Four young women. Four decades. Four brutal murders. All unsolved.

In a mystery that has spanned decades, four young women were brutally murdered over the course of 40 years, leaving behind only family and unanswered questions.

BBC’s new four-part true crime documentary series will forensically rebuild the timeline of the murders of the four women and the investigations that followed.

Each episode, highlighting a different woman, will feature insights from surviving family members, police officers, journalists, and criminologists.
