Never Ending Search for the London woman reported missing 32 years ago: Brainwave Science


Suzy Lamplugh, a 25-year-old Estate Agent from London disappeared 32 years ago, in the summer of 1986.  After 8 years Suzy was declared dead, presumed murdered, in 1994. The Met Police have focused on a house on Shipton Road. The owner of this house, 52-year-old, Philip Carrey has already seen two searches related to this investigation, in 2002 and 2003, by the Met Police. The prime suspect is, John Cannan a 64-year-old man, who is serving life for another murder. He used to live in this house with his mother 26 years ago. A fresh search and excavation of the garage and back-garden of the house has entered its second week. The police have clues and witnesses. Based on witnesses’ reports, the Police know details of the clothes Suzy wore, the client she was went out to meet, the e-fit of a person she had an argument before going missing. The Met heads the investigation with assistance of West Midlands force and private forensics. They are uncertain how long the search would continue.

The house-owner, Carrey says that although he has been inconvenienced by the searches, the police have been professional, and he hopes this investigation will end soon and bring closure to family and friends. He remarks that there is a 50/50 chance Suzy will be found in the premises of the house.


The crime took place more than three decades ago in the 1980s. However, the investigation has lingered on because of the nature of the case the body was not found which makes it almost impossible to find unless the murderer is willing to help the police. Also, such Cold case murder investigations are difficult to solve because of absence of witnesses who  may have forgotten crucial details or may have died.

Digging for dead bodies can be completed in a matter of days with the use of advanced technologies like ground penetrating radar to reveal depressions of cavities under the surface. Forensic Archaeologists help to collect evidence in a time consuming and delicate process.

Not all law enforcement agencies have access to technology to speed up the investigation. The Suspect hopes the search will end soon. It is considered that ‘Justice delayed is Justice denied’. Many suspects go through the trauma of investigation. According to a recent news report released in 2018, the commissioner of the Met Police has warned that it is becoming increasingly hard to solve murders. Commissioner Cressida Dick said detectives were operating in a “very challenging” environment and were met with a “wall of silence” in some cases.


Long-running cases cause the families and public to lose faith in law enforcement and judiciary. The denial of justice to the hapless victim is a violation of his or her right to peaceful life. Also, the suspects are troubled with interrogations and searches. The need is for a technology that is accurate, cost-effective, non-invasive and provides 100% guaranteed positive results within an hour. Brainwave Science offers an unrivaled technology that provides accurate and valuable information from the well-known foolproof source – human brain and it’s called iCognative. Many Agencies have used this technology to accurately reveal if a suspect is aware of crucial crime related information. It is applicable in over 85% of the cases.

The police will be greatly helped by any hint of Suzy’s body, and only one suspect is believed to possess information about Suzy’s disappearance. The police will be greatly benefited if  it can be proven that Cannan, possesses crucial crime related information. This is where iCognative comes in. iCognative can determine with over 99% accuracy if the suspect was involved in planning and executing the abduction and possibly the murder of Suzy. No other technology can provide accuracy and quick results like iCognative can.

iCognative can transform the way investigations are conducted. By delivering accurate and timely information, the Enforcers can avoid false imprisonments, and help in exoneration of innocents. iCognative analyses the brainwaves and determines if suspect is aware of information that only the perpetrator or witness of a crime may know. It does this with remarkable accuracy. The subjective opinions of the test administrator do not affect the outcome. Usually a 40-minute-long test, all person/s of interest, suspects and witnesses are exposed to references of evidence gathered by law enforcement including facts such as: names, locations, details of what victim’s clothes, etc., along with details that are not in public domain and remain case confidential (altogether called Stimuli).  When such stimuli is shown to the testee, it is revealed whether the information is stored in the brain or not. There are no false positives or false negatives. Moreover, it has no countermeasures and is admissible in US courts. Brainwave Science‘s iCognative is the solution which can help the Met Police and all Law enforcement agencies to confidently zero in on the perpetrator and speed up the delivery of justice.
