Two Brothers in Inverness: Episode 184

The two brothers from Inverness had no respect for the law and had always been linked with trouble. But as they matured and the nature of the offences got worse, would they learn their lessons?

Three Deadly Letters: Episode 183

In our celebrity culture, how we look has never been more important. Some people go to amazing lengths to achieve the look they want, but other 'normal' people - like you or me - take products to help them reach their goals. In today's episode of the UK True Crime podcast, we look at what can happen when we are unaware of exactly what we are taking. And who profits from this - as there is no doubt that someone also profits from the misery caused.

A Question of Motive: Episode 182

Deptford sits on the River Thames in South-East London. It is a bustling place - well, normally - and was home to 69 year old Noel Brown. When he didn't answer his phone for a couple of days his daughter, Marie, went to his home to see what was wrong. But then she also didn't answer calls from her daughter. Why? In this episode of the UK True Crime Podcast, I examine just what happened in Deptford in December 2017.

Harry and Megan Tooze lived on a remote farm in the Vale of Glamorgan and enjoyed a quiet, private retirement. But one day in the summer of 1993, that life was shattered as both were killed in what was described as a "brutal, macabre execution".

Escalating Tensions: Episode 180

Living close to your neighbours is not always easy. We can't choose who lives near us and we can sometimes not particularly like how they choose to live their lives. When Alison Morrison and her family moved to Harrow in north-west London there were problems immediately with her neighbour Trevor Gibbon, who moaned about the noise her son made skateboarding. But nobody could have predicted the shocking conclusion to this neighbours dispute.

Do you remember the miners strike in 1984/85? It was the most bitter industrial dispute, ruining friendships, families and communities. The repercussions are still felt today. In this episode of the UK True Crime podcast, I look at the story of 35 year old David Wilkie, a taxi driver in South Wales, and how his job lead to his tragic death one morning in 1984.

The Perfect Family: Episode 173

We see it on Facebook and other social media all the time just how perfect the lives of our friends/family are, don't we.  But of course, it isn't true. We just see what they want us to see and have no reality about what really happens in their lives. Which is why it was so shocking when Paul Crymble from a small village in Northern Ireland was murdered in the summer of 2004. He lived a quiet life with his wife and children and had no ememies - just why was he killed?

Neighbours From Hell: Episode 172

Every town in the UK has some less desirable estates, and Stratford Upon Avon is no different. Beyond the tourists flocking to the place of Shakespeare's birth, life on the Clopton estate was pretty miserable for most. The Erskine family lived on the estate and were a hard-working, kind and respectful family. But they soon become a target of abuse for some of their less savoury neighbours. And on 3 January 1996, events took a terrible turn....
