An investigation into a murder in Milton Keynes will be broadcast as part of a television documentary.
Catching a Killer: A Knock at the Door will be broadcast at 9pm on Channel 4 on Monday (14/5), and goes behind the scenes to focus on the work of investigating officers.
The victim was Hang Yin Leung, who died in hospital on February 11th 2017. She had been assaulted during a burglary at her home in Orne Gardens, Milton Keynes, on January 31st 2017, and was taken ill while providing a police statement.
The film was made by the award-winning documentary makers True Vision, and was made with the support of Hang’s family, also shows her relatives coming to terms with the impact of her murder.
During the film, the officers work to appeal for information, to follow up lines of enquiry and make arrests as they attempt to bring those responsible to justice.
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Andy Shearwood, said, “The film captures the effect such a serious crime like this had on Hang’s family, and on the wider community, and shows the lack of humanity of those who committed this offence.
“Thames Valley Police will always investigate to establish the truth and will make every effort to bring those responsible to justice. As senior investigating officer I am ultimately responsible for this investigation. I hope the documentary helps to give the communities we serve a greater understanding of our work, shows the public how seriously we take such offences and the support there is for families during the most devastating times.”
