Description

Many people would later call him monstrous, deranged, or demonic. But 25-year-old Charles Whitman was an intelligent and creative young man, loved by family and friends, and in the months before his awful crime he begged for help to fight the violent impulses threatening to engulf him. Tragically, no one listened.

The Callous cruelty of some people never fails to amaze and outrage. Just such people are the subject of this issue’s first report from South Africa: a killer couple who kept their hapless victim befuddled long enough to bleed his bank account dry before disposing of him as though he were rubbish.

On Christmas Eve 1970, Surrey schoolgirl Janet Stevens popped out to take presents to her grandmother. But like Little Red Riding Hood, she was stepping into unknown danger.
