Silenced: Lucy McHugh
Play • 32 min
In July of 2018, 13 year old Lucy McHugh left her home in Mansel Road East, Southampton just before 9am. CCTV captured her walking intently in the direction of a Sports Centre nearby. The next morning her body was discovered in a wooded area overlooking the same sports ground. An arrest was made almost immediately but obstructions in the investigation meant that her killer wasn’t brought to justice until a year later.
