Rank #1: Michaela Hague - 2001

Podcast cover
Read more
At 7pm on November 5th, 2001, mother of one, Michaela Hague climbed into a Blue Ford Sierra in Bower Street, Sheffield. The driver was a white male, clean shaven and wearing a wedding ring. Bonfire night was another working night for Michaela. Prostitution had become her line of trade to make ends meet.

The next time this delicately featured young woman with almond shaped eyes, dark brown hair and an impish grin would be seen, she was semi-conscious and bleeding heavily from nineteen stab wounds to her neck and back. Discovered by a friend in the Spittalfields area of Sheffield, Michaela was able to give a brief description of her attacker to the first policeman on the scene, PC Twigg, who wrote the description on the palm of his hand.

Rank #5: Linda Cook - 1986

Podcast cover
Read more
Linda left the house where she was living at about 11.30pm on 8 December, to visit a friend in Sultan Road, Portsmouth. It must have only been a brief visit as she was reported as leaving that address at shortly after midnight on the 9th to make her way back South to Linda Gray’s house in Victoria Road North. Roughly twenty or so minutes’ walk along suburban and reasonably well-lit streets.
At some time between half past twelve and one o’clock in the morning, Linda Cook was viciously raped, strangled and stamped on. The ferocity of the attack is extremely distressing. Linda had been so violently stamped on that it crushed her larynx, broke her jaw and caused her spine to fracture. The perpetrator had used such force that he left the impression of his shoe on her skin, leading this to be dubbed by the sensationalist press of the time as, somewhat distastefully, The Cinderella Murder.

1994 also witnessed the passing of the legendary formula one racing driver, Ayrton Senna on lap 6 of the San Marino Grand Prix, when he lost control of his car as he entered the Tamburello corner at 190mph and hit a wall. Tony Blair became the leader of the Labour Party, the Provisional IRA declared a ceasefire, trading was allowed on a Sunday for the first time and in a rather unremarkable working-class housing estate on the outskirts of Oxford, thirty-three years old biochemist with a post-doctoral research role at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, was murdered with a shotgun blast through the window of his kitchen at around half-past four on Saturday 10th December.

Rank #7: Janet Brown 1995

Podcast cover
Read more
At fifty-one, Janet Brown was the model of educated rural success. Her three children, Zara, Benedict and Roxanne, were either living away from home, away at university, or as in the case of the youngest, Roxanne, studying for A-levels and a place at university. Her husband, Grahaem Brown, was a doctor who worked for pharmaceutical companies. His work took him away from home a great deal, and at the time in question, Dr Brown was in Switzerland, while Janet herself worked as a research nurse at Oxford University.

Rank #8: The Lancashire Ripper Pt1

Podcast cover
Read more
Coffee tables across the country were being graced by a book that would spark a populist wave of renewed interest in the sciences. Famously including only one equation, Einstein's E=MC2 the author, the late great Dr Stephen Hawking explores the physics behind the cosmos and the then current ideas about the universe's beginning. Using easily accessible charts, illustrations and language, the redoubtable Doctor unlocks the story of how the universe came to be and how even with the vast leaps in technology and ability, we are still faced with mysteries in outer reaches of space, time and spacetime.
At the North Western end of the M6 motorway in the West Midlands, another and very different mystery was beginning to unfold.

Rank #9: Adam - 2001

Podcast cover
Read more
At 4pm on the afternoon of Friday 21st September, Adam Minter was crossing the iconic Tower Bridge in London, when he spotted an object floating in the Thames. At first Mr Minter believed it to be either a stained barrel or manikin, but as the object came closer to the bridge, he was able to see that the object was the body of a young child. Mr Minter could also tell that the body had been mutilated. When the Police retrieved the body from the water, it became apparent that the child was a young boy dressed only in orange shorts. His head, arms and legs had been removed, his body washed and then placed into the Thames. As there was absolutely no way of immediately identifying the poor child, Detectives named him Adam. His murder remains unsolved and is one of the most disturbing murders ever committed in the UK.

Rank #10: Deborah Linsley - 1988

Podcast cover
Read more
Life on the mainland was, however, pretty normal for most people. For twenty-six-year-old Deborah Linsley it was the day she would return to her home in Edinburgh following a few days visiting her family in friends in Bromley, South East London, following a training course in London. Deborah was going to be her brother's bridesmaid in two weeks-time and the trip was a welcomed break that allowed her to catch-up with the wedding plans. At the time the train was most sensible and economic way to travel around the UK, so her brother took her to Petts Wood train station some twenty-minuets away so that she could catch the Orpington to London Victoria train and then onwards to Scotland.
