Writing on the wall: The murder of Lauren Griffiths

At 6PM on April 30th 2019, a man called 999 and told the operator that he had killed his fiancé by mistake.


Madog Rowlands went on to tell the dispatcher that he had taken LSD and MDMA and he appeared to follow the operators' instructions on how to perform CPR on his fiancé.


When paramedics arrived at the address on Glynrhondda Street in Cathays, Cardiff, there was no immediate answer, so they tried the handle to gain entry and knocked again before Rowlands answered the door and let them in.


Rowlands stood to the side but didn’t say anything.


The paramedics described him as having a blank look on his face, he was on the phone and appeared nervous, confused and panicked.


The bedroom door was closed and the paramedics only managed to push it halfway open as a piece of cardboard had been wedged beneath the door. They found the victim naked on the floor, the lower half of her body was wrapped in clear plastic and it was apparent she was beyond saving.


Next to her were rolls of clingfilm, and a suitcase.

There was writing all over the bedroom wall. It said;

“I know that I have killed her, this will be my plan, I will keep her away from the outside, keep her in plastic, in 14 hours I’ll be joining you, I loved you to the moon and back x 3.”

And

“It’s all my fault, this was wrong.”
