Proving once again that true crime is not just a modern fascination, a crowd had amassed early at 4 am on that winter morning of December 6, 1922, desperate to witness the trial. Members of the public pushed and prodded as they fought to get in. Every spectator was hopeful of gaining a ringside seat in the courtroom. Some people paid for the privil…
 
“You behaved how you did despite the serious nature of the charge your sons faced and persisted in attempts to give them a false alibi for two months.

One of the men reached into his pocket to get out the money to pay. He pawed at a wedge of £10 notes.

There was no break in their polite conversation. The customer had not notice…

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 footage captured by a CCTV camera around 2:30 am, early that Saturday morning is grainy. It pictures a corridor on the third floor of a building. A male and a female are walking side by side. They enter one of the flats through the front door. Minutes later, the door flings open, and the woman is seen running as fast as she can... (Part 1 of 3)…
 
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 …

The attack shocks the quiet suburban neighbourhood as police struggle to…
 
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; …
 
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 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…
 
If you google "Rocklyn in Carnkie", the first articles that appear mention cruel and senseless murders committed in 2000.

There was never any need for one to visit, let alone patrol — it was that k…

In the years following the murders of Alexander and Dorothy Wood, urban legend surrounding the case spread, with unsubstantiated claims published in the newspaper pages across Britain.

Valentine's day in 1945 began like any other day for 74-year-old Charles Walton.

In 2018, one week after the new year's celebrations, a middle-aged woman enters Cheadle Heath police station in Stockport.

It was a typical room for a teenage boy in the 1980s; football programmes on his desk with his homework, a well used Amstrad HI-FI system with a tape cassette and radio, used to record the top chart hits on a Sunday, hitting the pause button before the DJ fades back in. Posters of his favourite musical acts covered the walls; Mel and Kim, T'Pau, Ma…
