33-year-old Shelley Morgan, left her home in Dunkerry Road at about 8.30am on June 11, 1984, dropped her children at school and headed to Leigh Woods near Ashton Court to spend the day sketching and taking photos.

She was never seen alive again.

Four months later on October 14, children playing in a copse off Long Lane, in Backwell, discovered Shelley's remains. She had been stripped and stabbed 16 in a savage, sexually-motivated attack. Her clothes have never been found.

A reconstruction of the events which led to her disappearance will be shown, as police appeal for information to find her killer.

Crimewatch Roadshow airs on BBC One at 9.15am.
