According to Melanie’s father, Steve, she was a “young, vibrant daughter.” In 2009 he told the BBC that the hospital clerical worker from Bradford-on-Avon, England, had a “future in front of her.” And yet Steve never got to see what his child would make of her life:  these hopes vanished along with Melanie on June 9, 1996.
