About The Event
Shafilea Ahmed was a 17 year old girl who was reported missing by a teacher after a week's absence from school in September 2003. Her parents claimed that she had run away from home and publicaly sought assistance to find her on TV and elsewhere. Shafilea's body was found in the River Kent in Cumbria six months later and it took seven years before there was a break in the case. Detective Superintendent Geraint Jones led the investigation of the case and will provide an overview of the events which led to a successful prosecution.
