Murder and Witchcraft | Charles Walton Murder Part 2

Ominous Origins

Part two, and the conclusion to the Charles Walton murder case is finally here! I mean, we can't really call it a true conclusion as it's an unsolved case. BUT, it marks the end of our look into it anyway. So what do we have this week? Well, we look at some suspects, and the potential witchcraft involved. Yeah, that caught your attention, didn't it? While there was ever really only one suspect in Alfred Potter, he was never charged despite being caught red handed in several lies, misdirections, and peculiar behavior. However, there was never any substantial evidence or motive linking him to the crime, and so he was never charged for it. But why was he the main suspect? Well, there are many, many reasons including, but not limited to: he was the last person to see Walton alive, he was his employer, they may have had financial disputes, and many more.  But what of the witchcraft? Well, interestingly enough, there's a weird, convoluted family tree that's going on that may link Walton to a murder roughly 75 years prior, and Walton shares the name of a local folklore character that has to do with a phantom dog. But, as always, if you want to know more, you'll just have to listen.

Tools As Weapons: The Case of Charles Walton - Part 1

Ominous Origins

After a few episodes away from the usual stuff, we're back this week with yet another true crime mystery! Like most of the interesting cases out there, this one takes place in the past, in 1945 to be exact and involves an Englishman by the name of Charles Walton. The thing that makes this case interesting is that some believe it to have some witchcraft involved. While we don't explore that aspect in this episode, it will show up next week. However, the details of this case are also quite gruesome, in fact, it seems like it's been ripped from a horror movie. The story goes that Walton, a 75 year old man, was working on a farm he'd worked at for the better part of a year when his niece discovered he hadn't come home that evening. He wasn't a party animal, and had very few friends, so him going out seemed unlikely. A small search party formed, and eventually his body was found in the field he'd last been seen working in. It was a devastating affair, especially for his niece, naturally. It was such a big case for the area that Scotland Yard got involved and a number of suspects began to prop up. But, for all the gory details, you'll just have to listen to the whole episode.

The Trail Went Cold – Episode 247 – Charles Walton

The Trail Went Cold

February 14, 1945. Lower Quinton, England. 74-year old farm labourer Charles Walton leaves his home in order to spending the day slashing hedges on the slopes of Meon Hill. Later that evening, Charles’ body is discovered next to the hedgerow and he has been beaten with his walking stick, had his throat slashed with a billhook, and been stabbed with a pitchfork. While the original investigation turns up a potential suspect, there is not enough evidence to implicate him, but as the years go on, Charles’ death becomes surrounded with stories involving witchcraft and the occult. Was Charles Walton’s murder some sort of ritualistic killing? If not, what could the actual motive have been? On this month’s first Halloween-themed episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we explore an infamous unsolved cold case from the United Kingdom which has been clouded by sensationalistic urban legends.
