Body in the Bag: The Murder of Melanie Hall - Channel 5

One of Britain’s most shocking unsolved mysteries, the story of the disappearance and murder of Melanie Hall.

On the night of 8th June 1996, 25-year-old Melanie was enjoying an evening out with her friends in a local nightclub in Bath. But their night of harmless fun quickly turned into tragedy. Melanie was last seen sitting on a bar stool at the edge of the dance floor at 1.10am - she was never heard from nor seen again. It would be another 13 years before her remains were discovered, in the most unlikely of places; the slip road of a busy motorway. And in October 2019, police revealed they had new evidence when they obtained a partial DNA profile.

Yet still, her killer remains at large.

Through interviews with her family and the police leading the investigation, archive and reconstruction, this documentary will re-examine the case and explore the various theories surrounding her death.

If you have any information regarding the murder of Melanie Hall, please call 101 and ask for Avon and Somerset Police and say you have information relating to Operation Denmark.
