Issue Cover

True Detective  |  True Detective June 2019  


Maria Martenlived a tragically short life, but in death the Suffolk peasant girl became famous across the land, murdered by her lover William Corder in the Red Barn in Polstead. The case turned the village of Polstead into a popular tourist destination for years afterwards, until even the gravestone of the victim had been chipped away by souvenir hunters. In this month’s Questions & Answers – “Murder In The Red Barn” - we bring you a riveting, bumper account of the case. Don’t miss it.

More 19th-century killers feature in part six of Hanged At Liverpool, including the deadly Irish sisters Catherine Flanagan and Margaret Higgins. Like William Corder decades earlier, these twisted siblings became infamous in their day. Poisoning for profit was a popular money-making scam and the cruel pair proved themselves adept at it until the wheels of justice finally caught up with them.

Dorset has had its share of memorable murders over the years but none, perhaps, as oddly savage as that committed by obsessive killer Danilo Restivo. In Crimes That Made The Headlines – “Bournemouth Horror Of The Hair Fetish Psycho”, in this issue, we look back on the deadly events in the town and in Restivo’s native Italy that will surely keep him under lock and key for the rest of his life. Two victims – Heather Barnett and Elisa Claps – died at Restivo’s hands. But, as we ask in our account, were there more victims?


Highlights this issue include:

* Why Denise Married Her Husband’s Killer

* Crimes That Made The Headlines: Bournemouth Horror Of The Hair Fetish Psycho

* America’s Most Evil: The “God” On Death Row

* Hanged In Australia: “My Missus Has Killed Herself – While We Were In Bed”

* Questions & Answers: Murder In The Red Barn

* Fatal Return To The Emerald Isle

* Hanged At Liverpool – Part 6

* Torture, Murder, Pepperoni And Mozzarella

* Execution USA
