  • “I’m Going To Kill My Folks”
    (True Detective February 2021)

    Brett Pearson’s schoolfriends laughed when he told them he wanted to kill his parents. No one took that kind of brag seriously. It was just teenage angst – all cheap talk and empty threats. And this was especially true in the wholesome little Oregon town of Keizer where Brett and his family lived. Four miles from Salem, the state capital, Keizer is a template for small-town America. Set in rolling arable farmland, its tractors, cycleways, and flower festival are visitor attractions, and its community apparently law-abiding and church-going. Brett’s father Bill was a local businessman and his mother Michelle an accountant and Sunday school teacher. But on Wednesday, March 5th, 2014 Brett posted a Facebook… more »

  • Amanda’s Boyfriend Had To Suffer And Die – So She Could Have Sex With Her Dad
    (True Crime January 2021)

    When Amanda and Larry went to Virginia to get married, it was a modest wedding. Nothing fancy, just a simple ceremony at a small, local church. No frills, no big family do, effectively just a quiet little get-together to tie the knot. Larry didn’t give Amanda anything special, but Amanda gave Larry something – a false name. That’s right. Not a new name, a false one. Yes, that does mean alarm bells should be ringing in your mind already. Maybe they had something to hide? Was it the age gap? Larry was 55, Amanda 31. It’s true they weren’t exactly high school sweethearts, but there have been much bigger age gaps between people before. Twenty-four… more »

  • Christmas Eve Puzzler – Why Kill Kitty On Blackpool Beach?
    (Master Detective January 2021)

    It had just started to rain as Kitty Breaks stepped on to the sands. But the dark angry sky warned that this was only a prelude to the wildness to come. Already there was the sound of distant thunder. She lifted the collar of her coat, shaking her head as though reprimanding God. But she was smiling, because she liked to feel the rain on her face. On such nights, all her troubles would soon be washed away. She began to walk along the edge of the sea. It was December 1919, and Christmas was just two days away. In the distance, she could see the festive lights along the Blackpool front. Fortunately, she had… 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 »
