    A Glasgow Double Murder: Episode 328

    A Glasgow Double Murder: Episode 328

    This week, the UK True Crime podcast is from Cambuslang, about 6 miles southeast of the centre of Glasgow, as I look at a terrifying double murder.

    The body of 36 year-old taxi driver Cathy McChord was found with her body crammed into the boot of the car, with the meter still running. Cathy’s cigarette lighter, inhaler and car keys placed in a straight-line. Suggesting a ritualistic element to the crime.

    Two months after Cathy’s murder another body was found when 48 year-old Elizabeth Walton was found in the grounds of her daughter’s school. After declining a lift home, Elizabeth was attacked and then strangled as she walked back home from an evening out. When police found Elizabeth’s body they found ritualistic and symbolic acts had taken place, similar to those of Cathy.

    The police knew they were searching for a double killer.....

    Surgeon Anthony McGrath had developed a passion for antiques from his surgeon father, growing up in a beautiful Georgian Stately Home in County Meath.

    But the investigation wasn't quite as straightforward as Anthony had expected....

    Live Interview with David Swindle: Bonus Episode

    Live Interview with David Swindle: Bonus Episode

    On Sunday I watched the excellent live show, The Makings of a Murderer, with ex-detective David Swindle. This show is touring for the next year and will be at a theatre near you soon - I highly recommend buying a ticket and finding out much more about some of the investigations in which David has personally been involved, as well as other high-profile cases.

    After the show. David kindly agreed to chat with me about his past career and what he is currently doing, especially with helping the families of victims of crime abroad.

    David spent over 30 years in the police service, mainly in the CID.  His work as Senior Investigating Officer (SIO) saw him managing high profile and challenging UK cross border investigations including the Glasgow Airport Terrorist Investigation and the murder of Polish student Angelika Kluk in Glasgow. He also formed Operation Anagram to investigate serial killer Peter Tobin’s involvement in other crimes.
