Italy link to hair-in-hand murder


An Italian man has been found guilty of murdering a mother-of-two who was found with a clump of someone's hair in her hand at her Bournemouth home in 2002.

Danilo Restivo, 39, had denied killing Heather Barnett, 48, whose mutilated body was found by her children.

During the trial, Restivo was also linked to the murder of Elisa Claps, 16, who went missing in Italy in 1993.

The BBC's Damon Embling travelled to Potenza, Italy, where Restivo met Miss Claps on the day she vanished.
