    Episode Fifty One, The killer dentist (Lesley and Trevor) part 2

    This is the second part of a two-parter. If you haven't listened to part one, I'd recommend heading back to episode 50 and starting there.

The joint suicide pact between a broken hearted husband, and a depressed, devestated wife, would be revealed to be an unbelievable series of events, that started with an affair, and ended with a double murder.

    Episode Fifty, The killer dentist (Lesley and Trevor)

    This is the first part of a 2 parter on The Killer Dentist. The second part is available to download immediately.

     

    After she’d been in the bath for a little while, Colin came in and said he wanted to use the tape recorder. He lifted it up, and as he did so, the cable came out and somehow landed on Lesley’s arm, in the bath. This was attached to the main electricity supply and meant that as it touched her arm, and the water, it gave her an electric shock. Thankfully, the cord had then fallen straight onto the floor, so she was able to get up and out to safety. She didn’t really know how the cord had ended up in the bath, and afterwards, Colin asked her not to tell anyone. To promise she wouldn’t say anything. Lesley thought it was odd that he’d made her promise not to tell anyone, so she called 3 of her friends over the next couple of days, saying 'I’m telling you this in case anything happens to me’

    Episode Forty Nine, Bessie Sheppard

    Episode Forty Nine, Bessie Sheppard

    As Bessie walked along the road, the murderer raised the stake up to shoulder height and brought it down with his full force on her head. The attacker then brought the 4 foot long sharpened fence stake down on her head again….. and again….. and again. The murderer then dragged her body into the ditch at the side of the road so it wouldn’t be seen by passers by.

    Benjamin pulled open the brown paper bag and threw the nylon chords onto the floor. One by one, the customers hands were tied behind them. Then their feet.

    Episode Forty Seven, Luby’s restaurant massacre

    Episode Forty Seven, Luby’s restaurant massacre

    One man had managed to jump out of the way of the initial blast of glass and pickup truck that had come hurtling towards him.

    He ran towards the drivers side door of the pick up truck.

    He could see the window was open, or smashed open... either way, it didn’t matter. As long as the window was open, he’d be able to asses the state of the driver, and potentially help them out to safety. 

    As he approached the window, he let out a slight sigh of relief when he saw an arm move. The driver was alive. 

    He then felt fear flood his entire body as he came face to face with the barrel of a semi-automatic gun.

    Episode Forty Six, The Classroom Murder (Ann Maguire)

    Episode Forty Six, The Classroom Murder (Ann Maguire)

    On Christmas eve, William exchanged a facebook message with a friend where he he spoke of ‘brutally killing’ Mrs Maguire and spending the rest of his life in jail so he didn’t have to worry about life or money. Not that he was taken seriously. He also started contacting friends offering to “kill Maguire for a tenner".

     

    Then his facebook profile picture changed. Instead of his image, there was now an image of the grim reaper.

    A harsh reflection of what was to come…

     

    With the hugest thanks to our guest writer for this final episode before he takes a bit of a well deserved break !
