[Part 2 of 3]

West Yorkshire is a county in England that has a population of over 2 million people. It covers an area of over 2,000 km² and is formed by five cities: Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Kirklees, and Calderdale. Each one of these cities has its own history, its own identity, and its own voice.

But during the 1970’s, they were all united. The residents of each city were looking over their shoulders, praying they wouldn’t be the next victim, in one man’s reign of terror who the press named, “The Yorkshire Ripper.”

We left part one with sex workers being warned to take care, to not stand alone and to not take lifts from people they didn’t know.

Unfortunately, many women couldn’t afford to take this advice, and the Ripper would kill again…

The Polish press called it “The perfect murder.”

“One of the most unconventional police investigations ever conducted.”

It was 9:30 am, November 13th, the year 2000. A male caller phoned an advertising company in the city of Wroclaw, Poland.

Wroclaw is the 4th largest city in Poland and has a population of about 635 thousand people. At different times throughout history, Wroclaw has been part of Bohemia, Hungary, The Austrian Empire, Prussia, and Germany. It became part of Poland in 1945 as a result of border changes after the 2nd World War.

The male caller wanted to speak to the owner of the advertising company, Dariusz Janiszewski. He needed three advertising signs made up, and he needed it done urgently.

But it was Dariusz’s mother who answered the call. When she asked further questions about the job, the caller refused to speak to her any further. He demanded to talk to Dariusz.

Dariusz wasn’t in the office, and so his mother gave the caller his cell phone number. She didn’t recognize the caller's voice, and he didn’t leave a name, although she thought he sounded professional.

Dariusz returned to the office later that day. He mentioned that he had been contacted by the male caller about the urgent job and he had arranged to meet with him later that afternoon.

At 4:00 pm Dariusz left the office to meet with the caller. He left his car in the parking lot, which his family said was unusual, as he usually took his car when meeting with customers away from the office.

Dariusz never returned for his car, and he never made it home to his wife.

What followed was one of the most unconventional police investigations ever conducted...

Swindon is a large town in the county of Wiltshire, South West England, about 126km or 78 miles west of London. With a population of about 185 thousand people, it has one of the lower crime rates in the country. Sian O’Callaghan was a 22-year-old woman, who resided in Swindon with her boyfriend, Kevin Reape.

Sian was a bubbly, friendly, caring and loving girl, instantly likeable, beautiful and considerate. On the evening of the 18th of March 2011, Sian had a night out with some friends in the Old Town area of Swindon. They went out for dinner, before visiting two bars, ‘The Spot’ and ‘Baker Street,' after which they went to Suju nightclub.

 

At 2:53 am on the 19th of March, Sian was captured on security footage leaving Suju nightclub alone. She shared a flat with her boyfriend, Kevin about 800 meters away from the club. Sian never made it home.
