Disclosure: Who Killed Emma?

The documentary reveals how a police investigation wrongly charged four men with the murder of sex worker Emma Caldwell in 2005. Her murder is unsolved. Journalist Samantha Poling discovers evidence pointing to another suspect, Iain Packer. Poling confronts Packer with allegations he was sexually violent with women in the same woods where Emma’s body was found, and evidence he had taken Emma there. The day after transmission, Iain Packer was charged with an attack on a woman. Other women reported rape allegations against him. And police have told programme-makers a charge is imminent in their investigation into who killed Emma.
