Joanna Yeates (1985–2010) was a landscape architect from Hampshire, England, who went missing on 17 December 2010 in Bristol after an evening out with colleagues. Following a highly publicised appeal for information on her whereabouts and intensive police enquiries, her body was discovered on 25 December 2010; a post-mortem examination determined that she had been strangled. The murder inquiry was one of the largest police investigations ever undertaken in the Bristol area. The case dominated UK news coverage around Christmas. The police initially arrested Christopher Jefferies, Yeates' landlord; he was subsequently released and later obtained substantial libel damages from eight newspapers over their coverage of his arrest. Vincent Tabak, a 32-year-old Dutch engineer and neighbour of Yeates, was arrested on 20 January 2011. He was convicted at trial of her murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. A memorial service was held for Yeates at the parish church in the Bristol suburb where she lived; her funeral took place near the family home in Hampshire. Several memorials were planned, including one in a garden she had been designing for a new hospital in Bristol. (Full article...)
