Wiltshire Police has been criticised by the mother of a murder victim and a former detective. Karen Edwards says it took too long for officers to bring her daughter's killer to justice.
The former detective who caught double murderer Christopher Halliwell says Wiltshire Police has failed to fully investigate his crimes. Steve Fulcher has described how the force acted as a 'scandal.'>Mr Fulcher - who was found guilty of gross misconduct and left the force - says he believes Halliwell may have had other victims.
Becky's mother, Karen Edwards has spoken out about the lack of support she felt when bringing the case to court.
Ms Edwards says she thinks of her daughter each and everyday.
Halliwell was already serving a life-sentence for the murder of 22-year-old Sian O'Callaghan, who he abducted in his taxi as she made her way home from a night out in Swindon in March 2011.
In response to Mr Fulcher's claims, the Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police has defended the force's actions.
Let me make it clear, the team which finally brought Halliwell to justice should be congratulated and commended as they undoubtedly brought this investigation from the edge of a precipice to a safe conclusion.
Chief Constable Mike Veale also refutes any other links to more victims.
There has been much speculation in the press in relation to other women who may or may not have been a victim of Halliwell. This speculation is not helpful and is very distressing to the families involved. At this time Wiltshire Police has not uncovered any links between Halliwell and any other murders across the country.
