  • Alibi: Went for a walk by herself
  • Possible motive: Had fallen out with Lucy over Lee/was being cyber bullied by Lucy

However, their feud reached a new height on Good Friday when Whitney found out that Lucy had slept with Lee Carter - who Whitney had also taken a liking to. Later deleteing information from her and Lucy’s social media pages, is she trying to cover something up?

“Do you know what – I’ve got a horrible feeling it’s Whitney. I didn’t a while ago but now I think it could be. If it’s not Whitney, I would have said Ian, but I’m not sure. It’s crazy we still don’t know. Everyone thinks we do, but we don’t!”
