UK SUZY LAMPLUGH: Missing from London, UK - 28 July 1986 - Age 25

Discussion in 'Europe: Missing & Unidentified' started by Romulus, Apr 11, 2019.

    Lamplugh was an estate agent who was reported missing after attending an appointment with someone calling himself "Mr Kipper", to show him round a house in Fulham. Her office diary recorded the details of the appointment as: "12.45 Mr. Kipper – 37 Shorrolds Road O/S", where the "O/S" annotation means "outside the property". Witnesses reported seeing a woman, who resembled Lamplugh, arguing with a man in Shorrolds Road and then getting into a car. Her white Ford Fiesta (registration: B396 GAN) was found on the night of 28 July, outside a property for sale in Stevenage Road, Fulham, which is about a mile and a half away. The hand brake was off and the car key was missing. Lamplugh's purse was found in a storage pocket in one of the car's side doors.

    Police suggested that a black, left-hand drive BMW vehicle may have been involved, because of an eyewitness account of a car of that description seen at the same location as Lamplugh's car in Stevenage Road. For some time after her disappearance, it was believed that "Kipper" was her pronunciation of the Dutch name "Kuiper", but police investigations failed to identify anyone of that name in connection with Lamplugh.

    New twist in Suzy Lamplugh cold case as ex-cop claims she never went to meet ‘Mr Kipper’ before she disappeared

    AN ex-cop has claimed missing estate agent Suzy Lamplugh never went to meet "Mr Kipper" before she disappeared in the latest twist of the unsolved murder case.

    The 25-year-old vanished in 1986 when she went to show a client of that name around a house in Fulham, West London - and has never been seen since.

    Now a former Scotland Yard detective is convinced Ms Lamplugh wasn't going to see a client at all - but faked the appointment to cover her tracks.

    David Videcette, now a freelance investigator, believes she instead left the office on her own to go on a personal errand during work time.

    He told the Daily Telegraph: "It was clear that the accepted narrative was that Suzy had met her fate after meeting Mr Kipper at Shorrolds Road.

    "Unfortunately, that version of events became the accepted narrative and anything that did not fit with it was discounted by the original investigating team."

    And he believes that the cornerstone of the investigation - the appointment with a "Mr Kipper" - never actually took place.

    "It is my firm view that Suzy put the Mr Kipper entry in her diary because she had to nip out to meet somebody else and she wasn't supposed to leave the office unattended.

    "I believe the answer to this mystery lies in another appointment that Suzy did keep, but that has never been explored."

    Ms Lamplugh was officially declared dead in 1994, and her parents died without ever finding out what happened to her.

    Mr Videcette is also convinced that a sighting of Ms Lamplugh with another man at the time of the appointment was not necessarily the same woman.

    There has been several cases of Female Real Estate agents missing or Murdered. I would never considered it as a dangerous Job. But it is perfect for a predator. Anonymity, Privacy.

    The ex-cop's claim that there in fact was no "Mr. Kipper" and that she used that fake appointment to run personal errands while on company time is not too far fetched. LE may have developed tunnel vision looking for a "Mr. Kipper" and ruled out other suspects before even looking at them. For some reason, the principle of tunnel vision brought the Lyons sisters to mind. They were last seen at a mall in the early '70s talking to a man with a microphone and a recorder if memory serves me right. The investigation focused solely on finding this man and did very little outside of this theory. It was decades later that they found the real culprit...a man that was interviewed and also, like many other witnesses, was only asked about the man with the microphone and recorder.
