Description

This month it is 40 years since Gwynne Owen Evans and Peter Anthony Allen were hanged for the murder of bachelor Alan West in his King’s Avenue, Workington, home. Both men blamed each other for the murder, but who was telling the truth? The trial judge asked the jury to examine the evidence of Mary Evans very carefully. For Mary, you see, had sat in the car while her husband and Evans went inside…

It was the mother of all arguments that ended the life of a Halifax grandfather. Mother is the appropriate word as a 50-year-old mum and her 28-year-old son were involved in an argument that turned violent, resulting in the elderly victim being savagely tortured for more than six hours before he died of his horrific injuries.

The long-distance phone call to their daughter in London’s East End was horrific. For the parents of Finnish student Suvi Aronen rang at the exact moment she was being attacked, a brutal assault that ended in her murder shorly after she got off a bus to walk to her lodgings in Wanstead.
