True Detective  |  True Detective October 2019  


By chance this month’s True Detective spotlights not one but two notable cases that took place on the Channel Island of Jersey. The first concerns the man they came to call “The Beast Of Jersey.” His was a reign of terror that began as far back as 1957 and continued into the 1970s, in the course of which he attacked and raped a succession of victims who will never forget his cruelty – or the bizarre mask he used to terrorise them. Read “Crimes That Made The Headlines – Behind The Mask Of The Beast Of Jersey” for the full story.

And then you may wish to read about the events that led up to the final hanging on the island – 60 years ago this month. Jersey law at the time provided safeguards requiring a unanimous vote of 24 jurors before a death penalty could be handed down – but in this case the 24 jurors had no hesitation...

Another long-term operator is Felix Vail, recently identified as “America’s Oldest Serial Killer.” He is now revealed to have killed three partners in the period from 1962 to 1984, and he may yet have further crimes to come to light. See this issue for a full report.


Highlights this issue include:

* Holly Was Snatched, Raped And Murdered – In Broad Daylight
* Crimes That Made The Headlines: Behind The Mask Of The Beast Of Jersey
* America’s Most Evil: The Man Who Kept Losing His Wives
* Hanged In Australia: Schoolbell Tolled For Pupil’s Murder
* How This Boy Became The Last Man To Hang
* Under The Spotlight: Return Of Madame La Guillotine
* Horrific Killing That Put Two Women In Solitary
* Hanged At Liverpool – Part 10
* Execution USA
* Questions & Answers: Bristol’s Enduring Mystery Murder Of Miss O’Leary
