Between 1978 and 1981 seven children were abducted and brutally murdered in a crime that shocked the nation. Susan Lowley & Ian Roberts were convicted and sentenced for life at Dorset Crown court for the murderes dubbed 'The Dorset Drownings'. The initial trial predated forensic testing and there were many unanswered questions. For their part in these heinous crimes, Susan now dead, her husband Ian will never be released. In 2020 Carl Braith was stopped by police in a routine stop during the COVID lockdown. His DNA threw a positive match to DNA on clothing recovered and later forensically tested in this historic case. Carl Braith now stands accused of accessory to Murder in the Dorset Drownings.
