Description

Murderers, Psychopaths, and Paedophiles - Their mention strikes dread and disgust into the heart of a nation, and the crimes committed by such individuals are of a nature more horrendous than any other. Their hideous acts of violence and abuse are unimaginably cruel, and the more disturbed and desperate we become for the killers to be brought to justice.Yet the extremely calculated nature of the crimes and their perpetrators means that evidence is often so thin on the ground that many cases end up being often left 'open' with little hope that more evidence will come to light, leaving families in utter devastation and the public in fear of its safety. However, thanks to rapidly developing advances in forensic techniques, especially in the fields of psychological, psychic and DNA profiling, more and more previously closed cases are being re-examined and solved many years after the crimes were committed."Killer Catchers" is the incredible collection of such astonishing true stories. The murders in this book will chill you to the bone, but the techniques used to solve them will astound and reassure you in equal measure. The stories in this book are fascinating and varied but they all have one thing in common: each murderer thought they would get away with their horrific crime, and almost nearly did...But now there is no such thing as the perfect murder.
