"When a military helicopter crashed, Nikki and Harry were first on the scene. Harry was unable to save the dying pilot, and was shocked when the Ministry of Defence arrived and excluded him from the site. Worried that they might be concealing information, he climbed back onto the wrecked helicopter, and took photos \u2013 only to be arrested. When Leo arrived, he demanded Harry\u2019s release, but Harry\u2019s suspicions were realised when a government minister blamed the crash on the pilot, before a full investigation had taken place."
2007-08-29
"Harry was approached by the dead pilot\u2019s father, Henry Markham, who was convinced that the helicopter was faulty, but that his son would take the blame. Political pressure saw the RAF washing their hands of the body. But when Harry carried out the post mortem, he discovered that far from being the hero he thought he was defending, the pilot had been taking drugs to help tackle his insomnia following his experiences in Iraq. Harry had to tell the pilot\u2019s father that as a result of his post mortem, his son would almost certainly be blamed for the crash. Later, a body was brought into the mortuary. The coroner suspected it was a case of pilot suicide. Harry opened the body bag: it was Henry Markham."
2007-09-03
"When the mutilated body of a young black boy was pulled out of the River Lea, Leo found himself becoming obsessed with his mission to track down the boy\u2019s identity. In order to do so he first had to piece together the story behind the boy\u2019s death. Was this Muti, Kindoki or the cold blooded work of a paedophile? The police were no closer to finding out what happened when a second body was pulled from the river, so Leo decided to make his own enquiries. This lead him to a West African church nearby. There, Leo saw an exorcism of a young boy who was Kindoki \u2013 possessed. The Pastor, Funmi Lambo, insisted there was no violence in his church, and that far worse would happen to the boy if he were taken to Africa for exorcism. But on leaving work that night, Leo found a chilling message left for him on his car, a warning to stay away."
2007-09-04
"The police investigation came under added pressure when a teenager was reported missing. When a raid on a witch doctor\u2019s house turned up nothing, the community was up in arms at what they saw as harassment. In the end, Leo found that, unknown to Pastor Lambo, the boys were killed by the church caretakers, who sold their organs for use as Muti charms. But he realised that it was Dr Falase, a surgeon and prominent community spokesperson, who brought them into the country for use in her clinic as kidney donors. She had then left the boys in the care of the caretakers, who knew they wouldn\u2019t be missed."
2007-09-10

When the child died, Claire\u2019s boyfriend had tried to blackmail Alice\u2019s father, but he killed him to protect his daughter\u2019s reputation. Harry told Alice, and they raced to confront her father, but trying to protect her still, he shot himself."

Then, on her release from prison, she herself was murdered.\n\nEmilia Fox\n\nNikki\u2019s case was brought into the limelight again, but the only witness to the murder, Anna\u2019s police protection officer Carla Masters, was in a coma recovering from horrific burns.
