Docker's Duchess, Harbour Harlot, Cockley Cley Corpse Clue?

The investigation to solve the mystery of the headless female corpse found in Cockley Cley in 1974 has headed east to Great Yarmouth. Stories of a roaming lady around the docks area in the early part of the 70s, known to dockers and truckers as Duchess, may provide the key jigsaw piece to solve the crime. 
Profiling the water consumed by the exhumed body, from her unmarked grave in Swaffham two years ago, proved inconclusive. 
Thirthy six years ago the victim's badly decomposed headless body, concealed in weeds off the Cockley Cley Road near Swaffham, was found by a farm worker. She was wearing a pink frilled M&S nightdress and wrapped in a brown plastic sheet bearing the letters NCR, only six of which were made by a Scottish company between 1962 and 1968. The young woman seems not to have been missed by anyone and the identity of both victim and perpetrator remains unknown.
