    The witnesses also included a van driver, and a farm labourer who had to manoeuvre his car past the killer’s vehicle on a bend in a narrow lane. Putting together all the information from the eight eye-witnesses, the man appeared to be 50 to 55, thick-set, about 5ft 8in, with a tanned, oval face and an appearance that suggested he could be Italian. Unusually for a man, his greying hair was parted on the right.

    THAT, is a very good discription.

    EXTRACT FROM HEMEL TODAY

    Re - The the story of the murder of Diana Suttey.
    The case dominated the headlines across the country with a nationwide
    hunt for Mrs Suttey's killer being carried out.
    Mr Heslop, 62, who lives in Leverstock Green said he became
    interested in the case when he found out it was still unsolved.
    He said: "It had some unusual features. It was the first case to have
    a photo fit produced of the suspected murderer and also to use a line
    up of cars for witnesses to try and identify, and of course it's
    still unsolved."
    A number of people witnessed the body being dumped and The Gazette
    dubbed the crime `the kid gloves murder' after the gloves the
    murderer was said to have been wearing.
    Mr Heslop said: "It was an amazing crime because there were so many
    people, kids, people walking their dogs, mums pushing pushchairs, who
    actually probably saw the killer and the body being dumped.
    "I'm not suggesting the book will help solve it but you never know.
    The murderer was described as middle aged by the children who saw him
    and so he could be around 85 years-old now, but you never know."

    The following is an edited version of the Suttey murder from Mr
    Heslop's book.

    The quiet, narrow lanes to the east of Hemel Hempstead are largely
    unchanged over the years, save for the M1 motorway ....
