    Kate Webster and the Murder of Julia Thomas - Servitude and Dismemberment

    A career criminal headed for a life of dodging between petty thievery, prison and the street was never going to have a happy ending. Ending in murder, Kate Webster’s life was a sad existence which not only saw her take the life of another but also ended up being hanged for her crime. 
    Over a 100 years later, kate’s victim, Julia Thomas’ skull was found in an excavation for an extension. Igniting a forgotten case and eventually bringing the horror of the events at 2 mayfield cottages to a close. 


    This time on Macabre London, we’re uncovering the story of Kate Webster and the murder of Julia Martha Thomas.

    Lord Lucan and the murder of Sandra Rivett - Murder, Mutilation and Mystery - PART 2

    Lord Lucan and the murder of Sandra Rivett - Murder, Mutilation and Mystery - PART 2

    A well to do family living a stone’s throw from Buckingham palace might not be your first thought for a grisly murder mystery, an assault and a missing persons case. From the outside they were the picture perfect portrait of family life but behind closed doors cracks were starting to show and before long a case so intriguing would emerge that it beguiled the whole world and still does to this day. But will the murderer ever be found?


    This time on Macabre London, we uncover the murder of Sandra Rivett, the attempted murder of Veronica Lucan and the disappearance of Lord Lucan.
