Description

This issue tackles the thorny subject of capital punishment in Australia and the United States. We have compiled a definitive list of the men and women hanged in Australia between 1900 and 1967 and relate the controversial case of Ronald Ryan, the last man to be hanged at Melbourne’s Pentridge Prison. Then we focus on the horrific murders which put Corey Hamilton on Death Row in 1992. He became the first man to be put to death by lethal injection in the United States this year and his last words included no apologies, just a wish that his victims’ families would find peace.

There are many fascinating cases in this issue, from Andrea Giovino’s story of what it was like married to a mobster, to Nick Yarris’s account of the emotional turmoil he went through on Pennsylvania’s Death Row when his friend was executed.

Murder is not a light subject in any sense of the word but it is unfortunately part of the world we inhabit, so when we find stories about people who spend their lives combating crime, we salute them. J.J. Armes is one such man. You will be uplifted.

Please note – Many of the cases in the American issue of True Detective have already been published in True Detective, True Crime, Master Detective & Murder Most Foul.
