S8 Ep22: The 40 Year Secret – Part 2

Play episode

Concluding the tale begun last time around on The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, which dealt with the horrific rape and murder of a young girl on a winter’s night back in the North Wales town of Flint, in January 1976. It was a fast moving investigation back at the time, which quickly led to an arrest, charges, and ultimately, imprisonment. 

And that was it – or so it was thought. But four decades later, the case was heard once again before a court – because, had police caught the right killer at the time? Or, had the real killer long been roaming free?

The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, involving children, involving injury detail and descriptions of a sexual nature, that some listeners may find disturbing and or distressing, so discretion is advised whilst listening.
