Jolanta Bleidate was gruesomely murdered and dismembered by Vitas Plytnykas and Aleksandras Skirda at Earlsdon House, Brechin in 2008. Jolanta was killed to steal her hard earned savings from cash machines. They carried her head in a Lidl's bag  and her body in a suitcase to Arbroath's seaside harbour. This has been and is a controversial depiction but I felt that this horrific event had to be expressed in a dramatic scenario.
