Levi Bellfield confesses to Elizabeth Chau's murder after being quizzed for 6 hours over 1999 disappearance of student | The Sun

LEVI Bellfield has confessed to murdering a student who vanished 24 years ago after being grilled by cops in prison.

Met detectives travelled to HMP Frankland where they questioned the serial killer under caution for six hours.

It came after Bellfield made a prison confession to killing Elizabeth Chau, 19, who vanished in April 1999 in Ealing, West London.

The Met told The Sun Online: "On Tuesday 9 May 2023, a 54-year-old male was interviewed under caution. Inquiries continue.

"We can confirm we remain in contact with Elizabeth Chau’s family.

"At this time we will not be providing an ongoing commentary. We have no comment to make.”

The Sun revealed this week how the monster drew a map for officers where he claims Elizabeth's body is buried.

Bellfield is serving life in jail after murdering Marsha McDonnell, 19, and 22-year-old Amélie Delagrange, as well as attempting to murder Kate Sheedy.

He was also convicted of murdering 13-year-old schoolgirl Milly Dowler.

Two detectives went to the high-security prison accompanied by Bellfield’s solicitor Theresa Clark, who has handed his signed statement to police.

The serial killer then repeated the confession to the officers.

A source said: "Bellfield was interviewed under caution in the presence of a solicitor.

“He co-operated with police and repeated his confession that he abducted and killed her.

“He has also given detectives of where he says Elizabeth’s body is buried, which is close to a sports ground in west London.

“Detectives are now analysing whether they should carry out a search for the body and if they have enough to charge him.

“They have taken it very seriously and appeared to believe what he was telling them.

“The case is unsolved and Elizabeth disappeared in an area close to where Bellfield carried out other known attacks.

“It clearly fits his profile, which is why they are taking it seriously.”

The Sun told how Bellfield's statement contains admissions he carried out the attack with an associate and details how he bundled Elizabeth into a van.

Thames University student Elizabeth vanished a mile from her home after handing in a paper.

At the time, Bellfield would have been aged 31 and working as a nightclub bouncer.

The confession is the latest in a string of admissions from the killer after he recently admitted the murder of Judith Gold in Hampstead, North London, in 1990.

The Criminal Cases Review Commission, which can order re-trials, is also examining his confession to the murders of mum and daughter Lin and Meghan Russell in Chillenden, Kent in 1996.
