    Gary Allen | The Murders of Samantha Class and Alena Grlakova

    Gary Allen | The Murders of Samantha Class and Alena Grlakova

    In the eighth episode of British Murders Season 6, I tell the story of Gary Allen.

    In late 1997, Gary murdered 29-year-old mum-of-three Samantha Class in Hull, East Yorkshire. He was acquitted of her murder in early 2000.

    Just after Christmas 2018, Gary killed once more. This time, he murdered 38-year-old mum-of-four Alena Grlakova in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

    His trial for both murders began in 2021. The jury found Gary Allen guilty of both murders, and the Judge handed him a life sentence with a minimum term of 37 years.

    INTERVIEW | Steven Keogh | Former Scotland Yard Detective Inspector

    In this episode of British Murders, I welcome Steven Keogh to the show.⁣

    Former Detective Inspector Steven Keogh joined the Metropolitan Police in 1991, spending most of his 30-year career as a detective.

    He joined Scotland Yard's elite Anti-Terrorist Branch in 2002, where he spent three years investigating terrorism.

    In 2005 he received a commendation from the then Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, Sir Ian Blair, for his work in the aftermath of the London 7/7 Bombings.

    In 2009 he joined Scotland Yard's Murder Investigation Team, where he remained for 12 years, building up a vast knowledge of what it takes to catch killers and bring them to justice.

    After retiring from the police in 2021, Steven created 'Murder Academy', the world's first school dedicated to educating true crime fans on how murders are solved.

    Thomas Montgomery | The Murder of Brian Barrett | Killer British Murder Stories Vol. 5 Feat. Bobbie Holmes

    Thomas Montgomery | The Murder of Brian Barrett | Killer British Murder Stories Vol. 5 Feat. Bobbie Holmes

    In the fifth volume of Killer British Murder Stories, I am told the story of Thomas Montgomery by Bobbie Holmes of Killer Stories Podcast.

    On September 15, 2006, 46-year-old Thomas Montgomery murdered his 22-year-old co-worker Brian Barrett in the car park outside their work.

    The two men were involved in an online love triangle story you must hear to believe.

    Thomas was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder.

    The media refer to this case as the 'Talhotblond' murder, and Courtney Cox later directed a TV movie adaptation of the story.

    This episode is the second of two collaborations Bobbie and I recently recorded. To hear me tell the story of David Fuller, please check out Killer Stories.

    Glyn Dix | The Murders of Pia Overbury and Hazel Dix

    Glyn Dix | The Murders of Pia Overbury and Hazel Dix

    In the sixth episode of British Murders Season 6, I tell the story of Glyn Dix.

    On October 2, 1979, Glyn Dix murdered his landlady Pia Overbury in cold blood, a crime for which he received a life sentence in prison.

    Whilst serving his sentence, he met a woman named Hazel, the mother of a fellow inmate, and they married in 1999.

    Despite his life sentence, Glyn was released from prison in 2001.

    By 2004, he had killed again. This time the victim was his wife, Hazel.

    A whole life order soon followed, with Glyn spending the rest of his life at Ashworth Hospital, where he died in 2014.

    David Heiss | The Murder of Matthew Pyke

    David Heiss | The Murder of Matthew Pyke

    In the fifth episode of British Murders Season 6, I tell the story of David Heiss.

    German-born David became obsessed with 21-year-old Nottingham-based student Joanna Witton after the pair met in 2007 through a war gaming website Joanna and her boyfriend, 20-year-old Matthew Pyke, had created.

    Despite being rejected by Joanna, David persisted with his obsession. He even made two unannounced visits to the couple's Nottingham flat after flying to the UK from Germany in the summer of 2008.

    Things grew so heated between the two men that David flew to the UK one more time in September 2008 and brutally murdered Matthew, stabbing him 86 times in the process.

    David was handed a life sentence on May 11, 2009, by The Honourable Mr Justice Keith with a minimum term of 18 years.
