    Cold case murder: Woman stabbed, murdered in sexual assault finally gets justice

    May 10, 2016 6:43pm

    A FATHER of four who murdered a teenage girl in a brutal sexually motivated attack has been caught and jailed 32 years after the horrific event.

    Melanie Road, 17, was sexually assaulted and died from 26 stab wounds to her chest and back after the attacker pounced on her metres from her home in Bath in the UK as she made her way home from a nightclub in June 1984.

    She was stripped and assaulted before being abandoned in a pool of blood and left to die.

    Her body was discovered at 5.30am by a milkman and his 10-year-old son.

    Christopher Hampton only finally admitted to the “lengthy and brutal” murder of Ms Road, after he was charged following a DNA breakthrough.

    Mr Hampton was caught in 2015 after police matched DNA from Melanie’s clothing to Mr Hampton’s daughter, Clare, on the national database.
