Has Grace Millane’s body been found? Netflix documentary on social media murders

In November 2018, Grace Millane, a graduate student from the University of Lincoln in England, was traveling in New Zealand when she disappeared without a trace.

The fact that Millane’s parents reported her missing three days after she failed to respond to the birthday presents they gave her on December 2, 2018, adding to her fears, prompted police to launch an investigation into her disappearance and to locate them.

In a second interview with police, the man suspected of Grace Millane’s murder claims that the British traveler died as a result of an accident by voluntary asphyxiation. The content of this interview was communicated to the jury in Auckland.

The community, which Millane was a part of at the University of Lincoln, where she received her education, shared her “deep sadness” at her death.
