Description
The case of Billy McPhee, found murdered in Crawley. A police pathologist at a press conference(?) describes the injuries sustained by the young man; an IRN news bulletin (read by Jon Snow) reports his death and describes his distinguishing features; the post mortem reveals a clue in the dead man’s stomach: a phone number written on a piece of paper. We also hear an interview with a Sussex Police spokesman, and part of a conversation (or re-enactment of a conversation) between officers in Crawley and Stirling. All or part of clip may be from Johnny Go Home, a Yorkshire TV programme investigating the dangers facing young people who leave home for London.
