Description

Scotland’s Classic Cases takes us to Dundee this month as we focus on the still unsolved Templeton Woods murders of 1979 and 1980, including one shocking new theory about the identity of a possible perpetrator. Thirty-eight years after the first killing, many questions remain. Was it a coincidence that the naked bodies of victims Carol Lannen and Elizabeth McCabe were both found in the woodland on the outskirts of Dundee? Were they both victims of the same killer and, if they were, was he one of the many suspects?

Ronald True told a friend that he would murder someone. And when he did, in March 1922, it caused a national sensation, his trial becoming a test case of the rules governing crime and madness. Look out for Would They Hang The Mad Airman? Enjoy the read!
