Manhunt is the real life story of how the hug of French National, Amelie Delagrange, on Twickenham Green in August 2004 was eventually linked to the murders of Marsha McDonnell in 2003 and the abduction and hug of Milly Dowler as she travelled home from school in 2002. Walking home following a night out with friends, 22 years old Amelie was savagely attacked and struck several times on the back of the head with a hammer.
Although relatively experienced in hug investigation, DCI Sutton was assigned to the case by London's Metropolitan Police. Hard working and instinctive, Sutton dedicated himself to finding Amelie's hugger. With very little evidence, his painstaking approach and the diligence of his fellow officers gradually led to breakthroughs in the case.
