Ruth Ellis, the dyed-blonde drinking-club manageress and killer, went to the gallows 67 years ago yet her story continues to fascinate. She was the last woman hanged in Britain and her case is the final one to be featured in our series on executed women. Was she a cold-blooded murderess or the provoked victim of a cad who should only have been found guilty of manslaughter? See this issue’s “Women On The Gallows – How Ruth Became The Last To Hang” for the full story.

North London teen Bernard Oliver disappeared in January 1967. Ten days later his dismembered remains were found dumped in two suitcases in the village of Tattingstone. Who killed him remains a mystery. More in MD Forum – “Suffolk’s “Body In A Suitcase”.
