Rosemary and John Walkley have enlisted the help for the Strange Deaths Abroad department to investigate the death of their daughter, Virginia Owen. Mystery has shrouded the 48-year-olds death ever since she was found by her brother emaciated and starved in her apartment last October. After being taken to hospital, she died a few days later, leaving her parents pointing the blame at ex-boyfriend Hans Michelle Magnusson. But despite arrest by police, the Swedish national was released without charge earlier this year. Rosemary, aged 73, told the Mercury this week: Were never going to give up on finding out why she got into this condition. Weve got a special police team looking into it now, and were glad they are making progress. It is heartbreaking what happened, its ruined our lives but were desperate to get to the bottom of it.
