True Detective May 2022


Two thematically linked, shocking multiple-murder cases from the UK and US feature in this month’s edition. Atrocities don’t come much worse – and, fortunately, the perpetrators have been brought to justice. First, “Families Wiped Out USA – A Monster Among Us” tells of the horrific, deadly work of bigamous Alabaman family slayer Christopher Henderson and his cruel and twisted wife Rhonda Carlson. Next, in “Crimes That Made The Headlines – Massacred For Money” (Families Wiped Out UK) we look at the heinous 2003 killings of businessman Amarjit Chohan and his family. Their lives were snuffed out at the behest of notorious gangster and one-time Mr. Big Kenneth Regan, who had wanted to take over Mr. Chohan’s CIBA Freight business.

Henderson, who it is said had no underlying health issues or criminal history, committed his atrocity in July 2015, and is now behind bars on Alabama’s Death Row, having been convicted of 15 counts of capital murder. At his sentencing hearing he told his own and his victims’ relatives, “This is an event that should’ve never happened.” He was right, but his apology meant little or nothing to those whose innocent loved ones were taken from them in the most appalling of circumstances.

Elsewhere, we travel to Queensland for “Murder In the Boardroom”, the latest historical case in our Hanged In Australia series. What was supposed to be a routine board meeting at the Charters Towers Pyrites Company became a memorable one for all the wrong reasons.
