The huge crowd surged forward, cheering wildly as the group appeared on the stage. That day Malcolm gillespie took the lead, on other occasions Catherine Humphrey and Margaret Dixon would star. Their stories, recalled in this issue, make fascinating reading and form part of the newly researched cases in our Scottish series.
Have you ever wondered why so many women throw themselves at convicted serial killers? Peter Sutcliffe attracted scores of female admirers, many of whom write to and visit him in Broadmoor. Ted Bundy received proposals of marriage and fan mail from women while he was living out his days on Florida’s Death Row. These bizarre females are a well-known phenomenon, perhaps driven by some masochistic abnormality. But what explanation can be given for a man who so hero-worships a serial killer that he begains to emulate his behaviour? Richard Starrett thought Bundy was a hero, and kept news cuttings on rates and murders. He is now seriving five life terms in prison.
It is quite refreshing to read ‘Voice From The Chair’ because the feelings of prison wardens on convicts they guard is so rarely voiced. Yet prison staff are ideally situated to form opinions of character – and Deputy Warden Schmuhl has some interesting revelations to make in what is an inside story!
