Jan­ice We­ston’s body was found by a cy­clist over 30 years ago. She’d been dumped in a ditch by the A1 mo­tor­way in Cam­bridgeshire.

Jan­ice, 36, was a solic­i­tor and part­ner in a well-estab­lished law firm.

She’d been beaten to death with a car jack, which was found in a nearby field.

Jan­ice had last been seen the day be­fore, 10 Septem­ber 1983, at her of­fices in London.

Po­lice found a half-fin­ished meal at her home in Not­ting Hill – it was clear she’d left in a hurry.

Four days on, her blood­stained, sil­ver Alfa Romeo was found in Cam­den, but the killer had left no fin­ger­prints.

Jan­ice’s hus­band An­thony (now dead), was ques­tioned but cleared of any wrong­do­ing – he was in Paris on busi­ness at the time of his wife’s mur­der.

No-one was ever charged.
