When 45-year-old Lorna Smith accepted a stranger’s friend request online, she had no idea of the tragic consequences that lay ahead.
After ending her four year relationship with Clifford Mills in 2006, Lorna began seeing other men, much to the dismay of her ex-partner. Mills subsequently set up a fake Facebook profile to bombard Lorna with phone calls and messages, before stabbing her to death in a jealous act of violence.
In a case that led to new stalking laws being introduced in the UK, the episode delves into Mills’ psychological state after claiming his alter ego, ‘Stan’, killed Lorna, as well as revealing the chilling way he plotted the murder of his ex-partner on internet forums.
Pauline, Hamza, Verity, Margit, Ethan, Emily, Stephanie and Graham from Lemon also appeared in the series.
