One of the men reached into his pocket to get out the money to pay. He pawed at a wedge of £10 notes. The cashier noticed a large gold ring on one of his fingers and saw what she thought was blood above his knuckles. Maybe he had been fighting? The cashier then glanced up. There was no break in their polite conversation. The customer had not noticed her looking, or perhaps the shopper did not even know his hand was bloody... *** LISTENER CAUTION IS ADVISED *** Become a ‘Patreon Producer’...

When asked if they wanted to visit the property on Cromwell Street, the jury were unanimous in their decision. They were transported to the scene by bus. The windows were covered and jurors were told not to talk to anyone. The route they would make on foot, from the rear of the house, into the building, was shielded from view. It was vital the numerous camera crews still filming the property did not record the jury. They walked, single file, from the top of the home, moving down, floor by...

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,...

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...

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...

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...
