Description

Our special report in January’s MD, Inside The Mind Of A Cannibal, sparked the interest of many of you – but one reader wanted to know more about the extraordinary case of Armin Meiwes. In MD Forum – The Life And Crimes Of A Cannibal Killer, we present the full, incredible story. Don’t miss it.

We’re in Shakespeare country, for the latest instalment of Unsolved Murders Of The 1950s, asking, Who Put Olive In The Avon? Victim Olive Bennet was a midwife who for weeks had been possessed by the urge to meet a man. Her obsession would, tragically, cost her her life.

Finally, take a trip to the Granite City for an encounter with The Beast Of Aberdeen, the almost forgotten 1960s two-time child-killer James Oliphant, the latest of Scotland’s Classic Cases.  Enjoy the read!
