THE CORNFIELD KILLER: GUN ORDEAL FOR CASHIER; Jacqueline Moreham: Theatre worker haunted by armed robbery.
Stone, wearing a woman's woolly hat, made off with pounds 600. But police caught him because the bank clerk managed to switch on the security cameras which captured these images at the Leeds building society in Brighton in November 1986.
A month earlier Stone had carried out a carbon copy raid at the Hazlitt theatre in Maidstone, Kent.
He used an airgun with a piece of metal attached to make it look like a bolt-action rifle.
Cashier Jacqueline Moreham is still haunted by the memory. Stone pointed his gun at her and said: "Look at this. Give us your money."
Jacqueline, 55, handed over pounds 40 and he fled.
She suffers flashbacks but was determined to rebuild her life and still works at the theatre.
She said: "The incident was over in seconds but I couldn't help thinking how weird he was. He struck me as really odd, not a normal young man all."
Jacqueline later learned Stone was jailed for 10 years for the Brighton robbery.
Then she was horrified to read that he had been arrested for the Russell murders.
She said: "I hoped and prayed it was a different man. But in my heart I knew it was him.
"It brought back all the old memories. I was the lucky one because he didn't attack me."
