Master Detective February 2019
Two stories of grisly dismemberment feature in this month’s European Crime Report. In the case of Russian victim Vera Nurbaeva, nothing more was ever found of her. And if it hadn’t been for the remorse of her killer, her murder might have gone undetected. Belgian victim Xhuliano Brahimllari had a distinctive tattoo, which enabled his body to be identified after he’d been murdered by his partners in a cannabis plantation operation.
New series Unsolved Murders Of The 1950s, with Killing That Sparked A Carnival, takes us back to 1959 and the officially unsolved London murder of 32-year-old Kelso Cochrane. In the aftermath of the killing, in a bid to encourage integration and improve race relations, the annual Notting Hill Carnival began to take shape.
