A documentary examining the details of the Torso in the Thames case.

When the torso of a young boy was discovered in the River Thames in September 2001, it sparked one of the most challenging murder investigations ever mounted by the Metropolitan Police. With no head and no fingerprints, and no-one coming forward to claim the boy, the police have had precious little to go on. They decided to name the boy Adam and launched a hunt for clues that would take them across the globe - and turn to experts in forensics, cults and ritual murder. With evidence mounting of disturbing links to organised human trafficking of African children into the UK for slavery and worse, the police are anxious to find the breakthrough that will lead them to Adam's killer.
