Issue Cover

True Detective  |  Apr-18  


Many murders are never solved; others very quickly so. Diligent police work often goes a long way in cracking the puzzle. Incredibly, in the case of Texan teacher Irene Garza, more than five decades would pass by before her suspected killer found himself before a jury – surely something of a record in the annals of crime history? Irene, a former beauty queen, had gone to confession on Saturday, April 16th, 1960 – and never made it home again. Days later her strangled and battered body was recovered from a canal, several miles from the Sacred Heart Church in McAllen…

In this issue’s “Hanged In Australia” story we meet Frances Knorr, a tough Londoner – described by 1890s police as having “very loose habits, immoral character” – who became a notorious baby farmer.

Other highlights of this issue:

* Crimes That Made The Headlines: Surrey Child-Killer Caught After 33 Years
* New Series – River Of Death: Was Incest The Cause Of Greenwich Baby-Killing?
* America’s Most Evil: Confessions of A Serial Killer
* Judge Told Nellie: “The Death Penalty Is Mandatory”
* Ireland’s Heartbreaking “Babes In The River” Case
* 120 Were Hanged At Pentonville – Part Five
* Execution USA
