The murderer of Eileen Lockhart, 5, crept up behind her, put his left hand over her nose and mouth to stop her screaming, and raped her. Then he strangled her with his right hand. That was on Sunday, Feb. 8, 1948. Four days later Eileen’s body was found in a bombed-out building in Finsbury, north London, three miles from her home in Wellington Way, Bow.
