Mother pleads for help after Halliwell escapes justice over second murder

The mother of Becky Godden-Edwards has appealed for help in getting justice for her death.

It has emerged that a police blunder meant a charge relating to Becky, against taxi driver Christopher Halliwell, had to be withdrawn.

Karen Edwards said; "after a very complicated and painful journey over the last eighteen months, Sian's family have today had the justice for the murder of their beautiful daughter. However our families' fight for justice for Becky has only just begun.

"I would like the full support of you all to help me get justice for my daughter Becky."
