Helen Fleet, a 66-year-old widow who lived in Osborne Road in Weston-super-Mare was stabbed, beaten and strangled while walking her dog in Worlebury Woods...

A retired factory inspector, Helen loved taking her dogs for regular walks in Weston Woods. On the day she died, March 28, 1987, she had left her blue Datsun car in Worlebury Hill Road, near the entrance to the woods, and gone for a stroll with white West Highland terrier Bilbow and brown mongrel Cindy...

Two people reported hearing a scream in the woods at 12.20pm that Saturday and Mrs Fleet's body was found 20 minutes later by a friend, Sylvia Lewis, who lived in Worle, and who had been alerted by the barking of the dogs.

But the work of the police was hampered by the lack of an obvious motive, the widow had not been robbed and there was no indication of sexual assault.

Helen Fleet was walking her dogs through Worlebury Woods near Weston-super-Mare when she was stabbed ten times, battered around the head and strangled to death.

The brutal attack on the 66-year-old took place on March 28, 1987, but nearly 30 years later her killer has never been found...

They soon began working on a theory that Mrs Fleet may have known her killer after reports that she had been chatting to a youth two days before the murder... Witnesses also spotted another two youths running out of the woods, around 30 minutes after the murder...

Just last year retired police officer Chris Clark said he believed Mrs Fleet could have been the first victim of a serial killer.

He told national papers that her murder had a stark resemblance to the murders of Kate Bushell, 14, from Exmouth, Devon and 41-year-old Lyn Bryant in Cornwall, both of which remain unsolved.
