Description

Breaking Bad was a hugely successful TV show that won critical acclaim and devoted audiences. Now, though, it stands accused of inspiring murder. Killers, seemingly inspired by a lead character’s attempts to dispose of a body using hydrofluoric acid, have been making headlines across America and around the world. Should the TV programme-makers be handing out such practical advice to lawbreakers? There is a grim echo of the technique in Acid Bath Psycho Tried To Dissolve Irish Nurse’s Body. But The Breaking Bad Murder – featuring an addict of the morally ambiguous show – is an even more extreme example of life imitating art.

Glasgow in 1968 was the scene of a horrific double-murder, when a naked footprint proved crucial in convicting the culprit. Turn to Weird Case Of The Killer Under The Bed.
