    The bus footage.
    I’ve tried to upload a screen shot, if you let the bus footage run until you get to the two vehicles parked outside 46 Heworth road and take a screen shot you will see a large man approaching the front vehicle - I have a screen shot of him but file size too big so can’t upload - try it for yourself

    Well did he take her the longer route ?
    His word for it now but since he is your friend can you have an educated guess ?

    Spat in his face! people can accidentally do this when drunk or expressing annoyance especially if taken the wrong route, even worry or panic imo x

    Her finances gave never added up, lodger or not and never will, either she was getting money from her dad or she had an outside source of income

    I think it is a fair chance the outside income activity lead to her demise, what that income derived from is open to speculation, but I think it can be narrowed down to 2 possibilities, unless as I say her dad was giving her money

    Is that an assumption or a fact?

    It certainly appears to be a face behind the car.
    I have been reviewing the footage again and I am starting to lean towards the mystery car being the maroon Volvo V40 which features in Major Lang’s report. Registration L33**M. The near side rear light has the horizontal clear indicator and the horizontal section on the bumper is noticeable. The fact they have a lot of glass in the tailgate makes it more difficult to see the shape which initially lead me to the Audi TT. The other part is the o/s rear wheel catching the light. I felt this may have been a sporty design wheel but looking at the Volvo wheel design it was a light silver and more showy than I would have expected.
    Does this then tie in with the witness statement surrounding a couple arguing by a maroon car? I dismissed this as a red herring but surely the full CCTV footage and phone data would support this.

    we have most of the pieces of the puzzle but without all the untouched CCTV from all cameras we are going to struggle to piece them together

    The police have looked at lots of things and after 12 years have come up with nothing, I'm not overly sure I place a lot of credence in anything they say

    Okay a couple of final points from me. From viewing google SV the maroon Volvo is parked outside 19HP and in different positions suggesting that’s where the owner lived. The white Astra van ( Concrete grinding) is parked in the cul-de-sac next to number 19. So they are both locals but would the Volvo need to park directly outside 46 on Wednesday evening? Surely you would park outside your own house and hop over the fence into the NH if you fancied a pint? Almost having two cars blocking her front door seems intentional, would bus CCTV from earlier in the week show cars parked at 46?

    Major Lang’s report suggests the silver car heading past the post office was a Renault. I don’t recognise the shape as a Renault perhaps more Mercedes. There is a silver Toyota parked next door to number 19 but I am unsure if the shape matches up.

    I would expect the properties and cars to have been searched so I can see why the NYP would bring in the suspects. Without a crime scene you can understand that trying to break into what appears to be an incestuous group so difficult.

    I don't know, he said that she refused to pay him and spat at him because he took the longer route but he said that had taken her the way she had requested. If she was really drunk and it was dark she might have been mistaken.

    It begs the question: did she pay him in the end ?
    Hmm is there anything else you forgot to mention lol
    Did she produce a gun when refusing to pay him ?
    I’m sorry I fail to see why you did not mention the fact she refused to pay him in your first post ?
    But it has been more than 12 years bless you .
    I assume he spoke to the police about the incident ?

    The way he described it was as thought it was done on purpose. But I guess 12 years has passed so maybe memory gets a little cloudy after a long time.

    I mentioned it because it really surprised me - after the way almost everyone described her it doesn't really seem to fit in. There is being drunk and maybe getting a little 'bitchy' (someone said she would pull faces behind people's backs when drunk, but I'm not sure which friend it was or which article I read it in) but then there is being outright rude. Her character was pulled apart by the media so I didn't want to contribute to that by talking about this 'spitting' incident, but i don't have any reason to think that he made it up. It is an anecdotal bit of evidence (which I admit isn't always reliable) but could be thrown into the mix as to working out a motive - if it wasn't the jealous lover or partner of a lover, then maybe she had she said or done something that might have lead to what happened.

    I just want to clarify though, I don't think for a second that whatever happened to her was justified because of something she said or did.

    Is he 100% sure it was her? Seems a bit out of character even if drunk

    But @cheddarcat revelation could be very important... the driver would never have expected to be quoted on WS !
