Description

Did farmer John Hornick murder loner James Redmond close to the latter’s gypsy-style caravan in County Wexford that chilly January day in 1937? The jury at Dublin’s Central Criminal Court in April that year held a firm belief, especially after the judge warned them not to be frightened or put off by the fact that the case depended heavily on circumstantial evidence. But if Hornick did commit murder he could hardly be said to have squandered the profits on beer and women. His only extravagance seems to have been a set of Bakelite cups and saucers from Woolworths.

Three Londoners got the shock of their lives when they opened their newspapers in March 1949 and read that John George Haigh had been arrested for the murder of widow Mrs. Olive Durand-Deacon at Haigh’s workshop in Crawley, Sussex. Why were the trio shocked? Because they all knew Haigh personally. He had asked each in turn to visit his workshop, but they had all declined. Now they realised that Haigh had invited them with murder in mind… Those Who Lived To Tell The Tale, part 2 of The Acid Bath Murders.

According to the FBI, Larry Eyler was “a homosexual with a hatred of himself for being homosexual.” In 1978 – the year John Wayne Gacy was arrested and with his victim tally already in double figures – Eyler moved to Chicago.
