Cancer fighter Victoria, 14, joins police to help solve ‘murder riddle’

‘In charge’: Victoria with Wiltshire Police PICTURES: SWNS

A TEENAGER who has spent two years fighting cancer had her wish come true when she was given the chance to become a ‘police officer’ for a day and lead a ‘murder’ investigation.

Wiltshire Police and Make-A-Wish UK got together after hearing that Victoria Brown, 14, who was being treated for acute myeloid leukaemia, was a true-crime fan. They made her ‘detective superintendent’ and tasked her with solving a mock murder on a farm. Victoria, from Swindon, said: ‘It was amazing. I loved it — and definitely still want to be a detective.’
