Description

Businesswoman Debbie Buxton was just 35 years old when she was bludgeoned and stabbed to death while out walking her dogs in a rural Derbyshire beauty spot. Her murder, in April 1993, at the hands of a jobless, woman-hating local man called David Bond shocked the nation. When it emerged that Bond had been paroled from prison just weeks before the murder, serious questions were raised. Now, two and a half decades later, the killer has completed his minimum sentence but many remain adamant that he must remain behind bars. Turn to Crimes That Made The Headlines – No Parole For Derbyshire’s Riverside Killer, for the full story.

Questions & Answers – Ireland’s Shocking Tale Of The Murderous “Border Fox,” looks back at another chilling 1990s case, this time from County Clare. A young mother, her three-year-old son and a priest would die at the hands of Brendan O’Donnell. But was his killing spree the result of undiagnosed mental health problems?

For decades the identity of San Francisco Bay’s “Gypsy Hill Killer” remained a mystery. But then the emergence of new DNA evidence placed Rodney Halbower in the frame – and he was already behind bars. Look for America’s Most Evil – The Man Who Was “The Gypsy Hill Killer”…And The Woman Who Wasn’t, for the full story.

Finally, don’t miss the second part of When True Detective Captured John Dillinger, held over from the last issue. It’s well worth the wait. Enjoy the read, and let us know what you think!
