MAJOR BRITISH MURDER CASES: HOW BITE-MARKS TRAPPED A GRAVEYARD KILLER
It has been said that William Muncie was one of the finest Scottish detectives of his age. This is not surprising since he was involved in 54 murder investigations, all of which were solved

THIRTY-FOUR YEARS FOR WAKEFIELD’S DOUBLE-KILLER
The Afghan teenager was furious when his girlfriend walked out on him. Determined to teach her a lesson, he stabbed to death her sister and her friend then tried to flee the country

“Each day seemed to expose a new horror,” a stunned wife said. “How could I not have realised what sort of man he was? How could I have married him? And why didn’t I speak up?”

“WE KILLED TOGETHER SO WE SHOULD DIE TOGETHER”

“HE WANTED SEX BUT I HAD A GUN”
In 1961 anyone over 16 could obtain a deadly weapon in the US state of Vermont. No permit was required. And the girl in the blue suit, black cloth coat and black silk scarf wanted one. It was as simple as that

HORROR OF THE MANIAC STALKER
This case must rank as one of the worst and longest stalking cases ever – 18 years. And even prison doesn’t look likely to end it
