True Detective  |  True Detective July 2019  


Wartime Melbourne, 1942, and the lights were being kept low. Exploiting the murderous opportunities presented by the brownout was proving irresistible for a killer... Read “Hanged In Australia – Melbourne’s Jekyll And Hyde Murders” in this issue for the full story.

In the early 1960s he abducted and raped a Mansfield shop assistant and dumped her body in a canal. For that crime heartless killer Ronald Evans would spend just 11 years behind bars. The authorities no doubt hoped that Evans was a reformed character when he was released on parole in the mid-1970s. But, as this issue’s “Crimes That Made The Headlines: Bingo Night – With A Body In The Boot” shows, he remained a terrible threat to women. Before long a string of horrific sexual assaults began in the Clifton area of Bristol, yet Evans slipped through the net – and he would evade justice for years to come.

She was hoping for a fun holiday, but two days after arriving in Ireland in October 2007, 17-year-old Swiss student Manuela Riedo was dead, having been raped and murdered. Soon police swooped on a suspect – a man who was still being investigated for the rape of a Frenchwoman just weeks earlier... See “Irishman’s Trail Of Rape And Murder” this month for the full story.


Highlights this issue include:

* Bungler Bonnie And Clueless Clyde – Hostages, Hit-Men... And Homicide

* Crimes That Made The Headlines: Bingo Night – With A Body In The Boot

* Questions & Answers: The Santa Claus Murders

* Irishman’s Trail Of Rape And Murder

* Hanged In Australia: Melbourne’s Jekyll And Hyde Murders

* America’s Most Evil: Confessions Of An 11-Time Killer

* Did Church Minister’s Son Strangle Russian Edna?

* Hanged At Liverpool – Part 7

* Under The Spotlight: The Lipstick Murder

* Execution USA
