PLEASE LISTEN TO ‘SEASON 5 - EPISODE 21’ FOR PART ONE OF THIS TWO-PART CASE. Throughout spring 1993, five men were murdered in London at the hands of the same killer. He had met them all in The Coleherne, a bar in Earl's Court. The murderer went back to the victims’ homes and strangled them while they were tied up. The killings were not initially linked by Scotland Yard. However, after the man responsible had called the police explaining that he wanted to be a serial killer, the metropolitan police went public with the information. A single fingerprint and a poorly recorded phone conversation were the only pieces of evidence detectives had until CCTV captured one of the victims making his final journey home in the company of a man that was likely the last person to see him alive. Following an appeal, surprisingly, that man came forward, but confidently denied he was the murderer. He was, however, unaware the police had found his fingerprint at one of the scenes, and the man was subsequently charged with multiple counts of murder. Following a court hearing, he eventually confessed to the string of killings. So why had Colin Ireland made it his new year's resolution to be a serial killer?… (Part 2 of 2).*** LISTENER CAUTION IS ADVISED *** Become a ‘Patreon Producer’ and get exclusive access to Season 1, early ad-free access to episodes, and your name in the podcasts credits.
