Description

With the imminent publication of a new book, this month’s True Detective studies the most famous serial killer ever. Ripperologists across the world will surely find the latest theory fascinating – were the Whitechapel murders committed to form a pentagram? Was the answer to the murders in the occult? William Kendal compares Ivor J. Edwards new conclusions with those of the famous criminologist and crime author Leonard Gribble, who first put forward his theory in 1973.

Continuing our Murder, Mystery & Suspense series, Matthew Spicer recounts a fascinating tale of intrigue surrounding Wellington’s column and we ask you to don your detective caps and write to tell us whether the right men were convicted of murder.

From America we go behind the scenes in Huntsville, Texas, to see how the capital of capital punishment survives. And we follow recent executions, including the first black woman to be put to death in nearly 50 years. She was Wanda Jean Allen who died by lethal injection on Friday, January 12, 2001 in Oklahoma – her last words being: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”

How could Julie Alban, the innocent survivor of domestic violence, muster the strength of character to forgive, or at least move on, after being paralysed from the waist down at the tender age of 20? Jeff Woolf reports on a woman of remarkable endurance who is helping other women to speak out and stop becoming victims themselves.
