True Detective  |  True Detective May 2019  


Angus Sinclair’s death in March 2019 left few mourning his passing. Some would say he’s cheated justice, too. The Scottish serial killer and sex offender had been locked up since the early 80s for a catalogue of heinous offences, including, since 2014, the notorious World’s End pub murders of 1977. Read the full story in this issue.

US serial killer and necrophile Bernard Giles brought misery to Florida in the 1970s when he murdered at least five girls and women. His case recently came to greater prominence when he met Piers Morgan for ITV’s “Confessions Of A Serial Killer”. Our feature, “Murdering Young Women Was My Life’s Passion,” includes a full account of the case, and a resume of Morgan’s encounter. Should the broadcaster have probed further into the remorseless killer’s criminal career in a bid to elicit further admissions? Read our report and decide for yourself.

Legendary Scotland Yard investigator Robert Fabian had a mighty challenge on his hands to crack a curious war-time murder. Read his issue’s “Had Fabian Found The Killer? Warwickshire’s Ghastly Witchcraft Murder” to find out why.


Highlights of this issue include:

* Killing His Wife Was Part Of His Retirement Plan
* Crimes That Made The Headlines: How Many Victims For The “World’s End” Monster?
* First Blood At Mountjoy – How The Hangings Began
* America’s Most Evil: “Murdering Young Women Was My Life’s Passion”
* Hanged At Liverpool – Part 5
* Hanged In Australia: The Boy New South Wales Was Determined To Hang
* Horror In The Playground
* Questions & Answers 1: Mistress Boiled Up Like Bacon
* Execution USA
* Questions & Answers 2: Had Fabian Found The Killer?
