Issue Cover

True Detective  |  True Detective May 2018  


When teenager Conrad Roy was found dead in his pick-up truck as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, his devastated family knew he’d taken his own life. Months later, however, they came to the conclusion that his sometime girlfriend Michelle Carter had played a criminal role in the tragedy – and the state of Massachusetts agreed. Assisting a suicide was one thing – but conspiring, instructing and then goading Conrad into taking his own life in phone calls and text and social media messages was quite another. Michelle, then aged 17, was indicted for Conrad’s voluntary manslaughter, a homicide charge that carried a maximum 20-year sentence. Did her actions add up to manslaughter, or even murder? Read “Michelle: Was It Murder By Text?” in this issue and make up your own mind.

In Crimes That Made The Headlines – “Must Dickman Be Hanged?”, we go back to the north-east of England in the early 20th century for a controversial murder case that still intrigues. A wage carrier had been killed on the train from Newcastle, but was the man in the dock, John Dickman, actually the killer? Concerns over witness statements and an identity parade would see the whole case sent to the Court of Appeal by the then Home Secretary Winston Churchill. Another project for Oscar-winner Gary Oldman, perhaps?


Highlights of this issue include:

* Michelle: Was It Murder By Text?
* Crimes That Made The Headlines: “Must Dickman Be Hanged?”
* River Of Death: Who Killed The Servant Girl In “Suicide Meadow”?
* Electric Chair For The Anarchists
* The Indestructible Irishman
* America’s Most Evil: 10 Death Sentences For “The Grim Sleeper”
* Hanged In Australia: Rabbit-Hunter On A Murder Rampage
* Execution USA
* 120 Were Hanged At Pentonville – Part Six
