Serial killer Theodore Johnson was released early to murder third lover, Angela Best

A garage worker who was freed to murder despite having thrown his wife to her death from a balcony before strangling another partner has become Britain’s latest serial killer.

Theodore Johnson, 64, faces life in prison after admitting his third killing yesterday, having served less than seven years in total for the killing of two previous partners.

Johnson beat his former partner, Angela Best, 51, over the head six times with a clawhammer and strangled her with a dressing gown cord in Dartmouth Park, north London, in December 2016.

He had previously been convicted of manslaughter twice — once for throwing his wife to her death from a balcony in 1981, and again in 1993 for strangling his former girlfriend with a belt. Johnson was released…

The Hessle Road serial killer released from prison to murder again

It is a tale which can scarcely be believed.

A serial killer based in Hull who was released from prison after every one of his murders – but just went on to kill again.

The story sounds more like one you’d come across in a book, or in a Hollywood film.

But William Burkitt’s killings were very much based in reality – and haunted Hessle Road for decades.

Here, local historian Mike Covell talks to David Spereall through the life of William Burkitt – including his hitherto unknown background.

Early life and his first victim

William Burkitt, who went on to become one of the most feared names in Hull, was born to his mother, Mary Ann, and his father, William Sr, in Hessle Road in 1887.

After his father’s tragic death when William was still a teenager, the youngster devoted his life to the seas and worked on a number of Hull-based trawlers.

There were no

Movie made in Kansas about serial killer family released on DVD

A movie that was made in Kansas and shown at last year’s Tallgrass Film Festival was released on DVD, digital and on demand this week.

“Bender” is a thriller about a real-life Kansas family, the Benders, America’s first serial-killing family (what a title to proclaim). They became known as the “Bloody Benders,” living in Labette County during the 1870s.

In the film, when people start to mysteriously vanish on the plains, a troubled doctor goes searching for answers and stumbles upon the Benders, who have an unnatural (to say the least) way of living off the land.

When the doctor also disappears, local townspeople sense that the Benders may be farming more than wheat, and a sheriff investigates.

Police interview of suspected serial killer Bob Evans released

A national child advocacy group has released video clips of a police interview with the man suspected of killing five people in two unsolved New Hampshire cold cases.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children compiled the 4 minute, 20 second video, which shows a man, known locally as Robert “Bob” Evans, being interviewed by California police. Authorities suspect Evans had other victims between New Hampshire and California, where he was eventually convicted of murder.

The video shows an older man – he’s balding and his eyeglasses sit propped on top of his head – in a small interrogation room. Authorities interviewed Evans in 2002 as part of their investigation into the murder of his wife, Eunsoon Jun.

Evans was later convicted of killing Jun, who was found dismembered in the couple’s basement. Records show he died from natural causes in December 2010 in a California prison, where he was serving 15 years to life for the crime.

SC Serial Killer Describes His 7 Murders in Newly-Released Interrogation Video: ‘Like a Video Game’

Almost immediately after she was discovered chained in a storage container in South Carolina — where she had been held captive for more than two monthsKala Brown began telling investigators what happened to her.

“Todd Kohlhepp shot [Brown’s boyfriend] Charlie Carver three times in the chest, wrapped him in a blue tarp, put him in the bucket of the tractor, locked me down here. I never seen [Carver] again,” Brown told authorities on Nov. 3, as they freed her from the container on Kohlhepp’s approximately 100-acre property in Woodruff, South Carolina.
