Laurence Winstanley

Jan 05, 10:14 AM
On the 2nd October 1988,  23 year old Laurence Winstanley had been working at his garage in Oldham, Greater Manchester. During his lunch break he popped into the local pub. While he was there he received a phone call which his friends say made him agitated. He returned to the pub that evening but this would be the last time anyone would see him alive. That night he disappeared. A year later Laurence's body was found in Baitings Reservoir. The investigation into Laurence's murder caused many to wonder why he had been targeted and by whom.

In loving memory of Laurence Winstanley.
