In her office diary she recorded details of a lunchtime appointment with 'Mr Kipper' at a property in Shorrolds Road.

Mr Videcette believes the police focus on Mr Kipper caused them to miss vital evidence.

'Abducted' wife of billionaire 'may have been killed'

'Abducted' wife of billionaire 'may have been killed' The wife of a Norwegian billionaire who vanished eight months ago in a suspected abduction could have been killed - and her kidnapping may have been faked to hide it, police have said. Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen has been missing since 31 October.

Disappearance of Suzy Lamplugh . Read in another language. Watch this page. Edit. Susannah (‘ Suzy ’) Jane Lamplugh (/ˈlæmpluː/; born 3 May 1961 in Cheltenham) was a British estate agent reported missing on 28 July 1986 (aged 25) in Fulham, southwest London, England.

Estate agent Suzy Lamplugh vanished 32 years ago and her body has never been found. Estate agent Suzy was abducted after meeting a client in Fulham, West London, in 1986. Police dig for the remains of estate agent Suzy Lamplugh at the former home of prime suspect John Cannan's mother.

One of the main reasons police were convinced Miss Lamplugh had met with Mr Kipper was that a witness living in Shorrolds Road claimed to have seen a man and woman standing outside around the time of the appointment.

Harry Riglin, who has since died, gave detectives a detailed description of the man that led to a photofit being produced and circulated.

Mr Videcette says he has tracked down Mr Riglin's nephew who said his uncle had never really been clear that the woman was Miss Lamplugh.

Another key piece of evidence he claims was overlooked at the time includes the existence of the keys to the Shorrolds Road property.

Mr Videcette claims the estate agency had one set of keys to the property and these were recovered from the office by the police.

He added to the Telegraph: 'I imagine police at the time just assumed there was a second set of keys that Suzy had with her, which were never found.

'But I tracked down several employees and the original owner of the agency, all of whom said if there had been a second set of keys they would have been on the same key ring.

'Suzy didn't have the keys with her as she never intended on conducting the viewing at Shorrolds Road.'

Mr Videcette is due to meet Scotland Yard detectives today to present his evidence and is confident the killer could soon be caught.
