Murder Most Foul No. 86
Their eyes met. First a glance, then a smile. The stage was set for romance. Soon Cem and Muneyver were holding hands, next he was presenting her to his family. Despite the gulf between them Valentine’s Day 2009 seemed to belong to them. But from then on the relationship went downhill until the unthinkable happened three weeks later…“I was determined to see the images, but now I wish I hadn’t,” the court reporter said. “The video film showed a large garbage container and in it a suitcase and a guitar box…Muneyver’s black hair appeared as the guitar case was opened…” Modern shocker from Turkey.
The jury retired and two hours later they returned with their verdict. But many of the spectators in court were shocked, and when the large crowd outside heard the news there was a “perfect howl of indignation.” However, there was one person who was happy with the outcome of the trial, for luck seemed to have been on his side. He also benefited from the fact that his family could afford the best defence lawyers and that he’d committed the crime on the Isle of Man.
It was 1946 and the whole world was settling into peace. But the Dorset village with the quaint name – population 1,000 – was about to prove that passions could run just as high in the rural backwaters as they did in a big city.
Harry Hayward took a course in hypnotism and used it to devastating effect on a simple-minded accomplice. Even Hayward’s execution was an extraordinary spectacle. Two days before, he told the sheriff he would go quietly to the gallows on condition that the scaffold was painted bright red and the rope was dipped in red dye. Amazingly, both requests were complied with, although two more were not.
