On October 30th 1998, twenty-two year-old Jenny King left Chasers Nightclub in Bristol with a fiver that her brother had given her to get a taxi home. The following day, Jenny’s loved ones would realise she never made the mile to her family home in Warmley. Over the coming weeks, the residents of Bristol would question the shocking similarities between Jenny’s disappearance and that of Melanie Hall from nearby Bath just two years earlier.
