The cases of Peter Young and John C. Colt, featured his month, seem centuries apart. It is easy to imagine the Edinburgh streets at the time of Young’s hanging as events from the dark ages, but there is only 50 or so years between the Young case and the extraordinary saga played out in the Tombs Prison in New York. It seems the world changed so much in such a short time.
One of the most eye-opening cases published in True Crime for some time is the Arctic Murder. It highlights the plight of a tribe of Eskimos not known to the western world until 1911. The story is one of murder, but that is not all. It is a social document to a way of life now lost to this planet for all time.
On a more modern subject, the first two stories are prime examples of rage taking over from reason, and coupled with a readily available weapon. If there had not been a knife in the car in the Tracie Andrews case or a gun beside the baby food in the American murder, two men would be alive today and their partners still leading a normal life.
