  • “I Lost My Head, And Then He Lost His…”
    (True Crime December 2020)

    Like most owners and their dogs, Joe Rogers and his black Labrador, Buster, would go for a long walk together every day, rain or shine. A favourite route of theirs was to follow the banks of the Merrimack River in Massachusetts for a few miles, while Buster chased a ball or sniffed out sticks to chew on. But one cold, autumn morning in 2016, Buster would find something genuinely horrific. As usual, he had run on ahead of Joe, searching out good places for a sniff or a root around. On this particular morning, he discovered a large object that had washed ashore. As Joe got nearer, the lump turned out to be the body… more »

  • Father And Daughter Killing Team
    (Master Detective December 2020)

    Frank Spencer was a popular businessman with an unusual belief. He was convinced that he was going to die, and soon. What’s more, he was equally convinced about who would kill him, and he rarely missed a chance to tell anyone willing to listen. On Sunday, July 1st, 2012, a typical sunny summer’s day in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Frank’s body was found in his home, shot twice. Once by a rifle from a distance, once close up by a hand gun. “When he didn’t answer my calls that day,” recalled Joe Yoddock, an old friend from school, “I recall thinking I hope he’s not dead. All his friends knew what he’d been through domestically, and when… more »

    (True Detective December 2020)

    The romantic idyll of the middle-aged couple came to a tragic end that hot day August 3rd, 1990. In the morning Peter Heron drove off to his office. Ann, who had a part-time job as a care assistant, wasn’t working that day, so she went shopping.  Before her husband left home that day she asked him: “Please get home in good time tonight. I don’t want to be late for the party.” And her husband willingly agreed. Ann was back at their luxurious home, Aeolian House, by 1 p.m., when Peter came home for lunch. He went back to his office an hour later and because the weather was now becoming really hot Ann changed… more »

  • What Happened To Peter Falconio?
    (Murder Most Foul No. 118)

    Joanne Lees and Peter Falconio were an adventurous young couple, travelling to Italy, Greece and Jamaica. Then, undaunted by the disquieting news of the backpacker murders and the Port Arthur killings, they planned a trip to Thailand, Singapore and Australia. On November 15th, 2000, they set out through Nepal and Malaysia, arriving in Sydney in mid-January 2001. For the next five months Joanne worked in a bookshop in George Street and the couple enjoyed the city’s nightclub scene. Then the adventure continued. Falconio bought the Volkswagen T2 Kombi for their road trip to Melbourne, and from there to Adelaide, Darwin and Brisbane. The journey from Adelaide in the south to Darwin in the far north… more »
