And this is the case in the story today from Stowmarket, near Ipswich in the east of England. But as the family tried to come to terms with what had happened, they were rocked again by the most shocking events....

Who do you trust in life - who do you really trust? If you are a small business you have to trust your bank which funds you as you grow.

So how many times have you been on public transport and somebody is behaving badly near you? Has it made you anxious, concerned or terrified?

Last week, we looked at the murder of 26 year old Jong-Ok Shin, who was walking home from a Bournemouth nightclub and just metres from the door of her home when she was attacked and she tragically died from her injuries. There were no witnesses to this crime. Shortly afterwards, local drug addict Omar Benguit was arrested and convicted of murder and over 20 years later he is still in prison. But was he guilty of this dreadful crime? He says no and many believe his conviction to be unsafe. But if Benguit wasn't responsible just who was - there are a number of suspects.....

From Bad Women: The Blackout Ripper Stalks London’s War-Torn Streets
Here’s a preview of Bad Women: The Blackout Ripper. Over a single week in February 1942, a depraved serial killer stalked London’s dark and WWII bomb-ravaged streets, hunting for victims in the city’s bars and clubs. But the victims of the so-called Blackout Ripper are now all but forgotten. Using new research from police files, court transcripts and exhaustive genealogical studies, season 2 of Hallie Rubenhold’s Bad Women reconstructs the lives of the women The Blackout Ripper brutally attacked and murdered and examines why their deaths were swept from view.

Lust at the Theatre: Episode 304
This week, we head to the north-west of England and a local theatre group. The theatre is a serious business here and the productions put on are of a very high quality, but it is also very sociable. In the episode this week, two couples from the group begin socialising, but then Chris Linaker and Jenny Cupit begin a very passionate 16 month affair, where they explore their sexual boundaries.  But as we have seen so often on the UK True Crime podcast, an affair which is about sex for one party and love for another, often ends badly - and this week, we see a shocking and violent outcome. 1, Please support my sponsor UK True Crime Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at www.BetterHelp.com/TRUECRIME.  2, Buy tickets for my live show in Manchester in October https://www.murdermiletours.com/liveshow.html?fbclid=IwAR3c-Ml3b0N9QKTu1Y7QYKMdBcHwyIMUdPlSyZ3Wo6TU4H737kWlYb7t-TA 3, Please buy my book 'Gone Fishing' about the life and crimes of Angus Sinclair https://mangobooks.co.uk/products/gone-fishing 4, Other referenced sites www.patreon.com/uktruecrime https://www.facebook.com/groups/UKTrueCrime www.uktruecrime.com 4, Sources http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/270492.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/264675.stm https://www.theguardian.com/uk/1999/feb/03/davidward http://www.troubleandstrife.org/articles/issue-39/bad-press/ https://www.warringtonguardian.co.uk/news/5306260.i-wish-to-rebuild-a-life-for-my-children/ https://www.warringtonguardian.co.uk/news/5306260.i-wish-to-rebuild-a-life-for-my-children/ https://www.thefreelibrary.com/INNOCENCE+KILLED+BY+ENVY%3B+Blameless+Kathryn+was+a+victim+of+sordid...-a060423324

The Rolex Killer: Episode 301
It was early on a summers morning in the English Channel, not far from Exeter, when the fishermen pulled up their nets. They were heavy and they were excited by what they may have caught. They found themselves looking at the fully clothed body of a middle-aged man and immediately called the police. The difficulty the police experienced was that there was no ID on the man at all, just an expensive rolex watch on his wrist. Would this help them find the man and just what happened to him?

Do you remember what it was like to be 18? All those hopes and dreams that lay ahead of you?

Live Interview With Author Jason Wilson at CrimeCon London
At CrimeCon London last weekend, I had the pleasure of interviewing author Jason Wilson about his excellent new book, 'The Old Man And Me'. In front of a live audience, we chatted about why he wrote his book about growing up and living with his gangster father. The book is no nonsense and talks about the reality of crime, not the glamourised versions you hear about elsewhere, and in this interview Jason was very open about his life. I hope you enjoy and there is link to the book below. Buy your copy here:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Old-Man-thrilling-biography-understand/dp/1913406881
