Description

The case was signed with the murder of a prostitute in her Norfolk home, sealed with her killer’s conviction and delivered with his subsequent execution at Norwich Prison. End of story you might think? Not quite, for the execution part went horribly wrong. In fact, it was botched. “Goldthorpe plummeted down on a seven-foot-eight-inch drop and stopped with a great jerk…Then I heard the most spine-chilling sound I ever heard in an execution chamber. There were noises coming from under the hood. ‘The hanging’s gone wrong,’ I exclaimed. ‘He’s still alive!’”

Mario and Liliane set up home in a flat on the banks of the Rhine. He worked in a pizza parlour during the day while she got a job as a cleaner in a factory at night. They had plenty of money but inevitably Liliane found the polishing and scrubbing back-breaking. She was always tired. But completely unknown to Mario, Liliane had never set foot inside a factory in her life…
