In the very early morning hours of March 19th, 2011, 22 year old Sian O’Callaghan decided to walk back to her apartment after a night out at a club in Swindon, England; a town with a reputation for its safe streets.  It’s the reason Sian thought nothing of it to make the short walk back to her apartment by herself that night, totally unaware a predator was lurking in the shadows.
