Sian O’Callaghan Murder: Did The Pagan Supermoon Make Chris Halliwell Do It? And Other Theories

by | 25th, March 2011

SIAN O’Callaghan : When the 22-year-old Swindon woman was merely missing only three newspapers all red-tops had featured her on their front pages: The Sun , The Mirror and The Star . Now she has been found dead and Chris Halliwell has been arrested in connection with her disappearance and death the story grows:

March 22 : The Sun said that missing Sian had been seen on CCTV.
March 22 : “Where is Sian” Daily Mirror
March 23 : “£20,000 reward to find missing clubber” Daily Mirror
March 24: “Sian: ‘No Girl’s safe.’” – Daily Star

Today, one day after her body was found in rural Oxfordshire, only the Guardian and Independent do not feature Sian O’Callghan on their front pages.

Det Supt Steve Fulcher, who is leading the inquiry, tells media:

“A 47–year–old man from Swindon is in custody, having been arrested for kidnap and two murders. The location of two bodies have been identified to me by this individual, one of whom has yet to be identified formally, but I am quite clear is Sian.”

Two murders. Who is the other person? The Telegraph speculates:

Officers in the case have also been approached by police investigating the murder of hospital worker Melanie Hall, 25, who was last seen leaving a Bath nightclub in 1996 before her remains were found near the M5 in Gloucestershire thirteen years later.

That would be the same Melanie Hall who was linked in print to the death of Joanna Yeates. No connection was found then. There are other unsolved murders in the area, but Miss Hall was blonde.

You may recall when the Daily Mail Reporter” said the case held:

…striking similarities’ between Miss Yeates’s disappearance and the unsolved murder of Melanie Hall

Only, there weren’t. Other than that a photogenic young woman had died. Miss Hall went missing on a night out. But she had not been the only one to have done so.

What other unsolved murders might be linked to Chris Halliwell
