The House Brick

The House Brick

By What's the Story? Sounds


Season One of Smoking Gun is only available on The Missing +

Killers and criminals can be identified in many different ways. In this episode, we find out how a regular house brick carried the evidence which would prove a man's guilt in a complex murder enquiry. Narrated by Romola Garai, and with expert insight from forensic specialist Tracy Alexander, we tell the story of a long-running murder case, a desperate hunt for clues, and the sequence of events that led to a killer being identified from the clues contained on a brick.
