True Detective  |  True Detective February 2021  


In August 2008 bankrupt millionaire Christopher Foster shot dead his wife and daughter, turned his mansion home into an inferno and killed himself. The events at the well-to-do village of Maesbrook, Shropshire, shocked the nation. However, by 2010 many wondered whether the tragedy of this self-made family man choosing to destroy everything had started something of a trend. In this issue, “Crimes That Made The Headlines – Wife And Daughter Die In Shropshire Tragedy” features three post-Foster cases from a similar geographic area that bear remarkably similar traits, beginning with an almost identical tragedy in Oswestry in 2010.

In “America’s Most Evil – Lethal Gift To Wipe Out His In-Laws”, we look at the shocking case of mass-killer Danny Crump. His family were surprised when Crump was charged with six counts of murder after an explosion that destroyed a family home in a middle-class suburb of Olathe, Kansas. Investigators were looking for a motive. Crump had lost a custody battle over his son – and his bitterness had boiled over into murder.

And we visit County Armagh for a fascinating case – Murder At The Wedding – featuring a killer whose eventful life didn’t end with his conviction.


Highlights this issue include:

* “I’m Going To Kill My Folks”

* Crimes That Made The Headlines: Wife And Daughter Die In Shropshire Tragedy

* America’s Most Evil: Lethal Gift To Wipe Out His In-Laws

* Questions & Answers: Dominoes And Death At The Hour Glass

* Hanged In Australia: “We’ve Both Been Shot”

* Wandsworth’s Days Of Hanging, Part 5

* Murder At The Wedding

* Murder At The President’s Ball

* Hammer-Killer Freed “To Satisfy His Sexual Needs”

* Execution USA
