Fingerprints identify 1990 UK M25 victim! New fingerprint technology has enabled police to identify a woman who was killed on the M25 in Hertfordshire, UK, 20 years ago. The victim’s name: Lesley Ann Pickavance.
Lesley Ann had been in contact with her family, who are from Bedford, but was not living with them during the summer of 1990. What she did, where she stayed and why, is still unknown. Investigations have revealed that Lesley Ann died after being hit by several vehicles as she tried to cross the M25 in July 1990.
Fingerprints from the body scanned by modern systems revealed a match. There had been no prior identification on the body and a later media appeal did not bring anyone forward.
