the cases us­ing new DNA tech­niques, but a fresh ap­peal threw up no leads.
