True Detective March 2001
In this international issue True Detective reporters take us on a trip round the world to countries as diverse as Venezuela, America, Germany, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Britain to investigate crime cases which, of course, have some things in common – motives of lust and greed, and killers who believed they could get away with murder.
Mark Davis, reporting from Tennessee, tells the remarkable story of The Cop Who Fell Asleep. After being shot on duty he made a miracle awakening which is family believe was God given. Such was their faith in the power of good over evil that his eldest son followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the police force.
And what happened to silk millionaire Jim Thompson who went for a walk in the Malaysian jungle and vanished? With no body, and no motive for either suicide or murder, the case has baffled police, psychics, and Thompson’s good friends for 30 years. And why does the murder of his sister four months later in America remain unsolved?
The detectives amongst you may have the solution to this fascinating mystery…but will anyone be able to point to the killer in this month’s Murder, Mystery and Suspense story? Florence Hands was found dead on the alcove floor of her Portsmouth home. One leather toilet case bearing the initals AD was taken from her home, as well as a watch and small money box containing a few coins. The leather toilet case was to come into the hands of second-hand shop owner, Ernest Stein, who changed his story. Why? This extraordinary case demands close attention to the facts, because even some of the witnesses could not be believed.
