Episode Thirty One, The 7/7 London bombings Part 1
This is the first part of a two part series on The 7/7 London Bombings.
Many thanks to our guest writer for this episode. He came to me with this episode in mind, because he was there.
It is now 7.22am and the four bombers walk towards Luton Town Station, and are caught on CCTV as they inconspicuously pass through the platform barriers and wait on the platform for their train, the 7.24.
They have with them their rucksacks packed with explosives and three day return tickets. Are they somehow planning to plant the explosives and return home later? Or are the return tickets simply so as not to attract attention to themselves?
The train is delayed but eventually it arrives and the men are seen smiling, laughing and generally seem very relaxed as they board it.

Joi was filming the motorcycle stunt for Deadpool 2 in Vancouver Canada. The cameras track her riding out of the open doors of a building, across a concrete pad and down a ramp, before coming to a stop. After a number of successful rehearsal takes, Joi rode the start of the stunt correctly and as planned, before continuing to drive down a second ramp. It's here that she struck the curb, and was then thrown towards, and actually went through, a glass window of a nearby building...

Episode Twenty Nine, The Dartmouth College Murders
Half and Susanne Zantop
Half arranged the wooden chair to face inwards, and with a smile, asked how he could help. After a few minutes of chatting, Half turned to get a phone number from his desk.
The person in front of Half waited patiently for him to turn, and at that very moment, silently opened the rucksack sitting on the floor, and pulled out a large, SOG SEAL knife.

Episode Twenty Eight, The Moorgate Train Disaster
At the height of rush hour on the morning of the 28th of February 1975, 300 passengers sat, stood and leant on all areas of the packed tube heading to it's final stop at Moorgate station.
Passengers and the guard towards the rear of the train realised the train wasn't slowing and was in fact accelerating. They began to panic, but had just seconds before darkness engulfed the 6 carriages and the piercing noise of the crash, metal and glass breaking took over. This was followed by deafening silence. Shock. Quiet. And then an ear piercing scream, following by shouting, crying, and smoke.
We are thrilled to have welcomed a guest writer on board to contribute to our episodes as REDRUM expands, so that we can continue to release episodes bi-weekly. With many thanks to our anonymous guest writer for writing this episode!

Episode Twenty Six, Robert Samuels
After there was still no answer at the door, Mary decided to enter the house, and as she did, she noticed it to be eerily quiet. As she got further into the hallway, she noticed a dark figure lying on the floor, and as she got closer, she noticed that Robert was lying facedown on the floor, and his head was caved in. The surrounding walls and carpets were covered with blood.
