  • Terrible Torture On Ryan’s Ranch
    (Murder Most Foul No. 128)

    God began speaking through Michael Ryan at some time in the early 1980s. Note that God did not speak to Michael Ryan, but through him. That, according to Ryan, meant that he was God himself. Ryan got together some 20 or so followers who seemed prepared to believe that he must be God, and bought a compound at Rulo, in that little corner of America where Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri come together and formed a mystical survivalist group in which he was a prophet proclaiming the end of the world was nigh. To deal with this they would need a paramilitary solution, so they stockpiled weapons and vitamins. Ryan sent out the cult members to… more »

  • Paedophile Monster Kept Girls Locked Up In Dungeon Of Doom
    (True Detective July 2023)

    Marc Dutroux. For Belgians his name remains toxic; a reminder of a criminal horror story that unfolded in the 1990s and left the nation collectively traumatised, outraged and deeply troubled. A rapist and killer, Dutroux was dubbed “The Beast of Belgium” by the press as the world looked on, appalled by his depraved, psychopathic actions.

  • Sex Slaves Incinerated On A Sussex Farm
    (True Crime June 2023)

    Officers shifted the search to a building site near Sevenoaks where Mark Brown was working, and discovered he’d asked permission to dump a burned-out oil drum on a skip there.

Mark Brown was arrested for murder, but this time said Alex had died in a tragic accident at the container: “She slipped on some tools on the floor and flew through the air like a cartoon character on a banana skin. She hit her head as she landed. I panicked. Burned her in an oil drum.” Brown… more »

  • Hampshire Boyfriend Butchered By Serial Killer Groupie
    (Master Detective June 2023)

    Shaye Groves was obsessed with serial killers, and her boyfriend, 25-year-old Frankie Fitzgerald, loved it – right up until the moment she decided to try it for herself... According to Shaye, in the heat of the moment, in fear for her life she tried to grab something to hit Frankie with, to stop him attacking her. “I reached out to grab an object on the bookcase and I hit him in the throat,” she continued. “I have a money box there and I thought that if I hit him with that it would get him off. He rolled off and he stood up and slid down the wall really slowly.” Then Shaye described what happened… more »
