iD magazine - - Nature -

Su­per rec­og­niz­ers work­ing for London’s Metropoli­tan Po­lice Ser­vice deal with images like this on a daily ba­sis. It shows Alice Gross on the day of her mur­der walk­ing in front of a train sta­tion. It was only after watch­ing thou­sands of hours of footage like this that the spe­cial unit was able to iden­tify her and her mur­derer, Ar­nis Zal­ka­lns (right)— and the place where their paths had crossed. The CCTV record­ings show that the per­pe­tra­tor made three at­tempts to stash Alice’s corpse. But the su­per rec­og­niz­ers could not ex­plain why the girl was walk­ing through London alone nearly four hours after leav­ing her home.

FI­NAL PHOTOS It is one of the last signs of life: On Au­gust 28, 2014, Alice Gross passed by a surveil­lance cam­era as she walked through London.
