THE killer of teenage schoolgirl Vicky Hall is still on the loose today.

Police were resuming their investigation into the death of the sixth former from Trimley St Mary after Felixstowe businessman Adrian Bradshaw was acquitted of her murder.

But as Mr Bradshaw was enjoying his first full day of freedom after nearly a year behind bars, he found himself at the centre of fresh controversy after a former girlfriend Helen Prior alleged that he had been violent towards her during their three-year relationship.

Suffolk police today said if Miss Prior makes a formal complaint to them they will investigate the allegation.

Meanwhile detectives are assessing their next move and are due to meet 17-year-old Vicky's parents Graham and Lorinda Hall, of Faulkeners Way, Trimley, later this week to talk to them about the case.

Det Supt Roy Lambert said: "I am very, very disappointed with the verdict. Our job has been to obtain as much evidence as we possibly can and place it before the court. I believe in this case we have done that. I believe I know who murdered Vicky Hall."

But Mr Bradshaw accused the police of putting on a "show trial".

He added: "The police have spent £1m on this inquiry and it took a jury of 12 normal people to acquit me in just over an hour, so I think that speaks for itself as regards the police.

"Yes, people will still wonder did he do it, didn't he do it, but the trial has been extensively covered and the jury found me not guilty. You have got to get on with your life and put it behind you because there is no point in being bitter afterwards."
