Master Detective January 2015
Master Detective January: Eagle-eyed readers will recall that the name of William Edmunds featured in last month’s MD. He was one of the British killers sentenced to death in the mid-1950s, only for his sentence to be commuted to life in prison. Don’t miss our full account of the crime that put him in the dock in MD Forum – “Murder Of The Cat Woman.”
“Diaries Of A Homicidal Maniac” – this month’s One Life Of Crime – tells the tale of Texan Jason Massey, who, like Edmunds but in a much later era, “graduated” from slaying animals to murder. “He’s worse than any nightmare you can imagine,” said the prosecutor. Find out why inside.
The case of Sidney Fox shocked 1930s Britain and is revisited this month. It’s a crime classic, a courtroom drama and one of the best examples of a mother’s misguided loyalty to her son. Don’t miss it – see “The Evidence That Hanged Sidney Fox” and discover a classic.
