The Mr. Kipper Suspect
On July 28, 1986 a young estate agent named Suzy Lamplugh kept an appointment to meet with a mysterious prospective tenant named Mr. Kipper, and subsequently went missing. Despite a lengthy police investigation, the attractive young woman was never seen again. There were several crimes committed against young women around the same time as Suzy’s disappearance, one of whom was murdered just two months before Suzy went missing, whilst another suffered a horrific rape some three months later. The next year in October 1987, a man attempted to kidnap Julia Holman, the day before Shirley Banks went missing. Her decomposed body was eventually found in April 1988. It is believed these crimes were perpetrated by a charming, handsome, yet violent rapist who was stalking, kidnapping and murdering young women. This man was John Cannan, and he is the only person considered as the prime suspect in these unsolved murders.
