Season 5 - Episode 46

5/5/2021
Love, betrayal, jealousy and greed are themes that are as old as time. These emotions can dominate someone's thoughts and lead them to murder. But if they take a life, they seldom get away with it. So focused on the spoils of their ill-gotten gains, they think scarcely about the person that is gone or how the death will negatively impact the lives of the victim's loved ones. However, after their arrest, the murderer will have decades to think about what they have done in their prison cell,...

A mother of two is found bludgeoned to death in a suspected burglary gone wrong. The attack is barbaric. Blood spatter covers the ceiling. But in spite of the carnage, only a small sum of money has been stolen. Is a woman's life really worth the £100 that was reported missing? The attack shocks the quiet suburban neighbourhood as police struggle to find a suspect. Is this really a random attack, or is someone closer to home responsible?...

After conception, if a fertilised egg splits in two, it produces identical twins. They can share the same sac in the womb, rapidly growing, entwined with each other. Their DNA is almost identical, so similar in fact, it was, only until recently, impossible to tell them apart. When they are raised, they encounter many of life's milestones together; they go to the same school, know the same people, and often experience the same things. When they are grown, the twins might go their separate...

From the start, it was clear to detectives that this was a murder inquiry. Officers were immediately dispatched to search the area for a possible suspect, maybe someone in bloody clothes or acting suspiciously. Onlookers had seen a man fleeing the scene. They noted he was wearing a light beige waist-length jacket. But despite a quick response from the Kent constabulary, asking all potential witnesses near the scene if they had seen anything, officers drew a blank… *** LISTENER CAUTION IS...

Approaching its eighth week, during the trial the jury were told of the 100 plus injuries that were inflicted. Weighing six and a half stone, Angela Wrightson was beaten, not only punched and kicked, but assaulted with a table, a printer, a television, and a vase, over the course of several hours… (Part 3 of 3). *** LISTENER CAUTION IS...

The property did not stand out. Closed vertical blinds shielded the windows from prying eyes. The front door and brick facade were painted white. The chipped paint was offset against half a dozen bouquets of flowers all the colours of the rainbow, that had been secured to a drainpipe running parallel against the front door. In County Durham, around two weeks before Christmas 2014, the body of a female was discovered in a property located a short distance from Hartlepool town centre… (Part 1...

If you google "Rocklyn in Carnkie", the first articles that appear mention cruel and senseless murders committed in 2000. The views and B&Bs in the sleepy, scenic west Cornwall village take second place. The villagers had seldom seen a police officer in the area, if at all. There was never any need for one to visit, let alone patrol — it was that kind of place. But in the autumn of 2000, officers swarmed a family home at midnight when five people went missing… *** LISTENER CAUTION IS...

Just north of an old toll bridge on the border of Dalkeith, Scotland sits a property called The Neuk in Bridge End. The beautiful home with servant quarters and outbuildings in Midlothian was the place for an exceptional party on February 3, 1911. As the evening was drawing to its conclusion, a party deemed a roaring success, it was time for one last drink, a coffee.

A forensic team dressed head to toe in white overalls combed the field. In their hunt for clues, they stood several metres apart as they steadily manoeuvred through the muddy grassland which was bordered by trees and dense bushes. A nearby road was closed off, and tracking dogs were deployed around the scene. The discovery was made by refuse collectors near the Cheshire village of Ashley located on the boundary of Greater Manchester… *** LISTENER CAUTION IS ADVISED *** Become a ‘Patreon...

It was the middle of summer — Sunday, July 22, 1990. At 11.30 pm, a musician, Gordon Wilson, was walking back from a late-night recording session on Holloway Road in London. He noticed the women and presumed they were just in a deep sleep. He was in a rush, and the last train was due to leave from Holloway Road underground station. Wilson didn't pause on his journey; it was dark, and he had no reason to think he needed to… *** LISTENER CAUTION IS ADVISED *** Become a ‘Patreon Producer’...
