Episode 3 Recap
Episode 3 of 24 Hours in Police Custody Season 9 was part one of the two-parter report. The first part delved into the case of a sexual predator who preyed on young people in Luton. This case eventually turned into Bedfordshire Police’s largest ever operation into historic abuse. The episode began with the work of a detective working in the Child Sexual Exploitation Unit. The story gets into motion when the detective makes a discovery regarding a man with a history of sexual offenses. This starts with a victim’s testimony, who’s in prison.
The testimony eventually triggers the Bedfordshire Police’s largest-ever investigation. Many other victims come forward and the harrowing history of sexual abuse unravels. The sexual offender, who has been arrested eight times in the past for sexual offenses, has never been convicted. The first part of the two-part special delves into the several victim testimonies. We see how most of the victims having criminal records themselves hampers their testimonies.
24 Hours in Police Custody Season 9 Episode 4 Preview & Spoilers
Episode 4 of 24 Hours in Police Custody Season 9 will continue to follow the largest ever investigation into historic abuse. ‘The Horror House – Part Two’ follows DS Rachael Foy. She has spent three years working to persuade victims to testify against the suspect. However, Rachael knows that the system is too often not on the side of the victims. And that’s the case with the victims who are even brave enough to come forward. What makes this case particularly difficult is that many of the victims are already dead. Additionally, several victims hail from the streets. Their testimonies, as Foy fears, do not carry as much believability in courts as others’ do — Rachael Foy’s biggest concern.
