Description

The savage murder of black teenager Emmett Till in Mississippi has haunted America for 62 years. He was the 14-year-old Chicago boy who in 1955 went on holiday to visit relatives in the south and never came home. His fate was to be abducted, shot and beaten to death by two white racists who subsequently were found not guilty of murder. The shameful episode helped ignite the civil rights era, and tragic Emmett’s name was seared into the collective memory of African-Americans. Now, in an extraordinary development, a key player in the sorry drama, whose testimony protected his killers, has confessed that she lied in court all those years ago. Turn to Revealed: The Lies That Launched A Lynching.

Three On Death Row For Murder Of Guildford Girl, takes us to Texas and the murder-for-hire killing, instigated by her husband, that claimed the life of British-born and raised mother-of-three Farah Fratta. Physically, emotionally and sexually abused by her husband, Farah had finally thrown Robert Fratta out of the family home. But her courageous decision proved to have deadly consequences.

Lifelong criminal and fantasist Sidney Noble was a psychopathic con-man who preyed on the elderly, drugging them to steal their cash. His despicable modus operandi earned him the moniker “Dr. Death,” when his despicable exploits were reported by the press.
