The serial sex attacker lived
in London for four years in the
1990s A senior detective said:
"It is difficult to believe that a
man who has been a prolific sex
offender all over Europe, over
many years, did not commit
crimes while in London."
Police in Caroline's home
county of Cornwall, will ask
every police force in Britain to
re-examine their files on outstanding sex attacks and attempted abductions.
Police in Wales are particularly keen to quiz the Spanish
drifter over a string of unsolved
attacks at a holiday spot near
a town where he worked.
Before the jury in Rennes.
France, retired yesterday,
Monies was asked if he had
anything to say.
"I have nothing to say," he
said. "I am ashamed."
The Spaniard admitted in
court last week that he had
sexually assaulted Caroline,
but denied intending to kill her
as he blocked her mouth to
stop her screaming.
Caroline's mother Sue broke
down in tears as Judge
Fabienne Doroy read out the
Jury's verdict of "guilty of murder preceded by, accompanied
by, or following, rape".
Monies showed no emotion
as she told him he must serve
at least 20 years before he can
apply for parole.

each, with $44,000 to their
daughter Jenny. The money

following four hours of deliberation, Caroline's father smiled
and puffed out his cheeks with
relief as he shook the hands of
British and French police.
He said outside the court:
"The events of the last week
have been for us a necessary
but draining experience, as of
course has the pursuit of justice
for Caroline over the last eight
years. We will now start the
process of rebuilding our lives."
Detectives in Britain will now
request a copy of Montes's file
from the court so that they can
cross-reference the exact dates
he was in Britain with unsolved
crimes, enabling them to build
a picture of his movements.

Father's determined Fight Allows Justice To Prevail
THE verdict was a vindication of
John Dickinson's dogged fight for
justice for his daughter.
Mr Dickinson played no small part
in the eventual outcome of the case.
He made more than 20 trips to
France over the past eight years to
keep up the pressure on police.
Monies became a suspect in October, 1897, when an investigating
French judge noticed similarities between the murder and four
attempted abductions at a hostel in
Blere in the Loire Valley in 1993-4.
Monies had been arrested and police
had a file on him.
At the time Montes was identified
as a suspect, he was in Spain awaiting trial for an attempted rape. Due
to a breakdown in communication
with the Spanish. French police were
not told of his whereabouts and he
fled to South America.
In April, 2001, US immigration official Tommy Ontko read a report in
a British newspaper about the case
"GUILTY: Francisco Arce Monies
