The Fox

Arthur Hutchinson was a violent sexual predator who was on the run from the police for attempted rape in Yorkshire, England. In September 1983, the 42 year escaped Selby prison by jumping through a toilet window. Whilst on the run the career criminal chanced upon a wedding party in Dore South Yorkshire, the hosts were local solicitor 59 year old Basil Laitner and his 55 year old wife, Avril a doctor. In the cover of darkness, Hutchinson crept inside the Laitners’ house, where Basil, Avril and their other two children, Richard 28 and Nicola 18 were sleeping. Hutchinson wanted to satiate his sexual desires and rape Nicola. He launched a vicious knife attack on Richard, Basil and Avril, killing them with multiple stab wounds. Hutchinson then raped Nicola several times before going on the run once again making him one of Britain’s Most Wanted. He was eventually captured after 39 days on the run and in September 1984, he was given 3 life sentences for the murders. We interview former detective Michael Burdis, Former Police Press officer Tom Walton and journalist Alan Whitehouse.

The Truck Stop Killer

When making a routine vehicle check in April 1990 in Arizona, State Trooper Michael Miller could never have prepared himself for what he was about to uncover – a petrified woman chained up and gagged in the back of the truck. The driver was 44-year-old Robert Ben Rhoades. What Michael didn’t realise was that he had just apprehended a serial killer who had been raping, torturing and killing vulnerable women across the country for over a decade. The so-called Truck Stop Killer would take photographs of his victim’s right before he murdered them. In September 1990, over 800 miles away in Illinois a body was found. Dental records identified her as 14-year-old Regina Walters – the same girl pictured in harrowing photographs found in Rhoades’ apartment. He had kept her prisoner in his make-shift torture chamber in his truck before strangling her to death. The police eventually tied him to her murder and in September 1992 Rhoades agreed to a plea bargain to avoid the death penalty and was sentenced to life in prison. It would be another 20 years before he would finally face justice for 2 more murders, which would seal his fate of a life in prison with no chance of parole. We interview former Arizona State Trooper Michael Miller, Former FBI special agent Bob Lee, Detective Michael Sheeley and Texas Ranger Brooks Long and show rare police tapes of the sadistic killer.

The Angel of Mercy

In July 2010, the body of 66-year-old John David Matthews was found in a bathtub full of water and bleach in his flat. At first, officers believed it was suicide. It wasn’t until the post-mortem was conducted that the pieces didn’t add up. It showed that this wasn’t suicide but murder. The victim had been stabbed 18 times. 47-year-old Andrew Dawson, a neighbour, immediately became a suspect. In 1981, when he was just 18 years old, Dawson had brutally murdered 91-year-old Henry Walsh and was sentenced to life in prison where he served 17 years. During their enquiries, Police wanted to ensure that all other neighbours were safe and soon realised that one neighbour hadn’t been seen and 5 days later they forced entry to the flat of 58-year-old Paul Hancock. They found Paul’s body in a bathtub full of water and bleach. Dawson was on the run but had left forensic clues at the scene including an imprint of a written confession and a single pink rose. He’d dubbed himself the ‘Angel of Mercy’. That same day on July 31st 2010 Dawson was finally captured over 200 miles away, where he was found with 7 knives in his backpack. In July 2011, Dawson was sentenced to a whole life tariff. We interview former detective Jim Kay, detective Paul Callum and journalist Clifford Birchall.
