    Hawarden: The Murder of Madallin Jones

    Hawarden: The Murder of Madallin Jones

    It was late on a Sunday night in January, 1993. A couple was driving around a quiet bend of the A550 by Tinkers Dale Wood in North Wales when they noticed a red Mini Metro which had crashed over a small embankment hitting a tree. The side window and windscreen were shattered, the driver’s door was ajar and the vehicle was empty. It looked like the driver had hit the windscreen on impact and had walked away— possibly to go get help.
    They called 999 and waited for help…

    West Rainton: The Murder of George Button

    West Rainton: The Murder of George Button

    Winding north out of West Rainton, Marks Lane is a secluded country road used by dog walkers who want to avoid the busier streets of the town. Always unlit, on this particular night Mark’s Lane was only lit up as a vehicle passed. Just after 7.30pm, a passenger in a car noticed something on the verge.
    Lying in a pool of blood, a man lay on the side, appearing to have suffered serious head injuries after what looked like a hit and run. When the ambulance arrived, he was found to be alive - but barely...

    Inverinate: The Murder of Helen Fiona Torbet

    Inverinate: The Murder of Helen Fiona Torbet

    On the north shore of Loch Duich, just outside the small village of Inverinate, sits a small B&B called The Grianan Guest House. It’s beautifully unassuming, with the most affecting views of the loch onto the rugged Ratagan Pass across the water. 
    Behind the guesthouse, hills roll for miles. It’s a walker’s dream, and was a favourite spot for Scottish hill walker, Helen Fiona Torbet. She had walked the area dozens of times… Only this time (in the summer of 1993) she didn't return.

    Chobham: The Murder of Tina Baker

    Chobham: The Murder of Tina Baker

    As the year 2000 approached, two strangers met through a local Surrey ‘Lonely Hearts’ advertisement.
    Within two years, Tina and Martin Baker were married, and Tina’s lifelong dream of owning her own farm was realised when they bought Brookfield Farm just outside the village of Chobham in Surrey’s northwest corner…
    Tina and Martin Baker’s relationship, however, was short lived and within two years of their marriage, when Tina was 41, and Martin, 50, she left him. Tina had attempted to leave once before and returned, but this time it was for good. Towards the end of that July alarm bells started to ring when those close to Tina hadn’t seen her for two weeks. And Martin, not having any answers as to where she might be, went to the local Surrey police to report her missing.

    Blackpool: The Murder of Catherine (Kitty) Weaver & Gabrielle Morris

    Blackpool: The Murder of Catherine (Kitty) Weaver & Gabrielle Morris

    It was around five in the morning on January 31st, 1978, when a scream echoed through the rooms of ‘The Nook Rest Home’ on Blackpool’s South Shore. 
    A scream or a cry in the night wasn’t uncommon at The Nook, which catered for the elderly, the sick, and older people with physical disabilities. And so in the early hours when a fellow resident heard it, they assumed someone was having a nightmare. As morning broke, residents and care-workers discovered one of their newer residents on the kitchen floor— covered in blood, murdered after someone had broken in through the window.

    Selsdon: The Murder of Tessa Howden

    Selsdon: The Murder of Tessa Howden

    On January 10, 1986, David Howden woke around 8am and went downstairs to make some tea. 
    Tessa was usually the first out of bed. She had started a job at the local 'Croydon Advertiser' in promotions, so when David noticed she wasn't up, he went upstairs to check on her. He saw she wasn't in bed, but it was dark. So he made his way downstairs, but at the bottom, David realised something wasn't right, before going back up again. Just inside her room, he saw her covers piled on the floor, and as he pulled them back, he found Tessa's body on the floor with something wrapped around her neck, covered in blood.

Murder TOWN

Can I just say NORTH WALES and SOUTH WALES are not towns!!! What have you got against naming Welsh towns?
Apart from that once you get used to his voice, all the podcasts done by this fella are great. Top work! 👍

Ellaflo911 ,

What is that voice?

Not sure why the voice changed to a robot in the 2022 series but it’s unlistenable

Fluer99 ,

The voice !

Is this computer generated narration ?
Weird and couldn’t listen - was disappointed.
