Investigation unearths compelling evidence serial killer carried out unsolved murder of Louise Kay

Louise Kay was 18 when she disappeared in Eastbourne in 1988

A new investigation has unearthed compelling evidence that serial killer Peter Tobin carried out the unsolved murder of a Sussex teenager.

Louise Kay was just 18 when she disappeared along with her distinctive car after a night out in Eastbourne in 1988, 30 years ago.

In an ITV documentary to air on Thursday 5th April former detective, Mark Williams-Thomas, reveals Tobin is also his prime suspect in the 'cold-case' killing of Sussex art student Jessie Earl.

Mark Williams-Thomas believes reveals Louise may be buried at an address in Brighton where Tobin once lived.

It was a property not searched by police, who did search former Tobin homes in Brighton and Portslade without result.

Tobin, who lived in Sussex, Hampshire and Kent, is currently serving a whole life sentence after convicted of the murders of three young women including Vicky Hamilton and Dinah McNicol.

Vicky and Dinah's bodies were found when police excavated Tobin's former home in Margate.

Dinah disappeared after going to a music festival at Liphook on the Sussex-Hampshire border in 1991.

The documentary series starting tonight will link Tobin to many more unsolved murders and missing people.

In boasts made in prison the psychopath has reportedly claimed 48 victims.

Sussex Police did not take part in the documentary.

However, they've told us they "will always examine any new information or forensic opportunities which might lead to new lines of enquiry whenever they arise".

But, "currently no new information has been provided in these cases and there are no outstanding lines of enquiry".
