Prostitute Michaela Hague, aged 25, was stabbed to death on November 5, 2001, but her killer has never been traced.

The mum-of-one was left lying in a pool of blood after being stabbed 19 times in her back and neck after being picked up by a punter in Bower Street, off Corporation Street in the city centre, before being driven to an isolated car park on nearby Spitalfields, off Nursery Street.

She managed to whisper a brief description of her attacker to the first police officer on the scene, PC Richard Twigg, telling him that her attacker was white, clean shaven, wore a wedding ring and where he picked her up from.
