It came out of the blue.
24 February 1994 was a nondescript Thursday afternoon. In the newsroom of the local evening newspaper, the Gloucester Citizen, reporters were sitting around trying to come up with story ideas.
Someone from the paper's circulation department came up to the newsroom to pass on a tit-bit of information.
One of the newspaper boys had reported seeing policemen digging up the back garden of a house in a side street not far from the city centre. The journalists swung into action.
The full SICK story:
Where is the death penalty when you need it?
