Manhunt After Missing Joanna's Body Found

Sky News

Police say the body of a young woman found on Christmas Day near Bristol is that of 25-year-old Joanna Yeates.

Avon and Somerset police said they were treating the landscape architect's death as "suspicious".

Miss Yeates, from Clifton, Bristol, went missing on December 17 after a night out with friends.

Her body was found behind a golf course eight days later, four miles from where she lived.

Sky News update

Post  AnnaEsse on Sun 26 Dec - 11:53

Police say the body of a young woman found on Christmas Day near Bristol is that of 25-year-old Joanna Yeates and are treating her death as "suspicious"

An Avon and Somerset police spokesman said: "We are satisfied the body is Joanna Yeates, but this is pending the results of a post mortem which is not expected for at least 24 hours due to the nature of how she was found in such extreme conditions."

Officers have broken the devastating news to Miss Yeates' parents, David and Theresa, but have given no details of the conversation.

Miss Yeates, from Clifton, Bristol, went missing on December 17 after a night out with friends.

Her body was found in a snow-covered country lane behind a golf course eight days later, four miles from where she lived.

Sky News correspondent Peter Sharp, who is in Bristol, said: "Police believe she died under what they are calling 'suspicious circumstances'.

"They are not being more specific than that because the post mortem hasn't officially been concluded because of the condition of the body, which was very frozen."

He said police are expected to soon launch a murder inquiry, pending the cause of death.

"Police will be looking at CCTV pictures further afield and of great interest to them will be Clifton suspension bridge because that is the only way to get from Joanna's flat to where the body was found," Sharp added.

"It is a notorious suicide spot and is heavily decked out in CCTV cameras so police will be going through those to see who has been going over that bridge."

I think we all know enough about abduction to question that particular claim. No signs of break-in, no signs of struggle, no obvious motive. Initial police reports refer to Joanna being fully clothed and don't even hint at sexual abuse. So, abduction seems extremely unlikely.

Keys and phone left in the home had to get there somehow. So, either she took them there and then left again without them or someone else has been in the flat. But why go out again at that time of night? (If of course, it happened on Friday night).

The pizza box is missing. This simply has to be the key to everything. Find the box, find the killer. Either the pizza never made it home, in which case how did the keys and phone get home, or the pizza did make it home, but was known to be incriminating. Why would it be incriminating? Either because of prints, or the suggestion that it may have been shared. My guess is that the box has already been burned.

Sorry, but I have just become so cynical these past 3 1/2 years, that my immediate thoughts go directly to those closest to Joanna. I hope that, for once, this is not the case, but can't help being suspicious now.

I have only just read all the previous post Christmas and I too am saddened by the news that it is Joanna's body. The parents must be devastated.

I am also wondering if she had been followed home on Friday, does the cctv in the supermarket where she bought the pizza show some interest of the shopper in front of her at the self service checkout - maybe this is someone who could have followed her - walked in behind her as she opened the door and didn't quite close it properly, or left it open for kitty to wander in and out ?

Is it possible this was a burglary gone wrong ?

I'm really sorry to hear that this is Jo's body - how awful for her poor parents, other family and friends. I'd really thought this was one case where the missing person might turn up safe and well, but sadly it wasn't to be.

The circumstances are puzzling; hopefully the police already have some ideas, some lines of inquiry to follow. Could Jo have been killed in the flat and then her body removed without being seen? I'm sure the police will comb the flat thoroughly for clues; cadaver dogs would only be useful if the body had remained in the flat for approximately a couple of hours so that the death scent would have had time to develop.

I just hope everyone questioned by the police will cooperate fully; it would be intolerable for her loved ones if anyone refused to do so and thus hindered the investigation in any way.

Do we know where Jo"s parents live? It must be a fair distance away because sky News said earlier today the parents would be travelling up to
Bristol to identify the body. It was said early on that if the Parents were too traumatized to look at the body, the boyfriend would possible go with
them.

The parents live in Southampton. BF was visiting half brother in Sheffield, and returned to find whatever he found. This is a very strange case and i'm a cynic too!

Reading the latest news it's obvious that the parents were 99% sure this would be the outcome when there was no news about her whereabouts for so long. In that case, at least they've got what they hoped for, if their worst expectations turned out to be true. They'll eventually be able to see and hold their daughter, and say goodbye . There was no talk of believing she'd be happy and well looked after by any abductor, or setting up funds to 'search' for her. They didn't want to believe she was dead, but realistically knew that Jo was more than likely not going to come home.

Just had another look at the video of the boyfriend and noticed the way he was screwing up his face, trying to squeeze the tears out of his eyes, but didn't see any..... Reminded me of a certain someone. IMHO

I also pick up something strange about the father, but I assume I am totally wrong there. Just can't put my finger on it.

Police try to unlock riddle of Joanna Yeates's final hours
Identity of frozen body is confirmed, with cause of death expected to be revealed today. Rob Sharp reports from Bristol


Monday, 27 December 2010SHARE PRINTEMAILTEXT SIZE NORMALLARGEEXTRA LARGE
REUTERS
Detectives are scouring CCTV footage shot around the Clifton Suspension Bridge on 17 December


Her handbag sat undisturbed on the kitchen table. Her purse was there. So were her keys and her mobile phone. There was even the receipt for a Tesco Finest margherita pizza – the last meal Joanna Yeates bought. There was no sign of Ms Yeates herself, though, nor of anything to indicate forced entry or a struggle.

Minutes after that simple supermarket transaction 10 days ago, she returned to her home 250 yards away, and then soon afterwards she left without any of her belongings, to disappear from the lives of her boyfriend and her parents for ever.

Detectives have struggled to make sense of the eerie scene – assuming a degree of coercion in her vanishing, but lacking any evidence to support that. Then yesterday brought the news that a frozen corpse, found covered in ice and snow on a grass verge on the outskirts of Bristol, was that of the 25-year-old landscape architect.

The Yeates family were travelling to Bristol from their home in Hampshire yesterday formally to identify her body. "It hasn't been Christmas for us," said her father, David, 63. "It's been surreal, totally unreal."

Mr Yeates was convinced that his daughter was abducted after seeing the bizarre scene at her flat. "We knew what the flat was like," he said. "We know what she does and doesn't do. We were 100 per cent convinced within 30 minutes of arriving at the flat that she had been abducted."

Detectives have moved house by house through the upmarket Clifton area of Bristol where she lived, checking bins and gardens for any evidence that will shed light on her flight.

Detectives still seek answers to two basic questions. How did Ms Yeates cross the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the 400-metre structure spanning the nearby Avon Gorge, which is the main artery linking Clifton to Failand, where her clothed body was found by two dog walkers on Christmas Day?

And where is the margherita pizza, the only item that appears to be missing from her flat?

Detectives are scouring CCTV footage shot around the Clifton Suspension Bridge on 17 December, the night that they believe she disappeared.

On Avon and Somerset Police's unusual pursuit of the pizza clue, Chief Superintendent Jon Stratford said: "There is obviously the possibility that she went somewhere else to eat that pizza. All we know is that we found her possessions inside the flat along with the receipt, but not the pizza. So she did get back in on the Friday evening."

Today should bring the results of a post-mortem examination – delayed until now because the freezing conditions in which her body was found made earlier examination impossible. The hope is to establish a cause of death.

Detectives have also examined the phone and the computer of her boyfriend, Greg Reardon, 27, an architect at the same firm, who reported her missing to police on 19 December, two days after the couple last spoke. Officers have said that they believe he had nothing to do with her disappearance.

Yesterday a white forensics tent stood over the golf course verge where Ms Yeates was found, close to Bristol Football Club's training ground. A police spokeswoman said: "While a formal identification procedure is yet to be completed, police are satisfied that the body is that of the 25-year-old landscape architect Joanna Yeates.

"Officers are treating Joanna's death as suspicious at this stage but will not be able to discuss this further until the results of the post-mortem are known. The police are once again appealing for information, in particular to help fill in the gap between Joanna's disappearance and the discovery of her body."

In Clifton, one of the city's most affluent neighbourhoods, residents reacted with shock. Some said that the uncertainty of Ms Yeates's disappearance had stopped them leaving home after dark.

"Our [degree of] concern really depends on what the police find. If they discover the murder was for personal reasons that's less worrying for us than if it was a random attack," said one neighbour who lives on the same road as the £200,000 flat shared by Ms Yeates and Mr Reardon. "My children were forced to come home to stay with my wife this week because I was out of town and I didn't want her in the house on her own."

Roger Feneley, 77, a retired neighbour of Joanna's living on Canynge Road, said: "She was a very smiley, congenial person, which makes it all the more sad. The police have been very thorough, and rightly so, searching through our bins for any scrap of evidence." Richard Bland, 74, a retired schoolteacher, said: "There are a lot of young professionals around here and a lot of aged residents in houses that are far too big for them. Many of them go to bed early and haven't seen anything, but the police have been around interviewing every man over 16, which has been quite exciting."

Missing person posters bearing Ms Yeates's details cling to Bristol lamp posts, already tattered by the weather. Her body may have been found, but the search for answers has barely begun.

Questions behind events that defy explanation

Who was Joanna Yeates?

Joanna Yeates, 25, a landscape architect who lived and worked in Bristol, went missing on 17 December after meeting work colleagues for a drink at The Ram pub in the city centre. Days later, her father, David, and his wife, Teresa, made an emotional appeal to her to get in touch and wept as they asked any potential kidnapper to set her free. They now say that they already thought she had been killed.

What do we know about her final movements?

She left the pub at about 8pm and began the familiar walk back to her flat at Canynge Road, in the upmarket suburb of Clifton. The journey would usually have taken her 20 minutes but that night she visited a Waitrose supermarket on the way. The last person known to have spoken to her is her best friend, Rebecca Scott. Ms Yeates phoned her at about 8.30pm to arrange a meeting on Christmas Eve.

When was the final sighting of her?

She was recorded on CCTV 10 minutes later as she bought a pizza from a Tesco Express store near her flat. No one is known to have seen or heard from her since. Police believe she did make it home because her coat, keys and mobile phone were later found in her empty apartment.

Who raised the alarm?

A couple walking their dogs found her frozen body at 9am on Christmas morning in a country lane in Failand, North Somerset. The secluded spot, next to a golf course, is three miles from her home. She was reported missing by her boyfriend Greg Reardon, 27, who lived with her and was looking forward to spending their first Christmas together. He called police on 19 December when he returned home from visiting his family in Sheffield and found the flat empty. Police issued an appeal for information the next day. Ms Yeates's parents and boyfriend also made requests for help from the public.

What leads do the police have?

The flat has been searched by forensic scientists, while Mr Reardon's phone and laptop are also being studied. Police will know more about the cause of her death after a post-mortem examination is completed, probably today. Detectives released footage of Ms Yeates buying the pizza from Tesco Express, believing it to be an important clue. While the receipt for the pizza was found in her flat, its box and wrapping were not there.

Could she have been abducted?

Her father is "100 per cent convinced" she was. Half an hour after visiting the apartment, he said: "We knew what the flat was like. We know what it's normally like." Despite the cryptic comments, Mr Yeates would not go into further details, saying he had agreed to police requests not to talk about key aspects of his daughter's disappearance. But officers say they are "keeping an open mind" about the nature of her death.

Could her disappearance be linked to others?

There are similarities with the unsolved case of Claudia Lawrence, 35, who vanished in York last March. Important personal items were also found inside her empty home. The case also has echoes of the death of Melanie Hall, who disappeared after leaving a nightclub in Bath in 1996 and was found only last year. Both she and Ms Yeates were 25 and had short, blonde hair.

I definitely don"t believe in abduction and think the Dad went for that explanation because Jo"s coat and keys were in the Flat. The Police must have checked out the boyfriends alibi and seem satisfied he is not responmsible, but it may be a ploy to trap him. If it turns out that he and Jo had a
row in the Flat and he killed her or it was accidental death, would he have the presence of mind to take the Pizza wrapping when he drove 3 miles to
dispose of the body? Why wouldn"t he drive much further and hide the body and make sure it was properly concealed? The other alternative was that
Jo met someone she knew and he didn"t go in the Supermarket with her and was giving her a lift. He invited her to his place for a drink and they ate
the Pizza there which explains why the wrapping wsn"t anywhere near the Flat. Jo invited him in for a nightcap and a row developed they had a tussle and Jo fell and hit her head on something which caused her death.

No doubt the Police have theories which obviously they are not discussing and when the cause of death is determined a lot of questions will be answered,
but if the post mortem concludes Homicide, it wasn"t premeditated or Jo"s body would have been dumped much further away and well hidden.

Perhaps there were some clues in the flat that point to someone else having been there, thus leading to her parents' certainty that she'd been abducted. I don't know how they could be certain otherwise. The police are probably playing their cards close to their chest at the moment and don't want details publicised. I hope very much it has nothing to do with her boyfriend or indeed anyone she knew, although it's true that it's more worrying for other people in the neighbourhood if this was a truly random killing.

It's very sad to look at her picture, such a lovely vibrant young woman with her whole life ahead of her. She looks a little like one of my nieces, which makes me wonder how her whole family circle will cope with this dreadful occurrence. Obviously her parents and boyfriend will be most affected (assuming no involvement), but it's awful for others who knew her too. Sometimes I wish they'd reintroduce capital punishment for murder; I know all the arguments against it, but when something like this happens - a life ended and others' lives ruined forever, for no reason - I feel we need the strongest deterrent possible.

The Parents are absolutely grief stricken and will never get over this, to me, the boyfriend also appeared heartbroken, but somebody Jo knew was in that Flat with her, or as I say, she met someone she knew on the way home, who gave her a lift to his flat where they ate the pizza and had a couple of drinks
and he drove her home, was invited in and since the boyfriend was not expected home for several hours, anything could have happened.Whatever the post mortem shows will presumably determine the cause of death which will help the enquiry but sadly will not bring back to life the young life or ease her parents pain, not the boyfriends if he is innocent.

well, i think you would have to consider the possibility there may have been an element of unwillingness on her part at some stage so abduction/kidnapping would have to be considered likely. as with all these things you work from the family outwards and yes, they do seem very interested in the pizza.

hmmm, don't know why you got a feeling about daddy. perhaps you'd like to explain. boyfriend? wouldn't be the first time would it? got to add neighbours, friends, casual friends, acquaintances. my guess this'll be solved in the next two weeks or not at all.

Breaking News on sky


Police investigating the death of architect Joanna Yeates are to examine CCTV from one of Britain's most famous landmarks.
Officers will look at footage from Clifton suspension bridge in Bristol, on the main route from Miss Yeates' house to where she was found on Christmas Day.

The 25-year-old's death is being treated as suspicious, with the results of a post-mortem examination due later today.

Miss Yeates, from Clifton, Bristol, had not been seen since December 17 when CCTV showed her in a Tesco store on her way home to her flat in Canynge Road.

A couple walking their dogs on Christmas morning found her body as they walked along Longwood Lane, close to Bristol and Clifton Golf Club, about three miles from where the landscape architect lived.



Clifton Bridge is suspected as the route from Joanna's flat



The Avon Fire Service helped police remove the corpse, which was clothed and covered in snow, from the scene in order to preserve the site for a thorough forensic examination.

Chief Superintendent Jon Stratford said: "Our heartfelt condolences go out to Joanna's family for their loss.

"We have not stopped working hard throughout the Christmas period to find their daughter after she was reported missing," he said.

"Now we will work just as hard to discover exactly what happened to her and how she came to be in Longwood Lane on Christmas morning.



Parents David and Theresa Yeates



Before the grim discovery, Miss Yeates' father said he "would be relieved" if the body was his daughter so they would have the opportunity to say goodbye.

David Yeates said: "It hasn't been a Christmas for us. I don't know what it's been. It's been surreal, totally unreal.

"In truth we feel like we hope ... we would be relieved if it was her.

"We don't want to go to our graves wondering where she is and not being given the chance to say goodbye to her," Mr Yeates said.

Tributes have since been paid to Miss Yeates - known as Jo - on Facebook.

Bec Wood wrote: "Rest In Peace Jo. You will always be loved and remembered for being so beautiful, kind, successful, and lovely. You made Greg so happy. Our thoughts are with Greg, your parents and all of your families and friends. We will miss you Jo, and hope that you have peace now. Love and prayers xxxxxx"



Miss Yeates' body was found near Bristol and Clifton Golf Club



Michael Whitcher added: "Rest in peace little Jo, we will miss you always. My heart and thoughts go out to her family, and I am thankful I knew you. God bless xxx".

The last known sighting of Miss Yeates was on CCTV as she bought a pizza at a branch of Tesco Express in the Clifton area, after making her way home from the Ram pub in Park Street at about 8pm after a night out with work colleagues.

On her way home she rang her best friend Rebecca Scott to arrange to meet on Christmas Eve.

Miss Yeates lived with her boyfriend Greg Reardon, 27, who reported her missing on Sunday night after returning home from a weekend away in Sheffield visiting family.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday, Mr Reardon's mother, Lydia, from Ilfracombe, Devon, said Miss Yeates and her son were planning to get married and their family Christmas had been shattered by her disappearance.

She said: "She is a lovely, gorgeous girl. Greg has brought her home and she's stayed with us a few times. They've been together for a couple of years now.

"Greg is so fond of her. We thought that when he finished getting the last of his qualifications they would get engaged."

I don't understand why people suspect Jo's poor father. All I saw was a man consumed by grief struggling to overcome his emotions in order to appeal for his daughter's safe return. He seemed to be a broken man.

As for the boyfriend, he has to be the prime suspect, if merely from a statistical point of view. However, some of his words were rather odd IMO. For example, he said he thought he and Jo would be together forever and that they were planning to go to Jo's parents' home for Christmas - 'Always a big deal for a boyfriend'. The use of the past tense and the regret for things which weren't to be were somewhat strange, considering at the time Jo was only missing. Perhaps Jo had changed her mind about him and this lead to her death. Sadly it wouldn't be the first time that a woman has been killed for rejecting someone..

If the boyfriend is responsible, his car will probably be spotted on CCTV film from the bridge.

By the way, just read that the Clifton Suspension Bridge is the most direct, but not the only route from Jo's home to the place where her body was dumped.

Yes, I"m sure CCTV footage of the night Jo went missing will be scrutinised, plus for the day/night the boyfriend was returning to Bristol from Sheffield
25 Cameras in all are in use across the bridge and footage of pedestrians and Drivers are to be scrutinised. .

Mrs Reardon says they were going to "get engaged", not married . Just been reported , the body has still not thawed , but expected in the next few
hours, a member of Jo"s family is expected to travel to Bristol again today to make identification.
