ESTATE agent Suzy Lamplugh disappeared over three decades ago and investigators are yet to find out what happened to her.
The bright 25-year-old disappeared after going on a house tour in 1986.
What happened to Suzy Lamplugh?
Suzy had an appointment to show a man who she thought was called Mr Kipper a property on Shorrolds Road in Fulham.
But after leaving the office, she did not return and was never seen again.
Over the decades, police have followed up a number of leads linked to the disappearance, but have continued to pull loopholes.
When did Suzy disappear and was anyone ever charged with her murder?
July 28, 1986
Suzy Lamplugh arranges a meeting with Mr Kipper in Fulham and is subsequently declared missing.
Police begin their investigation and find their white Ford Fiesta parked outside a property for sale on Stevenage Road, a mile and a half from their Shorrolds Road appointment.
Searches of the vehicle show her ignition key is missing, but her purse was left behind.
The Metropolitan Police are conducting DNA tests on 800 unidentified bodies in a bid to identify Suzy.
Convicted murderer John Cannan is questioned about the disappearance.
With the investigation yielding no credible leads, Suzy Lamplugh is officially declared dead.
After police track down a car that may have been linked to the disappearance, the case is reopened.
In December, John Cannan is arrested and interrogated for murder but not charged.
A police search is being conducted in the area around Norton Army Barracks but no new evidence is found.
The police publicly announce that they suspect Cannan of the crime.
There is a chilling revelation that Cannan is known in prison as Kipper, the same name as the person suspected of seeing Suzy just before she disappeared.
It is believed he also had access to a dark BMW that has been linked to the crime.
Cannan denies all allegations.
After the murder of five prostitutes, police are reviewing the prosecutor’s files of vile Suffolk strangler Steve Wright.
Although Wright knew Suzy in the 1980s when they both worked on QE2, no other evidence connected the serial killer to the crime.
Police are trying to find further evidence by digging up a field next to the village of Drakes Broughton in Worcestershire, but the case continues to run dry.
Police searching for Ms Lamplugh’s Suzy’s body will begin digging up a garden on October 29 in hopes of solving the 32-year-old mystery, The Sun exclusively reveals.
The property in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, is the former home of prime suspect John Cannan’s mother.
His mother is believed to live in another part of the country and there is no indication that she was involved in or had any knowledge of this or any of his crimes.
A forensic archaeologist directed police during the ground-penetrating radar search, but tragically, it turned up no evidence at the property.
The prime suspect in the kidnapping and murder of real estate agent Suzy Lamplugh suffers a stroke in prison.
John Cannan’s ailing condition comes as police search for Suzy’s remains at the edge of a field near Pershore, Worcestershire.
In response to a lead, cops investigating the murder dig up land next to an old lead that “could have hidden anything”.
New evidence Suzy’s alleged killer was spotted 34 years ago hurling a large suitcase down a canal offers new hope for finding her.
The sighting was made by a lorry driver walking to work at 5am on a towpath alongside the canal in Brentford, west London.
There he came “face to face” with Cannan, who was pushing a large holdall on a trolley.
Seconds later, he heard a splash and turned to supposedly see Cannan run off.
The lorry driver reported this to Brentford Police, the first of THREE occasions on which he is said to have attempted to alert officers.
Police say they still hope to unravel the mystery of Suzy Lamplugh’s disappearance 35 years after her disappearance.
They insist the investigation is still active after a new Sky Crime documentary, The Mystery of Suzy Lamplugh, re-examined the case.
Det Ch Insp. Rebecca Reeves, the Met Police’s chief investigating officer, said: “We would urge anyone who thinks they know anything about what happened to Suzy all those years ago to come forward and come forward.” saw something that you thought had nothing to do with time or felt pressure to protect someone you knew – it’s not too late.
“The passage of time has not weakened our resolve to seek justice and get the answers the Lamplugh family continues to await.
“They have always supported our efforts to make progress in the investigation and have shown remarkable strength despite the immense sadness they have endured over the years.”

Channel 5 programming includes testimonies from detectives involved in the original investigation and the subsequent re-investigation.
Her brother Richard also appears and relates how her parents, Paul and Diana, had been walking the streets looking for her, calling her name.
What is the Suzy Lamplugh Trust?
The Suzy Lamplugh Trust was founded by the estate agent’s parents, Paul and Diana Lamplugh.
The Trust played a key role in passing the Harassment Protection Act, which cracked down on stalking-related crimes.
According to its website, the charity’s mission is to “reduce the risk of violence and aggression through campaigning, education and support.”
Speaking on the 30th anniversary of his daughter’s tragic disappearance, Suzy’s then 85-year-old father, Paul Lamplugh, said: “I don’t have very high hopes of finding out what happened. I miss Suzy more now… I guess the older I get I miss her.
“I remember one conversation in particular when Diana scolded her for doing too much and she said, ‘Come on mom, life is for living.’
“Suzy knew how to live life to the fullest, but nobody taught her how to be safe.” Both of Suzy’s parents died without ever knowing what happened to their daughter.
Diana passed away in August 2011 and Paul died on June 12, 2018.
