The Late Night Visitor: Episode 387

When the knock at the door came shortly after midnight, Carol & Keith Slater initially tried to ignore the noise, assuming it was just kids messing around or maybe someone at the wrong address. But as the knocking continued, Carol told Keith he should pop down and see who was at the door in case it was related to their two young children who were staying with Grandparents that night. It might be the police, maybe there had been an accident. Minutes later, Keith was dead - at just 33 years old - and so many lives changed forever.  Find out more about the UK True Crime Podcast: https://uktruecrime.com Buy tickets for my live show on 2 June in South Shields https://www.customshouse.co.uk/theatre/murder-aint-easy/ Join me at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/UKTrueCrime Join me in Sheffield on 7 September https://armchairdetectiveswanted.com/events Join the UK True Crime Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/UKTrueCrime Buy my book 'Gone Fishing' about serial killer Angus Sinclair: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gone-Fishing-Unsolved-Crimes-Sinclair/dp/1914277201 Sources https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/dec/05/experience-i-was-a-murder-suspect-for-18-years https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/crime/suspect-in-murder-case-freed-on-bail-1939045 https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/man-denies-any-involvement-1988-1411801 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPHtp9Zn5bY http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/humber/6336343.stm https://www.facebook.com/100063572408552/posts/2001351636774993/ https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/murderer-martin-brown-admits-not-105951

The Neighbour: Episode 386

It was late - almost midnight - by a quarry near the forest. The police had arrived as a car had been reported for driving in an erratic manner. The woman was clearly very uncomfortable and didn't want the officers to look inside the two suitcases. The bodycam is startling as an officer opens one of the bags. There is an audible sharp exhale of breath when what he is looking at hits home. The officer says in both horror and astonishment: "What the f***."

The Fell Runner: Episode 385

Lauren Jeska was a fell runner. As a transgender athlete, she had been asked to provide evidence of hormone levels after historical complaints to UK Athletics that she had an unfair advantage competing in women’s events because she had been born a man. The policy of the governing body required the athlete to take a blood test, but she took exception to this and feared being unable to compete. Lauren saw this as an attack on her life and decided to take drastic action. Find out more about the UK True Crime Podcast: https://uktruecrime.com Writing Credit: Megan Grant.

The Predator: Episode 382 (part 2/2)

21 year old Libby Squire, who was studying philosophy at Hull University, had been out with her friends that Thursday evening. They had been drinking around one of their mates houses before heading out. But at the end of the night the bouncers had not let her in the nightclub, The Welly, as they thought she was too tipsy. Nothing unusual here, many of us have been there - so her friends put her in a taxi and paid the fare to ensure she got home safely. But Libby didn't make it home. This week we discover the horrible truth of just what happened to Libby.

The Lawn Mower Plot: Episode 380

Susan and Christopher Whybrow - a wealthy barrister - were the fortunate occupants of a beautiful farmhouse in Leavenheath, Suffolk, set within 12 acre gardens. After almost 10 years of marriage, to many people the couple had it all; the idyllic property and a comfortable lifestyle with no money worries. And yet as we know, in all of our lives things are not often quite as we portray to the outside world. In our story today: flying lessons, an illicit affair, a trial at the Old Bailey - and a lawn mower.

Horror at the Farm: Episode 370

"The things I have done weigh heavily on my heart, on my head and my soul. A psychopath with a conscience - it's a joke really."Alexandra Morgan told her parents she was going on a spa break with a friend, but when she didn't pick up her children and dog when she should have done a few days later, her mum reported her disappearance to the police. Police enquiries pointed to a local groundworker Mark Brown and a yard he rented near Hastings: a yard with buildings and a shipping container at Little Bridge Farm. But as detectives searched for Alexandra, they found medication relating to another missing woman, Leah Ware. Was Mark Brown responsible for both disappearances?  Please support my sponsor: AG1 Try AG1 and get a FREE 1-year supply of Vitamin D AND 5 Free AG1 Travel Packs with your first purchase.  Go to: drinkAG1.com/uktruecrime Find out more about the UK True Crime Podcast: https://uktruecrime.com Join me at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/UKTrueCrime Buy my book 'Gone Fishing' about serial killer Angus Sinclair: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gone-Fishing-Unsolved-Crimes-Sinclair/dp/1914277201 Sources: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/dec/01/man-found-guilty-of-murdering-two-women-at-remote-east-sussex-farm-mark-brown https://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2022-12-01/murder-victim-alexandra-morgan-left-box-of-clues-to-help-police-catch-killer https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-64213744 https://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2022-12-01/key-events-in-the-murders-of-alexandra-morgan-and-leah-ware-by-mark-brown https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-63668378 https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-63600632 https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/oct/18/alleged-killer-said-he-was-a-psychopath-with-a-conscience-hears-jury https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/psychopath-who-kept-escort-locked-28630313 https://www.standard.co.uk/topic/mark-brown https://www.kentonline.co.uk/weald/news/builder-jailed-for-life-after-double-murder-280377/ https://www.theargus.co.uk/news/23249284.mark-brown-police-still-committed-finding-victims-missing-body/

Sunday Morning: Episode 369

It was just a normal Sunday in Cardiff when there was a knock on the door of the family home. Seventeen year old Aamir Siddiqi answered expecting his tutor, but instead was greeted by two men in balaclavas.

There is just smoke coming up.” It was two minutes into the call that he told the operator: “The thing is, I don't know where my partner is.... I went to bed early……”.

The Breakfast Killer: Episode 356

When Rebecca Aylward went to secondary school near her home in Maesteg, South Wales, she met Joshua Davies and the pair quickly hit it off and became firm friends. Rebecca and Joshua were both academic, worked hard and were soon top of the class in their results. Soon the pair began to date, but then there were concerns about Joshua's behaviour. Concerns that continued to grow, but nobody could have predicted that Joshua was capable of extreme violence. And murder. Writing Credit: Megan Grant.

Nice John - Episode 354

Everyone like John Hirst. So much so he was even known at his home in Majorca as 'Nice John'. He was found in all the right clubs and at all the events where the wealthy ex-pats gathered on the Island. Perma-tanned John lived in an expensive villa with his wife Linda and they enjoyed a fantastic lifestyle  with all the trappings of success with many exotic holidays, designer clothes and jewellery, a luxury motor boat and two top of the range cars – an open topped sports car for Linda and a top of the range Mercedes for John. But this apparent success was all based on lies and deception, and as the financial markets declined, John fled back to the UK knowing that everything was about to come crashing down, ruining the lives of many of his friends who had trusted him with their money.

Leaving the Nightclub: Episode 345

For 18 year old Katie Rackliff it was just a normal night out. She had recently split up with her boyfriend and her friends thought it would do her good to get out for the evening. But there was confusion at the end of the evening after the nightclub and Katie didn't go home with her friends as planned. Instead, she met a brutal and terrifying death. In this episode of the UK true Crime podcast I look at the terrible murder of Katie Rackliff. Writing Credit: Megan Grant.

Murder in the South-West: Episode 342

In the early hours of the morning, in Central Park in Plymouth, the bodies of Terry Sweet and Bernie Hawken were discovered lying just 200 yards apart in the park and it was clear that both had suffered a violent assault. Sadly, soon after the police arrived, Terry died from his injuries, aged just 64. Miraculously, Bernie survived the horrific attack, but his injuries were so severe that he spent the rest of his life in a wheelchair. Just who had attacked these two men?  And why?

Studying Murder: Episode 340

On the Friday, Suzanne Blamires went missing from her housing association home in the Allerton district of Bradford. Her family were immediately concerned for her welfare, but for the police Suzanne – or Amber as she was known on the streets - was a sex worker with a heroin habit and in a life that was often chaotic, they had little to go on. And by Monday Suzanne still hadn’t been found. But that morning, as the caretaker of a block of flats in Bradford watched his CV of the weekends activity, he saw to his horror Suzanne being brutally attacked....

The Lorry driver: Episode 339

This week, the Uk true crime podcast comes from the north-east of England, just by Durham. The A1 (M) is a busy motorway, and at 6.17pm on a summers day there were a few issues northbound due to an earlier fuel spillage. As the traffic slowed, none of the people in their cars patiently heading towards their destinations could have imagined that a 3.5 tonne lorry would not stop, and plough into the traffic, with terrible consequences.

The Drugs Importation: Episode 337

The international crime gang had planned everything, covered every detail. And as 33 year old Andrew Cole stood on the deck, he realised that his whole life depended on what happened in the next few hours. Andrew was listed as crew on the manifest, but his role was a very clear one – it was up to him to ensure the safe receipt, passage and transfer of the cocaine to a crew who were going to come out from the UK to take delivery of it near the English Channel. But as the Kahu reached the end of its journey from Barbados as it cruised past Guernsey, Andrew thought he heard a noise – or was it just his imagination playing tricks on him? He then clearly saw two vessels approach and to his horror he realised that is was the 42 metre Border Force cutter ‘Searcher’ along with the 19 metre coastal patrol vessel ‘Alert’. The gang had been rumbled....

The Murder of Anna Kenny: Bonus Mini-Episode

20 year old Anna Kenny was walking to George Square in the centre of Glasgow to get a bus home when she was taken from the street and never seen alive again. Nobody has ever been convicted of her murder. In 2021, along with co-author Chris Clark, I released a book, 'Gone Fishing' about serial killer Angus Sinclair where we suggested that Sinclair was responsible for the murder of Anna Kenny. Can it just be coincidence that Anna's friend who was with her on the night she went missing married Sinclair's brother-in-law Gordon Hamilton? And why did Sinclair and Hamilton argue so badly on the night ahead of the wedding that the two never spoke again - was this about Anna's murder? My book, 'Gone Fishing' hasn't been available for a while but now it is back available to buy on Amazon, on kindle & paperback, and you can hear more about the terrible solved - and unsolved - crimes of Angus Sinclair.

War Games: Episode 334

Carradale is a village on the east coast of Kintyre, off the west coast of Scotland and looking over the west coast of the Isle of Aaron in the Firth of Clyde. The harbour at Carradale is sheltered and looks out at the deep waters of Kibrannan Sound and then the towering mountains of Aaron. It is a beautiful, peaceful spot and if you look carefully, you will see a small memorial plaque on the harbour wall, commemorating the crew of the FV Antares, who lost their lives at sea. In this episode of the UK True Crime Podcast, I look at just what happened to the FV Antares off the coast of Scotland.

A Glasgow Double Murder: Episode 328

This week, the UK True Crime podcast is from Cambuslang, about 6 miles southeast of the centre of Glasgow, as I look at a terrifying double murder. The body of 36 year-old taxi driver Cathy McChord was found with her body crammed into the boot of the car, with the meter still running. Cathy’s cigarette lighter, inhaler and car keys placed in a straight-line. Suggesting a ritualistic element to the crime. Two months after Cathy’s murder another body was found when 48 year-old Elizabeth Walton was found in the grounds of her daughter’s school. After declining a lift home, Elizabeth was attacked and then strangled as she walked back home from an evening out. When police found Elizabeth’s body they found ritualistic and symbolic acts had taken place, similar to those of Cathy. The police knew they were searching for a double killer.....

This show is touring for the next year and will be at a theatre near you soon - I highly recommend buying a ticket and finding out much more about some of the investigations in which David has personally been involved, as well as other high-profile cases. After the show. David kindly agreed to chat with me about his past career and what he is currently doing, especially with helping the families of victims of crime abroad.

Tragedy at Tebay: Episode 320

It was a dark, winters morning as the 10 men group carried out maintenance on the railway line near Tebay. The men wore their safety helmets to block out the noise of their machinery and there was no look-out as the line was closed in both directions. So when the 20 tonne wagon came hurtling down the track towards them at 40 miles per hour it was completely unexpected. As one fellow worker put it, "This was the worst nightmare for any rail man - an un-manned wagon coming straight at you out of the pitch darkness." Four men were killed instantly that morning and others injured in the tragedy. Today, I tell their story.

The Iceman: Episode 318

Harry was found downstairs in the utility room. He had been shot once, through the back, piercing his heart and killing him almost instantly. Nicola was upstairs in the main bedroom. She had been shot 4 times, three times down stairs, and a further shot as she had made her way into the bedroom, presumably to escape. The killer had placed the duvet over her head before carrying out the final fatal shot. Just who had killed this young couple in their own home in East Sussex?

The difficulty the police experienced was that there was no ID on the man at all, just an expensive rolex watch on his wrist. Would this help them find the man and just what happened to him?

Live Interview With Author Jason Wilson at CrimeCon London

At CrimeCon London last weekend, I had the pleasure of interviewing author Jason Wilson about his excellent new book, 'The Old Man And Me'. In front of a live audience, we chatted about why he wrote his book about growing up and living with his gangster father. The book is no nonsense and talks about the reality of crime, not the glamourised versions you hear about elsewhere, and in this interview Jason was very open about his life. I hope you enjoy and there is link to the book below. Buy your copy here:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Old-Man-thrilling-biography-understand/dp/1913406881

The Secret History of Flight 149

Imagine boarding a flight thinking you’re going on holiday, but instead you get taken hostage by Saddam Hussein.  It might sound far-fetched, but in August 1990 this really happened to the passengers and crew of British Airways Flight 149.  What followed has been dubbed the most shocking government cover-up of the last thirty years, and now there’s a new podcast about it. In this new podcast you’ll hear directly from the hostages - the people used as human shields by the Iraqi regime. Listen to episode one here today. For episode two and beyond, you should go and search for The Secret History of Flight 149 in your podcast app. If you’re listening on Apple podcasts, then it’s also available ad-free on the Crowd Stories channel.

Introducing 'The Apology Line' - from Wondery

If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that.  This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end who became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything.  From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six episode series.  Listen today at http://wondery.fm/UKTrueCrime

The Balcombe Street Gang (part2/2): Episode 193

It was in August 1974, that the first members of the IRA Active Service Unit later named 'The Balcombe Street Gang' touched down in Heathrow. Between October 1974 and December 1975, they carried out at least 40 bomb and gun attacks in and around London, leading to one description of them as 'the most violent, ruthless and highly trained unit ever sent to Britain by the Provisional IRA. In the concluding episode of this two-part story, we continue to tell the stories of those who were the victims of this gang, until their capture in December 1975.

The Rogue Trader: Episode 191

We have all seen the films of the glamour - as some may see it - of being a trader along with the huge financial bonuses. But when things go wrong, losses can accelerate rapidly.

The three friends were excited about the summer Regatta they were about to take part in as they set sail from the harbour in Bembridge, Isle of Wight, heading for Dartmouth on the south-west coast.

Three Deadly Letters: Episode 183

In our celebrity culture, how we look has never been more important. Some people go to amazing lengths to achieve the look they want, but other 'normal' people - like you or me - take products to help them reach their goals. In today's episode of the UK True Crime podcast, we look at what can happen when we are unaware of exactly what we are taking. And who profits from this - as there is no doubt that someone also profits from the misery caused.

A Question of Motive: Episode 182

Deptford sits on the River Thames in South-East London. It is a bustling place - well, normally - and was home to 69 year old Noel Brown. When he didn't answer his phone for a couple of days his daughter, Marie, went to his home to see what was wrong. But then she also didn't answer calls from her daughter. Why?

Escalating Tensions: Episode 180

Living close to your neighbours is not always easy. We can't choose who lives near us and we can sometimes not particularly like how they choose to live their lives. When Alison Morrison and her family moved to Harrow in north-west London there were problems immediately with her neighbour Trevor Gibbon, who moaned about the noise her son made skateboarding. But nobody could have predicted the shocking conclusion to this neighbours dispute.

The Perfect Family: Episode 173

We see it on Facebook and other social media all the time just how perfect the lives of our friends/family are, don't we.  But of course, it isn't true. We just see what they want us to see and have no reality about what really happens in their lives. Which is why it was so shocking when Paul Crymble from a small village in Northern Ireland was murdered in the summer of 2004. He lived a quiet life with his wife and children and had no ememies - just why was he killed?

Neighbours From Hell: Episode 172

Every town in the UK has some less desirable estates, and Stratford Upon Avon is no different. Beyond the tourists flocking to the place of Shakespeare's birth, life on the Clopton estate was pretty miserable for most. The Erskine family lived on the estate and were a hard-working, kind and respectful family. But they soon become a target of abuse for some of their less savoury neighbours. And on 3 January 1996, events took a terrible turn....

The Three Brothers: Episode 171
