Taxi driver Christopher Halliwell has been handed a whole life sentence at Bristol Crown Court for murdering 20-year-old Becky Godden, who disappeared in 2003.
Halliwell is already serving a life term for killing Sian O’Callaghan in 2011.
The 52-year-old evaded justice for five years over Ms Godden’s death due to police breaching arrest guidelines.
Statement from D/Supt Sean Memory: “The sentence today is testament to the patience and humility that the family of Becky have shown, the dedication of the investigation team and shows the significant benefit of working closely with the CPS.
“The life sentence will not bring Becky back but ensures that Christopher Halliwell is removed effectively from society and will serve the punishment he rightly deserves.
“I appeal for anyone with any information regarding Halliwell, however insignificant it may seem to please come forward and speak to police in confidence.”
Statement from Elaine Pickford (Sian’s mum) on the sentencing: “The sentence handed down today by justice Sir John Griffiths Williams is the right, proper and deserved one.
“For myself, my family and Kevin there will never be closure without Sian, we will forever miss her, as will anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She lives in our hearts, thoughts and memories.
“Once again our thanks to Stephen Fulcher, Sean Memory, both prosecuting QC’s and their respective teams and the continued support of family and friends and people of Swindon.
“Lastly, I would appeal to Christopher Halliwell to ‘talk’ if there are other victims.”
