Series 2, Episode 3 • What If It's Not Murder?
In this episode we hear more from the police officer who was in charge of the investigation. She describes the police investigation in detail and is challenged on some of her views and theories.
With the help of solicitor David Wells, we explore some of the key evidence that the police relied on and look to challenge some of the assumptions made.
We also explore in greater detail the injuries that Sana had to her body carefully considering each wound. We consider the view of the pathologist Dr Lumb, who stated that he could not exclude the possibility that the injuries were inflicted by one or more assailants in an attempt to mimic self-inflicted injuries. We question what this means and how he came up with this view.
This episode also looks at what the police did in identifying and then ruling out other suspects, and Mindy’s mother gives an emotional account of the day that the police arrived at her door to arrest her daughter on suspicion of murder, and how she found out that her daughter had been charged.
Careful consideration is given to the crime scene and the forensic evidence that was deduced from it by the blood pattern experts.
