On December 17th 2010, Joanna Yeates was seen on CCTV buying cider and a pizza before walking home to her flat in Clifton, Bristol. On December 19th 2010, Joanna’s boyfriend returned home to their flat to find Joanna’s phone and bag there, along with the ciders she had bought from the shop. Joanna, however, was nowhere to be seen. There was no sign of a struggle, no forced entry into her home and no evidence at all to indicate what had happened to her.

This episode explores the police investigation that followed Joanna’s disappearance, the part the media played in casting suspicion on the wrong man and the subsequent trial that followed.
