HELICOPTERS CIRCLE OVERHEAD CAMERA APERTURE CLICKS The girl would have seen everything from here.
Well, she's in the best place now.
Safe.
That's something, at least.
Ma'am? I know you're probably thinking I should have listened to you, but we had nothing to go on.
I told you there was something off about him.
He cooperated.
All that time we were in that house with him, asking those stupid, bloody questions You should have listened to me.
Have you spoken to anyone about this? Only DI John.
We've set up an inner and outer cordon and released Dylan Harris's name to the press.
We've got uniform going house-to-house, warning residents to be alert and vigilant.
What about Iona Harris? Refusing to speak.
That's hardly surprising.
Look, why don't you head back to base? See if you can get anything out of her.
Who knows, she may even tell us where her son is.
Oh, boss.
Is it true about Alun Pryce? He was arrested and charged last night.
Oh, shit Miss Reed.
How are you feeling? I tried talking to the doctor, but she wouldn't tell me anything.
I want to help.
Whatever that man did to you He didn't rape me, if that's what you want to know.
Megan, please, I just want you to know you can talk to me.
No, I can't.
I never could.
I've never been good enough for you, Mum.
Megan, that's not true.
Yes, it is, and you know it is.
I can hear it in your voice.
You made me hate meself.
Hate who I am.
The night this happened, I was trying to come home.
But I couldn't do it, I couldn't get on the train because I didn't want to see that look of disappointment on your face again.
So I just left.
I left the train station and I walked and I walked, and when I saw the headlights of his truck, I just I just stepped out into the road.
I just wanted it all to stop.
Sorry.
Oh, that's OK.
I'll give you a minute.
Bloody hell, Meg.
Am I glad to see you.
HELICOPTERS CIRCLE OVERHEAD Please, phone an ambulance This is all the information we could find on both Iona and Dylan Harris.
There's not a huge amount to go on, I'm afraid.
Obviously wanted to keep it under the radar.
What about Nia? Nothing.
The girl's not registered at any of the local schools, at any of the GP surgeries in the area.
We have no birth certificate, no medical records.
Nothing to suggest she even exists.
OK.
Thanks, Alys.
PHONE RINGS Hi, Dad, what's up? It's all over the news, Cad.
Is it him, have you got him? We're still looking.
But it's him, right? It-It is him? Dad, please.
You know I can't talk to you about this, and not over the phone.
You've got to tell me something.
Please, Cad.
Is this the man responsible for the murder of Anna Williams? Yes.
Dad, are you OK? Dad? Find him, Cad.
He has to be held to account for all the suffering and misery he's caused.
We will, I promise.
Now, look, I really have to go, so, um, I'll talk to you when I get home tonight, OK? Cad, be careful.
You know me, always.
Mrs Harris.
The time is 9:25am on Tuesday the 24th of October.
Present in the room, Detective Inspector Cadi John.
For the record, could you please state your name in full? The accused has refused to give her name.
I will therefore commence with the interview of Iona Harris.
Mrs Harris has refused legal representation and the custody record has been endorsed to this effect.
Iona Harris, you have been arrested on suspicion of abduction and false imprisonment of Mali Pryce, Llinos Evans and Megan Ruddock.
What can you tell me about this girl? Mali Pryce.
Mali went missing in 2011 when she was 17 years old.
We found her body last week in the river at Pantwern.
She was thin pale.
She had sores on her wrists and her ankles from being repeatedly tied up.
Restrained.
Shackled.
We found personal effects belonging to Mali in your son's bedroom.
How do you account for that, Mrs Harris? OK, well, we'll come back to that one in a minute.
This is from our medical examiner.
Makes for grim reading.
Malnutrition.
Vitamin deficiencies.
There's a long list of historical injuries.
And internal scarring consistent with a late-stage forced termination.
A forced abortion.
Wow.
Someone's been busy.
Was this your handiwork? Did you act alone, or did you just hold that girl down while your son, Dylan, ripped that child from her womb? What kind of a woman are you? How could you do that? Because if there's anything that you want to say that could help me understand this, please, I'm Well, I'm all ears.
No? Nothing? Llinos Evans.
Llinos was 15 when she went missing in 2007.
What can you tell me about her disappearance, Mrs Harris? Or should I tell you what I think happened, then? I think that your son, Dylan, abducted this girl, Mrs Harris.
I think that he brought her back to your house, to your home, where he dragged her, kicking and screaming, to that basement room of his, where she was abused and raped, until she became pregnant with his child.
A little girl named Nia.
Nia's what nine? Almost ten years old? 2007, 2017 - what is that? Six, seven, eight, nine ten years.
It's a coincidence, isn't it? Where is Llinos Evans, Mrs Harris? As we speak, we have forensic officers combing through every corner of your house, are going into every room, opening every drawer, and if there is any trace of Llinos Evans in that house, anywhere, we will find it.
Look all you want.
You won't find anything.
Anna Williams.
God, she looks remarkably similar to these other girls, don't you think? Anna disappeared in November, 2005.
She was 17, too.
Two days later, her body was found buried in a shallow grave in the woods at Penrhyn.
Her uncle, Endaf Elwy, was arrested and charged with her murder, and he has spent the last 12 years locked in a prison cell protesting his innocence.
The guilty ones They always shout the loudest.
Well, here's the thing.
I found a book An old school book, belonging to Anna Williams, in that basement on your property.
So, please, Mrs Harris enlighten me.
How did that book, belonging to that girl, end up in that room? You done? CAR PULLS UP IN DISTANCE KNOCKS KNOCKS AGAIN PHONE VIBRATES CAR ENGINE STARTS Sorry.
It's It's fine.
Mum not with you? Oh, she went back to the hotel to get some sleep.
Have you found him? No, not yet.
But we will.
You're safe here, I promise.
I do this to myself.
I get this feeling, inside.
This awful creeping feeling.
Just dread panic.
And it grows and grows, and it overwhelms me until, like, all I want to do is scream.
This is the only way I can get rid of it.
That feeling.
But when I was in that room this, you know This all disappeared.
All I wanted to do was get out, get free.
I wanted to live.
But what am I supposed to do now? How am I supposed to live? Because what happened to me, what happened in that room that's never going to go away.
Sorry.
My mother died when I was young.
I was in the car with her when it crashed.
I remember looking over at her and stretching my hand out for her to hold.
And it was like the sun going behind a cloud.
There was no shouting, no noise, just She just left me.
Quietly.
When terrible things happen, you think that the world will stop, that everything and everyone will just hold its breath, but it didn't.
Life just kept plodding along.
But my life and your life will never be the same again and it never gets any better and it doesn't go away.
That numb feeling So you've got to live.
"You live your life.
" That's what my dad always said to me.
Cos that is your reward for surviving this.
You should get some rest.
Uh, wait.
Can I ask you a favour? Hello! I just wanted to thank you for what you did.
Uh you're a very brave girl.
I wanted you to know that and I'm very grateful for what you did for me.
Do you want to read it with me? Of course.
I'm Nia.
Megan.
LABOURED BREATHING PHONE VIBRATES PHONE RINGS At 11:53 this morning, the remains of a young woman were found buried in the forest to the rear of your property.
Is there anything you wish to tell us about that, Mrs Harris? Mrs Harris? Now is your chance to speak.
You know, Mrs Harris, once we've run a DNA profile I'm willing to bet we'll get a positive match with this girl Llinos Evans.
Why did you do it? Why did you kill her and bury her in the woods like she was some animal to be disposed of? Cos that's what you did.
You and your son, Dylan.
You took that poor girl's life away from her.
Look at that girl, Mrs Harris.
I said, look at her.
Mrs Harris I didn't kill her.
She just died.
How? Giving birth.
It happened very quickly.
There was nothing I could do about it.
I was listening for her breathing There was nothing.
I knew straightaway she was dead.
I told him to be very careful and warned him not to get them pregnant but he didn't listen.
He never listened.
He couldn't stop himself.
And then when this one got pregnant, I told him to get rid of it.
But he didn't.
He wanted to have a child of his own.
Nia.
Does Nia know what happened to her mother? What does it matter now? And what happened when Mali Pryce became pregnant? I warned Dylan over and over again to sort it out.
We couldn't have another child in that house.
But he didn't do anything about it.
It was too late.
But I sorted it in the end.
And cleaned up his mess.
She lost a lot of blood, but she lived.
My son is sick.
And I take care of him.
That's what mothers do.
The pain you've caused The lives you've ruined How do you live with something like that? A day at a time.
Help us find your son, Mrs Harris.
For Dylan's sake Tell us where he is.
How should I know where he is? And even if I did know why would I tell you? Iona Harris has just confessed.
Abduction, false imprisonment, the lot, everything.
With Megan Ruddock's testimony and the evidence we're getting from Soco I think we've got enough to bring charges and present to the CPS.
What about Dylan Harris? Did she give us any indication as to where her son might be? Sorry to interrupt.
I've just taken a call from a member of the public, Sally Heston.
She and her husband Matthew live in a neighbouring property close to Dylan and Iona Harris.
Now, the thing is, Matthew Heston works from home, so he's usually there when his wife calls.
She's been trying to contact him all day.
He's not answering.
- We'll check it out.
- Right.
Matthew Heston drives a green Land Rover Discovery, license plate Sierra, November, five, three, Tango, Kilo, Oscar.
OK, inform all units to be on the lookout for the vehicle.
That was him.
Router 30, requesting immediate authorisation for pursuit.
The vehicle is a green Land Rover Discovery, license number Sierra, November, five HORN BLARES Shit! The suspect's vehicle has left the road.
Request immediate ambulance back-up.
Vaughan.
DI John is approaching Harris.
Backup has arrived.
It's over! We've spoken to your mother.
Dylan, please.
She told us everything.
DI JOHN'S VOICE FADES AWAY Time to do the right thing Step away from the edge, Dylan.
Dylan? You could fall Dylan.
No! No! Oh! Mrs Harris, I'm sorry to have to inform you that your son, Dylan, died this evening.
He took his own life.
Ma'am? Sorry to, uh I just wanted to know how Megan Ruddock was doing.
Is she OK? She'll get there.
And the little girl? She's in safe hands.
I just keep wondering what would have happened if I'd said something sooner.
We found Megan when we did because of you.
Don't ever forget that.
Thank you.
No joy with Lowri Driscoll.
I've left her a message asking her to call us back as soon as.
He won, didn't he? God, I really wanted to get him.
We did everything we could.
Did we? You look bloody awful.
Really? I mean, it's not as if we've been too busy to eat or sleep or anything.
I've told you before, who needs sleep when you've got caffeine? Go home.
Eat, sleep, do whatever it is normal people do at the end of a long day.
I'll be late in tomorrow, if that's OK? I'm with Sam.
Uh, baby scan.
Yeah, that's fine.
Good luck.
I'll see you when I see you.
Goodnight.
Don't you have a home to go to? Ach, what can I say? I can't get enough of this place.
I thought you should know, Alun Pryce has been informed.
OK.
He's being transferred to Liverpool in the morning.
I know this doesn't feel like a victory but it is.
We did some good here.
I thought you'd be out here.
I heard it on the news.
All those lives ruined because of him.
And then he goes and takes the easy way out for himself.
Bloody coward.
I should have stopped him sooner.
In fact, I could have done more.
You did your best.
We both did.
So, what happens now? Oh, I'm too tired to think about that.
Let's just see what tomorrow brings, hmm? Oh, that's something I know all about.
Are you OK, Dad? I'm going to miss this.
These moments.
I want you to do something for me, Cad.
When this is over, move on.
Don't waste this time you've got.
Please, I I couldn't bear it.
I'm going in.
You look tired.
- Try and get some sleep.
- Yeah.
