    Angus Sinclair was convicted last month of the 1977 cold case rape and murder of 17-year-olds Christine Eadie and Helen Scott, after the girls went out to The World's End nightclub in Edinburgh, Scotland. Their strangled bodies were found the next day

    He remained free for decades, but police have now revealed that in 2007, they discovered a car in a water-filled quarry. Inside was a 'chilling' kidnap kit of different-sized handcuffs, as well as children's clothing. The car was one Sinclair bought immediately after the killings of the girls, to replace the camper he had used to transport them. He only kept the new vehicle a few months before dumping it in the quarry.

    Sadly, police were unable to obtain DNA from the clothing or cuffs because they'd been in water for nearly 30 years, so it's not known if he had further victims. The vehicle and contents were not brought up during the 'World's End' murder trial, as it wasn't deemed to be related.
