At last a happy ending – Elizabeth Smart found after missing for 9 months.
True Detective June 2003
This month’s True Detective starts with an unusally happy ending – Elizabeth Smart has been found – justifying her father’s unshakeable belief throughout the last nine months that she was still alive.
If crime stories are not usually happy, they are often dramatic and Mark Davis hears three accounts from men whose fate took them to spend a sum total of 36 years on Death Row for crimes they did not commit. What did they learn from their experience? How has it shaped them?
Louise Pearce opens up the debate on euthanasia with a case from France which highlighted the need for the issue to be discussed and regulated.
Marshall Hall returns to the pages of True Detective with an original theory on what really happened to the Brides In The Bath, and the Sex Murders Of The 60s series takes us to Margate during the middle of the era of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. The residents around Dane’s Park were used to being scandalised by the goings-on at night, then when a teenager’s body was found naked and strangled in the park early in the morning, they were horrified.
This month’s selection of true crime stories provides a fascinating ahd thought-provoking mix of cases from all over the world, historic and modern.
