Portsmouth: The Murder of Linda Cook

On the 9th of December 1986, the half naked body of Linda Cook was found in the grass and scrub of a pathway in Buckland, Portsmouth. She had been repeatedly kicked in the face, head and body after being raped. The only clue the Hampshire Constabulary had to go on was a footprint left on her abdomen, a mens trainer with a unique tread — the word “FLASH” imprinted on the sole. The killer would be dubbed ‘The Beast of Buckland”, and the crime became known as “The Cinderella Murder.” Following each episode of Katherine Kelly's true crime TV series Murdertown, Benjamin Fitton from They Walk Among Us unpicks a new case from each location.

Brighton: Clive Olive & the Sussex Mad Dogs

On a cool evening in April,1973, a cargo ship came into Shoreham Harbour, near Brighton, West Sussex. Sailors watched the murky water below as the ship got closer to port, and in the water, close to the side of the ship, they noticed something bobbing around on the surface. Hauling it out, they found a bloated body, still wearing a jacket and trousers. There were no feet attached, and sticking out from the collar of the jacket— a skull, stripped of all flesh and hair, no eyes, just bone. What they had uncovered that night was the dark side of Brighton, and a small town harbour full of crustaceans that had been feeding on human flesh. Following each episode of Katherine Kelly's brand new TV series Murdertown, Benjamin Fitton from They Walk Among Us unpicks a new case from each location.

Tyne and Wear: The Merry Widow of Windy Nook

In 1955, the small Tyne-On-Wear village of Windy Nook was like many other towns trying to build themselves back up to former glory days. The quarries were long closed, and many of the young residents had moved on to nearby cities like Sunderland or Newcastle in search of work. Mary and John Knowles had lived in their cottage in Windy Nook since they first married. When John died of suspected Tuberculosis at 76, no one thought twice. Mary would find comfort in someone close to her, a man who could fill the void of John, but it would be short lived as he would also die shortly after. Over the following two years, the townsfolk of Windy Nook began suspecting that something wasn’t right. Something wasn’t adding up.

Huddersfield: The Murder of Dorothy Wood

In May 1996, ninety-four year old Dorothy Wood said goodnight to her care worker who had come by to get her ready for bed. Profoundly deaf and crippled by arthritis, Dorothy struggled to complete even the most simplest of household tasks, but she was adamant she would keep her independence. The following morning when family friends arrived to help her out of bed and get her breakfast, they found that someone had broken into the house and Dorothy had been murdered. It would not take long for police to hone in on a suspect, but would they have the right man?
