Hanged at Barlinnie – the new series
True Crime March 1996
Hanged at Barlinnie tells the stories of some of the toughest and meanest men ever to haunt Glasgow, giving it a bad name before they ended their days on the end of a rope. This vibrant new series deals with an intriguing array of desperate characters – from half-hearted tough guys to dangerously demented “hard men.”
They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but the woman in this case had not been scorned. She had succeeded in driving a wedge between her lover and his daughter, and souring a perfectly amicable relationship between him and his estranged but contented wife. Three Women Shot Dead In Country Garden is a story of pathological jealousy, yet the murders were planned with cold-blooded ruthlessness. Why were the three slain? And why did the killer hire her parents and brother as farm-hands, keeping their identities a secret from her lover?
Why is it that rape is still regarded by many as being motivated by lust? A double-bill of American cases ought to finish that idea – not one of the victims was under the age of 86, and one of them enjoyed good health! Needless to say their attackers were young and strong, and put the old ladies through unspeakably hellish deaths.
